Publisher's Summary

The Inhibitors were designed to eliminate any life-form reaching a certain level of intelligence - and they've targeted humanity. War veteran Clavain and a ragtag group of refugees have fled into hiding. Their leadership is faltering, and their situation is growing more desperate. But their little colony has just received an unexpected visitor: an avenging angel with the power to lead mankind to safety - or draw down its darkest enemy. And as she leads them to an apparently insignificant moon light-years away, it begins to dawn on Clavain and his companions that to beat one enemy, it may be necessary to forge an alliance with something much worse.

Too much left to the imagination

All three books do a great job at starting plot lines and describing minute details of the world, but in the end they all fizzle out. The reader is left to extrapolate the story from the established trajectory for themselves far too many times.

John Lee's narration is, however, somewhat improved over the previous 2 books.

Great start awful endings

I have listened to this entire series, and whilst the worlds and characters are well visualised, The author spends a vast amount of time describing walking and sludge yet skips over intense and pivotal battles and key plot climaxes. So despite a promising start it lacks an ending or closure. You are much better off with Peter Hamilton if your tastes run to space operas
