Publisher's Summary

It’s survival of the fittest in a brutal war of extinction!
Created in the gene labs as super soldiers, the Highborn decide to replace the obsolete Homo sapiens. They pirate the Doom Stars and capture the Sun Works Ring around Mercury. Now they rain asteroids, orbital fighters and nine-foot tall drop troops onto Earth in a relentless tide of conquest.
Marten Kluge is on the receiving end. Hounded by Thought Police, he lives like an ant in a kilometer-deep city. The invasion frees him from a re-education camp but lands him in the military, fighting for the wrong side. Star Soldier is the story of techno hell in a merciless war, with too many surprises for any grunt’s sanity. Star Soldier is a full novel, 82,000 words in length by Vaughn Heppner, Writers of the Future winner, Vol. IX.

Good book and the series only gets better!

Cons:
While I give this book a 3.5 I would highly suggest getting it! The series overall is an easy 4 or maybe a 5 (on the last 2 hours of book 6). The problem with this book is the story seems hopeless and there are quite possibly too many characters and a lot going on. Eventually towards the middle of the book and in all the others it focuses mostly on the main character.

Pros:
The narrator does a decent job in this book, as I've seen much worse, but he becomes top notch in book 2 and only gets better. You can tell every character apart without a problem; even the ones that don't talk much. This book as well as all others don't take much time getting into the action. The story isn't predictable and keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the hell the main character and humanity go through. It has quite a bit of strategy (which i like the most) and more action and space battles than any book I've read.

If your into science fiction, space battles, and hand to hand combat; I would highly suggest getting this book and the rest of the series. I rank it up there with the star force and lost fleet series (so readers know where i stand), but the books are quite dissimilar. It is much closer to the star force series, but in a much crueler world where genetic superiors claim themselves as the rulers.

Worst narration I've heard from any audible book

I could almost not stand listening to this book because of the narration. The character accents were awful and the pace was too slow. The narrator was a huge distraction to the story.
