One more tour on the red.Maybe my last.
They made their presence on Earth known 13 years ago.
Providing technology and scientific insights far beyond what mankind was capable of. They became indispensable advisors and promised even more gifts that we just couldn't pass up. We called them Gurus.
It took them a while to drop the other shoe. You can see why, looking back.
It was a very big shoe, completely slathered in crap.
They had been hounded by mortal enemies from sun to sun, planet to planet, and were now stretched thin - and they needed our help.
And so our first bill came due. Skyrines like me were volunteered to pay the price. As always.
These enemies were already inside our solar system and were moving to establish a beachhead, but not on Earth.

intro to a new universe and not much else
Unsatisfying. Story raises many questions and resolves precious few of them. Character development minimal. New science fiction concepts minimal. Seems like a military sci-fi, but military action minimal. Appears to be solely an introduction to a new universe. My time would have been much better spent revisiting Starship Troopers.

Interesting Intro to a Series
Would you consider the audio edition of War Dogs to be better than the print version?
No, nothing beats a book in your hands, but I did enjoy the story and the performance via audio.
What did you like best about this story?
I enjoyed the story line. It kept me interested and wanting more.
Have you listened to any of Jay Snyder’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I enjoyed the narrator. He did a good job with the story and the characters. So far, he is my favorite narrator.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Any additional comments?
I understand other reviewers frustration with the lack of sci fi or military sci fi. The story does not contain much pure sci fi. It also is clearly leading the reader to expect more details and story to come. I found the military parts of the story a bit much at times, but that is just personal preference. It's not that it was poorly written. Those points aside, I did enjoy the story and found myself eager to hear more. It contained interesting concepts and characters were beginning to be developed more fully. I plan to continue to the next book in the series.
