Publisher's Summary

The Forge is coming back online, weapons hot and searching known space for signs of the Golden.

When Dash and Leira repair a powerful scanner, it finds something unusual in a distant system - the remains of an ancient battlefield. Custodian tells of a fight lost long ago, leaving drifting debris around the faraway star.

But the battlefield isn't forgotten. A human colony has taken hold nearby, and on their world, a single, massive ship has crashed.

And it is sending out a signal.

In a race against the enemy, Dash and his team will try to salvage the secrets of a Golden ship, warn the colony of the oncoming war, and brace for impact as more enemies streak across the stars to hunt down the one person who can stop them.

The Messenger.

Not a Space Story

The previous 2 books had space battles, aliens, a mech warrior ... this book was a basic dungeon run.

the epic continues!

I can't get enough of this story. The narrator continues to do a wonderful job bringing it to life, and the writing is just really fun. Loving the characters and plot. Keep them coming, please!

Disappointed

I really liked the first two books, but this one fell short, in my opinion!

Sadly it seemed to drag!

A Great Story Continues

Book 3 in The Messenger series! The stories get better each step of the way - and this third book is no exception! Dash and the gang head to a distant outpost to gather Dark Metal, which - surprise! - is actually a crashed Golden ship that is composed of the Dark Metal! What looks like a possible straight forward salvage operation soon becomes yet another tedious, potentially lethal, escapade! Not only do they have issues getting permission to go to the crash site, they encounter both expected and unexpected issues along the way. But, as usual, they do find their way out of the mess and learn quite a few things in the process - which is a win-win for everyone involved! They also pick up an ally in the form of the outpost, specifically with two of its citizens - one former military and the other a biologist. And they both prove to be useful and helpful!!

I really like the character development, the interaction of the characters, the story line, the plot, the narration - there really isn't much to not like. Well, sometimes in just sitting there listening to the book, I do think "why don't they do this???" And sometimes they do get to it, sometimes they take a different path, and much of the time the delay is maddening!!!! LOL But it's not my story to tell and I do truly enjoy the one being told!!

Get the books, start the series, you won't regret it!!

Star Trek Vger and Star Trek Borg's ...

off-spring. J.N. Chaney and Terry Maggert team-up to again create an interesting continuation in the series. While the Forge is coming more online with the additional cores, the team now discovers that they need to acquire, in addition to Unseen cores, the Golden's dark matter for sophisticated weapons and offensive crafts and in order to acquire it they must venture out to the distant part of the galaxy where one of the last epic battles occurred between the two master races. Of course there are new encounters with other entities along with death defying encounters with more Golden baddies. The book moves the story forward while also broadening the listeners understanding of the Golden's genesis history.

Jeffrey Kafer continues to provide a good performance but his style often comes off as declarative statements from every character which made me want to slap them for being so over-bearing. Still, I enjoyed this book and plan to continue the series.
