It is pretty much the same caliber as book one in the series... with perhaps a bit more jumping between characters as there are 3 different groups involved here. We spend a chapter with one group, then the point of view switches to another group... this sometimes feels a bit abrupt, but it's a good way to see the same "battle" from different perspectives.
Otherwise, it is a military sci-fi book where the military action is all "on-planet" (no space ship battling). There is probably a bit less personal drama (i.e. less about Mom's health, or about the family being apart) and a bit more interaction with alien species/planetary life. Though, to be honest, the aliens aren't really very alien... they are occasionally described in a manner that makes them seem alien, but for the most part, their vehicles, weapons, doors, stairs, ships, etc, are all human-familiar or human-usable.
I did like the story as much as the first one, even with the jumps between the different main characters, but I disliked the ending a bit more - it felt like it was just stopped. There wasn't a cliff-hanger, but the ending still felt sudden... I even checked the download file to make sure it hadn't been accidentally truncated.
The narration is good. There is some non-graphic violence, no swearing and no sex. I bought the next book in the series as I enjoy this type of action-packed, non-moralizing, military sci-fi romp.

The story with the narration kept me listening for hours at a time! I can't say why but I realy licked the book. Some action and lots of Drama.
