'31 Hours and 26 Minutes of Superior SciFi ' pretty much sums up book 4--
It's an awesome addition to the series, well crafted with excellent world-building and character development, with just enough science to ground the series.
Now my Ort's on fire and my quantum tattoo's tingling in anticipation of book 5.
Unfortunately, my Raspani mind enhancer's on the fritz and that's why this review's de-vol-ving.... I now return to my baseline 'meat-animal' status....

This book sucks you into another world and refuses to let go until you get to the end. This is one of the most pleasurable books I have listened to on audiobooks. The narration by Summerer is clear, concise and a real asset to the book. As far as the the story and writing by Bennett there are only two words that come to mind - World Class!

Any additional comments?
The problem with this book and indeed all of the books in this series is the amount of pointless explanation of made up science fiction nonsense. Admittedly, most people who are likely to feel a similar way would have given up at book 1.
I'd say as an estimate, this story could have been reduced to about a third in size and not lost anything from the story. The remainder is just so boring, it's untrue. It would be like a story about Santa going on for hundreds and hundreds of pages about how the sleigh flies, while adding nothing that's entertaining. For this error, I largely blame the publishers who should have cut most of the incredibly detailed, but nonsense explanations out.
There are even some points in the middle of a battle where the human/kobanie side are having long discussions with each other about how things work. Sadly, this will likely be the last Koban related audio book that I listen to because I just can't take the repeated 'tachyon this' and 'third dimension rotation that'. The story part is actually quite good (despite the cheap, done before, shot with politics towards the end of this book), it's just buried below a landslide of 'let's try to explain things that don't actually exist'. And I'm someone who does enjoy science and likes to know how things work...but real things - that's about 20 hours I could have listened to a podcast on physics, biology or chemistry.
