Publisher's Summary

Night is falling.  

The unstoppable Hegemony invasion has reached the very heart of the Confederation. Battle after desperate battle has been fought, and each time, the Confeds have been pushed back, columns of battered and blasted ship retreating from system to system. Now, they prepare to grimly defend the capital world of Megara, the very center of the Confederation.  

Tyler Barron prepares for what could be his final battle, a final desperate defense, one last chance to stem the tide of Hegemony conquest and subjugation. The fleet is ready, its exhausted crews prepared to fight with all the strength that remains to them. Still, the enemy is overpoweringly strong, and the odds of victory are slipping quickly away.  

But, there is still hope. From unexpected allies. From the grit and determination of the defending fleets and their spacers. And, from a plan so daring it borders on the impossible…a wild and desperate gamble to stem the tide of conquest and halt the enemy.  

It is night, and everywhere there is darkness, but the Confederation is not beaten yet. Barron and his comrades will stand, and they will struggle to somehow endure the darkness and fight through to the dawn.

Too much introspection by morons

About 69% of the book is internal dialogue about their pain, determination and honor. Monotonous.

Too much reviewing

The entire first 1/2 of the book spends way to much time talking about what has already happened in the other books. Seriously if someone started reading or listening to this series at book 10 it’s there own fault if they are lost. It started with book 8 then Book 9 has the same major problem as book 10. I am not sure at this point if I will get book 11 if I have to suffer through so much rehashing. Jay Allen if you read this review please please please give us more story and less time spent copying and pasting what you already wrote in books 1 - 10. I don’t care if the next book is 1/2 as thick as this one.

Long winded noble sacrifice porn

Good. Freaking. Lord. Can the next book buck the trend of waxing romantic about self sacrifice every third paragraph? Seriously, a single character decides that their honorable sacrifice is for the better good, spelled out in eye rolling amounts of prose, 4 times in the same story and probably 12+ times in the series... There was more angst in here than exists in all of the middle schools in California, basically the first 2/3 of the book, imagine Twilight for politics in space with battleships. The last third was more in line with the first books, decent technical military scifi, tho it too had plenty of hand-wringing.

A very tense enjoyable read.

Lots of fleet actions. Desparate battles and heorics. A good listen from beginning to end.

Amazing, one of the best

An awesome entry and I can’t wait for the next. I would like to see some additional context for the Hegemony and their external enemies.

Keep them coming!

One of the best series

Edge of my seat listening to another great book by Allen. This series has been great to listen to and read. I can’t think of one book in the series that let me down.
