After the mysterious discovery of an alien mech inside a comet, Darkstream Security has finally completed its own design. They assign Chief Gabriel Roach with the task of whittling down hundreds of bright young recruits to form a team of elite mech pilots, which he will command. Their mission: protect human colonies from the almighty Quatro. A single Quatro can take down an entire squad of traditional soldiers. But Roach is the perfect one for the job.

The same review for all three books since all flow into one. Good performance from Mark Boyett but otherwise disappointingly lean on noteworthy characters, 3, stories, 2 and a half, closure, 0, and overall content. Worth one credit for all three books but I paid three with two credit's buyers remorse.

Chief Roach's victory over the ferocious Quatro won't last long, it seems. Strange meteorites have fallen to the surface of Eresos, containing mechs - quadruped mechs, clearly designed for the enemy. If the quad mechs fall into the enemy's possession before Roach can get them to the space elevator, humanity will lose the advantage granted by their own MIMAS mechs, and they'll be right back to where they were: outmatched and overpowered by the murderous alien beasts.

Chief Roach has merged with an alien mech - but can he control its power? Harnessing alien tech was the only way to counter the power of the quadruped mechs piloted by the Quatro. Except Roach's awesome new weapon is like a sword with no hilt, and it seems to be doing everything it can to fragment his psyche. Roach must lead Oneiri Team across an Eresos engulfed by the fires of war. Their mission is to stop the legions of Quatro from laying waste to what remains of humanity's colonies.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it is if Tom Clancy wrote it but his editor tripped and mixed a Splinter Cell draft with a 50 Shades of Grey draft and they fixed it in post.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mike, mostly a lone wolf story for book one. The supporting characters are great and fill that role as intended.

Which scene was your favorite?

Spoilers...

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No
