Publisher's Summary

Contains books one and two of the Shattered Alliance series.

Shattered Alliance, book 1

The galaxy will never be the same again. A surprise attack during a routine First Contact ceremony turns the Alliance’s flagship into a firework display over the desert planet Shandor and lands Captain Thurgood, and several of his crew, in the hands of an enemy they never knew existed.

For the first time in its existence, the Alliance finds itself outmatched and powerless to act. It falls to a corporate spy, the galaxy’s most wanted criminal, and a soldier from another era to rescue the Captain and his crew. Whether they succeed or fail, the fact remains that the balance of power in the galaxy has shifted and nothing will ever be the same.

Send in the Clones, book 2

The Hell Drivers were built for one reason: to make the enemy wet their battle pants. Composed of clowns, bears, wolves, doctors and even Death itself, this legendary squad of battle rigs was based on the most common fears in the galaxy, and piloted by the biggest bad assess the Alliance could find. Now, they’re needed once more, and Commander Blayse Vides has filled the terror weapons with the only men he can trust to do the job...a dozen clones of himself.

Along with The Oncilla, their job is to get Ambassador Decote and his family off of Mirada before the planet joins the enemy empire. It’s the clones’ first mission as a team and it’s not going to be easy. They all hate each other.

Simply brilliant!

Simply brilliant! I can’t wait for the next in the series. I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t enjoy the series, but if you like Benjamin Wallace’s previous stuff you’ll love this. Daniel Inwood. Christchurch NZ.

FUN!

F.U.N INC! Lol No really though, this book was amazing. Lets get through a couple of the negatives first though, because there are a couple. As with every book in existence :) Weaknesses The Main Character is a bit... dumb... and a little unlikable. Well, very unlikable. At least in the first book yet. I haven't gotten to the second book yet, so I will update this when I do. Strengths The snark and sass of every person in the entire series coupled with the fact that the bad guys are the 'straight men' for the jokes makes them land very well. The premise is highly interesting, and basically a satire that pokes fun at star trek and every generic human led "Union" in space sci fi's ever. Really great stuff there. I can't wait to dig into the second book. I suspect the negatives are going to become strengths. In which case I will update :)

LOVED IT!

This would be a fun package for anyone, but for readers 'of a certain age', the pop culture references that are scattered like Easter Eggs throughout the stories are laugh out loud funny. Great action scenes, wonderful sense of humor and Ben avoids the trap of slow moving romantic subplots. AND I could listen to Phil Thron read the phone book. Do they still make those..?

enjoyable

I didn't enjoy as much as the Duck & Cover or Zombies but still definitely worth the money. Brilliantly read by Phil Thron and I'll definitely be reading the series as they are released

A fun story but I hate everyone in it

Brilliant narration from Phil Thron saves this story, but overall it lacks any great depth of character and what I do find out about them generally makes me hate the main players rather than love them. I did like the idea of the main plot, so I may give the second book a go at some point to see if it improves.
