Publisher's summary

Queenie is back and better than ever! Abbey's recent experiences have changed her, but is it for the better? She's learned the truth about the Seraphim, and General Kett's betrayal has left her to wonder if there's anyone outside of the Rejects she can trust. When the Nephilim begin their assault on the Republic and her daughter is caught in the cross-fire, she'll have no choice but to depend on Captain Mann to do what he can to help. As much as Abbey wants to go home, she has an entire galaxy to protect, and a mission whose outcome could determine the fate of trillions. Find the Keeper. Restore the Covenant. Save the Universe. It's all in a day's work for the Rejects. Long live the Queen!

Books are too short.

It seems like a book was broken into 2 short books.
The books are good, but they should be 12 hours long at a minimum.

Emotional

The story keeps getting better and better. It’s interesting to see how they break down good and evil (God and the devil) on more of a scientific level.

Forbes and Hays are awesome!

I listened to this entire series when it was newly released. The story has flaws, but we’re all flawed humans, right? As someone raised Catholic, I especially loved the touch of Catholicism in this series as both antagonist and protagonist forces behind the scenes. Was it blasphemy? Frag no! Then add in the astounding vocalizations by Jeff Hays who gave every major character a distinctive voice and character. His human vocal chords are on par with the bet of Mel Blanc. If that doesn’t compute, look it up. Anyway…not anyways…I hate writers who don’t know correct English grammar. What is accepted is very different from what is supposed to be taught and learned. Oh well, I’m digressing. Jeff Hays ALONE did all male and female voices. He is one of the few narrators smart enough to use the inexpensive, but very effective voice altering technology to its best results. Sometimes too much delay or reverb, but the entire series was a masterpiece. Now, he is the main force behind the troop called Sound Booth Theater. Don’t believe the voices come from one person, watch their YouTube channel. They even perform bits from different book projects they’ve done or might be new. I’ve read the remarks that say negative things about Jeff, and when inspecting them, they never have anything good to say. I believe those kinds of people are called Trolls. I’d call them something else. And even more ridiculous when they can’t even make proper sentences using correct English words.

Deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole

Queenie adds to her rejects and continues to battle evil. Good storyline and good performance.

Fun and enjoyable.

I'm thoroughly enjoying this series. it's light listening and a lot of fun. Just noticed the sound engineering, echos in large rooms and clocks when certain species are speaking, beautifully done. I'm looking forward to listening to more.

Not as good as the books before it but still good.

This book had an empire strikes back sort of middle book feel.
I would definitely recommend getting it to anyone who thinks they will get the one after it also.

Hooked by the hells rejects

I love the fresh scifi that we get from M.R. Forbes. I enjoy the smattering of lore and legends that almost gives a fantasy feel. I really care about the characters. I enjoy the story of redemption. The narrator is engaging and really pushes the story along.

So good

Picks up right where the last book ends, and doesn’t slow down.

So good. The characters, the impeccable Jeff Hays narration. Make this an anime with Jeff doing the voice work!!

The Rejects Kicking Ass Everywhere

Each book just gets better. The twists and turns always keep you guessing what is going to happen next. Time for book 6.
