Publisher's summary

The epic conclusion to Bob Mauldin's best-selling Stellar Heritage series.

With the human-Shiravan treaty on the line, Kitty Hawke must violently end a mutiny aboard one of her ships. Afterwards, she leaves Shiravi, bound for Earth after being away for two years. Marsha Kane replaces Kitty as the head of the human fleet in Shiravan space, but she has her own plans on how to end the war with the Garmon, formerly called the Korvil.

Meanwhile, the humans and Shiravan take the fight to the Garmon, destroying their ships and decimating their worlds, and it seems as if the war is nearing its end. But things take a turn for the worse when the Garmon upgrade their technology and stage a massive attack on Shiravi, destroying the matriarch's home and taking many lives.

Amidst all the chaos, the Terran Alliance solidifies its foothold in space and then looks to the next step - the colonization of other worlds. Kitty and Simon's dream of exploring the unknown seems more distant now than ever as they struggle to survive. But they know how the old saying goes - when one door closes...another opens.

Good Way to End

Part of me is sad to make it to the end of this book knowing the fate of the Author and another part is simultaneously upset at the author for not finishing the plot holes and seemingly rushing this to its conclusion. I have a feeling if Mauldin was still around we might have the opportunity to get more of this story. I do think the series overall is very well done and paced decently but this book seems to rush through time and leaves me thinking about what happened to alot of characters and why some plot points weren't followed more.

the ending gives you closure

Becoming attached to book characters can make saying goodbye challenging; in this case, it's like saying "see you later" to your best friend.
The author passed away in 2019 shortly after completing this series. Godspeed.

Great book series

Bob did a great job writing this series I want more. And as always mark brought the books to life for me. Make more in this series I want to know what they find exploring.

A truly great 4 book series

From the first book starting on a night in the United States to the last book on a distant planet this series takes you on a adventurous trip that makes hard to not let the book rest.

Great series!

The characters were great. The story went by so fast. I wish there was a fourth book, about new races found, and how Simon and Kitty are living the dream that we all have. The narrator is the absolute best. Mark Boyett is my favorite.
