The hour is grim for the Empire, which has split into opposing sides. Civil War rages between Queen Kalila Akira and Steward Caerwyn Martel. As all Imperial forces are dragged into the conflict, threatening to destroy the once mighty Imperial fleet, enemies abroad have their sights set on the juicy, and ever more defenseless, human worlds. Rotham invasion seems imminent and unstoppable.
Summers and the Nighthawk race against Blackmoth and Tristan, each hoping to reach Zander first, and get to his stockpile of isotome weapons. Meanwhile Raidan has underhanded plans.
Calvin and his team venture into Rotham space to spy on the enemy. It is vital that they collect intelligence on the Rotham fleet and get it back to the queen so she can stop any Rotham invasion. But, unbeknownst to them, one member of the team is a traitor, and has put them all in grave danger.
In the deepest regions of Forbidden Space, whispers abound that the Dread Fleet has awoken, charged with the purpose of purging the galaxy, and bringing to pass the Final Darkness.

The series just keeps getting more intense! I'm loving it. The characters are still consistent and the trials they are going though are spiralling out of control. Its a great series one I am happy to follow and pay for.
So you can skip 3-5 pages at a time quite often and miss absolutely NOTHING except characters that do nothing but feel sorry for themselves, complain about there lot in life, and basically whine that the universe is unfair it adds nothing to the story other then dragging it out and ruining the pace of the story I am very disappointed in this book I though perhaps by the 5th book the author would decide to actually get on with the story.
