Publisher's Summary

Humanity has reached out into the stars - and found a ruthless enemy.

It took us 200 years to establish 15 colonies on the closest habitable planets to Earth. It took the Ghosts only 20 years to destroy them. 

Navy pilot Colm Mackenzie is no stranger to the Ghosts. He has witnessed firsthand the mayhem and tragedy they leave in their wake. No one knows where they came from or how they travel or what they want. They know only one thing for sure: Ghosts leave no survivors.

When Colm is fired from the navy, the disgraced pilot accepts a position with an alien government to build a ring of defense in the Kuiper Belt. The goal: prevent the Ghosts from reaching Earth and utterly demolishing humanity.

All hope seems lost when the Ghosts infiltrate the Belt. But Colm may have stumbled upon a secret that could change the course of the war. The key is buried in his own past....

Good story

It’s not perfect, but it’s quite original and fun.

My one nit to pick in the narration is the mistaking of delta-v for “delta 5” (god knows what he thought delta 5 was).

Didn't care for it

love fantasy books but I was bored by this. Narrator's Irish or Scottish accent made the book hard to follow.

Good listen

No real complaints other than the narrator's tendency to pronounce delta v which is change in velocity as delta 5. The story was pretty neat and kept me listening going down the road which honestly my only concern.

This book is a roller coaster

This book starts rely strong but then starts to slow way down. It got so slow I almost put it down but I’m glad I didn’t. The ending has me ready for the next book!

A slow build

He doesn't know he's a mage for most of the book. So for a while I was wondering if he really was going to do any magic. Glad I stuck with it and the narration is awesome!
