Summary

A leader left behind. An Alliance falling apart. Friends stranded on an enemy-held world. A chance to rediscover long-forgotten truths. The new threat will require an immediate response. But first, Jessica and the Ghatazhak must execute a daring rescue in order to secure their future. But to do so, they need the one man they have been trying to protect. The question is: Will he agree?

Thanks be to the voice gods!

Excellent story as usual! THANK YOU for getting Jeffery Kafer back! I was fearful that we were going to have to struggle with a new narrator after Kafer had done such an incredible job bringing great this world alive.

Welcome back Mr. Kafer !!!!

I could only skim they the previous title as the narration was horrible. Wasn't sure if I would be able to continue wit the series. Thankfully we got Jeffery Kafer back and all is as it should be In the cluster. Oh and the story was top notch. I am excited to see where this goes.

Jeffrey Kafer is back

Thank you for bringing Mr. Kafer back to narrate. He brings the true nature of each character to life. No disrespect to the narrator of Escalation but he made all of the characters whiny brats. Welcome back to the Frontier Mr. Kafer

another great book in the series

another great book by Ryk Brown, also extremely happy they used Jeffrey Kiefer again, great hearing the voices of characters I'm used to from the first 15 books. they really should rerecord the last book.

Engaging

I have enjoyed this series and am very happy with finding the author Ryk Brown. He has become one of the science fiction authors I now routinely read.

This book is more of a filler telling about what has happened since Nathan Scott turned himself over to the Jung for trial and the renewal of the attacks by the Jung in the last book. In this book, we learn about the break-up of the Alliance. The story primarily follows Jessica, Josh, Loki, General Tellis and Admiral Dumar.

Jessica joins with General Tellis and team on a new home world near the Coninar sector. Jessica’s entire family has moved with her. Under Tellis’s training, Jessica is controlling her anger. Admiral Dumar has retired and living on Coninar. Josh and Loki are with General Tellis. We are introducing to Connor Tuplo, who is a clone of Nathan Scott.

The book is well written and the plot twists and turns. The pace is fast. There are no space battles, but there is the rescue of the Dumar family, Loki’s family and the clone doctors along with lots of suspense. Mainly the book centers on the building relationship between Jessica and Tellis. I cannot wait for the next book in the series.

The book is eight hours long. Jeffrey Kafer does an excellent job narrating the series. Kafer is a voice-over artist and award-winning audiobook narrator.

RYK BROWN IS A BRILLIANT WRITER ! SUPERB PERFORMANCE BY JEFFREY KAFER.

Most enjoyable! I loved every bit of it. The storyline is fantastic. I was so...upset when Nathan surrendered to the enemy. Jeffrey Kafer was awesome! I like his performance. It would be wonderful if Audible can replace book 1 of the second series with Jeffrey Kafer reading it. I hope Ryk Brown would write book 3 ASAP.

Fast paced military sci-fi? yes pleaee

I wish the episodes were longer... or at least not full priced. Aside from that, Ryk delivers another nail biter.

Outstanding Series - Exceptional Narration

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

Ryk Brown's Frontier's Saga continues to be the reason why Military Sci-Fi is the premier Genre, with exceptional Characters, outstanding space battles, and an epic Universe that he continues to build upon in each episode. This is a series that is a MUST for anyone who is a fan for Mil Sci-Fi. After taking us through such a spectacular ride in the first series, the 2nd is already building. Brown has continued to develop his Characters not letting them stagnate, and he is not above taking out his main characters either, adding to the suspense.
These books are exceptional reads, and Rescue is a pivotal story in this continuing Sage.

What other book might you compare Rescue to and why?

There are other series that are similar in nature, but Ryk Brown's Frontiers Saga is an Epic series that is a standout.
Other series that are also exceptional though include the RIM Confederacy by Jim Rudnick and the Merkiaari Wars Series by Mark Cooper, there are many more that Im sure will turn up in comments sections below :-)

Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Jeffrey Kafer is one of the best narrator's out there. He is often associated with Mil Sci-Fi, and for good reason. He has an exceptional range of voices, both Male and Female. He narrates very clearly, articulating his words to give the full nuance of what the Author intended. I have listened to multiple books read by Kafer, and he is easily one of the best Narrator's out there. When choosing an audiobook, if Mr Kafer is reading it, this is often a selling point for me, because he is so good.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Can They Save Him?

Any additional comments?

This is a brilliant book - and has exceptional narration as well - if you have not read/listened to this series, it is not too late, dive in now, it is well worth it. If you have, and aren't up to this yet, this is exceptional and definitely worth your time.

very good

definitely enjoyed the second book of the series. I think I understand why they use different narrator for the first one too. if you liked the first series I think you'll definitely like this book.

Again, just wow!

During the flashback chapters, despite knowing the future so to speak, parts of that were really difficult to get through. Yet another incredible book in the frontiers saga.
