No Spoilers from me I will just say book 1 ( Steel World) and this book 2 (Steel World) are my most memorable moments, the stories are A+.
McGil,but let me say Mark Boyett is a exellent narrator he brings nothing but greatness to all of B.V Larsons audio books. I have listened to nine Star Force books and now two Undying Mercenaries all 11 narrated by Boyett and I can honestly say I never get tired of him he is one of the very good ones.
They just put me in a good mood and I don't watch the clock while listening like I do with many other books.
This is my own personal opinion and we are all maybe looking for something a little different, maybe not but either way for me B.V Larson is the absolute best Military SiFi writer right now and has been since Star Force, heck IMO he is the best SiFi writer period. His style is not hard SiFi it is just his story laid right out in front of you easy to follow yet very full of SiFi substance. If you can't already tell I highly suggest you listen to this series and if you have not already listened to his Star Force series do that as well.
The adventure and the narration.
All of them he completely nails it fantastic I wish he narrated every single audio book I listen to.
I had a very tough time putting it down, there is no dull moments where I said to myself well I can stop here.
This is the start of what is going to be a very successful series so get in now, I'm not a big dog person so don't think to yourself you must be to really enjoy this book! As I said above Scott Aiello narrates every character perfectly. I really enjoy novels by James Rollins and here with this book he sets the bar very high. Awesome!
Very high but do not read all the amazon description it really spoils half the book with major spoilers. I have never seen anything like it
Only read the first couple sentences in the book description, you have been warned don't ruin it I promise. After you read the book go back and read the description you will see what I mean.
Top 15 maybe even better
Hard to say I hate spoilers so I will just say the castles.
Grover Gardner is fantastic reading this book I wish this was not his one and only reading in this series, if your reading this review to get opinions on narration for this audio book don't hesitate it is wonderful nothing is forced and the female voices are great.
fun, addicting, flawless
Marvin - You just really never know what he is up to or what he is going to do.
Mark Boyett does a fine job narrating, his voice is smooth and does not distract the listener.
This is a book/series that is very hard to put down, I finished it in two sittings.
This is book 6 and is not one you can read without reading the previous novels starting with book 1 Swarm. Science Fiction is not normally something I would get heavily involved in but this series has captivated since book one, hopefully book 7 Annihilation is released on Audible soon. If you are here reading these reviews then that means you are somewhat intrigued so do yourself a favor and start reading the series you won't be disappointed.
Very detailed everything from the bigger picture to the soldiers day to day lives. He also did a great job leaving politics out and letting you the reader decide for themselves but moreover this is a book about our troops and their sacrifice along with their families.
All of the men mentioned in this book and also those who may not have been mentioned.
I've never listened to this narrator but he did a excellent job, he keeps the same voice throughout not changing for different characters but I found this to be a good thing not only because nothing sounded silly but it also does not put a "fake" voice to those that sacrificed, not unless the narrator knew exactly what these men and women's voices sounded like should he attempt their voice, and he does not.
I wanted to but couldn't so I did it in two.
If you like books like Lone Survivor, American Sniper etc. then you will most likely enjoy this book, it reminded me more of the Vietnam book Matterhorn which was excellent.
Sean Mangan was absolutely fantastic, a new favorite reader of mine. Perfect on the narration in my opinion.
I love the idea(s) behind the book but I just could not connect with the story. I don't really know how to put it but I did not feel as though as was there in the cave with the characters, some of my favorite books make me feel as though I'm there myself. Details of creatures and the main characters was great but I'm not sure I felt the same way about the world the story is set in, I believe this is the area I felt distant from.
The author references the Spyderco Manix knife as one of the only folding knives that can be opened one handed yet this is just ridiculous as most
These are my types of novels and I highly enjoyed it but I think it kind of dragged out towards the end but because the history and context of the book I will still give it 4 stars and not 3.
If this type of book fits your description then do not hesitate to buy it, it's classic Preston/Child at there very best IMO. I found the book to be very descriptive and easy to picture the scenes clear in my mind, and what awesome scenes they are. I could read/listen to books like this every night.
Very entertaining, The Breach is basically part one of two with Ghost Country being part 2 and even then there is obvious room for another. It took me all of two nights to get through The Breach and Ghost Country, yes it's one of those. You must know what happens next while guessing searching for answers.
