Fast-paced, fun characters, alien starships, civil wars, and an 'everyday Joe' protagonist who just so happens to be an ex-military badass... "meat and potatoes" scifi at its best. Blast of a read!
I had no idea this was an indie when I downloaded it... Well done.
Easy to follow in spite of all of the jargon/acronyms which are ubiquitous in government speak. Once the author established his world, everything was clearly explained and easy to follow throughout the story.
Maybe spend a little more time on character development and dislodge, and a little less on world building. That would help to flesh out the characters a bit beyond name, rank, serial numbers, etc.
I'd change the narrator for the next book. While this gentlemen was wonderfully clear and articulate, he was all but devoid of character inflection and dramatic effect which really hindered the overall experience. To his credit, I think he'd do really well in non-fiction, but not here.
