Publisher's Summary

Commander Jonathan Radec is a man desperately trying to escape from the mistakes of his past. Now the owner of Vanguard Shipping, his primary concerns are trying to keep his ships flying and his crew alive. However, the shadowy Syndicate organization has set their sights on the commander and his business, having sent a beautiful assassin to kill him. To make matters worse, she's become the target of his infatuation, much to the dismay of his ex-girlfriend. Recently elevated to president of the Confederation, she's still very much in love with him and capable of making his life a living hell.
Surrounded by a galaxy beginning to tear itself apart, with enemies on all sides, he's now also unwillingly tasked with trying to save the Confederation - for which he has little regard. Jon has little going in his favor, except a crew consisting of the elite of the old Imperial Navy, all of whom would fight to the death for him, and a past that possibly makes him one of the most dangerous men alive.

Most Helpful

Entertaining but very cheesy

The Bad:

Too much smut for a book of this sort. I'd gladly exchange smut for science world building content
Too cheesy: boy from the wrong side of the tracks meets princess, blah, blah, blah
Too stereo-typed: I guess the cold war is back on, all Russian sounding people are evil
No diversity: There are only white people in the future

The Good:

The narrator is solid and does a very large range of accents very well indeed. He's very easy to listen to, I wish he'd read game of thrones books, then I would purchase them

The writing is not terrible, it's good enough to be entertaining but not good enough to have made any impact on the reader/listener. It was entertaining enough for me to get the next book. I don't feel that author has added anything to the genre.

Since I listened to Steven Moss's "Fear the Sky" I am yet to listen to another Scifi book that comes close in terms of writing and story quality. I wait impatiently for "Fear the Survivors"
