Publisher's Summary

The exciting conclusion to the Star Kingdom series.

Even though Professor Casmir Dabrowski has been fighting for months to help the kingdom and humanity as a whole, few people in positions of power have appreciated his unorthodox methods. Now, he's a captive of the king and being taken back to his home world without his friends or the crushers he relies upon to protect him. The king believes Casmir is responsible for the prince’s death and plans to have him publicly executed.

But bigger troubles are brewing for the Star Kingdom, and Casmir may once again be needed to find a creative solution to save his people and reshape the entire future of the Twelve Systems. But first, he’s got to escape and survive; no easy feat for a man stripped of his allies and marked as a rebel and a traitor.

Includes "The Main Event", a bonus story from the Star Kingdom series.

This was an awesome way to wrap up the series!

The characters are easy to fall in love with and are constantly making me laugh. This is an amazing series that rivals the best scifi I have read.

This is Awesome Storytelling

I can't say enough about the magic of this series! Everything is perfect. The story pulls you in and the writing makes you feel like you are hanging out with old friends. The dialogue - just perfect. I've listened to some of Lindsay's other stuff... And it's good, but just - this series is special. Just... Damn!!! I'll listen to these books again and again. Top shelf. I'm gifting the first book of this series to friends and telling everyone I know about it. How has this not sold 10K+ copies here on audible? How? I had never listened to Fred Berman before this series, and without a doubt, he is part of why this is sooooooo good - Sanderson w/ Kramer & Reading - Sullivan w/ TG Reynolds, Will Wight w/ Travis Baldree, Abercrombie w/ S Pacey - and now Buroker w/ Berman. When the writer finds the narrator - and both are this good - just... damn lucky to have found this series! I hope she continues to build this world.

Nice finish to a series with a big heart

This is a fine ending to a delightful story. If you have made it this far, you just have to listen to the last book. Everything is sewn up very nicely, and there's even a bonus at the end with the back story of a certain "sort of" villain.

This is not heavy stuff, so it is a perfect break from something like Sanderson while you are waiting for more brain cells to regenerate. At the same time, the characters are likable and well made, so it's not "just" a break from heavier stuff, either. It has a proper place and is worthy of the time and credits spent.

I liked the characters, the settings' believable descriptions, the variety of action scenes and the dramas with the awkward romances all fitting together to build the story and all come together with an ending that left me with a happy feeling.

more fun then playing video games

This book is engaging, thrilling, and just plain fun to listen to. The whole series is great. I will most certainly be recommending this book series to others.

perfect ending.. next series with the main event!!

I often compared this series and character to miles V. and that wonderful series from a teen with angst through to be a husband and father but still the savior of the universe.. dispite the many physical issues.. This series was not that epic.. but because it was set in a shorter time frame, and concentrated on a small group of heros ( most of the time reluctant hero's) but I am so happy with this ending.. and hoping that a new series with the main event could begin. I'd also like to see that ring built.. and Zee become the great and glorious leader that he knows he is.

Terrific series

I have totally enjoyed this series. I love Lindsay Buroker’s books but this series is her best in my opinion. On top of that, Fred Bergman is absolutely perfect with his performance. Great characters and a good storyline with humour. Superb
