Publisher's Summary

The war is over. Earth is lost. Running is the only option. And it may already be too late.

Caleb is a former Marine Raider and commander of the Vultures, a search and rescue team that's spent the last two years pulling high-value targets out of alien-ravaged cities and shipping them off-world.

When his new orders call for him to join 40,000 survivors aboard the last starship out, he thinks his days of fighting are over. The Deliverance represents a fresh start and a chance to leave the war behind for good.

Except the war won't be as easy to escape as he thought.

And the colony will need a man like Caleb more than he ever imagined.

Enter the universe of the Forgotten with Deliverance, the first book in the Forgotten Colony series. If you're a fan of Aliens, Battlestar Galactica, Starship Troopers, Ender's Game, or Edge of Tomorrow, you'll love this epic military sci-fi thriller.

Meh

The beginning through me off. The are highly trained marines yet they don't do the basics like covering fire and standing around in active zone with out a weapon razed. Narrator was good. story was predictable.

The story is awesome... Narrator not so much.

I loved the story, however I can't say I'm too big of a fan of the narrator. The previous Forgotten Series left me on my seat so many times with how the narrator read the story. This story actually had me zoning out at times due to his monotone.

Good work

Its a good piece of work, especially later in the book. ill not get in to the details as I dont want to spoil it but all I would say, is that it seems to jump forward father quick, if I had to guess it perhaps feels like an editor has hacked away chunks in order to hit a target. I dont believe the Author has deliberately done this as it makes it a little unbelievable and I think the vision for where this book goes is probably much deeper.

This is notably evident in moments before Deliverance takes off, the escalation curve is so steep, it borders on unbelievable.
youd could argue this was by design to show the severity of their situation but if that were the case it could have been depicted better with a prolonged chapter, rather than the serious of actions by characters that has massive effect of subsequent events, Then there are some interpersonal relationship ramps, notably the relationship between the main character and the "Sheriff" and scene where we learn that one of the crew has another motive and is quite happy to kill for it.

I dont believe that it has a massive negative effect but id rather read a full fat version given the choice. if the author is reading this, please dont let your editor hack your work, give us your full vision, reading a 15 hour book is perfectly fine if it makes it better :)


anyhow, dont miss this one, I think it works well and I look forward to knowing where its going next
