Publisher's Summary

Book 6 of the Dark New World series.

To the victors go the spoils.

As Cassy and her Clan celebrate their freedom and the Empire's defeat, Ethan - aka Dark Ryder - receives a message from his secret masters that forces him to choose between his own life and the fate of the Clan. Meanwhile, as their enemies loom in the shadows unseen, a new threat arrives from far to the west - the Empire's master launches a new proxy war against the Confederation.

It's a shadow war that threatens to boil over into a direct conflict, one the wounded Alliance can scarcely face, much less win. As divisions between allies grow hotter, threatening to tear them apart, Cassy hatches a daring plot to unite the Confederation and deal a fatal blow to the Empire and its master.

But will a chance at victory be worth the price they all must pay to achieve it?

More of a book about battlefield than others

I’ve enjoyed every book in the series, but this book has been much more of a battlefield book than the others. There was a significant amount of time and Detail spent on each battle and preparation rather than the surrounding story and struggles. While I’ve loved this series I think this is my last one to read. Time to move on to a fresh new story rather than carrying this one forward too far.

Jumping the Shark for a character driven reader

While Kevin Pierce could make reading the phone book interesting, this series is about over for me. I am a character-driven reader, and none of the newer characters were developed as well as the first few books. I think it is just what happens on some of these long serious though. However, if you are interested in some Orwellian kinds of plots, the character stuff might not be a big deal. There is way less of the plausible and way more of the fantastic. They are clever authors, and if that's your thing...keep reading! Love the authors, and would read a new series, but would need a really good reason to revisit this series again.

Same old stuff

This book series started out awesome. Book 3 lost me. Too many resources to be realistic.
But it is fiction

weak

I truly enjoyed the first book in the series: but the last two have just been lacking. I bought books 5 & 6 hoping to get some of that initial action and great story line, but it didn't come happen.

Do not waste your money on this one.

Worse book of the series. I’m finished with this series. Difficult to follow and very boring story line.
