"Evil hides best in the shadows, preferring to work in the darkness. It withers and dies when exposed to the bright light of truth for all to see." (Vice Admiral Jack Steele)
With the Freedom gone forever, Jack Steele is awarded a new ship and a new position. A newly minted Vice Admiral, Jack Steele replaces the functionally insane Admiral Pottsdorn as the commander of Task Force Lancer.
Leaving behind a stabilized and closely monitored Veloria Prime bound for the Terran system, their new mission is to invite Earth into the United Federation of Worlds. And the UFW Directorate will accept nothing less than success. But trouble brews on Earth, and the deep space between Velora Prime and the Terran System is anything but friendly.
An epic science fiction adventure that reaches from the surface of our familiar planet and the safety of terra firma, to the dark, vast expanse of deep space and distant empires.

"Third book is a nice book end to the trilogy"
I have enjoyed the characters and narration in Wings of Steele series. It is a nice throwback to the sci-fi of the 70's and the focus on characters and humor. The narration is top notch and it made the time fly by.
"Another Amazing Book!"
Great story! I absolutely loved it! Aliens, Bermuda Triangle, and government conspiracies!!! Wow! This series was awesome! My only complaint is that I wish there was more. I didn't want it to end! lol It was that damn good! I'm hoping to see more from this author! Great performance by Kevin Clay as well!
"An all too believable story!"
The parallels to current events and actions provide a very believable story. The portrayal of governmental agencies and corporations and the power they project is scary and believable.
The range of characters and the descriptive personalities provide several choices, but the mysterious Vorlock was perhaps the most intriguing.
Kevin is an excellent narrator and makes for enjoyable listening.
Sadly, I view the scenario presented as all too believable.
I believe that the universe is vast enough to actually make this all very plausible
Hard to say... BUT you DO have to ignore all the Libertarian Rightwing clap trap in some parts of the book. it's Paranoia Alex Jones special tinfoil hat worthy in some places...
But the general feel and flow of the story is good... and keeps things interesting if you can ignore it.
No not really. Why? Because it's only decent, not worth special mention. IF you have a friend that is in to SciFi and conspiracy theories then go for it recommend away.
The gunfights, in both fighters and out.
As I said before it's a good time burner. Just treat some of the book like it's your crazy Republican/Libertarian uncle. at Thanksgiving just roll your eyes and move on.
mixed real life happenings with sci fi ,makes you want to look up every time you see a trail in the skye of a night
the whole book
I read while driving longhaul across across the country
"Fun & action packed"
This third installment of this series was fun and full of action. The story covers a lot of ground in a short amount of time. Unlike most space based sci-fi the written doesn't spend an exorbitant amount of time discussing how advanced technology works. That's both a positive and a negative.
"Believable (future-tech) with current references"
Earthlings make good in Space type of story without being derivative; a fun and engaging read/listen! I hope most sincerely that Jeff Burger continues to express his literary talents with further tellings of the exploits of Jack Steel.
"Right Wing Flause Flag Propaganda!"
What started out as a lame , poorly written Sifi series with a storyline any horny low IQ 14 year old farm boy might like turned Glenn Beck nuts in this last book. This 3rd installment of "Wings" went off the rails and into right-wing paranoid propaganda that just turned me off, especially with all the religious right and wingnut right BS going on in the presidential campaigns. just about every paranoid high school graduate right wing racist paranoid theory is expressed in this last book that is just disgusting. Government takeover of citizens turning them into slaves, power-hungry crazy government officials suppressing the general population so they can rule the world & best of all the author tries to tied into the Knights Templar. What a joke
"CAN Clif hanger?"
Overall good story but like a lot of science fiction written today, we are advanced in space transportation but lacking in the other disciplines? The book overall, is nothing more than a long political statement. Don't get me wrong, as it's well told. If you don't mind your politics and everything that's wrong in the world blamed on people other than ourselves, this is worth a credit.
This is a space opera to end all space operas.... Not since The Lone Ranger to Star Trek has any series of books not deserving of a top read !!! I have personally purchased the Kindle version, Audible and the soft covers just to show my support in this series!!
So just sit back and enjoy!!! I do and I have no idea how many times I have re-read the series!!!
