    Jon Hudson, lead investigator for the Department of Homeland Security's Fusion Center-P, thinks his job is a joke. While other Fusion Centers focus on thwarting terrorist activity, Hudson's division is tasked with handling paranormal threats to national security, of which there have been zero during his years at the DHS. When yet another Sasquatch sighting leads to a research facility in the backwoods of Maine, disguised as an abandoned Nike missile site, Hudson's job becomes deadly serious.

    I couldn't recommend this book enough to anyone who's fond of classic Japanese movie monsters like Godzilla and Mothra!

    Jeffrey Kafers smooth delivery draws you in, makes it real and doesn't let you off the hook until the last sentence has been read.

    Jeremy Robinsons writing is exquisite. Cant wait to grab the next in the series!

    Waking up in an operating room, much to the surprise of the attending surgeons, Malcolm Weir frantically fights his way out of a secret government installation, located in downtown Los Angeles. Battling through a mass of armed guards and meta-gene operatives, the cyborg warrior realizes he has no memory of how he got there. The past 11 months are gone. With a hole in his mind, Weir must retrace his steps for the past year, fighting his way through the nearly endless horde of super powered mercenaries and assassins the government sends after him.

    I cannot put my finger precisely on why I didn't enjoy this book as much as I wanted to.
    Perhaps it was the Keanu Reeves style narration delivery (The characterisations were far better). Perhaps it was the numerous errors (Kirsten,Kristen which is it?). Perhaps it was the product placements which ground my gears? Did we *really* need to know it was a Sony monitor, or an Apple MacBook?

    All that said, I think it just didn't excite me the way the author intended. It was all just a bit hollywood for me. I like my fiction to have grit, real emotion and characters I care about.

    This had none of that.

    If you loved 90's SciFi flicks like Universal Soldier, The Terminator, Red Scorpion then this will be your bag.

    Sergeant Jacob Knox leads the Head Knockers, a unit of scout-saboteurs in the war against the Dread Duke and his armies. They are the favorite squad among Captain Brighton's Stormwalkers, until an ambush by shapeshifters kills the Captain, half the company, and Knox's best men. Now the new Captain has new orders: he's sending the Head Knockers to investigate an abandoned village, the possible source of the attack.

    If you could sum up The Prince of Luster and Decay in three words, what would they be?

    Soldiers, Demons, War


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Prince of Luster and Decay?

    The build up to the final scene was tense. The narrator did a fine job of keeping the atmosphere as the author would have intended. Vocally, Nigel Patterson sounds very like Sir Tony Robinson, which is no bad thing!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I really enjoyed the final standoff between the sergeants character and The Prince


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

    Yes, as a novella it was easily listened to on my morning commute


    Any additional comments?

    I shall be looking for the rest of the series!
