Publisher's Summary

In the twenty-sixth century, humanity is at war with the Xenophobes, and the planet Loki is the next battleground.
Dev Cameron joined the military to fly a starship but is rated unsuitable and grudgingly accepts an assignment with the ground forces, piloting a massive walking tank (a warstrider). But Cameron may yet get a chance at glory when he makes a discovery about the alien foes that could change the course of the war.

This one is tough to listen to.

Would you try another book from Ian Douglas and/or David Drummond?

I've enjoyed Ian Douglas' work in the past and that's why I tried this one in spite of poor reviews. While I might try another book by Ian, I won't try any more from this series. As far as David Drummond's narration, it was horrible for this book. While Ian created a world that is greatly influenced by Japan, the narration was done with what sounded like a Scottish Pirate.

Would you be willing to try another book from Ian Douglas? Why or why not?


How did the narrator detract from the book?

Bad accents and intonation made everyone sound scared and panicked

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. I listened to all but the last hour or so and just couldn't stand it anymore.

S l o w, slow, a little b e t t e r....

In the beginning, I had to keep backing up to re listen because my ears were working but my brain kept trying to nap! Finally, I began to sense there might be a story evolving but it was halfway thru the book! I didn't like the protaginst's smart mouth attitude which abruptly became charismatic boy wonderI The overuse of Japanese titles and traditions bogged me down with all the translations. The narrator was a "C" but in fairness, he didn't have much to work with. I'd advise the listener who wants a developing plot, rounded characters and some action to keep looking.
