Summary

Omnians, Earthers, and alliance members are fighting the Colony, the horde of sentient insectoids that threaten alliance space.

The Colony has had centuries to expand through the network of domes built by the Messinants, an ancient race. The domes’ Q-gates allow the insectoids to invade planets through their inventive use of rings, which extends the power of the domes.

It’s Omnian superior technology that gives a temporary advantage to the peaceful alliance members who lead the fight to retake their planets.

Omnian warships and fighters, Tridents and travelers, possess beam weapons to destroy the Colony’s shuttles and transports. However, the Colony escalates, turning its transports into deadly explosive traps.

In the past, the few alliance races that fought back could barely hold the line against the Colony’s seemingly never-ending incursions. Now, Jess Cinders leads a group of dedicated veterans armed with explosive dart weapons borrowed from the Loopah race.

Again, it’s the Omnian advanced tech that changes the dynamics in favor of the veterans. Engineers upgrade an invention first used decades ago. It’s a shadow, a multilegged avatar, with a mounted laser.

Unfortunately, for those races fighting to halt the Colony’s expansion, the insectoids aren’t willing to retreat. They fight back with even deadlier tactics that take the lives of the unwary.

i'm not sure if I can finish this story

The voice acting is so bad/machine like yet jumpthat it makes it hard for me to focus on the story. Considering getting this as an ebook so I can judge the story properly. Previous book voice acting was kind of bland but it allowed me to listen to the story without constantly being irritated. Will update the review if I can force myself to endure this audiobook to it's end.

What happened here?!?!?

This is the first time I’ve been unable to provide 5 stars for all of the rating of this series of books. I waited until a friend completed listening to this book before writing this review to make I wasn’t terribly off on my view. We both felt like this book was written by someone else and read by someone who hadn’t listened to the prior books or believed the audience was over the age of 10. We talked over what we thought might have happened and are left wondering if this was rushed to make a deadline or maybe lost a critical reviewer or represents some pressure on S H to target a younger audience. Regardless of the reason, instead of the usual compelling stories with mystery and craftily establishes situations - we are getting overly simple storyline with flat delivery and childish characters. Whatever happened here - be it an attempt to make these stories more accessible or deadline pressures or unavailable voice actors who love these stories for what they are - this book was a complete miss. S H is a great story teller and whatever pressures or circumstances led to this book and vocal actor should be resolved prior to publishing future works. These aren’t usually small children’s stories - please don’t present them as though they are. Thank you. Your sad and bewildered listeners....

Wtf

You get too fucking cheap to keep the same narrator? You trying to wreck a good book?

Interesting Contuation and Worth the Listen

I've just this year completed all the Silver Ships series. this sequel is good though it cast the characters in changing roles. little focus on Alex and Julian and Rene and more of a focus on the next set of strong leaders to pushback or find a solution to the invaders. I continue to listen and enjoy the stories and look forward to the next ones to come.

S.H. Jucha Strikes Gold Again!

Like rest of the series, Earthers maintains that same sense of awe, and incredible imagination that the first books of the series had, when Alex Racine was a mirror scrapper in human space. Looking forward to Talus!

Great Continuation

This book is a smooth continuation of the series' storyline and doesn't lose the character development and interplay that could have easily been lost in a story spanning such galactic events. Unfortunately, Ms. Poole's performance - though a step up from the previous book - still needs some improvement and lacks the top tier performance of the original narrator for the series. I look forward to hearing her continue to improve, but at times it can be a bit distracting to hear changes in pronunciations and character portrayals. Nonetheless, i still recommend this book and both series to anyone looking for days of escapism. Keep up the great work, Mr. Jucha.
