Summary

After years of catastrophic fighting, the rebellion is over. The First Galactic Empire has fallen. Instead of liberation and a return to democracy, freedom, and a new golden age, humanity has been plunged into darkness.

Eighteen years after the Great Fall of civilization, stranded on the wrecked world Asherho, Keira Kane struggles to make her way. Adopted, protected, and raised by former Imperial Marines, Keira has been trained as a mechanic and technician. Her skillset is indispensable to maintaining the decaying infrastructure of her dying planet.

Keira rapidly finds herself a fugitive, hunted not only by the government she has served but by the planetary militia who wants her for their own nefarious reasons. Unbeknownst to Keira, her Imperial Marine companions have been guarding an incredibly valuable secret, one that has the potential to save humanity or see its light extinguished from the galaxy forever.

Keira is thrust into a life-or-death struggle she never imagined. The road ahead is not only dangerous, but a path destined for her alone.

Does she have the courage to walk it? Or will she falter and allow humanity to continue its fall into darkness? Only time will tell....

Slow first half

Initially i was enjoying the concept, so different from Marc’s other books. However I stopped after 50%, nothing notable was happening, so i left it a few weeks and came back, ironically i seemed to have stopped just before it really picked up because i really enjoyed the second half. Book of two halves for me. I’ll give the 2nd book a go!

slow burn

slow build up to chapter 10 first clue and heats up 13/14 , it's a sort of star wars story and though not as enjoyable to me as karus or stiger I will be interested to see where it goes next. John lees' narration is an acquired taste and always takes half hour to adapt to his voice but he delivers throughout if I take few breaks.

Frustratingly slow to get going

Love the author, but I found this particularly slow to get going. Explaining characters day to day chores like showering wasn’t really necessary to the story development. Only kicks off at chapter 14 and then it’s a bit of a rush. Still a well told story and looking forward next one
