im a big fan of Karen Traviss, from the SW galaxy to the gears books. when i listen to the first one i had no idea that it was a video game. and you wouldnt know it by listen to the books. fast action, creative foes, good characters and the narrator does a great job. the fourth book is due early next year i hope audible is on top of this one becuase i cant wait.
Honestly i like that we are watching this verse come together. before they were all polished glass and rich. and that they had to work for it. allot of the tech from the Kris Longknife series is not there yet.
Another reviewer compared to lost fleet. It's a little less science then that if possible. Straight sci fi story. Good with out the long draw on of how long it takes to travel 1000000 miles across a planetary system ect ect that some authored love to tell you about for endless hours. I call it sci fi light which is what I like. So I enjoyed the heck out of the book. A little short for a credit is the only negative I can give this book. Narrator did a decent job. Not sure why others didn't like him.
Star wars, David weber, john ringo
Good bad editing
This is a good face pace story. For once earth has a leg up. A first book by the Author, and you can tell,. It's not annoying you can just tell. But it has a pace that keeps going. Not for the hard core who want to hear about the hard science behind ftl travel, or how they overcome challenges of astronavigation. But light sci fi at its better!
i like getting several stories for the same character
no but i really like her
Well i went to my first con after this series. this is several short stories. and i really liked the format. i always wonder about the stories or characters that never make a whole book that are on the scrap pile. and this is one of those i think. but the stories are fun and go different places. now this has a big christian undertone because the main character is christian, but he really does hid research and puts her to the test. so that in of its self is fun. so don't let that part of the store keep you from the book. it did for me until i was on a long drive and needed something and john ringo has always been a hit for me, so i went for it and he still has not let me down yet!
The history of it front he longknife universe.
Love this narrator
This story is a little different for the author and not one i found that good. i like the book but the enemy in this story didn't do it for me. how ever there is enough of the story that i still enjoyed the book.
Fun, bit different, good new characters
Pretty much all MS books in the series
I like all the long knifes and a new character we meet in this book.
I find this a good series MS always writes a good book and this universe is always on par. i have yet to read or listen to one of his books i don't like. he has finally gotten away from the tag line of those d*mn longkifes, it gets real old. so i was happy to only hear it once or twice in this book. And seems that Kris gets off on here own allot more in this book.
yes, good solid story good characters, good narrator
No and i really like him, I'm going to search him and see if that turns me on to some new authors.
If you are familiar with the Kris Longknife universe, then your gonna love this. its about her great grandparents, and what they did to get there start and they are good fun characters that are not what you think. Haven't read a kris longknife book? its okay these are independant books set in the same universe and may be fun to start with this series!
Well i loved the first 2. this one was still really good and well worth getting. i just thought it seemed to finish the series. and that is sad for such a fun and entertaining series. i will look for more from the author and the narrator who does a wonderful job.
Wow, as i said in the first review im a bid sci fi fan but really don't like post apocalyptic books. but this is just a great read/listen fun for all ages, narrator is awesome. and the story is amazing. i thought it was going to be predictable and it wasn't, new challenges, new friends and old friends making it the reason you read and stay dedicated to a series. everything i want in a book fun and entertaining and lets my imagination run with the ideas that the author puts in front of me.
As big as a sic fi buf that i am, i dont like post apocalyptic books at all. but with the movie and all the hype i had to check it out. and i am glad that i did. narrator did an amazing job. the story is great. full of action, full of character development, and good solid ideas, and challenges for the character. some stuff that i thought would be predictable was not and it was outright fun and entertaining. all that i ask of a book!
