Publisher's Summary

They hunt us. They bomb our worlds for target practice.
A star cluster in the constellation of Orion rotates once every 1,000 years. Those who rule there have an ancient tradition: When each cycle ends, they train their fleets by spilling the blood of lesser beings.
The enemy fleets are coming again. In response, the Rebel Worlds gather their starships to face the terrifying threat, and this time humanity is asked to stand with them.
The last time they considered Earth, Vikings in longboats were raiding English coastlines. Today, we're less primitive. Today, we're a target.
One man is chosen to command Earth's single ship in the Rebel Fleet. When the war breaks out, Leo Blake must win it...or die trying.
"Classic B. V. Larson. This book grabs you by the plasma cannon and won't let go. Fast adventure, fast action - and I loved the space-battles!" - S. Arthur

Overpowered main character, but still a fun book.

Slightly cheesy, but overall this was a pretty fun book. The narration was excellent. The main character was too much of a "Marty Stu" though. He was a genius, fighter, lover, and leader all rolled into one. He banged all the chicks, won all the fights, was a pilot, a fast learner, a shrewd negotiator, just too many 18's on his stat sheet.

But it was a fun read, well written, full of action.

Formulaic but entertaining

Most of the books that I've read or listened to, by BV Larson, have the same characters reworked and tweaked along with very similar plot lines. This book was no different and some of the content was absolutely ludicrous. That said I really enjoyed it. It's fun and I think it's meant to be fun.

The narrator move things along well and it was quite easy to discern between the different characters voices.

So if you're looking for an action oriented pulpy science-fiction spin... without much need for deep thought, I recommend this book. If you want serious science fiction or something a little deeper in terms of space opera, you might look elsewhere. However , I'm hoping for more in the series.
