Publisher's Summary

The starship Freedom is just a museum ship...until the aliens attack.

The starship Freedom was once a mighty warship. Today, she's a tourist attraction. The space wars ended long ago. The Freedom is now a flying museum; the tourists love it. The Changing of the Guard, the starfighter aerobatics, the starboard cannon salute...it's the best show in the galaxy.

James King commands the starship Freedom. He hates his job. He was a real soldier once, back when the Freedom was a real warship. He never imagined himself running a tourist trap. Right after Christmas, he plans to retire. Then, on Christmas day, the aliens attack. Horrifying aliens. Creatures of claws, fangs, and endless malice. Within hours, they devastate Earth's military. Millions die. So much for retirement.

The aliens spare the starship Freedom. After all, she's only a tourist attraction. But not to Commander King. He will get his beloved starship battle-ready. He will enter the fight. The Freedom will fly to war again!

Battlestar Galactica meets Starship Troopers in this sci-fi adventure from Daniel Arenson, the USA Today best-selling author of Earthrise.

1st of this genre

This book is absolutely fantastic! The first of the sci-fi genre I've ever read by this author, and I could not be happier with it. I cant wait for the sequels to come out so I can continue the story!

Pass

Wanted to like this but honestly couldn't get through the prologue. The narrator is a little too over the top for me, too much like a radio show dj than a narrator.

Also got really turned off by the author's complete misuse of certain scientific terms: Constantly mixes up things like intergalactic and interstellar. Has an entire good description at the very beginning about how humans have colonized the entire solar system but we don't have interstellar flight, then goes on to constantly refer to spacecraft as starships.

Aliens suddenly appear and a speaker explodes like its Galaxy Quest (this novel isn't meant to be humorous). Said aliens are spider shaped yet have faces that can do human expressions. So stereotypical. I just can't even...

Very enjoyable !

This is one of those audiobooks you hate to have to interrupt with life’s many issues . You want to lay in your hammock , soak up the warmth of sunshine and let the day pass while listening to a easy listen .

Starship Freedom

Good “villains”? ✅. Interesting heroes and main characters? ✅✅. Fascinating alien culture ✅✅✅. Dude? Why are you reading the reviews. This is great. If you like the tag line it doesn’t let you down.
