I was weiry of this title bought it strickly on reviews and that i had a 10 hour drive ahead of me and needed a book to get me through it. im a fan of military sci fi but im often turned off by the endless model numbers and specs some authors like to give. i would compare this to star wars books but better. they build up the characters in a way that you like them and stay interested in the development and take through a story that makes it so you can wait for the next book.
This book is perfect for me, i read while i fall asleep or drive. so its hard for me to get into a overly technical sic fi book. so this was perfect for me. good story and good characters. decent struggle and the underlying plot of the book gets introduced in a very cool way. does leave a bit of a cliff hanger.
Well after reading the second book that was very face paced (which i personally prefer) this book goes back in time as we just start to get out into the universe. i enjoyed it, it was a bit slow for me, but i stuck with it and I'm now on to the next book in the series.
Well it took me a few chapters to like the book. But I'm glad i stuck with it. I'm now reading the whole series. its a good verse. and if you like these kind of books you will enjoy the book.
I enjoy the author. Narrator was good. Felt the story lacked the fun of the kris longknife novels. But I will try the next book and see if the Vicky series takes its own.
The book didn't grab me right off. In fact I listen to 2 other books. It's ranks as a standby series for me. A book between others. But in going to start the second one see where it goes.
This series is well though out. And a different marine takes charge of this book bug she does a great job. He is writing very strong and believable women which is great. One of my favorite narrators as well.
A slot of times in multi book series some things get old. Like the jump drive blue white washing over the bridge. The author played with that finally in this book. And the story is staying somewhat fresh. When the book ended my first thought was "how long till the next one". And it has left me wondering where this is going.
To be honest i never ever get a book with less the 10 hours. but i was desperate and bought it on my phone. and i couldn't be happier. ow the second book gave me the 10 hours and the story i was looking for. if you like dirty, under the gun fast pace sic fi like i do you should love this series
I like david weber if i read his books. his honorverse narrator sends me up a wall. so when i saw this i jumped on it. but this is dragged out history lesson. if you love the honor verse you love it I'm sure. well written and narrator. just honestly not for me. only reason i ut 3 stars is its not fair to go any lower just because its not my type of book. Still a good book if you like extreme detail. but i didn't finish it,
This book seems to be a first for the author. not as smooth as i would like, good action, good characters. character have a good sense of right and wrong and sacrifice. a good little love story in there. just what you think a person might be in a future service.
