    Marsalis is one of a new breed...literally. Genetically engineered by the U.S. government to embody the naked aggression and primal survival skills that centuries of civilization have erased from humankind, Thirteens were intended to be the ultimate military fighting force. The project was scuttled, however, when a fearful public branded the supersoldiers dangerous mutants, dooming the Thirteens to forced exile on Earth's distant, desolate Mars colony. But Marsalis found a way to slip back.

    I have been in a sci-fi mood lately and this one fit the bill nicely and what was more satisfying was the fact that this was one of those completely random titles I downloaded and found myself interested in it enough to listen to it twice.

    Excellent book which I wouldn't mind having turned into a series but this one is tied up pretty well so I doubt that'll ever happen.

    Well written, well narrated! Science has created several variants on the human gene by splicing and doing the dastardly with them and in doing so they created a group of super soldiers as well, called Variant 13. Most of them have either been killed off or shipped off to camps or Mars as they are just too dangerous to allow out in public but a few of them have managed to get out amongst humanity or to break out of captivity.

    This is where the main character of the book comes in as he is a twist who hunts twists (derogatory name for variants), and he is one intelligent and hard assed individual .. but then he has been made, and trained to be that.

    Pick it up, you'll enjoy it.

    In the 25th century, humankind has spread throughout the galaxy, monitored by the watchful eye of the U.N. While divisions in race, religion, and class still exist, advances in technology have redefined life itself. Now, assuming one can afford the expensive procedure, a person's consciousness can be stored in a cortical stack at the base of the brain and easily downloaded into a new body (or "sleeve") making death nothing more than a minor blip on a screen.

    Jake Williams says: "Altered Carbon"
    "Cyberpunk and Grit!"
    Overall

    I was looking for something that was decidedly sci-fi and cyberpunk and this fits the bill perfectly!

    Well written with three books in the series which leaves you wishing there were more to be had.

    Action and mystery, there promises to be plenty of audio action and I can only cajole you to take a listen and enjoy.

    Richard K. Morgan has received widespread praise for his astounding 25th-century novels featuring Takeshi Kovacs, and has established a growing legion of fans. Mixing classic noir sensibilities with a searing futuristic vision of an age when death is nearly meaningless, Morgan returns to his saga of betrayal, mystery, and revenge, as Takeshi Kovacs, in one fatal moment, joins forces with a mysterious woman who may have the power to shatter Harlan's World forever.

    Cynical, quick-on-the-trigger Takeshi Kovacs, the ex-U.N. envoy turned private eye, has changed careers, and bodies, once more, trading sleuthing for soldiering as a warrior-for-hire and helping a far-flung planet's government put down a bloody revolution.

    It's New Year's Eve and the elf perched on John Justin Mallory's desk wants his missing unicorn back. And that's the easy part. Mallory's wife has run off with his partner, his detective business is in ruins, and the mob's out to get him. With so many wonderful things happening, Mallory decides that a case involving a trip from reality might not be so bad. After all, what more can he lose?

    This is just pure fun!

    I downloaded this one on a whim as I was looking for something fun and different, something a touch 'Robert Asprin' (now if they would only make the M.Y.T.H. books into audio here!) and I was very pleased with this one.

    This book is very much like one of those old detective movies/radio shows and the author sets a fine and fun setting and the narrator does an excellent job with his voicing of the characters.

    Nothing serious here at all, but if you are looking for a fun, light and interesting listen I would recommend this instantly. I've already downloaded 'Stalking the Vampire', the follow up to this series and am eagerly awaiting to have the time to listen to it.

    Kat Richardson excels at creating vivid, fast-moving novels that blend urban fantasy with paranormal mystery. In Greywalker, Seattle P.I. Harper Blaine is viciously attacked and murdered - but after exactly two minutes, somehow she returns to life. Now she's seeing strange things all around her - dark visions from the shadow world - and living a normal life may no longer be possible no matter how hard she tries.

    Overall

    I actually bought this book as well as the sequel but they have sat on my book shelf for a long while now gathering dust as I kept finding something else to read and would come back and flip through for a moment or two and just decide I wasn't ready to read this one quite yet.

    Then I found the audio book, had some credits to burn and said 'what the heck!' and I'm very pleased that I did.

    Greywalker takes a new twist on the paranormal and their powers and I rather enjoyed the book. I think a few parts of it are stretching it on how quickly she jumps into some rolls but honestly, what book doesn't do that when dealing with the paranormal.

    This is a very good audio book, the narrator did her job marvelously and I have to admit that the second that the follow up book becomes available as an audio listen that I'll be snatching it up eagerly.

    The artifact is found seven miles below the surface of the sea and beneath 40 more feet of sand. The Navy's efforts to raise a wrecked submarine uncover it - and set in motion a scientific race to retrieve it, to discover just what it is and where it came from. Denser than any substance known to man, it has broken every drill bit they've tried on it and will not budge an inch. It resists every effort to breach it - or communicate with it.

    Deborah Thompson says: "Grows on you"
    "Loved it!"
    Overall

    This is one that I picked up on a whim as frankly I had a ton of credits and none of my norms was grabbing my interest.

    This is very well written and narrated and simply a lot of fun to listen to. From the beginning to a little more than halfway into the book they jump back and forth in time from chapter to chapter which really adds a lot of fun to this booth.

    First chapter will be about them finding the object at the bottom of the Ocean in 2019 and setting the plot for the current time line of the book. Next chapter is about the Changeling out of the Ocean in 1932 and becoming human. It jumps back and forth like that giving you a glimpse of what 'made' the Changeling what it is 'today' and also introducing the protagonist the Chameleon in this manner as well. Makes for some fun listening.

    Take a chance like I did, I think you'll very much enjoy it.
