Publisher's Summary

The war is on the verge of being lost. 

The alien virus has begun its offensive, punching through the human defences and sending advance elements to threaten Earth itself. HMS Invincible and her crew, having barely returned from their last mission, are thrown into a desperate mission to strengthen the inner line of defences before the virus can smash them too and destroy the human race. The stakes have never been so high. Defeat means the end of everything. 

But when the virus continues its offensive, brushing through all opposition, Invincible must mount a desperate raid deep into enemy space to win time for the human race....

Or watch, helplessly, as humanity faces a fate worse than death....

Excellent Sci-Fi

Excellent-SciFi. Mr. Nuttal's talent only improves with practice. Only issue is with the relatively uninteresting personal lives of the pilots who we spend, in my opinion, far too much time with. Still, the over all story makes it worth it.

Stop shouting

l think it would have been a much better experience if the narrator was more subtle with his voice characterizations

Plot vs shooting

High percentage of combat., I prefer a little more backstory and a lot more thinking and problem solving not just slugging it out.

I liked the book, the Peformance was realy good,

Love the storyline

I enjoyed the storyline from the beginning. It’s one of those series where you want it to end so you know how it finishes; but you also want it to keep going because the storyline is so good.

the English accent was too guttural and difficult

the English accent was too guttural and difficult to understand at time sounds like the narrator was gargling with razor blades

Enjoyable, but not Nuttall's best

Chris Nuttall does simple, straightforward military SciFi set in a universe where the UK is run by aristocrats and is a significant military power comparable with the USA. His writing strategy is to give Earth an alien enemy with abilities and technology that represents a challenge to humanity's current level of development. Over a series of stories, these challenges are overcome, usually by the heroic actions of a number flawed characters. Doubters are proved wrong and humanity wins out in the end. There is always a shed load of introspection and internal monologue as the protagonists grapple with their demons, lots of right-wing politics and jingoism, and a tendency to pitch the services against the much mentioned "bean counters", who are as much a threat as the aliens. In the series, we have had alien fishmen, cows, foxes and in this sub-series a virus that has a hive-mind and subjugates the will of its host bodies.

Having said all that, his characters are fairly well rounded and generally evoke sympathy, the novels are well paced and gripping, and his storylines uncomplicated and enjoyable.

and the war continues

another nice story for this series, however the ending did surprise as they usually end the conflict by the end of the trilogy but didn't in this one. I look forward to the next book when it comes out.

Arc Royal XV Required

Enjoyed the Trilogy. Only complaint is that the story had no ending hence book XV or continuation trilogy is required.

Otherwise another fine space opera by Mr Nuttal.

Whispersync doesn't work

Still not bad for Space Opera, though you need to put aside all knowledge of physics and he's getting a bit tired of this theme and wandering off into political ramblings.
The main let-down with this audible title is that the whispersyc doesn't work - I had to download it separately in audible and try to use the old fashioned sync between it and Kindle.
