Publisher's Summary

A triumvirate of Veklocks, emissaries of the Tsargit, the alliance governing body, negotiates with Harbour, the Pyrean envoy, about critical projects the Pyreans need. But it's possible that the Veklocks ask for too much in return.

The Veklocks require the Pyreans to explore the extent of the Colony's usurpation of domes. The Colony is composed of two insectoid species, the grays and the reds. They're aggressive three- and five-meter long insectoids with venomous pincers that live for the expansion of their race. The Pyreans already lost one member of their team on their first exploration and are hesitant to meet the Colony again, unless they're better prepared.

Harbour and Jessie, her advisor, have an opportunity to demand a high price from the Tsargit through their negotiations with the Veklocks. But will it be worth the risk to their team to bring back the information the council demands?

Great books, narrator is much improved

I had previously insulted the narrator of these books, but I am enjoying her in this book and am looking forward to her future narrations.

Stunning!

Another stunning story as well as performance! I am going to take the advice given at the beginning, and begin the Silver Ships series because I want to be ready as soon as the next Pyreans novels hits the market. And thanks for the last sentence in Veklocks. It made my day!

Good story narration seems rushed

I must admit that I haven’t listened to any other works of Nicole Poole except the Pyreans series. The other books in the series were great but this one seemed robotic at many points in the story. Almost like editing used her narration from other story’s or it was generated from a computer. The story is solid and I can’t wait for the next story.

The story began well but declined

I liked the beginning and the writing was compelling but the story became too gynocentric almost all the male characters either died or were demoted including the aliens.

Getting Weak

Not horrible but not up to the start of this series. Reads like an adequate YA story. Don't bother if you can't suspend your belief in reality.
