Publisher's Summary

When the Colony on Hayden's world went black, a team was sent to investigate. It was supposed to be a training mission: skip in, find out the Casimir Transmitter had gone dead, report back and wait for resupply from the Fleet.
By the time the only surviving member of the team made landfall, it was spectacularly clear that this wasn't a training mission. Now Sgt. Sorilla Aida has a job to do. She has to gather the local survivors, recon the enemy, train a militia, and take the war right to the enemy's doorstep. Just what she trained for. De Opresso Liber.

Not the best, but better than many on audible

One thing I have come to realize is that audible is full of many so so Sci-fi books that somehow have received decent enough ratings to full even the most relaxed tastes.
I am no critic, nor am I a purist, but what I do appreciate is the truthfulness of an honest review, and I have to say, after you listen to some books on here with 4.5 and 5 star ratings from readers, you may begin to wander if your standards are too high, or maybe theirs are too low.
This is not one of those books. It’s not Hugo award winning and it’s clear that the author isn’t writing with that in mind. Its good military/paramilitary sci-fi with enough intrigue to keep your interest, but not enough to make you run out and get the next book in the series. This is more of an “in-between” series that you read in between waiting for something you are really eager to come out.

Very poor science

I actually tried to return this one halfway through, but failed due to technical difficulty. I ended up finishing it but I did not enjoy this book at all. Poorly written, unbelievable/impossible science. Yes science fiction is fiction BUT when the "science" does not follow the rules of the universe at all it becomes a problem. Example: surviving a nuclear blast close enough to be hit by the pressure wave with only a boulder as protection...REALLY? come on give me a break, you can do better than that! If the story itself was better written I could overlook some liberties taken with reality, BUT the story was none too believable either. Poorly written, poorly developed characters, poor dialogue, overall just poor.
Narration was average but couldn't save the poor writing.
Very sad that there is so much poor sci-fi out there.
