Sorry, but of all the books I've listened to, this was one of the most painful (but maybe that's because I didn't just turn it off when it got really bad). This story started out slow, but had an interesting enough presence to keep me listening. Once I got hooked into the plot and wanted to find out what happened, it went from slow to boring to "Please stop!!!". Honestly the only reason I finished it was because I didn't have anything else to listen to. What should have been a SciFi story about encounters with aliens, etc turned into a drama about two rather unlikeable women who were always banging heads with each other, and both convinced of their moral superiority. I like John Lee as a narrator, but after hours of listening to him impersonate an arrogant, self righteous woman with a Russian accent (far from the best use of his voice talent, and kind of annoying to listen to), I may never be able to listen to him again. Skip this one, there's plenty of other good books out there.
This one was very enjoyable, had me on edge towards the end really wanting to know what happens. Just the right mix of reality, fantasy, magic, politics, etc. Looking forward to more in this series.
I really enjoyed the Michael Forsythe series, and Gerard Doyle is a great narrator, but this book was boring and slow. Waste of a credit
Really like the narrator. Surprisingly good. Story was actually kinda mediocre for one of King's books, but one the whole not bad. Plot line didn't have the depth of most of his other work.
One of the best books I have listened to yet. Great plot line, characters, and narration. Definitely going to get the next one.
I was expecting something with a similar tone as the Mistborn series, but this is more like The Beyonders if you know that series. It's a decent book in its own right, but this one has more of a comedic super hero tone. Not what I was expecting from Sanderson.
I enjoyed the first book, but this one was way too slow and the narration was a bit annoying.
The plot moves along and develops a bit more, but this is really just the same as the last book with a different setting. Not necessarily a bad thing, as I liked the other books a good bit.
This one is pretty consistent with its predecessors - if you enjoyed them you'll probably like this one. Not much else to say, really.

I'm not a huge fan of military sci-fi, but this one has some pretty nice twists on the standard pattern. For the most part the characters are likeable and the plot is interesting.
