Without spoilers, the story itself was good enough. Hopeless battles, sacrifice, stompy power armor, that good stuff is all here.
I feel, however, that the experience was hampered by a mediocre narrator; characters all speak with one of two voices, neither of which is describably "female", and no attempt at all is made to portray characters who are stated to have accents, with accents. Some words are mispronounced, and the performance is simply lacklustre.

Any additional comments?
I made it 1/4th through the book and gave up. The story might be worth reading a few times like I did with the first book but the performance was awful. The narrator was mostly monotone with all the characters, There wasn't enough variance in the reading to distinguish male from female or alien from human. It was not an enjoyable experience.

Would you try another book written by Chris Kennedy or narrated by E. M. Carberry?
Sorry but no. It seemed to be rather pedestrian faire - flat, B-grade space opera. If you are new to the genre I would try Craig Alanson, Joshua Dalzelle or Joel Sheperd.
Would you recommend Asbaran Solutions to your friends? Why or why not?

First book in series Cartwrights Cavaliers felt fun and unique with decent writing. This book feels like it was written by a High School student who feels the need to explain every detail and emotion with lots of words even though the reader understood what was going on two paragraphs back. Voice acting is also just OK. To be fair the voice work may more be an issue of the material worked with vs actual performance. It's just a bit cringe worthy overall. I would return this audio book if I could as at chptr. 20 I am done and refuse to finish as I have better use of my time.
