    Mankind's first alien contact tears into Earth: Projectiles launched from Jupiter's moon, Ganymede, vaporize whole cities. Under siege, humanity gambles on one desperate counterstrike. In a spacecraft scavenged from scraps and armed with Vietnam-era weapons, foot soldiers like 18-year-old Jason Wander-orphans that no one will miss-must dare man's first interplanetary voyage and invade Ganymede. They have one chance to attack, one ship to attack with. Their failure is our extinction.

    Story

    The story is simple with very little technical babble. So if your looking for deep characters and a complex storyline go elsewhere.

    You're going to get simple narratives and lots of action which is exactly what I was looking for.

    Only negative is that the narrator took a bit of getting used to (it's the first time I've used the increase narration speed option). Once I settled into his style I really began to enjoy it.

    Baron Lucius Giovanni, Captain of the battleship War Shrike, finds himself without a home or nation, his ship heavily damaged, and crew in bad shape. The odds against their personal survival are slim. The time of humanity has come to a close. The great nations have all fallen, either to the encroaching alien threats or to internal fighting and civil war. The aliens who seek to supplant humanity, however, have not taken one thing into account: Lucius Giovanni.

    Story

    I found the overall story entertaining but not very satisfying. It appeared the author was skipping over details that would have made it more interesting, to an extent that makes it feel like an abridged book.

    As for the narrator, while not a terrible performance, the characters didn't sound believable and it was difficult to become immersed in the story.

    If the author would go back and flesh out his story and use a more experienced narrator, I'd be a happy man.
