The first book in the epic saga of humankind's war of transcendence
There is a milestone in the evolution of every sentient race, a Tech Singularity Event, when the species achieves transcendence through its technological advances. Now the creatures known as humans are near this momentous turning point.
But an armed threat is approaching from deepest space, determined to prevent humankind from crossing over that boundary - by total annihilation if necessary. To the Sh'daar, the driving technologies of transcendent change are anathema and must be obliterated from the universe - along with those who would employ them. As their great warships destroy everything in their path en route to the Sol system, the human Confederation government falls into dangerous disarray.There is but one hope, and it rests with a rogue Navy Admiral, commander of the kilometer-long star carrier America, as he leads his courageous fighters deep into enemy space towards humankind's greatest conflict - and quite possibly its last.

"Douglas knows his SF." (Publishers Weekly)
Yes and the storey line was OK but once I got into it.
After the battle with the Sh'daar and lLieutenant Grays great discovery by shooting his
Anti- ship Missile Sand Caster rockets at the speed of light at the oncoming fleet.
Nick Sullivan makes this storey come to life, I do not think anyone else could have pulled it off, I look for books that Nick is narrating because he only does good stories and I have listed to other books by other Authors and it puts me off them when the narration is poor!!
Time is Running Out for Man
Please keep the Storyline going, don't take to long before getting the follow on books into audible.
Thorough insight into what our High Tech future might look like and how it affect human interaction and society.
all characters play their part
great narration by Nick Sullivan, again no favourites
I have giggled often when listening to exchanges between the military personell
Yes. Initially this was somewhat of a 'slow burn' but as the plot unfolded I found myself becoming more engaged with the story and the characters. I now plan to purchase the full series.
None - as yet.
The characters need more time to develop.
Not the best performance but far from the worst I have heard.
A good solid performance.
Not ever - but I would make the same comment to all audio books.
I'm just returning to Audible to purchase the next four books. I think that says it all!
