Publisher's Summary

Betrayed by allies. Beset by new foes. Earth faces its darkest hour since the Xaros invasion.

The Toth come to the solar system with a fleet of warships, and they demand the only tool that can rekindle the human race. It falls on Marine Lieutenant Hale to negotiate a pact that will save the human race at the cost of its soul - or start a war with a race of alien predators.

    "Another brilliant edition to the series"

    The voice acting is on point again, the story and plot thickens which makes this series a must listen to!

    "Great continuation of the saga"

    It is only now, after book 4 that I can ignore the terrible accents trying to be Scottish or Australian. The narration is overall not bad at all and the story, caricature development and speed is excellent. I think if I had to choose book three is the best so far. Hope this helps

    "satisfying installment in a great series"

    A lot of my audible purchases are based on following narrators I like; Luke Daniels is one of my all time favorites. I've stumbled onto more than one new author this way and Richard Fox is the latest great find. His story telling is clean and well thought out, and his characters are engaging and relatable. I've enjoyed alternately cursing and cheering for Mark Ibara. Each novel has had a satisfying conclusion, but the murky background of increasingly complex alien politics and the steadily unfolding mystery of the Xaros' origin and purpose leaves the story plenty of room to grow. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

    Story
    "awesome"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great action described with the perfect amount of battle scenes, scifi techno-babble, human anguish and a healthy does of humor


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Valdar-strong moral core
    mark ibarra-cunning and ruthless in service of humanity
    Gaul -she is a badass
    toth-wonderfully disgusting and evil


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    read with feeling and multiple voices helps listeners better visualize the story


    Any additional comments?

    I don't agree/understand the anger against the tank grown humans and the author's preoccupation with souls; seems anachronistic. While scifi grappling with whether ai is alive/have souls is not new (data, ceylons) , these Procedurals are created with egg and sperm and are unique individuals
