This Week's Audiobook Recommendation

by Melinda Rose

The Light Brigade by Kameron Hurley, Narrated by Cara Gee, (who you may know as the OPA’s Captain Drummer on "The Expanse".  No, she doesn't use her Belter accent here, but the performance is equally strong.)

Dietz volunteers for the military after her home is destroyed by rebels from Mars, but as she progresses through training and then into fighting, she discovers things aren't what they seem. She ends jumping around through time and trying to figure out what's going on. The non-linear timeline is confusing, but you're experiencing it in the same way Dietz does. This is, at heart, a very human military drama, and one that has stayed with me even weeks after listening.
