    It certainly suffers the middle book syndrome. But its still a good listen. If you like the characters and style its just fine. There are a few new wrinkles added and a minor mystery for now which could grow. This isn't meant to be a negative review and I don't want it to sound like it. This book sets the stage for whole lot more which could be interesting if played out right.

    Agent Franks of the U.S. Monster Control Bureau is a man of many parts - parts from other people, that is. Franks is nearly seven feet tall and all muscle. He's nearly indestructible. Plus he’s animated by a powerful alchemical substance and inhabited by a super-intelligent spirit more ancient than humanity itself. Good thing he’s on our side. More or less.

    What did you love best about Monster Hunter Nemesis?

    We finally get to know exactly what Agent Franks is and its more than you expect.


    What other book might you compare Monster Hunter Nemesis to and why?

    Pretty much any of the other Monster Hunter books, which are all very good.


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

    He just nails Franks. Gruff bullish and doesn't much care about you unless he gets to hit you, preferably many times


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was very enjoyable, laughing once in a while but crying no not really but Agent Franks does grow more as a character. The loss of his son, and mentor have an effect on him. And his descendants????

    Call me Drood, Eddie Drood. Some know me as Shaman Bond and most simply don' t want to know me at all. For centuries, my family has been keeping the things that lurk on the darker side of existence as far away as possible from humans like you, without you even knowing we' re there. Unfortunately for us, not everybody appreciates what we Droods do. Recently, I personally managed to survive yet another attempt on my life, but the rest of my relatives weren' t so lucky.

    Would you try another book from Simon R. Green and/or Gideon Emery?

    Oh yes I enjoy Simon R Green the Darkside series and Secret Histories series are very good but each series has weaker entries


    Would you be willing to try another book from Simon R. Green? Why or why not?

    Yes Mr Green is very talented and I have been meaning to try Hawk and Fisher series just not enough time


    What three words best describe Gideon Emery’s voice?

    Very good on differentiation on the Characters voices.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Oh Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Probably one of the weaker stories. But still its Eddie and Molly against the world much as in the First book. To me it seemed like the ending was anti climactic in this book. But it didn't seem to do much to advance the over reaching plot of why Molly's parents were killed by the Droods. Though the Matriarch does seem to have plans for Eddie from beyond the Grave. That could prove interesting. Looking forward to the next book!

    Captain Jason Reynolds is back! In the third installment of the Scrapyard Ship sci-fi adventure series, Space Vengeance, Jason, his family, and The Lilly's crew face the impending destruction of their internal nano-devices. What's worse, what remains of the Craing fleet, some 1,500 warships, is back and headed straight toward the already decimated planets within Allied space. In what looks to be a one-way suicide mission, Jason must leave Nan and Mollie behind on Earth and out of harm's way.

    What made the experience of listening to Space Vengeance the most enjoyable?

    The characters as always. Widget and the Captain being the most fun. Though Molly is up there too.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Obviously Captain Reynolds. Captain Reynolds tries to do the right things but he keeps getting tripped up. The Nanotech cliff hangar from the previous book was done a bit Deus Ex Machina but the whole series is kinda of that way. Its not a bad thing though.


    What about L. J. Ganser’s performance did you like?

    Mr Ganser does a good job as usual.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Its a good book for a long ride or a trip. Its enjoyable and interesting and keeps you guessing.


    Any additional comments?

    If you don't like Cliff Hangars all the books end with them.

    My name is Sally. For over 30 years I've prowled the night, one of the undead. In that time I've walked amongst you - a wolf in sheep's clothing - doing unspeakable things, killing countless people. Now, on the eve of Armageddon, a chance for redemption presents itself. My past has come looking for me, beckoning me back to the city of my rebirth. Those who killed me the first time are intent on finishing the job. I'm outnumbered and outgunned, but they've got another thing coming if they think I'm outclassed.

    Its nice to see Sally step up to lead a story. But the main subtext is where the HELL IS BILL!!!! But its still a very entertaining read and the end is a very nice payoff. Sally grows a lot as a character in this book and should make her even more so going forward.

    In October 1943, a U.S. destroyer sailed out of Philadelphia and supposedly vanished, the result of a Navy experiment with electromagnetic radiation. The story was considered a hoax - but now Juan Cabrillo and his Oregon colleagues aren't so sure. There is talk of a new weapon soon to be auctioned, something very dangerous to America's interests, and the rumors link it to the great inventor Nikola Tesla, who was working with the Navy when he died in 1943. Was he responsible for the experiment? Are his notes in the hands of enemies?

    A brief word to Mr Du Brul. Some of us are still waiting for you to keep your promise on returning to a certain Geologist AKA Phillip Mercer, it been 8 years........

    Very good Oregon novel. Better than the last few I hate to say it but to me this was a bit better than the last Dirk Pitt book. Topical and timely in its fiction with the Far East as the area most involved in the story. I will very much recommend this book to any Cussler fan.

    When Nathan Garrett’s friend seeks his help investigating a bloody serial killer, the pattern of horrific crimes leads to a creature of pure malevolence, born of hatred and dark magic. As powerful as he is, Nate fears he may be overmatched, but when evil targets those he cares about and he is confronted by dire threats both old and new, Nate must reveal a secret from his recently remembered past to remind his enemies why they should fear him once more.

    Not a bad second book for the series. It was nice to see Tommy is still around and that Nathan still has some other friends around. The Werewolf pack was fun but the story lacked some of the punch the first book had to me. Still a good listen and I would still recommend this to other fans of the genre. The idea that Nathan is friends with Hades I found slightly funny as his depiction in the book is far from what history portrays him as. Its a fun ride and I eagerly await the next book.

    Wow I have read Tom Clancy most of my adult life and I cant believe he is gone. This was a very good book. Just enough of both Jack jr and Jack Sr. With some nice new story of what the President got up to back in the CIA. It plays well with the current politics and was believable. I only wish Mr Clancy could be here to give us more!!!

    In the 20th century Earth sent probes, transmissions, and welcoming messages to the stars. Unfortunately, someone noticed. The Galactics arrived with their battle fleet in 2052. Rather than being exterminated under a barrage of hell-burners, Earth joined their vast Empire. Swearing allegiance to our distant alien overlords wasn't the only requirement for survival. We also had to have something of value to trade, something that neighboring planets would pay their hard-earned credits to buy. As most of the local worlds were too civilized to have a proper army, the only valuable service Earth could provide came in the form of soldiers....

    It was a good story. The characters aren't as compelling to me as in the Star Force series. But a very similar start. The only things we humans are good for in the universe is fighting is what the alien overlords think. I will get the next book to see how the plot develops.

    In the Pacific, as USS Walker is repaired and updated after a previous battle and Reddy is healing from his wounds, planning begins for a bold raid on the very heart of the Grik Empire. But time is running out for the Alliance army in India, and the Allied forces in the west must gather in an unprecedented land, air, and sea campaign to destroy the mighty Grik battle fleet and break through to their relief. All other plans go on hold when the attempt proves more difficult - and more heartbreakingly costly - than anyone imagined.

    Its nice to see some of the political intrigues getting finished up. Hopefully the Alliance will pull together again after some of the internal strife. Cant wait for the next book as usual.

    Nice to see them (The Alliance) find more allies and scary to think that the Grik/Jap might have too.
