Well written, exceptionally read, interesting story with a perfect amount of humor. I highly recommend.
This book marked a couple of developments for me:
1) I'm tired of the constant marital back-and-forth between Geary & Desjani. Ditto for the jealousy between Desjani and Rione, and pretty much anything to do with Desjani. Unfortunately, she's in just about every scene, standing over Geary's shoulder and being just about the most annoying character in recent memory.
2) Christian Rummel's reading is a tour-de-force of nicely-employed accents to help distinguish characters, as usual. However, does he *have* to use the most inarticulate and stupid-sounding accents every time there's an NCO speaking? Every time he broke into Vinny Barbarino as the Chief Gianini character, it completely broke me out of the story.
Despite those two annoyances, I still enjoyed the book overall. I guess I'll just be taking a break before I grab another, or maybe I'll switch back to print for the next one.
I will assume that you, like me, have read this entire series, so I will just say that it continues to satisfy with creative situations and interesting characters. I have found that each book is as listenable as the last, not too much to ask of a series, but enough.
I highly suggest that anyone who enjoys a good space opera sample this author.
The author is right up there with the best of them snd is improving with every book.
At the very least-keep your eyes on him and his works.
Audible rendition of the book is just as good.
I have always enjoyed space sagas, from "Ender's Game" to "Armor", the idea of three dimensional tactics have been fascinating to me. This series is becoming an obsession of mine and I hope for more to come.
