Summary

They must save themselves - or die trying.
John Perry was living peacefully on one of humanity's colonies - until he and his wife were offered an opportunity these ex-supersoldiers couldn't resist. To come out of retirement and lead a new frontier world.
However, once on the planet, they discover they've been betrayed. For this colony is a pawn in an interstellar game of war and diplomacy. Humanity's Colonial Union has pitched itself against a new, seemingly unstoppable alien alliance dedicated to ending all human colonization.
As this contest rages above, Perry struggles to keep his terrified colonists alive on the surface below - despite dangerous interstellar politics, violence and treachery. And the planet has yet to reveal its own fatal secrets.

Good story but even better world expansion

Political intrigue, interesting characters, surprising battles, this book has exactly what you want.
Even though the premise of the story seems to point to a boring story, especially after the previous books, the twists of the story deliver a surprisingly captivating story.

some of his Indian accents sound German,/horrific

I wish the narrator would not try to do accents. Hlois child female accents are sickening and the Indian accents so far off being accurate the narrator should not have evem tried to do his borderline offensive accents, it really detracts from the story
