Publisher's Summary

The fog of war clouds everything. Enemies lurk in the shadows, within the very fleet sworn to protect United Earth. Conspiracies and murder abound, and in the background.... The stalled alien invasion lurks.

The Golgothic ship has burrowed deep into the core of Saturn's moon Titan, whose mass slowly but inexorably increases. The Dolmasi, once allies of United Earth in the Second Swarm War, now attack us, unhinged and without reason. And all the while, Admiral Shelby Proctor works to answer the most urgent questions of all: what was a piece of the old ISS Victory doing inside the Golgothic ship? And was it Captain Tim Granger's voice that whispered from the doomed ship, "Shelby, they're coming?"

And ...are they the Swarm? If they are, God help us all.

Worst book in the series

Too much intrigue by stupid leaders. It was irritating to the preposterous end. I was waiting for this book. I'm not sure how he redeems the series after all of the off putting tangents the main characters now find themselves on.

The story is good

I have enjoyed the story so far, but I am getting tired of all the dysfunctional characters running around stabbing each other in the back. There is too much political crap in the series for my liking.

Also, the the author seems to lean towards atheism--at least with the main character.

Best book of the series

This is the second time I’ve listened to this adventure. This is what these are after all. I listen to escape the reality of my life. Morning after morning when my eyes open I realize I am still here. Mechanically my torso raises and feet still numb plant themselves on a bare wooden floor. My once tight crew cut hair falls across my shoulders and mingles with my I don’t give a damn beard.
But when I reach for my personal imprisonment device, a spark goes off. Now cradling my precious I look to see how many hours, minutes I have of escape time. Because of this I am now a Granderite. So thank you Mr. author and word speaker for these moments of respite.

Great performance, fast paced story

I enjoyed the performance. Greg Tremblay characters we're interesting and well done. The story was fast-paced in the action was very good. It kept my interest throughout.

Was expecting more

This one didn't have the detailed battles like the others. Still a good story line following the originals. I was just expecting more.

Slow and boring.

Like the title says, "Slow and boring'
I can't say I really connected to any of the characters. It was quite a struggle to finish.

Jumped the Shark

The first 3 books were fantastic. The fourth struggled to justify itself, and this one finally has convinced me to abandon the series. The surgery seems to think that everything needs to one up itself. The enemies need to be bigger. The problems need to be more desperate. The solutions come out of nowhere, and are fantastical, such as dreams and predictions of the future. The conflict from within needs to be more crippling, to the point where the characters seem like they can't be real people, because they are that stupid.

Things have just gotten out of the authors control, and it's just not interesting anymore.
