    The end is near - or is it a new beginning?

    The running theme of these novels "Mankind nearly gets wiped out - but survives and gets some serious revenge" is a good one - though I get the feeling the aggressors must be really stupid to treat humans so blithly (sort of like how you're set up to win against the bad guys in a video game - the cards are stacked in your favor). This culmination of the story is great - up to the final battle. The swapping from current timeline to something in the past is a tad confusing and I understand why he wrote it the way he did, it just made for a bit of trouble keeping things clear in my head. It works - which is suprising - and it explains the final crushing blow. However, you're still left wondering who "We Who Are" really are in the end. I almost felt sorry for the bad guys at the very end.
    If you've read the series "The Lost Fleet" (Paul Campbell) you'll like this series. If you haven't read any of the books by Ian Douglas, start with "Star Corps" - the Legacy Series. That's where the story really begins. I wished I'd read it starting from there and not halfway through the series.

    This is the exciting finish to the Inheritance trilogy

    Across the galaxy, all hell has exploded with many colonial planets and other orbital habitats in jeopardy; billions could die. The Galactive Associative has tried to maintain the peace and prevent internal hostilities from destroying much of humanity, but the leaders recognize they failed especially after the Xul Incursion in 4004. One year later they call for desperate measures to prevent the beginning of the end as rebels are springing up seemingly everywhere. They awaken General Garroway and his Star Marines from eight and a half centuries of deliberate cybernetic-hibernation sleep; a super squad who chose cybernation in 3152 in case they were ever needed again.

    However, the almost millennia induced coma has left Garroway and his United States Marine Corps warriors unprepared for a society in which the rules of engagement they adhered to are considered obsolete by self interested politicians who have plans on manipulating the reanimated marines for personnel power gain as the common good is superseded. Still Garroway and his corps begin the counterattack only to realize the greater peril is not from within or even just the invincible Xul, though great threats to the well being of mankind. A hazard so insidious the past, present and future are simultaneously in danger of being eradicated by the unbeatable Xul and the Great Annihilator whose plan is eliminate any trace that humanity ever lived or lives.

    This is the exciting finish to the Inheritance trilogy with the third book (see STAR STRIKE and GALACTIC CORPS) of the third saga (see the novels of the Heritage trilogy and the Legacy Trilogy). The story line is fast-paced and resolves much of what has occurred in the last twelve centuries; answering the key questions in an exhilarating way. Garroway and his unit are terrific, but Ian Douglas continues to show his scorn of politicians as once again cowardly politicos get in the way of the heroic marines so long term fans will finish the saga with the thoughts of well written and very entertaining, but a nagging sense of deja vu.
