I started with this book without having read the first two in the series. After listening to this book, I will probably go back and listen to the others. I was impressed after the first 30 or 40 minutes.
The story focuses on the main character, a female Admiral. In order to find out more about a ship that is intercepting and kidnapping skilled crews, she goes undercover as recently court-martialed and on her way to a prison colony. What she and her fellow prisoners discover is an alien race that while technologically inferior, is of unbelievable size and has managed to create a technology to travel to parallel realities. after being taken prisoner and taken to their reality, she discovers that the aliens that have taken them are part of a small group of the alien race that may not be what they seem.
Along the way, they discover another alien race thought long-dead, but could now be a potential ally against their new enemy.
I call this a "Super Tech Sci-Fi Adventure" because of some of the technology used by the Admiral. While I still liked the story and I found all of the concepts interesting, I thought that some of the tech was closer to magic than conceivable technical achievement.
Also, the narrator was very good, but some of the very obvious mispronunciations drove me crazy sometimes. While she was a good performer, I can't give anything more than 3 stars to her for constantly annoying me. If your not OCD like me, then it probably won't bother you, though.
This was worth the listen, but you don't have to have listened to the other books to enjoy it.
I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Exploration?
This series is entertaining. and well written, An engaging story line that draws you into the next book to "find out what happens".
What does LC Kane bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Would you consider the audio edition of Exploration to be better than the print version?
Yes. I thought that the narrator took us on a great ride through the world created by the author and it swept me along nicely!!
What other book might you compare Exploration to, and why?
I'm not sure. I've not really explored military science fiction before. Maybe Dune? But more in relation to the political and military machinations of the subsequent books rather than the pure science fiction that it started out as?
Which character – as performed by LC Kane – was your favourite?
Catherine was my favourite character, which isn't a surprise as the story revolves around her. The mix of a future world with the idea that humanity has progressed with Christian values is interesting.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
I like the authors tag lines so I would think a movie tag line would also read;
Court-martialled, sent to prison for life, they were the high points, then my day really started to suck.
Any additional comments?
