Publisher's Summary

Humanity is tired of losing. Enter the mech.

Jake Price has always dreamed of joining the Darkstream military like his father before him. When he’s told his gaming scores are good enough to qualify him for a brand-new training program designed to find recruits talented enough to pilot humanity’s first mechs, he can hardly believe it.

He’s right to be doubtful. There are hundreds of other recruits competing for the same eight jobs, and they’re all as skilled as he is. Worse, the training instructor is an unhinged chief with a particular dislike for Jake.

But Jake refuses to give up, refuses to wash out, because humanity is facing its greatest threat yet. If someone doesn’t step up, it could all be over for the human species.

It’s Mechs. What more do you want?

I loved this series. Lots of action and a well put together story. Highly recommendable.

Mostly flash but still fun

I’m a big fan of mech shows and I’ve been wanting an author to tackle mechs in more sci books. I feel like it’s a genre that deserves to be explored more. That being said this is a nice step but in the end not what o wanted.

The science just didn’t feel believable and would take my out of my immersion. That being said I had plenty of fun and for one credit it was a decent investment

Typical Mech Battle Story

Nothing new here ... pretty good classic Mech lingo and tech. As a 4 book package a enjoyable read ... but 4 credits for 4 books would not be just. Characters never really gelled.

ok

kind of addicted, but really, the series is like reading 3 different stories that finally merge in book 4. and the ending is somewhat uncomplete. of course, there are many great action scenses, i just kinda not really like the storyline.

Good performance, despite the writing.

It feels like the author is in a rush the whole book but at the end the reveal just isn't worth it.

I wish I’d liked this book

For a casual space sci fo fan this has got all you want. Giant mechs, aliens and conspiracy. Unfortunately I felt it lacked some of the depth, originality and finesse of characters. For 25 hours of listening there was ample time to develop the story but I still have no idea how big the actual mechs were supposed to be and there were a few times I considered giving up. Still kinda wish I would have

After the first couple of chapters, I had to stop listening, It's was trying real hard to put me to sleep. Waste of a perfectly good credit!

repetitive action

repetitive story with a lack of emotional link to contents or characters. found that it easily altered the characters personality to push story line ideas that in the big picture didn't change much other than allowing for the repetitive battles to follow the same stages of story as the previous battle, normally in the same location.
I listened to the end as I felt the story did have potential to go somewhere interesting, but in the end I was left disappointed with nothing feeling like it was resolved or that the characters had grown or developed in a way that made me care about their journey. The performance was good & well read but the story failed to draw me in.
