The great writing and character development. The Narrator nails it too!

What did you like best about this story?

The slow, steady and well paced build up along with the complex characters

Which character – as performed by Tim Gerard Reynolds – was your favorite?

Pax au Telemanus!!!!!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Near the end, went it's all said and done and you get to see the main characters unflinching will to see it through, this is just the beginning for him.

The misogyny just got too much for me.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Less sexism, also if the Author stopped endlessly repeating himself that would be good too. A good general plot ruined by poor dialogue and unnecessary over explanations of thing that would be obvious to all but the authors most dim witted readers.

What could Raymond L. Weil have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Have a more enlightened attitude towards women. These are meant to be elite Earth space marines yet he writes the women as flighty, insecure, delicate flowers in need of a mans protection with nothing on their brains but men and babies.

What aspect of Liam Owen’s performance would you have changed?

The sound of his voice.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Annoyance. Grating
