It was the concept of this book that originality drew me to it. However, there is very little contained in this book that actually deals with the premise. The entire book is composed of two space battles with a tiny bit of plot stuck between them and a brief epilogue stuck on the end. The characters in this book are flat and the author only bothers to write a back story for one of them. I would have really enjoyed this story if it had more story and less pew-pew.
I like business and sci-fi books.
No, the book goes through in detail how technology of space combat could work - but it utterly fails to engage. Characters are flat out boring and you simply don't care if they die or live to the next page.
More depth to the characters
it suprises - but is very uneven.
This novel is less about plot and more about endless explanations of how things work in the Star Carrier Universe. The action of the story is often interrupted by very long digressions into the science behind the technology to the point of being pedantic.
Since we know this is the first book in a series, perhaps it would have been better for the author to write an introductory chapter or two to explain the science, then get down to telling the story. Unfortunately, after stripping away the discourses the story is fairly weak, and in spite of its setting far in Earth's future, it really sounds like an old US military yarn.
The story did not interest me enough to consider listening to any additional books in the series.
I have downloaded alot of wonderful books from audible and then there is this one. Save your money, save your credits save your time. Do not order this book it is the worst mess I have ever heard. Audible reps if you are reading this I want a credit back for this mess. Well this is about as much as I can put on paper without reverting to more colorful words. Would I buy another book from Ian Douglas NO. Nick Sullivan yes he has alot of talent, and an excelent voice, sorry he had to read this aloud.
The only redeeming qualities of this book was it did not leave a stain on my MP3 after I removed it.
I love mystery and thriller genre books. I am a complete Audible addict!
I couldn't get into this book at all. I was so bored that I just had to turn it off after the first chapter. Narration was monotone and that didn't help matters.
