Publisher's Summary

Admiral Geary's First Fleet of the Alliance has survived the journey deep into unexplored interstellar space, a voyage that led to the discovery of new alien species, including a new enemy and a possible ally. Now Geary's mission is to ensure the safety of the Midway Star System, which has revolted against the Syndicate Worlds empire - an empire that is on the brink of collapse. 

To complicate matters further, Geary also needs to return safely to Alliance space not only with representatives of the Dancers, an alien species, but also with Invincible, a captured warship that could possibly be the most valuable object in human history. Despite the peace treaty that Geary must adhere to at all costs, the Syndicate Worlds regime threatens to make the fleet's journey back grueling and perilous. 

And even if Geary escorts Invincible and the Dancers' representatives safely unharmed, the Syndics' attempts to spread dissent and political unrest may have already sown the seeds of the Alliance's destruction....

Critic Reviews

"Rummel's performance is so entertaining that he makes listeners want to hear how he'll perform the story. He populates the international starfleet military with a multitude of accents. While his female characters tend to sound alike, his men growl and swagger through space with brio." ( AudioFile)

satisfying plot, amazing narration

for the most part there were few surprises in the story this time. I sense the author intended this to be a break in pace, a pause to reflect for the reader add much as for the characters. usual engaging battles with satisfying outcomes. and few moments of cringing.

Christian Rummel's narration and voice acting is amazing. I totally but into his characters, no matter their gender or their accent.

The production on this recording lacks the music from earlier books, but it is no less in quality, and the direction is spot on.

good story but a bit repetitive on the details

I've read or listened to both series now and i must admit although the story is good the repeated details are becoming a little tiresome, it feels like a weak effort to get the word count up. After 10 books i think we get how the author means up down port starboard in space at the very least it only needs explaining once in each book surely.

good yarn continues

If you could sum up Guardian in three words, what would they be?

electric yet predictable

Have you listened to any of Christian Rummel’s other performances? How does this one compare?

very good as usual

Any additional comments?

overall I think the books are quite good, but I would class them as good for most readers but some will find the repetitive themes boring, younger readers will love them ( my 20yr olds love them)
