It's a good story with a plots inside plots growing with each chapter. I enjoyed the characters, the believable science, and personal conflicts.

This is the first audio book that I've listened to which incorporated ambient sounds in the background, and I gotta say I'm a huge fan of this integration. It helps set the scene perfectly when characters are aboard ships, in the forests, at the coastline, etc.
The voice acting is also spot on. Everyone has their own unique voice and their personality traits are reflected within. One element that stood out to me is the effects applied when characters are communicating via electronic devices. It's hard to describe, as you can tell who a character is by their voice, but it sounds as though it is coming through an ear piece, which only adds to the experience in a positive way.
And as for the story, it is very enjoyable and keeps you engaged. There are a lot of factions in play, so you might find yourself like me and having to rewind sometimes to get reacquainted with what is going on, or replaying the introduction to remain familiar with the factions' history.
For readers such as myself, having an introduction which provides background material on the various groups in play and their histories is quite handy for a story incorporating this many parties. I am looking forward to more works by this author.

The story has great pacing and the characters are well written. Action, mystery and a dash of war keep the plot moving forward. I had a great time listen to this. The interactions between the characters are well done. The setting is mostly a standard space bases sci-fi with a few of its own unique bits added in.
The narration is good, clear and easy to listen too. Each character is given a unique voice with both distinct personally and emotion. The narrator does a great job keeping the action tense and the story engaging. The background sound effects they use are done just right, enough to add to the listing experience and not disturb or pull you away from the story.
All in all well worth a listen. I hope they do a book two.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
