Listen to the complete series

This is a great book, but don't try to listen to it as a stand alone or before the first books. But this is a good thing, you get to listen to first four before this one! This I highly recommend!

Love this series

I bought the first book in this series during the penny a minute sale and boy did that work out for Audible :) Throughout the first five books the story is excellent and the space battles are both intellectual and exciting (which is a rare combination). Our hero, Captain Geary, has to outwit both his enemies and his allies through many twists and turns. I can't wait for book six!
