Publisher's Summary

The year is 2512, and war rages throughout the Alliance. Warriors are needed, those who have the will, the skills, and the strength to fight this new threat. The cry goes out for battle-hardened soldiers. Like those who fought in the brutal war that nearly destroyed Earth almost 400 years ago. A resurrection program has begun to bring back those few men who had been preserved, and CJ is next. But CJ is no ordinary soldier. He is a war criminal, a man who once fought against humanity. Now they want him to defend it.
The threat to the Alliance deepens further when a nightmarish creature returns from the dead, and with him a new kind of army. Prince Ganbaatar is back, and he wants revenge. If he is not stopped, his vast hordes will be unleashed against the Alliance. He must be beaten at any cost.
CJ awakens in a world that he no longer recognizes. The alien race that created him has united with humanity to form the Alliance. They give him a choice: to lead other military criminals like himself against the terrifying Ganbaatar, or to live the rest of his days behind bars. Posted to a highly advanced and partially organic ship called the Phoenix, CJ's squad must decide whether they will fight for the Alliance or against it. The fate of all civilization in the universe hangs in the balance. The Odyssey has begun!
Battle Beyond Earth, book one of the Phoenix Odyssey series, is a futuristic sci-fi action adventure. It is a standalone story set in the Battle Earth universe.

This might be a good story.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
This story is totally ruined by the narration. Like I said in the headline, it might be good, but it's really hard to get by the narrators silly voices for hours and be unbiased.

Narration needs to be redone

Any additional comments?

This was hard listen for me. While the story itself was entertaining and interesting the narration makes it a hard to listen to. I had to listen to the book in short increments. Having listened to other books by this author I don't understand how this narration passed approval. Unless the story is re-narrated and re-released I would recommend reading it instead of listening to it.

The story is set in the same universe as the authors other stories. The synopsis gives you a perfect description to the overall story.

This is the first time I have listened to a book by Wesley Bryant. He seems to have a nice voice. He has some really great character voices. Female voices don't sound any different from the male voices which makes it hard at times to know exactly who is speaking. The regular narration non character parts did not flow smoothly. Each word was over emphasized and over spoken which effects the flow of the story. You find yourself fixating on the narration instead of the story. The narration should never detract from the story. On the flip side the in character voices were great. You can also tell that a lot of effort went into the narrators work with some of the character voices and sound effects. It looks like this is only the second book he has narrated. With a bit more time and taking into account the constructive criticism from avid audiobook listeners he could turn out to be a really good narrator.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher.
