    Athena Hera Sinistra never wanted to go to space. Never wanted see the eerie glow of the Powerpods. Never wanted to visit Circum Terra. Never had any interest in finding out the truth about the DarkShips. You always get what you dont ask for. Which must have been why she woke up in the dark of shipnight, within the greater night of space in her father's space cruiser, knowing that there was a stranger in her room.

    Richard says: "Fun original sci-fi"
    "Painfully boring and obvious"
    Overall

    I barely finished this book despite some nice references to Henlein's work. I guess author wanted to re-make "Friday" but that did not go all too well. Nice ambiance, first half of the book goes OK, second half is very bland. All in all, I did not think it was time well spent.

    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    Overall

    I guess this is targeted at teens? I wish Audible made it clear.

    Starts well, becomes primitive fast, and deteriorates to the point there it won't even pass as a comic.

    Captain Ann Campbell is a West Point graduate, the daughter of legendary General "Fighting Joe" Campbell. She is the pride of Fort Hadley until, one morning, her body is found, naked and bound, on the firing range.

    karen says: "One of DeMille's best, an American classic"
    "now with an ad for the movie?"
    Overall

    Fine book, not DeMille's best, not the worst.
    BUT
    Why, oh why it has to be precedeed by 23 minutes of DeMille's advertisement for the movie?
    Sorry, but now my most vivid recollection from listening to the book is the annoyance of having to listen through 20+ minutes of the shameless self-promotion.

    PLEASE REMOVE THAT. And fix the 3rd download part - you have 5 hours long Audible chapter that is a duplicate of the following chanpters.

    He is a good man, a brilliant corporate executive, an honest, handsome family man admired by men and desired by women. But a lifetime ago Ben Tyson was a lieutenant in Vietnam.There the men under his command committed a murderous atrocity -- and together swore never to tell the world what they had done. Now the press, army justice, and the events he tried to forget have caught up with Ben Tyson.

    Diana says: "Nelson does it again"
    "starts slow but turns good"
    Overall

    The book goes very slow (even comparing to The Gold Coast) but the last part of it kept me listening till 4am.

    Great book, great reading. Thank you.
