What did you like best about The Purge of Babylon Series Box Set: Books 1-3? What did you like least?

This is an interesting story with good character development but is also annoyingly discordant. It is fairly obvious that the author has no first hand experience with firearms and quite often has operation, effect, range, and accuracy wildly wrong. At times it almost reads as inaccurate anti-gun propaganda.

In the year 2420, war looms between the galaxy's two most powerful empires: the tyrannical Theocracy and the protectionist Commonwealth. Caught in the middle sits the occupied outpost system Cadiz, where young officer and aristocrat Katherine "Kat" Falcone finds herself prematurely promoted at the behest of her powerful father. Against her own wishes, Kat is sent to command the Commonwealth navy's newest warship, Lightning.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Lauren Ezzo?

I would have cast almost anyone else!

Any additional comments?

I have a very hard time reconciling the fact that this was written by the same author that wrote the Empire Corps series. The story is riddled with mind jarring errors and less than mature story and character development. I could believe this being an early work before the author had hit his stride but the publication date belies that idea.There is little that I can add to earlier comments about the poor choice in narrator.Her voices and choices of tone and word emphasis completely changed the tone and focus of the scenes.I am disappointed. Perhaps the Empire Corps series spoiled me...
