Audiobook review of Dawn of Procyon by Mark R. Healey & Travis Baldree

Dawn of Procyon: Distant Suns, Book 1 Written by: Mark R. Healy & Narrated by: Travis Baldree 4*
BLURB:A distant planet. A deadly secret.
Seventeen years after it began, the interstellar war has taken its toll: the inhabitants of Earth are desperate to find a way to defeat the Argoni, a merciless and horrifying alien race.
Light-years away from the fighting, mechanic Landry Stanton lives a peaceful, mundane life on the desolate planet Procyon One, and that's just the way he likes it. But when an unauthorized trip to the other side of the planet leaves him shipwrecked and stranded alongside a hostile alien that wants him dead, Landry discovers a terrifying secret: The Argoni threat is greater than anyone back on Earth imagined.
With his oxygen and water running out, and with no way to warn the United Earth Marines, Landry's lonely fight for survival becomes a battle for humanity itself.

My Review: “I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.” This seems like a great book for fans of The Martian or other such 'seat of the pants survival in hostile enviroments' stories. This one has the added advantage of also having alien enemies to try and defeat whilst trying to survive in that hostile enviroment. I certainly enjoyed listening to it. Travis Baldree has the kind of voice that keeps you chained to your seat and unwilling to move in case you miss something exciting. I only have one major issue with it, but it's a good thing I knew from the title that it was part of a series, because it finished with too much of the story still to go - not exactly a cliffhanger but almost one.
