Publisher's Summary

Master Sergeant Gant Maker was a highly decorated and well-respected marine - until his last mission left him as the sole survivor of an encounter with a vicious race called the Vacra. Served up as a scapegoat and drummed out of the military, he has since lived a life of seclusion with only an adopted alien as a companion.
Now the Vacra have returned. As the only person to have ever faced them and survived, Maker is reinstated in the corps and given the onerous task of finding this enemy on a world located at the edge of known space. Assisting him is an unlikely band of military rejects, including a blind sharpshooter, an unstable psychic, and a genetically engineered killing machine who refuses to fight.
Given that the Vacra have superior weapons and technology, Maker recognizes that his team is at a distinct disadvantage. But marines are nothing if not resourceful, and Maker has an audacious plan that just may level the playing field - if it doesn't get them all killed.

I want book two.

“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”
I said yes to reviewing this because I can never get enough really good, military style, Science Fiction stories, and I had never read anything by this author,so thought it worth trying. I am so glad I did, it was a wonderful story and I hated having to pause it to let the dog out for her business. I really liked the realistic feel to the military aspects and the aliens were all well thought out. In fact after Maker my favourite Character was his alien sidekick.
I am definitely adding Kevin Hardman to my future autobuys. And as for the narrator, I'm off to see what else he's done as I truly love his style and all the distinctive Character voices he does.
I truly hope that there is a book two coming out in audio soon as I would love to revisit with all the Characters and enjoy their adventures.

A brilliant narrator and story!

What did you like best about this story?

I liked everything about this story. I love Sci fi so I thought I'll give the book a go since I have not read/listened to anything by this author. I am so glad that I did! I was hooked from the beginning.

It was slow to begin with, as there was no action, however this did not put me off. Actually the revise happened, I wanted to hear what was going to happen next.

There were twists in the book that I was not expecting. Yes there were one or two holes in the story however this did not put me off.

My favorite character has to be sergeant maker. I found him to be funny at times, loyal, courageous and intelligent.

Would recommend this book to those who love scifi with action/adventure.

What does Mikael Naramore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The narrator is one of the best that I have listened to. He suited this book really well. He bought out the characters, I felt I was listening to different people. I couldn't stop listening to this story. I felt it went quite quickly. I shall be listening to this narrator in the future.

Any additional comments?
