Publisher's Summary

It has been over a decade since Andrew Keane's Union regiment was mysteriously pulled away from the Civil War and marooned in time on a hostile alien planet. But now it appears as if everything the Lost Regiment has fought and died for has been in vain.

The unrelenting war against the hordes has taken its toll on the fatigued humans, and the Bantag horde's latest siege has broken the Republic's will to fight. Keane resigns his position in the Republic's government when a peace parley is declared. Gathering the remaining veterans of the 35th Maine to his side, he plans a campaign that will take the Lost Regiment into the heart of the Bantag Empire to annihilate their ability to wage war once and for all. The outcome of this suicide mission will decide the fate of the human race on a world far from Earth.

Was not disappointed, Great Addtion to the Series

Not every book in the series has been a solid addition, but this one stands out and brings to a close the story for the beloved characters. The end is both unexpected and thought provoking. I admire the strength of character Forstchen wrote into his characters and will miss them as book 9 moves on to focus on the children of the characters that this series has followed. Overall I highly recommend the series, though some of the books are not as good as others the series as whole was well written and well narrated.

A very good book and a damn good series

A very good book and a damn good series. I'll read these books again and again. I already miss the characters, having grown fond of so many of them through the authors amazing ability to bring them to life. I look forward to the next phase of the series that picks up years afterwards with "Down to the Sea".

Act I Finale

Book 8 was an excellent end to the 1st story. Book 9 is the start of a new story.
