    In his time at Area 51, Mike Turcotte has learned one thing: We are not alone. As part of an elite Special Forces team, the former Green Beret has encountered things that are well beyond human understanding. Now, two ancient rivals from another world are vying to dominate Earth, and Mike and his team must choose which army to side with. The key to averting the crisis lies in a single weapon: Excalibur. The mythical, legendary sword of King Arthur is real and can unlock a galactic power beyond what anyone - human or alien - has ever seen. And Mike must keep it from falling into the wrong hands.

    What disappointed you about Excalibur?

    Same to say as his Area 51 Grail... yuk


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not area 51 - 4, 5, 6, etc...


    Would you be willing to try another one of Eric G. Dove’s performances?

    If priced cheap with whisper sync.
    Wouild not waste a credit.
    Only the $2.99 kindle and $3.99 made Area 51 books 1, 2, 3 worth trying. Books 4, 5 not even worth the $7


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Couldn't keep going after repeat of story line of book 1, 2, 3, 4


    Any additional comments?

    See area 51 grail.

    world recovering from a devastating plague. A brutal enemy threatening invasion. A young man seeking to escape the shadow of his father. A ship manned by a crew of fresh academy graduates. A top-secret experimental propulsion system. A questionable alliance with a mysterious green-eyed woman. What destiny has in store for the crew of the UES Aurora is far greater than any of them could ever imagine. And this is only the beginning....

    Would you try another book from Ryk Brown and/or Jeffrey Kafer?

    Yes, I am especially disappointed in these book companies or worse authors find it necessary to split one book into two and charge you as if it were four.
    Narrator is good.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Move it along a little quicker.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Decent.


    Could you see Aurora: CV-01 being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a decent storyline and what. However wher is the prequel beginning of the story.
    What caused the world collapse, when did the plague hit. Wheren and where did theJund come from?
    How did the data disks get stored and found. Any book shorter than 6 hours is a $7 book.

    Special Forces officer Mike Turcotte has paid his dues in battle and in blood. Now assigned to Area 51, he fights the toughest enemy of his career: the alien race who arrived on Earth millennia ago and have returned to claim the planet. Mike has dodged bullets and faced weapons of mass destruction to give humanity another day of reprieve. But when his lover, scientist Lisa Duncan, falls into evil hands, Mike must decide which prize means the most to him - the woman he loves or the legendary Grail.

    Richard K. Morgan has received widespread praise for his astounding 25th-century novels featuring Takeshi Kovacs, and has established a growing legion of fans. Mixing classic noir sensibilities with a searing futuristic vision of an age when death is nearly meaningless, Morgan returns to his saga of betrayal, mystery, and revenge, as Takeshi Kovacs, in one fatal moment, joins forces with a mysterious woman who may have the power to shatter Harlan's World forever.

    Everything starts somewhere. For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997. A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby military base. But that soldier has powerful friends in Washington. Reacher is ordered undercover - to find out everything he can, to control the local police, and then to vanish. Reacher is a good soldier. But when he gets to Carter Crossing, he finds layers no one saw coming, and the investigation spins out of control. Local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux has a thirst for justice - and an appetite for secrets.

    Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there. All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride.

    Tyler Locke's routine commute on a Washington State ferry is interrupted by a chilling anonymous call claiming that his father has been kidnapped and that a truck bomb is set to detonate on board in twenty minutes. When Tyler, a former army combat engineer, reaches the bomb on the boat's car deck, he's stunned to find classical languages expert Stacy Benedict waiting for him. She's received the same threat and her sister has also been taken.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Vault to be better than the print version?

    I feel that the audio versions immerse the reader into the story line more so that your imagination can visualize what is happening.
    I feel Boyd Morrison writes an excellent story and give you a good understanding of not only what is going on around the characters but of the strengths and weaknesses of the characters,


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, I only stopped long enough to eat and sleep than ontinue on.
    I personally feel Tuler Locke is a better character than Jack Reacher whom I also reader I finish all three of Boyds audio books,


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I would say similar to the description of the title.
    But please use a stronger character than Tom Cruz (biger and wider) whom I think is one of the greastest,


    Any additional comments?

    I almost cried at the end of the book from letdown and the end of the story wanting more,
    As I did when i finished the ARK, I went right into this one, and have already downloaded the ROSWELL CONSPIRACY,
    thanks Mr Morrison.

    FYI I am a 56 year old male, who served as an E2 in the USAF during the viet nam era stateside.
    As a person with an extensive mechanical background, many certificates and an AS degree, I volunteered as a EMT and Firefuighter (ll) before I became a PARAMEDIC.
    With the premed education to go on to nursing school (was accepted for 2003) I permanently injured myself on an ambulance doing work as a paid PARAMEDIC.

    Only needing a few classes to complete my BS degree at CCSU, in CT., I am now a homeboby with a lot of pain and free time. the downside is I can no longer work or lift.
    No Sympathy required, just keep those great books coming.

    A century from now, thanks to a technology allowing instantaneous travel across light-years, humanity has solved its energy shortages, cleaned up the environment, and created far-flung colony worlds. The keys to this empire belong to the powerful North family - composed of successive generations of clones. Yet these clones are not identical. For one thing, genetic errors have crept in with each generation. For another, the original three clone "brothers" have gone their separate ways, and the branches of the family are now friendly rivals more than allies. Or maybe not so friendly....

    Probally never ever again
