Publisher's Summary

The gloves have finally come off.

The Tokomak, the unquestioned masters of the galaxy, have dispatched a massive fleet to crush the Solar Union - and the fledgling Galactic Alliance - before the human race and its alien allies can tear the galactic order asunder. Hundreds of thousands of starships under the command of an alien tactical genius, bent on exterminating the entire human race...the darkest hour is truly at hand.

Admiral Hoshiko Stuart has a plan. The Solar Union will dispatch a fleet of its own, with the objective of smashing the alien fleet before it reaches Sol.

But, as human technology clashes with alien treachery, experience, and sheer numbers, it becomes clear that there can be only one victor...and whoever loses will lose everything.

Narration is a perpetual 1000 yd stare of dramatic

Love the storyline but physically cringe at the narration. Kafir should consider starting an emo folk band or narrating Edgar Alan Poe books.

Oh, we’ll smash them, oh they smashed us

I have low standards for entertaining reading, be easy to hear, and move along and a decent review. I like the series, narrator and characters, had to force my way through this screen play, oh not even that since the descriptions were so parse you couldn’t even set camera angles, and the dialog was redundant reports and acknowledgements. All other was internal thoughts. So many characters repeated tired cliches, just not good enough an effort. First half of the book was a continual rehash of the strategic situation.

Great book!!!

I liked the book, the Peformance was realy good,
The any problem is the wait time between books, a year between books is too long. I would like to see more book alot fast.

“... and yet...”

Jeffrey’s overused and dramatization of “ and yet.....” space space space was really annoying throughout all of the books he narrated

It's the best I n the series so far.

the last one was the best in the series. But the tale the stotler went with bothered me. With the ultra xenophobic uktra conservative culture of the world today, these type of books that tend to glorify that ideology are just acting fuel to the flames.

Monotone

Unfortunately, Mr. Kafer failed to bring out or add depth to the characters and story. What I’ll remember is listening to 10 hours of monotone where every character sounds the same.

LONG RANG WAR,LONG RANGE LET DOWN

This book started out great but by the last book the author was tired and the story was even more tired. I wish he never would have even wasted his time or effort on this last book,what a waist of time and money.

Amazing ambush scenes

I rate this series highly because it’s accurate, follows its own rules and Christopher has created some really great battles that keep you on the edge of your seat.
When Jeffrey reads these books, I feel I’m transported to a different world.
I really really really hope you continue this series as the universe you have created is straight out awesome.
