Publisher's Summary

No one is safe during a war of extermination. Especially the civilians.
Rebecca Goldman was a bright and pretty child, a 12 year old with a loving family. Technology allowed them to live comfortably on the most dangerous planet in the Empire, Azure. And then the Ca'cadasans came, and it was suddenly survival of the fittest out in the wilderness. Losing everything, Rebecca has only herself to depend on in a jungle where everything is an enemy.
Cornelius Walborski just wanted to killed Cacas. After losing his wife to the aliens on Sestius, he trains to become a Ranger, the augmented warriors of the Imperial Army. He has never seen anything like Azure, but there are Cacas to hunt, and a mission to perform.
Two unlikely survivors find themselves thrust together, where the man will save the child, and save himself at the same time.

The Heir to Heinlein!

I was so excited to see this book out on audible. I carries the story forward on a new planet with both characters we know and love and new ones in the mix. The war continues as we follow training of recruit through basic, NCO school, and Ranger Training. Then off to a planetary mission. I lost sleep following along in the dangerous jungles as we fight the ancient foe.

Good Side Story for the series

the main character was pretty good though I could have done without the kid in the story. his later books get much better since I prefer the space War.

Different but still a great listen

I'm a huge fan of the series. Really enjoyed this book, even though it takes a change of scene from what went before.

Well written with great characters.
