Publisher's Summary

A new home on the edge of nowhere. A new hope for a peaceful future. An old enemy that won’t let go.

Kira Demirci left her homeworld of Apollo, pursued by assassins, seeking revenge for her victories in the war against the Brisingr Kaiserreich. She now has a new home and a new role as the nova fighter wing commander aboard the mercenary carrier Conviction under Captain John Estanza.

Conviction is on retainer with the royal family of Redward, which encourages Kira and her pilots to make themselves a new home on the frontier planet. But there is a reason they want to tie the mercenary carrier’s crew more tightly to themselves...and storm clouds are brewing on the horizon.

Those clouds break when a Redward warship goes missing on a standard patrol. Conviction and her fighters are sent out to find the destroyer, but instead they find a deadly plot by old enemies that will bring down the Syntactic Cluster in fire and war.

Unless Kira Demirci can do the impossible.

After slogging thru books 1 & 2, I'm giving up

I gave book 1 only 2 stars, but I so wanted to like this series, that I bought and listened to book 2. It was no better than book 1.

First of all, after listening to over 20 hours (2 books), I don't care about any of the characters, because there is almost no character development in the books. That is a fatal flaw to me. Second, the first two books have so much meaningless "fill" in them, such as meaningless details about star systems and ships that have absolutely nothing to do with the story. As a result, we're left with only a small amount of story, which is about simple characters about whom we care nothing.

I really had to force myself to finish the book. But that's it - I'm giving up on this series.

Not worthy of a point !

Half way through starting to get a plot.
Wouldn't have made it this far except for hope.
The first book was great!
This is just boring.
