Description

From the author of Planetside, a Best Book of 2018 (Library Journal) 

A military legend is caught in the web between alien intrigue and human subterfuge....

Following his mission on Cappa, Colonel Carl Butler returns to a mixed reception. To some, he is a do-or-die war hero. To the other half of the galaxy, he’s a pariah. Forced into retirement, he has resettled on Talca Four where he’s now Deputy VP of Corporate Security, protecting a high-tech military company on the corporate battlefield - at least, that’s what the job description says. Really, he’s just there to impress clients and investors. It’s all relatively low risk - until he’s entrusted with new orders. A breach of a competitor’s computer network has Butler’s superiors feeling every bit as vulnerable. They need Butler to find who did it, how, and why no one’s taken credit for the ingenious attack.

As accustomed as Butler is to the reality of wargames - virtual and otherwise - this one screams something louder than a simple hack. Because no sooner does he start digging when his first contact is murdered, the death somehow kept secret from the media. As a prime suspect, he can’t shake the sensation he’s being watched...or finally succumbing to the stress of his past. Paranoid delusion or dangerous reality, Butler might be onto something much deeper than anyone imagined. But that’s where Butler thrives.

If he hasn’t signed his own death warrant.

Great Story, Great Performance, Easy but Captivating Listen!

In Spaceside, Michael Mammay manages to craft a sequel that equals the original novel in enjoyment and quality writing. The pace is fast and the plot feels correct for the world built in the first novel.

I also enjoyed the author’s decision to forgo the constant re-telling of the first book so many authors feel is required. “Spaceside” can stand on its own as a novel. There is enough backstory to provide context. However, those that have read “Planetside” will get a much richer and emotional journey.

I also applaud the authors ability to write a novel that seems to ignore genre in the best possible way. Fans of mysteries and Clive Cussler style pseudo military thrillers will find “Spaceside” a great ride that just happens to occur in a sci-fi setting. While Sci-Fi fans will discover a classic sci-fi adventure that harkens back to the character driven masterpieces of the Heinlein era.

R.C. Bray is stellar as usual and brings a layer of emotion to the dialogue that enhances the experience of listening to this novel.

Even better than the first one

Great story and awesome narration. This story was even better than the first one which is tough because Planetside was also great. Really hope there are more stories coming from the author!

Mike Mammay has my vote for best author.

Spaceside is the continuation of Carl Butler's life after the events of Planetside. It's a brilliant adventure where the tenacious investigator is dropped into another snake pit situation without a clue what's really going on. He peels back the layers and subterfuge and inserts his wildcard into the events in play.

Really, really enjoyable listen. It's elegant, cerebral writing that's so polished you'd never know this is only the second book from Mike Mammay. Butler and the supporting characters are easy to relate to and their thought processes, dialog and actions are completely believable. Whether it's in an office or on the battlefield, you're emotionally invested in the outcome.

And if that isn't enough to recommend Spaceside, there's also the _phenomenal_ narration. Bravo, RC Bray! (standing and clapping) BRAVO! Audible needs to make more stars available to reflect his performances. He effortlessly sweeps you into the story for total immersion yet again.

So if you like smart, fast paced Sci Fi mysteries that could easily double as military espionage, where you don't know where to turn or who to trust, with catastrophic consequences for all involved if you make a wrong move, this is the story for you.

Just as Riviting as the 1st Book

Michael Mammay is a new "always buy" author for me. "Planetside" was really good and the sequel might be better. My only problem is knowing that I will have to wait too long for book #3.

Another brilliant delivery

Michael Mammay and RCB bring you another awesome tale from the front, complete with corporate espionage in this entry.

Cannot wait for book three. 10/10 would read again.

Just fantastic!

I was hooked from the opening minutes and there wasn't a single moment that the book didn't entertain!

I enjoyed the first book in this series, Planetside, so i figured I'd take a chance on the sequel. I'm glad I did! This was even better than the first book. The writing is crisper and the story tighter. The plot moves along and there is never a lag or part that you have to slog through. I really liked that the author didn't spend time trying to rehash the events of the first book to catch you up. You either read the first book and knew what was going on or you didn;t and just had to take this book on it's own merits. There is no reason why you couldn't enjoy this book as a stand alone without knowing the first book, but you wouldn't understand the main character's motivations at a deeper level. The superficial level would be enough though to enjoy the book and as the story unfolds you'd pick up on what happened previously.

As always, RC Bray was incredible. I love his voice and he is one of the best narrators out there for these types of books.

Better than the First Book

Wooaaaahhhh! Hell of an ending. I guess Mammay read everyone’s complaints about the ending in the first book.

If you liked the first book, you will like this one without a doubt.

R.C. Bray is a man among boys; the LeBron James of narrators; the GOAT.

Mammay stepped up his game in this second installment. He picks up a short time after the Colonel has decimated the planet with fusion bombs. Now, he’s a civilian contractor dealing with the emotional and mental consequences of his decision. But his past comes back to haunt him.

I like that Mammay represents soldier life accurately. The thought processes and culture are accurately portrayed. He also does a great job of getting you invested in the story. I’m ready to beat that CEO’s face (you’ll learn about it when you listen). I really hope she gets what’s coming to her in book three.

Worth the credit!
