    "Awesome Sci-fi series"

    I am writing this because i think it is one of the best series books out there. Mike Shepherd always tells a good action packed story. This one has a female lead and she has some great friends that are willing to die for her and what she stands for. The narrator Dina Pearlman is also one of the best !!
    ALWAYS REMEMBER TO READ THE BOOKS IN ORDER.

    "Loved it"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Would recommend, especially to ex-military. The military attitudes remind me of old times.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Favorite character was Kris Longknife- never gave up even when it seemed hopeless.


    Which character – as performed by Dina Pearlman – was your favorite?

    Kris Longknife because of the personality that comes through the telling of the story.


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

    Sure, it looks hopeless now... but wait


    Any additional comments?

    Could have done without the excessive lovey dovey stuff between Jack and Kris, other than that...outstanding.

    "Ode to the first two Amendments"

    Courtesy of Lost Art Audiobook Review

    Audacious can be read as a cautionary tale for any society that considers itself evolved and safe simply because it is technologically advanced. The major conflict of New Eden, without a doubt, is its lack of suffrage for all citizens, but the reason why living on New Eden is unsafe boils down to a lack of the first two amendments. There is a lack of free press, and the powerful pay dearly to keep the media ignorant of any crimes. The second is the right to firearms. New Eden is a “safe” society, where no one, not even the military, should have deadly weapons. The problem is that in New Eden, like in most of our cities, those who operate outside the law already have weapons, leaving the law abiding vulnerable.

    Audacious goes back to the wonderful military feel of the original Mutineer. There is an inspiring scene where Kris is invited by the marines to jog with them in the morning, but after she is detained by local authorities, a bunch of marines, including one who is injured, join to stand by her. Kris realizes at that moment that, even though she’s Navy, she has been adopted by Corps. Kris’s spine straightens when she realizes that they’re willing to die for her and, in return, she’s willing to die for them. I also enjoyed the scene toward the end of the audiobook when after rendering honors to fallen Marines, Kris and her men leave New Eden to a futuristic rendition of the Marine Corps Hymn.

    This audiobook also gives us a lot more on Abby. We meet her mother, sister, and niece, and get to see the neighborhood on New Eden where she grew up. It explains a lot about her motivation and character, and she even gets a possible love interest in this audiobook.

    On Narration:
    Dina Pearlman’s reading of Audacious reminded me of her reading of Deserter. She was back to a faster pace, the authoritative tone, and the solemnity necessary for war and battle. I miss her Tommy accent, but there were no Irish or Lorna Dune people.

    "Didn't get far enough to review the story"

    The short description of this book made me very interested. Unfortunately, I didn't get far enough into it to actually review the story. I give it 3 stars because Audible makes me review it before I can write a review, and because I don't want to penalize the author when it's not his fault this production is awful.

    Because it was bundled in a 2 for 1 credit, I ended up getting book 5 before I'd ever heard of book 1, but that isn't what bothers me. What bothers me is this narrator. She is focused so hard on pronouncing her t's and d's and p's that she has completely lost the natural rhythm of a sentence. I found myself analyzing how a sentence -should- have been spoken and losing the next few pieces of the book. I cannot under any circumstances recommend this book. I got stuck in my car for 3 1/2 hours to drive 5 miles and couldn't even bring myself to turn on this book... If it weren't a freebie, I would ask for a refund.
