Summary

Scum of the Universe is a fast-paced military sci-fi shooter filled with spaceships, guns, tech and warfare. It follows on from book six in the Fire and Rust series, Nullifier, and concludes the Fire and Rust series.

The Ragger and Sekar aliens have pushed humanity to the brink of annihilation. Two hopes for survival - genetic modifications to protect against the Sekar, and the death pulse generator - are years from completion. 

With no other choice, Fleet Admiral Stone is forced to make a deal with the devil in the form of a mutually beneficial exchange of technology with the back-stabbing Raggers. 

Naturally, the Raggers haven’t changed. However, the aliens are about to discover that when humanity is pushed into a corner, anything goes. In a game of lies, threats and false promises, Stone must do what he can to come out ahead. 

If he fails, billions die.

A fine ending to this story line

A short but exciting story with excellent voice narration and exciting story line. I don't know if this is the end of the story, but it is a great season clincher.
