Publisher's Summary

They emerge from shadows. Hungry for flesh, they scurry forth. They are the marauders, the galaxy's deadliest predators.

And they crave Earth.

Five years ago, we won our first galactic war. We defeated the scum, a race of alien centipedes. But the marauders are stronger, smarter, and crueler by far. And they will show us no mercy.

Marco Emery, hero of the last war, struggles today as a civilian. Shell shock cripples him. Nightmares haunt him. Yet now he must become a soldier again. Now his old platoon must reunite. Together, they must defeat the greatest threat Earth has ever known.

Or humanity will fall.

    "Well it's good, sad and dark more than the last 3."

    Well this one is extremely dark, good but a very sad and depressing book. It is worth the time though.

    "darker then first three books but still good"

    This book is much darker (more depressing) then the first 3 books in the series but still worth listening to. The end of the book gives some hope. I've moved on to book 5 to keep following the gang.

    Kafer did a great job as usual.

    "Almost stopped listening "

    The story line became very poor in the middle. Almost stopped listening to the rest of the book.

    "Unsatisfying ending"

    The book ends in the middle of the climax. So now I have to buy the next book. I'm not a fan of marketing techniques to get me to buy the next book.

    "The old gang is in trouble! Earth Too!"

    A powerful look at how warriors return home. War follows long after victory is declared.

    "Wtf?"

    Loved the first 3 books. This one just didn't make sense to me. It was written well and I can appreciate the ptsd angle but there were so many things that just didn't fit. These characters did a lot of stupid things that I can't reconcile.

    Story
    "Long and obvious setup for the end of the book."
    Any additional comments?

    To be honest I just soldered on through the 2/3 of the middle of the book. Knowing full well what this brutally long setup was all about.

    The whole book was obvious to be honest. It could have been condensed into a character and scene set of chapters in the next book. At the same time I understand why the author tried so hard to create some version of time passing and people changing. It would have made the next book formulaic if it wasn't done. I think honestly there could have been more done with back ground plot elements. This was a missed opportunity to expand the story universe.

    "Depressing. I don't need this in a book."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    People who want to commit suicide.


    What was most disappointing about Daniel Arenson’s story?

    I loved this series. This book, however is just full of negativity, It took over 7 hours for the sun to shine. I don't read books to be absolutely depressed. I really don't understand why an author has to be this negative. The world is bad enough as it is. I hope in the next book he returns to his usual style of entertainment, rather that encourage Vets to commit suicide.
