    They first appear as a series of dots on astronomical plates, heading from Saturn directly toward Earth. Since the ringed planet carries no life, scientists deduce the mysterious ship to be a visitor from another star. The world's frantic efforts to signal the aliens go unanswered. The first contact is hostile: the invaders blast a Soviet space station, seize the survivors, and then destroy every dam and installation on Earth with a hail of asteriods.

    A Feast for Crows brings to life dark magic, intrigue and terrible bloodshed as the war-torn landscape of the Seven Kingdoms is threatened by destruction as vast as any in its violent past. The War of the Five Kings has ripped Westeros apart. The bloodthirsty, treacherous and cunning Lannisters occupy the Iron Throne, with allies as ruthless as themselves. Lord Frey was host at the Red Wedding, so called for the massacre of the guests, their screams unheard above the music of the feast.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    A great story line and the narrator does a great job with the diverse range of characters.
    The narrator does re-use some voices but with so many key players it would be hard for anyone to do better.
    How George managed to keep this story line in place and not get lost is amazing.


    What other book might you compare A Feast for Crows (Part One) to and why?

    All the Song of Ice and Fire Series.
    Tad Williams: Shadowmarch
    Raymond E Fiest: All his
    David Eddings: All his


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Whole storyline


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Too hard to make a movie about this series, there is just to much happening.
    The movie would be a week long

    Kris Longknife is a daughter of privilege, born to money and power. Her father is the prime minister of her home planet, her mother the consummate politician's wife. She's been raised only to be beautiful and marry well. But the heritage of the military Longknifes courses through Kris' blood - and, against her parents' objections, she enlists in the Marines.

    Jeffery says: "Harsh reviews seem undeserved to me"
    "Great Series"
    Overall

    For those who like having a female character as the focus, this is another one to listen to.Having listened to the whole series available I can highly recommend this audio book. Finish this one and you won't be able to help yourself but download the rest of the series.

    Kris Longknife has been assigned to The Wasp, the best warship beyond the Rim of Human Space. But while hunting for pirates, Kris stumbles upon something. It's a plan to kill one of the members of the aristocratic Peterwald family - and the would-be killers are setting her up as the assassin.

    Cameron says: "Great Series "I Want More"!!"
    "Great Series "I Want More"!!"
    Overall

    Kris Longknife is another great female character around which a whole universe of action can be created, much like Elizabeth Moon's Kylara Vatta or David Weber's Honor Harrington. All the Kris Longknife stories all have a similar structure but it works from beginning to end, leaving you wanting more. Can't wait for "Undaunted" to arrive on audio.

    During a routine file conversion job, a hologram of beautiful, charismatic Dr. Isabella Castillo captures the attention of Benjamin O'Rourke, data-tier specialist for the Committee for Off-World Settlement (COS). Originally established to help the Committee gain a foothold in the uncharted quadrant, the Eilithian colony Isabella and her team founded ceased transmissions - leading COS to classify it as defunct. But the shadowy O'Rourke discovers the colonists have doctored their data files.

    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    The reader does a good job with an erratic story that sounds more like an abridged version than not. I had to go back and re-listen to the story in case I had missed something, but there are just gaps in the storyline. I listened to it all the way through because I spent the money on it. Not recommended.

    After their thrilling exploits in Matthew Reilly's bestseller Seven Ancient Wonders, super-soldier Jack West and his loyal team of adventurers are back, and now they face an all-but impossible challenge. For a mysterious ceremony in an unknown location has triggered a catastrophic countdown that will climax in the destruction of all life on Earth.

    Overall

    I prefer Sean Mangan doing the narration but that was because he did the "7 Ancient Wonders" and others for another audio company. Steven Pacey does pick up the "Matthew Reilly Feel" though with his fast pace and non stop action. Reilly is a true master of this style of writing.
