Summary

The brutal war of extinction enters a horrifying new round as the cyborgs arrive from the Neptune System, in this, the third book of the series.

The Highborn are remorselessly crushing the obsolete Homo sapiens. Gambling with humanity’s existence, Supreme Commander James Hawthorne attempts to lure the dreaded Doom Stars into a trap. Social Unity’s combined Battlefleet is the bait. The cyborgs are Hawthorne’s secret weapon.

Unfortunately, for Marten Kluge, a vast space battle threatens to take place around Mars. And that is exactly where he and Omi need to go to refuel their stolen shuttle. To reach the Jupiter System, they will need more than luck and Marten’s stubbornness.

Battle Pod is the story of long-range beams, stealth-capsules, and survival of the fittest in a techno-battle hell. Battle Pod is a full novel, 93,000 words in length, by Vaughn Heppner, Writers of the Future winner.

Great Series. Book 3 a little Slow. Ended Well.

In Audio format it can be a struggle to remember names and who is talking to who. Especially during complex action and battles scenes. That might be why it felt slow. Still Great and Easily Worth the Credit. kw

Good Story

What made the experience of listening to Battle Pod the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed the story, good flow

Who was your favorite character and why?

Martin - Yearning to be free

Did Ely Miles do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

yes, good descriptive on each character, with the back ground to match

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

n/a

Any additional comments?

I think the narrator would do better reading DVR instructions. Don't enjoy his style. I may be the combination of story and narrator.

Bye Ely.

Adding a soft 'a' to end of words isn't annunciation. It is ignorance and annoying.
The story could be better. Having stellar distances described every 30 minutes grew old

Terrible performance - could not finish the book

What didn’t you like about Ely Miles’s performance?

Mr. Miles performance is terrible. His accents are hard to listen to and inaccurate and his cadence is distracting. All of his female voices sound like they are either terrified or screeching.
