Summary

The Coast Guard must prevent the first lunar war in history. 

A lifelong search-and-rescuewoman, Coast Guard Captain Jane Oliver is ready for a peaceful retirement. But when tragedy strikes, Oliver loses her husband and her plans for the future, and finds herself thrust into a role she's not prepared for. Suddenly at the helm of the Coast Guard's elite SAR-1 lunar unit, Oliver is the only woman who can prevent the first lunar war in history, a conflict that will surely consume not only the moon, but earth as well.

Hooked by the end.

A great insight into the US Coast Guard, albeit from a slightly futuristic perspective (which was very well done).

Action from the start, there was also a lot of character and heart; exciting, tense and well-paced, as well as funny, I totally recommend this story and look forward to the sequel.

Exciting Space Opera Diminished by Poor Narration

Myke Cole brings undeniable verisimilitude to this Coast Guard in Space action tale. He’s extrapolated a reasonable future involving Moon mining, international tension and inter-service rivalry.

Sadly, the narration by Mia Barron ruins Cole’s story. It may not be her fault. Perhaps she received poor support from the director and producer.

For me, and I suspect many listeners, the space and military jargon is critical. She muffs words like boatswain (bosun), azimuth (AZ-i-mth) and several more. It’s fingernails on the chalkboard that yanks me right out of the story.

This is an evergreen rant for me. Directors, producers, narrators: Do your homework, be prepared, get it right. It’s important.

So good!

Be warned, once you pick up this book, you won't be able to put it down. Loved the story. Loved the characters. Loved the dialogue. Kudos, Mr Cole, you did it again. You wrote a thriling story with a believable female hero. Jane Oliver was everything I could have wished for

Best USCG Book Ever

This books nails the CG’s relationship with the Navy at a practical. I recommend this book to anyone who is innovating in the military right now, but especially in the US Coast Guard, because the pattern is persistent: the USCG has unique authorities like T14 that are required to headline a free and open society, wherever they exist - regardless of how militarized it gets.

Gripping Space Opera with great characters

The Sixteenth Watch grabbed my attention from the first second and left me wanting more. I especially enjoyed that the story is about the US Coast Guard, which made a welcome change from most military science fiction. If you like military sci-fi, pick this one up.

A Solid Human Story in a Plausible Sci-fi Setting

With a believable main character, a strong crew of supporting characters, and an interesting and dynamic world, this was a quick read. And now that I’ve come to the end, I find I’m wanting more. Surely that’s a good sign.

Fun story, compelling protagonist, shaky narration, questionable physics

Enjoyed this. Picked it because of armored saint, which I loved. Narration was overall compelling but some pronunciations and accents pulled me out of the story.

couldn't do it

the voice of the narrator was off the mark, plot was not sufficient to grab interest
