Description

Because the universe can’t save itself.

With echoes of wonder and cries for help, swarms of claws and clans under siege, the vastness calls out for a hero.

Instead, Master Sergeant Riot and her ride-or-die crew - fueled by extreme amounts of caffeine, questionable morals, and a dose of epinephrine - stand against a pee-your-pants-a-little baddie, threatening the cosmos.

If The Ember War and Deadpool had a despicable yet lovable baby, War Wolves would be it.

So what are you waiting for? Get your audiobook, like now. Go.

Warning: May cause you to stay up past your bedtime, uncontrollable fits of laughter, and an overall good time.

Might be ok for teenagers.

Boring. Too much superhero style for my taste. Miss some humor in the story. Inconsistencies inn the story.

It's a video game.

The characters are one-dimensional, and there's just barely enough plot to get them from one firefight to the next. I gave it over 4 hours to get better. It didn't.

War with a sense of humor

Fun characters, plenty of action. A bit more of the fantasy then my usual but it worked for this. Even a love story...hopefully there will be a queen riot book to follow.

These aren't your typical space Marines.

Most amazing audiobook to date. These two authors really work very well together to bring you the best science fantasy story that I have ever heard. The narrator is also very expressive and obviously enjoys her job.
The story itself is extremely riveting. Who wouldn't want to hear a story about space dragons combating alien elves? One of the best things about this story is that the authors paint the scenes in only the broadest possible strokes. This allows your imagination to immerse you in the story without getting hung up on the minutiae that slows you down. Fast paced space battles and a brisk storyline doesn't prevent fleshing out characters fully though.
I've never met a female heroine that I've liked as much as Master Sergeant Riot. There aren't enough female heroines in the space fantasy genre or pretty much any fictional genre but if they could all be so awesome and compelling as this one the literature world would be better.
The most amazing thing about the story though is that each of the main characters no matter how crazy or badass overcome the obstacles in a manner that the reader can both relate to and simultaneously look up to. These are characters that I hope our children can grow up to become. They stand up to Intergalactic bullies. Create friends with the most unlikely of people. Ignoring social and economic differences to come together for the common good of the universe.

Space Dragons???

Spoiler Alert! This seems like an exciting book. Marines fighting for the survival of the human race, when all of a sudden Magical fire breathing space dragons and alien wizards are thrown in the loop. I’ve heard of jumping the shark but Wow!

Meh

First off this is the first book that I just couldn't bring myself to finish. I figure I had spent the credit might as well see it through. The story was hollow and the plot simplistic . The characters are one dimensional and that was a stretch. It was remarkable it could be packed with action but boring at the same time. The only thing that was done well were the voice performances. Sometimes over done but it was vibrant and expressive a very nice departure from typical monotone narrations.

Unfunny. Anachronistic pap. Pith without pithiness.

The story is great if you want something mindless in one ear with dead metal in the other while you are doing something important like fighting a low-level bot in your video game. Justin and Jonathan tried. I’m sure.

The reader tried. Her diction and pronunciation are fine. The work doesn’t do her credit as she strives to deliver the numerous instances of “Boom” and “Blam” with originality. She turns the warrior prince of the TriLords into a femme fatale with a sultry voice. Definitely not menacing or manly.

I bought the book because of the deceptive description in the Publisher’s Summary “Warning: May cause you to stay up past your bedtime, uncontrollable fits of laughter, and overall good time.” Wrong on all counts. It should have been promoted as a cure for insomnia. I bought the book thinking it might be funny. Funny like in breaking-my-ribs sci-Fi that you find in the beer-can AI of “Expeditionary Force” or the multiplying AIs in “We Are Bob.”

Here we are in a quasi post apocalyptic scenario in the future. Potential without the punch and delivery. We have Marines asking the AI to play 80s music. The Marines are able to squeeze in the request in one of the short interludes when the AI isn’t asking for a body. These requests are something she does frequently enough to annoy. Then “poof” a couple Marines miraculously make an AI compatible body to appear with little explanation as to how.

Hey! If you’re going to be anachronistic why not John Philip Souza, a real Marine.

Maybe that’s funny to other readers. Or maybe the other readers thought it was funny that a TriLord’s cheer of “Aroo” is a palindrome of the Marine cheer “Oora.”

I wearily listened to the bitter end listening to worn cliche after tired out cliche hoping to get the punchline after a long drawn out joke. No such luck.

It was informative to hear the author explain how little time and research went into writing the book. Honest at least and helpful in understanding the mind-numbing stream of consciousness writing.

So, future reader, prepare yourself to listen to “Boom” and “Blam” a lot. You’ll hear about dragons flapping their wings in the void of space. You’ll hear much of the husky-voice heir to a world smitten with our hard-core Marine heroine, Riot. BTW, the heir is such an eligible bachelor catch that it is surprises us to find that Riot has no competition from local females. The local girls must have been in on the joke.

Fun story, great characters.

Fun story. Great characters, but the voice acting was sort of all over the place. At times really good and other it was just odd and odd. I think is worth getting and I am really looking forward to seeing what come next.

Seriously?

I can suspend my belief for a lot of things. But there were so many issues with this book that threw me out of the experience. For one... as a soldier, I have never seen or heard of a marine who ever called themselves soldier more after being indoctrinated into the cult of jarheads. Mainly because those crayon eating window lickers are just glorified navy infantry and don't have a their own branch. That brings up another point... who would even think it is a good idea to hand over alien tech to a bunch of regular marines... maybe some raiders or whatever they are call this week... but just some joe snuffy face in the mud self propelled sandbag? Please... I barely trusted my own tards with their weapons in the good ole sandbox bwahahaha. Now I might be bias on this tid bit... but why doesn't anyone give a bunch of soldier some high tech gear and let them loose on the galaxy? Essayons!

Next... did either of these authors do any research? Ignoring tactics... Warrant Officers are not real officers... neither is it difficult to become a warrant. Hell, being enlisted is the only way you can become one. In my experience, the only warrant I've seen that actually did work were pilots and special forces. Which by the way you may not be demoted from warrant to cpl. And marines do not have medics, they have corpsmen, you know sailors that are dumb enough to want to play in the dirt?

So anyways... hey the narrator was the bomb though. Loved her.
