Publisher's Summary

Only a few short months after humanity's first interstellar flights, the first shots have been fired in what will eventually become known as the Alliance Wars.

Terran Fleet Command teeters on the edge of chaos in the aftermath of Chairwoman Crull's removal from power, while in space, Earth's defense falls squarely on the shoulders of Admiral Kevin Patterson. With only a small number of ships capable of bringing the fight to the enemy, he makes the bold decision to divide his forces, meeting the Resistance task force head-on at two separate locations.

Captain Tom Prescott and crew aboard the destroyer Theseus meet with initial success on the battlefield, only to be faced with the arrival of a warship completely out of her class - armed with weapons for which she is not prepared.

As the Resistance task force makes its final approach to Earth, a new ally warns of the horrors that will be visited on our homeworld if the coming attack succeeds. In the meantime, the enigmatic Guardian watches and waits, noncommittal as to its role as a protector or a mere observer.

Yet hope remains - as a friend of humanity finally comes to grips with his destiny.

So far the author has demonstrated an uncanning ability to entice the reader. Hopefully the story doesn't end here.

As always Mr. Kafer is awesome and the story is engrossing

Flat, Thin, and lacks a dynamic heart

Ok, I am almost to the end of the third book now and I likely will not continue with the next one.

Why you ask?

This series could easily be condensed into maybe two books? There is so much “Military” filler and very little story for the money.

The reader although not as bad as many, has a very narrow dynamic character range. He also, (this is also the producer’s fault), miss-pronounces many words and sometimes with catastrophic results.

Example: I live in Japan so I know – the name is pronounced “Oh he row” (roll the r into a slight “l” as you say it but NOT “Oh hear oh” – Please! Do a bit of research before you decide on how to say words - especially when they are foreign words.

Example: It’s pronounced “Par-leigh” not “Parlee”

And the name of the main ship in the series is “Thesis” – means approximately “from / of god” but when you slip and say it “Fecius” – well that just a “s**t*” mistake. Slow down and edit producers!

Unfortunately I must agree with other reviewers that the storyline is very shallow. The exploration of social space issues is thin and not well developed – or not deep enough that I want to care enough? And as others have said, this story moves SO SLOW!

The reader, again not totally bad, but along with the weak storyline filled with all this military conversation at the cost of other more compelling potiential, gives the work what I would say is minimal on “heart”. I’m not compelled to care about the characters very much and I am tired with all the over explained (over and over again) military tech.

Lastly, I don’t review “all” the books I read but this series, I feel I have an obligation to warn people about what they are getting into. Some like this kind of thing, but this type of writing and presentation is not a compelling listen for me.

Exciting, fast paced, great book

Easy to read and well thought out. It is tribute to humanity....which it should be.

Another great sequel in the Terran Fleet Command s

For those who like "hard", technical or military science fiction this will be an enjoyable addition to their library. The only problem I have is the constant use of exponentials in describing distances. The author should have used something simpler, like "light-seconds" for describing the distances in space and giving a quick introduction of the idea at the beginning of each book. Other than that, I think this series and this book stands up there with the Honor Harrington and Ky Vatta, "Trading in Danger" series.

instalments need to come faster. the story is brilliant but the upload of new content is incredibly slow.

An enjoyable and interesting sci-fi

I'll start by saying that I'll do a full series review on the next book. This review is simply to voice a minor issue that vexed me every time I heard it in the story.
The Australian character! It took me several times hearing the narrators attempt at an apparently very northern Queensland accent to realise that it was meant to be Australian at all.
I honestly didn't pay a whole lot of attention that that particular character's backstory, as audiobooks are my workplace background noise to shorten the work hours. But I do believe there was some mention of the character, in particular, coming from Sydney? Or at the very least, I don't think they were from Northern QLD. The average Australian speaks with a much more neutral accent than this atrociously read one.
This isn't a criticism of the story and narration as a whole, it was generally well done and enjoyable, but being an Australian it grated on my nerves every time I heard that dialogue.
