Publisher's Summary

After the events at Camp David, the Terran Alliance faces a crossroads - act upon this tragedy and start a war, or refrain and change the course of history.

The choice is not easy. The incident leaves a young captain, Lucy Grimes, in full control of the Alliance, thrust against her will into leadership of the most powerful organization known to man.

As the Terran Alliance grows in size and strength, there are those both on Earth and off who see this as a direct threat. While the Alliance endeavors to defend its home world from all enemies, both foreign and domestic, they soon find that this fledgling organization isn’t going down without a fight.

An alien civilization known as the Korvil has captured two humans and are torturing them to learn more about this new enemy. Things suddenly shift when the Shiravi - dubbed the Builders - mount a daring attack on a Korvil ship that results in their rescue. The events this sets into motion will change the frontier of the galaxy for generations to come....

Already bought next kindle version to READ

if anything, the narration by Mark Boyett is better than in the first book. At this time the Audible version of the 3rd & 4th books is not available. I really enjoyed “Spheres of Influence,” & was actually reading the start of #3 while listening to the end here. It worked! Makes me feel smarter in my old age. By Rick Lightbody March 24, ‘21.

An enjoyable continuation

I found this book well written and fun, if I had a complaint it would be that the author recaps the story a lot (a little too much).

A great follow up book

Having read all of the books of this series a few years ago, l was looking forward to downloading the audio book as well. I have enjoyed it, but like a few other series that I love. I think having two people reading the words would have been a good thing. l recommend the book and the series. lt was a shame that we have lost the author, who was called to join out in space before his time.

Simon is not dead!

This not really a review more of a bonus! I almost didn’t start this book because I was so mad/sad that the main character was killed at the end of the first book. I have only listen to the first few chapters but so far it’s good and I’m glad started it

Let the Drums of war begin to beat

This is an interesting series with a good bridge into the next book that shows us the realistic problems that could happen should such a scenario come to pass

Loved both books

Loved both the story and Mark Boyett is one of my favorite narrators.
This looks to be a good multi-book space opera...
Come on Audible -- I am waiting on the next two books...

bit sexist

first book I loved this book is way of course from the last book.also the fact everyone in a position of power is a women and every villain is a man .there are of course men in this but they are very much shown to be under a women's heel and all men have to agree with the women or are proved wrong or are the bad guys..in days of promoting equlity this book is way off the mark
