From best-selling author Mark Wayne McGinnis comes the highly anticipated Scrapyard Ship spin-off series, Star Watch.
The Craing War is now over... the enemy defeated. As planetary systems around the galaxy try to bring normalcy back to their existence, one thing becomes crystal clear... without the Craing around to keep everyone in line, space has become a far more dangerous place.
With tens of thousands of warships idle, along with hundreds of thousands of Allied crew personnel sitting on their hands, it's up to Admiral Perry Reynolds whether or not to send the combatants home, and mothball most of the ships. But as more and more requests for prompt Allied assistance come in from the farthest reaches of outer space (i.e. for minor incursions into sovereign territory; or others, more serious - including barbaric planetary invasions), Admiral Reynolds is compelled to introduce a new stellar over-watch program. With his own career winding down, one of his final directives will be in the formation of a special intergalactic marshaling service... Star Watch. The admiral has the perfect ship lined up for the task - the most advanced warship in the known galaxy: the mile-long Caldurian vessel - the Minian. Next he needs to outfit the ship with a captain and crew he can trust to get this far-range venture initiated properly.
Across the galaxy, young Boomer, daughter of Captain Jason Reynolds, begins her training in the ancient fighting methods of the Kahill Callan, and prepares to battle against Lord Vikor Shakrim - leader of the dreaded Sahhrain warriors.

Did not enjoy
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I alternate between Audible and podcasts during the gym and my commute. Typically I start an Audible story and I get hooked and can't stop listening during every available minute. Not this one. I often took breaks to listen to news podcasts and other material. The story was not engaging and often seemed formulaic and stale. I went to listen to continue listening a couple of days ago but realized it was over. I didn't notice that I'd finished and now, just 3-4 days later, I don't even recall the ending.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I did not like the narrator. To me he came across as imitating some sort of 1950s stereotypical scifi story telling style.

This book continues the Scrap yard ship series.
If you liked the Scrap yard ship series then you will like this book because it picks up where that series left off.
