The opening lines caught me off guard, American accents, where’s Sean Duffy?

I pre ordered on Audible months ago, didn’t recall what it was about. It’s a book by Adrian McKinty so it has to be good, and it didn’t disappoint. Absolutely enthralling. Highly recommended.

I thought I was reading a book on beekeeping with an interesting introduction. Alas, I was mistaken but not disappointed.

Great story, well read apart from the mass mispronounced words; lieutenant, Warwick, Maori, even El Alemein at times.

A well told story. It puts you on the streets, the top of the buildings with the guys. What an amazing story of courage and determination.
One of the best battle stories I have read.

I found the early parts in the USSR a little slow, once we got to Spain the story livened up.

The different voices were annoying at first, it was like listening to a bad radio play. The story was good overall
