Very Good Military SciFi

The writing and tempo was mostly excellent and the narrated performance was superb, as I've come to expect from Todd McLaren. However, there was some areas where the tempo slowed while the author provided backstory to the planet's human civilian inhabitants and their matriarchal tribal society.

Overall, I found the novel interesting and entertaining and look forward to listening to the next book in the series.
