    Description

    Stack bodies, get paid, get to the ship.

    If you can survive Reaper Platoon in the Strange, then Ghost or Dog Platoons will get you for their own. Best to steer clear of the freaks in Voodoo, kid.” 

    Surrounded and outgunned, a group of private military contractors known as “Strange Company” find themselves on a remote planet at the edge of known space, and on the losing end of a bad contract. Orbital D-beam strikes, dropships bristling with auto-guns, missiles, and troops - even Monarch space marines in state-of-the-art advanced battle rattle - will try to prevent the company from reaching the exfil LZ and getting off-world. 

    For Strange, that means it’s time to hang tough and get it on with as much hyper-kinetic violence as they can muster to get clear of the whole mess. And what the Strange can’t get done by violent assault and crazy firefights, they’ll get done by the freaks of Voodoo Platoon - operators who have been changed by the Dark Labs into powerful and unnervingly unnatural asymmetrical weapons. 

    This is the Strange Company. Because in the Strange, it’s always really Strange. Join them - and get ready for full auto combat at the furthest limits of human exploration.

    Another excellent (audio)book from Nick Cole!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The closest comparison I can make is to the Black Company books, but even making that comparison is selling this wonderfully strange story short. If you've read other Nick Cole books, you know he has a good aptitude for writing some oddities and unusual settings, and there's definitely some recognizable tropes in this book (if also ramped up a good bit!).

    Whereas his other excellent Sci-Fi novels have reasonably cut-and-dry Good Guys and Bad Guys (except for when they're not, haha), this story is focused on mercenaries. Mercenaries who straight up say that they're not always shooting the Bad Guys, because sometimes they're the ones that hold their contract.

    Look, I know that might sound kinda overused nowindays, but there's a difference between Jayne Cobb saying something like that vs these guys; he's to friendly, outgoing, and altruistic for these guys....and he probably doesn't have sufficient weapons to fit in with them, anyway!

    Unforgettable...

    You probably know Nick Cole from his excellent collaboration with Jason Anspach in Galaxy's Edge. This is the first military science fiction book I've read written only by Nick and WOW am I glad I did!

    This is an amazing combination of classic pulp sci-fi (think Weird Tales) with modern military science fiction. I can't think of anything I've read like it before but I'm eager for more!

    A great story!

    This book was so good, had to up the play back speed to 1.2x because it seemed like the audio was paced really slow but at the up speed it was perfect pace for my ear, have to say the last 3-4 hrs of the book were the best vintage Nick Cole well paced action and depth of story can’t wait for next entry into this world!

    Tangents, and descriptions

    This story would be 2 hours, if it wasn't for the 20 to 30 min tangents and way to long descriptionsm its really well written and the characters are very well fleshed out. But all the tangents really slows down the pacing

    What's going on?

    I was hoping for a grim and gritty war story. I got grim and gritty descriptions. This book is more description than story. The author does an amazing job of describing things, but he does it at the detriment of progressing the story. I listened for 2 hours before I had to give it up. In that 2 hours, very little happened, but there was some amazing descriptions of people, and the main characters thoughts on random things.

    Awesome!

    it was an absolutely amazing adventure, start to finish. The kind of book you wish went on and on, and you can't wait for a sequel.

    This book is amazing if a bit...Strange...

    First and Foremost, I adore this book. It's great. It made me tear up a bit, and is overall a lot of fun. But it's...well...Strange. Here is my summary of the plot: There is a group of Mercenaries called Strange Company. Shenanigans ensue. This book is one part a commentary of the horrors of war, one part allegory for cancel culture and everything else going on in the world today, one part secondhand drug trip, and one part references to other science fiction stories (Though thankfully a hint more discreet than something like Ready Player One) The whole book is a blast and I enjoyed it.

    Wordy!

    If you like all the wordy details you don’t care about in all the books he has co authored then this book isn’t for you. The Mc is just talking to hear him self talk. Even the action is buried under mountains or text and prose that you can’t care about simply because their is no depth to any of it. The narrator is pretty good but god is this dry

    Awesome, Relatable Scifi

    Well built characters and plot. stick through the first few chapters where the character is busy finding his place in the story and it'll be good.
