Marine: Terran Scout Fleet, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Aliens exist...and, as it turns out, most of them aren’t that friendly. Jacob Brown wasn’t even born yet the first time they attacked Earth. He was only 14 the second time it happened.
When Earth finally came together and fielded its first spaceborne military, Jacob didn’t hesitate to volunteer. Serving aboard a mighty starship, he’d be able to defend his planet - and his family - when, inevitably, they came again.
Just as he’s about to graduate training, however, Jacob is approached by an officer from Naval Special Operation Command and given a choice: volunteer for a risky mission to a dangerous, lawless world or give up his dream of serving in the military and go home. He has no idea why he’s being singled out in such an unusual manner, but now, it's either agree to their demands or give up his dream of being on a starship.
Soon, getting his career back on the right track will be the least of his concerns when it seems like everyone - and everything - he meets is trying to kill him. When he stumbles upon a secret most people on Earth are blissfully unaware of, he realizes it's not just the aliens he needs to be worried about.

Always on lookout for authors whose works are appealing to me I'd ran across Omega Force and Joshua right off advanced to the top of my Sciefi writers list and this latest book definitely cements him there.
Joshua's reference to McCoy in w.e.b. Griffin's "Corps" sure helped my understanding of the parallel in writing style, and I'm looking forward to a continuation of both series by Joshua, which will no doubt get top rating by me for every individual book.
In fact, the 'Omega Force' series should be read 1st to make sense of many of the references mentioned in this book. The series is aimed at younger people, but I enjoyed it at my 70 years of age. It is worth adding to your reading library during this stay at home pandemic period if you are into Science Fiction Space adventures.
I originally started listening to the audio format of the Omega Force series several years ago while spending hours and days driving across the USA for my job. These books really made the miles disappear.
These books have helped me pass many enjoyable hours during this pandemic. In fact I have also been rereading previous volumes of the series from years ago while spending time at home.
A worthwhile addition to your library.
This book definitely opens up the rest of the OF universe in that you get to see it from another POV other than Jason, his team and Mok.
I loved getting to know Webb more and how the rest of Earth shook out after previous events where Jason got Earth hooked up in the greater galactic events.
If you’re a fan of the OG OF then you’ll be happy with this new series. I can’t wait to jump into Boneshaker and see where Team Obsidian goes from here!!!!
Jacob Brown has been surrounded by secrets, lies, and betrayals, since he was a child. Such has been his non-relationship with his father, and in fact with the governments of Earth. He hates his father for good reason, he thinks. But everything is not necessarily as it seems. That is an ongoing theme that cannot be solved in one book.
He's a rookie that much to his dismay goes from the classroom to being a 2nd Lieutenant in the marines. He's whisked away on a supposed simple mission before he receives all of his training. Then all hell breaks loose.
Here's the thing... Being a Marine is NOT his chosen career path. To say things just got complicated and dangerous is an understatement.
Don't miss this book. You can't go wrong with Joshua Dalzelle.
Definitely give this a read if you enjoy a good sci-fi action story.
I’ll probably have to get all the Omega books now... ;)
I like the overall story and the primary characters are interesting. Dalzelle tells a good tale and keeps his characters largely realistic. This particular edition was rife with editing misses. Misused and double words abound. Good but not great. I think I'll finally dive into "Omega Force" before I tackle the next book. I will definitely be reading both.

(other recommendations are C Gockel and Marko Kloos and of course the excellent Cixin Liu)
The books by this author are written in a way that the science fiction seems realistic and they so easy to read to a point where you lose track of time reading them.
