OK, so David Weber and John Ringo aren’t going to win any Pulitzer Prizes for this story and so maybe the characters were predictable and so was the story line. So who cares! This was a fun story to listen to. The story kept up a fast pace throughout the whole book. Actually through out all 3 of the books that I heard. This is truly one continuos story line from "March Up Country", "March to The Sea" right through "March to The Stars" and I feel safe to say will carry on into "We Few" (which I will be reading very soon). These books just made me want to keep going through this adventure to see what would happen next. It was basic good vs bad (not evil). Many of the ideas and scenarios developed through out the books were quite clever and unique and the integration of high tech vs pre industrialized Earth society (Though not on Earth) was well done. Though why the bow and arrow never came up is a bit puzzling. I wanted to give these books a 3 star rating but just couldn't because they were so much fun. This was just a good all around listen.

Weber and Ringo do military SciFi about as well as anyone, and this series is no exception. This is the second in the four part series, so start with March Upcountry if you haven't read that yet. The reader is Stefan Rudnicki, whose readings should be familiar to anyone who listens to much science fiction, and he's a good reader. The story develops characters beyond where we were with Upcountry, and kills off a few more, including at least one I didn't want to lose. But other than that, a thoroughly enjoyable read and it's 19 hours long!

Gripping stuff. I got right into the first book in the saga of Prince Roger and this one was just as good. Maybe a tad too much 'soldiering' and 'battle craft' but terrific characters and story. I can't decide now whether to wait for the audio book of part 3: 'March to the Stars' or just go out and buy the novel.

I'm now listening to the four books in this series again. Hi-tech SF, political intrigue and a coming of age trek for Prince Roger and his bodyguard. Put this together with superb authors and a great narrator and you have one of the best buys you could make on Audible.
I've since purchased more audiobooks and books by Weber & Ringo and have yet to be disappointed. More please.
