An even greater threat on its way...

If you have enjoyed the story so far you will not be disappointed. Captain Scott and his crew continue their fight against the odds, working towards the inevitable confrontation against the might of the Jung Empire.
"Brown is getting better with each book"
In the last book, the Arora had the Jung battleship defeated and the Ghatazhak troops had found and rescued his father. Nathan had killed his brother in a stand-off. The Jung were attempting to destroy all the major cities on Earth.
The Jung battle fleet is almost to Earth. The Aurora and Celestia are racing to repair severe battle damage and get the Celesta’s jump drive operational. The messenger with the Data Storage containers has reached Tug (Prince Casimin) and he has set about to obtain ships and crew to set a fleet to help the Arora.
The Ghatazhak troops are fighting insurgent skirmishes on Earth while the spaceships are trying to fix the ships, manufacture parts and find basic raw or salvaged materials for the replicators. The suspense builds as the Jung Fleet keeps getting closer and a massive battle platform is missing. Is it on the way to Earth? Then the battle begins: the Aurora and Celestia against two Jung battleships and their protecting ships and a battle platform coming.
Brown keeps improving with each book. The characters continuing to mature and develop with each book. The story continues to becoming more complicated as there are more people and side stories evolving. We are left with a cliff hanger as the Jung fleet arrives and the battle begins. I am so glad I discovered this series; it is turning out to be one of the better military sci-fi series.
Jeffrey Kafer does an excellent job narrating the story. Kafer has narrated all the books in the series so far. I think it is critical to have the same narrator for an entire series.
"Brown is maturing in his writing..best yet"
This is Brown's best yet. His characterizations are becoming well-developed with real emotions and real problems. Nathan Scott has matured into someone far wiser than his years, which one would expect considering his past 8 months. The plot continues to interest and occasionally surprise. Can't wait for the next installment.
"Another great addition to the series.."
I have every book in the series and would place it in the category as these space series -- The Lost Fleet by Jack Campbell, Kris Longknife by Mike Sheperd, and Cassandra Kresnov by Joel Shepperd.
"Another Excellent book in the series"
Well if your sucked into the series you have no choice but to recommend them.
No each book I read is different
None really, but the Author better keep JK he is an excellent voice actor. An audio book can succeed or fail on the voice actor. You change voice actor in this series of books would kill them. Pay whatever price he asks for. And no he is not my brother or cousin.
Aurora against all odds.
I wish he would write a longer book, Ben Bova seems give more bank for the buck. Plus I would think since this is a series the time between books would be shorter your just continuing with the story line. I would suggest you ask the readers to submit story line ideas. Might help in moving the story along faster. No they don't get paid and No they don't get credit. They get to see their idea on the written page and that should be enough
While great on its own, Books 10 and 11 go very well together. Be prepared to download both for a great listen and a more complete story.
A lot of rinse and repeat phrases. Good continuation. Look forward to next book. Cheers!
"a great book"
a great boolk well written. i could not stop listening. i recommend this series.
I love Josh & Loki and I thought for sure they were all screwed! on to the next book. I just can't get enough
"Best series I have yet to read"
The geometry of the battles (both space and atmosphere) might be hard to follow for the novice, but being a F-16 fighter pilot I find it fascinating how the author follows good sound tactical practices
Easy to follow but I spent much time rewinding to capture complex intertwined plots
Josh - he has the Right stuff. A natural cocksure but not arrogant pilot
The Ark of Knowledge
"I have never been this annoyed by a narrator."
Body movements, stage ques are whispered between voices. I haven't paid attention to how any other narrated book was written or noticed if or how a book is narrated... stage questions and body language and who the speakers are. BUT WHISPERING IS NOT HOW YOU NARRATE!
#####Kafer is on my never again list.#####
