Publisher's Summary

They picked a fight with the wrong species.

"A Nation at War": the United Stars of America. Born in the conflagration of unprovoked alien attack, the newest entrant to galactic politics took the few crumbs of hypertech gifted to it and ran with them, soon expanding over dozens of star systems and establishing a wide trade network, protected by its powerful Navy and the dreaded Warp Marines.

"A Fight to the Death": a single Marine platoon, tasked with protecting an embassy on a hostile alien planet. An embassy - and the human enclave around it - that soon finds itself surrounded by armed mobs. Can the Marines and a ragtag band of civilian and Navy personnel survive long enough to be rescued?

Oh what a Guy!

This listen was tinged with just enough imagination to feel it was a reality just around the corner. The different military types were well developed and believable, No super bionic or cyborgs needed. The politics were disappointing because they hadn't improved from today's smarmy, corrupted, self serving bodies. But the narrator Guy Williams was great. He kept the action moving, no lulls. He gave depth to the characters and gave each his own easily recognized persona. He is definitely on my top ten narrators having just rendered a great performance that increased my enjoyment of Decisively Engaged.

A good SciFi book.

I may get hung up on details. But, the author is not consistent on his use of units. Overall a good science fiction book.

Wow, What a pleasant surprise!

Let me say first that this is not my normal kind of Science -Fiction book. I am usually far more interested in the works of China Mieville, say, or a new discovery of my own. This book was popping up on occasion however when I had the time to delve, and I gave it a shot. I am really glad I did! Far more depth and realism in this book than any, "Oh, look I solved an obvious puzzle and poof I have a spaceship" carp await you in here. I did check the Amazon reviews and yup, apparently the gun stuff is all right and tight, and the military is fully believable and there are even characters!! Whom you will find yourself wondering what happens to, instead of flat, two dimensional cut-outs..and best of all is the clever idea the author has regarding "warp", which I found both funny and creepy but not silly! An excellent book and hint..the second one is good as well and there's a third out too! A finished trilogy! (I guess?) That's a prize right there!

Fantastic Introduction to the series

I first heard of a guy named CJ Carella 21 years ago in high school when we acquired the newly released Juicer Uprising. I only recently found out that he had a series of novels on Audible and I'm so glad I did.

I was completely hooked by the prologue. LDS traveling the galaxy, converting aliens and serving as Murder-Shepherds is brilliant. Russet the lovable evil Marine might actually be my favorite character in the book. And Space Puppies! Frickin' Space Puppies!

Guy Williams narration is great. This is the first book I've heard him narrate and I'm looking forward to hearing more.

Started off Slow -and then ground to a halt -

What disappointed you about Decisively Engaged?

Excellent insomia cure

What do you think your next listen will be?

Grass growing

How could the performance have been better?

Let me count the ways

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not yet

Any additional comments?

Its difficult to review a negative. I got the book because it has been so long since anything worthwhile has been offered. (Read here - Desperate) I should have known better
