Humanity is on the ropes, and after years of fighting a two-front war with losing odds, so is Commonwealth Defense Corps officer Andrew Grayson. He dreams of dropping out of the service one day, alongside his pilot girlfriend, but as warfare consumes entire planets and conditions on Earth deteriorate, he wonders if there will be anywhere left for them to go.
After surviving a disastrous spaceborne assault, Grayson is reassigned to a ship bound for a distant colony - and packed with malcontents and troublemakers. His most dangerous battle has just begun.
In this sequel to the best-selling Terms of Enlistment, a weary soldier must fight to prevent the downfall of his species...or bear witness to humanity’s last, fleeting breaths.

This is getting serious...
Any audiobook lives on its performance, and Luke Daniels has a rock solid delivery. This is no radioplay, obviously, but every character has his or her own personality.
Still following Andrew Grayson on a journey through our dystopic future this book seriously subverts expectations. While the last book only covered issues of morality on the sidelines and by proxy Marko Kloos takes of the kiddie gloves in this one. The whole book is a strong statement on its own, and takes the issue of lawful orders directly by the horns. This installment of frontlines didn't drastically change the tone, but it's certainly getting darker and edgier. Even the stakes are rising. The decisions of our main character start affecting the lifes of tens of thousands of people.
This novel continues expanding the world Marko Kloos started showing us in Lines of Departure. Rock solid military science-fiction meets some thorny issues of morality and the result ist just a great read.
