Publisher's Summary

First contact gone wrong....

It was every starship captain’s nightmare, and for Travis Miller, it was his own personal hell.

He’d done everything by the book, but when the Tahni had attacked him and his crew, there was no choice but to return fire and destroy the first alien vessel humans had ever encountered.

Excoriated in the press, his career in shambles, Travis is exiled to a long patrol of the outer colony worlds. Forgotten, except as a bad example...until the Tahni prove him right by declaring war on the human commonwealth.

Now, Travis Miller is the tip of the spear. Humanity’s best hope for turning back an overwhelming assault on human space. Because to the Tahni, humans are infidels and this is a holy war....

Don’t miss the next explosive series from the number-one Amazon best-selling author of Contact Front, Rick Partlow. This is military sci-fi the way it’s meant to be. It’s perfect for fans of Jay Allan, Jasper T. Scott, and Scott Bartlett.

Very entertaining!

An interesting take on a Space Opera. The narration was excellent, world building and filling out of characters was well done.

Six Stars

I’d give Rick Partlow’s new series six stars if I could!
Cronin’s able, talented performance brings an added bonus to Partlow’s newest tour-de-force.
Human, believable characters, imaginative plot lines in a masterfully crafted, fast moving, yet suspenseful work delights the reader/listener.
As highly recommended for fans of great mil sci-fi as Partlow’s preceding series. Added bonus...if you’re new to Partlow’s work, he has a huge backlist of work every bit as good as Genesis. You can spend time there while waiting for ‘next’ book. U

Great book and characters

Best book from Rick Partlow. He has grown as a writer and now the story and characters is amazingly good. I was a bit skeptical after reading a few bad books from others authors before this and this book surprised me. Looking forward to the next one.

Good one

I liked the story overall but i didn't like that after the interlude there were new characters introduced just so there could be actual combat not just the ship to ship which was really good. During the povs of Ryan and Jessica i pretty much zoned out but still i will be buying book 2

Great read for fans of very humanist military SF

An incredibly fun story, harrowing and acknowledges the humans in the mix. No previous in-universe books needed. Highly recommended.

Great story, can't wait for more.

A well crafted story with believable characters. My first Partlow book but not by last.
