Publisher's Summary

As a certified Federation "hero," Sergeant Ryck Lysander is offered a commission as a second lieutenant. Only, he doesn't feel like a hero, and his tendency to jump into a fight himself is at odds with his mission as a junior office. Accepting his commission might have been a big mistake.

When contact with an alien species is finally made, that contact is not peaceful, and Ryck is thrust back into combat, combat that does not end well and plunges Ryck into an emotional crisis. Thrown the lifeline of transferring to Marine Reconnaissance, where he is back to being a fighter and not responsible for as many subordinates, this is Ryck's last chance to determine if he has what it takes to be a leader of Marines.

Lieutenant is the third book of Ryck's service as a Federation Marine.

Very enjoyable book - especially for military

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I enjoyed the book. I especially found it interesting having served in the Marine Corps for 24 years. The author does an outstanding job applying actual military culture to science fiction. Very detailed discussion of weapons.

What did you like best about this story?

I was able to relate to much of the story line as I have observed outstanding Marines make this somewhat difficult transition to Lieutenant.

What does Daniel F. Purcell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I spend several hours per day commuting to work. I have listenened to many books in the car. Mr. Purcell does an outstanding job of bringing the story to life while holding the interest and attention of the listener.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

It held my attention from start to finish! Looking forward to #4.

Any additional comments?

Well done - I am certainly interested in future books for this series.

This is a must listen.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely! The story really grabs you and draws you in. The portrayal of the military environment and tactics was right on. You can tell Mr. Brazee served. Mr. Purcell's performance really added to it. His characterizations were very good and the voices and characters were distinct...even the minor characters.

Have you listened to any of Daniel F. Purcell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't but now I'm going to look for his other ones.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I really wanted to but it is almost 9 hours so I couldn't

Any additional comments?

I started this series with this third book but now I need to get the other two so I can see how the characters got to this point.

Never Again''

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Find a Black Hole & Drop this Book into it''

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Daniel F. Purcell?

Anybody, the sing song voice of the narrator destroy any enjoyment that this book may have provided.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Not on your Life

Any additional comments?

Don't waste your Credit. I couldn't even listen past Chapter 3. Who ever makes the decision on the Narrator for this book should be in hiding by now""""
