Earth's armed forces have stopped the Lanky advance and chased their ships out of the solar system, but for CDC officer Andrew Grayson, the war feels anything but won. On Mars, the grinding duty of flushing out the twenty-meter-tall alien invaders from their burrows underground is wearing down troops and equipment at an alarming rate. And for the remaining extrasolar colonies, the threat of a Lanky attack is ever present.
Earth's game changer? New advanced ships and weapons, designed to hunt and kill Lankies and place humanity's militaries on equal footing with their formidable foes. Andrew and his wife, Halley, both now burdened with command responsibilities and in charge of more lives than just their own, are once again in humanity's vanguard as they prepare for this new phase in the war. But the Lankies have their own agenda...and in war, the enemy doesn't usually wait until you are prepared. As Andrew is once again plunged into the chaos and violence of war with an unyielding species, he is forced to confront the toll this endless conflict is taking on them all, and the high price of survival...at any cost.

Is this the lastbook in thr series?
Points of Impact review
The story line has become very familiar by now, and a return to New Svalbard seems to be fitting, and underlined by the cracks appearing in Andrew Grayson's mental attitude as we the readers must by now realize something has got to change.
With the appearance of Earth's latest answer to the Lankies' unremitting advance through Earth's colony worlds and the multifarious details of tbe way technical warfare is going, I felt the story suffered from an excess of this type of desciption. Marko Kloos excels when writing his battle lines with absorbing and exciting detail, though the build up in this tale is beginning to loose the edge we experienced during the battle for Mars he told so well in the previous story. I enjoyed reading this one though and the conclusions at the end have a note of nostalga to them.

Meeting up with old friends that you actually miss
I feel like I have experienced many elements of this story in previous Frontline novels in some shape or form however, unlike other novels where characters and plot lines can get stale/tedious I enjoyed this book. It was interesting revisiting many of the planets and characters from the previous books after the passage of time and under different circumstances. Overall, I find that I am still interested in finding out how Andrew and Halley‘s story will end, and would really enjoy other stories in the Frontlines universe (e.g. Lazarus brigade, and the future).

Not enough combat.
This was the slowest book of his I listened to. I understand the first book being slow to action because you have to introduce the characters but this is book six! I would have like to have the action start before the last 4 chapters of the book. Hopefully the seventh book has more combat action in it.
