I normally dont buy books this short. but i was on my phone and didnt have an time. so i took this from the audible list. its was a good story i am continuing the series even thought the books are short. the narrator is decent i just dont like some of his voices. the story is pretty good but i dont feel some of the friendships and depth of the relationships that he alludes to which i blame for the book being short. but lets get to the good. the story moves along and is a good base, author does not forget how long it takes to get places and he does not overlook some technology. so yeah not a first pick but a good pick
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.
It really would be in my opinion a 3 1/2 but i think that rating on audible would keep some one from trying this book. its a good book. but they get into things like the press, and politics and tends to be a bit dry, English author. but the story and the drive of the book and you gotta love the captain and his real deamon of alcohol.
I like this narrator allot. i have heard several of his books and he never seems to share a voice between them. i never say oh ya thats that character from this other book with him. one of the few narrators i can do that with.
The story is good and i want to know what happens an i will listen to the next one. but it may get pushed back for more favorable authors. I prefer a fast paced book, i am not a hardcore read me the serial number sci fi fan. i like it fast pace action pact hero driven book. but the story will make me keep coming back, because the hero here gets in a spot and i really want to know what happens and i like him. if he wouldn't tell me so much about marine procedure and why and don't of everything he does. oh and he repeats some of the same things to.
Solid Narrator, i could identify each character by his voice. he lead questions to questions and statements to statements i was never confused ny the meaning.
I thought this was a really good fast pace book. The politics of whats going on were not dragged out. the physics of light speed were not dragged out. in fact they were on the fringe with realistic believable problems. I though author didn't dwell on any individual thing or character. it was pleasant and fast pace. but i need to know what happens next!
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.
