When an enormous and potent alien ship appears in the colony system of Gliese 370, EarthFleet's Marines must investigate. What they find within will change the course of humanity's future yet again, as they face Desolator. The risks are high and so is the price in blood - and the payoff: new technology far ahead of their own, which may provide the key to fight the alien Meme Empire.

Artie Sievers should only read children's books! He makes this war book weak with his unexciting voice and ridiculous character accents. Bring back Mark Boyett!!!!! please!!!!
story was good but the narrator change made it confusing to follow trying to re-establish voices for characters.
"I just cant do it anymore Artie..."
It will be the last Vandyke/Sievers book I ever listen to. YEAH!!!
NO! The shark has been jumped with a dead horse.
Never. His three voices he uses have finally worn through my last nerve.
End this series and never pick it back up again.
Got hooked on the plague wars with the prequel and loved it (when DJ gets the plague). The switch to Sievers really drags the entire series down. Bad voice acting, three voices, and takes characters with depth and flattens them out in to monolithic cutouts. I forced my way through the PW books as I like the story, through Artie's voice acting, and Jill's drop into being a mom, but this series is just beating a dead horse. You could say the shark has officially been jumped.
"The series gets better as it continues."
Artie is OK. Just OK. Why on earth they switched from Mark Boyett is beyond me. Mark is one of the best narrators out there. Mark Boyett, Sean Runnette, Michael Kramer, Luke Daniels, Dick Hill and Kate Reading are all in a league of their own. To give up Mark for Artie is just baffling.
I like the addition of new races.
