Earth itself is a backwater. The bulk of humanity's resources are in the hands of the Colonial Defense Force. Everybody knows that when you reach retirement age, you can join the CDF. They don't want young people; they want people who carry the knowledge and skills of decades of living. You'll be taken off Earth and never allowed to return. You'll serve two years at the front. And if you survive, you'll be given a generous homestead stake of your own, on one of our hard-won colony planets.
John Perry is taking that deal. He has only the vaguest idea of what to expect. Because the actual fight, light-years from home, is far, far harder than he can imagine. And what he will become is far stranger.

What a fantastic book
This book has immediately gripped me, it is a fabulos listen. As a big fan of RA Heinlein it is a little like coming home, a great writer, a gripping story that will make you want to buy all the other books as well.
The narrator is very good too, all in all, a tremendously enjoyable experience, buy this, you will not regret i.

Starship Troopers meets Avatar
Great world build-up with a very likeable main character that made me excited for the rest of the series. It reminded me mainly of Starship Troopers with a flavor of James Cameron's Avatar. The narrator makes a good job and has a fitting voice even for the female characters.
