Publisher's Summary

Will humanity survive?

Admiral Stokes' forces are scattered and beleaguered with no safe haven. The forces of the Woduur have decisively defeated the Lashmere Navy and invaded Lashmere itself. Humans are on the verge of defeat. Their only hope lies in the ancient ship held by an alien race that may want them all dead.

Terrible

It turns out that the only thing keeping the previous entries in this series interesting was learning about new species and technologies as they were introduced. Almost nothing new is introduced in book 3, and as a result the latest chapter is a boring slog.

The author's clumsy prose, passive voice, and poor storytelling combine with the narrator's lifeless performance to create an incredibly tedious audiobook. I couldn't get myself to care about anything that happened in this book, and had to force myself to pay attention through most chapters.

The titular battle at the end of the novel is so brief and dull that I can't understand why the author named the book after it.

Several antagonists from previous books are treated as protagonists in this entry. In particular, one character who was previously painted as racist, paranoid, petty, and completely unprofessional, suddenly gets vindicated and promoted to a major position in what can only be described as a childish fantasy.

Captivating story.

I can't wait for the next book. Love the characters and clever mix of intrigue and military action. Well done.

Very enjoyable series

So far I’ve been really enjoying this series! Narrator is great, series has good pacing with very little filler.
