Publisher's Summary

The marauders, terrors from deep space, hit us hard.

Our starships shattered. Our armies collapsed. Our cities crumbled.

As Earth smolders, the marauders imprison us in camps. They farm us like cattle. They torture us for sport. Earth weeps.

But there is hope.

The Ghost Fleet, an ancient alien armada, might still exist in deep space. In a single starship, Sergeant Marco Emery and his friends seek this mythical fleet. They must find it. They must return with its might. Or the marauders will kill us all.

    "This book is so stupid. Worst in series."

    Characters in the book are totally illogical, stupid and incompetent. Entire story plot is also illogical. On one hand entire human armies(millions of soldiers with starships) were unable to defeat enemies. On the other we have bunch of country bumpkins holed in military base and defeating ravagers without breaking sweat. This book is in deep need of heavy editorials.

    "Might've been 3rd Rate Sci Fi, Ruined by Filler"

    Lead character's repetitive introspective whining combined with emotionless monotone narration ruins what could've been a 3rd rate (?) fun simple science fiction action romp. One dimensional bad guys alien race whose sole focus is conquer, torture, kill and eat brains is too ridiculous and the introduction of the alien ship as actually an animal is more than the suspension of disbelief can account for. The same over and over (and over and over and OVER) musings of the human characters, especially Marco seems to be fluff to stretch out the book. And is the SAME crap in every single book. (#4 was the absolute worst - I'd recommend skipping it completely - it has no redeeming action). It's annoying to the point I wouldn't follow the series if I had to pay more than the Kindle Unlimited 1.99 price. As they've raised most of the KU prices to just $2. below credit price, I guess you now get what you pay for instead of a good deal. Usually by the time I get the next in the series it's been long enough I've forgotten how bad they are... As a bad narrator can decimate a good book, having a good narrator could've made this book not as bad. It's a shame, there's some good ideas/character types in the book (the new alien introduced in this book is definitely different, kind of cute). I'd think this was a juvenile series if it weren't for the swearing and the sporadic sex scene. This is not Jack Campbell, James Corey, Mike Shepard, David Weber or Ben Bova, that's for sure. It's not even Christopher Nuttall, Jay Allan or Vaughn Heppner. Just my opinion.

    "Another great book!"

    This series is great, there is not really much I can say as a negative... I really look forward to the next, especially with Mr Kafer as the narrator!

    "Earth have fallen, now it’s a hell hole"

    Great story, not for children. It’s brutal and well written, sometimes just to sad how earth is and humans are threaten. But the story is great and I recommend this book as all before this one. Can’t wait till I start reading the next book in this series.
