Summary

A fight to the end...

The Confederation and the Union have fought each other to a standstill. Battered, exhausted fleets eye each other warily across a border that has been a battlefield for three bloody years. Neither side has the strength to attack, and both wait for reinforcements that will allow them to resume the fight.

On the worlds of the Iron Belt, the heavily industrialized sector near the Confederation's Core, massive shipyards operate around the clock, producing the great vessels that can end the war. The Union knows it cannot win the economic struggle with its wealthier, more productive enemy, and Sector Nine, its feared spy agency, is not idle. Their focus is not on the front lines, the ravaged border between the two nations, but far off, beyond the Rim, in the strange, militaristic realm known as the Alliance.

Sector Nine's intrigues are targeted at nothing less than instigating a coup and bringing to power a regime that favors war against the Confederation, a change in government that will bring the fresh fleets of the Alliance into the war, striking at the Confederation's unguarded flank.

Once again Captain Tyler Barron and his battleship Dauntless must go back to the Rim and on to the Alliance itself to somehow thwart the Union's plan...and prevent a two-front war the Confederation cannot win.

Again all happens far to quickly

Thank goodness for Fritz she is the real hero. Why does the enemy use the bombers so effectively but Baron doesn’t?

Intense

I have become addicted to this excellent series which does not seem to stop for breath. The different facets of the storylines come together like a well woven tapestry. I do like Jay Allen books, despite some of the repetition and they are well worth the credit.

Great series.

Duel in the dark was the best book 4 wasn't as good in terms of the story, however the narrator could read the phone book and make it interesting.

What a ride with Dauntless and her crew

Captain and and his crew once again have been asked to place themselves and their ship in the path of danger. Having just completed a major refit and shore leave, they will have to be at their best. Trouble is ahead, civil war has broken out in the Alliance, with the union forcing pulling the strings. The next book will be what I think give us the battle of all battles. Looking forward to it.

Not another one!

Did anyone listen to this narration before releasing it? It's awful! I hoped the style would change once other characters and conversations were introduced. But, no, the guy just drones on and on. My list of narrators to NOT listen to, ever, is getting longer. I couldn't stick with it long enough to see if the story had merit.

High Octane Action and Suspense!

Jay Allan ROCKS as a military sci-fi author! And he knows how to mix in edge-of-your-seat mystery and suspense. For awhile I thought he was going to disappoint me, but he didn’t, thankfully!

Jeffrey Kafer does his usual fantastic job of bringing it all to life!
