Publisher's Summary

The Tasmanian's unofficial motto is et anima una: of one mind.

Somehow, the elite special forces group performs like they have one mind. Jolie understands on a subconscious level, but not on an intellectual level. This is an important level for Jolie, as she has a platoon and no stated objectives while on assignments and, therefore, easy to lose her connection with the main force. A problem that could make her unfit for the Tasmanians....

long awaited audible book three

Once again a great listen.
Emily Woo Zeller does a great job with voice skills.
As I usually buy the Kindle edition first yes I knew what was coming but for those who haven't. I won't spoil it for you.
My only suggestion would be to get audible books one and two first.
C.R. Daems has become one of my favorite authors. Just like the Red Angel series is this hard to put away.

Continuing the Drama

Will there be a book 4 and if so, when?
I am enjoying the banter and stories.

I loved the entire series.

I couldn't wait to hear the next book. The narration was excellent.
Is there any more books. I really enjoyed the Fox's narration of her after action reports on the return to base.
Also the actions was as close to the actual combat as you will ever see or hear about.
I hope you continue this series as I can't wait to enjoy it too. 😊

It's more of the same so if you liked the first 2 you will be happy with this one.

I should have stopped listening.

all this book is is the same stinking theme over and over and over again, and does the author have a thesaurus? because I'm pretty sure there's other words then quip! you don't need to explain how they don't have rank eight times throughout two chapters, you can probably skip the first 20 chapters as they are just them going out doing a thing and her coming back and saying something witty. very disappointed in this book, was hoping that the author would actually write a book instead of just filling up pages with words.

Another AMAZING book.

I highly recommend this series. It’s entertainingly funny and has lots of military content. Jolie is a great character. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my second time reading this series. As well as His book Talon and the 2 book Gypsy series. One of my favorite authors. I hope he writes lots more books.

Standing Ovation

I would read 10 more of this series. I love the lack of emphasis on a heroine's love life and the more nitty gritty familial military ties

I need more of this series

first of all, Medina is in love with Jolie and I ship them so hard!! I want them to hook up, as I can't see her with anyone else. she's met her dad and is always around, just saying.

I love this series, one thing that bothered me is how all these men threaten Jolie and they all seat around to watch her fight, but in this book you see more of them standing up for her without making her look weak. I wanted to see more of that.

I love the ghost platoon so much!! I need this series.

Getting a bit samey

This book suffers from much of what affected the last two. The main character is an insufferable Mary Sue who has almost no faults and gets along brilliantly with everyone she interacts with other than thuggish side characters who are quickly put in their place.

The missions they are sent on often seem very like Earth special forces missions which makes little sense with space-faring civilisation. "Go here and kill some mountain men with rifles who are causing trouble." "Go here and kill some sex slavers." They never use drones or high tech gear but repeatedly talk about Glocks, Rugby, Native Americans and other terms that really date the story to a time period centuries before it is set.

Every time the characters go anywhere we get the "Tazmanians don't salute and don't have rank spiel." WE KNOW! This is the third book in the series hearing "Their minds were blown by the Tazmanian pay scale" for the fortieth time did nothing for me. Similarly with jocks walking into the bar and challenging the main character to a fight she easily wins. I think that has happened in every bar scene.

There was one undercover mission that varied a bit from the established norms but it quickly fell back into the regular routine.

The scenes on the transport leg of any mission have to be skipped as in previous books. The dialogue is so badly written and so cringey that it will cause you almost physical pain to listen to. I don't know why the author keeps putting them in. They aren't funny but perhaps they appeal to their repetitive instincts.

We will hear how great the MC is in every section. "She is the only female Tasmanian." "She has the only permanent platoon." etc. etc. I got really tired of that too. The MC using a "pouty face" and making really girly comments all the time go old as well. Perhaps the narrator wasn't sarcastic enough. I don't know.

The whole thing is quite badly written too. You'll get plenty of unnecessary exposition, unnatural dialogue and repetition.

I thought the narrator could have used a wider range of male accents but they did quite well.

That being said, the first part did put a smile on my face and I did enjoy the book generally. It's pulp trash but most of it is quite fun and easy listening. Sort of like "White Chicks", it won't win any Oscars but there are worse things to have on while you do the ironing.

More Of The Same

This is the third book in the series and it helps to have read the first two to understand the characters and history in this one.

This book is essentially more of the same. If you read and enjoyed the first two books in the series you will probably enjoy this one too. There is little character or plot development. It is simply a series of adventures that Joile goes on.

This is not a deep book, but it is entertaining with humour and action in every chapter. One thing I do likes that the Joile isn’t superhuman. She makes mistakes and gets punished for making them by getting injured or damaging her platoon members. There are also long stints between actions which makes sense given they are such a specialist unit. They train and help others train which helps them be as good as they reputed to be, which helps make their endeavours more believable. I also like that Joile understands that without the incredible men in her platoon she would have to work much much harder because their experience helps counteract her inexperience in certain areas. She is in charge because she sees things differently and that’s why she’s been placed in charge of her small team. Their skills allow her to give instructions about what she wants to achieve and they accomplish it without hesitation. Their bond is strong and their is a great deal of affection between them all and they are very protective of Joile.

As with the previous books, the narrator is excellent and provides much of the enjoyment for me. She conveys the different characters easily and exhibits a great deal of versatility when in comes to voices. I always enjoy Emily Woo Zeller’s work and always look for her books.

It’s a fun series and I may look into reading some of the others by this author for when I’m in the mood for action without being forced to work too hard for it.

Must listen

I love reading / listening about the Tasmanians, there is a lot of snark and humour in these books, which make them seem more realistic to me. Hoping for more in the series soon.

Very good third

This is an excellent third book for an excellent character, well written and performed. The idea is to show how a woman with no femine characteristics fits into an all male environment. Good set of stories from book 1 on. More please

Absolutely Phenomenal, cannot get enough of the tasmanians. The story is amazing and is so filled with action and heroics I can't stop listening, so much so I need to go listen to all 3 books again. Hurry up with book number 4.

Military science fiction at its best

I really like military science fiction with a female protagonist and this was one of the best. I keep hoping though that she will develop a more intimate relationship than ‘sister’ with someone without it effecting her work.

Devastated It’s finished

Of One Mind !!! Wow I’m devastated that I’m finished this series. I loved them and devoured all three in four days, I’m lucky that I can listen while working. I will definitely be listening to these books again and they have gone into my favourites list.
Firstly the narrator did a fabulous job. She bought the books to life., made all characters real especially the main character. Also the rest of the Tassie’s
The author who was new to me, at book one did an excellent job. The books are interesting, with that touch of sarcasm and humour.. I laughed out loud, snorted in disgust, moaned in sympathy, felt soldiers of emotions at the antics of the main combatants.
Fabulous, I loved them all and highly recommend.
Just wish Joellee could have hooked up maybe once or twice, a little romance would have been the cream on top of the icing.
Being an Aussie I loved that a Tasmanian Devil was used as their major symbol..
Well done
