Summary

Death of a world, birth of a marine....

By any reasonable definition, this was a bad day. My parents and sister were on Mars when the planet died. I watched it happen and could do nothing. That type of thing changes a man.

Any additional comments?

Nearly eight years after his home, his parents and his little sister died when life on Mars was destroyed, Anthony Grant Stone, one time surfer and out of control youth, joins the marines. He survives boot camp and prospers. This is his story.
Not an altogether new theme but engaging, nevertheless, with some neat twists to the training. Well characterised and written, it opens the way to a new series which promises to be most enjoyable.
Narrator Adam Gerber is excellent, really becoming Stone, the boy becoming man. He really assumed the persona as well as differently voicing all of the other characters with an authenticity which brings them very much to life. Only one exception: one of Stone's friends, another recruit nick-named JJ, is British, but the accent on the audio most certainly is not. But this is a small quibble and the resultant voice is certainly distinctive and consistent.

I very much enjoyed Beary's book, Stone Cold, the first of the Infinity Brigade series, but stand alone in it's own right, and look forward to hearing the next, Stone Hard.
