    Description

    Thrilling science-fiction adventure from best-selling authors Larry Correia and John Brown.

    The heart of a warrior

    Once, Jackson Rook was a war hero. Raised from boyhood to pilot an exosuit mech, he’d fought gallantly for the rebellion against the Collectivists. But that was a long time ago, on a world very far away. 

    Now, Jackson Rook is a criminal, a smuggler on board the Multipurpose Supply Vehicle Tar Heel. His latest mission: steal a top-of-the-line mech called the Citadel and deliver it to the far-flung planet Swindle, a world so hostile even the air will kill you. The client: a man known only as the Warlord. 

    Rook has been in the smuggling business long enough to know that it’s best to take the money and not ask questions. But Rook cannot stand by and watch as the Warlord runs roughshod over the citizens of Swindle, the way the Collectivists did on his homeworld. For all his mercenary ways, Rook is not a pirate. And deep within the smuggler, the heart of a warrior still beats.

    Agree with Others

    What a let down this book was. I have enjoyed nearly everything Larry Correia has written. This book, though, falls well short. Meandering, unfocused, unenthusiastic and dull. I am very disappointed in this book.

    Correia didn't write this

    The books is badly overwritten, with lots of unnecessary words, lots of repeating words, lots of completely superfluous descriptions, etc. In need of very heavy-handed editing.

    It strives to be hardcore sci-fi mixed with hustle-story mixed with mechs, but falls flat and far off all marks.

    The technology (sci-fi part) is boring and contrived. The descriptions of the battles are copy-pasted. The hustle scenes can't enliven this because they depend too heavily on, you guessed it, boring plot-specific technology.

    I doubt Larry Correia, who is an actually good, versatile and talented writer, had a lot to do with it except give an advice or two on plot.

    Oh, and here is the best part: the plot setting is rip-stolen from Harrison's "Deathworld".

    Don't know if I'll return it.
    Do know that I'll never listen to it again.

    Solid SciFi adventure.

    Well done. Great characters and story arc, with a twisting morality compass that lets the reader see all sides. Fun tech, excellent story telling and world building. hoping this is the beginning of a LONG and interesting series of books.

    Wanted to like it

    The story never was engaging enough for me to want to continue. I got about 7 hours in, and I’m giving up.

    Performance—The voices he does for different characters are good, but almost every sentence has that classic, dramatic “in a world...” voice. It really started to get to me at some point. Not enough variation in the narration.

    Authentically Larry and John

    Both Larry and John are known for their fantasy and thriller writing and I have read both of their works and they bring the best of their experience to a thrilling science fiction adventure. I love the pace, action, and the world they built it is the true cyber punk future everyone would want to live in.

    Amazing characters, interesting take on the future

    I absolutely loved the protagonists fight with his inner demons, while trying to make things right. The various supporting characters all had amazing stories and a dynamic life of their own. Loved the action, loved the intrigue, loved the fact that the characters all had a code they try to live by. I'm looking forward to more from this sci-fi universe.

    Another great story from a multi-genre rock star!

    I have yet to read a single thing written by Larry Correia that failed to entertain. The man’s ability to tell a story, regardless of format or genre, puts and keeps him in a very thin pack of authors. His characters are relatable, his plots engaging, and his delivery intense. Buy the damned book.

    Comfortably Fun

    I haven’t read (or listened to) sci-fi in a long time, but I’m glad I came back to it for “Gun Runner.” This was a FUN story. The characters are familiar, but in a comfortable way - rather than being predictable, they’re like good friends that you’re waiting to show up, and then they do. The story didn’t run deep, but it didn’t have to in order to be really entertaining, and it was. And Oliver Wyman delivered big as the narrator. Anyone who can pull off a number of different characters like he does here, male and female, and different accents to boot, deserves major kudos.
    Way to go, Correa and Brown - I’m really hoping this turns into a series, because if it does I’m in.
