Publisher's Summary

The Cygnus Realm has found peace.

Now, spreading among the new worlds of the Unseen gates, Dash and his people are building new lives, free of war and destruction. Until one of the former Unseen planets shifts in orbit - a small thing, but worth looking into. Close to this erratic world, something incredible opens, revealing a connection to stars so distant that they have no name on the Cygnus charts.

The Black Gate pulses in and out of existence, and when a massive pair of alien warheads comes through and destroys an entire orbital facility, Dash is left with no choice but to pick up the mantle of Messenger and fight once more. He must go through the gate, find out who is responsible, and eliminate the threat at any cost.

But this is beyond anything he and his people have faced before...and it will take everything they have to stand against it.

Love this series!

Thank you for a great series! When I wrote my review of book 10, I thought it was the end of the series, I have never been more happy to be wrong LOL! Great characters, giant Mech’s, snarky AI’s and Jeffrey Kafer! What more could you ask for? Thank you for another great book! I can’t wait for the next book in the series!

Another Great Story In The Series

When I first started listening to The Messenger series, I had expected 10 books - a nice tidy end to the story. However, as I proceeded through the series I did see that additional books had been added to the series. As I completed Book 10 (the original end to the series?), I felt that there was a great deal more that could have been explained or written about in depth. But it was just the way it was. BUT, Book 10 provided the opportunity to expand the series - which the authors did - and I am not disappointed.

Book 11 is the next logical step in the series. Things happen, the Realm responds, there's a bunch of unexplained events, weapons, and so on - but it's a new story, though it provides for answers to questions we might have had at the end of Book 10. I like the new characters, I like the tie-in to the existing characters, the plot is good, the character development continues as usual - it's yet another good book in the series. If you enjoyed the first 10, you will definitely enjoy this one!!!
