I love John Sandford's Prey books, especially the narrated versions because Richard Ferrone is awesome.
One of the reasons I like this book because it introduces Clara, a complex and memorable character. The part about the story I don't care for is the woman who hired Clara. She was a real piece of work. She changed her mind all the time and I was disappointed that Clara went with her crazy ideas so often. Other than that, this is another case where Lucas Davenport goes after the killer with a vengeance. His stubbornness is classic in this book: he suspected the source of all this killing before others saw it. Worthy addition to the Prey series.
I am a major B. V. Larson fan and have listened to over a dozen of his books, but I couldn't get into this one. I like fantasy a lot, I even write fantasy stories, but to me, this story didn't make sense. I won't be able to finish it.
I loved this book. This new series could be Larson's best (although I really like the Undying Mercenaries series too). In Technomancer, I liked the characters, the plot, and the subplots. Plus, Christopher Lane did a great job with the narration, making the different characters easily recognizable. I could listen to him read all day.
Okay, now I can't wait for the next book in the series. B. V. Larson is a prolific writer, which is most excellent, but too bad he can't publish a new book every week. I could go for that!
These were enjoyable stories, I'm glad I purchased this audiobook. The stories were interesting and kept my interest. The narrator was good also. I plan to listen to more books by Michael Bray.
The book started out well enough, but couldn't maintain the tempo or interest level. For the most part, the story didn't make any sense to me. Plus I didn't care for all the constant phone calls between the protagonist and his wife. I just wanted the story to "get with the program" - but alas, it never did. I like speculative fiction, but not this one.
I love this book. I've read it and heard it numerous times and have often recommended the book to anyone who reads. Scalzi wrote a great story with Old Man's War and Wm Dufris did an awesome job of narrating it.
Because of this book I became a "Scalzi" fan. This is a great series. I've also enjoyed other Scalzi books, including Fuzzy Nation.
I enjoyed Book 1 of Undying Mercenaries well enough to purchase Book 2. Even though I didn't care as much for Book 2, I wanted to give the series another try by purchasing Book 3.
I'm glad I did!
Book 3 has a great plot and memorable characters. I enjoyed this book so much I'll be listening to it again, soon. I have already recommended it to my sci-fi reading friends. In addition, Mark Boyett did a masterful job of narration.Now I'm ready for Book 4.
What a unique beginning! And from there I found the book interesting all the way through. Never a dull moment. Believable interaction between the Star Force leaders and among the warriors too. Good detail for the aliens. Wonderful narrator.
I realize BV Larson has been writing for some time, but this is my first exposure to his books. As soon as I finished Swarm I ordered the next two in this series.
This is my second B. V Larson book. I totally didn't want it to end. I'm sold on both the author and the narrator, Mark Boyett. I'll be purchasing and listening to many more of Larson's Star Force books.
I love John Sandford's Prey books. I have listened to all of them more than once. Lucas Davenport is such a great character - both believable and likeable. Richard Ferrone, the voice of Lucas Davenport, is perfect for these books. Field of Prey has some nail-biting, hair-raising twists and turns. What an amazing story.
Sandford is a great thrillmaster. Every year I look forward to another Prey book, and I hope there are many more.
It took me awhile to finish this book because I kept expecting more action, but then I usually listen to thrillers. However, the book was interesting enough and the narrator was good. I thought the most outstanding part of the book was the epilog. I enjoyed the intrigue in this section along with the condensed activity, plus the ending certainly laid a solid foundation for the next book in the series.
