Publisher's Summary

The Terran Commonwealth has proved a nigh-unstoppable juggernaut in its war against the smaller Castle Federation and her allies, but an almost accidental victory by Captain Kyle Roberts of the carrier Avalon has opened a chink in its armor. Desperate to change the course of a war they are rapidly losing, the Federation assembles a new forward fleet with orders to retake the systems that have fallen to the enemy.

Outnumbered but on the offensive at last, Kyle Roberts must take a hastily assembled battle group back to the worlds the Alliance failed to defend. There he will live or die by the skills of his soldiers and the honor of his enemies.

A fifteen minute story stretched to eleven hours.

A lot of cliched dialog mixed with excessive technical jargon. it just didn't hold my interest.

Good not Great, but still entertaining.

Where does Battle Group Avalon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's a decent space opera. Not up to the level of the Ember War Series, or Expeditionary Force, but it is entertaining.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I really tire of the Heterosexual (most / Homosexual / Hyper-sexual / Hermaphrodite thing that keeps coming up. WE GET IT GLYNN!! You think in the 28th Century all sexuality will be accepted. It just takes away from a story about resisting tyranny.

Another painful read

Same as others in series. Under dog versus might power. The side plots are lame and cliche. I bought first three books in series because I had some planned time to kill. Not buying the last book.

meh

I read the first two books in this series hence me purchasing this one but this was really quite boring. I f you like long involved battles it might be for you but that's all it was: no plot beyond the battle. The one good thing I can say is that the narration was fine. Out of over 200 audio books I have purchased this will be the second I request a refund on (and to be fair, the first one I returned was because it had over half a chapter missing in the middle).

Series seems to have hit its wall

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It's simply riding on the coattails of the prior books in the series. Basically one long space battle full of near misses. Nothing original or thought-provoking, so a disappointment.

Some details i just dont Need

What would have made Battle Group Avalon better?

A number of Gender and Relationship details were totally unnecessary to the story line. The elaboration was excessive in those respects. I found it distasteful and would have omitted most of that part of the story. It felt as though the writer was trying to justify something that would be better if left unforced.

What did you like best about this story?

The details in planning the Missions was fantastic. As was the remaining dynamic and continuity. The characters were well defined so it was easy to imagine the scenes of the story as it progressed.

What about Eric Michael Summerer’s performance did you like?

Eric's performance was impeccable . He brought the characters to life throughout the story. Id look forward to more audiobooks performed by him.

Still Just O.K.

I purchased all 3 books together and whilst I quite enjoyed the books, apart from the repetition of the date, time, location, inside leg measurement, etc, I doubt I would continue.

I found the battle scenes to be read with seeming disinterest, which conveyed that into the battles, making them seem boring, together with what I said previously.
