Publisher's Summary

The galaxy is mired in a cold war between two superpowers, the Illyrican Empire and the Commonwealth. Thrust between this struggle are Simon Kovalic, the Commonwealth's preeminent spy, and Kyle Rankin, a lowly soldier happily scrubbing toilets on Sabaea, a remote and isolated planet. However, nothing is as it seems.
Kyle Rankin is a lie. His real name is Eli Brody, and he fled his home world of Caledonia years ago. Simon Kovalic knows Caledonia is a lit fuse hurtling towards detonation. The past Brody so desperately tried to abandon can grant him access to people and places that are off limits even to a professional spy like Kovalic. Kovalic needs Eli Brody to come home and face his past. With Brody suddenly cast in a play he never auditioned for, he and Kovalic will quickly realize it's everything they don't know that will tip the scales of galactic peace. Sounds like a desperate plan, sure, but what gambit isn't?
The Caledonian Gambit is a throwback to the classic sci-fi adventures of spies and off-world politics, but filled to the brim with modern sensibilities.

Critic Reviews

"The action scenes, both on the ground and in space, show a focus on thoughtful planning and careful pacing. The characterization delves just enough into emotionality to give the characters realism without moving the focus away from fights, intrigue, and spycraft." (Publishers Weekly)

Great world-building and plot!

Dan created a world (well, a universe!) and an intriguing plot that keeps _The Caledonian Gambit_ interesting from start to finish!

Great narration and pacing as well.

I would recommend this audiobook to fans of space adventures involving spy craft and intrigue. I am looking forward to more!

Loved Every Moment

Awesome book by Dan Moren and narration by Rob Grgach.

It had me sitting in my driveway trying to end a chapter, falling asleep in bed with my AirPods (and trying to find them in the morning), and taking way too many breaks at work. It had just the right mix of funny, serious, sad and exciting. I look forward to the next installment.

Loved the premise

Great story that hit some high notes. Unfortunately I got pulled out of the story a little by some shaky English and Irish accents. Well read in all other aspects.
