    Milwaukee, 1995. In a city still reeling from the crimes of Jeffrey Dahmer, a woman’s body is found with the lungs removed. Local cops think a Dahmer copycat is on the loose. But Patrick Bowers, working as a homicide detective for the Milwaukee Police Department, sees from the timing and location of the crime that this is not a copycat at all. It's a killer with an entirely different agenda....

    Story

    I'm not a fan of going back in time, particularly devoting a whole novel to it, but this time it was worth the read. Throughout the first five Bower books, the hero keeps referring to events that occurred long ago, and this novel answers a lot of questions about what happened back then. If fact if a reader new to Steven James, decides to start with this novel, and then listen to the others in order, that would probably be the best way to appreciate this series.

    I'll be happy to get back to the current time frame if Steven James plans to continue the Bowers novels with story lines involving the current characters from Book 5.

    All of Steven James novels are well crafted and extremely interesting.

    That seems to be the underlying theme of this story. Worth the credit. I thought the wilderness adventure to be fairly credible, and the main character seemed to face life with a humorous attitude, despite events.

    From the Audie-nominated narrator of The Martian. In eleven years' time, a million members of an alien race will arrive at Earth. Years before they enter orbit, their approach will be announced by the flare of a thousand flames in the sky, their ships' huge engines burning hard to slow them from the vast speeds needed to cross interstellar space. These foreboding lights will shine in our night sky like new stars, getting ever brighter until they outshine even the sun, casting ominous shadows and banishing the night until they suddenly blink out.

    Ok, so I started reading this book because of RC Bray. But once I got into it, I couldn't stop listening to it. The sci-fi was great, very interesting spin on some of the technology. Also the story line was interesting. Great character development. Not all of the bad guys are really bad. Lots of detail in the story, really well fleshed out. Cannot wait for the second book in the series.

    Humanity is losing the war. The once-mighty space navies have been crippled, officers and crew have been stretched to the limit and Earth herself has come under heavy attack. The end cannot be long delayed. For Admiral Smith and the crew of HMS Ark Royal, the stakes have never been so high. The one hope is to make contact with alien factions that might oppose the war.

    "An extraordinary thriller set at the frozen edge of the world, perfect for fans of Kate Mosse, Michael Crichton and Dan Brown.In the Arctic Ocean, the US Coast Guard icebreaker Terra Nova batters its way through the pack ice. There shouldn't be anyone near them for hundreds of miles. But then a lone skier, half-dead with cold, emerges out of the snow. His name is Tom Anderson, and he is the only survivor of a disaster at Zodiac Station, a scientific research base deep in the Arctic Circle.

    This was a well written story. You had to pay attention, and the story is told from a number of viewpoints, so you need to concentrate as well. There were many unexpected twists in the plot. I found the characters believable.

    There is a milestone in the evolution of every sentient race, a Tech Singularity Event, when the species achieves transcendence through its technological advances. Now the creatures known as humans are near this momentous turning point. But an armed threat is approaching from deepest space, determined to prevent humankind from crossing over that boundary - by total annihilation if necessary.

    Story

    You've got to get all of the rest of the books in the series. The military sci fi, the political environment, and the character development was plenty believable. In addition there is a lot of mystery about the protagonist alien species that keeps you guessing throughout the storyline. My only issue is that it currently stops at book 5.

    I loved it. In fact, I was in shock when it came to the end. I was sitting there waiting for the next part, and then here comes the Audible end of book message. If you love military scifi, you'll love this one. The author writes with a great sense of humor, which Ray Chase effectively delivers. I would love to hear the next book but not sure if the author wrote one. Anyway, this is a great series, but listen to the first book before you listen to this one.

    The Galactic Empire is dying and chaos and anarchy are breaking out everywhere. After a disastrous mission against terrorists on Earth itself, Captain Edward Stalker of the Terran Marine Corps makes the mistake of speaking truth to power, telling one of the most powerful men in the Empire a few home truths. As a result, Captain Stalker and his men are unceremoniously exiled to Avalon, a world right on the Rim of the Empire. It should have been an easy posting...

    James S.A. Corey delivers compelling SF that ranks with the best in the field. In Leviathan Wakes, ice miner Jim Holden is making a haul from the rings of Saturn when he and his crew encounter an abandoned ship, the Scopuli. Uncovering a terrifying secret, Jim bears the weight of impending catastrophe. At the same time, a detective has been hired by well-heeled parents to find a missing girl, and the investigator’s search leads him right to the Scopuli.

    I purchased this book many months ago, and couldn't get past the prologue for some reason. But during a very long rainy month, I decided to take it out again and promised myself to get through the first chapter. Hurray! I'm so glad I did so. This is space opera at it's best.

    In the 20th century Earth sent probes, transmissions, and welcoming messages to the stars. Unfortunately, someone noticed. The Galactics arrived with their battle fleet in 2052. Rather than being exterminated under a barrage of hell-burners, Earth joined their vast Empire. Swearing allegiance to our distant alien overlords wasn't the only requirement for survival. We also had to have something of value to trade, something that neighboring planets would pay their hard-earned credits to buy. As most of the local worlds were too civilized to have a proper army, the only valuable service Earth could provide came in the form of soldiers....

    This is a great new series. I like the characters, the battles, and the believable science. It's a interesting concept, restoring your soldiers back to life after a really tough battle; kind of like virtual battles with feeling. This book is much better than some of his other series. B.V. Larson's writing skill has really developed. Can't wait to read the next one in the series.

    Story

    I started this series earlier this week. I had bought the first book many months ago and just got around to listening to it. I like science fiction, but I haven't really explored a lot of sf military soap opera until now. Evan Currie created a great story with characters that you fall in love with and root for, and he mixes in a lot of interesting science as well. Benjamin Darcie was great too (I'll have to listen to some other books he's narrated), the pace had the right rhythm and I enjoyed listening to him. If you plan to listen to this story, start with number 1 first. This book will stand on it's own but you'll have a better appreciation of what's going on if you listen to the story in series order. Can't wait for the next one.
