Publisher's Summary

With the System States Union now crushed and Trojan's new Empire on the rise, former foes become allies in a desperate attempt to prevent not only the collapse of human civilization but also the complete extermination of humanity at the hands of a diabolical new power player. Is salvation really possible, or was it all just rumors?

Rumors of Salvation contains strategic and tactical space battles as part of the grand vista of an interstellar war from the point of view of both high-level strategy and up-close-and-personal fighting.

Great performance held back by bad technology.

Ideas, concepts and technology are not fleshed out nearly enough. Even just a bit of other reading in SciFi your see how much more the different technologies in warfare have been thought about and used such as railguns and KEWs.

Great series with a rushed ending.

Overall it was good. My only problem is the ending. It honestly needed an epilogue at the very least.

Terrible ending

Story was good but the final act seemed to be rushed.
it was almost like there was a time limit.

An Excellent Series of books.

The theme was very plausible and very well written. The end of each book carried forward the action of the first part of the story and continued thru each book to the end of the Fourth book. A very enjoyable read! Looking forward to reading other books by this author!

Good series

one thing that I respect is the end of a story. The trend as of late is to stretch out the story into as many books as When this happens, I tend to detect it and lose interest after just a couple of books into the series. This end came up a little precipitously as I think that the author, after telling a good story, realized that there wouldn't be enough material to justify another book, so he wrapped it up.

Perfect

Straight and to the point. Not flowery and over descriptive. Characters were great. I think I might listen to it again. Classic SciFi.

amazing book, but the ending spoiled it.

loved the series non stop listening. But the ending needs to be rewritten spoils the whole series. the ending was rushed and a potential really exciting part of the book was just shorten down and ended quick as possible it's a shame.

Thinking Story

This is not a series to listen to in separation from each book to appreciate the story needs to be listened to consequently to keep up with the story I enjoyed the scope of the story

Truly dull

The first two books were not bad, the story bumped along and I certainly wanted to get to the third part. Once I did, what a disappointment! I’ve barely finished and already I’ve pretty much forgotten all about it. Its description without a story, words with no meaning, prose with no sense. Best avoided.
