    Blind Descent explores both the brightest and darkest aspects of the timeless human urge to discover—to be first. It is also a thrilling epic about a pursuit that makes even extreme mountaineering and ocean exploration pale by comparison.

    Overall

    I'm an adventure/travel story buff. I loved Into Thin Air, Lost City of Z, Shadow Divers and Endurance. This one ranks right up there with those amazing true stories. I'm amazed at the courage it takes to explore the deepest caves in the world and the dibilitating panic attack they call, "The Rapture" that can hit anyone at anytime whilst inside the deep recesses of the Earth!! I highly recommend this adventure and the narrator does an excellent job. A credit well spent!!!

    2057. Humanity has raised exploiting the solar system to an art form. Bella Lind and the crew of her nuclear-powered ship, the Rockhopper, push ice. They mine comets. And they're good at it. The Rockhopper is nearing the end of its current mission cycle, and everyone is desperate for some much-needed R & R, when startling news arrives from Saturn: Janus, one of Saturn's ice moons, has inexplicably left its natural orbit and is now heading out of the solar system at high speed.

    Story

    The concept as a whole is an A+. One of Jupiter's moons decides it's time to take off! The nearest and most likely candidate to intercept the moon/spaceship is not the Space Marines or the Starship Enterprise, it's "Rock Hopper" a space mining ship. What's not to love!!

    Thus begins a space opera unlike any other, the adventure is mind boggling and will leave you, in the end, with many more questions then when you started. This is not necessairly a bad thing but it does take 20 hours to get to that point.

    I enjoyed this story and would consider it a worthwhile book credit for those who like "First Contact" type storylines.

    I also enjoyed Pandora's Star, Judas Unchained and House of Suns.

  • Patient Zero: The Joe Ledger Novels, Book 1

    When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

    Kim Venatries says: "Yes! It IS that good. Five stars and more."
    "Hard to please.... It's a 5 star!"
    Overall

    Great story, fabulous narration! I really like the way this story goes from Zombies to tactical team dynamics to put them all together for a fast paced action filled thriller. I really am hard to please and really rely on these reviews. So with that, trust me you wont regret this use of a credit.

    In August of 1914, the British ship Endurance set sail for the South Atlantic. In October, 1915, still half a continent away from its intended base, the ship was trapped, then crushed in the ice. For five months, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men, drifting on ice packs, were castaways in one of the most savage regions of the world.

    Overall

    Amazing!!! I have read every (ok almost) true adventure book out there. This one beats them all hands down!! I cannot believe what these men had to go through and thank God the journals were located to allow this book to be written. I can't tell you how many times I had to bundle up and keep the cold at bay as the story unfolds..... Download it, buy it, use a credit on it you will not be disappointed!!

  • Day by Day Armageddon: Beyond Exile

    The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve.

    Make sure you start with Book 1 "Day by Day Armagedon" then sit back and enjoy Beyond Exile. I love J.L. Bourne's writing style and the Narrator Jay Snyder, has the perfect voice for this part. I enjoy a good Zombie story and or movie, some more then others, and this is rated right up there with my #1 picks. Please keep the stories coming Mr. Bourne !!
