Description

They called it The Recruitment. Thousands were kidnapped and trained to fight. One fought back.  

James Cook was a gamer headed for the biggest gaming match on Earth. Instead the Planetary Defense Force kidnapped him, his team and 20,000 others.  

Their alien trainers don't care how many of them survive, they only care that they can fight.   

James Cook was a gamer, but his avatar Salchar, he was a fighter, a leader, and the man the recruits need. James must put his doubts about himself aside, there's no guide to this, no strategy and it's definitely not a game. He will need to become Salchar, with one goal, to protect his people.  

This is the story of Salchar, his recruits, and the Rise of their Free Fleet.

just terrible

well the best way to describe it. is its written like a anime. NO thought given to tactics or any sort of sense. you want me to believe that a kid that plays a game can beat a trained soldier in a fight ? I just struggled to finish it and since I bought it I thought I would. but all the senseless drama girl likes boy but every time they are face to face she insults him and tried to kill him. makes sense. I wont be buying the others. I regret buying this one

A worthwhile series and an imaginative author

Having read and listened to books one through five I find far less concerned with the series's impact on my primary and tertiary education than it's entertainment values. If considering the purchase for the first time I would disregard "helpful" negative reviews with no substance. Labeling such as "helpful" is admitting that a person's vague negative impression is enough to turn one's interest. On to the subject at hand...

As with all sci-fi there is an expectation that we need to suspend our beliefs. When telling such a story you can try explaining the technology or you can simply say "this is fact". As a reader it helps to remember that the author created the world and thus things are just as they say. As mankind does tend to attribute the creators of universes. We can enjoy the tale of struggles and triumphs in an harsh galaxy where trust, loyalty and candor are the rarest and most precious of resources.

This series revolves around a group of characters that are under constant threat in a sector so brutalized that altruism has been all but abolished. It is a harsh environment of tragedy, betrayal(a bit too much of both for my taste without a greater reckoning), and controversy. Bad things happen, perhaps too many. Evil gains power. Selfishness prevails. Even those some consider great falter. The heroes have a long dark road to traverse. So be warned.

What makes it worth the price of a credit or the addition of narration to the kindle editions is the overall story. Suspend belief, ignore the few holes and pretend you are not the ultimate armchair tactician or the illegitimate heir to Stephen Hawking's research and enjoy being told as tale. These are the type of books that hold their value in their concepts. Said value measured in the number of times you think the word "cool".

In summary, the author is flawed(as we all are) and still growing as a writer but ultimately imaginative and willing to share the interesting entertaining worlds he creates. The work is, as I've said before, a look into the lives of the characters not a simple telling of a series of entertaining events. Verbose, yes, but I hope you find it helpful.

Painful

Terrible writing. Clearly does not understand show don’t tell. Desperate need of at least one rewrite and and editor. An interesting story and I wanted to like it but I can’t. The main character is a whiny bitch whose stupidity is almost as large as his sense of inadequacy. I won’t be reading the rest of the series.

Only finished because I was bored

This wasn’t that great. I thought it might be better because of the ten realms series the author wrote. It just lacked imagination and kinda seemed similar to how people talk about why they don’t like Superman with nothing can really hurt him. It’s just not what I expected and I won’t be reading any more in the series.

Could not finish.

I was most of the way through when I decided I didn't need to waste anymore time with it.

Skip this one

As said below this might be a good idea, but the writing needs help. I gave it about 45 minutes before I had to give up.

Painful to listen to.

I decided after reading other reviews and checking reviews on the sequels that I would give this a try. My mistake, I should have saved the credit. There is no believably in the writing and only gets confusing in some places. The main character is a gamer with God like fame telling adults and children he will lead them. At the same he has a Air Force reservist who thinks guard is a MOS and ripping steel out of a wound and slapping a bandage on it is good enough for government work. The book is a teenager dream written down on paper.

Massive scaling of gear, skills, tech

In two days. Not my favorite from MC. I give this a C- / D+ .

Audible's rating is:
1 Star is "not for me"
2 Stars "it is okay"
3 Stars "pretty good"
4 Stars "it's great"
5 Stars "I love it"

How I see the stars.
A one star book could be a very dry topic, story,crude or someone preaching down to the reader. I generally don't have 1 star books. I will just return them and go my own way. My last 3 were from the same series, I had hit a very dry spot in my listening.

A 2 star story, would be something that was phoned in by a writer that typically has done much better work. I have a couple of reviews from authors that just seemed to phone it in, one most recently from an author that decided to mix current politics into his novel. If I wanted that, I would just watch the news.

A 3 star review is where I really start. It means I enjoyed the book. That I did not have a hard time following it (I have lost alot of my conversational hearing). That the story kept to a plot, the characters were not static, and the world built was plausable.

A 4 star review is something that I really enjoyed. It puts the author on my map to keep an eye out for. I go through 12-15 books a month. (audible is my primary source of entertainment. ) I will search for the author's works regularly, and seek out their stories for future purchases.

A 5 star review, These are not as rare as one would think. These are the books where the characters grow, learn, act according to their nature. Where the world is not only plausible but believable. Where there are economic systems, businesses, rules of law that make sense. Where the story is woven is progressed and told with caring and dedication. These are books, series, authors and narrators that bring it all in a package.

So, when reading my reviews, if anyone does, that is how I judge the books.

Ridiculously Good

Quite enjoyable; not really a space combat (ship to ship); more boarding party insurgency stuff.

Awful. Truly awful.

The story was trite and uninspired. That's the kindest thing I can say about this drivel.
