The Greshian Empire has reached across the Alorian Galaxy, using its naval might to bring its enemies to their knees. Dead planets float in their wake as the empire fights to assert themselves as the supreme race. Ensign Brendle Quinn has spent five years loyally serving the Greshian Empire in their relentless quest to dominate the Alorian Galaxy. But as his ship decimates planet after planet, he finds his sympathies swinging towards their defeated enemies.
Sergeant Anki Paro, a Luthian Marine, has been anxiously awaiting the call to deploy. As the last line of defense against the crushing Greshian forces, she hopes the time has finally come where her world can stand against tyranny and protect the rest of the worlds in her sector of the Alorian Galaxy. As her path towards war draws near, Anki begins to notice a shift in balance as her society prepares itself for imminent destruction. Questions of misplaced loyalties lead her to wonder if the world she is trying to save has any real intentions of surviving. As Brendle and Anki's worlds collide, they find themselves in an unlikely alliance to try to stop the full might of the Greshian Empire before there's nothing left to fight for.

I found the story very difficult to get into. It took until about chapter 10 for me to settle into it. Quite frankly it was not to my taste though it did vastly improve during the last third of the story which I did enjoy. That is not to say other readers might really enjoy it. I think they probably will if they are more in tune with this sort of story.

Quite good but didn't catch my imagination all the way through that i thought it would.
Characters are quite appealing but i feel that there is something missing in the overall story or that perhaps we just haven't got there yet.
Narrator is quite good although i must admit i do usually prefer a male voice.
Overall the story is quite well written and works well if you like more of a story without lots of space battles. For me it didnt click but know that these stories can work quite well for a lot of people.
This book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review and as such is my own opinion.

When Anki, a Luthian Marine, and Brindle, a Greshian Ensign, worlds collide things in their worlds become very confusing from what they have grown up being told. But can they change things and will they save their people?
This is a wonderful military science fiction book/audio. This is a highly entertaining book, I had the audio version with voice actor Rebecca Sternberg, who does a awesome job bringing this world alive for the listener and making you feel as though you are there and part of the crew family. I really enjoyed this as a audio and can not wait for more.

This book had a slow start, but I enjoyed it overall. Reminiscent of Star Wars and numerous other sci-fi stories, it was an enjoyable read. The author is a good writer and his world-building and descriptions were very good.
The narrator spoke way too slowly for me, so I sped up my Kindle to 1.25x and enjoyed it much more. Since the book was written from 2 alternating perspectives, I think that the narration would have benefited from having two different people also.
I was given the opportunity to listen to this book through the author's newsletter and chose to review it.
