The final battle begins.

The Xaros Masters destroyed Bastion, the Alliance against the alien invaders has failed. Earth stands against the full force of the enemy's unending drone fleets.

With their backs against the wall, Captain Valdar and the Breitenfeld must lead a last ditch mission to end the war against the Xaros.

    "Outstanding"

    I thoroughly enjoyed the last installment in this saga! I gave it 5 stars across the board, but wish I could give the narrator's performance more than a mere 5 stars. Excellent acting.

    "Satisfying end to great series"
    What did you love best about The Xaros Reckoning?

    There have been few times when I have read a book series beginning to end and enjoyed the entire experience. Usually the series would start our great only to loose its way and chase so many plot threads that by the end of the book you don't even know what the point of the story was. This series seemed to stay on point the entire time and at the end gave me and extremely satisfying story conclusion while at the same time nicely closing all the plot threads.
    Great job and I will definitely recommend this series and author to my friends.

    "have the crater make more books of of this series"

    this Series has been one of the best series on Audible yet I think that you should definitely ask the author if you would create more even if it was just you talk more about the characters

    As much as I wish the story would keep going, it was done very well and the ending was too perfect to change.

    "A satisfying end"

    The action picks up quickly and I don't know how Luke Daniels can keep track of all the different voices! All the loose ends seem accounted for- what a fun addictive series this was!

    "Fantastic series."
    Where does The Xaros Reckoning rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Up there with the best.


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

    Luke is a fantastic narrator, and I now look out for books he has performed.


    Any additional comments?

    An excellent series, fantastic author and narrator. I would highly recommend all the books.

    "Good Ending"

    It ends the series how you expect there are no surprises, but that don't mean it was bad, it's always hard to say good bye to the characters you have got to know over 9 books, but the author does leave a lot in the last chapter to do spinoffs...

    Most enjoyable sci-fi series I have ever listened too! Believable characters that you feel you know. As an ex serviceman I could relate to every member of the troop. This would make an excellent Tv series or films. Thank you Richard Fox.

    I've loved this set of books from start to finish. I've enjoyed getting to know the characters and I'm absolutely gutted to be finished. it's not a perfect book, it was just right for me though. Suspend disbelief and just enjoy it.
