Publisher's Summary

Killing the bad guy just got a whole lot harder.

Knox is feeling the pressure to remember where he hid the Tangle Thief. The Saverus are also hunting for the device. It’s a race to find it first. 

Eddie and Julianna seek out a hypnotherapist to help Knox uncover the secrets his subconscious has buried, even though the therapist is on his own personal journey into the abyss. What is the truth? 

Sometimes discovery is a team effort. What the team learns is more important than any technology. Fight as one, or stand alone. 

Experience this exciting military sci-fi saga and the latest addition to the expanded Kurtherian Gambit Universe. If you’re a fan of Mass Effect, Firefly, or Star Wars, you’ll love this riveting new space opera.

Note: If cursing is a problem, then this might not be for you.

Get your Geek on!

I love this series and each book is wonderful in its own way. In this installment, we follow our intrepid heroes as they try to find a weapon that could destroy the Universe. Knox, the mechanical genius of Ghost Squadron, used the Tangle Thief 10 years ago to try to find his father. Instead, he ended up on a planet full of junk, sort of like a junkyard for spacecraft. He hid the Tangle Thief somewhere, but his memory seems to be failing him.

This book has plenty of action, plenty of disgusting aliens and loads of snark and cursing, all served up with a heaping helping of pop culture references. What two creatures come to mind for most people when you think of the most disgusting ones you might encounter? Rats and Snakes! You get both here in large form (Yuck!) along with the fact that the snake-like Saeverus are shape shifters and can take on the form of whomever they chose. Even though you might suspect that they person you are talking to might be one of these things, can you really kill something that looks exactly like your partner or even yourself?

I have loved following the development of the characters and their relationships throughout this series. The tough as nails Julianna does have a heart after all, as once again evidenced by her risking her life to save animals. Also, is there a romance brewing between Jules and Eddie? Other potential romances are hinted at and I can't wait to see what the authors have in store in the final installment (SOB!!).

The combination of Sarah Noffke's relationship and character building along with Michael Anderle's ability to pour on the action make this a great series, especially if you love Star Trek, Star Wars or other sci-fi worlds.

The narrator, Chris Abernathy, is perfect for this book and adds a lot to the listener's enjoyment with his various voices. I am amazed at someone who can keep so many characters/voices straight in their heads!

A fantastic space adventure

Recollection is a fantastic space adventure book that continues the story arc which started with Impersonation. The book has lots of action and humor but also takes the time for characters to get to know each other and for us to get to know them. There is a fair amount of cussing, so if that offends you, you may want to read something else.

The narrator is good at bringing humor into the stories, and his reading makes listening to the books fun, even if Juliana and the other women all sound like guys.

Otter assassins in a sci-fi? Check this out.

Reviewer: Teresa Fallen Angel

Summary:

The story was a rush form the very beginning. Knox is both determined to regain his memories and find the tangle thief, but scared about what happened. Add to that the return of Knox’s father making everything more complicated. I really enjoyed when Eddie and company took Knox to see a psychiatrist who was himself living in a mental facility making allowing the reader to understand that the difference between sanity may just be ones own perspective. The fight with the Saverus escalates as their determination to win at any costs shows that unlike humanity they will sacrifice their own to succeed. Add to that otter assassins who are both freaky and scary/adorable at the same time. It is wonderful to watch Julianna’s evolution from appearing cold and hard nosed to being more open to others as the series unfolds. Things may not always end the way the team wants, but their ability to adapt and support each other make them stronger than anything the Saverus may throw at them.

This audiobook was brought to life by a narrator who took the time to uniquely portray each character in the story.

A bit predictable

This story to me was more than a bit predictable and Eddie continues to be an idiot... he seems to always amaze me with the new levels he can stoop down to.

Always an Unexpected Welcomed Twist

Loved it, couldn't put it down! Because this is an audible version I can listen for extended periods and that makes the book seem to short.

A wonderful collaboration between author&narrator

My sixth read from the collaborative efforts of authors Sarah Noffke & Michael Anderle. With every subsequent book, the series gets more exciting & enjoyable. Narrator Chris Abernathy again adds greatly to the book’s enjoyment. I look forward to Ghost Squadron #7, the final book in the series. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018)
