    Dev Cameron joined the military to fly a starship but is rated unsuitable and grudgingly accepts an assignment with the ground forces, piloting a massive walking tank (a warstrider). But Cameron may yet get a chance at glory when he makes a discovery about the alien foes that could change the course of the war.

    This one is tough to listen to.

    I've enjoyed Ian Douglas' work in the past and that's why I tried this one in spite of poor reviews. While I might try another book by Ian, I won't tr..Show More »

    The universal order is unraveling. The enslaved cry out for freedom. The apocalypse is now. Devis Cameron, hero of the Xenophobe War and the Empire's reluctant champion, has been posted to the 4th Terran Rangers - a gaijin Warstrider unit on New America - to eliminate a newly discovered underground colony of Xenos and to deal harshly with civil unrest spawned by Imperial repression. The situation is rapidly degenerating into total anarchy. And the nuclear option may be the only alternative.

    The books deserved better

    I'll be blunt: the performance was horrible. I'm not familiar with the narrator's other work but I suspect the problem here is the direction anyway. ..Show More »

    Once he was the gaijin champion of a cruel and oppressive empire. Now Dev Cameron is a military commander for the rebellious newborn Confederation and at tentative peace with the galaxy's all-powerful rulers. But treachery has shattered the uneasy truce, as the imperial lords prepare to rain destruction down upon the outpost of New America, delivering the final death blow to the still young revolution.

    I would give this audio book (10 stars )if I could

    Over 20 years have passed since the events of Warstrider: Symbionts. Contact with the DalRiss and Naga, and their technology, has radically altered human society - as has the constant struggle between the Hegemony and the rebel Confederation for control over the dozens of human-inhabited planets. But the Hegemony has a new technology that could suppress any resistance to Earth's rule.

    A great addition to wonderful series

    There's really good hardcore science fiction with good attention to the science,

    The Web, a vast machine intelligence of unbelievable power, is steadily consuming the galaxy, indifferent to any species that stands in its way. Fighting the Web brings together an alliance between disparate societies and alien civilizations that must stand against it in battle. And overcoming the Web means learning where it came from, what goals drive its single-minded advance, and, ultimately, what the future holds for intelligent life in the universe.

    Great continuation of the story, with a caveat

    Okay, I really like this story and how it has developed in the last few books. The main caveat that I have with this one is that the author spends a ..Show More »
