Publisher's Summary

A war older than the nation. An enemy with agents at every turn. An ancient foe with an offer of peace.

The alliance with the Elfin Warriors has allowed the US government’s supernatural forces, the Omicron Branch, to hold the line against the demons and take the war to the Vampire Familias, defeating them in battle and reclaiming their resources.

Victory against the vampires, however, leaves David White with a moral dilemma as he captures an entire convoy of freshly turned vampires: beyond saving, but innocent of their species’ crimes. Duty only allows one fate for them - but then an ancient vampire arrives to negotiate for their freedom.

Letting them go drags David into the middle of a political nightmare as the Omicron Branch must decide which is more important: Omicron’s authority and revenge for their dead or the very Constitution and people they are sworn to defend.

Well.....

How do I put this.....
Over all, I found this book sort of dull. Granted you had the ginormous fight scenes with all sorts of super duper magic. But I feel that becomes the problem with some of these stories. To maintain reader interest it becomes too big for itself. The simplest plot lines always makes for an easier more believable story. Not everyone needs to become Luke Skywalker. We are not all out to save the Empire.

Love this series !!!

I can’t wait for the last book of this series to get narrated by Ray Porter which have done such an excellent job on the first three books.

Glynn Stewart fully surprised me with his excellent story telling, surly I’ll follow his next creations.

Full heartedly recommended for all.

Absolutely amazing series and book

This is tied for my favorite book series. It also has my absolute favorite narrator. I tore through this book in about a day and a half. That is about as fast as I can do any audiobook with my work schedule. It had me turning off my favorite TV show just to sit and listen. I can only hope she will turn this into a series similar to BV Larson's Star Force which had 12 books in the series.

Getting better!

I felt the first couple books were okay, but lacking in development of the plot. The story world is starting to expand in this book and things are getting more developed. Additionally, the author explores some interesting ideas about vampires relationship with society at large. I’m glad to see the the Onset series is shaping up nicely. I have one recommendation to the author though. You need to make David White suffer more. He is overpowered and often times there is no sense of threat as he faces new obstacles. Basically, it it the Superman problem all over again. I suggest you do something to endanger White in a way that has real and lasting repercussions. Don’t just invent a kryptonite MacGuffin. I would suggest go rereading Dresden Files again. At one point, Harry almost loses his hand while channeling hellfire to kill a nest of vampires. He can only channel hellfire because he accidentally has a fallen angel in his head after grabbing a possessed coin to save his best friend’s toddler. Harry is making heroic choices to save people and endangering his anatomy and soul in the process. You need to do this with David. For example, you underplayed the shoulder injury from the elfin blade. A few vague references to residual shoulder aching is lame. Have him get his ass kicked because his shoulder gives out in a fight. Make him feel mortal again. Also, DO NOT KILL KATE MASON. I know Joss Whedon kills off token characters to create the illusion of loss, but it is a cheap trick. Kate is good. Use her. Develop her. Put her in danger to motivate David. Do not kill her or I will not buy the next book, unless you do it in a way that feels authentic to the story. Fucking authors!
