The Eradication has finally begun, and there is little hope of victory. Mankind's fleets are devastated. Their Tigris allies have lost their homeworld, and only a few Primo survive. They need allies, but few are left to be had. Fizgig sets out to persuade the notoriously hostile Jaguara Pride to join the war. Dryker fights a running retreat, losing on every front while the Eye pushes slowly toward Earth.
Their only hope is Captain Nolan, leading his squad in a quest to find the legendary Birthplace. There, if ancient Primo myths are right, they will find the vessel known as the Forge. But they are not the only ones seeking it, and if the Void Wraith get there first then all hope is gone.

"One of the best new sci fi writers"
I really like the story line and the narrator playful voice. I am hope this is not the end but a begin of a greater story. Above all if you really liked the first book you will love this.
"Nice conclusion to the arch"
Story line closed but universe no where near done.
Good book well worth it and barrator was good to listen to. Recommend
"epic ending to a great series"
title says it all. i do not know how to explain that without spoiling the ending. definitely worth a read from start to finish.
"another great book..."
I love this series. written awesome. the characters are very in depth and fun to follow...
my favorite part is the summary at the beginning of each book!! Absolutely funny...
"A love or hate relationship"
This is my rating for the entire series: As an author, Chris Fox is overall good; He has good characters, good dialogue and knows story structure. If one is willing to overlook his mistakes, you do actually enjoy his books. On the other hand, you can tell that he's not a Science fiction or military writer and the holes in his plots are SOO BIG that one can become a little aggravated by what he misses (or deliberately decides to ignore). From a literary standpoint, I don't think I would read his other books, except for his "learn how to make money by writing books" which I think no one can deny he has a handle on (hell, I bought all four books in this series!) because he does have a lot to teach.
"The performance detracts"
WHISPERING IS NOT A VOICE!!!! I absolutely hate it when narrators choose to whisper or shout during their "acting" but to go as far as to assign a whisper as a voice to a character is just insane.
Please keep in mind that a lot of listeners are doing something while listening and in a lot of cases the environment is loud and even using a high end headsets it is tough to handle whispers (cannot hear) or shouting(I already have the volume dialed up!!).
So please take note Ryan and apply other methods to illustrate these situations, there are tons of examples on Audible.
Now for the story and my apologies to everyone for my rant:
It feels like focus shifts away from the main protagonists in the first two books towards other characters specifically on the cats.
The story flows decently enough and it feels like a lot is done tong in the cheek without it going over the line.
I do wish the ship got a name, who calls an AI just "ship"? Maybe some more of that tong in the cheek I was mentioning...
In the end it is all entertaining but not something that you would on the top of your reread stack anytime soon.
"Surprisingly Enjoyably Captivating"
Didn't like the stoty, presentation nor the present or at the beginning BUT was surprised at how I was drawn in and comfortable with the reader. Not the best but cetainly worthy of a trilogy rank.
"Fun but implausible story."
This is the authors first attempt at a scifi in space series, and I have to give him credit for his imagination. The bad guy is pretty badass as bad guys go, and there were two pieces of tech that were worth reading about (entanglement communications and induction shielding). The story as a whole was superficial, like a Michael Bay film, but just as entertaining as well.
The narrator on the other hand, was not my favorite, because his vocal inflections on non-dialog script were all off. His character voices were good enough, but the rest was uninspiring.
No spoilers, so I can't tell you what made this series worth reading, aside from saying that when you see the main bad guy for the first time you will laugh and agree that it was worth it just for the ludicrous factor. lol
"didn't like that shitty twist"
great derisive your sense of humor but that middle twist seemed forced. kind of disappointed In how it ended.
