The final battle begins.

The Xaros Masters destroyed Bastion, the Alliance against the alien invaders has failed. Earth stands against the full force of the enemy's unending drone fleets.

With their backs against the wall, Captain Valdar and the Breitenfeld must lead a last ditch mission to end the war against the Xaros.

Can humanity pay the price for ultimate victory?

    "Good Ending"

    It ends the series how you expect there are no surprises, but that don't mean it was bad, it's always hard to say good bye to the characters you have got to know over 9 books, but the author does leave a lot in the last chapter to do spinoffs...

    "Characters can be a bit petulant"

    The characters seem a bit bratty and flat.
    I enjoyed the series but I don't think it's worth 9 credits

    "Read or listen to this series now!"

    Most enjoyable sci-fi series I have ever listened too! Believable characters that you feel you know. As an ex serviceman I could relate to every member of the troop. This would make an excellent Tv series or films. Thank you Richard Fox.

    "funny, charming and with likable characters"

    I've loved this set of books from start to finish. I've enjoyed getting to know the characters and I'm absolutely gutted to be finished. it's not a perfect book, it was just right for me though. Suspend disbelief and just enjoy it.

    "An incredible end."

    This is by far the best book in the saga by a country mile. It is also by far, the most emotionally charged instalment.

    "A satisfying end"

    The action picks up quickly and I don't know how Luke Daniels can keep track of all the different voices! All the loose ends seem accounted for- what a fun addictive series this was!
