High level fleet tactics

This book is about the high level tactics involved in fleet and carrier combat. If you are looking for a shoot-em-up book you will be disappointed. This book was a great view into the thought process and work that is put into planning a battle. The characters not only think about the optimal strategy but also what their opponent might do and how to counter that aswell as how they will be countered. The story buildup is believable and the conclusion is satisfying.

If you have always wondered what went on before the big space battle or what duties the Admiral of a fleet deals with this book will fill in that gap.

Great story but narration is too fast

The story was great and character development was superb. I just felt that the maturation was too fast. The action sequences were great but points in the story where the pacing slowed down didn’t have a slow down in performance. I feel like spots where there should have been tension are rushed past.

Good story but lacking depth

I enjoyed the story and relished in the action but this book didn’t deliver on any deep characterization. All the other books of Galaxy’s edge all have action and adventure but where they really shine is in the emotional characterization we see in the protagonist. The character of Tyrus Rechs is as emotional as a boulder and while that fits the character it is a little unfulfilling. I would like to see some more depth from Tyrus.

The story starts out so tame and carefree showing us the wonderful world of Peter Pan. The beauty of the story is that there is no single moment where you feel the characters grow up, they just start to feel older and older. Lockstep with the story Samuel Roukin deepens the voices of the children after each traumatic moment. Looking back at the end of the book I can’t point to a single defining moment why but, the character of Captain Hook becomes deeply relatable.

This is the one that starts to get too weird. The other two were very silly but still grounded to some sort of reality. This one goes off the rails and dumps any of the plot or story from the first two

As much as I love the story of Skippy and Joe I had started to feel that the story was getting stale. This book brought a whole new dimension to the universe and pushed some new characters to the fore front. I feel that as we meet new aliens and new worlds the story will have a lot more substance going forward.

Great little side story

The story and performance were both amazing. I just wish the price was a little more reasonable.

This short story was a lot of fun to listen to as it gave a new look on the world of Sherlock Holmes. Moriarty comes across as a hero and we can't help but root for him despite knowing that he is a bad person. I feel like it would have been nice if it were a little longer and there was a little bit more interaction with other known characters. I would have also liked for there to have been a way that the three stories could have been a bit more connected. #Audible1

I felt that nothing happened in this story. From the high action of the other books and time spent with characters I have grown to love this was boring. It was the life story of a character I don’t care about. You can easily skip this book and not miss out on anything.

I enjoyed the story but I found the reading was the weakest part. Bronson made the characters sound like sour wimps and his female voices make them sound weak even in moments of great courage.
