Summary

Sergeant Davis had been in the US Marines for seven years when he stumbled into a knife fight outside the local bar. He ended up killing the wrong alien. Now, as a human who interfered with a galactic plot and killed a Confederation enforcer, his actions sentenced Earth to die. His only choice: desert the Corps and take the punishment on himself.

It seems like the Roswell aliens have been helping us all along. While the conspiracy theorists were right, there are alien lizards wearing people suits. The alien plan is to trick the Earth into breaking a law humanity knows nothing about so that they can sterilize the planet and take it for their own.

Join William Tell Davis, a Roswell alien, and a computer being called Marvin as they save Earth from a plot to destroy it, by creating a secret military force called the Legion.

“Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth”

Enjoyed listening to this space adventure. I felt there’s a lot of explaining and monologuing but the action parts are pretty good and the whole story and background is very well thought out.
There’s an hour or so near the very end where a document is read, which would have been best suited in an appendix as there’s still a short bit of story after and it nearly lost me, but I stuck with it.
Would happily listen to both narrator and author again.
This is my honest opinion of a free review copy.

The US right goes to space

Democrats turn out to be aliens. The right to own all weapons in part of the new constitution. If you’re still inclined, go for it. I found this dull, with a lot of pseudo science details done poorly, politics and organizing a navy. The narrator didn’t have much to work with in terms of action or deep characters, but he didn’t add much. I didn’t get all the way to the end - I skipped 4-5 hours and listened to the last chapter.

It’s unfortunate, because I really liked the general plot line.
