Publisher's Summary

Earth defeated the Toth invasion. Now humanity takes the fight to the aliens.

The supreme Toth overlord, Mentiq, rules his species with an iron fist from his fortress on the planet Nibiru. The first overlord surrounds himself with decadent treasures and the galaxy's deadliest warriors to protect his dominion from treachery and attack.

Armed with stolen Toth technology, the Breitenfeld travels to the world with a single mission: assassinate Mentiq and end the Toth threat to Earth.

What secrets await Lieutenant Hale and the Breitenfeld in The Gardens of Nibiru?

Still entertaining after all these books

I've found very few authors who can keep a series going past book 3 (or 4 at the most) and still keep the story compelling, interesting and creative. Richard Fox is one of those rare birds and book 5 is more proof of that. Part of it has to do with the unique cast of characters he has created, from naive to serious to snarky to untrustworthy to heroic to despicable but all compelling and woven in such a way that they each play a worthy part of the story. He also stages these peoples in ways that their scenes are often only loosely grouped to the others so that it's like a bunch of disconnected mini-story arcs occurring during the telling of the book.

I was saddened when in book 4 one of my favorite characters, Sergeant Torni gave up her life in a selfless act to save her squad but am pleased that she re-surfaces again in book 5 ... sort of.

Excellent writing and Luke Daniels is an excellent narrator.

You will continue to live it.

Mr. Fox keeps you entertained and mesmerized with each chapter. The ending well let's just say you'll love it and definitely be wanting to get the next book as soon as you can. The one thing that Mr. Fox does is keep you focused on each characters story within the main story so you can fully understand the stories main points. You can also close your eyes and see each picture or scene as clear as a bell. You will love this book and be waiting to get the next!

As hoped and expected, this series gets better...

Would you consider the audio edition of The Gardens of Nibiru to be better than the print version?

I have trouble reading text - I can do it, but - audio is always better for me.

What did you like best about this story?

Spaceships, aliens, a struggle for humanity's survival - undertones on the question of what makes a person a person? - What's not to like? The story is intriguing for me, it h as many elements that are similar to other SciFi novels with space travel and aliens, its another book with all of humanity's ability to exist on the line, but it is also imaginative and unique. - The overall story does some things that I didn't expect, nor could have imagined. It literally does everything for me a good SciFi book with space ships and aliens should do.

Which scene was your favorite?

You're not asking me to spoil anything now are you?! There's a scene with a Trojan Horse, does it work, does it not? I think its my favorite.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I don't think actual tears came out of my eyes, but there were a couple of scenes where I felt like I was crying or about to cry.

Any additional comments?

I've seen the comments, not everyone finds this series enjoyable. I'm not going to tell you its amazing, but it is a 4 out of 5 in my book. I'm enjoying it, I'm not finding it boring, its a solid book. - I would read it again, so 4 out of 5.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Gardens of Nibiru to be better than the print version?

I like the story but I have a long commute and I just finished the one I hope the next books comes to audible soon if not I have to stay up late at night reading off my Ipad and I need the sleep

What other book might you compare The Gardens of Nibiru to and why?

the black fleet series

What does Luke Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I like his use of voice entombment to give the character's

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

the hard decisions being made by the high command and the feeling that the low officers only get part of the picture and have a hard time dealing with it. Being a Veteran in combat I can relate to this

Any additional comments?

I wish that the next books comes in soon for audible I enjoy the reader and story line <br/>

Ever more bizarre

It continues to get ever more far out and unbelievable. Star Trek on steroids but enjoyable. Excellent narration, good characters, good development.

good story line, shame it's so short

it's really disappointing that this book includes over half an hour of next book. if I buy 5 hours, I expect to get five 5.

audible should remove this extra time from the book description

I don't give many 5 stars but both the story and narration are great it's easy to get lost in this series and leaves me longing for the next book.
