When a squad of Galactic Fleet Marines decide to do an opportunistic heist, they think it will be an easy smash and grab, but things go wrong and they are forced to run for their lives. The only escape is an unstable wormhole, but crossing through has some devastating results for their ship, and the are forced to check out an abandoned supply outpost, on a hostile planet. Upon arriving there, they find out that the place isn’t as abandoned as it seems.

This was a bit of a slow burner, but I still ended up enjoying it. The plot was enjoyable and had steady pacing, which ramped up when the fighting started! There were a few twists that I didn’t see coming but overall, I had an idea of where the story was going. Still it kept my attention till the end was entertaining!!

The characters were all well written and developed and I enjoyed reading about them. They were easily likable and you can’t help but root for them. I also enjoyed the A.I’s and the…. things that are on the planet. It was a unique take on things.

In all, it’s a good entertaining story. The ending wrapped up nicely, yet there are possibilities still there where a sequel may take place. I, for one, would definitely read another book with these characters.

I thoroughly enjoyed Andrew B. Wehrlen’s narration. He had plenty of tones and voices and read the story well. He was a good fit for this and I look forward to listening to more by him.

I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.
