Publisher's summary

When special operations veteran DJ Markis finds armed invaders in his home and it all goes sideways, he turns to his brothers in arms to fight back. On the run from the shadowy Company, soon he finds himself in a war for possession of a genetic engineering secret that threatens the stability of the world.

But who is behind it all - and are they even human? Beginning in the world of today, Eden Plague is a futuristic thriller that launches the Plague Wars/Stellar Conquest series, eventually spanning hundreds of years of ground and space warfare, from hand-to-hand combat and covert actions, to Space Marines and interstellar battles.

I felt so disconnected from the story

This one was the most difficult book that I’ve read, or in this case listened to, in a long time. I felt so disconnected from the story. The good thing about a book is being able to go back in a paragraph or page if you’re not catching something, but with audio, it is much more difficult if you miss something.

That said, I feel like I missed an entire book. I did not resonate with any of it. I thought I would really enjoy it since it is dystopian but I did not connect with the characters. Had I purchased the book and not requested it I probably would have set it aside. Well, I did set it aside, multiple times, but kept going back to it so I could get the audio review done. Nothing worked for me other than the audio was perfect and the narration was great.

This is much more militaristic than I imagined. That may have been my first hiccup. The way the Eden Plague actually works was very interesting and did peak my curiosity for a while, but then I would lose my place and get mired in the lack of wanting to read it!

So, in short I chalk this up to this book just not being for me. I think someone that enjoys Sci fi with a militaristic view would love this. The ending was rushed a bit but overall it wound up okay.
