    John says: "Worth My Credit"
    "Finally something really fresh and interesting"
    Overall

    Brett manages to merge religion, fantasy , history and science fiction into a believable alternate universe of Earths future or past.
    Really enjoyed listening to Pete Bradbury create the many vivid characters that Brett has introduced in print.
    If you like books like Dune, The Foundation, Enders Game ,Dreaming Void Halo and the UNCOMPLETED George C. Martin series , then you will love The Warded Man and Desert Spear.

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Suzanne says: "The scare is in the human nature under stress."
    "A little long"
    Overall

    I wanted to love it.
    I love the author.
    Since his epic story "The Stand"
    Nothing has made that big a stand.

    The first disturbing reports reached Delta Force Lieutenant Colonel Charley Castillo in the form of backchannel messages concerning covert U.S. intelligence assets working for a variety of agencies suddenly gone missing and then, suddenly, inexplicably, found dying. Or dead. One in Budapest, Hungary. One in Kiev, Ukraine. One in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, mere klicks from the Iran border.

    Luck8 says: "Best of Presidential Agent Series"
    "Black Ooups"
    Overall

    Had a very tough time following the story and gettig into the charecters.

    The year is 2380. The Intersolar Commonwealth, a sphere of stars some 400 light-years in diameter, contains more than 600 worlds, interconnected by a web of transport "tunnels" known as wormholes. At the farthest edge of the Commonwealth, astronomer Dudley Bose observes the impossible: Over 1,000 light-years away, a star...vanishes. It does not go supernova. It does not collapse into a black hole. It simply disappears.

    Devin says: "Great Epic Scifi"
    "Masterful but a very hard listen."
    Overall

    A very detailed story of epic proportion.Pandora's Star is very similar to the epics of Asmov and Tolkien. Lots of alien space wars and assassins, spy's and traitors.
    I had to re-listen to the story several times to keep track of the many plot lines. But once you're hooked, you can't put it down.
    Read this book before attempting to read the sequel.

    The "Big Three" are a trio of inmates locked up in the Minnesota Security Hospital over the years, each a particularly vicious serial killer, each with his own distinct style and propensities. Everybody feels much safer knowing that they're behind bars. Except...there's a new killer on the loose. And his handiwork bears a disturbing resemblance to some of the finer points practiced by the Big Three, details that never even made the papers.

    Ed says: "The usual group of psychopaths"
    "Broken Prey"
    Overall

    Typical of Sanford, non stop heart pounding lissening, gets a little slow midway through chap[ters 16-23 but picks up to a dramatic intense ending
