If you are unsure about this series, take a chance

and you won't regret it.

To be perfectly honest, I sat on the fence about starting this series. I love Larry's other books, but was worried this was going to be purely a tactical, military-centric book. Wow, was I wrong.

The characters are well thought out and you quickly become invested in their lives and actions.

And while there is plenty of tactical, black-ops action here, you definitely get the feeling that something else is building behind the scenes.

Narration ... to be perfectly honest, I was a little concerned about Bronson Pinchot being the narrator. Again, I was crazy wrong in this as well. He does an amazing job at switching between voices. I felt so immersed in the story telling, it was hard to believe that one person was doing all of the character voices. You could easily tell who was talking. But it was more than just character voices, it was also empathetic reading that hooked me. During scenes of high action and pressure, you could hear it in Bronson's voice ... not in a corny way at all, but rather in a hold yourself tightly and stop what you are doing type of thing. During scenes of sadness, it is tough not to get caught up in the emotion as he tells it.

What a great ride this book and the second book, which I highly recommend as well, has been. I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.

Great story, characters, narration, and more

Literally stumbled across this book. I had read Correia's other books/series but wasn't aware of this one. Even though the book is longer (which I like b/c you get more bang for your buck), it doesn't drag on. I could've kept listening so I'm glad there's a sequel. The story keeps you guessing and takes you down several twists/turns as you try to figure out the bigger picture. Plenty of action and emotion is delivered throughout the book as well.

Enjoyed the narration and have listened to Pinchot in Correia's other series so I knew the quality would be great. He does an excellent job of managing multiple characters, personalities, and genders which is not an easy thing to do.

On to the sequel!
