With the System States Union now crushed and Trojan's new Empire on the rise, former foes become allies in a desperate attempt to prevent not only the collapse of human civilization but also the complete extermination of humanity at the hands of a diabolical new power player. Is salvation really possible, or was it all just rumors?

Rumors of Salvation contains strategic and tactical space battles as part of the grand vista of an interstellar war from the point of view of both high-level strategy and up-close-and-personal fighting.

Good ending of series but a bit rediculous

The war between the Federation and the System States Rebellion took a more ominous twist when a traitorous third faction entered the fray, soon eclipsing both sides in terms of technology and strategic planning and predictability. All seemed lost except for a relatively small hidden brain trust left to save humanity.

The various battle encounters played out interestingly, almost like a game of chess where the rebels were left with only a king and a knight. However, the ability of each side being able to repeatably design, create and manufacture major military advances in a matter of a few years really stretched credulity even for a SciFi novel.

Dietmar Wehr writing itself is still very good and I look forward to reading more of his novels. Jeffrey Kafer narrating performance continued to be a positive contribution to the series.

Great performance held back by bad technology.

Ideas, concepts and technology are not fleshed out nearly enough. Even just a bit of other reading in SciFi your see how much more the different technologies in warfare have been thought about and used such as railguns and KEWs.

Good series

one thing that I respect is the end of a story. The trend as of late is to stretch out the story into as many books as When this happens, I tend to detect it and lose interest after just a couple of books into the series. This end came up a little precipitously as I think that the author, after telling a good story, realized that there wouldn't be enough material to justify another book, so he wrapped it up.

Straight and to the point. Not flowery and over descriptive. Characters were great. I think I might listen to it again. Classic SciFi.

Great series, horrible ending

The story line was great. It built up so much anticipation that the ending was very disappointing and anti climatic. It was almost like the author spent years writing the series then had to make a dead line so he just wrote the last chapter in 10 min.
Jeffery Kafer it's one of my favorite narrators. He did an amazing job with this series.

full of filler

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

rewrite the book to remove all of the idiotic derivative filler concerning stupid majestic controlling people.

What was most disappointing about Dietmar Wehr’s story?

majestic related crap.
