Should have been part of Book 3

Craig Alanson, please don't do this again. Don't take a side story, break it out and charge too much for it. This "book" should have been part of "Paradise." Did I enjoy this entry? Of course. It had RC Bray as narrator and Craig Alanson as its parent. But really, this feels like a wallet-grab. Craig, you have loyal followers. Don't gouge them or they will be less loyal.

As for the story, a nice subplot in the ongoing saga. Not up to the Joe/Skippy narrative, but good nevertheless. Neither Skippy or Joe are in think even. RC Bray is magnificent, as usual. And with this entry we flesh out more of the secondary characters. Perhaps knowing them better will become important in a future installment. I hope so.

Im still a fan. i just wish i didn't feel so dirty.

If you haven't read books 1-3, don't start here. But if you have read them, and you have splurge money, then go ahead.

But this felt like some editor or agent might have said: Take this side story out and repackage it as a standalone. You'll be able to sell it for a quick extra $20. Short-term strategy. Disrespectful to your fans. I'm pissed off that I paid $20+ for this "installment." Maybe $5.95. Really, should have been part of the Paradise book.

And yes, I'll buy the next bull-length installment. I love Col. Joe and Skippy.

Waste of a credit

I've enjoyed the series but this was nothing more than a gimmick. The plot with Joe and Skippy wasn't furthered at all and the book didn't even finish. There were several instances where it seemed the author rushed the story to meet a deadline. Author and publishers owe fans more. I just feel taken advantage of and won't be listening further.

1/2 Book for Full Price... I Felt Cheated

This is a new story arc, so I was barely able to get into it before it ended. While I knew that it was going to be a shortened book, I couldn't believe it when it ended after only 5 hours. I don't mind cliffhangers, but this one felt like it stopped at chapter 3. It felt like I got only 1/2 the book, but paid full price. Really frustrated at that.

It's not like the others

I loved the other books. This I really did not enjoy the story at all. The author is amazing so I don't want to take way from him but it's not worth the credit
