Publisher's Summary

The long way home
Hammer's Slammer Don Slade is coming home to the planet Tethys, to his son and the woman he loves. But the space between is dark and cold. And the stars he must pass shine their light on planets which beckon to the weary traveler, planets which hold hidden dangers. And if Don Slade should ever reach Tethys... that is when the real fighting starts.
At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management). Vietnam veteran, former lawyer, former bus driver, and now best-selling author, David Drake tells a military story like no other. His readers recognize that he can take them where no one else can, with gut-wrenching description that puts them face-to-face with the enemy, and in the midst of the action right on the battlefield. He helped create the audience for mercenary military science fiction with his best-selling Hammer's Slammers books. Drake graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Iowa, majoring in history (with honors) and Latin. His stint at Duke University Law School was interrupted for two years by the U.S. Army, where he served as an enlisted interrogator with the 11th Armored Cavalry in Vietnam and Cambodia. Drake has a wife, a son, and various pets.

Great performance by the narrator

This book was a four out of five stars for me; enjoyable but not necessarily my favorite of the Hammer's Slammers series. However, the narrator did a fantastic job and really made the story come alive.

Slammers what more do you have to say.

yet another great addition to the Hammer Slammer series. I'm reminded that at the first book I read when I was a child and that's been a while. still the series brings me back to that childhood and the reason why I love Hammer's Slammers.
