Publisher's Summary

The war is over, but the struggle continues. Tyler Barron and his spacers have set out into the unknown, deep into the Badlands, seeking to discover the empire’s old tech and the secrets of its tortured history before Gaston Villieneuve and the resurgent Union can beat them to it. The White Fleet is a vast force, powerful, and crewed by the toughest veterans from the war. 

Barron and his people know the future of the Confederation, even its survival, depends on recovering the scientific secrets of the empire before the enemy can do the same. Barron and his people push far beyond the Confederation’s borders to space untraveled since the Cataclysm. 

They are seeking the past, its secrets, its knowledge…but they will find a present that they never expected, a new and terrible danger, one that threatens not only the White Fleet, but the Confederation itself…even the entire Rim.

Depressing

I gave it a 5 as a sort of celebration because it is the last one in the series I am going to read. Doom & gloom, death & destruction. The good guys never get a break. I am going to try and find an upbeat story like "War & Peace" by Tolstoy :-).

New name on an old story

This series has been excellent up until this book. Don’t get me wrong, this book is a great book. I just wish that Jay Allan had come up with a different story line for this book. Spoiler alert!! So you want to explore our past where known civilization resides to gain new tech... great! But after that it turns a little redundant to his crimson worlds story. New enemy with ships that are way way more powerful than the “White Fleet”, a plague that was engineered to kill humanity, ships are now unwilling to go home so they don’t lead the new enemy to their home planets, an intelligence officer that takes over the whole union. While there is enough difference between the two storylines to make this series enjoyable, there are just WAY TOO MANY similarities. Oh, did I mention a fighter pilot that is so good they put him in charge of all fighters that just happens to be the one weakness to this new enemy?!? Come on Jay!! Put that masterful mind to work and give us another series that blows our minds, without using ideas from the other series’ you’ve made.

Dreary and repetitive

I loved the first couple of books, but it’s getting old. The Confederation is in dire straits until the last 15 minutes of the book and they pull a rabbit out of the hat.

Tiresome...

Seems like Jay Allan is entering the path of David Weber--polemics, anti-politics, bad narratives around failing societies and corrupt governments. Weber lost his mojo years ago because of this and Allan is trending in that direction. In this installment, we listen to shallow characters proclaim their superiority over everyone else with ridiculous declarations. It's tiresome. There is a new, good plot line developing if Allan can get back to his craft. Right now, his writing shows exhaustion and fatigue, not energy and creativity. I've never been a big fan of Kafer as a narrator. In this book, he makes things worse by over-emphasizing the stupid statements.If you are a fan of the series, buy it, tolerate it, and hope for better in the next installment.

Extraordinary!

I had thought this series had shallow character development and was growing repetitive and boring in terms of space battle dybamics (despite having great dialogue and a strong plot) However, the author has managed to turn that around! this book shows how far he has come as a writer! I would like to see more strategy in the battles (but that's just a personal preference). Now that I know the series and have cone to respect and grow fond of it, I would definitely recommend it.

Loved it

Great continuation. I'm a bit simple when it comes to stories so I am not going to leave a long winded review, but I did really enjoy the story so far.

Really good book with 1 bad part.

I dont know if it was the preformer or the writer but there is a part in the book that cuts to a scene that doesnt flow right like a paragraph was skipped to give background to the situation this book with all others would of had 4 or 5 if that didnt happen. It distracted me while listening where i replayed it 3 times to make sure. overall the book is really great and will continue to follow the series.

The Journey Continues

This is one of those soap operas that tends to get your blood boiling, if only because the 'Intelligence' service/operatives act so 'unintelligently'. For the Head of Intelligence to leave himself wide open the way he did.... I rest my case. I feel that the continuing war between the Confeds and the Union is distracting from what could be a really good follow-on series. I have to question the decision of the Confeds, having lost millions of its people in the war, many through war crimes, would readily give up all victory to an invader and be so naive to believe all will be well, knowing full well the lengths they have already gone to in the past.
