A top-secret experimental propulsion system. A questionable alliance with a mysterious green-eyed woman. What destiny has in store for the crew of the UES Aurora is far greater than any of them could ever imagine. And this is only the beginning....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Ryk Brown's first book into the Frontiers Saga is a winner. The story introduces us to the young crew of the Aurora as they are forced to take control of the ship after an experiment with a new faster than light propulsion system leaves the experienced officers dead or injured. The story is fast moving with just enough back story to give you some feeling for the characters. I can't wait to listen to next chapters in this saga.

    Internationally renowned thief and con artist Nicolas Fox is famous for running elaborate and daring scams. His greatest con of all: convincing the FBI to team him up with the only person who has ever caught him, and the only woman to ever capture his attention, Special Agent Kate O'Hare. Together they'll go undercover to swindle and catch the world's most wanted - and untouchable - criminals. Their newest target is Carter Grove, a former White House chief of staff and the ruthless leader of a private security agency.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this audiobook to a friend. It was easy to listen to and the story moved along at a brisk pace.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was a little predictable. The valuable object, a rooster head is identified, our hero's are set to steal it from the big bad guy, they accomplished the task with nary a hitch but a little help from some humorous side-kicks and the problems ensue.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    This is where this audiobook falls short. Mr. Brick is an excellent narrator but he is all wrong for this story. Kate O' Hare is the main character and the voice of the story. The narrator should be a woman.


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

    I did find a couple of chuckles.

  • Just One Damned Thing After Another: The Chronicles of St Mary's, Book 1

    Behind the seemingly innocuous façade of St Mary's, a different kind of historical research is taking place. They don't do 'time-travel' - they 'investigate major historical events in contemporary time'. Maintaining the appearance of harmless eccentrics is not always within their power - especially given their propensity for causing loud explosions when things get too quiet. Meet the disaster-magnets of St Mary's Institute of Historical Research as they ricochet around History.

    If you could sum up Just One Damned Thing After Another in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, entertaining, captivating


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story blends humor with suspense in just the off handed way I like.


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

    The reader has a way of making the off-handed comments of the author seem real and timely.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Hogan's Hero's meets the The Time Machine


    Any additional comments?

    This book is the perfect blend of humor, suspense, and drama. Well Done!
