Listener Opinions

    " Horribly edited bit of retro space opera. Redshirts indescriminetely killed off after being built into almost characters. Cover copy of protagonist doesn't match character. A rare bad job from Baen Press, which normally does better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miles | 12/13/2013

    " Enjoyable military sci-fi. Nothing incredibly spectacular, but solid work and grittier than average for the genre while being liberally sprinkled with humor. Unusually high body count, so be warned those of you who get really attached to characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jerzy | 11/21/2013

    " nice military sci-fi, but a little bit too crazy for 4th star. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 10/28/2013

    " Very interesting and different take on how we will get back into space. This is the first time I've seen the concept of using a converted sub, makes sense from a layperson's point of view, anyway. "

    " Earth's first starship... sequel to 'Looking Glass'... good stuff, lots of space marine action... oorah. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Myles | 6/30/2012

    " Book #2 in the Looking Glass series. This one takes the fight against the alien menace into deep space aboard the A.S.S. Vorpal Blade. Thank god for duct tape! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda Kirton | 8/14/2011

    " Very enjoyable read. What would make it better would a little bit less rampant American patriotism and racial profiling. It was notable but not overpowering. "

    " Loved it. Lots of action. "

    " Excellent book full of action and adventure. The characters were believable and easy to identify with. The science facts in the book brought the story to a believable level not just science fiction.
    Great read. "

    " Crazy action in the Ringo style. And bizarre particle physics. What's not to like?
    Well, there are Ringo's political views for one. And perhaps he goes a bit over the top here. OK, more than a bit. Giant surfing space hamsters? Really? "
