Publisher's Summary

The Space Marines are in the Oort Cloud, racing in their insertion pods to the frozen planetoid of Tyche. Alone in the dark, outnumbered and outgunned by the cyborgs waiting for them on the methane-ice surface, the hour of desperation has arrived. This novella is set in the Doom Star series.

WELCOME TO THE OORT CLOUD

This is extremely good. A know that Military Science Fiction Fans will love this. I am not a Military Science Fiction Fan, but I am a Smart Science Fan. Heppner uses his head to figure his way out of what seems an impossible situation. A group of Space Marines spend two years in space to track down and kill these Cyborgs who are superior to them in every way. It takes cunning and lots of smarts. A love the science in this and I love that it takes place in the Oort cloud.

As I have mentioned before, Heppner like Larson does not write literature, but they write about things we want to know about. They are always interesting.

Mark Boyett does a great job, which makes the listening better then the reading, although if I find the hard copy I will buy it for my collection.

Wish there was mor in the series

Just what was on Planetary assault. Bit annoying how short it is.
Good story and exiting all the way, but a copy of the planetary Attacks in assault troopers and the others.
Good for a short story
