Publisher's Summary

In the twenty-second century, humanity has journeyed to the stars, and found them open for business. And when it comes to protecting that business, Chief Bridget Yang and Surge Team Sigma - her squad of heavily armed space marines - are up to the task.

Unfortunately, Jamie Sturm is one problem they can’t just vaporize. When Jamie’s financial schemes bankrupt their expedition, Bridget and her crew refuse to let the rogue stock trader walk away. To save their jobs, the soldiers drag him out from behind his desk - and onto a seemingly hopeless mission to the frontier, seeking to open the most dangerous parts of the Orion Arm to trade. But in turning over every alien rock looking for profit, the hapless trader and his reluctant protectors uncover something that endangers humanity itself…

This book surprised me.

Where does Overdraft rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I got Overdraft while on sale solely because it was on sale. To my surprise I thoroughly enjoyed it.

What other book might you compare Overdraft to and why?

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

Overdraft is unusual in futuristic space sci fi in that it has a some genuinely funny parts but it is not a comedy. I would compare it to Firefly.

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

Not a thing. There are great narrators who cannot pull off female voices. Luke Daniels does not have that problem.

Classic Science-Fiction Cheese

Reminds of a straight to TV sci-fi movie. Fun and cheesey and I can honestly say I did not see the twist.

A great science fiction book

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

A great science fiction novel with a unique angle. The trading aspect of the book and wealth of alien species keeps the story moving along at a good pace.

Entertaining light SF

I loved this light, funny SciFi story. Luke Daniels was the perfect voice for this, too. I've listened to this repeatedly, and it never gets old. Just sorry Miller hasn't written a sequel.

Did not bother to finish too wordy monotoned.

Lack story too much description on what they were wearing or shooting and segways too long made it hard to remember the story line.

Enjoyed the story, did not enjoy the Narrator

A coworker suggested I listen to this audio book, as I am a big fan of this type of science fiction. I enjoyed the story, but I would've had a better experience reading the book the old fashioned way. The narrator used an annoying voice for many of the characters (in my opinion).
