another battle

I received a free code for this book.
Have enjoyed following the life of Henry, Another good story in the saga of the war. The reading was a little too stacato, but didn't put me off.

Good Storyline though something is off

So I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review and I have to say it was a good story. Though something was off about it, I couldn't tell if it was the way the narrator was reading it or it was the way the story was written. the only way I can describe is as a disconnect from how people talk, almost like the narrator was reading the words not the story. The story was good but it just kept sucking me out of the book and back to reality I could never get lost in the story.

Out of the Frying Pan...

The Chameleons have switched sides in the war, joining with the Titans against humanity and Henry Gallant gets the job of trying to take the Chameleons back out of the fight. The mammoth starship of the Chameleons poses special problems for Gallant’s taskforce and Alesso does a great job of making this extended battle very different than those that have come before. We also see the starfighter pilots under Gallant’s commands continue to grow and develop with their mix of strengths and flaws, adding a lot of depth to the story.

Always on my mind as I read was the worsening political situation on earth as characters we have grown to despise over the preceding books win the election which must ultimately hurt earth’s chances of surviving the war. It will be interesting to see how Alesso uses this situation to make Gallant’s life even more difficult in future novels.

Exciting military science fiction!

Story opens well, with great organization of the narrative throughout! There are no “quantum leaps” in author’s depiction of situations. Vocal pressure is accomplished in a professional manner.
I would recommend this audiobook for ages 17 and older due to violence.
I was given this audiobook for free and I freely give it my rating and opinion

good addition to series

A complex story arc for the United Planets' fight against two alien empires. A great new character, Kate, with intriguing puzzle solving ideas that make a difference to the war.

"A key is a powerful thing."

Henry Gallant and the Great Ship, continues the career, and life, of Henry Gallant, a Natural, excelling in a world of the genetically enhanced. This military space science fiction series is both enjoyable and
combining exciting action with character. Providing sweeping pictures rather than concentrating on technical detail, it is accessible to everyone. This time, again narrated by Rich Miller, the listening is smooth, enhancing the written word with good pacing, articulation, intonation and individually distinctive voicings for the various protagonistsl: another good performance.

The Henry Gallant series by Peter Alesso is an easy to read, enjoyable military S.F.work which concentrates on character interaction as well as battles against a powerful alien race, the Titans. Another race which appeared: was initially friendly but a subsequent attack now seems to suggest another enemy as the powerful Great Ship, with excellent stealth technology, threatens to overwhelm the Earth resources. This, the seventh book, is, like it's predecessors, recommended reading for all S.F.fans. My thanks to the rights holder of Commodore Henry Gallant, who, at my request freely gifted me with a complimentary copy via Audiobook Boom. The books can be read as stand alone but improve if read, in succession, from volume 1.
