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.

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.
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.
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... ;)
