Wow this was pretty good

I wasn't sure what to expect, since it's the first in a new series but I guess I should have known it would be good, given Chaney's track record. As usual, he doesn't disappoint. The narration, writing, and story are all top notch. Great job as usual.

I'm a simple guy. I see Chaney, I buy.

This one delivered exactly what I wanted. A great story ,fun characters, and a superb narration. My only question is when is book 2 coming out? I see it's out on ebook already, so I hope that means the audio is around the corner.

I love how Chaney puts these out so efficiently. It's incredible.

So good

It's been a while since I read a good military book. This one, written by two veterans, shows what happens when you actually put some love and care and experience into the writing. Rev is just a kid when the book starts, but he grows up fast. I'm excited to see where this series goes. Hopefully they put more out soon.

You can't go wrong with a Chaney book

I am a huge fan of Wayward Galaxy and Renegade Star, so when I saw this one, I suspected it would be good.

I was right! The fight scenes are really good and the writing is what I have come to expect. Easy to read and satisfying. Great job as always. I will be eagerly waiting for book 2.

Fantastic story

Will appeal to vets and anyone who appreciates a good marine scifi story. Loved the creativity with the aliens and the premise. The narration was great, too. I hope this is a long series because I'd love to see the universe explored in depth as it goes.

It’s like Starship Troopers meets the Dirty Dozen

Chaney has a proven track record of collaborating with authors on good stories and Brazee is no exception. Sentenced to War pulls in familiar elements from some favorite Sci fi stories but adds a few new twists. It doesn’t drone on with endless world building or over explain things the reader doesn’t need to know. I enjoyed the audio book and look forward to the next one.

Excellent start to a new series.

Rev Pelletier was young man who thought he had his future all mapped out, but a minor traffic infraction turns into a major detour when he's sentenced to military service that could having serving until he's an old man. Wanting out of the military ASAP, he volunteers for hazardous duty and gets augmented sent off to the frontlines of the latest war. Chaney & Brazee deliver a thoroughly engaging story filled with an excellent cast and plenty of action. Definitely a excellent start to what I believe will be an epic adventure. The book is narrated by the incredibly talented Jeffrey Kafer and as always the man delivers a spectacular performance.

No.

Run screaming in the opposite direction. Uninspired characters,and thin plot. I'm not sure where the plot is going to go but I'm not sure anyone else knows either.

Premise is horrible.

Even though the fact that the MC gets assigned to military service for a traffic violation is clearly stated in the description, it doesn't tell you that mortality rates are 78% and up in the current war. In addition, somehow other enlisted know your a "convict" and not a volunteer and you get crap for it. Also, the modifications that the MC undergoes he has no choice about. Now, if you did that to me, I would be killing a lot of military brass after my upgrades as well as politicians and judges as a thank you. Instead, the MC just takes it. I won't be reading anything this author rights in the future.
