    After 12 years of secret training, Atticus O’Sullivan is finally ready to bind his apprentice, Granuaile, to the earth and double the number of Druids in the world. But on the eve of the ritual, the world that thought he was dead abruptly discovers that he’s still alive, and they would much rather he return to the grave. Having no other choice, Atticus, his trusted Irish wolfhound, Oberon, and Granuaile travel to the base of Mount Olympus, where the Roman god Bacchus is anxious to take his sworn revenge - but he’ll have to get in line behind an ancient vampire, a band of dark elves, and an old god of mischief.

    Kyle Riggs is snatched by an alien spacecraft sometime after midnight. The ship is testing everyone it catches and murdering the weak. The good news is that Kyle keeps passing tests and staying alive. The bad news is the aliens who sent this ship are the nicest ones out there.

    For me, the military feel of this book is its main charm. It makes you feel all tough inside. The book is not pretentious like so many failed sci-fi books. It's just good at being an excellent space adventure full of high tech but strait forward guns blazing action and manly moments.
    The narrator understands this and does an excellent job at conveying the feel and pace of the book. I have listened the whole series and you won't regret doing the same. Just don't expect any brilliant writing.
    It's like that blond at the end of the bar. A good time that does not require a lot of thought.

    PS: Please only read this guys fantasy books if you want to be bored to death by an unending list of horribly cheap "romantic" cliche's.

    The collective worldbuilding method used to write these stories works quite adiquate. The stories themselves I found to range from pretty sollid to pretty brillant, saving the best for last. Karl Schroeder realy went all out and his story alone is almost worth the dough. In fact I bought the first book in a series written by him becouse I was curious if he could keep his incredible imagination going for longer then 10.000 words. So far so good...

    There is also a sequel to this volume called Metatropolis: Cascadia which franktly sucks sqirelorphasis (English is not my first language so I probably spell like a monkey). It took me over a week to finish the first 2 hour story in that volume. You know, when a writer only talks about everything that supposedly happens but it never seems to realy happen. Don't tell it .. Show it!! That sequel was so horrifyingly bad that I realy started doubting the original quality of the first work. So do yourself a favour, stick to this one and let it go at that.

    There is a criminal spoiler in the opening credits (not even in the actual book). This spoiler tells the main storyline of the book and COMPLETELY ruims the first chapters!!! I am mad out of my skull becouse of this utter ignorence and am going to demand a FULL refund.
    At irst I thought it was just an introduction and actualy part of the book, untill the narrator went:
