Summary

Earth’s greatest protection will become its biggest threat.

When the Confederation gathers a grand armada ostensibly to liberate Earth from the Boxans, the crew of the Athena must stop them before it’s too late.

Some species believe they can avoid war and endure the oppression of the Confederation while others choose to resist. The Athena and her crew struggle to keep the Star Alliance from splintering apart by offering them something unthinkable. 

Ascension is the final book in the Ascension series, an action-packed space opera saga that spans worlds. A journey that began when the brave crew of the Athena left Earth to investigate an alien structure discovered in the furthest reaches of the solar system will now come to an end.

Athena and here Crew

Its a great story, sadly that’s the last book. Wish there be a continuation. The crew of Athena continues the fight to the end, and now every species want the advanced technology Athena posses, while earth have been infiltrated. As all the previous books, there is so much happening that you just keep interest in listening on what will happen next.

Great series to read/listen to.

The series really makes you invest in all the characters and follow everyone's individual story closely.

Finished series on a high point

While book 5 was disappointing in a couple of areas, I decided to get Ascension, the last in this series arc, I was pleased to find that Ken Lozito restored Zack's usefulness as a premier hacker and as a critical character to the outcome of the story. Kaylan's character didn't expand her psychokinesis abilities but was able to lead the Alliance forces against the Xiiginn Confederation due to her acknowledged superior capabilities by the other leaders. Athena also morphed into something beyond what the Boxen and her creators had been able to create.

I found the decision to offer Zack, instead of Kaylan, the ownership position of a corporation somewhat misplaced since his character lacked what would normally be considered as leadership qualities.

Still, the author did complete all the open issues and even left enough wiggle-room for a follow-on new series.

Jeff Hays continues to exhibit his narrating performance agility and skills in voicing many different characters and their personality traits, adding to the book's listening experience.

Great Ending

I loved the ending, but I'm still sad to find the story, and the characters' journeys, at an end. I completely recommend this series.
