Publisher's Summary

War. The word spreads throughout the Confederation...the long-expected Union invasion has come. The enemy is strong, their fleets larger and more powerful than intelligence reports had predicted. They have broken through the forward defenses, sent the Confederation's proud fleets into an ignominious retreat.

Captain Tyler Barron and the crew of the battleship Dauntless are light-years from the front lines, at Archellia, waiting for their damaged battleship to be repaired. Their ship is only just operational, but there is no time. The Confederation forces need every reinforcement they can get, and Barron and his survivors board their vessel...and rush to the battle lines.

When they get there, they encounter nothing but fleeing ships and shattered fleets. The Confederation is losing the war, falling back steadily, yielding system after system to the invaders. The Union fleets continue inexorably forward, seemingly immune to the supply constraints that have bogged down past invasions. Dauntless finds herself trapped, cut off from the rest of the fleet along with another Confed battleship and a trio of small escort vessels...deep behind the rapidly moving front lines.

Barron must make a choice. Pull back, try to find a way to get around the enemy, and rejoin the fleet. Or press on, strike deep behind the enemy advance, an almost suicidal thrust toward the Union's main logistical supply base...and the one way Tyler Barron can think of to buy the fleet the time it needs to regroup. To survive.

    "A very fun ride"

    The story was an excellent ride from start to finish. The commander lacks a bit of common sense in some sections of the story, sections obviously meant to let his subordinates shine, but only one such section is blaringly obvious. Performance of the narrator was very good. Can't wait for the next book

    "Military SciFi at its best!"
    What did you like best about this story?

    This is a classic military scifi book, it checks all the boxes for a great series and awesome story.


    What does Jeffrey Kafer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jeffrey Kafer is quickly becoming one of my favorite narrators, I am starting to buy audiobooks because he is listed as the narrator. Ever since Ryk Brown's series I look forward to anything Mr Kafer narrates, especially 'The Empires Corps'.

    Story
    "You can skip this one"

    Chapter after chapter, heroic people face insurmountable odds to accomplish the impossible while facing certain death performing their patriotic duty, because they have no choice, in places indistinguishable from one another. Nothing original here.

    The narrator isn't bad, but would benefit from learning to not drop his voice to the bottom of his range at the end of every phrase. And he should just simply Not attempt accents, especially French. Not Ever.

    "These are just military sci-fi done really well"

    I am hooked on this series, the author, and the narrator. There are many things that I really like and only a few that I think could be better. For the most part, this is well written and with a plot and story. The theme is sort of the same....against all odds...they win. The fighter and bomber pilots seem to get wiped out every book. Like I said, some things could be better but the characters are well done and it's just a fun book. The narrator is my one of my favorites and he does an excellent job.

    "good story, Eeyore narrator."

    I couldn't get past the first half chapter because I couldn't listen to him anymore. He ends every sentence sounding like Eeyore, drawing out the last word everytime dull and lifeless, extremely flat. Just cannot bring myself to listen to him any further, I guess I will just have to finish the book on my kindle, because I like the author and series. Shame.

    "Bad Voices and accents, fun book."

    The first book had a narrator that was about 1000 times better. Some of the attempts at accents were cringy. If this had been the first book I would have returned it. And why does he end every word like a preacher! Please get someone better please!

    "Firrst half was a yawn fest"

    The first half of the book was a snooze fest that I almost didn't make it through. Given how it ended I am not sure if I want to read the third book because I expect more yawning in the beginning.

    Story
    "Another good One"

    Having inadvertently listened to this book before Book 1, I felt a little lost when I first started and, in some respects, the story was spoilt for me. That said, when I did get into it, it was every bit as good as Book 1 with lots of action and nail biting.

    I am so glad they switched narrator to Mark Boyett as I felt he brought more feeling to the voices, especially Tyler Barron.

    I look forward to the next instalment.
