The Earth died when aliens rained thermonuclear warheads on her cities and sprayed the surface with a bio-terminator. A deadly poison drifted to every corner of the planet, threatening the last survivors with annihilation.
For a soldier in Antarctica like Creed, there is only one way to keep breathing untainted air. He must bury his hatred of the extraterrestrials and join the Jelk Corporation as an assault trooper, leaving the planet for outer space. In return for his and other people's services, the corporation will house the last humans for as long as the assault troopers keep winning.
For the price of living and the chance to save humanity, Creed has to wear a shock chip in his neck - Jelk discipline is harsh - and he has to don a symbiotic battlesuit that feeds off his sweat. Human life is cheap in the vast alien war. The assault troopers are little more than suicide soldiers, but for humanity to escape extinction, they must survive. But Creed didn't agree to the bargain in order to remain a dog to the aliens. He has a plan, and he'll need all his cunning to beat these star born bastards and begin the road to freedom for the human race.
Assault Troopers is a tale of human extinction and ultimate desperation, written by bestselling author Vaughn Heppner.

Ranks in the high middle zone. How about 14.25 out of 20?
I will compare this book to The Battle of Heligoland Bight by Eric W. Osborne. They are totally different and have absolutely nothing in common except that they both concern humans and how they act in adverse situations. As I have said previously - Stupid question Audible!
Christian Rummel gives an edge to the main character that works well. Also, I dig his female character voices. When I heard Jennifer's voice I had a flashback and thought I was in Dauntless' bridge in Jack Campbell's Lost Fleet series. Rummel is a pro. He made a pretty good story into a solid good story.
No extreme reactions. I did get saddened when the main character and Jennifer, fresh out of the sweaty sack, travel into a German city. Buy book for more info. I laughed at least 9 times toward the end when one of the central characters opts out of the evil camp and fights the good fight. Solid dialogue.
Give this book a shot. Picks up nicely in the latter chapters.
