Earth Two. A new home for the survivors of the fleet, the men and women who battled against seemingly insurmountable odds to survive the assault of the First Imperium and to destroy the homicidal Regent, the artificial intelligence committed to their destruction. They have prospered in the years since their arrival, adapting the technology of the First Imperium to build a new and prosperous republic. But as the fear of the First Imperium recedes, cracks have begun to appear, conflicts looming that threaten to destroy all they have worked to achieve.

The production value is horrible, it brings the whole book down. Who ever did the editing has a lot to learn!

They are an international elite unit created by NATO to carry out missions where no other could hope to succeed. A mix of Seals, Delta Force, British SAS and French, German and Polish SpecOps operators. Led by a former Navy Seal, Lieutenant Abe Talley. This is Echo Six. Even before they finish training a crisis develops that requires their unique and bloody brand of soldiering.

What would have made Echo Six: Black Ops - Raid on Somalia better?

The best would have been to not published this or any other book in this series.

Would you ever listen to anything by Eric Meyer again?

Well I did get the second book and listen to it. In the hope that it would be better. But no, I did not get any better. It got worse if you can believe that. I will not ever read a book from the self proclaimed author Eric Meyer. If there is a price for worst published book, Mr Meyers won them all with his books.

How could the performance have been better?

How can it have been any worse? The sound quality is horrible, the editing is extremely poor. The narrative is the worst part. To think that Tim got payed for this is unbelievable. The book didn't get better by him screaming throughout the book. He's trying to do some accent in the beginning. Which he gave up, well that was a good thing.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Echo Six: Black Ops - Raid on Somalia?

I would have cut the whole book, and told Meyer to get a jod digging ditches by hand and never try to write ever again.

Any additional comments?

Please don't waste your time on this book, or any other of the books in the series. It will not get any better. I've also read the second book, in the belief that it would get better. I was wrong, so wrong. There is nothing remotely good.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I can't see how anyone would like this book. That the book has been published is a shame.

Has Assault on Iran turned you off from other books in this genre?

I've learned my lesson not to read anything more by Eric Meyer. I even gave him a second chance. I thought that the second book would not be as bad as the first book. But I was sooo wrong.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Tim Welch made it so much worse. He can't do a accent to save his life. The britt sounded like a American with a speech impediment. Tim make them all sound angry throughout the book. He has no feeling what so ever. The editing of the book was the worst I ever heard. Lots of repeat words and phrases.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No, how about some fact checking before writing a book. Maybe have someone read the book before releasing it.

Any additional comments?

The cover of the book is the only good thing with this book. But don't get fooled. The story is so incredibly bad and annoying. I'm shocked that someone actually have published this book. Who in their right mind would read this book and say "What a great book let's get this published right away"?
I'm a fool to have bought this book. When the first book was so bad.
