Deep in blackest space, the Drasin have watched humanity’s journey to the stars—and determined that a species as barbaric as ours has no place in the cosmos.
The wreckage of the starship Odyssey, once Earth’s greatest guardian, lies strewn across New York City. Abandoned by all but its captain, Odyssey’s sacrifice covered the withdrawal of countless troops as the Drasin assault ravaged the planet. When Captain Eric Weston finally emerges from the rubble, impossibly alive thanks to the mysterious “Gaia,” he knows with the Drasin it’s kill or be killed.
But not all of the heavens have proven hostile. The Priminae have felt the full brunt of Drasin aggression on their own home world, and they won’t leave humanity to face annihilation alone. Together with what’s left of the crews of the Odyssey and other starships, they race to join Weston and his group of Earth-bound survivors for a desperate last stand.
The final battle of the Drasin War brings bestselling author Evan Currie’s Odyssey One series to its shattering conclusion.

I enjoyed the first three volumes of this series, however, now with the fourth one, the first half of the book is almost unreadable, continuous street fighting, nothing else. There is a lot of swearing in the book, over 20 f... words, over 30 sh... etc. The story is very weak. For example, throughout the Odyssey Book 3 - Homeworld, we read about the mysterious IMPERIAL people, the DESTROYER DEMIGOD. Close the end of the story the destroyer Commander Ivanth decides to stay and watch "until the drones have eliminated the main world"... One would expect to hear again in this volume about those enigmatic people who brought the Drasin to this part of our galaxy and who are obviously observing everything - but NOTHING at all. To me it looks as if the book was written by somebody else... I don't understand that so many people are giving 4 or even 5 stars out of 5.
OUT OF THE BLACK: ODYSSEY ONE BOOK 4
As I always do..or do not do...I am not going to get into the names of characters, little of the plot and so on as that is just not my way. The author does that in his blurb so you can read that if you want to know more about the characters and the plot.
I will just say simply that this offering continues the story line very well and leaves me wanting more...even after 4 installments read. I can see this going on for something before I can say that the story has been told! To me..its that good.
This is not a stand alone read and you must read the previous 3 to fully appreciate this story and its characters.
After the world war that ended humanities appetite for war, the Confederation sent its flagship “Odyssey” to the stars on a mission, a mission that started an event that takes them to the worlds of powerful new lifeforms that threaten humanities existence. The...
Before you pick up this book, please recognize it is a continuation of a series: you need to read the first book in the series titled Into the Black (Odyssey One, Book 1) [Remastered Edition](just click on the hyperlink on the book's name to be taken to the Kindle version of book one of the series).
Overall this is a good installment to the series but, without having a spoiler, it did seem to drag quite a bit and at the 35% mark on my Kindle I was questioning if I wanted to continue reading it because it was just one agonizingly slow land-based battle with foot soldiers vs. anything really resembling science fiction or the previous installments of the series. However, I'm glad I stayed with it as the action slowly picked up steam and then really accelerated to a nice ending. An ending which, despite what we thought when reading this was supposed to...
