I was weiry of this title bought it strickly on reviews and that i had a 10 hour drive ahead of me and needed a book to get me through it. im a fan of military sci fi but im often turned off by the endless model numbers and specs some authors like to give. i would compare this to star wars books but better. they build up the characters in a way that you like them and stay interested in the development and take through a story that makes it so you can wait for the next book.
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.
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!
