Description

The Kobani continue their offensives against the Krall, attacking production worlds and destroying or stealing ships from the Krall fleet, which the enemy needs to resupply their invasions. The Kobani create a multispecies settlement on Haven, a gentler habitable world near deadly Koban. They gain the trust and technological assistance of freed former Krall slave species, the Torki, Prada, and resurrected Raspani. Their ranks and Mind Tap learned skills are increased by spec ops recruits from Human Space.

Mirikami engineers an assault on the Krall base world, K1, in cooperation with a skeptical human navy by sharing new technology, revealing Kobani physical capabilities, and providing intelligence on new Krall invasion plans. Despite knowing the Kobani use illegal gene mods, the navy high command decides to hit the Krall first, with the help of their secretive, tough Kobani ally. After the attack a mauled Krall fleet still heavily outnumbers the navy, and the damaged human fleet withdraws.

A vengeful Krall warlord, the Kobani old nemesis Telour, summons an ancient Olt'kitapi ship that can shatter an entire planet. He has a devious plan for remote strikes that will initiate delayed deaths on multiple human worlds, all before a ship imbued with morality can learn it has been been duped. Telour wants the home world of humanity to see death approaching one world at a time.

Mirikami expected a strong Krall reaction but not this extreme. He scrambles to head off the inexorable destruction of multiple planets. Failing to save some worlds, he is the final hope for billions of people on others. The Kobani will need the strength and speed their genes provide plus luck to save humanity.

Book one: Koban; book two: Koban: The Mark of Koban; book three: Koban: Rise of the Kobani.

The Devil Wears Prada... But He Eats Raspani

'31 Hours and 26 Minutes of Superior SciFi ' pretty much sums up book 4--

It's an awesome addition to the series, well crafted with excellent world-building and character development, with just enough science to ground the series.

Now my Ort's on fire and my quantum tattoo's tingling in anticipation of book 5.
Unfortunately, my Raspani mind enhancer's on the fritz and that's why this review's de-vol-ving.... I now return to my baseline 'meat-animal' status....

Totally Captivating!

This book sucks you into another world and refuses to let go until you get to the end. This is one of the most pleasurable books I have listened to on audiobooks. The narration by Summerer is clear, concise and a real asset to the book. As far as the the story and writing by Bennett there are only two words that come to mind - World Class!

series is great

I would rate this top 100 book series in this genre. but as I want to be fair the super in the super men needs explaining more compared norms. however making the super kobani humans " human " so incredible and vivid that they are "humans with superpowers" not just supers in two dimensional sense. the charecters become alive and on a personal note I want a ripper companion !!

And aawwaaAAaayyy they WENNTTT!!!?! 😎 Whoo!!

And they are OFF! I only started this series in March and wow! Here it is only April 10th and I am starting Book 5.
I believe I mentioned in a previous review that this series is not going twist your brain into knots with all that deep, almost provable science and deep plot lines. It's just fun! And fast! Plausable beats provable every time, right? Mike Okuda from Star Trek (all of them, except TOS) once told me that if they come into a plot line they can't explain, it's ALWAYS Subspace Interference. This series is loaded Subspace Interference, and it is GREAT!!

10 Billion Stars!

WOW! I just finished Shattered Worlds this morning, and I still feel like I'm moving through space 5 hours later! This book is intense! It's a 31-1/2 hours audio experience of pure pulse pounding masterpiece. (I'm still processing what I want to say in a review, but frankly, I'm gobsmacked!) There were so many instances where I thought I knew what was going to happen, only to find myself ambushed by an even more spectacular plot twist. I cried, I laughed, I had two anxiety attacks. Not since John Varley, has a sci fi author taken me to an imaginary future filled with planets and creatures, that feel so real that they follow me into my dreams. Wow!

Ok. Give me a minute. First I have to catch my breath while I marvel at the genius that is Stephen W. Bennett. How does he do it? How did he write more than 106 listening hours of absolutely fantastic sci fi entertainment (that I've listened to so far!), and why isn't this series on the bestseller list!!!?

I get excited just thinking about all the sci fi geeks out there that haven't found this series yet, and how happy they will be!

Michael Eric Summerer, the narrator, is FANTASTIC. Scenes with multiple alien species joined together and exchanging ideas were narrated so well that it was incredible. Matching this author with this reader* was a brilliant move.

Wow. Ok. I need to go lay down for a minute. I'm already looking forward to listening to the whole series all over again.


*(Patrick Freeman, who was good, but not great, read book 1. Still a great listen!)

If you liked the previous books, this is for you!

As with the previous novels, the book is fun, but not particularly deep. I don't know why I like these books so much! The writing is adequate, not amazing, and the narration is just sufficient. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's a fun story, and I cannot wait for the next installment. If you liked the other books. You'll probably like thus one as well.
