Summary

Helga Ate is finally getting her chance. Chosen for a coveted slot in the glorious Nighthawks, Special Forces, she will certainly be able to prove herself as more than a half-alien outcast.  

But when her team deploys to the moon of Dyn, tragedy strikes, and Helga is put to the ultimate test - survival. Facing insurmountable odds and escaping torture, Helga and her mentor, Cilas Mec, are forced to face a fate worse than death. Battling brain-eating aliens and human pirates, the odds are stacked against them in every way. The rescue should be coming.

Unless the Alliance is involved in this botched mission....

Can Helga survive the odds to get out alive, or will she be the last of the Nighthawks?

An Awesome beginning !!!

Greg Dragon is doing it again,
This is the first book of a series and from the first line he gets you hooked.
Usually you can’t wait for a twist in the story which will overwhelm you but here for the first time the book starts with an unknown twist which overwhelm you much later, truly a nice and an unextecbel trick.
By choosing Cari Scholtens as a narrator perfected this into an audio masterpiece.

Absolutely and fully
Recommended !!!

A solid sci-fi story.

A solid military sci-fi story, with good characters and an interesting story and setting.

The narration is well done and is easy to listen to. Each character sounds distinctive and the narration fits the tone of the story.

All in all this is well worth a listen.

This book was given to me for free and I provided this voluntary review.

Should have been born with wings

It starts like many other military S.F. books, young rookie pilot joining the elite team of the special forces squadron, the legendary Nighthawks. The seven man team knew and trusted each other, had worked together, were already a 'family'. She was new, young, and a woman who had, all her life, experienced rejection by virtue of her birth and didn't like the way they looked down on her. She had to prove herself to become one of them. But almost before she has a chance to do so, things change, throwing the whole story not just into a series of battling aliens (with whom the Alliance had been at war for more than a century) and pirates but also with a central mystery - why was everything going so wrong now?

Clearly written, with an host of well characterized protagonists, and excellent world building formed with a paucity of words, the story weaves it's way between characters and ships, suspicions and fighting, the brooding mystery becoming ever more prevelant. Fear is palpable. This is fighting for survival.

Narration by Cari Scholtens is good, not easy for a woman to give realistic voicing to a predominantly male range of characters. But she does it , and does it well, each being distinctive in tone and accent. The text reading between conversation is also steady, well paced with good intonation and conducted in the manner more of observer than participant, not getting excited when the action hotted up but leaving that part to the reader's imagination. It works well.

Last of the Nighthawks is the first in Greg Dragon's new series, Lady Hellgate, which will presumably follow the progress of our rookie, now much more experienced, into future adventures, a series i personally do not want to miss. My thanks to the rights holder who, at my reqhest, freely gifted me a complimentary copy, via Audiobook Boom. I am an admirer of the author's previous books, but this is one of his best. Good science fiction, and recommended.

A great SciFi action story

This title had everything that I love, fast action, great story, likable characters and frequent twists and turns. I felt like the writer really brought the main characters to life and with the smooth narration it was easy to get immersed in the story. Upon finishing this audiobook I went straight to see if I could get the next one to be disappointed that it has not been released.

Exciting new adventure

This book involves the development of a young girl who has been assigned to an elite military unit. She is the newest member and joins them after several missions where they have lost members. Her role as backup pilot quickly morphs into being a fighter in order for her to stay alive after the mission finds itself betrayed and almost destroyed.

The book is well written and the action top notch. It reveals the inner struggles of a futuristic battle to defeat an alien invader and the courage of the people and also the betrayal from within.

The story is narrated exceptionally well and the narrator does an outstanding job with multiple voices and is clearly understandable.

This book was provided free of charge with the expectation of an honest review.
