They call it The Green Hell. A maze of tangled jungle, the planet Makaum is one of the most dangerous places in the universe. And for Terran Military Master Sergeant Frank Sage, it is now home.The war between the Terrans and the Phrenorians rages, and both sides have their sights set on Makaum. If the planet's rich resources fall into enemy hands, it could mean devastation for the Terran army. To ensure that doesn't happen, Sage is sent to assess the Makaum troops and bring them in line with Terran military standards.
But soon after arriving at his post, he realizes that the Phrenorians are not the only threat. Heading up a small but fearless unit, Sage must stop a brewing civil war with the power to unleash a galactic cataclysm unlike anything ever seen.

Fun Romp

This is a fun action story. All kinds of Sci-fi gadgets. Likeable characters. Even some of the villains are likeable. I bought the sequel.

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.
