Summary

This publisher's pack contains Commando and Guerrilla, the first two books in The Royal Marine Space Commando series.

Commando, Book 1:

A young lieutenant. A fleet of alien invaders. Will first contact be humanity’s last stand?

In his short military career, Lieutenant Warden has already battled insurgent groups, criminal gangs, and intergalactic pirates. When a distant colony sends out a distress signal, he and his fellow space commandos can't wait to transfer their consciousness and launch their clone bodies into action. But no amount of enthusiasm could've prepared Warden for humanity's first alien encounter and the ensuing bloodbath.

After his captain falls to the attack, Warden feels both pride and fear as he assumes first in command. Outmanned and outgunned, the confident commando must find a way to eliminate the aliens before they slaughter an entire human colony.

Will Warden’s troops prove they are made of tougher stuff, or have they finally met their fatal match?

Guerrilla, Book 2:

A ruthless invasion. An outmatched colony. A Commando's last chance offensive.

Lieutenant Warden just barely survived a relentless attack on the New Bristol colony. The Royal Marine Space Commando has orders to defend his post until support arrives. But when Lt. Warden learns of a nearby enemy base that could wipe out far more than the colony, his mission transforms from protective to suicidal.

To save countless lives, Lt. Warden must raid an unstoppable enemy and take out one of the most powerful warships in the galaxy. No pressure or anything. Avoiding huge walking tanks and technology far beyond their own, the RMSC has one chance to get this right.

Can Lt. Warden pull off the incredible, or will losing the battle cost them the war?

If you like fast-paced action, interstellar battles, and characters with nerves of steel, then you’ll love Jon and James Evans’s thrilling saga.

Good story

Being an ex soldier and a Brit it's, good to listen to a sci-fi from an English view point also having been deployed with Royal Marines they have a warped sense of humour. Plus I also live near Fort Widley looking forward to listening to the other books

Lacks depth

A potentially interesting story that lacks the world building required of great sci-fi. It focuses too much on the minutiae. The authors also remove all consequences of death, which means the battles (80% of the story) are fairly meaningless.

Good storyline, too many "F" bombs

This was a good story. Lots of action. I liked the characters. But it seemed like the "F" word popped up at too many inappropriate places. The story would be going along great, then a person would use the "F" word. And it would be totally inconsistent with the person's character in the story. Imagine watching "Sound of Music" and having Julie Andrews blurt out the "F" word. I'm not opposed to a little vulgarity, where appropriate. But this was over the top. I won't buy any sequels.

fun but repetitive

fun to listen to and I don't regret it, but it it's kind of repetitive. kind of a mindless action flick. the story is average but not terrible by any means. the characters' growth and maturity throughout the story is a footnote, so I was hard pressed to really connect with any of them. four stars of it had better character development.
the performance was mostly average, with good emotion but difficult to distinguish easily between character voicing.
