Publisher's Summary

Major Richards needs to get out of the Sol System.

Demoted by the military and hung out to dry, the media labels her the Butcher of Toro. Despite her soiled record, Tanis still one of the best military counterinsurgency officers in the Terran Space Force. They need her to find the terrorists responsible for trying to destroy the GSS Intrepid, a massive interstellar colony ship in the final phases of construction at the Mars Outer Shipyards.

It'll be her ticket out of the Sol system, but Tanis discovers she is up against more than mercenaries and assassins. Major corporations and governments have a vested interest in ensuring the Intrepid never leaves Sol, ultimately pitting Tanis against factions inside her own military.

With few friends left, Tanis will need to fight for her life to get outsystem.

    "What more can you ask for in a sci-fi space opera."

    First of all let me say I had originally read all these books on Kindle, now I'm going back to read them on Audible. As far as the Audible version is concerned, I enjoyed the narrators range of voices for the characters, she brings them to life including changes in Pitch and accompanied with accents for the characters. What more could you ask for in a sci-fi space opera, spaceships, space Marines, Nanotech, A eyes, world building, great character development and a fabulous new heroin. If you enjoyed the strong female heroin types that Mike Shepherd,Joel Shepherd and Michael Anderle have brought us you would love this book. I highly recommend this book I've been reading Audiobooks as for work and play for over 40 years you won't go wrong.

    "awesome space opera with kickass lead gal"
    Would you listen to Outsystem again? Why?

    I normally don't re-read anything.


    Any additional comments?

    Outsystem (The Intrepid Saga #1) by M.D. Cooper is a space opera far into the future with a kick ass female lead character and fun space toys. Lots of action, adventure, high tech space toys and weapons, cool things that is fun to believe could be real, intrigue, suspense, touch of romance, and futuristic AI interface in your head! How cool is that? I found it a lot of fun, I got the audio narration so I could do things and read at other times. Narration was good and added to the story. Will follow this series.

    "Cliffhanger suck!"

    Absolutely love this book, just I'm not too happy with how it ended! I've never been one for cliffhangers especially when I don't have axis to the next book until later!

    "Not my cup of tea. "

    I just didn't find the character relatable. Too much having the right tech at the right time for me. Reminded me of Batman's utility belt.

    Story
    "Annoying, very Annoying"
    What disappointed you about Outsystem?

    why do sci-fi book's insist on calling women in leadership positions Sir, why not Captain or Major. What only Sir's can be in leadership position, how annoying. Also the story is a humdrum confusing blah blah blah


    What could M. D. Cooper have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    is M.D. Cooper a woman or a man, if shes a woman, give women the respect of calling them Ma'am, the constant use of Acronyms is frustrating. For those that are not used to Acronyms, you should write them down for a better grasp on the unorganized Blah


    Would you be willing to try another one of Khristine Hvam’s performances?

    slow down, change you voice for different characters


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

    it was very similar to a series I read all the time, but I would not read another book by this author.

    Story
    "TL;DR Its too easy, wheres the threat?"
    What would have made Outsystem better?

    Some actual threat or danger. I got fed up of hearing how good the main character is, because yeehawh shes the best darn tooting gal in the space army. I don't even remember her name its so boring. Its too much like recent action films where you already know that shes won before anything starts. Oh look shes saved the day again...wooo The "hook" for the story is none existent. Why do I care about a colony ship? Why would I care about a stuck up army brat? Who are these people? WHY THE F**K DO I CARE?! PLEASE GIVE ME A REASON!


    Has Outsystem put you off other books in this genre?

    Sci-fi Military drama yes.Sci fi no.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The scene in the sample clip, actually a threat and how she got round it was interesting.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom and frustration.


    Any additional comments?

    Tech level, yeah I get its supposed to be far into the future but surely there has to be limitations or negatives to all this. "Oh I need a cover? Magic liquid metal over my face thats just removed all my skin on my face. That works perfectly and OH LOOK SHES DONE IT AGAIN WITH NO ISSUES" or "Oh I got injured crawling through a vent. Regrow it" Instead its just space magic. No negatives, no threat, no nothing. Just boring hoo-ra.
