Publisher's Summary

With the planet's fighting men and women deployed across the galaxy - battling in the noble cause of enslaved humanity - the insidious Xul have reached across space to devastate the unsuspecting Earth with asteroid fire. Without warning, a once-majestic world is reduced to near-rubble - and the very future of humankind is in dire jeopardy.

Interplanetary leaders are on the brink of abandoning Earth and its colonies to an overwhelming enemy. But Brigadier General Garroway of the Marine Interstellar Expeditionary Unit is unwilling to concede defeat - not as long as there's a single marine willing to give his or her life in defense of their embattled homeworld. The ultimate battle is about to be waged - with breathtaking new attack technology, an ancient code of courage, and the help of an ally race that once inhabited the Earth - in a war that will alter the universe forever....

    Story
    "Exposition abounds"

    The story is good and the characters fairly well flushed out. My only issue is the amount of exposition. The worst is when the same bits of exposition are used repeatedly in the same book. I understand when it's used from book to book in order to make each book stand alone but the amount and pacing of the exposition in this book was the worst of the three. Sometimes it would happen right in the middle of an action sequence. If you don't mind occasionally being pulled out of the story for a long bit of physics/history/military history etc then you'll probably like the book.

    "Good book"

    Good science fiction. Has enough scientific parts to get you thinking. A very enjoyable "read."

    Story
    "I forgot Douglas's style"

    I always enjoy the futuristic "space marine" type stories. I love gadgets, and they always seem to have the coolest gadgets around. These are stories I enjoy just to relax. Nothing too deep.

    I have read or listened to a number of books by Ian Douglas, and I had forgotten how he frequently goes into long discussions about things that do not seem to be necessary to the story. They are obviously interesting to Mr. Douglas as he provides a lot of information, but in a written book, you can simply skip large sections without losing the story or important content. This is harder with an audio book.

    I like this story, but I only gave it a 3 because probably 10% could have been left out. The performance was OK, but not great.
