They know that a new Regent has self activated with one goal in mind, kill all humans in the galaxy. While the humans have vastly improved their technology and are closer to military parity with the forces of the Regent, they have yet to develop the production of antimatter. They know that they are still over powered by the forces of the Regent computer mind and it’s superior technology.
The Regent knows all of the failures of its predecessor and it devises a trap to draw the humans into battle with the bait being the antimatter production world. The humans can’t resist. The source of antimatter is the power that fuels the ship’s, power generation and bombs of the Regent’s forces. It would be a game changer if they could destroy the planet. Can they beat the Regent’s massive war fleet and gain a critical edge in the war for survival….
This is a good book but it is not without problems. The storyline features many plots, twists and turns. The two major plot lines are the political and social issues of Earth 2 and the military war that they all face battling the Regent to avoid destruction. The military part of the story is 5 star and I enjoyed it. That is why I read the books written by Jay Allan. I have purchased and read all of his books and he has become one of my favorite Sci-Fi authors.
I did not like the political and social side of the story at all. It was at best a 3 star. I stopped reading the book multiple times because of this part of the story line. I did not enjoy this part of the book. It was repetitious and uninteresting to me. I read for enjoyment and that part of the story was drudgery for me to read. There were too many self reflections and flashbacks that I’d didn’t care about or felt that they added to the storyline. I believe that this was just story filler to reach a certain page count and as a Sci-Fi reader I did not enjoy that part of the story at all.
I also found several spelling errors and the use of a wrong word that detracted from the story.
Overall I rate the book at 4 star but it barely made this rating. I wish Jay would reduce the political and social aspects of his writing and focus more on the military battle aspects of his stories. That is where he excels.
If you were a fan of the Crimson Worlds series as well as the Crimson Worlds Refugees series, I believe you will like this new installment to the continuing saga. It started off a little slow and repetitive for me as the author was having some of the characters reminisce a bit but the last 30% or so picked up the pace. Based upon the end notes of the book, the next installment will wrap this series up to a conclusion.
I picked this up for $2.99 in the Kindle version: if you have enjoyed previous episodes of the Crimson Worlds series, you will certainly get more than $2.99 worth of entertainment value out of this one.

Storm of Vengeance continues the strong storytelling that Jay Allan is known for and extends on the existing characters we've come to know though the previous novels as well as world building with new characters and a growing chaotic threat to humanity in this part of the galaxy. Overall an enjoyable read that will satisfy any fan of the Crimson Worlds series of novels but obviously the pay off is being invested in the series as a whole rather than a standalone scifi tale.
Of course this reader got hooked when he read the first novel in the series and followed along with many thousands more as the series spun off in different directions, the commitment has been worth it.
