    Long ago, a human astrophysicist, Inigo, began dreaming scenes from the life of a remarkable human being named Edeard, who lived within the Void, a self-contained microuniverse at the heart of the galaxy. There, under the beneficent gaze of mysterious godlike entities, humans possessed uncanny psychic abilities, and Edeard's were the strongest of all. Equally strong was his determination to bring justice and freedom to a world terrorized by criminal violence and corruption.

    Ingwe says: "Make Sure you have read the Dreaming Void"

    Overall

    Hamilton's ability to bring this ultra futuristic universe to life is unparalleled to any other author I have ever read. Hard sci-fi at its best.

    When Han and Leia Solo arrive at Lando Calrissian’s Outer Rim mining operation to help him thwart a hostile takeover, their aim is just to even up the odds and lay down the law. Then monstrous aliens arrive with a message, and mere threats escalate into violent sabotage with mass fatalities. When the dust settles, what began as corporate warfare becomes a battle with much higher stakes - and far deadlier consequences. Now Han, Leia, and Luke team up once again in a quest to defeat a dangerous adversary bent on galaxy-wide domination.

    What does Marc Thompson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Marc Thompson has the ability to bring this average book into something I enjoy. His skills at bringing characters from a written media into an audio environment is simply amazing. All the star wars characters in my head have his stellar performance bringing them to life.

    On the planet Tython, the ancient Je’daii order was founded. And at the feet of its wise Masters, Lanoree Brock learned the mysteries and methods of the Force - and found her calling as one of its most powerful disciples. But as strongly as the Force flowed within Lanoree and her parents, it remained absent in her brother, who grew to despise and shun the Je’daii, and whose training in its ancient ways ended in tragedy. Now, from her solitary life as a Ranger keeping order across the galaxy, Lanoree has been summoned by the Je’daii Council on a matter of utmost urgency.

    Pasqual says: "Good but not great."
    "Not read by Marc Thompson, still very good"

    What about January LaVoy’s performance did you like?

    I was originally dubious about January LaVoy narrating this over Marc Thompson (who I love), but she really pulls you into the book as much as Marc does for me. Good choice!

    Carl Cravens says: "Great story, enjoyable British humour."
    "Good comedy"
    Overall

    The Light Fantastic is a great book, but my opinion is that most of the discworld books are "hit or miss". This one is a "Hit". Good comedy, storyline, and characters.

    After successfully freeing Alliance POWs, "Black Jack" Geary discovers that the Syndics plan to ambush the fleet with their powerful reserve flotilla in an attempt to annihilate it once and for all. And as Geary has the fleet jump from one star system to the next, hoping to avoid the inevitable confrontation, saboteurs contribute to the chaos.

    Chance says: "Listen to the complete series"
    "Not a space warfare guy"
    Overall

    I am not into all that military war stuff, but I cannot wait for the next one. This series continues its hold on me after every book.
