Publisher's Summary

Kate Richmond, former army ranger and ISS operative, has seen a lot in her life. Sabotage, espionage, cyber theft, and assassination missions have all played their parts in her journey to becoming a viper. Nothing surprises her much any more, not even a full-scale incursion of an alien race by the Merkiaari!

When a battle in the Border Zone leaves a pirate ship crippled, boarded by Alliance Marines, and reveals information that links Kate's brother with a dead viper and a bunch of Merkiaari corpses, it's safe to say that she's surprised. It's time for the most important mission of her life.

It's time to find her brother.

    Did you know you can put in a set of Ear-Buds, slap your Hearing Protectors over them, and Mow the lawn, Weed-Eat, etc, without your book being drowned out by engine noise? OR, you can just let the horses in the yard, and THEY'LL mow and weedeat (literally) FOR YOU!

    "books 1-4 good, book 5, made fun of God believers"

    book 1 through 4 were just fine. it is a bit heavy on references to classics the writer liked and to a love of coffee, but book 5 made fun, briefly, of those who believe in God and that really was unfortunate.

    "Great series, story and narration"

    Have read the first 4 books of this series 4 or 5 times, actually I don't have time to sit around reading so I was listening with several different readers. The narration of the Audible reader has been the best both in inflection and accuracy. Have found that other readers try to read with mechanical programs that often mispronounced many words which made following the story and plot hard as I was listening for the mistakes.

    "The amazing continues"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Operation Breakout to be better than the print version?

    I am not a reader, but the narration is amazing as is the story.


    What other book might you compare Operation Breakout to and why?

    I am new to this genre except for the Star Wars books. I love the Start Wars books, but this edges ahead.


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

    I listened to Mikael Naramore in Merkiaari Wars books 1-3 and this is just as amazing. He is in my best narrator list. I am thankful that Mikael Naramore narrated this series because he gets it and brings it home. I hope that he does all future Merkiaari Wars books. He also narrated book 4 and was amazing again. I have 55 hours with Mikael Naramore's voice and Mark E. Cooper's story and I want more.


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

    It made me laugh, cry, and feel many other emotions. I felt satisfied and wanting more at the same time. This is an awesome series.


    Any additional comments?

    Book: The character building, details of everything, but not in a boring way. There is an overarching plot, awesome subplots and lots of smaller stories. The tech info is great. Well thought out and written. Narration: Michael Naramore is an awesome narrator. From book to book you can tell the character by the voice even if that character hasn't been in the story for ages. Marc Thompson is the awesome Star Wars narrator and I think Michael Naramore that awesome. If books were rated like narcotics Mark E. Cooper and Mikael Naramore could be imprisoned. When listening to books 1-3, when I saw that there was only 10 hours left, I became sad that it was all most over. Then I found joy that Operation Breakout: Merkiaari Wars 4 was out. Got it and couldn't stop, but the end came before I knew it. It was like getting slapped without warning. Yes, I'm laying it on thick, but this series is wonderful. I want 10 more!

    "Bit of a filler"

    Not the best in the series.. concentrated on side stories a bit too much.
    Not so much about the main story line or the main protagonists..

    "This is the End!"

    I initially purchased the omnibus edition, 1-3, really got into it and enjoyed it immensely.

    Having just finished Book 4, I was hoping to go straight onto Book 5 as Book 4 was every bit as good as the first three. However, Nothing! No Book 5!

    This would not have been so bad if Book 4 did not end in a cliffhanger, but it did and now we will never know what happened, if anything!
