    There’s something out there: a juggernaut of evil bearing down to crush the Republic - unless one lone Jedi, shunned and reviled, can stop it. Revan: hero, traitor, conqueror, villain, savior. A Jedi who left Coruscant to defeat Mandalorians - and returned a disciple of the dark side, bent on destroying the Republic. The Jedi Council gave Revan his life back, but his memories have been erased. All that’s left are nightmares - and deep, abiding fear. What exactly happened beyond the Outer Rim? Revan can’t quite remember, yet can’t entirely forget.

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

    I was rather dispointed by the ending of the story. It was as if the author didn't know how to finish the story. There was the build up and then nothing.


    Have you listened to any of Marc Thompson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have never been disapointed by any book I have listened to that Marc Thompson has done.

  • Thunder Below!: The USS Barb Revolutionizes Submarine Warfare in World War II

    Under the leadership of her fearless skipper, Captain Gene Fluckey, the Barb sank the greatest tonnage of any American sub in World War II. At the same time, the Barb did far more than merely sink ships-she changed forever the way submarines stalk and kill their prey.

    This is a gripping adventure chock-full of "you-are-there" moments. Fluckey has drawn on logs, reports, letters, interviews, and a recently discovered illegal diary kept by one of his torpedomen.

    If you could sum up Thunder Below! in three words, what would they be?

    Real life is better than fiction! I know that's more than 3 words, but sometimes real life is far more interesting than anything someone can just make up.


    What other book might you compare Thunder Below! to and why?

    I guess I would compare it to Blackhawk Down. You listen to this book and think that this is made up, but it's not it's all real. I enjoyed how the author incorporated the reports from the Japanese, it is a refreshing change to see the other side's perspective of how things happened.


    Which character – as performed by Corey Snow – was your favorite?

    I didn't have a favorite.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I could have listened to the whole thing in one sitting I would have. It was a book I found myself listening to every chance I got.


    Any additional comments?

    I typically don't listen to non-fiction but I really enjoyed this book.

    Would you consider the audio edition of To Honor You Call Us to be better than the print version?

    I don't know I have only listened to the audio version.


    What other book might you compare To Honor You Call Us to and why?

    The lost fleet series, because it has a similar feel.


    What about Ray Chase’s performance did you like?

    His portrayal the admiral. Chase gave him a voice that just fits the character perfectly.


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

    There were parts where I laughed out loud.


    Any additional comments?

    I wasn't to sure about downloading this book but after reading some of the other reviews I took a chance on it, and could not stop listening to it. I have already downloaded the second book and am looking forward to listening to that one also.

    Tatooine - a harsh desert world where farmers toil in the heat of two suns while trying to protect themselves and their loved ones from the marauding Tusken Raiders. A backwater planet on the edge of civilized space. And an unlikely place to find a Jedi Master in hiding, or an orphaned infant boy on whose tiny shoulders rests the future of a galaxy.

    Where does Kenobi rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would have to say in the top 10.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It wasnt Kenobi going out to save the galaxy, just him dealing with normal everyday life.


    Have you listened to any of Jonathan Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have liked all of Davis's preformaces. I don't the Star Wars world would be the same if he didnt do it.

    A prison doctor injects a condemned serial killer with a formula designed to keep his consciousness awake while his body rots in the grave. But all drugs have unforeseen side-effects. Before he can be buried, the killer wakes up. Hungry. Infected. Contagious. This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang… but a bite.

    Would you listen to Dead of Night again? Why?

    Yes I would, Maberry makes you think the end of the world really could start this way. It was a pretty good zombie story.


    What other book might you compare Dead of Night to and why?

    Its comparable to Patient Zero also by Maberry.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It was more of the descriptions and details than any one moment, Maberry paints a pretty gruesome picture of the attacks and gore.

    In the stunning finale of the epic Fate of the Jedi series, Jedi and Sith face off - with Coruscant as their battlefield. For the Sith, it’s the chance to restore their dominance over the galaxy that forgot them for so long. For Abeloth, it’s a giant step in her quest to conquer all life everywhere. For Luke Skywalker, it’s a call to arms to eradicate the Sith and their monstrous new master once and for all. In a planetwide strike, teams of Jedi Knights take the Sith infiltrators by swift and lethal surprise.
