Planet by planet, galaxy by galaxy, the inhabited universe has fallen to the alien Xul. Now only one obstacle stands between them and total domination: the warriors of a resilient race the world-devourers nearly annihilated centuries ago.

A power vast, ancient, and terrifying, the mighty Xul have lost track of the insignificant humans hundreds of years after devastating their home world, which has enabled the United Star Marines to operate unnoticed and unhindered. A near-autonomous intergalactic policing force, they battle in defense of an Earth they may not live to see again.

Now, following the trail of a vanished 24th-century transport, they are journeying through an unexplored stargate to the edge of an unknown galaxy many light years from their sun. For the last, best, and only chance to defeat the tyrants of the universe may at long last be at hand. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Only read the first few chapters of this book before tossing it. Take cliche marine stereotypes, pair with space suits, and throw in a few elements from old spy thrillers, particularly borderline sexism. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thomas | 6/29/2012

    " Very interesting book. Fairly well written. Takes a few chapters to get involved in the story line, but once you get past that, it's a rather pleasant read. "

    " Excellent author in the Genre (Marines in space). Interesting underlying premise: Xenophobic aliens that routinely wipe out intelligent live reaching a certain technological level. "

    " I like military scifi and this was pretty good. It was a bit slow to get to the action, but good enough for me to read the rest.... "

    " Another great book by Ian Douglas. And a great continuation of the previous two series. The military action is spot on and the political games are just as fun to read. His universe has always been a great place to explore and will be picking up the next two books as soon as I can. "

    " Picks-up 800 years after the previous trilogies.

    Also a good read (lots of action and interesting speculation on how technology will affect humanity), but feels more recycled than the second trilogy. "
