I feel like I have experienced many elements of this story in previous Frontline novels in some shape or form however, unlike other novels where characters and plot lines can get stale/tedious I enjoyed this book. It was interesting revisiting many of the planets and characters from the previous books after the passage of time and under different circumstances. Overall, I find that I am still interested in finding out how Andrew and Halley‘s story will end, and would really enjoy other stories in the Frontlines universe (e.g. Lazarus brigade, and the future).

This was the slowest book of his I listened to. I understand the first book being slow to action because you have to introduce the characters but this is book six! I would have like to have the action start before the last 4 chapters of the book. Hopefully the seventh book has more combat action in it.

I don’t know why I love this series, but I do. Luke Daniels is as always excellent. I have bought audiobooks just because he’s the the narrator, which is something I thought I’d never do.
I have enjoyed the rest of this series and this book didn't disappoint. I found this series by following Luke Daniels around audible, he is easily one of my favourite narrators and his performance of this book is excellent. I hope the next one comes out soon.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
If you're a fan of the Frontlines series, this book may take you by surprise. The tone and pacing are quite different when compared with previous instalments, and overall it's rather uneventful.There are a number of inconsistencies in the timeline that give the sense that this book was rushed into publication by the editor. For example, the battle at Arcadia is mentioned at having occurred 3 years prior at one point, and later it's recalled as 5 years in the past.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Points of Impact?
The introduction of truly impressive offensive weaponry that is capable of defeating lankies. It showed that human ingenuity, which we so pride ourselves on, continues to persevere in the face of such a formidable opponent.
What aspect of Luke Daniels’s performance might you have changed?
His narration speed. I kept checking the settings of the app as the first few chapters sounded as though he was narrating at 1.5 x speed.Constable Guest's voice also changed distinctly in this instalment.
Any additional comments?
Despite the lack of action, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Marko Kloos has used his platform to put some wonderfully insightful comments about the impact of battle on the mental health of front line personnel.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Short and sweet, good scifi action.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
More of the same stuff, nothing new here, feels like a buffer story as not much is actually pushed forward.
Any additional comments?
Feels like a novella set in the universe not a standalone book. Not much is pushed forward in the war with the lankies which was a bit disappointing. Luke Daniels is brilliant as usual and is an enjoyable book, just craved more.
