I'm an adventure/travel story buff. I loved Into Thin Air, Lost City of Z, Shadow Divers and Endurance. This one ranks right up there with those amazing true stories. I'm amazed at the courage it takes to explore the deepest caves in the world and the dibilitating panic attack they call, "The Rapture" that can hit anyone at anytime whilst inside the deep recesses of the Earth!! I highly recommend this adventure and the narrator does an excellent job. A credit well spent!!!
The concept as a whole is an A+. One of Jupiter's moons decides it's time to take off! The nearest and most likely candidate to intercept the moon/spaceship is not the Space Marines or the Starship Enterprise, it's "Rock Hopper" a space mining ship. What's not to love!!
Thus begins a space opera unlike any other, the adventure is mind boggling and will leave you, in the end, with many more questions then when you started. This is not necessairly a bad thing but it does take 20 hours to get to that point.
I enjoyed this story and would consider it a worthwhile book credit for those who like "First Contact" type storylines.
I also enjoyed Pandora's Star, Judas Unchained and House of Suns.
Great story, fabulous narration! I really like the way this story goes from Zombies to tactical team dynamics to put them all together for a fast paced action filled thriller. I really am hard to please and really rely on these reviews. So with that, trust me you wont regret this use of a credit.
Amazing!!! I have read every (ok almost) true adventure book out there. This one beats them all hands down!! I cannot believe what these men had to go through and thank God the journals were located to allow this book to be written. I can't tell you how many times I had to bundle up and keep the cold at bay as the story unfolds..... Download it, buy it, use a credit on it you will not be disappointed!!
Make sure you start with Book 1 "Day by Day Armagedon" then sit back and enjoy Beyond Exile. I love J.L. Bourne's writing style and the Narrator Jay Snyder, has the perfect voice for this part. I enjoy a good Zombie story and or movie, some more then others, and this is rated right up there with my #1 picks. Please keep the stories coming Mr. Bourne !!
