Publisher's Summary

The Hegemony strikes again....

The Confederation and its allies have won their first victory, retaking their capital from the forces of the Hegemony. But the enemy is not beaten, far from it, and they are back, with an unstoppable weapon, a vast superbattleship, a deadly hybrid of imperial and Hegemony technology, called the Colossus

The great ship is enormously powerful, nearly unstoppable, and in its armored depths it hides a secret, another Hegemony weapon, one that will change the dynamic of the entire war. One that will challenge Admiral Barron, and his officers and spacers, to the greatest test they have ever faced. 

The battle for the Rim has reached its climactic stage, but even as the Hegemony moves forward to claim victory, an old enemy, a terror from the distant past, is about to return…and change everything. 

Don’t miss the latest action-packed volume in Jay Allan’s Blood on the Stars series.

great series, read them all since book 1

Stil love the series, though k have to say this is the first time I felt that a bit of shortening of some passages would have been warranted, sometimes the descriptions of internal thought processes or emotions were a bit longwinded. I might just think that bcz i know all the books and know the character Soni don't need as much backstory so take that with a grain of salt or two. will still buy the next book, no way to stop me from doing that.

blah blah blah blah blah

actual plot of this series is good. I am definitely enjoying the story however..... half of every chapter is just going over character feelings. it gets annoying after awhile. Stockton is always off the the bloodiest massacre needing endless introspection along the way etc etc with every damn character. stick to the damn story.

Worst SyFy Ever

This is one of the most boring and lamest books I have ever read. Really bad writing, narrator is horrible. In 10 hours of listening to I never made a bookmark. That is a very bad sign. Means nothing of interest ever happened or was remarkable. I cannot understand how anyone can enjoy this book. It was garbage to me and I could not finish it.

These keep getting better!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. at the beginning of the series i liked them, but was slightly unsure of spending $140 to listen to all these. They have not disappointed me yet.

Too many loose ends.

There are too many sub-stories/side stories that are not followed up on and leave the listener with questions about what had happened. Overall it was a good read.

Eargasm!

Probably the best book of the series. Hours of pure suspense and action. Some of the previous books had some less entertaining sections, but this one is 100% awesome! More please!

They Will Not Yield

The Confeds have taken back Megara, driving out the Hegemony, who had to abandon 3M of their ground troops on the planet. Just when you thought it was all over, Project Zed appears. A battleship the size (60 kilometers long) and strength never before seen. And, inside this Colossus, the Red Storm awaits Jake Stockton and his wings. However, all is not lost, it never is. You just know that if `Fritzi is sent on a suicide mission the furthest thing from her mind is suicide!
