This is book 14 of the series. In the last book, a scout ship with a jump drive fell into Jung hands. Captain Nathan Scout and the Aurora must get the jump drive back or destroy it. They end up taking on a Jung battleship in an attempt to obtain or destroy the scout ship.
The Ghatazhak play a key role in this book and Jessica and Commander Telis are at odds with each other. Jessica is also upset as her brother was the Captain of the scout ship that was taken by the Jung.
The Pentaurus Cluster is having problems because of the murder of Prince Casimir and the starting of a civil war. What is to happen to the Alliance and all the help, supplies, people that the Pentaurus Cluster has sent to Earth now that leader is dead. We have two new characters coming forward. Captain Suvan Navarro of the Avendahl who is protecting Princess Deliza. Princess Deliza has taken over from her father and is honoring the arrangements with the Alliance. Deliza comes to Earth to help and is redesigning the Falcon into the Super Falcon. She is a better engineer than her father. All her life she grew up working on his Falcon.
Jessica had escaped with a reporter and her cameraman and they are preparing a broadcast telling the truth about the Jung and the Alliance. The Admiral hopes this will turn worlds against the Jung and they will overthrow them. Of course, this book ends in a cliff-hanger.
Jeffrey Kafer does an excellent job narrating the series.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Could have been time better spent if it didn't start to seem like this story is going to go on forever.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
What ending? Overall I've enjoyed the series...BUT...like all of these space military series this story has no apparent "ending" in sight. Don't get me wrong...the stories are good but at some point the loose ends need to be tied up. With "The Weak and the Innocent" I started losing interest when I realized that the initial battle to start the book was a continuation of the same battle at the end of book 13 and it still takes up a full 3rd of the entire running time of the book.
What three words best describe Jeffrey Kafer’s voice?
I thoroughly enjoy Jeffrey Kafer's narration and hope he continues to voice many works in the future.
Was Frontiers Saga Series #14: The Weak and the Innocent worth the listening time?
Of all books in the series I found it to be the least engaging for me.
Any additional comments?
Endless stories tend to eventually get tiring. Why not have a complete "story thread" run it's course over...say...3 books (remember when there were trilogies?). Then do a different story arc in the same universe with the same or different characters involved in another trilogy. Since I'm currently following several of these L-O-N-G story arcs I find myself reluctant to get involved in any other series for fear that I'll die of old age before finding out how the story ends. Too may authors seem to be relying on these "cash cow" series and it's getting incredible difficult to find a GOOD stand-alone sci-fi book. Just my 2 cents worth.
