Summary

A king can't defeat an army of lawless pirates. But a mercenary can. 

Logan Conner is the son of a king, the heir to the largest of the five star-dominions, and the best mech pilot in the galaxy. His people are plagued by pirates and raiders, surrounded by enemies, and not even his father can fight them all. Logan gives up his position, his rank, even his name, and becomes Jonathan Slaughter, leader of a rough-and-ready band of mercenary mech-jocks bent on taking the battle to the enemy on their own terms. 

They’re Wholesale Slaughter. Kicking ass is what they do. Get book one in this thrilling and unpredictable military sci-fi adventure today!

OK.

It started off well and I was keenly following it. But, after the halfway point, I felt my interest going and just managed to finish the story. This one really wasn’t for me.

They're not smart but they're clever.

A distant future where humanity has spread into space and devolved into waring factions, with five major dominions and numerous small, independent communities, pirates and mercinaries. Over time, the origins have been lost as has much of the technology, what remains being mostly replicated without full understanding of how it works. Then Sparta, one of the more powerful kingdoms, retrieves a corrupted radio transmission which appears to come from the old World preceding the current political situation and with it the promise of forgotten technologies which might give their society an edge in their battling. But to get there means crossing hostile territory and time was in short supply - someone else might find and decipher the message. So a single ship, disguised as a mercenary, is launched into the journey under the command of the Sparta King's son, Logan, given the new identity of Jonathan Slaughter.

This, the first book in the new series by author, Rick Partlow, establishes the mercenary ship's crew and the reason they have all come together, plus the first of their enterprises to establish their mercenary identity. Presumably, there will be more such adventures to come as well as further character development of the main protagonists, although this has already started well. Marc Victor narrates, and does an excellent job not only of increasing tension as he reads the text clearly and with good inflection and pace, but also gives appropriate and separate voice to each of the characters. A good performance which is a pleasure to hear.

This is an enjoyable read, full of daring do, fine (and otherwise) sentiments, romance, battles and even mechs, set in a.future of lost greatness and with a slight impression of ancient quests. All in all, a good read. Not profound but good fun.

Nice book

As long as you don’t want something to in-depth this book is fine.
The narration is good the story is ok.
It just felt like something was missing.
It kept me entertained enough to finish the book, so that’s a good thing.

boring. just plain boring.

it felt like a copy and paste from other space stories, from the expanse to expeditionary force. the story never made sense, technology lost yet they have space travel. just couldn't understand the world of the story.
