Coming of age can be hard for anyone. But for Blackmon Perry Stone it is life threatening. At 15, he barely manages to graduate from the empire's cadet training by a talent for unusual problem solving. He has trouble settling into navy life, but life becomes harder when he uncovers a ring of thieves aboard the huge ship. Life becomes difficult when they killed him.
Stone is ejected into hyperspace in an escape pod without hyperspace engines. Fully expecting to die, he reconfigures the sub-light engine to escape the inescapable. To his surprise it works, but only well enough to do little more than crash on an uncharted planet. It will surprise him if he can make the engine work again, but not as much as it will surprise everyone else if he can come back from the dead.

Akward, and a bit aweful
I only listened to a couple of chapters before I had to stop. I like pulp military sci fi, so no issues with the genre. but this was rubish, there was a ten minute period talking about the main characters erection. Seriously. I expect a little sex, but that level of detail was jarring. I got several chapters past that, but it stuck out, pun intended.
Maybe, but more than likely not.
His tempo and clipped words, even the narrator couldn't wait to finish the book. The Instructors voice in the beginning did make me laugh out loud but other than that terrible.
All of them =P
The writing was terrible, like a bad dub of a soap opera, add in an infatuation with an erection it was a no go.
