Publisher's Summary

Here are two action-packed novels from David Drake's "Hammer's Slammers" series, which set the standard for military science fiction.

In Counting the Cost, the hottest science-fiction mercenaries are back, so why count the cost? The other guy is going to pay for it! Hammer's Slammers must win a two-front war while maintaining the civilian power structure against hordes of religious fanatics.

In The Warrior, Colonel Alois Hammer, Luke Broglie, Tess Kuykendall, and Slick Des Grieux - cogs in a killing machine - find themselves at the center of a potential bloodbath.

Good Book - Poor Reader

This audiobook contains two Hammers Slammers Novellas by David Drake. Hammers Slammers are a mercenary group in a SF future. The books are quite good if you like military SF.

But the reader speaks in a very deep monotone. The monotone is so pronounced that it is difficult to determine which character he is speaking for unless you are paying very careful attention. I've read the books, but I had difficulty following parts of the story while doing normal driving due to the reader. The reader enunciates well, but the enjoyment of the books is hampered by the narration.

Life in the Shadows of Death

This is war. It may be sci-fi, but it is so real you can practically smell the dead. Hammers Slammers once again delivers that bitter shot of war we all hate and love. Well worth your coin.
