Summary

It's been nearly 200 years since the collapse of the Confederacy, the last government to claim humanity's colonies. So when signals come in revealing lost human colonies that could shift the power balance, the race is on between the Caliphate ships and a small team of scientists and mercenaries. But what awaits them all is a threat far beyond the scope of any human government.

Great Original Sci-Fi

Andrew Swann has put together a great story with great characters that is VERY reminiscent of the table top miniatures game Infinity while at the same time being very much its own, unique story. The narration by Kevin Pariseau is also excellent . . . although someone should tell him not to mimic static noise . . . especially at serious moments of dramatic tension . . . I feel I cannot maintain my willing suspension of disbelief in the face of the same sound I used to make when playing Star Wars in the back yard as a child :)

Not his earlier moreau work

Any additional comments?

Loved Swann's earlier moreau trilogy / quartet. They all very much had the hard-boiled detective, noir feel to them.

This is a foray into a more conventional type of science fiction, and lacks the pared down and direct plotting of his earlier work. Felt sprawling and unfocused to me, and the characters were less engaging. I didn't see Swann's earlier works on audible. Do yourself a favor and get them in paperback, or on a kindle. They're well worth reading.
