Publisher's Summary

On her last mission, HMS Invincible discovered an alien threat beyond human understanding: a sentient virus that has already absorbed a number of intelligent races into its multitude and now intends to do the same to humanity. Defeat means the end of everything, the end of existence as nothing more than mindless host-bodies, the end of humanity and its alien allies alike. The stakes could not be higher.

As a deeply divided humanity struggles to prepare a defense, with enemies inside and outside the human sphere just lurking to strike, Invincible is sent deep into alien space on what should have been a simple reconnaissance mission. But, as Captain Shields and his crew begin their mission, it rapidly becomes clear that a juggernaut is bearing down on Earth....

And, no matter what they do, they may never make it home again.

Fighting Viruses

Overall a great continuation of the Ark Royal series. From battles in space to planetary raids this book covers it all to include threats from sentient microorganisms. The reader performs well except for the Texas accent, which was horrible.

An exciting addition to the Ark Royal series

This volume continues the struggle between humanity and an almost incomprehensible form of alien life. This struggle is a most unusual form of warfare, due to the nature of the alien species. It is exciting, and almost impossible to put down. I am looking forward to the continuation of this most excellent series.

Good Read

Much better than a couple of earlier books which seemed to boarder on Stella Star. Thanks for the good read.

Addictive

I have read all of the Ark Royal series except for number 11. The style is strange with characters often speculating about unlikely outcomes. There is also a weird obsession about the aristocracy.Also repetitive statements about Stellar Star movies, the cost of missiles, drones etc and how using them upsets the bean counters. Despite this I am hooked and will be listening to Book 14 when it is published!
