Publisher's Summary

First in a New Military Science Fiction Series
"I was on a dead ship on an unknown planet with three trainees freshly graduated into the Imperial Service. I tried to look on the bright side."
He is the last to wake. The label on his sleeper pad identifies him as an admiral of the Evagardian Empire - a surprise as much to him as to the three recent recruits now under his command. He wears no uniform, and he is ignorant of military protocol, but the ship's records confirm he is their superior officer.
Whether he is an Evagardian admiral or a spy will be of little consequence if the crew members all end up dead. They are marooned on a strange world, their ship's systems are failing one by one - and they are not alone.

An Admiral, a spy or something else?

This was a fun listen - a good mix of SF adventure (how to get out of their predicament) and mystery (who is the Admiral?)

In places, the unknown identity of the narrator was very clunky and felt a bit forced. I had guessed a bit of his identity, but some of it came completed out of left field and felt quite unsatisfying. But the door is left open for more adventures, so maybe that's why?

On the more positive side, I did like the characters and technology - the escape plotline was fleshed out with just the right level of "gadgets" and ingenuity.

On the narration: McClain does a good job distinguishing between the characters. I'd definitely listen to his narration in future
