doesn't really add anything

the store is short. would have been better if it was added in to the main book, not just a side note. not worth the money I payed for it.

Not a bad book but what a terrible narrator

The book was too bad, not the best I've read, but not the worst either. The narrator, however, was awful. Her voice was so hard that all the characters sounded perpetually pissed off.

Too short. Want to hear more.

Good story but Bahni Turpin’s narration made it happen. Buying more books that she narrated.

Worth a listen.

Short listen with good narration. Provides a little back story for the battle that happened in Detroit. I still feel it leaves some questions unanswered, but it helps.

meh, it was ok, didn't really add anything.

you can see and predict the plot of the story pretty easily throughout. already knowing for the most part what the characters or character is going to do. doesn't add a whole lot to the overall story other than it's trying to make you feel bad for the welfare rats and of course the usual trope of big government is evil and anybody that joins is a mindless drone, and only a few mindless drones are capable of seeing the "truth ."

Decent story, but falls flat towards the end.

Book is a 3.5 out of 5 to be honest. Narration was average, not the best vocal range but Corporal Jackson was the primary speaker. Story I initially liked but the ending didn't make sense. If I'm a father and someone hands me dog tags I'm asking how? Especially if I'm from the military. The prior battle in Detroit what did the government do with hundreds of civilians bodies? At the end does Jackson go rogue? She's hell bent on revenge and leads a green squad into a trap and kills another TA solider. Jackson overall wasn't likeable,tough talker but comes across inept at her job, indecisive, and lacked situation awareness. Lastly what was the endgame for Lazarus and company? Political solidarity? If the government hiding bodied they new they were coming back I force what was the point? Overall decent but it's written in a way for a sequel which leaves the story feeling incomplete.

Interesting side story, bad match

liked the story, intrigued to see where it will go. the narrator is skilled, but was a bad match for this series.

" Death funnels."

(Format : Audiobook)
mother fairly short glimpse into the usually unseen parts of the Frontline world created by Marko Kloos, this time as told by one of the earthbound peacekeeper force, Corporal Jackson. She cares for the eight members of the squad under her command, even if they are newbies. And she finds the renowned Detroit riots with the resultant deaths, hard to justify. But she does her job, even when circumstances suggest that there is no way out ...
Bahni Turpin convincingly voices the young corporal, with a clear and firm, but very pleasant reading. As usual, Kloos' stories feel so realistic, they hold a tension to the very end.
A good extra edition to the series.
