This story was billed as a "sci fi romance", and from the sci fi and world building aspect it was done well. The explanations of the world were fairly easy to follow and made sense. The action part of the plot rolled through smoothly for me, and was exciting enough. The hero was properly heroic.
Strangely enough, what lost me wasn't the technicalities of the setting, or the strategies of the villains. It was the romance I didn't really get. There wasn't really a build up in the traditional sense. When the "in love" stage arrived, I was wondering how on earth they'd gotten to that point. Put succinctly, the author told me the two main characters were in love, but I didn't really "feel" that love.
With that huge hunk missing for me, it was still a decent book, and I don't regret listening to it. The narration and editing were done well.
