Publisher's Summary

Humanity's last encounter with aliens saw 16.2 billion people killed in a war with the Merkiaari that had spanned decades. Only by the grace of God and the use of Nanotechnology were they defeated. The result of that Nanotech? Vipers, a regiment of super soldiers tasked with protecting the Alliance and annihilating the Merki. It was a job they performed with distinction, a job they completed almost two centuries ago. A job that cost them their humanity.
Thurston is an unimportant border world with a problem, a Marine type problem. Not the sort of place Gunnery Sergeant Gina Fuentez expected to find one of the fabled Viper cyborgs, but that's just what she discovers when a simple mission to extract an operative from a terrorist camp leads to a firefight and two of her squad dead.
With friends dying around her and a world coming apart at the seams, Gina must decide if the Marine Corps is really her home, or just a stopping place to where she really belongs.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Nah. Look, I got this series because I was looking for scifi. The first book started slow, and I stopped a few times, but once the actual Scifi got started, it was great. But then this book does it again. 9 hours. THE FIRST 9 HOURS are more of the fighting terrorists, and... i dont even know, i skipped it after the first hour. I resumed with 6 hours left, with Canada arriving back in Sol, where the story picks up from the 1st book. 70% of the book was just useless to the actual story, imo.

Would you ever listen to anything by Mark E. Cooper again?

Probably not. Im more into Kevin Anderson, David Weber, John Ringo, etc Scifi. Scifi that hits you in the face and keeps going. Not... terrorism and bad dialogue between soldiers fighting terrorists.

Which scene was your favorite?

He skipped like 90% of the actual fights in this book for some reason. Nothing really striking happened.

Could you see What Price Honour being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

If it is, the terrorist plot will be cut, and the training planet will be a montage.

Any additional comments?

No. Just really annoyed.
