Listener Opinions

    " The dialogue was horrible "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kent | 2/7/2014

    " Ok, this was a fun book, but the language was awful. Wish I could have had a filter put into the audio book I was listening to. Space Military Opera. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 KathyP | 2/3/2014

    " Awesome book. All Tanya Huff's books have strong female characters. Sarge is the ideal most soldiers strive for. You get a look at the thought processes behind the facade which adds depth and makes for a fast paced, thoroughly enjoyable read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee | 1/31/2014

    " 2.5 stars. Pretty decent military interactions/dialogue, but a bit light on the combat side. Glosses over some inter-species interactions. Still, she briefly made her point about the military culture overwhelming the different cultures of the the serving species. I'll probably try the rest of the series -light reading for the beach or airplane. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 1/23/2014

    " It was almost good. Too much talk, not enough action. Even during the action there was not enough action. At least the characters didn't suck. Perfect airplane book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michele | 1/22/2014

    " I'm not into military stories but I liked this easy read. It moved along quickly with clear races and characters. The lead female is strong and smart. The plot doesn't get bogged down with scifi minutia or by trying to bring in too many side stories and characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 1/11/2014

    " space marines stand firm, excellent characters "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 SixBeforeLunch | 12/12/2013

    " Wow. Fantastic book. It's actually two novels in one book, but the two stories work pretty well together. Torin Kerr is a fantastic protagonist. Lots of action and some humor. I'm not usually into military science fiction, but this is a notable exception. Good stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick Grayson | 11/10/2013

    " Not a lot of mystery or intrigue to this book just some really good science fiction story telling. Gotta love a strong female lead it made this book a very enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terry | 9/4/2013

    " Started off a bit slow and confusing but smoothed out eventually. A nice Space war novel ala David Drake (Hammer's Slammers). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 4/21/2013

    " Loved it, great story and good characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 SinisterAgentMulder | 11/21/2012

    " Audiobook : the first half wasn't catching my interest almost gave up on the book. Action did get better . glad i didn't give up on it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sumnerkai | 10/30/2012

    " I'm a fan of military sci-fi and historical fiction, so this book was very enjoyable to me. Great humor as well! That said, it was fairly straight forward and predictable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betsy Brown | 10/25/2012

    " Author has a snarky sense of humor. Fascinating military/space/sci-fi novel based on an actual historic battle with an alien twist. Staff Seargeant Kerr is amazing at dealing with ignorant officers and clueless civilians both. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret Sankey | 9/10/2012

    " Rip roaring space opera with a riff on Rorke's Drift, lizard people and interstellar marines. Some things really never change, whether it is Welsh people or plasma rifles. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 8/31/2012

    " Fun read, but nothing more than the stereotypical "alien invasion" plotline. Like Huff in general, it's a pretty cheesy read, but it was entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 8/26/2012

    " Love books that can pull off great characters with a lot of action. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ron | 7/24/2012

    " Formulaic retelling of the Battle of Roarke's Drift set in space. Letter volumes in Valor series are better reads. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lurple | 6/7/2012

    " Great military sci-fi, which takes note of real historical battles and gives them a sci-fi spin. Staff Sergeant Kerr is a great character, and she really makes the books something special. Read on the in also excellent The Better Part of Valor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Atenea-Nike | 2/5/2012

    " I am not usually a fan of military fiction but in this case I have to say that I loved the main character, Torin Kerr, Staff Sergeant, and her interactions with her soldiers and with her superior officers. A likeable character and an entertaining plot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natasha | 8/12/2011

    " Meh. I couldn't tell the less major/minor characters apart. I didn't get a feel for what each alien race actually looked like or what they were actually like. Didn't care for any characters. And of course there was a race that would have sex with anything. Of course. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 7/15/2011

    " If you are into military sci-fi this book is for you. I enjoyed it because the main character is a female Staff Sergeant in the Confederation Marine Corp. I could not put it down once I started to read it. Please give it a try. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 3/31/2011

    " space marines stand firm, excellent characters "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tasula | 12/4/2010

    " Female Gunnery Sergeant in future military. Great story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 11/28/2010

    " My only real quibble with the book was my complete inability to understand what a Dornagain looked like, which kept drawing me up short. I'll pursue the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 11/21/2010

    " Never thought I would so thoroughly enjoy military science fiction, but this engaging series by Tanya Huff has me hooked on the adventures of Marine sergeant Torin Kerr who always brings her troops out alive from deadly encounters in outer space. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 11/13/2010

    " Kerr is a wonderful, strong female leading character. Great book. "

    " I've been indulging in an orgy of military sf reading since February, when Patrick at Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego got me hooked on it. This is one of the best by far, a splendid blend of characterization, setting, plot and hand-to-hand combat. I'd follow Staff Sergeant Torin Kerr anywhere. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 9/2/2010

    " Military sci-fi. Excellent. Can't wait to read #2. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glenn | 7/23/2010

    " If you read my shelves you notice I like military sci fi. I thought until
    Ms Huff that my hero's had to be male... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jesi | 7/3/2010

    " The end made me want to shout "Hoorah!" - unfortunately, I was at work at the time. "
