    Vicious interstellar conflict with an indestructible alien species. Bloody civil war over the last habitable zones of the cosmos. Political unrest, militaristic police forces, dire threats to the solar system.

    Elle in the Great NorthWest says: "MUCH BETTER than the first book"
    "A departure from entertainment."

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who doesn't need much of a story to be entertained.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Space/War Sci/Fi


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Very monotone narration. It put me to sleep. All the characters voices seemed to come from 1930's gangster movies.


    Any additional comments?

    There wasn't anyone to root for in this story. The human race seems to be as bad a blight as the invading aliens.

    We colonized 700 planets. Humankind enjoyed the benefits of expansion room and the end of wars. We even disbanded our military. Then the Krall found us. The Krall have used thousands of years of combat to select the genes of the strongest and fastest warriors. They are a species determined to dominate the entire galaxy, through destruction and annihilation of every opponent.

    Koban is an uninhabited high-gravity planet with impossibly fast savage animals, which employ organic superconducting nerves. This deadly world is where the Krall tested humans for war capability.

    What made the experience of listening to Koban, Book 1 the most enjoyable?

    Its a very good story. Probably better in book form.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Main character. He was very insightful and resourceful (you know your listening to Science Fiction because there are no leaders like this one in, today). He can turnaround a hopeless situation.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Narrator sounded like a third grader reading the story. Very slow and monotone.

    Tag, an exceptional young human living in Central City on the planet Earth, tries to keep his powerful, one-of-a-kind skills undetected by leading an ordinary life and staying under the radar. But one day, on the way home from school, Tag's compassion leads him to make a decision that alters the course of his life - and history.

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

    It's better because of the performance by Liam Owen. I have listened to 100s of Sci-Fi Space adventures and this performance is by far the best!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Annihilation?

    For once Earth and Humans are not behind the eight ball.


    Have you listened to any of Liam Owen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the best.

    Former SEAL Michael Harmon, Team Name ''Ghost'', retired for service injuries, is not enjoying college life. But things are about to change, if not for the better. When he sees a kidnapping, a series of, at the time logical, decisions leave him shot to ribbons and battling a battalion of Syrian commandos with only the help of three naked co-eds who answer to the names ''Bambi,'' ''Thumper'' and ''Cotton Tail.'

    Jenassecret says: "Military-Erotica! I want MORE!!!"

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

    Audio comes to life because of the great performance by Jeremy Arthur. He brings Ringo's characters to life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ghost?

    The hero's sexual proclivities.


    What about Jeremy Arthur’s performance did you like?

    He has a great range of voices for the characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The way the hero deals with the bad guys. You hope we have those type of people doing ot the bad guys what Ringo has his character doing.


    Any additional comments?

    A very fun and entertaining series. I couldn't stop listening until I finished the whole series. It went by to fast!
