I have been reading the entire Aldenata series and have so far loved it. However this book has nothing to do with the series in the order they are written anyway. It is set 100s of years after the book before it and can be skipped if trying to read the series. As far as the book goes, it is pretty good but not near as good as the rest of the series .

I enjoy all of the Aldenata series by John Ringo, and this was no exception. I like Marc Vietor as a narrator and he did a great job on this story. Ringo's style lends itself very well to the spoken word and that makes these great audio books.
Marc varied the characterizations for the main characters well. He brought a different energy to each to make them unique. I have not read the original source material so I cannot compare it to my reading of the book, but I enjoyed the tale very much.
My only complaint is that this book should not be classified as part of the "main line" of the Legacy of the Aldenata series -- it takes place a considerable period of time after the other four books in the main thread and has spoilers for other "related" books that pick up their stories more closely on the heals of the original story thread. Unfortunately Audible includes this book as part of the main story so that is why I bought it before the others.
If you want to follow the narrative more closely then I suggest wait to read this one until you have read the Cally's War series and the other adjunct books.

The Top and enjoyable, likeable and fun.
What other book might you compare The Hero to, and why?
Like I stated in all of my reviews to Chris Fieldwater's books IRA Intrusion, is one
Have you listened to any of Marc Vietor’s other performances? How does this one compare?
I liked the Ghost and follow on books, I did not enjoy the sex to detailed, but I over looked that because I love a good read or in my case audio books.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Hell is like a walk in the park,
Any additional comments?
