Unimaginative plot. Little investment in context using off the peg technologies. A shoot me up story in a very short book with two further parts I won't be wasting money on.
I really enjoyed this book, partly because William Dufris is as usual amazing, and partly because this was just really well written. The plot line is engaging, you hate the bad guys, and the hero isn't so noble as is the case in most of these contemporary sci fi books.
As far as the actual combat I thought they were the best I've read. Better then the lost fleet, and more dramatic. If you like military sci-fi I believe you'll find a lot of enjoyment in this title.

This has a little bit of the attitude from the TV series Firefly. The level of sarcasm is as high as the level of rebelliousness. Ethan is the ever competent pilot caught in an unwanted war just trying to eke out a living while bucking the system. I like the devious war lords and the indomitable warriors fighting tyranny. And, lest I forget, the insectoid alien invaders that continue to threaten to exterminate humanity throughout the galaxy. This book has so many Sci-Fi elements included that it seems more like a television series gone amok than it does an ordinary Space Opera. If I do decide to continue with this series it will be because of the dramatic performance of William Dufris and the sheer fun of the thing.
William Dufris is always wonderful. He put so much emotion into his performance that the story comes to life. I really like his character voices. Other great Dufris audiobook performances include Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson, and Woken Furies by Richard K. Morgan.

It felt like first chapter and part of it was repeated twice.
Story is good, but the space battle didn't feel real.
I enjoyed the story including the twist. The narrator was easy to listen to and his performance was very believable.
