Summary

An elite squadron must go undercover behind enemy lines in this thrilling new space adventure from the author of the Odyssey One series.

Humanity has reached an uneasy truce with the Empire - but unless the allies bring the fight to the enemy, extinction is all but assured. In preparation for the inevitable next war, Commander Stephen Michaels is at the helm of the Archangel Squadron, and his orders are simple: go rogue. 

Disguised as mercenaries, Commander Michaels and the Archangels seek valuable intelligence on their imposing foe. Their mission takes them deep into uncharted territory, where they make inroads with the Empire, fiercely guarding their true identities and purpose. Fighting for the enemy goes against everything they stand for, but these are desperate times. 

As their deception increases, so does the risk. With the Empire’s deadliest secrets within reach, Commander Michaels and the Archangels accept a mission that will take them even deeper into the Imperial fold. They know all too well that one wrong step won’t just end their lives - it could end their entire civilization.

I miss David DeVries

Overall, A great continuation of the series but spoilt by the new narrator. Stephen Dexter's pronunciation of names etc. and his rather jarring take on the characters accents after several books read by David Devries caused me to nearly give up on several occasions. Please can we have a redo with Mr DeVries at some point or maybe have Mr Dexter listen to a few of the earlier series before he does another.

feels like an intro

feels like an intro instead of a book. when it ends, instead of it being the end of the book, it's more like an intermission

Excellent Story, Bad Narrator

Narrator mispronounces many many words. Voices of good / bad characters do not have similar tonality. Narrator seems very unfamiliar with standard sifi terms. If you can overcome this the story is excellent.

What a disappointment!!

I loved this series! The original narrator David DeVries was great! This guy turn me off to the whole book in an hour, I don’t even want to finish it and I will be asking for my money back because of it. I don’t know why y’all changed but it was a very poor decision. I wish the whole book would be redone by Mr. DeVries so I could once again enjoy Evan’s book but not with this guy, once again Very Very Disappointed!!

It feels more like half of a book.

Overall, it’s a good story and I liked it a lot, but I don’t really know about the last 2hours of the book feels unnecessary. And for me it felt like it ends in the middle of the story, so it feels more like half of a book. I’m really looking forward to the next book of this series and hope I don’t have to wait another year for it.
I had some problems with Stephen Dexter voice in the beginning. He narrated the book in slow-motion at the beginning of the book but got into his voce after a while and I think he pick up the pace after a and got in to the storys characters after an hour.

Incomplete

The story was wonderfully incomplete. Enough action and a good story line but then it ended just as I was really starting to get into the story.

Entertaining story. I look forward to continuing the series.

We love all of Evan Currie’s book series and this seems to be the start of another good one. I’m glad the next book will becoming out soon because we were rather left up in the air on this one (my only criticism). His characters and world building are always interesting so it will be nice to see where he’s going with them in the next book.

Terrible Narration Takes Away from Story

I couldn't finish it.

The inability to pronounce characters name is a HUGE faux pas.

Added to this narrator monotone style of speaking.....I fell a sleep. I am so glad I wasn't driving as I normally do when I am listening to a book.

So, this is a definitely a "no" from the Georgia judge.

Great Start!

As always with a narrator change, it is an adjustment. After about an hour I got used to it and he was fine for the rest of the book. Good voice but you could tell it was his first "space" book and had some laughable mistakes. Looks like before this he stuck with cheese ball romance/erotica book so I guess he needs to lean those science words!. The book its self was great. More of a continuation than a new series. This book is a great setup for the series to come. Fast paced with great characters, and all the main characters from the first series are here.I have already preordered the second book in the series.

This book was a lot of fun, great book.

Non stop action and a very good story line, one of the best of the series.

Okayish at best

Changing narrator was a terrible choise, known characters in the series changed gender and background, the primena went from being French desendance to southern USA, pronunciations of citys/worlds are just plain wrong. Sol changing gender made me laugh. Story is short, a lot of intruduction and barely anything of worth happened in the story, seems to me like a publisher took a good book and devided it into 2 to make more money. Don't get me wrong the story has potential and what is there is well written, there just isn't enough substance to call it a "wrap"
