Publisher's Summary

You know, there are some days it just doesn't pay to get out of bed. This was one of those days. 

My head hurt. There was blood everywhere. My ship was shot full of holes and leaking more gases and fluids than a 1976 Chevy Vega...the one with an aluminum block. I should have just pulled the sheets up and rolled over when I had the chance.... 

I’m admiral of the fleet, Jeremy David Riker. My friends call me "Dog".

very good

This was a well written space opera. I started with the second book because it was on sale (I think?) but I didn't feel lost at all.

The premise was a bit novel and enjoyable. There were clearly defined good guys and bad guys. The science seemed fairly well thought out. This isn't an epic series like The Expanse series but I liked it. There was a nod to STNG: a character named Riker, tongue in cheek references to "warp drive", the captain going on away teams and a relationship between the captain and female doctor. Also, a nod to the original Star Trek with an engineer with a Scottish accent. There were probably more that I missed. It didn't feel like a rip off though.

The narrator had distinct voices and accents for all the characters. Even the aliens and AI's were given specific speech patterns.

My only con is that the books are fairly short. I like to get more reading time for my money. Unless the first and third book go on sale, I probably won't get them. Aside from that, I'd recommend this series

"Even the popcorn machine was broken."

So many ways to die in space, especially when facing the Defilers. Told from 'Dog's' perspective - the cloned Admiral - who admits to having ' a gift when it comes to being an irritant', the ongoing story is filled with spaceships, fight action, A.I.s, humour and good straightforward space opera. Oh, yes, and a plague. There is a cliffhanger ending, so not a standalone, and it's also best if book one is read first.
Again narrated skillfully by Dave Cruse. He carried the text well, with good pacing, modulation and just the right amount of slick amused investment in the text to fully fit the character. Good individual voicing for every protagonist, too. A fine performance which made the short book even more enjoyable.

I received War Dog at my request, as a complimentary copy, from Free Audiobook Codes, and would like to thank the rights holder for making it available for anyone who wants to freely download.

Excellent Military Science Fiction

This is very well-written with excellent situational progression. The vocal pressure was absolutely professional. All through this story, a PG rating is expected, as the author was able to communicate the narrative keeping the language quite clean.
I would recommend this audiobook to ages 14 or older as the story requires an imagination of of a good adventurer.
I was given this audiobook for free and I freely give it my rating and opinion.

An awesome Series

Ol' Dog is a different type of character that's for sure, as are all the rest. The way Dog gets you to laughing, and then throws you a curve ball, and your right in the middle of the action is awesome. You have to check it out for yourself. Dave Cruse does an excellent job with the Narration, and he has quite a variety of voices to make it all come together.

Good but lost some of it zing!

Still a good story but this one was written so fast you do not or I could not follow the storyline. Thus one left me confused and wondering what happen even the narrator could help it
