I read this book by listening to the audible version, and in the beginning, I was wondering just who it was doing the editing for this version. Bad chapter endings (words cut off) repeated sentences, and some background noises made this one of the worse audible books I've ever had the misfortune of listening to. Fortunately, the second half of the book was considerably better, so that's something at least. Otherwise, this was an excellent book. It seemed a bit childish at first, (foul language used for no reason, sexual references running rampant), but as the book continued, it became such a part of the story, they eventually became unnoticed, and finally petered out near the very end, though they were still there. If we disgard that nonsense, this was an excellent story, and I'm very happy to have read it. This is exactly the kind of thing I read scifi to find, and this story had it all, aliens, space travel, problem solving (in new and unique ways), and a general all arond sound thrashing by the good guys (eventually). I don't recall the rest of the books in this series being quite like this one, but it has been a while since I read them, so perhaps I'm just not remembering properly, but I do have to sa, except for the issues mentioned above, I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and would suggest it for anyone looking for some good old fashioned space adventuring. :-). *spoilers ahead* The plastic aliens are baaaack! I think they have to be the creepiest and scariest thing ever created in and out of fictional literature, beats vampires and werewolves hands down, but dammit I love when theyre a part of the book, caus theyre just so omnipotent and I want to know more! This book was a lot better than I thought it would be, especialy considering my favourite part of this series is the military aspect and what with Torin resigning from the military that wasnt going to be such a big part of this book.But yet for me this beats books two and three hands down, doesnt quite come close to number one which remains my all time favourite (I read it for the first time a few days ago and I already want to read it again) but it definitely slightly beats book 4.So yeah the basic premise is Craig is kidnapped by space pirates... space pirates haha! and Torin is her usual badarsery self and kicks intergalactic arse (sorry had to say it) in her quest to get the love of her life back. I loved Torins attempts to adjust to civilian life, and I also love how shes still the same character we know and love from the previous books. its mentioned a few times in the book - there is no such thing as an ex-gunnery sergeant, and Torin certainly proves this.I eagerly await the next book, give me more Torin and aliens!
I'll never look at plastic the same way again......ok that's a lie :DAmazing book series.
Of course they show back up...but made more sense than the last book.
Torin continues to kick butt and never take no for an answer.
Good read as always. Better than the last book.
