Publisher's Summary

Bobby Sneyd, New Frontiers' CEO, Inc, is worried. 

The company has fallen on hard times, in part due to the activities of a bidding cartel on Terra. Sales are down; transportation income is down, and the prospectors can no longer find the valuable metallic asteroids the company depends on. And as always, jealous nations on Terra look toward Mars and plot to take over and stamp out the upstart nation! 

The prospectors have become restless, angry with the company. For the moment, they lack a leader, but they’re about to find one. Arguably, the last person any of them would have chosen. But not all will follow him.

Despite everything the Republic has been able to do, a criminal class has emerged. For a time, they preyed on the unsuspecting prospectors, but then they turned to an ancient practice: piracy.

Will the human expansion into space, once so promising, collapse, defeated by a combination of human greed and an old criminal endeavor? Or will Chuck, the former NFI chief executive, be able to work with the prospectors to counter this new threat?

Performance was great as always

Unfortunately story was a weak and predictable. This book you can definitely skip out of the series.

Weakest one yet

Ok so I had a few misgivings over the series but in all it has been a good set of books. This last book however for me was weak. I felt the way that the characters were developed was poor and it felt like this whole book was about moving around pieces to transition into future books which is fine but when you have characters shifting positions like they were I just found it disappointing. This book changes its focus onto a different set of characters also, for me this is more like a separate story set within the same universe and in my opinion should of been marketed as such if that was the case I would of most probably given it a higher score.

don't bother

I have to admit that i really struggled with this book. I assumed it would be a sequel in the series , which in part it is, but OMG talk about lame story line. I would not recommend this book, and so substandard compared to the previous books in the series. Just a poor excuse to milk more money from a good series, should have finished sy the last book.
