Revenge of the Ancients by Jay Allan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The revelation of humanities genesis and the history of the rise and fall of the Imperium spur the remnants of the trapped fleet to seek out the world that was prepared for the Ancients last hope. The Regents fleets continue to attack in system after system each resulting in loss of ships, lives and resources. The promise of technology beyond that of even the Imperium is too strong a siren call so Admiral Compton makes a bold strategic decision to buy time for the majority of the fleet but what they don't know is that plans are already under way to wipe out the humans once and for all and then the Regent can focus on finding a way back to Earth.
This series of novels continues apace with action and drama that will delight a fan of this subset of science fiction, yes it is more of the same but at this point in the Crimson Worlds series this is what you want to be reading. Courage above and beyond by individuals and ships from across the human sphere all bound together under the threat of the Regent with epic battles and sacrifices allowing for when that one opportunity arrives a blow could be struck.
