In the year 2420, war looms between the galaxy's two most powerful empires: the tyrannical Theocracy and the protectionist Commonwealth. Caught in the middle sits the occupied outpost system Cadiz, where young officer and aristocrat Katherine "Kat" Falcone finds herself prematurely promoted at the behest of her powerful father. Against her own wishes, Kat is sent to command the Commonwealth navy's newest warship, Lightning.

Good story. Couple of very annoying pronunciations (admiralty, Gibraltar and Cadiz) took away from an otherwise good performance.

As a child of the late 70's I loved reading this book as I remembered so much of the content and got a major nostalgia kick from it... But, when I came across it in the Audible.com.au store and saw it was narrated by Will Weaton, I just had to get it. There could be no better or more appropriate person to relate this story... And I was not at all disappointed. I highly recommend this book to everyone!

Loved it even more than the first time I read the book. The narrators range of voice and tone was great and really added to the depth of the story.

The penultimate volume of the mighty Riftwar Cycle. War rages in Midkemia but behind the chaos there is disquieting evidence of dark forces at work. Jim Dasher’s usually infallible intelligence network has been cleverly dismantled; nowhere is safe. He feels that the world is coming apart at the seams and is helpless to protect his nation. Quiet palace coups are underway in Roldem and Rillanon; and King Gregory of the Isles has yet to produce an heir.

The authority of the Syndicate Worlds’ government is crumbling. Civil war and rebellion are breaking out in many star systems, despite the Syndic government’s brutal attempts to suppress disorder. Midway is one of those star systems, and leaders there must decide whether to remain loyal to the old order or fight for something new.

Excellent work like all of the audio books. Only thing that could make them better is multiple voice actors and maybe sound effects
