    The colony world Adirondack and Silvern fell to the Troft forces almost without a struggle. Outnumbered and on the defensive, Earth made a desperate decision. It would attack the aliens not from space, but on the ground - with forces the Trofts did not even suspect. Thus were created the cobras, a guerrilla force whose weapons were surgically implanted, invisible to the unsuspecting eye, yet undeniably deadly.

    A Pleasant Surprise

    I really didn't expect that the focus of the novel would be a study of human nature. But, that is what it was. The combat segments were fast and fur..Show More »

    Nice End to the Trilogy

    Nice story with a twist. Very easy to listen to. Now it's time to listen to the Cobra War trilogy!

    Similar to book one of the series

    It is pretty much the same caliber as book one in the series... with perhaps a bit more jumping between characters as there are 3 different groups inv..Show More »

    Cobra warriors, genetically enhanced and implanted with an arsenal of covert weaponry, are the most dangerous guerilla fighters humanity has ever produced. For Jin Moreau Broom, the war is the culmination of a lifetime of Cobra service. But it is also the height of danger for herself and her family as they struggle to survive a war that none of them ever expected to see.

    Another good book

    This is book 3 in the series but it't ending leaves alot of holes in the story. I typed in Cobra at Audible and to my surprise I found 3 more books.....Show More »

    Cobras are technologically-enhanced warriors bred to fight an alien menace no ordinary human can withstand. At the center of action, on the Cobra world of Aventine, is the legendary Moreau clan. While the Cobras are necessary in times of war, in times of peace, they are often reviled by those they have saved. Now, the Cobras have resisted a second invasion of the alien Troft forces, forcing the Troft to a stalemate - even converting some thoughtful Troft into uneasy allies against their kin.

    What?

    I was totally lost during the three hours I gave this. This is suppose to be book one, but I suspect there was a series before this. I listened to ab..Show More »

    Cobras: technologically enhanced warriors bred to fight an alien menace no ordinary human can withstand. Once the Cobras fought the implacable alien invaders, the Trofts, to an uneasy stalemate. But in recent years they have faced an enemy more insidious, the oppressive regime known as the Dominion of Man. Now, the Cobra Worlds find themselves under the boot heels of the Dominion, forced into what amounts to slavery, living under martial law. But two clans of Cobras - the Moreaus and the Brooms - will not stand idly by.

    Overall very good.

    I liked the book and it fits with the series. I did think that a turn at end was out of left field. Over all good listen.
