Publisher's Summary

When Terra knelt to an alien Imperium, they guaranteed our safety and our future. But now their enemies are coming for us.

To preserve humanity's survival and freedom in a hostile galaxy, Annette Bond tied her world to the A!Tol Imperium, taking on the mantle of Duchess of Terra to rule humanity in the Imperium's name.

The A!Tol have provided technology, ships, and money to uplift the new Duchy of Terra, but those gifts come with strings attached. The Imperium has their own plan for Terra - but Bond has tricks of her own.

With enough time, she can build Earth a place in the galaxy. But as Bond's many enemies gather their forces, the clouds of war threaten not only the recovering Terra but the entire Imperium.

Great book but it has some problems!

The only problem I have with this book is that it goes out of its way to push it's LGB relationships in the readers face. I have nothing against gays and I support them, I have a lot of gay friends and family but I don't appreciate any type of Relationship whether it be gay or straight being pushed in my face I just want to enjoy the story without all this political agenda bull crap! But overall it is a great story!

Not as good as the first book.

While this is still a good book, it is not as good as the first book in the series. The author starts to belabor the romance aspects of the story, to the point they become cheesy and forced. The narration is great throughout.

One of the best books I've listened

One of the best books I've listened to for quite a while, at least among the top ten I've ever listened to.

The author and the narrator have produced such an amazing piece that let's the mind drift into the story of the book, and let's the listener completely forget the world outside of the book.

I've listened to other books by the author and other narrations by the narrator, and I am a big fan of both, but together what they deliver is nothing short of a masterpiece.

The book provokes a full range of emotional responses, and was thrilling and captivating from beginning to end.

Excellent follow up!

I was hesitant to read about how the author was going to follow up after the end of the first book. I’m glad I took the plunge and continued the series.

The author did an excellent job of balancing the complex intricacies of building up the Taryn tech base as well as having the main character deal with an ongoing insurgency. The new secondary characters also helped add to the overall depth of the story.

Overall an excellent blend of military and civilian lifestyles coming together to make the tear and duchy a whole lot stronger. Also enjoyed the space combat! Can't wait to read the next one!

Loved it!

Hillary Huber as narrator is amazing. Story is fun and interesting. Couldn't stop listening and am now up way past my bedtime writing a review because I enjoyed it so immensely. Definitely will find more books by this author and narrator.

Typical liberal progressive nonsense

They took a traitor and tried too convince you she is a hero. Just like a liberal. Morals snd values completely screwed up. I was rooting for the weathermen.

Really enjoyable sci-fi romp

Second story in the series.
It’s quite enjoyable although the timelines for what is achieved are a bit unrealistic, I love the characters and I love the seemingly reasonable explanation for how the Duchess achieves the monumental feats against earths enemies, whilst turning the tables on allies to reposition terra into an important political player in the empire. Engaging stuff.

stretched story and horrible narration

first book in the series was a decent one - the second was a struggle to finish. the author took on too many topics to cover consequently covering them thinly. the book sort of comes to life right at the end, but you have to sit through 10hrs of hard slog to get there. narrator's attempt at accents is quite disturbing and off-putting. going to drop the series here...

this time they win.

the first conquerors may have won but at least they were nice people, the second lot didn't and weren't that good.
I enjoyed this book very much and look forward to the next book in the series.
