Publisher's Summary

The time is opportune for Alex Racine. Omnian efforts and sacrifices culminate in a singular opportunity. With good fortune, Alex will bring together the diverse races the Omnians have encountered.

Alex selects the human colonies of New Terra, Haraken, Omnia, and Méridien to solicit their attendance. Unknowingly, he sails toward a deadly encounter.

The Omnians have their supporters, but they also have their detractors. Nowhere is that truer than on Méridien. Alex, Renée de Guirnon, his partner, and Julien, the SADE leader, have continually disrupted the long-held norms of the powerful Confederation Houses.

In one instance, Alex wins the rights for SADEs to be freed from their boxes. In another, he presses the Confederation Council to construct ships and supply crews to support Omnia Ships’ fights against the dangerous Nua’ll spheres and Artifice.

However, Alex’s influence is most heavily felt when Mahima Ganesh, the tyrannical Council Leader, is deposed. Her supporters never forgive Alex for his trespass, and one House Leader decides Alex must pay for that insult.

Leader Darse Lemoyne is a clever man, who hopes to deal with Alex. Also, he desperately wants to be rid of an ambitious daughter. Daphne Lemoyne covets the House, while she pretends to be a doting daughter. If Darse succeeds in this plot, he rids himself of one problem or the other. If fortune stands by him, he will be done with both.

Mediocre Finish, poor narrator substitute.

I've enjoyed most of this series but the last books, since Espero, hasn't lived up to the quality of the first half of the series.

This book was better than the last but a really weak ending to one of my favorite series.

Last, the new narrator mangled my enjoyment. Why change a great narrator for one that slaughters the pronunciation of DASETA. Omnia is my favorite book and every time Ms. Poole mispronounces the word it throws me out of the story.

The only thing bad about these books are they came to an end. I would put these books are comparison with Frank Herberts "Dune" series. Great reading!!!!

Love this series.

No spoilers.. I just love this series. It explores a what-if scenario of people actually being kind and the things that can be accomplished if we actually considered others more than our own personal advancements all the time. A very unique trait in this genre.

Still so many questions!!!!

A fitting end to this series, but still so many questions. What’s happen to Alex and Renee. What about Teague. Will the messinants ever be found. What of house Braxton. What of the houses aligned against Alex. Still so many questions.

Weird ending.

The storyline was great but the ending sucked. It was as if the author got tired of writing the series and wanted to just get it over with.

Awesome Conclusion to a Fantastic Series

This is book 20 in the Silver Ship series. I have thoughly enjoyed listening to the entire series. The creation of so many entities that interact and converse with each other. Violence is at a minimum and the story is performed well! Thanks so much for pulling the threads together before ending the stories.

Narrator was a poor choice for this book

Narrator did not do as good of a job as the man who used to narrate. The story was kind of boring. Great first books in the silvership series. The last two books were not his better books
