    Some feel the Lady, newly risen from centuries in thrall, stands between humankind and evil. Some feel she is evil itself. The hardbitten men of the Black Company take their pay and do what they must, burying their doubts with their dead - until the prophesy: The White Rose has been reborn, somewhere, to embody good once more. There must be a way for the Black Company to find her....

    "Hard to follow"
    Overall

    Might be a good book if read on the printed page. Hard to follow in this format, there seem to be no real transitions from place to another. The reader sounds good, but, you never know where one chapter ends and the next one begins.... Causes a little confusion.

    We colonized 700 planets. Humankind enjoyed the benefits of expansion room and the end of wars. We even disbanded our military. Then the Krall found us. The Krall have used thousands of years of combat to select the genes of the strongest and fastest warriors. They are a species determined to dominate the entire galaxy, through destruction and annihilation of every opponent.

    Koban is an uninhabited high-gravity planet with impossibly fast savage animals, which employ organic superconducting nerves. This deadly world is where the Krall tested humans for war capability.

    Where does Koban, Book 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would give it a 7 out of 10, but I also have a lot of great books.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Koban, Book 1?

    I would have to say it was first contact, then the landing on Koban.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was.... bad... really bad... almost a book killer. The story though, was good enough to power through. I just wanted to make a note here, while the narration was bad, don't skip this book, it really IS good.
