The starship New Horizon is Earth's first attempt at an FTL capable spaceship. But others don't want the mission to succeed. The mission goes suddenly and horribly wrong with the possibility of inadvertently leading the Hocklyns to Earth decades in advance of their estimated arrival time. Can the cadets on the New Horizon stop the deadly plot before it's too late?
The Federation survivors on Ceres have built a new warship. It's the most powerful ship they have ever built. Its mission is simple. Return to the old Federation worlds, search for survivors, and find out how far the Hocklyn Slave Empire has spread. The whole key to their mission is secrecy, but the disastrous events on the New Horizon may jeopardize everything.

"Enjoyed the the take this took in this verse."
Well after reading the second book that was very face paced (which i personally prefer) this book goes back in time as we just start to get out into the universe. i enjoyed it, it was a bit slow for me, but i stuck with it and I'm now on to the next book in the series.
"Like the series but, a little like a tooth ache."
No. The story was good but, it was not exceptional.
Yes. My issue is not with the author but, the reader. The pernouncation of some words are grating, they take me out of the story. For example, the star Tau Ceti should be pernounced with a soft "C", not a hard "CC" as the reader does in the audible rendition. It is kind of like touching a sore tooth with your toung. I am surprised that Audible let this foopa slip bye... Not up to their usual high standard. I hope the other books in this series don't have this kind of short coming.
See note above. I hope he does better.
No, too long for 1 sitting.
