Piloted by a six-year-old girl, the godlike Skalm guards the Districts of TASC. Her family is long dead. Her adopted father is a synthetic copy of an alien, her nanny an artificial mind connected via subspace to every part of the globe, feeding the young girl information, finding prey to satiate her growing thirst.
But the young girl is an innocent, a victim, one of millions the war has already claimed. Her innocence has been sacrificed by a man with singular purpose: a man who will stop at nothing in order to prepare Earth for the coming conflict.
The armada is approaching, its far-off engines now bright as stars in the night sky. They mean to kill us. They have the power to do so. And as oblivion's maw opens up to engulf us, we brace ourselves for battle.
We will fight to the last. Live or die, we will leave a scar upon our attackers that will last an age, even if we ourselves do not.

Perry Rhodan meets the 6 Million Dollar Man
... Part 3 : If you ever think it could not get worse, it can.
This book feels like he had a contract to fill, to turn in three sequels.
It is hard to bear,
Very slow beginning.. the universe he draws, it still lacks depth.
The whole book seems to be written to be long and to climax in the ultimate fight to end this.
There are some interesting sidelines, but he seems not to be able to not let them feel like loose ends.
Althoug one special sideline gives this story some of the feeling of SciFi and that part IS good, in the end it reveals itself as the key to the whole story line.
And WHEN this starts to work out, he gets blurry, makes a massive error, just to keep them characters alive and no one will believe it.
Now the real drop shows off, the book STOPS, simply dead end.
Three lines to conclude it all.
Nothing about possible future developments, what might become of his characters, he COULD have opened a door for a further sequel, but he simply slammed it SHUT.
I am sitting here contemplating how I shall describe how I feel about this.
Where the two previous sequels had had their share of fun to me, this one, I don't know, i AM disapointed.
Generally: Mr Moss tried to hop on the train, which was so intellegently started by Cixin Liu, but he fell off the cab.
The reader, Mr Bray, does his acustomed good job.

Not as good as the first two books, unfortunately
Narrator excellent as always, unfortunately the story lacks the suspense of the first two books. The time line covered in the book is far greater and therefore the details are lacking.
It was at times a struggle to keep going
