Really enjoyed this book. The characters are truely likable, and the story flows smoothy. I will be buying the next installment.

This was a fun, if simplistic (and familiar to any sci-fi fan) story. I liked Blake and his crew, but I never felt I got to know them well or that there was the opportunity for any significant character growth. I liked that two of the main characters, two of the best fighters were women. But it felt a little cliche that one was almost childlike in her joy and the other basically emotionless. (To be fair, the male soldiers were even flatter.)
This is a good set up for a further series, but on its own it's largely a protracted fight scene. And even in that it's pretty weak, as the characters seemed to triumph a bit too easily. But as a just-for-fun read, I call it a success.
Kudos to the narrator though, I don't know if Blake would have felt as charismatic if he hadn't had his distinct drawl.
