Earth is no longer the center of the universe. After the invention of the faster-than-light jump drive, humanity is rapidly establishing new colonies. But the vast distances of space mean that the old order of protection and interstellar law offered by Earth has ceased to exist. When a nearby world attacks, the new colony of Glenlyon turns to Robert Geary, a young former junior fleet officer, and Mele Darcy, a onetime enlisted marine.

Great story, told very well by the Narrater, he does well to to communicate what you would think the perspective of the character as defined by the author... That leads to how well written the book was... great book, great series.

When Union Colonel Andrew Keane led his blue-coated soldiers aboard the transport ship, he could not have foreseen that their next port of call would be neither in the North nor the South, but on an alternate world where no human was free. Storm-swept through a space-time warp, Keane's regiment was shipwrecked in an alien land, a land where all that stood between them and destruction was the power of rifles over swords, spears, and crossbows.

Great Book - Great Series

Reviewed: 03-31-09

Having read the entire series and then have the first book on audio is great. The historical accuracy of the regiment is fundamentally accurate - How they react to such an unknown threat such as it is, I believe is as humanly accurate as you can get. I enjoyed re-reading it and enjoyed listening to it. I look forward to the rest of the series to be added to this audio collection. If you like stepping outside the box, you will not be disappointed here.
