Summary

Did you ever wake up wondering where you were…and perhaps equally important, how you got there? Yeah, me too. The only the thing is, it usually happens when I've been drinking…and I'd been dry for the better part of two years. I'm Commodore Jeremy David Riker…my friends call me JD or just plain “Dog.” I have the dubious honor of running a starship boneyard in the middle of nowhere.

Enjoyable sci-fi military story

This book was a bit different in that it was military battle, alien cultural interface and soul searching.

A man and woman from Earth find themselves abducted and cloned to assist and alien culture fight a war with an unknown enemy. They choose these people since they believed they would have a better ability being more generalized than the races that each had a specialized role in their society.

The action was good and the situations were complex. The interpersonal relationships were also interesting. A fun listen and very enjoyable. I look forward to the sequel.

The narration was outstanding. The characters were distinct and the voice range remarkable.

This book was provided free of charge with expectation of an honest review.

Fantastic narration for a space opera

Space opera meets military fiction in this non-stop action tale. The narrator of the tale is a naval officer who was banished to a spaceship boneyard on the outskirts of the solar system. He's jaded and spends his days with his team drinking and scrounging for useful junk. Then, out of the blue finds himself recruited to lead a galactic struggle against an unknown enemy (an enemy that's not attacking humans - yet - but other, peaceful aliens). Oh, and there is his wife who left him, and who now has reappeared and is also recruited, so that besides the idea of saving the galaxy, there's saving a floundering marriage - but it works, I actually loved the parallels! There was lots of humor, some twists and surprises, androids, clones, aliens, and a great dialogue. It is a good start to what could be an interesting series. What really brought this story to life for me was the narrator. Kudos, Dave Cruse, for making this story really shine!
