Dont read the reviews... lots of salty people about the success of the series.
The basics of the plot is aliens show up, and realistically the earth gets fucked in like 30 minutes. our protagonist along with 100,000 humans get shipped offworld to be an ground-pounding force, but really they get used more like... peace keepers. series of events happen, and plucky humans become space pirates. can't say what the events are without spoiling it, but it is a bit of a slow roll and then BAM it goes really well.
I recommend the audiobooks, R.C. Bray is a phenomenal narrator with a good range in voice acting and really brings things to life. The audiobooks by themselves are expensive, so I suggest getting audible subscription but there is a loophole, if you buy the kindle book you can get the audiobook for very little.
in that link there should be an option labeled:
(Add Audible narration to your purchase for just $7.49) With the kindle price being like $2.99
If magic is more your cup of tea, I also have a great series on that, its about a guy transported to another world but he is no hero, instead of a dungeon lord.
If space scifi realism is your cup of tea I got another series too.
Sorry, i 2asnt too ckear. it's a book set in the present day describing first contact and onward exploration of space... Kinda. I dont want to give too much away
And I low-key called you an "utter twat" followed by an "asshat", only to have you think me reasonable. 😘
All about dat presentation.
I haven't actually read much of them, I'll definitely check it out.
Also something for you to kill time on- Expeditionary Force series, The Gam3 series, The Undying Mercenary series, and the Magic 2.0 series. All are science-fiction series that are fairly original, and with decreasing degrees (ExForce most prominent, Magic 2.0 hardly existent) of overarching series plots.
Seriously- if you haven't read Expeditionary Force, you really, really need to. Plus, it's like 10 books at this point and will tie you up for a while.
1) If your unit found out then, yes you would be called that, that is how the military works :)
2) It's random and funny and I really like the series, [link].
3) If you like Sci Fi with humor and an asshole AI beer can. Pm an email address an I will send you the first book on Kindle.
(5 book series)
This book is more about hostile take over/ alien invasions more than being stranded on a planet. But it has space battles and a talking beer can..
I just finished Columbus Day and as far as cheap sci-fi goes it's pretty damn good. Much more grounded that most sci-fi I've read recently. And I just started the sequel today.
The Expeditionary Force series has all the books available to read for free for Amazon Kindle Unlimited subscribers, and the first audiobook for the Columbus Day (book1) is free too. So you can read and listen to the first book for free to decide if you want to continue the series. Books 2-5 are available on Audible for $7.95, cheaper than credits, so don't use a credit to buy them.
Kindle Unlimited is $9.99/mos. I think it's worth subscribing for at least 6 months because I could easily find 10 books and audiobooks per month that I was able to enjoy. After clearing off all the books I was interested in reading/listening too, the subscription is probably of less value and not worth it for most people.
The Bobiverse Series is another excellent science fiction series on Kindle Unlimited.
Columbus Day (Expeditionary Force Book 1)
This is a must it now spans 8 books including a couple of novellas as side stories but still important to the over all arc, the audible series breastfed by RC Bray is amazing I have listeners to them all over the last couple of years can’t recommend highly enough.
Amazon kindle link
Here's the Amazon link to book 1. I also recommend the Audiobook because of Bray's narration, but reading is good too.
While not strictly what you requested, Expeditionary Force is a bit of a different spin on the request. I enjoyed the first book and several others into the franchise on audiobook.
