United Nations Special Operations Command sent an elite expeditionary force of soldiers and pilots out on a simple recon mission, and somehow along the way they sparked an alien civil war. Now the not-at-all-merry band of pirates is in desperate trouble, again. Their stolen alien starship is falling apart, thousands of light years from home. The ancient alien AI they nicknamed Skippy is apparently dead, and even if they can by some miracle revive him, he might never be the same.

RC Bray does a wonderful job of performing the story. I love the writers ability to sneak in little Easter eggs of SciFi favorites too. if your addicted to sci fi this is a great read. thanks so much

Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, listeners have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over 40 million copies in over 32 languages. When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written. But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork.

I've listened to all of the Wheel of Time audiobooks now and they have been an excellent companion to my boring manual labour that I do. Brandon Sanderson gives extra depth to the characters and to action scenes. highly recommend and thank you for the ride.
