If you are looking for a new hero, Nick Kismet is definitely one to keep an eye out for, the books are full of action, intrigue and a tiny bit of romance for good measure. This is book 2 in the series and just as fun as the other books, I couldn't put it down. I really hope we see more from Kismet. Sean Ellis is an author that sits near the top of my favourite author list and he continues to deserve that place, if you haven't read anything by him yet...you should and soon.
Another action-packed adventure. Some twist and turns, some you'll see coming but others that you won't. Some may even have you shouting at the book in shock. The humour is still very evident and a big part of what makes this series fun, the pop culture references are a nice touch. I'm looking forward to the next book.
I had a different version of this audiobook and only managed about 15 minutes, maybe it was because I had just finished 'The Hunters' but the characters sounded wrong and whiny. Luckily I was able to return it and use the credit to get this edition.
I love Dudley Hinton's performance and was so glad to experience the characters as I imagined them, thanks to his performance in 'The Hunters'. The performance is smooth and engrossing, the characters are each very distinct and identifiable. I look forward to listening to more.
I have never read anything by Chris Kuzneski before but The Hunters had been recommended to me a number of times. I figured I'd give it a shot and listen to the audiobook.
What a thrill ride, edge of your seat action, fun and interesting characters and a historical mystery. The chapters are short and it's easy to get into the story. If you like a dose of humour with your action, definitely give this book a try. I had moments of actually laughing out loud.
Dudley Hinton really immerses the listener in the action of the story, making the unbelievable, believable with his performance. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
Dodge Dalton is back for another adventure and this one is just as, if not, more fun than the two that came before it. I just love the characters of Dodge and Hurricane, they are fun, well written and really blend well together. The thing I love about these books is that the good guys are old-fashioned good guys and do what it takes to rescue their friends, save the world and maybe get the girl. Also, that you are kept guessing, so who is the 'real' bad guy and when all is revealed you can't help but sit back and thing 'darn, how did I miss that?' That is the effect of good writing. I really hope we see more of Dodge, his friends and their adventures in the future because these books are pure escapism.
Jeffrey S. Fellin or as I've taken to calling him 'The Voice of Dodge' delivers a fantastic performance. Really encompassing the listener in the story, not only making the characters seem larger than life but allowing the listener to visualise what is happening and feel like they are observing the story as it's happening. The performance is smooth and it's very easy to follow which character is which. I think Sean Ellis' writing and Jeffrey S. fellin's narration are a perfect blend. I really hope for more in the future.
I'm really enjoying this series. The writing is smooth and well done with characters that are fun and interesting, the chapter are short and action-packed. The story flows really well and you never get lost in the action. The end leaves you wanting more. I'm looking forward to the next book.
Artie Sievers does a great job bringing the characters 'alive' the performance was smooth and it was easy to identify the characters.
I really enjoyed this story, Steven Savile has a way with words. At some points I was actually laughing out loud. I was slightly disappointed with the narration, it was difficult for me to get into, it wasn't very smooth and fluid which I'm used too. I felt it improved as the story went on, but overall I felt it took away from a good, well written story.
Rook is alive but struggling with the events of the last Jack Sigler/ Chess Team book, he just wants to find somewhere quiet to lick his wounds and contemplate re-joining the team. He finds himself in the most remote place and still manages to get into trouble. Jeremy Robinson and Edward G. Talbot write this novella so perfectly, it has the right balance of seriousness, humor and the usual chess team hijinks.
Rook is funny but with substance and I think Kafer does a great job of showing that in his performance.
Jeremy Robinson and David Wood make a fantastic team. They both have series that grab a readers attention and write fun, action-packed adventures and this audiobook is no different. Zelda Baker, Callsign: Queen is searching for her team-mate Rook when her plane is diverted, Deep Blue wants Queen to do a reconnaissance mission only, but this is Queen and when things get tough she kicks some butt. I will never look at a fairground in the same way ever again.
Jeffrey Kafer really sells his performance in this audiobook, immersing the listener and makes it a fun listen.
Bishop is one of my favourite Jeremy Robinson characters....ever. I have been hoping and waiting for the individual character novellas to become available on audio and finally it has happened. Erik Somers, Callsign: Bishop is heading to Iran on a mission to Investigate a potential 'Manifold' facility, but all is not what it seems. This time, if things go wrong, Bishop won't be able to heal. The odds are high but this is Bishop, no-one messes with him.
Jeffrey Kafer's performance was fantastic, he immerses the listener in the story and leaves them wanting more.
If you like the Jack Sigler/ Chess Team thrillers, you will love this audiobook. The character of Knight has never been one of my favourites but he really shines in this book. A familiar face turns up to help Knight in the fight of his life. The action is fast-paced and well written. Jeffrey Kafer performance is spot on and really enhances the book.
This is part two of the Everlast duology and follows on from book one without missing a beat. It is quite the thriller ride, fast-paced and it will have you laughing, crying, gasping, shouting at the audible app (everyone does that, right?) and even cursing both Richard Bard and R.C. Bray.
Bray really did out-do himself with the range of characters and his performance was seamless. He has really made these books a joy to listen too.
If you haven't listened to any of this series, I recommend starting with Brainrush and offer this advice - fasten your seatbelt and enjoy the ride.
