The Earthlings close in on the Alien Scum that destroyed Earth, unaware there is a bigger menace stomping them from the other direction. The Empire continue to punch above their weight with nifty footwork but 400 pound gorillas don't need footwork to take your bananas.

Like two books rolled into one (Spoiler-free review)

This book ties up one storyline nicely while cracking another wide open, and drastically expands the scope of the universe I which these stories occur. However, neither of these plots will probably make much sense unless you've read the previous books in the series. Like the previous books (before they were professionally re-edited, that is), this one had a number of typographical and word errors, but far fewer than I remember in previous books

SciFi Space Opera Stomps Along

"Inheritance, Rise of the Empire Book 5," stomps along, continuing a decent storyline, hampered by an "awkward" writing style, lifeless narratives, and incompetent editing.

The escaped remains of humanity, have formed a federation-style Empire, far from Earth. Technologies, genetics, psychic abilities, alliances with alien races, alliance with distant human genetic cousins, and combat with dangerous foes all continue. The Empire is exponentially expanding in all area
