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.

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.

It’s Mechs. What more do you want?

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

I unfortunately did not enjoy this story at all

I wanted to like it; just could not get past the extremely bad characters, poorly created names, lack if any viable tactical decisions, and some really bad science. I slogged through this series as I had purchased the complete set hoping it would get better, but did not. So far, out of the hundreds of scifi books I have been through, this series is a leader as the worst.

Difficult to finish and unsatisfying in the end.

This "complete series" leaves many major loose ends, has a lack of interesting conversation, and linear unbelievable technology development. No lack of action though and decently read.

Decent, though there are some hitches.

The narrators choice of accent/voice for Lisa was a bit off-putting. Though the technique seems to improve after book one. I enjoyed the story overall and could reccomend it for fans of military sci-fi.
