It is only now, after book 4 that I can ignore the terrible accents trying to be Scottish or Australian. The narration is overall not bad at all and the story, caricature development and speed is excellent. I think if I had to choose book three is the best so far. Hope this helps
"satisfying installment in a great series"
A lot of my audible purchases are based on following narrators I like; Luke Daniels is one of my all time favorites. I've stumbled onto more than one new author this way and Richard Fox is the latest great find. His story telling is clean and well thought out, and his characters are engaging and relatable. I've enjoyed alternately cursing and cheering for Mark Ibara. Each novel has had a satisfying conclusion, but the murky background of increasingly complex alien politics and the steadily unfolding mystery of the Xaros' origin and purpose leaves the story plenty of room to grow. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
"Can't get enough"
I'm going through these books so fast, I need to purchase extra credits. I'm always asking what's going to happen next? How are they going to get out of this one? And chuckling at the things Standish says.
"what a twist to another great addition."
Yet again another great addition to this series. This book gives you more in site to the inside of Mark Yeboa
This has been a great series of books. Glad I found Richard Fox and his books.
Great character depth/complexity without getting stuck on inane minor details. Seriously, well done. I care about the fates of nearly every major character at this juncture.
The plot continues to draw me in. Good job of expanding the universe/world without falling victim to having 20 plotlines.
Luke Daniels shines as always. As with R.C. , he could narrate a cereal commercial and have a good chance of drawing me in. Paired with a great story like this.. Enough said.
"Another great story in the series"
The series seams to be one large story broken down into many books and this one will leave you wanting more.
"if anything, it's too short, I want more"
loved it, story is fun and entertaining, characters keep evolving and it adds to the series.
"Very good narration"
Luke Daniels is at narrating giving me any different voices of the characters really bring them alive. I am armor!
Even after the fourth book, I am still engaged in the story. The variety of characters and fantastic voice talent give nice color to a fast moving military science fiction book that sports both space and land battles.
"Need book 5!"
This story just keeps getting better and better. Audible is, unfortunately, missing book five and I am hoping to see it soon!
