Summary

A starship lost. A creator found. A frantic race to save them both.

For Colonel Mitchell "Ares" Williams, there is no giving up. There is no going back. The Goliath may have fallen into enemy hands, but the war must go on.

After all, he and the Riggers have what they need to locate the Creator, the man responsible for the alien threat and the key to unraveling their unstoppable attack. All they have to do is get to him before the Tetron do.

It's no easy task, but nothing about the war has ever been easy, and the Riggers still have a few tricks left up their sleeves.

Excellent end to my week!

I did really enjoy this as a series, but there were just a couple of things in this that tripped me up as a reader and I really would have preferred that M. R. Forbes take this a diff way, but it is what it is, it's still very good writing. If not a little predictable.

I wish Mitch was a little bit more sorry and knowingly sorry that he lost Millie, it seems one min he's grieving and then the next he's wanting to sex up the nearest woman again, I'd have much preferred in this that he actually did grieve as a character, that he did turn the advances away, not be the one constantly thinking about his sex drive...

I wish that they'd had a little time to warn Earth, to be on the defensive, to win something... not for Mitch to have to sacrifice everything along the way, it seems so so bad. The enemy is always one step ahead, and that really sucks.

However, other than that, there were some great defining moments in here and I really do hope that Jeffery gets to narrate the next one, or it might be a long time till I get to read it.

Thanks to you both for an awesome ride. I've enjoyed it, I've had goosebumps, I've had tears in my eyes! and love in my heart. More please....

:)

My favorite space series

This is the best space battle series I've heard. I listen to each book several times. The characters, plot, tension - even the enemies - keep me riveted. And Jeffrey Kafer does a superb job with narration. I wish new War Eternal books came out every month. I'll keep buying them as long as Mr. Forbes keeps writing them.

Do yourself a favor and listen to the first book in the series: Starship Eternal. I think you'll be hooked on War Eternal too.

It doesn't get any better than this.

Great performance, characters, and story. You need to pay attention because the story is faced paced and if you try to multitask you'll miss something important. lol.

Same old same old.

Overwhelming odds that drag on and on with last moment surprise out of nowhere rescue. It really gets tiring.

Gets better and better!

I love the twists and turns the story takes! I am such a sci-fi fan. I can’t wait to start the next book in this series. If you enjoy sci-fi for the adventure, the escape, and imagination then start listening.

It started out well, but has just dragged on too

long. I hope in never have to hear RIGAH! again. The series should have ended with this book. It has become formulaic and predictable. Now we go bouncing around in time?

that was great

I'm an avid space battle sci fi fan. These books are quite good in my opinion. Outside of the norm. New ideas.

I Didn't Finish

I finished the last book but this is just more of the same as the first three. Maybe you could skip to the last. Sending back.
