Publisher's Summary

For the first few years, Rick Galloway and his band of mercenaries were doing well just to survive. They'd been swept off a hilltop in Africa by a flying saucer and deposited on an alien world where the other inhabitants were human - but from various and unfriendly periods of history, all collected by flying saucer raids.

Rick has faced facts: This place is going to be home, permanently. To create a safe society for themselves and the families they are gradually building, they need to do more than just survive; they must convince the others that a unified, peaceful society is better than a collection of warring tribes. Force would not be Rick's chosen method of persuasion, but on a planet where the other dominant culture is one brought straight from ancient Rome, force may be the only way.

Entertaining for the umpteenth time

Disclaimer: I've been an avid fan of Jerry Pournelle and Larry Niven since the 1970s so my point of view may be slightly biased. Although this particular series was never completed it still is an incredibly entertaining story especially as an audiobook. Sometimes I wished it was made into a movie but the rich detail of Pournelle's work would be wasted in that media. Perhaps audiobook is the best format. I think is is. The narrator is excellent, handling the various accents perfectly. Definitely worth the money. Enjoy!

great story

Due to the last sentence however I will not be buying the next book. I get the authors need for that story line I just find it a cheap annoying tactics like an unnecessary rape or murder I lost all interest.

Puts meat on the bones after book one.

Adds a lot of depth to the story and characters after their introduction in book one. Keith Szarabajka was brilliant. Will be looking for more of his work.

good but flawed

I like these kinds of stories, but it was difficult to differentiate characters' voices at times and the story felt full of plot holes and lacking in description. If you can get past these flaws, go ahead and read.

Hard to follow the plot when you can’t read member the characters names or the voices that word to change per character
I could follow the first book but not planning on getting the third book
