"Welcome to the Pelaran Alliance...."
With those simple words, the Guardian spacecraft openly revealed itself to humanity, heralding a new chapter in its 500-year-long mission to cultivate our world. Earth's population must now make its first planet-wide decision - join the most powerful alliance in our galaxy or chart our own course, deciding for ourselves which civilizations are worthy of our trust. Will we be the first world to decline the Pelarans' invitation, or does their offer come with an implied threat?
Aboard Terran Fleet Command's flagship, TFS Navajo, Admiral Kevin Patterson assembles his formidable but untested forces in hopes of defending the Earth. Knowing that an attack is imminent, he must risk everything in hopes of finding his enemy and taking the initiative.
Returning from TFC's first battle, Captain Tom Prescott learns that his frigate, TFS Ingenuity, is more heavily damaged than expected. Now he must race against time to prepare a new ship, then execute a daring mission to save Earth's last and best hope of avoiding full-scale interstellar war.

It is a good story, goes along slowly with all the descriptions and the book is very short so the author could add a few more interludes. Yes just bought the third book,
I was very disappointed by this book. Went completely off the rails towards the end. You are left no further forward in the main story at the conclusion of this book. Sure, some nice things happen and there are good moments that make you whoop/curse for humanity but the primary arc advances slower than a sub light excursion to the edge of the known Universe.
"great series with good story and action "
I dropped one star because it's like the book is over just when it's getting good. book 1 and 2 could have made one good book. still can't wait for the next book in the series.
"Great listen loved it can't wait for book 3"
Hopeing for book 4 and book 5 ect it could go on for a long time
"Not since the early work of Ryk Brown have I enjoyed such a series"
I don't know if it is Mr Kafer reading or the parallels between young, outgunned, overmatched Captains but I really am into this series. It's probably a little of both.
The story is original and great with the perfect mix of important factors. In all my reviews I try not to say too much, I just to try convey my ratings and whether or not I think people should buy. Do yourself a favor and buy.
I eagerly loom forward to the next in series.
This was an military story set in the future. I could believe that this is a future reality. I enjoyed this very much and I am downloading the next book right now
"Great MIl Sci Fi series"
No, I routinely do not re-listen to books, as they don't hold up for me, that said, I would place it in the list with my Honor Harrington books, which get dragged out every 5 years or so..
The descriptions of the the ship arrivals and departures and the methods used are really interesting and well written to hold your attention. The battle scenes are vivid and well laid out, thoughtful, and the author uses his science to support the methods.
As I said in the Ingenuity review, Mr Kafer sounds just like the narrator from the Frontier saga, if you liked them, you will definitely like him. He is very well enunciated, clear and has enough range that you never get confused on which character is speaking. The true test of an audio book is when you can listen to it and not have to try to decide who it is that is speaking. He passes the test very well.
Enjoyable and satisfaction at a well written science fiction space navy book. Hard to do with out making up a whole bunch of unique physics, and Mr. Harris has done a good job of using current "stories" "The Greys", and a plausible connection to the future, to make his tech believable and real.
Great series, fun to listen too, good characters and well read. A most satisfactory audio book experience!
"Try it you'll like it !"
If you enjoy GOOD Military SCi-FI you've found it here . It's not Star Trek or Star Wars maybe but it's worth your time .
There is a certain type of voice that I like to hear in action novels. I don't know if a similar tone can be heard while reading the same novel but the situational and tactical response descriptions kept an imaginative picture in my mind. Then sadness arrived as the book ended - But I wanted more! Can't wait till the next book is available in audio format!
"Great continuation of the story"
Really enjoying this series. I hope book 3 is available soon. Excellent narrator for this book.
the action is just beginning and very very captivating story. can't wait to book 3 book 4 and others
"little short on the story line."
