    In an instant the world changed for Lieutenant General Michael O'Neal. His beloved Corps of the last remaining ACS destroyed beneath the guns of the Fleet, his staff shot before his eyes, arrested on the charge of war crimes, he faces a short, one-sided trial, a trip to the Fleet Penal Facility and a bullet to the back of the head while trying to "escape".

    Colin says: "Nice to see Michael O'Neal back, and his daughters"
    "Probably the best book of the Aldenata series"

    Have you listened to any of Marc Vietor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Marc is awesome. His work continues to amaze me, and this was no exception.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    When the kinetic bombardment and the surprise tank landing came out of nowhere to attack the enemy world, I actually yelled "Yeah!!!" out loud in my car.


    Any additional comments?

    So many story lines coming together here. So much action and so many characters focusing their attention on saving the world. This is an incredible book. Obviously, there is another book coming after this one, and I absolutely cannot wait for it.

    Story

    The invaders are coming; the Posleen, a seemingly unstoppable horde who have conquered one star system after another, literally feeding on their conquests. Earth's dubious allies, the Darhel, have given the humans a number of highly-advanced technological devices, including a process for rejuvenating the aged, including trained and proven soldiers who otherwise would be too old to fight. Rejuvenation may give a critical edge, since to survive, the Earth must use every resource at hand.

    William says: "The German Perspective"
    "Good but not as compelling as the main storyline"

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Watch on the Rhine?

    When the tanks were playing cat-and-mouse games with the Posleen landers.


    What does Marc Vietor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Pronounciation of the characters' names, voice inflection and voice characterizations. Fantastic work by Marc.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Killing the old SS soldier in the tank "Anna."


    Any additional comments?

    I found the generalization of the storyline a little bit harder to "get in to" than the depiction of the stories in the other books. I found myself somewhat engaged with different characters but not as deep as I would have liked.

    What did you love best about Journey to the Center of the Earth?

    The story was pretty engrosing; however, I do feel that it ends rather abruptly.


    What does Simon Prebble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great voice inflection and believeable alternative voices for the different characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no
