    The Galactics arrived with their Battle fleet in 2052. Rather than being exterminated under a barrage of hell-burners, Earth joined a vast Empire that spanned the Milky Way. Our only worthwhile trade goods are our infamous mercenary legions, elite troops we sell to the highest alien bidder. In the third book in the series, James McGill is deployed on another alien world. His third interstellar tour is different in every way. Rather than meeting up with a primitive society, this time he’s headed to an advanced world.

    Story

    B.V. Larson has certainly kept up the quality in this latest instalment of the Undying Mercenaries. The plot is excellent and the adventure non-stop. The character development of all the major cast continues with them being tested in many ways. The great thing about these books are they are complete books with the story finishing at the end. There are tantalizing bits about what may be happening next but it is none stop.

    The reading by Mark Boyett is fantastic and the extra dimension he adds to a brilliant story is something to appreciate as you listen to this book.

  • Exposed: The Secret Life of Jodi Arias

    On June 9, 2008, the butchered body of Travis Alexander was found in his Mesa, Arizona, home. The grisly nature of his death made instant headlines: With 29 knife wounds, his throat slit, and a gunshot to the head, Travis was left to die. The prime suspect in the case was Alexander's ex-girlfriend, the attractive and soft-spoken Jodi Arias. Though Arias initially said that she was nowhere near the scene of crime, little about this case was as it seemed, and before long she had been caught lying to police. As the investigation progressed, her lies evolved multiple times before finally resting on an appalling claim: She had killed Travis in self-defense.

    Would you try another book from Jane Velez-Mitchell and/or Elizabeth White?

    No


    Has Exposed turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    This is a very biased portrail of the Jodi Arias case. The author is infatuated by the prosecution and give scant time the to defence. I had not heard of the this case prior to reading this book and I still have not learned a great deal about it other then what people wore in court each day.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The audio quality is poor and with the noise on the recording this sounds like a 1940's audio recording.


    What could Anne McCaffrey have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Well if it was unabridged it would be a lot better but with the level of noise on the recording, I doubt the author could have helped.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Have a clear voice and not have a bad recording. The amount of distortion in the recording was also a problem with 'S' sounding lisp like.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Massive Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    This level of quality is not up to the standard of Audible

    My Tank Is Fight! contains a humorous and exciting examination of 20 real inventions from World War II that never saw the light of day. Each entry includes full technical details, a complete development history, in-depth analysis, and a riveting fictionalized account of the invention's success or failure on the battlefield.

    What did you like best about My Tank is Fight!? What did you like least?

    The specification and summary about the ideas behind each tank was fine but the fictional combat was a complete waste .


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It was one chapter per subject so there was no ending.


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

    No
