Publisher's Summary

Kate Richmond, former army ranger and ISS operative, has seen a lot in her life. Sabotage, espionage, cyber theft, and assassination missions have all played their parts in her journey to becoming a viper. Nothing surprises her much any more, not even a full-scale incursion of an alien race by the Merkiaari!

When a battle in the Border Zone leaves a pirate ship crippled, boarded by Alliance Marines, and reveals information that links Kate's brother with a dead viper and a bunch of Merkiaari corpses, it's safe to say that she's surprised. It's time for the most important mission of her life.

It's time to find her brother.

    Did you know you can put in a set of Ear-Buds, slap your Hearing Protectors over them, and Mow the lawn, Weed-Eat, etc, without your book being drowned out by engine noise? OR, you can just let the horses in the yard, and THEY'LL mow and weedeat (literally) FOR YOU!

    "drawn out"

    much like the first three books which I got as a bundle this book also feels as though the writer loses track of his intended story I got this book in hopes that it would wrap up or follow some of the plot set up in the other three books and instead it goes off on another tangent following new additional plot without any result to the first three books the characters are great and the overall story is interesting but it just takes way too long and is not closing the gaps I don't know how many books he intends to tell the story over but this is the last one I'm going to purchase

    "Good story, but little progress in the main storyline"

    The author spends a great deal of time on back stories that end abruptly and seem to contribute little to the main plot. Though, it could be the intent of the author to tie it all together.

    Story
    "Waste of time"

    Only the last ten minutes actually progresses the series storyline, and not in a critical way. Five hours is focused entirely on a woman breaking her brother out of prison, and two and a half hours spent on something that would have worked better as a short story. Even the author seemed to get tired of the prison break story (for which the book is named) and cut it off rather abruptly. (I just wish he would have done so about four hours earlier.)
    This book could be skipped entirely with little to no impact on the overall series progression. I feel like the author wasted my time with barely-related stories set in the same universe. This should have been a canon novel at best, or a novella + short story. I don't read military sci-if for a story about a prison break.

    All of this frustrated me immensely and i'm debating whether it's worth continuing with this series at all.

    "Merkiaari Wars, a must listen"
    What did you love best about Operation Breakout?

    Mark Cooper's mastery of the genre and superb writing skills produced a book and series that is riveting


    What did you like best about this story?

    I swear this series gets better and better with each book. I've loved every one. The story line is great


    What does Mikael Naramore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Did not read the book, Michael Naramour is an awesome audio actor. I can't even begin to imagine how he manages to affect each of the character voices so convincingly much less keep them straight and consistent. Listening to his rendition brings the story to life in a way impossible by written word alone


    Any additional comments?

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher

    "books 1-4 good, book 5, made fun of God believers"

    book 1 through 4 were just fine. it is a bit heavy on references to classics the writer liked and to a love of coffee, but book 5 made fun, briefly, of those who believe in God and that really was unfortunate.

    "Bit of a filler"

    Not the best in the series.. concentrated on side stories a bit too much.
    Not so much about the main story line or the main protagonists..

    Story
    "This is the End!"

    I initially purchased the omnibus edition, 1-3, really got into it and enjoyed it immensely.

    Having just finished Book 4, I was hoping to go straight onto Book 5 as Book 4 was every bit as good as the first three. However, Nothing! No Book 5!

    This would not have been so bad if Book 4 did not end in a cliffhanger, but it did and now we will never know what happened, if anything!
