Publisher's Summary

Here are two action-packed novels from David Drake's "Hammer's Slammers" series, which set the standard for military science fiction.

In At Any Price, Col. Alois Hammer's indomitable Slammers are called in to support human colonists against a native uprising in this novel-length adventure. But even though the natives' off-world weapons are no match for the Slammers - their ability to teleport gives them a frightening advantage!

In Rolling Hot, the battle-crazed troop of recruits and vets, led by Captain Ranson, must cover 300 miles of hostile enemy territory.

    "SciFi combat, with real world grit"

    This is solid SciFi combat with real world grit. It brings real world combat to a futuristic world. The combat might be too real for some, however, it gives it the ring of dark reality that is well worth the read.

    "Confusing start...."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Still on the fence about recommending this book... The beginning of any series is always tricky, due to having to lay down the back story of premiss of the story... It seemed to jump around a little bit, and I at first had trouble following the plot.

    I like Military Sci-Fi, regular military and military history. I like sickening amounts of technical details about weapons and vehicles of combat. I love tactics and survival/scavaging. The Bolo! series is by far my favorite series. Keith L aumer, William H. Keith, and David Weber probably my favorite writters for the series. I also love Day by Day Armageddon trililogy.

    Story
    "Great read for military sci-fi lovers!"
    If you could sum up At Any Price & Rolling Hot in three words, what would they be?

    Excellent read with lots of technical details! As a former military Field Artilleryman, Drake uses a TON of military "lingo" that is accurate and means something to anyone who has been in the combat arms. I love the technical detail, the fact he isnt afraid to get gruesome with his details. All of these books are great! Recommend!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of the characters where my favorite and developed very well.


    What about Stefan Rudnicki’s performance did you like?

    Excellent as always!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Hammer: Rolling Hot

    Story
    "You can smell the cordite"
    Where does At Any Price & Rolling Hot rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Rudnicki is brilliant. I was introduced to him in a series by Greg Benford. He is amazingly talented. This book is definitely in my top 10.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Drake is wonderful at creating complete characters in a war zone. They are all quite complete and sympathetic characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It was the final scene. I won't spoil it.


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

    Yes

    "Phenomenal"

    I read these stories in their respective anthologies many years ago. It is amazing to hear them read aloud, though, and to be able to simply feel the emotions of the charcters wash over you without the distraction of input from your eyes.

    "Poor quality package detracts from great story"
    What disappointed you about At Any Price & Rolling Hot?

    Audible charges 25 bucks for this poorly packaged download. The artwork is low res and nearly unreadable and it's impossible to add a sharper version since the file is locked. Also, the ID3 tagging is not there, so I have to add that by hand.

    To charge as much as Audible does for such low quality shows that they're not interested in giving fair value to the consumer.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of At Any Price & Rolling Hot?

    Both stories are well written and exciting. Drake's vivid writing makes you *smell* the burned iridium and plastic fumes after the weapons have fired their charges.


    What about Stefan Rudnicki’s performance did you like?

    I've listened to Stefan's readings Ender's Game, the Empire of Man series, etc. and enjoy his deep voice and range of emotions.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Satisfaction with the story and reader. Disappointment with the poor quality files.

    "More RCN and Less Hammertime"

    Drake is a good writer and these stories are also well written. But, they are just too one dimensional. The stories are about combat. The endings are good, but 5 hours of combat is too much for 30 minutes of philosophy.
