Publisher's Summary

In the wake of the Solar Union’s stunning victory over the Tokomak - the masters of the galactic community - humanity has been invited to send a diplomatic mission to the Kingdom of Harmonious Order, one of the oldest and most significant races in known space. It is an opportunity that cannot be missed, a chance to forge ties with a powerful ally. And so a lone starship is dispatched to the galactic core to open discussions....

But when that starship runs into a deadly trap, she and her crew must battle their way home before they are merely the first casualties in a renewed war.

Great Book. But the narrator was lacking.

Why switch narrators in the middle of a series?!? The original narrator was awesome, the new one sounds monotone. Still was a good listen, but I miss the old narrator. I home audible releases the next book soon!

Bad choice of narrator

Why switch narrator’s in the middle of a series. For audio listeners that is equivalent to changing an author. Bad choice.

One more amazing escape, please.

One more amazing escape, please.

This is all that was needed to send me screaming from the room.

This writer is better than this. To resort to such cheap style to fill the needed pages
was beneath him. If this continues, he will doom his books to obscurity.

The narrator makes me want to fall asleep.

A more monotone narration will be wery hard to find. I could not stand to listen to more than 2 chapters.

Robotic and so much whining

The narrator was so robotic and would have spoiled any half decent story, and that what this story is, half decent. The captain and the ambassador were poorly written characters. I go so sick of the ambassador and her whining and self doubt and teleporter fear that I was kind of rooting to have her killed off. The captain wasn't much better, for half the story he bumbled about and didn't shine until it was time to fight. The story was disjointed at best, things were mentioned and made to sound important, but nothing came of it, making me wonder if it was just fluff added to make the book longer.
I'll listen to the sample of the next book in the series, if it sounds like this one I guess I'll call it quits and find something else to listen to.
Yup, narrator is Jeffery Kafer and the sample has made me decide to call it quits.

Unclear and wandering

I have listened to most of Christopher Nuttall’s books but this series of books has started to Wander without clarity. It just feels like there’s lots of unnecessary details and that transitions within the storyline are awkward and leave the listener a bit confused.

ONI is pronounced O.N.I.!!!

I enjoyed the book and Jeffery Kafer does a good job on the narration but it took me a few minutes to understand that when he was saying "oni" he was talking about the Office of Naval Intelligence! Mispronounced military terms and acronyms really take me out of the moment.

ST Voyager? No, but real close.


I'd put this novel in third place, below
(1) "Lost Fleet" series by Jack Campbell and
(2) ST Voyager tv series, (but I'm a trekker)
but this was a good read/listen, and I'm thoroughly enjoying most of the series.

Lost Fleet style book with a lot of repetition

There was a lot of restating the same facts in the book. Playback speed was at 1.5x some of the.

Utterly Gripping

It’s no spoiler to say that there will be battles in this book, and when there are, they do not disappoint.
I found myself gripped by the imagery.
The best yet!

Please stop political re-education

For someone who clearly espouses self reliance, the constant attempts at forcing his the political agenda threatens to discredit it.

REALLY BADLY READ

the story is really badly read. The tone make it very dull, further more this particular volume is written in a dull way.

A note to the author please stop using the word "sardonically" every time!!!!
