You can't get too upset when something is free, it just cost your time. It was a good way for me to find out I don't want to continue the series. The writing is a little stilted. The characters are card board cut outs. The story is old hat. If you like Gordon Dickson, you will love this.
I hope the whole series is not read by this narrator. He reads in a very sing song way, which I found distracting.

Take care here readers, there might be a story in here, but you will not be able to enjoy it with the incredibly bad narration. I deeply regret my failed attempt to make it through this short introduction to the series.
Ray: I know you don't speak anything like this in your life. And you have never heard anyone speak like this. How did this book make it out into the world without anyone mentioning that your use of falling intonation renders the book into an unbearable experience?
Steve: Get this redone. Please. I want to experience the series, but as it stands, that is not possible.
Audible: Letting this happen hurts your brand.

I enjoyed this - a bonus that it was free but I thought the performance was good and the story entertained me , even if it was pretty obvious what was going to happen.
I'll consider carrying on with the series.

Well read, a gripping story. Recommended read. A good basis for the series. Looking forward to the rest of them.

If I was reading it, it would have been a page turner! :)
Not usually accustomed to listening to military intelligence style, action packed Sci - Fi but definitely worth a listen! It's free so why not?!
I knew the lingo pretty well due to a military upbringing. Therefore, I found I could follow the story & plot well & also appreciate the authors research (and/or his background?), into military language, tactics and so on. This gave the it a convincing & genuine feel even though it was set in far into the future. However, watching a hell of a lot of this genre helped too! :)
Nevertheless, even if you're not used to this genre, the narrator Ray Chase, read extremely fluidly, with excellent articulation & rhythm at the right moments!
Am thinking now to read the whole series so nice work! You've succeeded to suck me in. Hehe. :p
