Some great stories here, some less great.

As with any anthology, there will be some good books as well as some less good books, but on the whole I would say this is definitely worth the listen, even if only for The Iron Within by Rob Sanders. That short story alone is worth it. It is an incredibly well written piece with a very satisfying ending.
Other books in here that I really enjoyed are The Face of Treachery by Gav Thorpe, Savage Weapons by Aaron Dembski-Bowden and Rules of Engagement by Graham McNeill.
There are a couple that I felt missed the mark, either being a bit too slow or too weird. Rebirth being the standout example of this.

Overall, well worth a listen.

very good for a short story collection

thought it was going to be bad because the book was just a bunch of short stories, but they were all actually really good and captivating. highly reccomend not skipping this book.

Short stories

It’s hard to provide an accurate review of the book as it’s a collection of short stories.
Some of the stories are written wonderfully and some poorly.
