This was a good listen and will probably be enjoyed by most space science fiction fans. There was a lot of action including space battles, boardings, ..Show More »and alien encounters. All-in-all I would say that it was good but had a few drawbacks that, while noticeable, didn't take too much from the overall book.
There are several parallel stories which include an advanced new warship in final testing and a new luxury liner carrying hundreds of VIPs. The luxury ship is attacked by aliens and the story progresses from there. While the story was still engaging, the fact that I started with this book and not book 1 in the series was to my disadvantage. Though I eventually pieced together a lot of the backstory, I was lost at a few points in the book as far as some of the characters and their relationships were concerned. Also, while not completely unrealistic, the aliens were given the most stereotypical appearance and description I could possibly think of...
I give the narration a 7/10, but I didn't like some of the female voices were a little annoying.
I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.
