Publisher's Summary

The Dotari Salvation, book 1:

When the Terran Union has a mission that must not fail, it calls upon the Strike Marines. They are trained to improvise, adapt, overcome and win every fight.

A deadly disease threatens the Dotari, Earth’s allies, with extinction. The cure lies in deep space, and Lieutenant Hoffman and his team will join the starship Breitenfeld as it journeys into the void and makes a desperate attempt to save the dying race. Lurking in the abyss is a threat that’s waited with inhuman patience. Hoffman must lead his Marines through a gauntlet and evade a foe designed to hunt and kill them.

The Rage of Winter, book 2:

One Shot. One Kill. One sniper to strike fear in the heart of alien invaders.

Hoffman’s Strike Marines pursue enemy agents across a wintry world, desperate to stop an insidious threat festering in the heart of the Terran Union. Their hunt is disrupted when the fanatical Kesaht invade and the team is split across the snow and ice of a harsh planet. The team’s sniper, Duke, plays a deadly game of hit-and-run to slow the aliens' advance and earns the ire of the enemy commander. Hoffman, trapped in the frigid wilds, leads his Marines and their cunning prisoners back to the front, where they must join the fight against the Kesaht before the planet is lost.

Terran Strike Marines: Publisher's Pack is an action-packed military science-fiction adventure set in the best-selling Ember War universe.

Great follow up with the familiar characters!

Love it. Though some characters do sound like others from the previous books, the storyline and the characters and the narration are so good that it’s not a big deal. Can’t wait for more! So glad the author decided to continue with this story!

I really wanted to like this, but . . .

I loved the Ember War books, and this is built on the same general universe. However, it's almost boring. They get in a fight with aliens . . . the battle is described in minute detail . . . they win the battle . . . and then get into another fight with aliens . . . etc., etc. The best part, (aside from Luke Daniel's narration), is that there are some good personalities in the book. But the story just isn't exciting.

WHAAAA?

Ok, I enjoyed the Ember Wars series but every spin off gets more out there and more confusing. This series I can't even figure out the storyline. I give up, no more!

Love the story line

This series nicely fits with the ongoing Terran saga against the Tothe and is shaping up to be another epic.

Horrible narration...

I gave the story 2 stars because the dialogue between characters was just plain stupid. The narration even more so. I made it maybe 8 minutes into the book and pulled the plug... if you’re looking for any form of intellectual challenge... this is not it...

The spark from the ember war series is reignited!

the saga continues with new characters and new challenges written with the same heart as the ember war series.

I really enjoyed this

Having recently started listening to audiobooks, I found that LitRPG books were best able to hold my limited attention span, so when a regular story like this one is able to do so as well if not better then it's a remarkable achievement. Luke Daniels is awesome as usual, giving each character a distinct voice and personality. It helps when the author writes such good characters with which to work. Garrison is a particular favorite in both books, and Duke really shines in book 2.

The first book felt a tiny bit slow to start but still good. When the main story kicked off it kicked hard. The action and suspense was intense. I especially love hearing military terminology I'm quite familiar with in books.
Book 2 started off quick but the endless trudging through snow slowly started to bog me down just a bit, but it picked up just in time before it became tedious. I felt there were some tropes heavily borrowed from other scripts like Borg and the Hulk, but it was still good and never felt like a rehash of anything else.

If you like space opera that's a mix between Hammer's Slammers and Starship Troopers then you should really enjoy this.

Still good listening, but lacked Excitement

Still OK, and enjoyed it, but not gripping to the extent of wanting to keep listening. Taken 3 weeks to finish so shows the lack of Excitement.

I couldn't listen to this

The story seemed ok, however I couldn't deal with the accents and the shear amount of pauses, so I couldn't complete more than an hour of it in the end.

Not the best but certainly not the worst.

The story isn't bad at times its quite enjoyable. the first book giving a sort of alien / starship troopers kinda vibe. the second, seems to fragment off into so many different perspectives i feel it loses clarity. As such you spend time listening to insignificant events i found as they had no great benefit to or for the story overall.
the narrator takes a little getting used to but puts in a solid performance with different characters my only negative impression would be that he tends to speed through a combat scene at such a pace. ( probably feeling this adds to the tension) it becomes a distraction to listen to.

A Decent Sci-fi story

It's not worthy of ranting about but worthy of a decent score. The plot is interesting if a little USA centric, starts on a US public holiday, the only alien captured is captured in the US, the man the aliens seem to trust is American. I get it an American author, America being the big super power it was back then, and the American gun ho attitude/military. Nowadays it can be a bit on the nose but I didn't think it was that bad. The hero has to come from somewhere and most writers write their heroes to be where they are from and as the hero they would like to be.

There could have been more action and the story being told from the first person narrative meant it was his recollection of what happened instead of the action happening around you. A problem I always find in first person action books. At least the humans weren't outgunning anybody and were on the lowest stand of the totem pole which we would be if any alien life could master faster than light technology to make it to Earth.

All in all I enjoyed the book, not a great book but a decent, enjoyable one. I'd like to give it an extra half star but Audible is limited to whole stars and I don't think it deserves 4 therefore 3 stars.
