Cannot wait to read the rest of this epic saga!

Between Terry Mixon's writing and Veronica Gigeure's narration this really sucks you in. Great characters put into crazy situation after situation. Kelsey Bandar and Jarad Mertz may be two of the best characters that I've read/listened to in quite a while. Looking forward to reading/listening to more of this series.

WOW!!!

I've read the books numerous times. Actually, I reread them every time a new book is published. While reading them myself is best, these audible books are great.
Once again, great job Terry!!!

Slow to start but a fun ride after the hook is set

Ill be completely honest, I had a really hard time getting into this book at first. The thing that baffles me the most is that all the right elements were there. Decent characters, an interesting scene to open with and no lengthy exposition dump in sight. Still though I had to keep coming back to it time after time and couldn't seem to get into it for more than 10 to 15 minutes at a time. I am however glad that I did work through it as when the book finally caught my interest it definitely kept it and from there on out it wasn't a problem at all. I don't know if everyone will have this initial hump to get over or it just hit me wrong but give the book a chance and I'm sure that you'll be glad you did.

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Classic Sci-Fi in the best sense of the genre

This is an omnibus volume with the first three books of the saga. It is followed by an included short story that comes with a spoiler warning - do not read the short before book 4 which is not included in this set?
I really enjoyed this saga and will certainly look into getting more volumes.
Well written and narrated. Thanks Terry and Veronica!

should have listened the sample

This is the first book ever I won't be finishing due to the narration and the story so far.

I feel like the intonation of the lines the narrator uses completely miss the mark. instead of the regular feelings I get from listening it felt confusing because the emotions in her voice didn't correlate with what was being said.

The attitude the crew of the ship had didn't seem military at all and it bothered me.

I realize it's my fault for not listening to the preview but whats done is done.

Can't listen through it

So, I haven't even finished this book yet, but I had to say something. It's interesting so far, and I have no problems with the story line, I actually like a lot. However, the reader keeps on making the wrong inflections. It's mostly subtle, but once I started to notice it, it continued to bother me until I just couldn't anymore and had to take a break. I first started noticing it when the author explicitly stated that the character said something in a toneless voice and then the reader proceeded to read the dialogue with a nervous inflection. this happens thoughout the book, or at least the parts that I listened to, being most noticable in spots where the character should have been firm and professional and instead had some sort of nervous, angry, etc. tone.

Great series

I have the pleasure of reading these books when they was first published, and have just finished the first three books. I fully recommended these books in either audio or text. Looking forward to downloading the next three books.

Fan of Weber? check this one out!

If you are a fan of Mutineer's Moon by Davir Webrr then you will love this, its even better.

The performance is one of the best I've listened to.

Awesome

I already own the individual novel, and I loved it. I bought this for the special addition at the end. The bonus content alone makes it worth the money. Buy the e-book and audiobook.

Slow start, but builds well

The story took a bit of time to draw me in, but when it got going, it kept me there easily.

worst narration I've ever come across

the narrators rendition of the princess should be deemed torture by the Geneva convention. honestly tried to give this book a fair go but just couldn't get past the terrible voice acting. definitely listen to the sample first before you dive into this car crash of a audiobook.
