Summary

Artifice, the great enemy, has been defeated. The sister SADEs, Omnian sentient digital entities, are free from their boxes. Most humans are unaware that the sisters have duplicated themselves many more times than suspected. They now constitute a sizable, powerful group, calling themselves the Sisterhood.

The elimination of Artifice’s rule should be a time of relief and recovery for Alex Racine’s Omnian fleet and for the Toralians, whose home world was Artifice’s lair. Instead, it’s a chaotic period.

Visitors appear, sailing the distinct, black-hulled Toralian battleships. Five colonial governors wish to witness the recovery of the ancient home world. President Sargut welcomes them, but Alex is suspicious about the governors’ motives. In a face-to-face meeting, it becomes clear that the governors have a dark, ulterior purpose.

With the release of the federacy from Artifice’s reign, word reaches the Omnians that races are embracing their newfound freedom. Some enjoy peace, some desire expansion, and some yearn for revenge. 

The races’ latter choices mean danger for the Toralians and Alex’s fleet. Powerful battleship fleets are either sailing for the Toralian home world to exact reprisals, or they’re seeking new territory. Every encounter presents a challenge for the Omnian fleet.

Some fleets have crossed the federacy’s boundary and are headed toward humankind’s worlds. Alex and the Omnians face a difficult choice. They must choose whether to defend the Toralian home world, which is forming a nascent society, or chase the fleets that are headed toward their planets.

Engaging

This is one of my favorite series. I am so glad I discovered S. H. Jucha. This is book number 13 of the series. I felt that Jucha was using this installment to bring loose ends together and unite the system that was ruled by Artifice before heading home.

The book is well written and suspenseful with the discovery of a fleet on the way to their home world. It is great to visit Alex Racine and friends. My favorites are still the SADA’s. I can hardly wait for the next issue to come out.

The book is fifteen hours and twenty minutes. Grover Gardner does an excellent job narrating the book. Gardner has won all the awards for audiobook narration. In 2018 he was the Publishers Weekly “Audiobook Narrator of the Year” and Audiofile Magazine’s “Best Voice of the Century”.

Solid Silver Ships story

I've been with this series from the beginning and like the way this book took its time an fleshed out the characters a bit more than previous books. If you remind yourself how "Alex" started in book one it is kind of a stretch to accept his swagger towards the end of this book, but I then flipped through the previous titles and remember how much his character has gone through.

Some very interesting topics introduced in this book and it is nice to have a 15 hour listen to 'mentally chew' on. I did find myself going back a few chapters when I had lost my way - that is a complement as if I wasn't engaged I would let it just slip by.

I look forward to the next book and this narrator.

Eh still plot armor

Somehow Alex once again has to fight no fleet battles. Every battle takes place with him not there. In the whole series only one battle has happened with him nearby and that lost 1/3rd his fleet. All Alex battles have him bluff or intimate but never fight. He fought drone fighters once but then bluffed the battle fleets to flee. Honestly the plot armor that every species he comes across has no spine and flees always ,is annoying. Just once cant the author have a 'aggressive species' be aggressive and fight to the death or at least heavy losses. No one goes to fight battles and just backs down due to looking fierce without even a skirmish, its stupid and unbelievable.
