Publisher's Summary

The Invasion of the Highborn.  

The mysterious enemy has come, and Tyler Barron and his allies prepare for the final battle, the desperate struggle to save the Rim. Barron’s spacers are ready to fight, as always, but this time they know little of the enemy, and they face technology far beyond their own.  

They will fight to the end if necessary, battle with their final breaths to hold back the deadly enemy. They will stand alongside their old enemies, the Hegemony, united for one massive battle, one all out effort to stop the Highborn.  

But, even as they prepare to make a stand, they will learn exactly what they are facing, who the Highborn truly are and where they came from…and they will discover that nothing is truly as they’d believed. From the legends of the old empire to the desperate struggle for the future, everything is about to change.  

The Last Stand is book 14 of the Blood on the Stars series. Blood on the Stars will continue with book 15, Empire's Ashes.

overall pretty much a let down

normally I like these books and I've enjoyed the series but this book was pretty much just to let down with nothing really resolved and I felt like characters were put into situations just because Jay had nothing else to talk about

The same story again.

Read one other earlier books again. They are better written and the theme of the superman warrior does not get smarter.

Wash, rinse, repeat

At least one quarter of the story repeats previous books. It is easy to tell the author is just trying to stretch out the story to sell more books.

WOW

Can't wait for the follow up. Continues to surprise all the way to the finish. Both exhilarating and heart wrenching at the same time. Can they save humanity? What of the other enemies?

Good Story, a little repetitive.

As always, the story was mostly written well and left me with some surprises.

The only thing that got to me would be some repetitive phrasing with worries or concerns. Mix it up.

needs abrigement

The storyline is great, though the book could probably be cut by at least 1/3 if you remove all the distraught commentary like "Whatever it takes!". We get it... all 1,478 times.

over and over

This soap opera of so fare 14 books is really only 10 books. The rest is an endless repetition of the same storys again and again. Dont listen to this series continusly, break it upp into a book now and then or i bet you will find it tidius.

I liked the book, the Peformance was realy good,
The any problem is the wait time between books, a year between books is too long. I would like to see more book alot fast.

Time to wrap it up.

Love this series. Kafer is the best narrator but these author’s ruin great series by trying to cash in too long. These books are predictable and are the same story with more evil opponents. This book already suggests the next book’s enemy. I’m not sure what the author will do next however. In the first series the fighter pilots were forced to release their torpedos within an unheard of 5,000 meters. In successive books the distances narrowed to 500 meters in the Last Stand. What is next Kamikazi? This is symbolic of the series.

All or Nothing

The final conflict (doubtful), and its going to be messy.

I had a feeling all would not be as it seemed at the end; after all, why get rid of one character that brings so much to the table. However, I do not think I will like the way this is going if it strings out too much.

My one gripe is the repetitiveness throughout, which I tended to fast forward. Without this, you could probably cut the book by a third.

Disappointing!! (Spoilers)

Literally can’t put it any other way. After a long wait, I expected something new and I was given the same story I’ve listened to over and over again. I found the whole story to jumbled, to actually visualise what was going on. My main complaints are

• Randomly finding information out of knowhere “Some old Locker” on the “New” Adversary.

• I found out that there’s a tie in to another series which I can’t read now because I know the ending to it which has infuriated me to no end.

• Characters from the past books seem to just have been forgotten which I find disgusting considering the roles they play.

• The same outcome that has happened time and time again. No matter what the main characters do which make you wonder why you listened to it in the first place.

• Part of the details of the story where mentioned and then forgot such as Mine fields/orbital defences which where mention and that was that.

• I find it ridiculous the a paper version of the books are realised months a had of the audiobook version. I understand that they have to be narrated but at the same time why can’t their releases be joined.

I honestly love Blood on the Stars and I can’t expr my disappointment enough.
