Who doesn't love a great series that is imaginative, well written, with wonderful characters and lots of action? i listen or read two or three books a week and am always on the lookout for good, entertaining series. These characters are so vivid that I become totally enveloped in the alternative world. Imaginative entertainment for adults. Well produced and well worth the credits for the series.
Well written and well performed sci fi. Although the plot is old (aliens having taken over the earth and the survivors continue the battle), this series was pretty refreshing. Good characters, intelligent story telling that doesn't drag, reasonably good balance of action and character development. Its not a five star, but worth the credits as the series will provide you with many hours of entertainment. Definitely recommend starting with book one of the series for best reading/listening.
This is an entertaining series with good characters, space battles, and lots of action. Sometimes these space opera type series get too bogged down with political intrigue, etc. but the author strikes an excellent balance that keeps the story moving along. I read a great deal of serious material for work and appreciate being able to escape with some light listening that still doesn't insult my intelligence. Worth the credit for all the books in the series.
The basic underlying plot was a bit hokey. Yet this author always delivers good characters, a smooth and entertaining narrative. Found the setting interesting but just felt the storyline was too contrived and fell short of the author's usual standards. This may insult some people's intelligence.
The Vampire files are typical P N Elrod: light escapism without insulting your intelligence. The hero's character is charming, the other main characters interesting, and the story was never boring. A good listen and worth the credit.
I am always looking for entertaining series that are easy to listen to and provide some escapism from academia and the evening news. The Kris Longknife books, while not cerebrally demanding are fun, creative and just good value for one credit. They are light but don't insult my intelligence and provide a nice balance of political intrigue, action, romance, and good characters. I will buy them all.
I probably would not listen to this again but it was reasonably entertaining the first time through. Some parts were slow, a little contrived and disjointed. I liked it sufficiently that I would buy the third book to see if the author can wrap up the dangling threads
Worth the credit.
This is the first time I've ever written a review although I've listened to
I would have tightened up the whole plot, stop pretending I knew Hawaii, and stop spinning the talk back and forth as often on the time line to allow for more character development.
So sadly disappointing, especially from Preston. He broke my heart with this one.
