Legion Dark Ops calls upon Chhun, Wraith, and the survivors of Victory Company to form an elite Kill Team of legionnaires in the aftermath of the Battle of Kublar. Their mission is clear: find and eliminate those responsible for the Kublar disaster. Standing between them and their objective are a maze of corrupt Republic officials, a spy on the verge of losing himself in deep cover, and the Zhee - a murderous species that will stop at nothing. But the biggest threat of all might be the truth they seek to uncover - a truth that could ignite a revolution. And engulf the galaxy in flames.

Too many different stories in the last half. I really wanted to stop listening, but I was worried one of the characters I like might make an appearance. RC bray does the best he can.

The Galahad, a faster-than-light spacecraft, carries 50 scientists and engineers on a mission to prepare Kepler 452b, Earth's nearest habitable neighbor at 1400 light years away. With Earth no longer habitable and the Mars colony slowly failing, they are humanity's best hope. After 10 years in a failed cryogenic bed - body asleep, mind awake - William Chanokh's torture comes to an end as the fog clears, the hatch opens, and his friend and fellow hacker, Tom, greets him...by stabbing a screwdriver into his heart. This is the first time William dies.

Decent distraction. Very predictable story path. Obviously some of the events are surprising but the most entertaining part was mentally trying to explain the events if my assumption were incorrect. Unfortunately they were not incorrect and left me a tad bored.

The first book had a very young sounding guy reading. This guy is a major change. It took me a while to get used to his voice but in the end it sounded right for the part.
