Summary

Swords, Sex, and Rockets! 

Paradise falls. Humanity is thrown back to an age of steel and blood. Now the fuel that powers the "changed" world is up for grabs in an orbiting spacecraft. With only days to plan, rough and ready paladin Herzer Herrick must assemble a team of expert warriors capable of both seat-of-the-pants engineering and hand-to-hand combat in space. In the meantime, Herzer must face his own demons as he waits for his emotionally-scarred fiancé to recover and finally bed him. And if that's not enough, there's a horde of "changed" orcs and goblins who are intent on delivering the power above to their totalitarian masters below. This is one space race free humanity cannot afford to lose! 

Multiple New York Times and USA Today best seller John Ringo delivers another rousing entry in his Council Wars saga!

Definitely a sequel

Do you remember when you first saw Return of the Jedi and you were like "Wow that looked really cool" but in your heart you knew that Empire Strikes Back was a better movie?

This book is like that.

To make it worse, Megan went from a powerful hero overcoming exceptional obstacles in the last book to a whiny, fearful girl here. What happened?

That said I am sad the series is over. I don't think John Ringo expects to write a fifth book, so I will take my sad Return of the Jedi self and look for a new book series--which will probably be another series by John Ringo. LOL

poor editing

I like the story. I have enjoyed all of John Ringo's books.
This book the editing sucks, poor voice match on insertions. It is jarring to listen to Tim Fannon and find that in the middle of the text he is reading someone has inserted some minor text using perhaps a different person to read those few words or someone used a different recording studio.
I hope that this book is renarrated / rerecorded.

Good story - socially backward

The plot is fine, if sometimes a bit obvious, but entertaining. The outdated somewhat misogynistic dismissal of women does not age well. Also some of the concepts don't make sense in that basic caveman level intelligence is dismissed as lost.

very enjoyable production

I really enjoyed this series . the supply of fuel is due for resupply and must be controlled to prevent the other side from taking it all.
