    This is a great, mysterious novella. Maddock and Bones are up to their old tricks, even when supposedly on vacation. It's written well and the characters are great fun. A recommended book. I listened to it in one go, Kafer does another great job.

    Psychic ex-spy Mira Raiden's discovery of the tomb of an Atlantean king is just the first piece in a puzzle that will launch her on a journey to find the Trinity - an ancient device with the power to remake the world. But Mira is not alone in her search for the Trinity. Arrayed against her is an unholy alliance of evil: a team of brutish mercenaries; the beautiful but deadly daughter of Mira's former mentor; a manipulative grave robber, risen from the dead; and the heirs of the greatest evil the world has ever known.

    An excellent mix of adventure, action and the supernatural. It is great to see the lead character, Mira, such a strong female. I couldn't stop listening. I am definitely looking forward to the next instalment. Give it a listen, you won't be sorry.
    This was the first time I had listened to anything narrated by Jeffrey S. Fellin and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I had read the book before but the narration really takes it to a whole new level. I will be keeping an eye out for more of his work.

    I find it hard to believe that I knew nothing of this series of books until a few weeks ago, they are fantastic and I will recommend them to everyone. Beyond Judgment doesn't disappoint, like the previous two books, it is an action-packed thrill ride. Great writing, superb characters, a few twists and it leaves you crying out for more.

    RC Bray is on fine form for the audiobooks, the narration is fantastic and you feel like you are there with the characters. Let's also take a moment to comment on the accents, how does he do it? You never have any doubt over which character is which or what Country they represent. It just astounds me every time I listen to them. If you haven't listened to these yet, do yourself a favour and go get them.

    I love the Origin Series, the writing is great, the characters fun and the action is off the scale. Just what you come to expect from David Wood & Rick Chesler. This was a great match-up of authors. I would highly recommend these novellas. Jeffrey Kafer is on fine form yet again, his narration really brings the characters to life. Give it a listen.

    I loved this book, fast paced, interesting and well written. The characters are believable and it has twists that you just won't see coming, I was shocked and it takes a lot to do that. RC Bray was outstanding...I feel like I say that in every review I write about his work, but he is that good, I throughly enjoyed the narration and it definitely adds to the story. Go pick this audiobook up for sure, I'm already listening to the second book.
