Publisher's Summary

Drama and excitement explode in this new, expanded version of New York Times best-selling author Diana Palmer's legendary first book, The Morcai Battalion.

A ragtag band of humans from the Terravegan colonies fights the Rojok invaders and their ship is destroyed. Rescued by the Centaurian commander of the terror-inspiring Holconcom, the humans must learn to live with their hostile alien counterparts when they are captured by the Rojoks and thrown into the galaxy's most horrible prison camp. The female exobiologist has to save the life of the alien commander in order to save her captain, her comrades, and herself. This is a rocket ride full of action, humor, and sacrifice.

Pleasantly Surprised

Usually when I get an audio book, I choose one based on the amount of 5 star ratings it gets and of course based on the back cover info. This one had no reviews but after reading what it was about, I gave it a try. This book was a very fun read and I thought it had a great story line that kept me so intertained that I found myself a little surprised and sad to hear its last words. If you like good scifi I recomend this one. It kind of has the feel of the star trek shows.

Not too bad...

I read books for entertainment. If I enjoy it and it helps me continue to work or I don't want to put them down or shut them off then they are worth it. This was worth it. It is a little violent and odd with all of the cloning but other wise a good read.

sci fi or romance

This does resemble an old Star trek, but I cant make it past the first few chapters when Scotty got cycled out through the air lock. This is one of those futuristic romances written in the eighties by an author who should have stuck to plots in the twentieth century.
