Story: Long drawn out story about the other syndicate world military....uninteresting.
Narrator: Very hard to figure out who is talking, because he uses the same voice for most characters.
Also, the book ends right before something interesting is about to happen...
I will not be getting the next installment if it ever comes out.
The narrator of this audiobook is terrible - I can't tell which character is speaking because there are no differences in voice tone/pitch/inflection.
Other than that, it is a well read book with a good story.
The narrator and Audible Frontiers! In at least three previous "Lost Fleet" and "Beyond the Frontier" audiobooks CEO Gwen Iceni was pronounced the same. Along comes the "Tarnished Knight" series and suddenly Iceni is pronounced "I-cen-I." Made me so angry that I missed the next few minutes of dialog every time Vietor said "I-cen-I." The producers couldn't maintain a consistancy in the way names are pronounced. Now I don't want to continue the book. The producers also allowed Marc Vietor to be much to "aggressive" in his reading. That's my take, anyway. I wanted to like this book but I'll skip the audio now and get it on my Kindle.
Christian Rummel was so good that it will be hard to replace him.
This is an enjoyable companion series to Campbell's equally enjoyable Lost Fleet series. I would probably read the Lost Fleet first, but you don't have to. Characters are pretty well developed, and there are interesting plot twists. The fleet actions are not as interesting in this series, but that is made up for by other elements. Nothing amazing, but good solid story and interesting action.
70+, been reading SF since 1953. Vision is going so have switched to Audible.
This series is just as good if not better then when I first heard it. I know this is a work of fiction but the insights into human behavior is very thought provoking.
this book had a very slow terrible story line. there was no lead in to understanding the characters and the storyline really had no basis the narrator was pretty good but I will never listen to Orr Reed another book by this author.
This audio book would sound so much better and be easier to follow sometimes if the narrator used different voices for the different characters.
Sometimes I didn't know who was suppose to be speaking because he didn't change a voice even between male and female.
Because of that I couldn't even tell when a whole scene change between different people in different places.
