あらすじ・解説

A century ago, all but two members of Lance Scipio's unit were executed for bringing dishonor to his regiment.

Now, he is woken into a strange new time, and tasked with whipping into shape the worst squad of misfits in the entire Human Marine Corps.

The price of failure: Death!

AD 2565. Tranquility-4 near the frontier of the White Knight Empire. Guided by mysterious orders, the authorities at the Human Marine Corps base of Beta City thaw Lance Scipio. In 2441, an entire Marine company was executed with the exception of Captain Grimgerde and Sergeant Lance Scipio, the usual punishment for running in the face of the enemy. But these two were preserved...as if they would be required in the future.

Scipio is not expected to escape execution for long, but he has been given a slim chance. For a Marine, a chance can be all that's needed to change the fate of worlds.

The Sleeping Legion is an action-filled sequence of military science fiction novels set in the worlds of the hit series The Human Legion by Tim C. Taylor.

Gimme that Old Time Marine Corp

Interesting Military Sci-Fi. In the same vein as the Forever War. Need a warrior, thaw me out an old breed Marine. Good Start to a new Series

WHAT A LET DOWN!!

How has this book got so many four and five star reviews??? This is an embarrassing piece of garbage. The made up words are stupid sounding. The storyline in itself is highly erratic and confusing! Jeffery Kafer makes it even more ridiculous. His monotone and poor voice effects make this book even worse than just reading it.

Interesting

The story is improving with each book and there is enough mystery/suspense to keep me interested in the next section. The writing style is similar to past science fiction, but can present itself as frustrating/confusing if one is unfamiliar with the style.

Hard to believe this was written by a debut Author

Having listened to the prequel Demons of Kor-Lir, this story simply gained speed in all the right ways.

The author again did not lose me in the weeds of military life. I was pulled into the culture and demands of the characters without having to figure out acronyms and nick names. The action was at a blistering pace. New characters were brought in for the story arc without having to replay sections to understand.

As complex as the story moved (because that is what military operations can be like) I was able to follow all of it. The Author preserved the main character from the prequel. There was no ridiculous change in personality as Scipio’s responsibilities grew. Every non-com ever caught coasting along and suddenly hit with a job bigger than they are, will identify with this novel.

This is the classic “Battle Brings Out the Real You” conundrum that happens in military life, when in active deployment. This is the “coaster” we all knew when serving who stopped coasting, because suddenly great big things depended on HIM making the right decisions. This is a real thing that is hard to capture well. I think the Author knocked it out of the park.

The world grew as the story grew, in the details and nuance that keeps readers reading. Loved the whole story. There was no “pushing through” to the good parts. All of it was good.

Highly recommend. This was the opposite of disappointment. The narrator kept true to the prequel and story intent. This was the right guy for this story.
5 out of 5 stars, all three categories.

Better than 1st, BUT...

Better than 1st of series, but still not great. Maybe OK. Narrator does not do a good job IMO & this makes it that much harder to assess.

There's lots of simplistic concepts, premises & characters. People aren't fully fleshed out. Dialogue, including self thoughts seems stilted.

The stories take place with gaps of 35 years plus in between because of cryostorage & this book includes a "flash freezing" system where people where ever they are (walking, sitting, etc.) within the confines of a room or section of rooms in a bldg are "instantly" frozen & then automatically unfrozen 35 years later as a default setting. Seems a tad unrealistic IMO & hard to swallow.

It's things like that which cause me to say this book is sub par. It's also really hard to follow because every voice is the same. With no delineation between characters I can't tell who's talking or when new chapters start or scenes & people change.

Because of the monotonous droning narrative, it's easy to drift off & really hard to go back & figure out where I stopped paying attention. I really have to concentrate to follow the story. When I can manage that, then the story gets a little interesting.

I'll probably listen to the next book because it's free (incl. w/membership) & Im a glutton for punishment - or maybe optimist - always hoping beyond hope that the story improves & the characters escape their cookie cutters & become more multidimensional.

And that the story will eventually make sense. Right now it seems like a lot of threads are woven only to just poof - disappear & never get moved forward or resolved, so much so, I'm really not even sure what the heck is going on anymore.

Could be I missed some parts & didn't realize it, I suppose.... Or could be the plot line ia a tangled ball of shredded yarn that fell in the corner & is collecting dust?

And, I don't know, maybe it's just a pet peeve or mine &/or naivety, but why do so many authors write about alien races that enslave mankind & use them as servants &/or cannon fodder fighters, devolving their lives to a serfdom not unlike the middle ages in structure & mindset?

Culling the ranks of cadets by 1st demoting them to a sub-servant class that can be abused by alien masters & other humans w/o regards to life or limb? Then further culling of the cadets at graduation by executing the lowest ranking platoons?

Really? That's how other space faring races treat each other? Seems if a race has evolved enough to travel the stars, they would be more enlightened? Just saying.....

So, bottom line, IMO, don't buy this book, certainly don't waste a credit on it, but if it's free, your bored & don't have time to search out a better series, you might just want to check it out & decide for yourself.

(I think I might've read in a few reviews there's people who think this narrator is great. I don't know what planet they're from, but opinions are opinions & everyone's got a right to them!)

Breathless cadence

I tried to get Into the story but I found the narrators cadence annoying and couldn’t get past it. Not every sentence needs to sound dramatic.

Not bad for free

This was free as part of the Audible Plus catalog. I would have been really upset if I had paid a credit for it, since about two hours of the story is a short story after the end of the first book. Since the book was free to me, that was not that upsetting .

The story was not bad, but not great. A number of characters suddenly appeared in the middle of the book and then disappeared after they were needed. The end of the book was rather sudden since I thought there was still two hours to go. If I had expected the main story to be about 5 hours, then it kind of makes a bit more sense. Still the ending felt a bit like one book was cut into two at a “reasonable” breaking point.

The author needs a better editor or maybe some proofreaders. One example of bad writing was something like, “distantly the guns fired in the distance.”

I have low standards, but this was this didn’t even meet those.

surprisingly good

I listened to the prequel first and almost decided not to listen to this one and that would have been a mistake the story on this is good take my advice listen to this one before the prequel and it will be more tolerable.

Brilliantly written military science fiction

One of the best military science fiction series of books I have ever had the pleasure to continue with. This book takes you further into the story and characters grow into your team members as you listen
