Publisher's Summary

Some enemies don’t get mad. They get even.  

Logan Conner and Wholesale Slaughter won the day on Revelation, but the Starkad Supremacy doesn’t like failure. If they can’t beat Sparta on the battlefield, they’ll make them fold from within.  

It’s been over 20 years since the failed coup that killed the rightful Guardian and put Logan’s father on the throne of Sparta, but the same resentments and family rivalries still burn bright. It doesn’t take much for a dissatisfied political rival to be converted into an enemy agent.  

The traitors strike without warning, and in the space of a day, Logan is on the run, without his father, without his throne, without the Spartan military to back him up. The only friends he can count on are his brother, Terrin, his fiancée, Katy, and the rest of Wholesale Slaughter.  

If Starkad and their allies think this war is over, they don’t know Logan Conner.  

Narrated by the award-winning Marc Vietor.

WOW WHAT A FANTASTIC CONTINUATION!

Absolutely awesome. There was so much tension, action and sometimes heartbreaks. Loss of loved ones who valiantly fight for the sake of freedom and for all. Logan is a wondrous hero leading his small army fighting against all odds. Beautiful. Well performed by Marc Vietor who brought the characters to life. Excellent plot and I am looking forward to the next book, hopefully soon. Bravo for a well written series by Rick Partlow.

Enjoyed the parts that followed the main character

While well written, for me the story spent a lot of time on the antagonists point of view. I enjoy tales told from fewer points of view and to stick mostly with the protagonist. Learning the villains plans along with the main character makes the story flow better for me...and keeps me guessing. I do not plan to continue with the series. But would be interested in trying different works in the future from this author.

Too Contrived

I have really liked this series until this book. Although I am glad I listened to this story on Audible, I will not continue with any future books in the series. Much of the story was good and in keeping with the series. However, there were two major issues in this book for me. Spoiler alert here: The first issue is that too many of the main characters are killed off and the secondary characters were not developed enough to fill the void. Second, the technology discovered at Terminus by Sparta was so advanced, the smartest people were unable to full understand the Star Drive and no one could figure out what particles were being fired by the beam weapon. Yet, the bad guys were somehow able to secure enough data, figure out how everything works and then build a Star Drive war ship in a matter of months, all in order to leave a cliff hanger ending.
I'm sorry, but that's not good writing in my opinion.
