    Navy Corpsman Elliot Carlyle joined up to save lives and see the universe. Now he and Bravo Company's Black Wizards of the interstellar Fleet Marine Force are en route to Bloodworld - a hellish, volatile rock colonized by the fanatical Salvationists who desired an inhospitable world where they could suffer for humanity's sins. Their penance could prove fatal - for the Qesh, a strange alien race detected but still mysterious for six decades, have made violent first contact. Suddenly countless lives depend upon Bravo Company - perhaps even the fate of homeworld Earth itself.

    What would have made Bloodstar better?

    Stopping the constant conversation about medical technology and medical jargon.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Nothing by Ian Douglas, He just phoned this book in. I cannot believe the publisher printed it.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Not to have done it.


    What character would you cut from Bloodstar?

    I would cut the corpsman. The lead.

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

    Brian says: "Duct tape is magic and should be worshiped"
    "Best book I have ever owned."

    This is a one of a kind story. I did not want to stop listening.


    What other book might you compare The Martian to and why?

    None this is orders of magnitude better than all the others I own.


    What does R. C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He made Mark real.


    Any additional comments?

    This just is the best story I have ever heard.

  • Warbound: Book III of the Grimnoir Chronicles

    Story
    (2638)

    Only a handful of people in the world know that mankind's magic comes from a living creature, and it is a refugee from another universe. The Power showed up here in the 1850s because it was running from something. Now it is 1933, and the Power's hiding place has been discovered by a killer. It is a predator that eats magic and leaves destroyed worlds in its wake. Earth is next. Former private eye Jake Sullivan knows the score. The problem is, hardly anyone believes him.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Warbound to be better than the print version?

    YES


    What other book might you compare Warbound to and why?

    The Lost Gate. They both are just a very good listen. The whole series is wonderful.


    What does Bronson Pinchot bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It is hard to explain. I once bought a book just because he read it and I was not disappointed.
