After a long day of prepping a house for painting, all Gus Berry wanted was the night off to spend some time with his girlfriend and relax before having to return to work the next morning. But that isn’t going to happen. Because Gus’s co-worker Benny has found a one-night job at the local Mollymart East, a job that has to be done by morning. If Gus and his paint crew can complete the work by then, it could mean huge business with a respected, established grocery store chain.

A dirty deal was struck. Humanity was allowed to keep 300 rebellious worlds. In return, we declared war on a powerful enemy from beyond the frontier. A frantic build-up of forces has begun, but the task is hopeless. Seeking allies, Earth's legions are sent to Blood World. A planet on the fringe of known space, where the people only respect masters of combat. Earth's Legions must impress them, but other alien powers have been invited to join the contest. The prize consists of billions of loyal troops - Earth must win.

Nothing ever changes in Sanders. The town's still got a video store, for God's sake. So why doesn't Eli Teague want to leave? Not that he'd ever admit it, but maybe he's been waiting - waiting for the traveler to come back. The one who's roared into his life twice before, pausing just long enough to drop tantalizing clues before disappearing in a cloud of gunfire and a squeal of tires. The one who's a walking anachronism, with her tricorne hat, flintlock rifle, and steampunked Model A Ford.

He and his crew are infamous among the stars. As a result, when ships of an unknown configuration begin flowing out of swirling rifts above Earth, Blake is called upon again to deal with the problem.

I do like JL Bourne, but sometimes his stories lack, more thought. this book was ok, but not great. I felt more often than not that I was listening to filler that wasn't pertinent to the story. The editor also needs to step in more when certain phrases are repeated in quick succession.
I still recommend this book.

Another great story in the world of MHI. It's not a book having a SPECIFIC storyline, or beginning, middle and end. It's exactly as described, journal entries of sorts. But in story form. Whatever, good book, listen to it.

The narration was great. The story was just ok. If you only listen to the first and last three hours of the book, it will be enjoyable. Tons of what I consider "unimportant filler" was in the middle of the book.
