Summary

Bloodied yet defiant. Legion survivors emerge from the alien onslaught. The fight back starts here...

Lance Scipio and the defenders of Fortress Beta City are cut-off and betrayed. They've proven they can survive, but to liberate an entire continent is a far greater challenge. Costly mistakes will be made, and to survive Lance must rely upon the most dangerous soldiers in the Sleeping Legion - impossible warriors who should not exist.

But whose side are they really on?

Fans of modern military science fiction will relish this fast-paced and realistic series, set in the worlds of the Human Legion.

Space action at its best

I live this series. Totally different way of listening to a story. The voice acting is superb. Totally makes the story. Only reason for not 5 start story is it is see l easy to become a little lost on where you are in the story. Thoroughly recommend 😃

Brilliantly written plot that is unfolding drama

Brilliantly written plot that is unfolding as drama of the characters grow into the horror of warfare and turns through the characters next experience with this. War affects all who fight in ways civilians have not encountered it changes your life and takes you year's to recover from the sights and smells of contact with the enemy its not a video game its terror and shock of emotional overload. Then luck in still standing at the end this book takes you to a place where few go and I are it understands why we fight you do not have to

what happened? TGIF! HAS NEW MEANING

story reverted just when it was getting better in the last book. Geez! Smart leader turns into impulsive overemotional bird brain? Not once but 2 or 3 times? And doesn't get demoted, just his bosses keep getting knocked off. And his friends. No biggie.
plot was disjointed, characters out of character, &/or too cookie cutter, stereotypical, predictable with no rhyme or reason.
Real let down just when Id finally gotten my hopes up!
Did his cat write some of this for him? Arrrghhh!
TGIF! (Thank Goodness It's Free!)
TGIF will never have the same meaning again. It will forever be adopted into the lexicon of book reviews!!

Yet Another Great Book By JR

If you’ve read the first two I can guarantee you’re going to enjoy this one. There’s quite a few more Characters in this one as the story expands.

What an idiot

The main character is so moronic at this point it’s hard to care for him and you kind of wish he would just die so less words are wasted on him.

Inconsistent but great nonetheless

I really like this series. Sadly it seems the author is not producing more audio books. Otherwise I would look into even more from him. There are times in this story where it almost seems to be two or three different authors. It just feels different in places. There are things brought up that then don’t seem to really have an emotional conclusion. Characterization that is off.. Lots of dangling bits here and there. That being said, I have liked this whole series, it is very very recommended, and off to the fourth and last book in the series.

More Action!

Another great installment to the series. The story is getting closer to the end, it feels like. The next book should be interesting.

Starts off Good!

Very hard to follow. The story line is understood. However, the story is soo complex and hard to follow. Having to re-listen to sections just to "try" to figure out who was who. Difficult at best. The main Character "Lance" has been becoming more and more vague. Often not in the story for long periods of time. Disapointing...

I kept getting lost

The story and characters are great. However, I kept losing track of who was who and even when things were happening. I enjoyed it despite this.
