Publisher's Summary

The gloves have finally come off.

The Tokomak, the unquestioned masters of the galaxy, have dispatched a massive fleet to crush the Solar Union - and the fledgling Galactic Alliance - before the human race and its alien allies can tear the galactic order asunder. Hundreds of thousands of starships under the command of an alien tactical genius, bent on exterminating the entire human race...the darkest hour is truly at hand.

Admiral Hoshiko Stuart has a plan. The Solar Union will dispatch a fleet of its own, with the objective of smashing the alien fleet before it reaches Sol.

But, as human technology clashes with alien treachery, experience, and sheer numbers, it becomes clear that there can be only one victor...and whoever loses will lose everything.

Amazing ambush scenes

I rate this series highly because it’s accurate, follows its own rules and Christopher has created some really great battles that keep you on the edge of your seat.
When Jeffrey reads these books, I feel I’m transported to a different world.
I really really really hope you continue this series as the universe you have created is straight out awesome.

Narration is a perpetual 1000 yd stare of dramatic

Love the storyline but physically cringe at the narration. Kafir should consider starting an emo folk band or narrating Edgar Alan Poe books.

“... and yet...”

Jeffrey’s overused and dramatization of “ and yet.....” space space space was really annoying throughout all of the books he narrated

It's the best I n the series so far.

the last one was the best in the series. But the tale the stotler went with bothered me. With the ultra xenophobic uktra conservative culture of the world today, these type of books that tend to glorify that ideology are just acting fuel to the flames.

Monotone

Unfortunately, Mr. Kafer failed to bring out or add depth to the characters and story. What I’ll remember is listening to 10 hours of monotone where every character sounds the same.

LONG RANG WAR,LONG RANGE LET DOWN

This book started out great but by the last book the author was tired and the story was even more tired. I wish he never would have even wasted his time or effort on this last book,what a waist of time and money.

A great continuation of an excellent series

I really enjoyed this book. It had all the classic elements; the human race fighting for it's survival against a numerical superior powerful race that already controlled most of the galaxy. Not only are the humans fighting the aliens, but two seasoned admirals lead their fleets against each in several nailbitting battles. I enjoyed the fact that over 2/3 of the book was devoted to the back and forth battles between the forces. If you like action, this book is a must read for you. I am looking forward to book 6.

This series is awesome and classic military sci-fi. The combination of Christopher Nuttall and Jeffrey Kafer is one of the best out there!
