Publisher's Summary

For more than a century, Winged Hussars has been the richest of Earth's mercenary companies, as well as the only one to specialize in space warfare. Led by Alexis Cromwell, they have carved out a reputation in the galaxy for being dependable, unflappable, and lethally efficient. Until people began shooting at them everywhere they went.

Rick Culper left Earth in the hopes of finding a job as a merc. A natural at fighting in the armed suits known as CASPers, he finally caught on with one of the premier Four Horsemen companies, but it's with the Winged Hussars, and the company's prospects are beginning to look bleak.

Traps have been laid throughout a number of systems, and Commander Alexis Cromwell and her flagship, Pegasus, will be hard-pressed to make it back to their secret base. Even with Rick's help, the situation is much worse than anyone in the Hussars could have imagined. The Four Horsemen are being hunted, and the Hussars's future is dark. But there's one thing Alexis's enemies didn't count on - Alexis Cromwell is nobody's prey.

Even Better than Cartwrights Cavaliers

The author mastered Ground pound, mech combat in book 1. Now He mastered Sci-fi tactical space battles.

It is truly impressive That a scifi novel can be so good without the Earth is under Alien threat! We must save HUMANITY! angle.

I would love to See a Revelations Novel where the Earth is Under attack by a fed up Alien Alliance who just couldn't seem to take down the 4 Horsemen.

The 4 Horsemen must Combine Arms... omg, chills, All Of Earth's fleets Commanded By Alexis Cromwell. Marines and Armor corps commanded by Jim Cartwright. chills. With Enlightened Tortanrulan shock troups Led by Ort. To save Humanity, Serious thousand Ship skirmish lines, with all of that Fancy, brilliant, Inertially crunchily satisfying Winged Hussars Space engagements. Sacrificial Shield Ships crewed by retirees who would die to see their grandchildren safe. lol, Hey, why not? Right? It is not a crutch or a trope, saving Humanity is the essence of Sci-fi, Ender's Game anyone? throw in Raunchy sex. Jim's friend with the brain damage should have banged everything. including the Bear People, the Mantis People, He could have discovered He could only feel by engaging in sex, The more garrish and weird the more He could feel. Push GiGi out of the saddle and give it a Go! would have been funny, the acts if Xeno Matings and rejections, and the ribbing the Humans would have given Rick.

Please lose Asbaran Solutions in a Wormhole while this happens.

Love series, but narrator let's this one down!

I loved the first two books in this series, but I struggled with through this one. The narrator is very monotone and has about two voices. The men all seem to sound the same and vise versa the women. if the narration is the same for the next book I don't know if I will be purchasing it. It might be better to read the kindal version of the next book, or better yet this one!

Good story bad narration

I'm sorry but mark Hinton really detracts from the book, his reading is ponderous at best, darn near impossible to listen too at times. His character variations are virtually non existent. I love this universe and all the previous books but am only going to read any future books preformed by Hinton.

Like the first book, thus one is excellent.

The second book was lacking in several areas, not horrible but not as good as 1.

Great world

The author did a great job telling a solid story in an extremely complex world. Action was also first-rate.

good story.

book is great, recording needs some work though. there are parts scattered throughout that sound like a completely different person is reading, then a few seconds later it's back to normal.

The narrator was awful.

The guy can’t pronounce the “tton” in the word button, and the word is used a lot. It’s not even just buttons but seemingly any word that has a t in the second half of it. His speech impediment takes you out of the story. The story itself has quite a bit of techno babel, the alien characters names get confusing, and the voice the narrator uses for the Rick character sounds like he’s mentally disabled.

Where did they find these narrators?

These books could have been made much better if their narration didn’t so closely resemble a parent reading to their children. As it is, I have not found any of the first three more than barely tolerable due to this problem. I also have a problem with anyone who pronounces “nuclear” as “nucular”, which sounds ridiculously uneducated.
If the authors are reading this, please choose your narrators with better care for future writings unless your subject is a children’s book.

Two strikes and a home run.

Another good thread in the Revelation cycle, looking forward to the next book to finish the introduction of the universe. Voice over could have been much better. The voice actor wasn't very dynamic, and there are jarringly clear instances where recordings on different equipment or settings were spliced in, and not to artistic effect.
