In Renegade, Shepherd starts a new series that should be classic space opera. It's not. Strong characters, both male and female are a welcome highlight here. On top of that, his space battles rock. His descriptions of the movement of the ships, the punishing forces and multiple directions of force, and the way it might be to try to be a human amidst all of that are brilliant and refreshing. This is the second series I've read from Shepherd. His first book, "Breakaway" was a fast and fun but a bit juvenile. That series got better and more mature as the author did and by the end of the series was some of the best science fiction I've read in a really long time. "Renegade" starts off with that maturity of skill and subject matter and combines a really well considered world. I loved it.

Ok, there is another review with the tittle of "politics" on top. That other review gave this book 1 star rating. This book is a 5 star easy.
If you are a reader, chances are you read treasure island. Do you remember how boring the introduction to the book was. But then, the journey for the treasure gets on its way, the story grips you and doesn't let go until the end? Ok this book does the same thing with the only difference that it grabs and takes u on a smart, well thought out thrilling, action packed adventure that last all thru the three books in this series. He author introduces the characters and their backgrounds and sets up the background for the galaxy in which they will Interact. So yes, the first third of the book will be slow, but once that rollercoaster gets to its apex, you better hang on because you are in for....
One more thing, if you like starship combat ( who doesn't right?) you will love this book. Its combat scenes are fresh and original with a different take on the combat mechanics. Do yourself a favor and read this book.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Excellent listen. More volumes please. I need to know what happens next. You can't leave the story unfinished!

Although I enjoyed the story, the narrator sounded like someone from a 1950's Amateur Theatre Company and it almost ruined it for me.
