    This forth audiobook of the series felt like 10 hours of waist This whole audiobook could have done in three hours, it could have been added to the last book of the series, it kind of felt like that the author tried to push an extra audiobook on us for no other reason but profit I hope that I m wrong because now that I m moving to the last audiobook of this series I m hoping for a great ending the famous Jay Allan kind of ending which give you a total satisfaction I must recommend this book i This forth audiobook of the series felt like 10 hours of waist This whole audiobook could have done in three hours, it could have been added to the last book of the series, it kind of felt like that the author tried to push an extra audiobook on us for no other reason but profit I hope that I m wrong because now that I m moving to the last audiobook of this series I m hoping for a great ending the famous Jay Allan kind of ending which give you a total satisfaction I must recommend this book if you already finished the first 3 books of this series but I recommend with reservations

    With the defeat of the First Imperium Regent, the remaining survivors of Fleet Admiral Terrance Compton s fleet had thought they would at last be at peace They had settled on a beautiful world Earth Two that was once a safe haven for the Ancients The Ancients were the race of pre humans who were ultimately responsible for the First Imperium and the Regent Through their complacency, they had allowed the Regent too much control until it decided it didn t need the humans anySo it wiped With the defeat of the First Imperium Regent, the remaining survivors of Fleet Admiral Terrance Compton s fleet had thought they would at last be at peace They had settled on a beautiful world Earth Two that was once a safe haven for the Ancients The Ancients were the race of pre humans who were ultimately responsible for the First Imperium and the Regent Through their complacency, they had allowed the Regent too much control until it decided it didn t need the humans anySo it wiped them out Admiral Compton s people had found a way to successfully destroy the Regent and any remaining rogue First Imperium squadrons They then settled on Earth Two and began to build a new civilization.Thirty years have passed since the death of Fleet Admiral Terrance Compton Thirty years of relative peace except for the now internal struggles of a fledgling society that seems bent on destroying itself Former Admiral Max Harmon was elected the first President of this new society and he had maintained control for all those thirty years gradually giving upandof his powers to the Assembly Now he has decided that he needs to step down Some of the policies he has enacted were not received favorably and he has lost a lot of backing He s decided to have free elections in six months He does not expect to be re elected.Unfortunately, Earth Two is heading down the same path as the original Earth civilization There are three distinct groups now, each with their own agenda The NBs or Natural Borns are the original Pilgrims of this society They were the original crew that survived the struggle to get here They and their children are the majority, but not enough to support a planet wide population on their own So, they chose to begin cloning new humans These clones or Tanks due to their method of birth were created quickly and then eased the burden of providing new bodies for industrial purposes and military purposes Earth Two realized that the galaxy was a dangerous place so they didn t let their space fleet just die away They modernized new ships to operate with smaller crews, but still be very, very lethal starships Then the Tanks got hit with a strange virus or Plague It only affected a small percentage of them, but when it did, the diagnosis was also fatal This plague did not effect NBs The third group of humans were also created by Dr Cutter and Dr Ana Zhukov These beings were unique in that they were the product of gene splicing using genetic material of the Ancients and that of Dr Cutter and other scientist of the original crew These people grew rapidly just like the clones and soon were joining the rest of the population of Earth Two They had one failing though and that was their inability to procreate Initially, this set them apart from the rest of humanity on Earth Two and they were given the term Mules which over time became their accepted designation Fortunately for the Mules , they were superior to NBs or the Tanks Their intellectual and physical abilities were much greater than either of those two groups and they did not hide that fact NBs and to some extent the Tanks were afraid of these super humans, so much so that they placed a Prohibition on any further creation beyond the original 116 Mules.So, each of these groups has some grievances against the current government President Max Harmon has tried to be fair to all which has failed Now he has decided that it s someone else s turn to govern, but he doesn t know who can hold this world together Then, one of the Earth Two scout ships has found something that changes everything on Earth Two The First Imperium might not have been completely destroyed Thirty years of peace for Earth Two is about to end.Good story and it doesn t end here I m not sure why the author didn t just start another series although there is a lot of references to the characters and actions of the original refugees Some of those warriors are still around I guess through genetic enhancements, aging has been pushed back so people like Admiral Erika West can still be on active duty even though she s well into her sixties Same for Max Harmon and many other who you ll still read about in this book There s even some references to the fact that Fleet Admiral Compton could still be alive today if he hadn t been killed in the last battle Anyway, good book and looking forward to the next one in this series

    The Architects of Ignorance One of my favorite and scariest episodes of the 1963 sci fi series, The Outer Limits, was The Architects of Fear A group of elite scientists concluded that the nations of the world needed a common enemy to unite them and hopefully prevent a world war Well, those scientists created a biological enemy from space from one of their fellow comrades In Jay Allan s novel, The enemy is not biological but a highly technical machine, produced by man Of course the plots The Architects of Ignorance One of my favorite and scariest episodes of the 1963 sci fi series, The Outer Limits, was The Architects of Fear A group of elite scientists concluded that the nations of the world needed a common enemy to unite them and hopefully prevent a world war Well, those scientists created a biological enemy from space from one of their fellow comrades In Jay Allan s novel, The enemy is not biological but a highly technical machine, produced by man Of course the plots are different but the premise remains the same in order to bring different types of humans together it takes a threat from beyond the stars to hopefully bring humanity together Can it really work, was the question asked by the tv episode Allan who was transformed into the alien My fellow readers, we ll just have to wait and see Mr Allen s answer to this question Nuff said

    A great story to continue on.I enjoyed the continued story line of the lost fleet, left behind in the Imperium realm You get to know all the new people of Earth II and feel the tension of the different factions as the fight among themselves But the true trouble is yet to be found

    Another great read Jay does something most authors can t or won t His books are as rich in detail at the end of the book as they are at the beginning To do that in a long series is even rarer The other great thing is his refusal to use cliches and god leaps, i.e Then a miracle occurs to further his plots and story lines.

    Vengeance Has ComeIn the previous books, humans challenged the Artificial Intelligence known as the Regent which they created Although the Regent was destroyed, unknown to the humans, the Regent had provided for such an outcome It s name is Vengeance and it was designed to eliminate all surviving humans These books are well written with amazing details and insight.

    A good twist to an old storylineI liked the direction this thread has taken and I look forward to where it will take us next The genetic engineering is a cool new technology being introduced that gives us some Spock type of moments that made this fresh and not just a rehash of old stories.

    Book 4 refugeesBook 4 was a fun read and had errors throughout The overall plot was developed well and the characters have new problems to solve The time gap was different and introduced new characters for book 4 I overall liked the book, but it has a lot of repetitive information given I look forward to book 5 and to see how it develops.
