Publisher's Summary

An attitude? Why not? After all, what would you do if you were abducted by aliens and transported into a strange new universe away from your home, your family - everything familiar to you? Would it make you happy? Not likely!  

Now imagine you're stronger, faster, and more coordinated than every alien species you encounter. Would you start kicking some ass? Of course you would!   

This is the story of human superiority in the galaxy, a gritty, realistic profile of a young Navy SEAL who doesn't like aliens very much - and he makes them pay for the bad mood he's in.

ive been waiting for this series. but...

story is good and light.something i can put on and listen to while i drive from job to job. i want the whole series on audible. a problem is the narrator. great voice and easy to understand. however the human voices are the most alien or pompous in the book. when i read the book the character's voices in my head where much more relatable.

Voice characterizations are way off

I've read and love the entire series, so I was happy to see and Audible version come out. Mr. Sanda's narration is fine, however the voices he chose for Adam Cain and Riyad Tarazi are way off. I can see where someone might read the books and see Adam Cain as larger than life, and give him a voice to match. I guess I just never imagined him as sounding like The Tick.
Riyad Tarazi is a tall, handsome smooth operator, and not an Orc from LOTR. I've listened to many audio books where the actor's interpretation of the character's voice doesn't match my own, and that's fine as long as it doesn't detract from the story. However, the voice for Tarazi was so bad that I had to stop listening. As I said, everything else was fine, but those two characters were like nails on a chalkboard.
