    A new generation is growing up on the island paradise of Camelot, ignorant of the Great Grendel Wars fought when their parents and grandparents first arrived on Earth. Setting out to explore the mainland, this group of young rebels feels ready to fight any grendels that get in their way. On Avalon, however, there are monsters that dwarf the ones their parents fought, and as the group will soon learn, monsters also dwell in the human heart. Avalon does not give up her secrets easily, and some of those mysteries are wicked as sin and blacker than the grave.

    What made the experience of listening to Beowulf's Children the most enjoyable?

    Actions have consequences and too many sci-fi stories ignore the aftermath of changing the ecology of a world, even if it seems like a good idea.
    Beowulf's Children deals with the arrogance of man attempting to change a
    world, instead of doing what humans do best "adapt"!


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

    From across the stars, they arrived at paradise.But paradise has a horrifying secret.

    Gil 'The Arm' Hamilton was one of the top operatives of ARM, the elite UN police force. His intuition was unfailingly accurate, his detective skills second to none, and his psychic powers - esper sense and telekinesis - were awesome.

    Now you can hear all the classic stories of the legendary ARM operative, collected in one volume for the first time - plus, an all-new, never-before-published Gil Hamilton adventure!

    Nivens "Tales of Known Space" are great!
    I hope that Audible.com makes more in this series available.
    Protector, ties in nicely with his award winning RINGWORLD.

    Joe Haldeman is the esteemed Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of The Forever War. Things are going nowhere for lowly MIT research assistant Matt Fuller - especially not after his girlfriend drops him for another man. But then while working late one night, he inadvertently stumbles upon what may be the greatest scientific breakthrough ever. His luck, however, runs out when he finds himself wanted for murder - in the future.

    Brian says: "A fun, light story"
    "Enjoyable"
    Overall

    Fun to listen, time travel with a twist.
