    Only the most desperate colonists dare to make a new home on Hellhole. Reeling from a recent asteroid impact, tortured with horrific storms, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, and churning volcanic eruptions, the planet is a dumping ground for undesirables, misfits, and charlatans…but also a haven for dreamers and independent pioneers. Against all odds, an exiled general named Adolphus has turned Hellhole into a place of real opportunity for the desperate colonists who call the planet their home.

    Dan says: "Very Good Series Intro"
    "19 hours to disappointment"
    Overall

    I have purchased and listened to 6 or 7 multi-book novels but I have made sure that all of the books in the series are available as I don't like to be left hanging, waiting months or even years for the next book in the series.

    In this case Audible put an interesting looking book with a plot line that seemed complete on its list without any warning that it concludes up in the air with odds and ends of plot flapping in the breeze. Had I any warning I would have saved my credit for a different book.

    Would you try another book from W. E. B. Griffin and/or Michael Russotto?

    WEB Griffin can and does tell a good story. However poor narration trumps a good story. Yes to Griffin but NO to the narrator


    What did you like best about this story?

    Lots of well integrated facts and details along with a fine cast of characters make the story in grossing and believable.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    the main problem Mr. Russotto had was reading with such a stolid and deliberate cadence that the only was I could compensate was to listen to this book at 1.5X. While this was not a real cure, it did help.
