Publisher's Summary

Jack Reilly’s luck ran out just before the war did. Released on a medical discharge shortly after the end of the war with the Serkins, he went out into the galaxy looking for a job. Signing onto the Glacier Runner 17, an old and rundown cargo ship, Rielly finds himself working for a clueless captain, mixed-up in an intergalactic conspiracy, on the run from assassins, and involved with two women in relationships that he could only call "complicated".

Fans of Matthew O. Duncan will recognize the universe as the same as from the New Terra Sagas, but this is not a sequel. This is a stand-alone spin-off with new characters, new worlds, and in a different format. Told in the first person from Reilly’s perspective, this is a fast-moving, non-stop sci-fi adventure.

Great Military Adventure!

Story is well written. Any adult situations were tactfully described with more than just the physical aspect only. The narration was quite smooth and professional. All Military action was described as though the author had Military experience.
I recommend this book for ages 16+ due to tense situations depicted.
I was given the audiobook for free, and I freely do give my evaluation of it.

Don't mess with the Engineer.

Really fun story. I loved how the humble retired-ish Reilly stayed one step ahead of everyone throughout the entire story. Well, maybe not his relationships, but the enemy at least. Lots of mystery, action and pulling victory from the jaws of defeat. If I'm going to space, I'd like him in the engine room!

A great old-fashioned Space Opera

First, to get it out of the way. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
That being said, this is a great story for anyone that loves the Science Fiction of the John W. Campbell era. This story has the flavor of those stories written by Andre Norton, Eric Frank Russell, and others of that time.
The story flows well, The narrator gives life to the characters and, and the combination I found, left the story ending much sooner than I wanted.

Please say there is a book two!

This was easily one of my most enjoyable books this year!! I loved the main character, Jack Reilly!! He was smart, military, older, and wiser. And he kept saving the day!!!!!

The two main females were equal parts soft and hard. Together they rounded out all the rough edges for Jack and made for some very interesting interplay.

The narrator was something special. This book was non-stop action with a variety of characters. Everything was performed to perfection.

I can't tell from the title if this is a series but I certainly hope so!!

A Hard-boiled Sci-fi

This was a great story with a main character you could get behind. I am looking forward to the next book in the series to see what happens next.

Book one

I would recommend you listen/read this one before going onto book two. This way you get more of a feel for the characters. I actually liked Lt. Reilly in this book, which shows that the author knows how to write a good character.
It has plenty of action and is fast paced.
I had no problems with the narrator I thought he suited the book.

Great book.

This was a great story, the characters are very likable, it will keep you on your toes & is not predictable. The Narrator did an excellent job & his voice fits the main character exactly, the other characters are also voiced exceptionally well.
Once you start listening you won't want to stop & I look forward to the next story.
I recieved this book free of charge for an honest review.

SCIFY GOLD!

First, I have to start off by stating that I got this book free of charge in exchange for a review, but as I always state, this does not in any way impact my review. My reviews are always honest and my own.

Jack Reilly, is a good-natured and easily likable character. As I learned more about this character, I felt that he was trying to do the right thing. But, circumstances that he found himself in, really challenged him. He kept true to this virtue and was able to change not only his luck but also helped stop a civil war from happening. I enjoyed this action/adventure/sci-fi novel.

Great story just to short.

I found this book to be an excellent listen with a not op Mc which is getting harder to find these days. You have an above average guy thrust in to this situation but he has good skills and makes it work. My only issue is the love triangle, I wish that part was just left out. I was able to listen to this book straight through with no breaks needed (minus stopping for work).

I definitely recommend this book and am starting book 2 soon.
