Nominee, Audie Awards - Audiobook of the Year, 2018

We were fighting on the wrong side of a war we couldn't win. And that was the good news.

The Ruhar hit us on Columbus Day. There we were, innocently drifting along the cosmos on our little blue marble, like the native Americans in 1492. Over the horizon come ships of a technologically advanced, aggressive culture, and BAM! There go the good old days, when humans only got killed by each other. So, Columbus Day. It fits.

When the morning sky twinkled again, this time with Kristang starships jumping in to hammer the Ruhar, we thought we were saved. The UN Expeditionary Force hitched a ride on Kristang ships to fight the Ruhar, wherever our new allies thought we could be useful. So, I went from fighting with the US Army in Nigeria, to fighting in space. It was lies, all of it. We shouldn't even be fighting the Ruhar, they aren't our enemy. Our allies are.

I'd better start at the beginning.

Thane A Grove ,

Simply AMAZING !!

The author and reader are talented, very funny and too cool for words. I was bent over laughing listening to this story so often, it was great fun. And the Mr. Alanson is so smart with his details and story line. Brilliant!! I’m going to be listening to the rest.
ps. This would make a fantastic animated series, like Star Blazers or Vultron.
Best, Thane

Wicked fun…and funny!

This is now my 2nd fav sci-fi author, right after John Scalzi! From page 1 I knew I was hooked! Excellent story, great characters and awesome narration! I just purchased book 2 and will do the same for the entire series.
