Publisher's Summary

The Messenger and his people continue their long fight against the Golden, but the war has just begun.

When they discover reports of a missing colony ship, their search will uncover a crime so terrible that the battle lines will be drawn in blood. Following clues across the stars, Dash will bring the forces of his new navy to a cause that will only end in one of two ways: total victory or complete destruction.

There’s only room for one winner in this ever-expanding galaxy, and Dash aims for it to be him.

Good Story + Great Performance, Far Too Short!

I love the Messenger Series, but $25 for just over 6 hours of content per installment is highway robbery.

quite entertaining but way too short

This should be half a book. Seems like the author is stretching it out.
Technical research could be better.
Story was a lot of fun.

1 Credit = 6 hours

I love this sort of space warfare scifi. Simple, easy to get into. Character development is thin but it is there. What is glaringly obnoxious is the strategy of milking revenue by breaking it up into 6 hour chunks per credit.
Perhaps this is the only way the authors have found to make it worthwhile for their effort, but it is out of alignment with other better written titles in this genre with more well known narrators.

Keeps On Being Great

Book 5 of The Messenger series. Again I will say that this series is a great read/listen for any science fiction fan. The plot, storyline, characters, character development, interactions, enemies - it just keeps getting better and better - and it doesn't add things in a chaotic manner. The entire series does a great job of staying organized, being believable, and at some point answering any concerns or questions you might have. After Book 4, I had concerns about power cores and the seeming lack of priority they now had - yeah, you might need to read the series before getting this. BUT at the end of this book they are once again becoming a priority - which makes sense. I just need to be patient. LOL

Read/listen to the series - you can do much worse, and I have. I also want to do a shout out to the narrator, Jeffrey Kafer. He does a great job with the narration. Very well paced, change of voice for each character - to the degree that you know who is speaking the first sentence is out of his mouth!! He is a great voice talent!!!

The best of the series so far.

The story has steadily unfolded, but with this one things step up a pace as the crew goes on attack mode. The motivation for vengeance is believable and I found myself rooting for Dash and the team.
