Publisher's Summary

Having successfully repelled the Resistance incursion into the Sol system, Terran Fleet Command must now deal with the far-flung worlds of the Sajeth Collective, which sponsored the attack. Task forces are dispatched to Damara and Lesheera to begin the first human blockades of entire planets. With the only ships fast enough to quickly bring the fight to the enemy's doorstep, TFC must do so alone, leaving only minimal forces behind to safeguard the Earth.

At home, humanity finally makes its decision regarding membership in the Pelaran Alliance. At the same time, the Guardian makes a decision of its own, calling the entire purpose behind its 500-year mission into question.

On the far side of Sajeth Collective space, the newly formed Crowned Republic of Graca experiments with technology so revolutionary that it attracts the attention of a powerful new enemy. Responding to a call for help from Prince Rugali Naftur himself, the Leadership Council must decide if rescuing a few Wek scientists is worth the risk of yet another war, this time involving direct conflict with the Pelaran Alliance itself.

Piloting a single, largely untested ship, Captain Tom Prescott and crew are once again called upon for a special mission - a trip into the heart of an empire to complete an assignment that only the Guardian itself could have envisioned.

This is a WOW.

This author Tori L. Harris is something else and is every space sci-fi junkie's dream. The books in this series just leave you guessing and thinking they will be predictable moments and yet go to a direction you want but not on the path you would assume which is wonderful.

Jeffrey Kafer's performance is damn near perfect that you really forget that hes even there. This is a goal that all narrators should desire to really make you drift off into the fantasy of the author's book.

WOW, really wow!!

I often rate high

Because I carefully pick my books. I am a fan of military sci-fi books and while the genre is diverse it can also become repetitive... This series is a classic example of core scifi and good old fashioned story telling.

I look so forward to the next!

Great Military Sci-Fi, But More is to Come!

Books are expensive. Audiobooks are not any more expensive than regular books via Audible with a Membership - but still expensive and harder to borrow from a library.

That being said, this series has been a terrific military based Sci-Fi story. But the ending left on a cliffhanger. So did Star Wars and Harry Potter, so what is my problem? I like to listen to books. My eyes are bad due to a car accident so listening is what I do. This book came out and wow, it was a wonderful, fun ride. Just enough tech to be great Sci-Fi but a great belief in Humanity to keep Gene Roddenberry happy.

All the books in the series were worth the money I spent. Wonderfully made characters, superb battles, shipyards to fire the imagination. Not everything works -- a nice dose of reality. The narration fits the tone of the book perfectly. I recommend the series wholeheartedly!

I have only one complaint. It will be months, maybe a year or more before the next book is released. Will I not listen to another book between now and then? As was said in Meredith Wilson's Music Man, "Not on your fireless cooker!" So when the next installment comes along I will have several other books and their stories rolling around in my noggin. Often causing me to think hard or listen to the previous book again to gain my bearings.

It is an excellent series. But it is NOT Harry Potter or Star Wars where you will remember the story where it left off. Too many great Sci-Fi series do this and to me, it is starting to get frustrating.

This series is starting to get interesting...

This Space Opera series is both interesting and engaging.
There is a remote quality to the action whereby all the characters are just saying their lines but overall I am enjoying the series.

c'mon Mr Harris, we need the next book ASAP

Would you listen to TFS Fugitive again? Why?

Yes. It was highly entertaining

What does Jeffrey Kafer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

A sense of pace only someone reading with foreknowledge of the story can bring.

Any additional comments?

This series is both infuriating and brilliant. Infuriating because every time a book ends you think "oh no, surely not yet....". Cannot wait for the next instalment, I hope it comes very soon.
