The first Cobra trilogy was OK but realy didn't have much action. It was good to listen to but lacked real action. This trilogy has a very easy to lis..Show More »ten to format with action and drama. Very Good It keeps your attention for hours.

We spend a chapter with one group, then the point of view switches to another group... this sometimes feels a bit abrupt, but it's a good way to see the same "battle" from different perspectives.
Otherwise, it is a military sci-fi book where the military action is all "on-planet" (no space ship battling). There is probably a bit less personal drama (i.e. less about Mom's health, or about the family being apart) and a bit more interaction with alien species/planetary life. Though, to be honest, the aliens aren't really very alien... they are occasionally described in a manner that makes them seem alien, but for the most part, their vehicles, weapons, doors, stairs, ships, etc, are all human-familiar or human-usable.
I did like the story as much as the first one, even with the jumps between the different main characters, but I disliked the ending a bit more - it felt like it was just stopped. There wasn't a cliff-hanger, but the ending still felt sudden... I even checked the download file to make sure it hadn't been accidentally truncated.
The narration is good. There is some non-graphic violence, no swearing and no sex. I bought the next book in the series as I enjoy this type of action-packed, non-moralizing, military sci-fi romp.
This is book 3 in the series but it't ending leaves alot of holes in the story. I typed in Cobra at Audible and to my surprise I found 3 more books.....Show More »NOT the first trigoly..Cobra EVENT, Cobra STRIKE and Cobra SLAVE...But when I clicked on the title it kepted saying No Mach.
