Fantastic Story

I really enjoyed listening to this audio version of the Shadow Corps. I think if people find themselves a bit confused it possibly might be that they have read or listened to the Syndicate Wars. This story has a light bit of a lit-rpg element to it, which I find as a nice touch to the story. Looking forward to when book 2 comes out in audio.

Favorite narrator, book not so much

This book has an amazing set of 5 star reviews on Amazon, but I do not get it.

So first, the narrator, Tess Irondale, she is great.

I would say spoilers, but I am only a couple chapters in so I am not sure if that counts.

So, we have a teenage protagonist who of course is crushing on an older male. The fact he is older does give her issues apparently, but not so much she does not have a crush on him we are told. We are reminded of this crush throughout the opening chapters as the main character is constantly distracted by said crush during a military operation of which she is a key team member.

She has magic, but it is not magic it is science, but works like magic? Everyone thinks she is crazy, and she kind of thinks she might be crazy too. This topic takes up most of the rest of her focus while she is on this super important military mission.

Anyway all of that does not matter because the protagonist is teleport-ed? I am not actually sure as she suddenly appears on a ship in space, but maybe I just glazed over during the explanation. Anyway it is on this ship she is to join an elite team that will save, not the planet, not the solar system, not the galaxy, but the universe. It is hard to quantify how large that is, but it might be more comprehensible than the plot so far.

This is one of my key complaints at this point. The book has no idea what scale it is operating at. I have no sense of where the characters are and not in a cool and mysterious way either.

So they have some lunch where we find out about an alien female team member who is really beautiful and makes the protagonist uncomfortable. Apparently her species is in a war between genders, why? Well apparently if you do not need the other gender to procreate then the default choice is to go to war. Sure, it is sci-fi right? The thing is this detail is just kind of dropped in there and then it is off to lunch.

Then we have a fight at a gate? A gate where? A gate to where? The fight is there because there is a traitor to their cause, which is a mystery, except for the fact that ever single member of the captains species fights for the other side?

If this review seems confused it is because I am confused trying to follow this book.

Maybe I will give it a try on Kindle Unlimited.

This book started off so good, then the more it we

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes and no

What was most disappointing about Justin Sloan’s story?

Trying way too hard, you didn't get to know the characters all that well.
