Publisher's Summary

Building a new empire is supposed to be dangerous, but training the next generation of leaders?

That's not supposed to be dangerous, right?

Follow us as we have the people in the Etheric Empire setting up a special academy to train the first set of teens on a leadership track. They are supposed to learn about the different groups in the Etheric Empire. Unfortunately, some of the members of those teaching teams tapped to train the kids don't realize how...adventurous...the teens can be.

Especially if the teachers are Team BMW.

Travel with us as we are introduced to Alpha Class, one of the teams in the new Etheric Academy as they merge humans and Wechselbalg (Weres) in a group of five young adults as they learn to become the first cohesive group on their first assignment.

With Team BMW as their teachers, nothing could go wrong, right?

A Kurtherian Gambit adventure for younger listeners...or those who are young at heart.

Book 1

Very entertaining story of a young class of space kids discovering a new alien ship. Team BMW (Bobcat, Marcus, & William) play a major role in the adventure - the three misfits crack me up each time. The narrator did an awesome job with providing unique individual voices for each character. Definitely recommend!

Better than expected

Was worried that YA might lose the KG feel, but this worked well. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

More a Short Story

I am not a Kurtherian Gambit addict but I tried the original now that Honor Harrington is infrequent and my favorite Bujold is semi-retired. Definitely not up to those standards but it's a bit like the Omega Force books I like. So I've read the series but the spin offs are flat.

This spin off is the worst. The entire story could have been done as a short story, it's kinda teen material not appealing to old folks like me, and I literally got nothing from the story. Like literally I can barely remember more than team BMW screwing up again. Think I'll pass on these books.

Simply, LOVED IT!

I recommend it for all those who love a good read, especially all kids, and kids who love to use their imaginations 😏. (Especially kids of all ages who are struggling 😧with reading. 😉 Sh! Don't let the secret out but this series will make you want to just keep reading, no matter when it is. Your mind comes alive as you read it. Even better it doesn't get old when you reread it.😏 You start wanting the next books to come out faster so that you can keep reading them.😬 That's 👌because there amazing reads 😉.

Good story, lackluster narration

The story was great but I kept wanting to doze off with the narrator’s voice, tone and direction. I’ll continue the book series due to me being a completionist I want to say more about the story but it’s hard to think about it with the narration

Awesome intro for YA readers into the KGU!

This is a great start for YA readers into the KG Universe. A light hearted story, with characters they can grow with. Learning more as they get older. This narrator is one of my favorites.

For my Granddaughter

This my third time through this book. The first two I read on Kindle and did not leave a review. It is now summertime and my Granddaughter is looking for some more books and I remembered this YA series from my favorite series of books. I listened to it and yes it is just as good as I remembered and I think an excellent intro to the Kurtherian Universe for my Granddaughter. It should be the right combination of characters (children) and story (space, adventure, kids overcoming tough situations) to hold my Granddaughter’s interest.

a bit boring

I felt it was very boring, it needed to be cut by half to make an improvement. also it needed a different reader as this one sent me to sleep.
