Summary

Surviving, having survived, comes with a body count.  

Jonathon Hunter has evoked the wrath of 27th-century pirates. With his sexy twin bodyguards, Jonathon seeks to come to grips with station life in a suddenly hostile universe.  

Celebrity, gratitude, sudden attacks, and a mysterious prophecy are more than most 18-year-olds can handle. A reluctant hero, Jonathon is on a journey, seemingly out of his time, but always in time.  

Meet Jon Hunter as he starts a two-year journey to prophecy, with his AI sidekick and mostly female mercenary team.  

This is a rollicking coming-of-age story of life in space, fighter- and ground-combat action, and surviving the consequences of surviving.

Good but could be better

This is the second book of this author that I've read and I think he needs to focus more on the depth of the characters because they seem shallow for my taste. The story has potential and maybe the next book will shed light on some big holes in book1.

Brilliant 1st book in a great series

Read the ebook twice then noticed the audible version came out last week so I had to get it.

Even better in audio than ebook and the ebook is great.

I don't spoilers, just whether book and narration is good or not. Narration is really good but a tiny bit lacking in RSVP, Rythm, Speed, Volume & Pitch. Mix those properly to project a voice and give it the required umph when necessary and all that good stuff that makes a narration able to be listened to. A little bit more variance and a little less mono. Actually I could listen to the narrator easily but I'm a bit of a nitpicker in this. It in no way detracts from a full 5 star book.
Now you just need to get busy with the other 12 books in the series as I'm already eager to listen to those as well.

P.S. Already pre-ordered Yesterday's SpaceMage and eager to listen to that also.

Interesting world so-so characters, good narration

I liked the world. Interesting concept. The issue is the characters. The main character is more the wet dream of an 8-year-old. None of the other characters are fleshed out at all. The world is made to be a backdrop that fawns over the main character regardless of what corny one-liner he comes up with. From a 16-year-old to acting like a 32-year-old vet. To be honest, this whole book plays out like a dream of some person, 2 dimensional with an MC that can't do any wrong.

I will not be following up on this story and I cannot recommend it unless your humor matches this author. I may check his work in a few years to see if he develops his style any, the world itself that the story is placed in seems interesting enough.

And the narrator did a fine job.

A Sci-fi Geeks fantasy- and I love it anyway!

This review is for the whole series..... So much fun! even if it is an old geeks teen fan- boy fantasy with everything from 1960's sci fi and games to transformers and lord of the rings to meditation and the kitchen sink thrown in. Teens wont get the old computer and game stuff but will love the almost all girl army. and dont forget the cat. The story is full of holes and I don't Care! I love the carictures and enjoyed seeing Jon come out on top and build his fantasy world. Wouldnt I love to do something like that. So who cares if it isnt realistic. THe Narrator is good. Its fun. Its entertainining. it makes me smile and I will buy every one of the series. but please make them longer....I'm poor.
My only complaint is the books are too short!!!!!

Space in Hindu mixed

Starts off to be pretty good but then it goes into spiritual Hinduism. Trying to teach meditation Hinduism. If we just stick with space character development and realistic practicality it would’ve been a much better book. I believe the writer has the foundation to write better just needs to stay away from religion
Ok

Entertaining

I picked this one up somewhat on accident. I generally like books that are a little longer but was surprised how much I enjoyed listening to this book. The main character is a bit overpowered so if you are looking for realism is one probably won't work for you. I enjoy the combat scenes but but definitely didn't look to deeply here. Again I think it is a good start for the series and will listen to the rest.

Awesome

As a long time fan I was excited to hear about the series becoming an audiobook. Now that its hear I am not disappointed. The narrator is great and really bought the characters to life. Of course the story is awesome I can't wait till the next one.
