The battle at the galactic center had been a great victory for the Federation and the Alliance but at a tremendous cost. The Battleship Avenger and her fleets had vanished being drawn into a great white vortex at the moment of victory. For over four years, the mystery of what happened to the Avenger has haunted the Federation.

We get it, the special five miss each other but we don’t have to hear about it every 10 to 15 minuets. We also get that Kevin likes hamburgers, stop reiterating that point. Hard to get through in one setting you will have to break up the listening to get past the repeating themes. The narrator could also pause between transitions, because he doesn’t you can miss dramatic transitions.

Captain William Sparhawk flies Earth's single starship on a voyage of exploration. His crew of veteran spacers begins the mission with high hopes and the best of intentions, but the universe has other plans. Instead of space merchants and potential allies, they discover Earth's impending doom. Sparhawk must decide whether to hunt down enemy scouts to keep Earth's new starship a secret or to head home to warn Star Guard of the danger. Either way, he's ignited an interstellar war.

I am a BV Larson fan who greatly enjoyed the Star Force Series and other works. This story and character is extremely juvenile in its writing and interactions. The main characters understanding of honor and his reactions to the environment is frankly ridiculous. The author's sexual encounters of military officers is also ridiculous. It seems that the captain always has to give an order two or three times before its followed. Maybe this was an early work because BV writings have not been so bad as this.

Once rebels find themselves facing off against the Earth Confederation, the United States of North America is now the dominant force in negotiations with the interstellar Sh'daar Collective. But just as the marines root out the last violent dissenters, an alien ship of unknown origin suddenly flees Earth's orbit. Is it mere coincidence...or a terrifying omen?

Too much repetition in descriptions...this is the four or fifth in the series there is no need to continually try to introduce the reader to concepts from the earlier books. Also too much physics explanations verse expanded dialogue and character development.
