    After successfully freeing Alliance POWs, "Black Jack" Geary discovers that the Syndics plan to ambush the fleet with their powerful reserve flotilla in an attempt to annihilate it once and for all. And as Geary has the fleet jump from one star system to the next, hoping to avoid the inevitable confrontation, saboteurs contribute to the chaos.

    Chance says: "Listen to the complete series"
    "One Of Sci Fi's Best"
    Overall

    This series was absolutely one of the best to which I have listened. The author's detail in describing space travel at such distances and the detailed battle sequences are very believable. I could see them while I was listening and I was transported there. I hope the "Black Jack" Geary character will be back soon!

    Meet Shaman Bond, aka Eddie Drood, scion of the ancient Drood family. He is devoted to protecting humanity from the forces of darkness. Protected by the secret weapon received at birth by all members of the Drood family - a magical gold torc (i.e., a neck ring) that turns into a suit of nearly impervious golden armor - Eddie faces arcane dangers with healthy doses of wry self-confidence and sarcasm. Then the family matriarch sends him on a mission that turns out to be a deadly setup.

    Overall

    Green is a masterful writer of this genre. He should rank up there with Gaiman and the like. It was difficult to put this down a real "page turner." Green adds just enough humor to the intrigue to have you feeling more than one emotion at a time, well done! The narration was spectacular as well, looking forward to book 2.

    Richard Mayhew is an unassuming young businessman living in London, with a dull job and a pretty but shrewish fiancée. Then one night he stumbles upon a girl lying on the sidewalk, bleeding. He stops to help her, and his life is changed forever. Soon he finds himself living in a London most people would never have dreamed of: a city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels. It is a world that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth of sewer canals and abandoned subway stations.

    Thomas says: "Neverwhere is Great"
    "Neil Gaiman is THE master storyteller!"
    Overall

    Gaiman is a literary genius. There is never a dull moment. You feel for each character as they seem to be alive. Makes you wonder, is there a realm below?
