Publisher's Summary

One Last Starship Is Earth's Last Hope!

The Earth had four fleets to fight the invading enemy. The first fleet valiantly protected earth, but it wasn’t enough. Three fleets would arrive soon and end the threat...but they never came through the wormhole. One ship escaped the massacre, fleeing deep into space while the rest of Earth’s defenses were destroyed. Only the barrier around the planet keeps the enemy from finishing what they started.

Ten years have passed for the USS Orlando. Captain Brian Shepard and his dwindling crew are dedicated to saving their home. The mighty Tol'konian Empire is equally determined to capture them. Captain Shepard is certain there is a way to find those missing three fleets. The answer rests with a human scientist lost in the galaxy, but when the crew of the USS Orlando locates him, they encounter a strange alien who can help them find the answers they seek.

Alone, hunted, and scared, Earth's last starship is Earth's last hope. The Tol'konian Empire controls most of the galaxy and will stop at nothing until they have a secret that Earth is protecting. Can the crew of the Orlando survive long enough to save their home planet? How did 3,000 ships vanish in a blink of the eye? Can a crew of five change the course of history and save humankind from extinction?

The breath of fresh air I didn't know I needed

I was given this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

I initially went into this book expecting to listen on a higher speed, since that's what I usually do with fiction books. It lets me almost watch the books like a movie in my mind's eye. But I quickly found myself ticking the speed down to just enjoy the ride. This was a character-rich story, which I love. Definitely going to look for more by the same author.

Tiptoeing in tapshoes.

Ten years ago, in a desperate attempt to save the Earth from invasion, an impenetrable barrier was created around it. It stopped the would be invaders but then became the problem: without any means of collapsing the shelf, Earth was slowly dying with. All of Earth's defensive fleet had been destroyed: only one space vessel survived, a small but agile craft, the Orlando, now captained by the ship's first officer, a scientist Jack Shepherd. With the enemy fleet again massing and Earth itself suffocating, the Orlando and her crew are the last and only hope to save humanity.
This might sound like a military S.F. book and there is a little of the space fighting which comes with that genre, but essentially it is a study of the interactions between the crew. And it is a really fun read, amusing and quite light-hearted. When a new crew member joins the, a cat like some rescued from a security prison, for example, there is an enjoyable contrast in culture over how to woo someone o the opposite sex.
Narrator Josiah Bildner gives a fine performance, his warm tones matching the lightheadedness of the text, plus his individually differentiated voices of all of the characters the excellent, very much adding to the enjoyment of the story.

This is a fun book so do not expect anything intense. My thanks to the rights holder of The Last Starship, who, at my request, freely gifted me a complimentary copy, via Audiobook Boom. Some of the characters were a delight, especially an alien nicknamed simply Can't. The story itself was almost incidental. More a cozy science fiction than intensive battle action story.

SciFi Fantasy Adventure

I did not like the book cover but the blurb had me intrigued and the audiobook hooked. There was plenty of adventure and it was fast paced. I would recommend it to those who love scifi adventures.
