Summary

The Sol System was conquered and humans lived as slaves for 500 long years.

Now, after years of brutal warfare, humanity has been liberated. Liberation, however, comes at a cost, and the Sol System has become nothing more than a puppet state for a vast galactic empire.

For Jon Pike, a war hero who has lost everything, there is no substitute for freedom. He blames the aliens for humanity's troubles, especially the one living inside him.

But when he is sent on a top secret mission into unexplored regions of the galaxy he discovers that humanity's troubles are just getting started.

Can he find freedom for himself and humanity?

This hero suuuucked

I just hate stories with sub par protagonist. This guy is augmented top of the human chain of evolution but could not buy a frikken vowel (or an ounce of luck) to save his ass. The author gave me nothing with which to desire to buy the next book, just a muscle bound sad sack. The orator stated off slow but at least he picked up.

Garbage

Boring and stupid. I like science fiction but I couldn't get through this dumpster fire.
