Publisher's Summary

Mankind's newest fleet has just been obliterated. Attacked without warning, enemy unknown. Their last transmission originated from a world on the edge of known space.

Alpha Company is dispatched to investigate. They're the best of the best. Hardcore warriors piloting battle-tested mechs, they've never lost an engagement.

Until they arrive on Ganog 7.

Now, shattered and stuck behind enemy lines, the remnants of Alpha Company struggle to survive. Between them and escape stand three Planetstriders, thousand-meter monstrosities capable of destroying an orbiting capital ship.

In order to survive, they must disable these titanic war machines, an impossible task made even more difficult by the discovery of a terrible secret - one that must reach fleet command, no matter the cost.

An original mech novel with epic space battles

Behind the Lines is a new take on the mech genre. I have an affinity towards mech novels and I’ve read quite a bit of Battletech. This book brought a lot of new stuff to the table for me, especially all of the alien races. I really appreciated how the book also had good amounts of infantry combat and huge epic space battles. This was a truly original and engaging story from start to finish, and I can whole heartedly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys mech novels. The narrator does an amazing job with this story, voicing a wide variety of characters and different aliens. I would have enjoyed reading this book as well, but his voice acting really brought the characters to life for me and kept me interested from start to finish. I look forward to listening to next book in the series.

This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review.

Great writing as always

Would you consider the audio edition of Behind the Lines to be better than the print version?

Never read the print, but the narrator adds a lot to my enjoyment

What did you like best about this story?

The new girl...never know her name...lol

Which character – as performed by Ryan Kennard Burke – was your favorite?

Annie

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

yeah and I just about did

Any additional comments?

I wish the book was a little longer. But as always Chris wants us to do a little reading ourselves. Reading the prequel now.

Solid Military Sci Fi

Review copy. If you like shows like BSG, or books like Old Man's War or Starship Troopers you will like this. The combat is strong, and unique enough to separate it from the crowd. The characters and dialogue are a little generic but this might improve as the series unfolds. 7/10

Mechs! what is not to love

What did you love best about Behind the Lines?

The Mechs of course

What does Ryan Kennard Burke bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narration brought the book alive while listening ( I have a long commute)

Any additional comments?

An powerful new enemy with somewhat familiar tech

I have listed to nearly all of Chris Fox's books, and Ryan K. Burke is a familiar voice that brings depth to the characters. I am already downloading the next one.

enjoyed

I really enjoyed getting the chance to join back up with fizgig and nolin on their adventures. And I hope that the next two books are just as good. Thanks for continuing the story just a little more.

Could have been better.

I don’t want to dis a person doing a job I have never done. But this narrator just doesn’t make the grade. In this and all the other books I have that he has narrated have just not did it for me. The story is ok. But not good. Could have been the narration, but I doubt it.
