A short and well written book. It grips you from the beginning and keeps you entertained until the last page. Go give it a try, you won't be disappointed. The narration really makes a difference with this book, you feel apart of the story, it is so good. Give it a listen,
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.
This audio book is a thrill ride, it's 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.
The Duology is set 8 years after the events that happen in Beyond Judgement. Jake Bronson and his son are the primary focus although all of Jake's friends and family are back for the ride. As we've come to know, Bard always includes an enemy you want to see defeated and this book is no different. The writing sets such a fantastic pace that once you start it is really difficult to stop, add to that the brilliant performance that Bray gives and it was beyond difficult to hit that pause button.
So we finally get to see 'Deep Blue' in action, and it was great to see. The man behind Chess Team is as good as the rest of the team at getting himself into and out of trouble. A great, fun story. Kane Gilmour & Jeremy Robinson are a great team and I look forward to reading more from them. Jeffrey Kafer does a great job with the narration, immersing the listener in the story.
I really enjoyed this book. The chapters are short which I like. The story is well written and thought out. It's action packed and a definitely page turner. I look forward to reading the other books in the series.
The narrator does a wonderful job of immersing the listener into the story, keeping you listening.
Every time I listen to an audiobook written by William Meikle I think to myself, I must listen to more. He never ceases to grab my attention and keep me listening, this book was no different. John & Alan Granger are brothers, one is a police officer, the other a reporter who are both investigating the suspicious disappearance of a child, but all is not what it seems. The characters are solid, you can't help but feel for them and hope for a positive outcome. I loved them, although I did had a bit of a soft spot for Alan.
William Meikle also makes perfect choices for the narrators of his books, he always seems to find just the right voice for each of the books I've listened too. This was my first time listening to anything narrated by Chris Barnes but it will definitely not be the last. His voice is quite hypnotic and once I started listening I just had to finish. The writing and narration were a perfect mix, it just immerses you into the story, it was hard to believe that I wasn't actually in Scotland. A definite 'must listen'
