They hunt us. They bomb our worlds for target practice.
A star cluster in the constellation of Orion rotates once every thousand years. Those who rule there have an ancient tradition: When each cycle ends, they train their fleets by spilling the blood of lesser beings.
The enemy fleets are coming again. In response, the Rebel Worlds gather their starships to face the terrifying threat, and this time humanity is asked to stand with them.
The last time they considered Earth, Vikings in longboats were raiding English coastlines. Today, we're less primitive. Today, we're a target.
One man is chosen to command Earth's single ship in the Rebel Fleet. When the war breaks out, Leo Blake must win it...or die trying.
"Classic B. V. Larson. This book grabs you by the plasma cannon and won't let go. Fast adventure, fast action - and I loved the space-battles!" - S. Arthur

Just good spoiler free review

I was sceptical when I got this, I didn't think it was possible for B V to pull off another good space based book.

I was wrong, I don't know how but I loved every minute of it.

Mark's performance is stellar again, I'm so impressed with his craft.

More please. No holidays or family time just keep writing until you die.

Thanks so much again.

Another B.V. Larson masterpiece

I Love the way Larson writes and Mark Boyett is also one of the best Narrators.

Formulaic but entertaining

Most of the books that I've read or listened to, by BV Larson, have the same characters reworked and tweaked along with very similar plot lines. This book was no different and some of the content was absolutely ludicrous. That said I really enjoyed it. It's fun and I think it's meant to be fun.

The narrator move things along well and it was quite easy to discern between the different characters voices.

So if you're looking for an action oriented pulpy science-fiction spin... without much need for deep thought, I recommend this book. If you want serious science fiction or something a little deeper in terms of space opera, you might look elsewhere. However , I'm hoping for more in the series.

Swarm series all over again

Larson is getting in abut by of a rut. He excels at world building but the overall premise is just too similar. Aliens enlisting us to fight their war is the central theme of two other series that I know of that he has written. The book was entertaining but I couldn't shake the feeling I had been here before.
Side note: he has utterly no depth to female characters. They only want to be arm candy for some overly testosterone juiced protagonist. It gets tiresome.
