Its like the Paksennarion series on steriods! I started with this book as I thought the first one might drag. Now I have to decide if I listen to book 1 now or after the end of the series. This is a fast paced book with lots of action. A cross between Paksennarion and Vada. A story of a young lady who is learning her magical abilities while defending her king and country as a Green Rider. A typical war story with a young hero coming into her own.
In short, GET IT! Darn it Audible, sometimes you do not need 15 words to convey a point.
Old mans war was great, lots of action, laughs, etc..., and it included a section with the Ghost Brigade where they were an elite fighting force that kicked but! In Ghost Brigade the only thing they did was talk their way thru the whole book with one exception, a short un-impressive small fight.
The story holds your attention. But if your expecting action or anything like Old Man's War to continue where it left off, Save your money! Good for a five dollar sale.
Get these in order. Awesome story and action. What a series! This series will be a hit with all genres. I highly recomend this series to all. This is the first time I have downloaded an entire series after hearing the first two books. Worth twice the price.
Finally a serries where the main charictors arent whimps crying about there lot in life. A great story with relatable charictors fighting and living lives we can relate to. lots of action with a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I listened to the first two books nearly non-stop and for the first time ever just downloaded the rest ot the entire series.
I should have read the reviews! It gets two stars only because the story line would have made a great book. The problem is, it was one very long lecture. After nearly every statement or question there would be 10 to 20 minutes of lecture of how this atom affects that one or how this muscle works with this blood vessell, etc...
Pass on this one!!!
No more electricity? I can see it. Can we survive if suddenly were are thrown back in time to where we have to plant food by hand and fight off the gangs and thugs with swards and crossbows? I found myself in the struggle with them fighting off evil people and protecting the good ones. I enjoyed this and look forward to the next one.
Book 2. This one continues right from where book 1 left off. Most of the book is space battles and ground combat. Must reed book 1, into the black, before this one and if you liked it you will like this one.
I very much enjoyed this and look forward to the rest of the series. It feels like listening to the Honnor Harrington series. If your into space battles you wont go wrong with this one. It's easy to keep up with the different people and I found myself identifying with and rooting for many of them rather than one or two.
Hard to listen to due to the very fast narration but still worth it if your into the series. This book is not up to the standards of the others in this series but after I got used to the speed freek reading it, I got into the story and was not to dissapointed. Loved the first 3 books which made this one a book not to miss as it continued the saga. It's worth a credit if your into the series.
I was let down by this one, it was ok but not up the standards of the first two. The extra narrators killed this book and made it hard to listen to.
