A bit of a teenage boy's..Show More » fantasy. Insignificant plot with problems mostly solved by things outside of the main characters control. Very little science in the fiction. More than a little white knight misogyny with the main character collecting a small Herem and having no emotional depth to his relationships with these weirdly loyal mothers of his children. The beginning was great, really interesting premise... but then it gets a bit dry with some fun (short) action scenes. There is minimal discussion of the culture of the societies that have developed since the apocalypse, the attacking aliens and there is minimal discussion of the infrastructure and economics necessary to restart a space aged US military from scratch. It held my attention to the end for the most part, but I'm not going to listen past this book.
