Publisher's Summary

Million-copy best seller M.R. Forbes presents the first four books in the Chaos of the Covenant series. Over 30 hours of listening!

When the Earth Republic is savagely attacked, they recruit the universe’s most dangerous minds to retrieve their stolen warships. But as this ragtag group of criminals embarks on a suicide mission to fight for their lives and freedom, an even bigger threat emerges….

Includes:

  • Hell’s Rejects
  • Fire and Brimstone
  • The Devils Do
  • Kill the Queen

From Book One:

The most powerful starships ever constructed are taken. Thousands are dead. A fleet is in ruins....

Lieutenant Abigail Cage never expected to find herself in Hell. There was a time when she was one of the most respected operatives in the military. Now she's doing hard labor on the most miserable planet in the universe.

Not for long.

The Republic is looking for the most dangerous individuals it can control. The best of the worst, and Abbey is one of them. Joined by the most ragtag collection of criminals the galaxy has to offer, she sets out to recover the ships and take down the traitors who stole them.

There's only one problem...

A new evil is rising in the galaxy. One with a power unlike anything anyone has ever seen. One that's been waiting for this moment for a very, very long time.

And it wants Abbey too.

Fans of Guardians of the Galaxy and Star Wars will love the series reviewers describe as “imaginative, pure fun in a great story with great characters, dialogue, action and emotions.”

good ideas smells a bit like starwars fanfiction.

the story was ok, kinda predictable in its escalation. I must say that the narrator did an excellent job. I am in awe.

Great story ruined by Mary Sue & cringe dialouge

The overall story seems to be interesting but the characters and dialouge are just awful

excellent series

just the right balance of action versus plot progression to keep things interesting. A lot of different characters appear throughout the storyline which at first made the story a bit hard to follow, but I think the narrator did a good enough job making them sound different enough to allow me to keep track of everyone until they either died messily or became part of the main storyline. Having listened to the first 4 books as a publisher pack was definitely the right incentive to make me want to listen to the rest of the series.

what in the hell?

build a team of criminals okay I get it, save the world sure , but it seems like it crams too much world building and save the world for character development. I could care less if any of the main characters die I honestly couldn't finish this box set. also author pick one Nick names or real names this interchanging bs sucks and feels like you had a min word count for hs English class and you needed to pad the length a little

Tried and tried - couldn’t connect w/ story...

I never give up on a series over petty things. Normally I hang in there until I get it - or I’m so invested time-wise it doesn’t make sense to quit. So,I finally made it through the Books 1-4 set. It took about four times longer than normal due to my having to go back and replay chapters. The first book revealed just enough potential for an engaging story that I hung in there. But after this it devolved into a campy mess. There were episodic moments that were funny or interested me, but overall I couldn’t get a picture in my head of the scenes, vehicles, and characters. I always felt like I was missing something that would make me care more. I also wish the author would have gone ahead and used the actual curse word instead of “frag”. I hate the real word, but the made up word was overused to a degree it became a distraction. It was actually annoying. I’m certain I’m not alone in this criticism. I wish I had liked this more. I wanted to!

Surprisingly good

This is a pretty mixed up book as far as defined a genre but it all comes together. . A mixture of space marines, mythology, the force, space pirates, and spy story. . I definitely would recommend this book to anyone that like adventure science fiction and is not offended by a some references to religious mythology.

An imaginary spin on Sci-Fi and horror.

Creative out of the gate. Warm , funny and detailed cast of characters. With a PG-13 format our author keeps you engaged without worrying if your kids over hear.

Fun and suspenseful ride with a fantastic performance by Jeff Hayes. His range of voices was very impressive and he really brought the characters to life.

Wow.... really good

This series is really good. The characters, the world creation, narration. Jeff Hays once again nails every thing. I will be finishing this series. This also needs to be a tv series or anime. It’s that good. Not a movie, that’d be too short. Maybe five seasons?

Loads of Fun

Hell's Rejects doesn't pretend to be anything more than a high energy sci-fi adventure. Forbes made no attempt to please the pretentious "awards are everything" crowd. Instead the audience is treated to a fast moving tale with some of the most likable characters I've had the pleasure of following in recent years. Take equal liberal parts of Star Trek and Star Wars and throw them into a mixing bowl. Add dashes of various other sci-fi properties along with a measure of "hidden history" mythology and you get Hell's Rejects. I'd classify this series as high science fantasy at its most fun. Do yourself a favor, tune out the cares of your life and allow the Rejects to take you on an epic jaunt into an escapist fantasy ride that never fails to entertain.

What a story

This story successfully merges religion, mystery, and space sci-fi together. The main characters are interesting and full and fun. The book keep you suspended from one chanter to the next. I am looking forward to the next installment.

Really enjoyed listening to this book

I really enjoyed listening to the first four books in this series. I very much enjoyed the story and the characters. I also found the voice acting to be fantastic. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.

First listen

This is the first time I’ve listened to both the author and narrator. The 3 book group was a good listen. I won’t be listening to the rest of the series because I’m disappointed to say the books are too short and not worth the credits. At 10hrs, 7hrs and 7hrs it just isn’t worth the cost Shame

These books tell a compelling story that incorporates both sci-fi and fantasy elements. Believable characters in a fantastical universe. Well worth the time to listen.

Space vampires from Hell vs alien dirty dozen
