satisfying installment in a great series

A lot of my audible purchases are based on following narrators I like; Luke Daniels is one of my all time favorites. I've stumbled onto more than one new author this way and Richard Fox is the latest great find. His story telling is clean and well thought out, and his characters are engaging and relatable. I've enjoyed alternately cursing and cheering for Mark Ibara. Each novel has had a satisfying conclusion, but the murky background of increasingly complex alien politics and the steadily unfolding mystery of the Xaros' origin and purpose leaves the story plenty of room to grow. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Great action described with the perfect amount of battle scenes, scifi techno-babble, human anguish and a healthy does of humor

Who was your favorite character and why?

Valdar-strong moral core
mark ibarra-cunning and ruthless in service of humanity
Gaul -she is a badass
toth-wonderfully disgusting and evil

What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

read with feeling and multiple voices helps listeners better visualize the story

Any additional comments?

I don't agree/understand the anger against the tank grown humans and the author's preoccupation with souls; seems anachronistic. While scifi grappling with whether ai is alive/have souls is not new (data, ceylons) , these Procedurals are created with egg and sperm and are unique individuals
