Publisher's Summary

Deep in blackest space, the Drasin have watched humanity's journey to the stars - and determined that a species as barbaric as ours has no place in the cosmos.
The wreckage of the starship Odyssey, once Earth's greatest guardian, lies strewn across New York City. Abandoned by all but its captain, Odyssey's sacrifice covered the withdrawal of countless troops as the Drasin assault ravaged the planet. When Captain Eric Weston finally emerges from the rubble, impossibly alive thanks to the mysterious "Gaia", he knows with the Drasin it's kill or be killed.
But not all of the heavens have proven hostile. The Priminae have felt the full brunt of Drasin aggression on their own home world, and they won't leave humanity to face annihilation alone. Together with what's left of the crews of the Odyssey and other starships, they race to join Weston and his group of Earth-bound survivors for a desperate last stand.
The final battle of the Drasin War brings bestselling author Evan Currie's Odyssey One series to its shattering conclusion.

Oh dear - where did it all go wrong?

Would you try another book written by Evan Currie or narrated by David deVries?

I'm really not sure - I'd have to read the reviews first


Who might you have cast as narrator instead of David deVries?

Benjamin L. Darcie - he set the tone for the whole series in the first three audio books, which was completely changed by David deVries. It's a bit like suddenly changing Gandalf from Ian McKellen to John Wayne in the final film - nothing wrong with the people, just not correct for the story.


You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I'm afraid not, it's one of the few times I've actually stopped and abandoned a story. As well as the narration we also find our hero captain is suddenly part of the "Die Hard" cast-offs in an Gears of War. Really bad.


Any additional comments?

A real shame - this was an excellent series until now.
