    In the sixth decade of the 21st century, Earth has been transformed. Nanotechnology has been perfected, giving humans the ability to change their environment and themselves down to the cellular level. And the study of the mind has brought a revolution in human psychotherapy and artificial intelligence. It's a sane and perfect world. Almost.

    Any additional comments?

    I wish you would separate sci-fi and fantasy. They may be the same for someone who doesn't care for either but fans usually specialize on one or the other.

    The publishers summary didn't say this book is a collection of short stories. I would like to be able to search on trilogies (or series) because it provides an opportunity for the author to develop more depth of character and settings.

    The audible.com search engine can be approved.

    Also, when finishing a book in a series, provide a button to purchase the next book of the series. It's a task to find if there is a next book, if you have it, buy it, ... and this could be an automated process to potentially make things easier for readers and increase sales for audible.

  • Keepers & Killers: Alchemy Series, Volume 2

    Story

    It's very hard to work with someone who tried to murder me. But when the mysterious senator reappears on the scene, I'm desperate enough to take whatever help I can get, even if it is from Cormac. Dealing with him is nothing compared to losing a few hundred lives and that's the best case scenario. Worst case? I lose them all.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Keepers & Killers to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version


    What did you like best about this story?

    Innovative


    Which character – as performed by Laurel Schroeder – was your favorite?

    The heroine is pretty bad-a$$.


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

    Yes. It's easy to do with such a short book.


    Any additional comments?

    All three books could be sold as one book. Most sci-fi books are about 15 hours long; that would have been more satisfying. It's very expensive otherwise. I'll pay more attention in the future about the length of the books.
