Publisher's Summary

Former Marine Jason McKay thinks his first assignment as a military intelligence officer - as the head of a protection detail for a Republic senator's daughter on her humanitarian mission to the star colonies - will be a boring waste of time. Until Aphrodite, the agricultural colony they're touring, is invaded by an inhuman enemy that may threaten Earth, and McKay and his people are trapped far behind enemy lines.

Separated from his team during the attack, McKay has to try to keep Valerie O'Keefe, the idealistic daughter of a powerful politician, alive in the face of threats from an alien menace and a more mundane revolutionary front that is working to free the forced exiles from their servitude to the MultiCorps that run the colonies.

Meanwhile, McKay's second in command, Shannon Stark, leads the remainder of the special operations unit in a mission to sabotage the invaders' efforts to loot the resources of Aphrodite. The small group of commandos also attempts to learn more about the true identity of their enemy, who may not be as alien as they believe.

Together, these two officers fight to survive, to protect the civilians in their charge...and to do their duty.

Story A+ Reader A+ Sound C-

What did you like best about Duty, Honor, Planet? What did you like least?

Story was entrancing! I really liked the real to life complicated relationships. The narrator has a lovely voice but his production became mechanical towards the end. The sound had issues, Sometimes hard to hear sometimes normal. Some hissing too.

What other book might you compare Duty, Honor, Planet to and why?

It really stands on it's own. No long battle scenes which can get boring.

What about William Mark Woelfle’s performance did you like?

His voice is lovely to listen to.

Did Duty, Honor, Planet inspire you to do anything?

No, should it?

Meh...

Routine, Clichéd, Predictable, Dull, 2-D Characters... I wish I paid more attention to the negative reviews. Had to restart countless times. Finishing this book was like finishing my Brussell sprouts as a kid.

Good story!

This was a great story! The beginning was a little more technical/sci-fi nerdy than I'd normally read, but it wasn't bad, and the action came early enough that it didn't lose my interest.

I'd definitely read more stories from this "universe".

Bad recording

There was a hiss in the recording that drove me crazy! Might have liked it better without this distraction
