Publisher's Summary

Nate and his video gamer friends are given the chance of a lifetime, a six-month tour aboard the Alliance’s newest battleship, ANS Dreadnought. She’s the first in her class, and is the most powerful ship in the sector. Bigger and better protected than any ship before her, Dreadnought carries an arsenal of deadly weapons that can annihilate a small armada and can travel between the stars in a matter of days. There is no deadlier vessel in existence.
Two years at the Academy has tested Nate’s flying, combat, and technical skills to the limit. But nothing will come close to his greatest test. Captain Gaunt, one of the Alliance’s most decorated officers plans to use Dreadnought to start a war, one that will engulf the region and cost many lives. As Dreadnought rolls out her guns to engage the very people Nate calls his friends, he has to make a decision. Does he stand by and let war spread through the sector, or will he lead the cadets in a mutiny against a beloved hero of the Alliance?

Nothing new

What disappointed you about Star Crusader: Dreadnought?

The book offers nothing new from sci-fi story perspective. The story here is pretty basic and juvenile. It follows a formula and doesn't deviate much. At no point did I feel wowed. Please note that there's nothing particularly "wrong" with the story. It's just - not exciting. I've read such stories numerous times and I could tell what would happened next with my eyes closed. The characters too were on-dimensional with clear good vs evil tropes.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Mostly bored and disappointed.

Any additional comments?

I received this audiobook for free from the author / narrator / publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

Total Dreadnought Recall!

If you could sum up Star Crusader: Dreadnought in three words, what would they be?

Cookie Cutter Story

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

They way they got to the ending was enjoyable enough but was basically predictable.

Which character – as performed by Andrew B. Wehrlen – was your favorite?

The narrator was the star of this production. The characters all sounded the same for the most part but his voice was splendid. I would definitely listen to him more and he does have a hint of range. The story sounded more like a diary of a cadet.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Crimson Tide in Space.

Any additional comments?

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I did enjoy the story. Just found it to be typical. I did like the touch about virtual reality though. Just did not feel actionay enough.

Fast and exciting story

I really really enjoyed this book, the charactes are likeable, the story was intriging and kept you wanting to listen for the next bit. Even though I have not read any other stories from this series I did not feel lost at anypoint. I look forward to listening to more from this series in the future.

Even though I was given a free copy to provied a non-baised review I will be using my monthly credits to back track and listen to the rest of this series

Good Space Opera

Another good story from the mind of Michael G. Thomas this is his latest adventure based in his Star Crusader universe and is no 8, so the backstory is quite involved with many a war previously fought.
This is a well crafted story and is typical of his previous work. The only fault lies in the sheer level of data and a sometime confusion between simulation and what exctly our main hero Nate experiences. In book format this is more easily solved by checking back something that these type of books struggle with in audio.
In this case the skills of the narrator Andrew Wehrlen are tested and he does a great job dealing with this.
However it does fall slightly short of the 5 stars but comes close to it. A bit of attention is needed but a worthy buy.
This audio was gifted and requested by me and i choose to leave an honest review and as such is my own opinion.
