Publisher's Summary

The human race is about to be without a home, Earth having been turned into a toxic wasteland by decades of war and centuries of neglect.

Now united and desperate to put down new roots, humanity sets off across the galaxy. But the galaxy isn't as hospitable as people would like.

Humanity needs a miracle to survive against the first alien race they encounter. Good thing they have that miracle in the form of a team of 30-foot human-piloted battle robots known as the Mech Corps!

    If you could sum up Mech Corps in three words, what would they be?

    None stop action


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mech Corps?

    finding the right planet only to discover it is all ready inhabited and not prepared to go without a good fight


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    the fight between iron hand and mech one


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    heart got carried away and started the adrenilin running


    Any additional comments?

    "Brace for impact"

    Earth has become almost unsustainable. If new planets cannot soon be found for habitation, the human species will become extinct.. But they are proving far more difficult to find than expected. Until a near perfect alternative Eden is found. Trouble is, there is something already there and it doesn't want invaders. With the advanced team destroyed and communication lost, the Jethro is sent to find out what happened and recover survivors, if any. It is a ship with a bad boy reputation, captained by the notorious Colonel Jala Parveet with her 'Me and Mine' crew and disregard for rules and authority.

    Written in three parts, the reader first meets Parveet and her crew before the arrival at the planet, the discovery of the enemy to be faced, and the ensuing battles. As with all of Jake Bible's books, the fights are vividly portrayed and easily envisaged. The emotional responses are visceral with some breath holding moments. But it is the exchanges between the crew of the Jethro which make this story so compelling, often funny, and with a feel of real people whose lives are so closely bound together in the face of danger. Each is so well characterised, they become far more than mere paper cut outs: they have life, vitality and the sort of joking interactions as well as the flashes of anger that only people who know and care for each other can have.

    Narrator Andrew Wehrlen's voicing of the different protagonists breathes even more life into them, giving each their distinct personality as they speak, and his brisk, but almost offhand, reading of the text fits perfectly with the whole mood of the story. The only difficulty with the conversion of the written to spoken word is the frequency of the 'he said' 'she said' in the longer chatter and discussions amongst the crew; but even here, Mr.Wahrlen manages mostly to overcome the irritation which this can bring to the listener by underplaying these interjections, where possible, and, anyway, what is being 'said' by the protagonists is so enjoyable, such little things fade to insignificance.

    A great cast of remarkable, very human characters in an excitingly unusual environment, make this story a fun and engrossing listen. Add in an excellent narration and it becomes a must read. I was very fortunate in being freely gifted a copy of Mech Corps by the rights holder, at my request and via Audiobook Boom. Thank you. This is an entirely stand alone novel with no obvious indications that it is the first in a series. However, if there should be a follow-up, I will definitely be purchasing it: I already miss the rough and tumble companionship of the Jethro's crew.

    "Good Story"

    If you liked Starship Troopers action then this is your kind of story , instead of mobile infantry we have a political battle for a new home for humanity and mech corp for battles on the ground against a very numerous and robust foe.
    The story is quite good although the very very repetitive use of he said /she said becomes very annoying.
    Narration is good although maybe some more obvious differences in voices would help with the repetitive use of said. Otherwise very easy to listen to.
    After listening to this the first in the series I would definitely go onto the 2nd to see how the characters fare.
    I received this title in exchange for an honest review and as such is my own opinion.

    "fast paced action"

    I really enjoyed this book, the action is intense featuring distinctive likeable characters. I would have liked a little more build up before/during some complicated tasks but I understand that some people probably prefer it this way.

    Even though I received this copy free to provide a non-biased review I will be buying the rest in the series.

    Story
    "Mecha, Monsters, Aliens and Action. "

    Mecha, Monsters, Aliens and Action what more do you want?

    Writing
    This story reminds me of both the aliens and starship troopers films, Jake Bible has put together an interesting sci-fi world with strange dangerous aliens, politics, and mechs. Wail some of the characters do not come across as the most realistic being a little too much larger than life but this has the advantage of making them interesting, fun and well suited to action film style of story. The dialogue fits each character and is not overly drawn out. The pacing is good, the story keeps moving and the action scenes feel fast and intense. This will keep you interested for the whole adventure. This feels like it could be made into an epic computer game or film.

    Narration
    Andrew B. Wehrlen is a great narrator, their voice is clear and easy to listen to for both narration and character dialogue. Each character's voice unique with clear emotions and moods conveyed. They are best at making the characters sound stressed making the dangerous situations for more engaging than the written words adding tension to combat.

    Audio Quality
    All good and no errors I noticed.

    Overall
    Realistic no, fun yes, I enjoyed my time with this book and would recommend listening to it.


    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
