Publisher's Summary

With the invading aliens temporarily driven from Human-and-NeHaw-occupied space, all the races are using the pause to recover and rebuild, both friend and foe alike. For the NeHaw, that means pressuring the Earth to allow them to rebuild and rearm their fleet from the Wawobash shipyards, a risk that could easily backfire.

For Jake, the lingering concerns of a lost crew with the un-activated Artificial Life installed in the captured saucer still dominate his thoughts. While he obsesses on that, others look to the origins of the mysterious alien invaders in the universe's unexplored regions.

General Jake Thomas must face the fact that he can't be the human recovery leader and an intergalactic explorer at the same time. Therefore, it is now left to others of his inner circle to take up the mantle and charge forth into the unknown while he holds down the fort at home.

In the end, it is a surprise to see who rises to the occasion and proof that the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.

narration needs work

well I found the story to be as fantastic as every other book in the series I did find the narration to the less than optimal. I especially found the constant switching of voices to be unnerving and distracting and the high pitched female voice attempt was somewhat laughable. the first time I heard both I broke out laughing at the high-pitched female voice while confused at the sudden change in voice I didn't care for either and I found them to be a change that would rather have not had in the first place

Great series, why change the narrator?

This is one of my favorite series. David Drummond did an excellent job bringing the different characters to life in the first 4 books. Why change the narrator for books 5 and 6. Daniel Thomas May is a great narrator also, but it's almost impossible to listen to books 5 and 6 and not think about how all the voices change. I still have all 5's on the reading because I don't want to him a bad review. He did a great job, it's just not what I was expecting the characters to sound like. I really hope that in the future they can redo the books with either narrator doing all of them. i would prefer Drummond but probably wouldn't mind if May redid the first 4. Just my thoughts, again, nothing against Mr. May.

Utter GARBAGE!

First off let me state for the record that I LOVE the Alice series.

My biggest issue is the choice for narrator. STOP TRYING TO SOUND LIKE A 5 YEAR OLD GIRL. It totally distracts from the book and it is just awful to listen to.

Issue number 2: the story line is becoming too fragmented. Charles lamb is putting many different stories into a single book, which is fine, but then he splits them into teeny tiny little fragments that make it hard to get into the story. It’s too all over the place.

Terrible

Charles I love your books and I love Alice but the book it feels like you put no effort at all, I could not even complete the book that how bad it is. The story is so so slow there is no depth to any characters but lots of waffle, the main characters are not there this world concept is so cool but feels like it falls so short what happens to continuities from other books ?
