DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS FIRST

I’m baffled at the location of this entry into the series. While looking for something to listen to I read the brief descriptions of the others. Interesting. I haven’t been burnt by a prequel up until this one. BEFORE you get to chapter ONE you know who the character is, why he is, what he’s doing, why he’s doing it, and the conclusion of an event that could only be near end given the descriptions of the other books, but if not, it spoils the entire core story.

Oh man.

Fenra and Sola were real potential and the story premise was solid with the militia and rebels, but the Major in orbit just wouldn't have gone like that regardless, the first third of the story being political for no real gain, and the cringe amount of oorah just didn't pull me in. Save your free credit for this one. Honestly, skip it really. I adored the Order of the Centurion, but not this one. It could've been something special like book 1,but wasn't. Sorry.

Quietly surprised. Just chose this kind of randomly based on the stars of others. Personally not regretting it. Not overly complicated which is what you'll get out of a 7 hour story and glad for it. Any more and it'll unnecessary waffle. Well done to the author.

Chapter 18

Needed something to listen to (I drive trucks) and just picked this one randomly because it was book one. Glad I did. The parts describing what's happening can be a bit dry and I start to drift, but character parts pull me back in at light speed. Can't wait for book 2. Chapter 18 had me in hysterics, though. Just the random ... randomness ... was hilarious. You'll know what I mean when you hear it.

Great listen. Really enjoyed. Valuable story and of historical significance. So glad Irving talked him into it. To the point and didn't mess around with jargon like most do. 99% of people who buy these books are familiar with the terms already. Recommend for sure.

Start with the other books.

I randomly picked this out just browsing and found out it's like the sixth book. I've gone back to the start. Really great story. The moral musing gets a fraction cringy in places, but past that into the action is fairly brutal.

Just so condescending.

I couldn't get past the condescension. In parts it was just insulting to your intelligence and it really was a deal breaker for me. Performance was excellent.

Really great.

Years ago my English teacher gave me "The Sniper" to read. A short story based in the conflict. I remembered that again and came looking for a book from that conflict. I just randomly chose this one. It didn't disappoint. I loved "the followers" concept.

Horrifying.

Really enjoyed this. Terrifying in its detail and frustratingly tragic in how avoidable the event was. Well written and investigated and really enjoyed the production. I picked Cheech and Danny's voices as well! It was quite eye-opening in how such a criminal take over of a society can affect the innocent bystanders left with no options when those in authority refuse to do their job. I think once you're taking payments or making millions you have no defence. Many should be jailed for failing their community.

Sympathies to the families. Thank you for making this story.
