Publisher's Summary

The fog of war clouds everything. Enemies lurk in the shadows, within the very fleet sworn to protect United Earth. Conspiracies and murder abound, and in the background.... The stalled alien invasion lurks.

The Golgothic ship has burrowed deep into the core of Saturn's moon Titan, whose mass slowly but inexorably increases. The Dolmasi, once allies of United Earth in the Second Swarm War, now attack us, unhinged and without reason. And all the while, Admiral Shelby Proctor works to answer the most urgent questions of all: what was a piece of the old ISS Victory doing inside the Golgothic ship? And was it Captain Tim Granger's voice that whispered from the doomed ship, "Shelby, they're coming?"

And ...are they the Swarm? If they are, God help us all.

Worst book in the series

Too much intrigue by stupid leaders. It was irritating to the preposterous end. I was waiting for this book. I'm not sure how he redeems the series after all of the off putting tangents the main characters now find themselves on.

Slow and boring.

Like the title says, "Slow and boring'
I can't say I really connected to any of the characters. It was quite a struggle to finish.

Jumped the Shark

The first 3 books were fantastic. The fourth struggled to justify itself, and this one finally has convinced me to abandon the series. The surgery seems to think that everything needs to one up itself. The enemies need to be bigger. The problems need to be more desperate. The solutions come out of nowhere, and are fantastical, such as dreams and predictions of the future. The conflict from within needs to be more crippling, to the point where the characters seem like they can't be real people, because they are that stupid.

Things have just gotten out of the authors control, and it's just not interesting anymore.

Very big letdown!

After the others in the series I was very disappointed. Would not recommend this to anyone! I hope he can get it right next time. To many useless words and details that were useless. Stretched a short story into a book!

Outstanding series, great narration!

This has been a great series, intriguing! & captivating. Makes it so you can hardly wait to get to the next book in the series. The narration doesn't disappoint either! With so many different caractures to portray the narrator does an excellent job! Read the whole series, you won't be disappointed!

Not up to prior books in the series

Stupid humor (attempted), disconnected and illogical plot, characters (previously heroic and thoughtful) now inconsistent with past behavior acting and speaking nonsensically, artificial and contrived plot points and illogical character responses to these points. It seemed to me that the author responded to pressures to get the book written - “this time with humor”- with little care for prior excellent storylines. Dear Author, Please stop! If you do more give it the care and effort a good thing really deserves!

Not good at all

Spoiler alert!
Capitalists are greedy and want to profit from war. Politicians are stupid and in bed with corporations. Military high command mostly stupid and incompetent. Really fresh and original thoughts :)
Heroes are super smart and have a genius people all around by chance. But no AI or sophisticated computers to run data analysis.
No logic whatsoever. Technically catastrophic. Antiphase of antimatter explosion??? Ship tracking all cameras and sensors pointed to it to produce stealth? Unbelievable.
Previous books in the series were fun, but this one just unbelievably bad.
