After an opportunistic heist gone wrong, a squad of Galactic Fleet Marines set down on a remote planet hoping to repair their badly damaged ship and resupply quickly so they can be on their way to spend their new riches.
Finding the supply outpost occupied by less than normal residents, the Marines are soon fighting for their lives against a deadly force unlike any they've seen on the battlefield. It'll take all their training and skills to get out alive, let alone in one piece.

.Dark,gritty,Masterful ...welcome to Hell
I would recommend this book to a friend indeed, in fact I have .Jake Bible blew me away with this book.

Andrew Werhlen reads this innovative story to perfection. Each character has his or her own individual voice, the pace is brisk but not too fast and his changing intonations help ramp up the tensions inherent in the text.

I was really fortunate in being gifted my copy of Outpost Hell by the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. Thank you: I really loved it. An heroic A.I., fabulous fights, delicious dialogue, crazy characters, great narrative and narrator - what more can any military s.f. fan want.
