Publisher's Summary

Betrayed by allies. Beset by new foes. Earth faces its darkest hour since the Xaros invasion.

The Toth come to the solar system with a fleet of warships, and they demand the only tool that can rekindle the human race. It falls on Marine Lieutenant Hale to negotiate a pact that will save the human race at the cost of its soul - or start a war with a race of alien predators.

    "satisfying installment in a great series"

    A lot of my audible purchases are based on following narrators I like; Luke Daniels is one of my all time favorites. I've stumbled onto more than one new author this way and Richard Fox is the latest great find. His story telling is clean and well thought out, and his characters are engaging and relatable. I've enjoyed alternately cursing and cheering for Mark Ibara. Each novel has had a satisfying conclusion, but the murky background of increasingly complex alien politics and the steadily unfolding mystery of the Xaros' origin and purpose leaves the story plenty of room to grow. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

    Story
    "awesome"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great action described with the perfect amount of battle scenes, scifi techno-babble, human anguish and a healthy does of humor


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Valdar-strong moral core
    mark ibarra-cunning and ruthless in service of humanity
    Gaul -she is a badass
    toth-wonderfully disgusting and evil


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    read with feeling and multiple voices helps listeners better visualize the story


    Any additional comments?

    I don't agree/understand the anger against the tank grown humans and the author's preoccupation with souls; seems anachronistic. While scifi grappling with whether ai is alive/have souls is not new (data, ceylons) , these Procedurals are created with egg and sperm and are unique individuals

    Myself a geeky engineer. I like in the following order, 1 - SciFi, 2 - Fantasy, 3 - Thrillers, 4 - Mysteries. My most most memorable book was "Dune" by Frank Herbert. My most thought provoking book, "On A Pale Horse" by Peirce Anthony.

    "Can't get enough"

    I'm going through these books so fast, I need to purchase extra credits. I'm always asking what's going to happen next? How are they going to get out of this one? And chuckling at the things Standish says.

    "Awesome continuation"

    Great character depth/complexity without getting stuck on inane minor details. Seriously, well done. I care about the fates of nearly every major character at this juncture.

    The plot continues to draw me in. Good job of expanding the universe/world without falling victim to having 20 plotlines.

    Luke Daniels shines as always. As with R.C. , he could narrate a cereal commercial and have a good chance of drawing me in. Paired with a great story like this.. Enough said.

    "Another great story in the series"

    The series seams to be one large story broken down into many books and this one will leave you wanting more.

    "Great series"

    Even after the fourth book, I am still engaged in the story. The variety of characters and fantastic voice talent give nice color to a fast moving military science fiction book that sports both space and land battles.

    "Great continuation of the saga"

    It is only now, after book 4 that I can ignore the terrible accents trying to be Scottish or Australian. The narration is overall not bad at all and the story, caricature development and speed is excellent. I think if I had to choose book three is the best so far. Hope this helps
