Publisher's Summary

Starting an interstellar security consulting company was supposed to be easy.

Rade got his ex-military teammates together and they pooled their savings to buy a ship and six mechs. The Argonauts were born.

But it wasn't easy.

Ruthless bankers are breathing down their necks, vengeful warlords are promising to pursue them across the galaxy, and now a mysterious new client wants Rade and his Argonauts to escort her to a frontier planet.

Problem is, the new client won't reveal her cargo. It's probably something illegal. Well, Rade needs the money, so a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

They arrive to find the frontier colony strangely deserted. When the shit hits the fan and the Argonauts face a possible alien infestation, it's time to pull out the big guns. Because if there's one thing Rade and his Argonauts really love, it's a good bug hunt.

And this one looks to be the hunt of a lifetime.

For fans of Old Man's War, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Armor. From a USA Today best-selling author.

Bug Hunters Snag Some Bugs!

* Warning spoilers incoming! *
All I can say is buy it: what a romp! Luke Daniels, the voice actor who reads Argonauts Book 1: Bug Hunt, is actually as good as Peter Berkrot (who performed Isaac Hooke’s ATLAS series on Audible). That is saying a lot. I couldn’t say which one is better at this point. I always find it amazing how they can switch voices, tonality, and really, personalities, at the drop of a pin. Luke Daniels got all the lines down right, from serious tones to jokes, and brings each character to life with a unique voice.
If you listen to audio books, don’t miss Isaac Hooke’s Argonauts Book 1: Bug Hunt performed by Luke Daniels… you’ll regret it if you miss it!

Look at Atlas first

This seems to extend a universe with a lot of content in other series. It's got decent action and tech, but doesn't explore it or the characters with a depth that drew me in. Maybe having read a previous arc would have helped. It's B movie, Sci-fi, which can be a fun guilty pleasure.
