Publisher's Summary

Follow the career of a young officer in the 22nd century genetically engineered space navy.

In the 22nd century, the people of the Solar System have banded together against an alien invasion. Unfortunately, they're losing - badly.

As the only Natural remaining in the genetically engineered officer corps of the United Planet's fleet, Henry Gallant has unique mental abilities that have proven essential to the defense against the Titan invaders. Nevertheless his fellow officers lack faith in him, and worse, he has angered prominent men by speaking truth to power.

Despite this, Admiral Collingsworth has given him command of the Warrior, the most advanced stealth warship in the UP arsenal and ordered him to the alien's main base to spy, intrigue, and disrupt their war capacity.

Gallant's mission leads to risky battles and painful choices, but no choice is more personal, or intimate, than the choice to face your own death. And for Henry Gallant - a flawed young man, in a hopeless situation, against overwhelming odds - a dreadful decision looms before him.

He has only one saving grace - he is unafraid.

Great sequel

Been following this series for a while after it was recommend to me. I really enjoyed the first two books and had high expectations for this book. The dialogue was funny, book was short but tightly woven.

I am really enjoying this series.

I love following characters as they progress up the chain of command. Very good series in the space opera genre. I recommend this book. Now for the obligatory: "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

Excellent story!

Well written, with main character being well structured intellectually who makes well thought out choices as often as possible.
Not recommended for ages under 16 as some situations are violent or adult oriented.

Good read and enjoyable character development

The story is well developed however the performance just wasn't there for me. The recording felt a little hollow and not very dynamic.

Consistantly good

Peter Alesso delivers another good story. I especially like the way he introduces and builds up new characters into the story and how his feud with the rich and powerful father and son continues. My only criticism is I wish the story was longer

The right kind of man will go to the stars.

The right kind of man will go to the stars.
Henry Gallant was a Natural, born without genetic engineering. Which often made life doubly difficult, as he had to fight not only the alien Titans but also the prejudice of some of the other officers in the Fleet who believed that only the genetically enhanced humans were fit for command positions. This was especially true of his former captain and son of the powerful multi millionaire corporate leader, Anton Neuman, who had stolen and married Gallant's first true love, Kelsey.
With temporary command of his first ship, Warrior, Henry is tasked with an intelligence mission and the disruption of the alien forces. Unfortunately, Neuman is still his superior as commander of the Achilles.
Written simply and easy to read, this third book in the series, although stand alone, builds upon the two preceding stories and a better characterisation of the primary protagonists begins to emerge. A good storyline with a mix of fighting action and interpersonal relationships keeps the reader's interest throughout and the narration by Rich Miller is well delivered with good intonation, pace and individually voices characters.
This series is improving all the time. My thanks to the rights holder of Henry Gallant and the Warrior, who, at my request, freely gifted me a complimentary copy, via Audiobook Boom. A worthwhile military S.F. read
