Legend: Four Horsemen Tales, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
2018 Dragon Award Finalist for Best Military Sci-Fi Novel
In the era of the original Four Horsemen, there comes a Legend.
At a time when Humans were just starting to venture forth into the Galactic Union as mercenaries, Martin Quincy survived long enough to do something no one else had - he retired.
There was only one problem: He got bored.
After battling aliens for many years - killing aliens and getting paid - retirement didn’t suit him, and he decided to strap on the combat armor and go back to the stars. Along with his old friend Kal, Martin joined Cartwright’s Cavaliers, humanity’s best merc company. Life was exciting!
But he got bored. Again.
What does a "legend" do when even the merc life gets boring? He starts his own company! Can Martin form a merc company out of non-merc races and stand up for the downtrodden of the galaxy, or has his long string of good luck finally run out? One thing is for sure - with Torvasi and Andori troopers, and a Sirra’Kan princess as his partner, he won’t get bored again!
Includes Shattered Crucible, a bonus novella in The Four Horsemen series.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Good way to while away a couple of hours. I think I have the whole series so far, and am hanging out for more.
If you want "serious" "message" hugo bait sci-fi, you may want to look elsewhere. If however massive destruction, alien mercenaries, and cool space battles, then come right in....

Martin Quincy kills a man on Earth, and thanks to a kindly judge, gets to serve his time in a Mercenary unit instead of jail. He survives the 10 years, earning a nickname of "Legend" for his fighting exploits.
The rest of the book is more legendary exploits, including defeating a company of Besquith, which had never been done before.
It was nice to read a book that showed the human Mercs as still learning their trade, and that to the aliens of the Galactic Union, they are oddities that are not understood, and seen as curiosities. We also get to meet a large number of aliens that haven't been heard of before, along with some we have, but in different ways.
I wonder if that human restaurant is still on Karma in the present where humans are under attack by Peepo, and the Guild.
