    Story
    "Story was good and sidestory a bit disturbing"
    Would you listen to Kildar again? Why?

    No, once was enough


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, the plot was good and quick paced.


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

    The Narration was top notch. Really good when you can easily tell one character from another and the accents were pretty good as well!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The story was good. The pace was good. What John Ringo's fascination with grown men screwing children was as usual the low part of the book for me. He can definitely write but I would have this guy on my neighborhood watch list for sure. How he thinks that adds to the books I have no idea. It's not enough that his character has issues with women of a more consenting age but he has to take it that one step further every time. If the base story and action were not so good I would have dumped this writer by now. In my opinion the writer seems like a scumbag that just so happens can write.

    Story
    "Love Ringo...but could do w/o all the sexual abuse"
    What would have made Kildar better?

    Seriously John, love your books, but you went way overboard here. I didn't expect the Ghost to be a choir boy but really John?. I felt dirty and needed a shower after this one. The side story with all the sex with teens and the rationalization of it was way too much, it felt like reading a print out of a Roman Polanski wet dream. If US special forces heroes were really like this I would be seriously disappointed.


    If you’ve listened to books by John Ringo before, how does this one compare?

    If you can get past all the rapey parts the main story line is good. The narrator is awesome. Looking for to Strands of Sorrow, but i am done with this series.


    Which character – as performed by Jeremy Arthur – was your favorite?

    He is great at them all.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The main story was interesting especially the little bit of historical fiction woven in.


    Any additional comments?

    Pass on this one unless you want a bunch of soft-porn teen sexual abuse however rationalized.

    Story
    "much less graphic sex scenes in this one"

    The first book had a graphic sex and rape scene in it and although the main character does some pretty bad things and thinks bad things also its not that bad, this one has a little scene about S&M and some young girls all over 18 maybe over 21 not sure, but again like the first book just skip this because the story is great.

    Mike cant seem to get a brake here and every time he gets into the shit as it were he comes out pretty badly hurt but has lots of money to show for it, this time he decided to take a trip into the mountains and he ends up buying the whole place and spending some money to outfit a militia for his protection.

    This whole series goes pretty well other than the graphic sex and rape scenes but those are almost gone by the 3rd book, although they are replaced with normal sex scenes not to much graphic much different though.

    Again if you just skip over the graphic sex/rape scenes you should really like this whole series

    Story
    "Hero services Georgia ( the state and the country)"

    Our hero Services targets and Georgia, the state and the country.
    It's good to know our tax dollars are spent on something while fighting terrorists.
    Be careful listening to this while in a drive through.

    Story
    "Great Read...."
    What did you like most about Kildar?

    Paladin of Shadows is turning out to be fantastic series and a must read for any John Ringo fans.

    After listening to Ghost and Kildar; I have just purchased the rest of the series. The books follow on like in the Legacy of the Aldenata series.

    Great fun, fast paced action with an epic story line but thought provoking as well, with interesting details about different styles of military force organisation, Special Forces tactics and strategy, geopolitics and terrorism, espionage, cutting edge military technologies, even ancient warrior history and beer brewing…!

    While not hard Science fiction when compared to his later books, this series introduces many of the themes and big ideas that he develops in latter books like the Troy Rising series and in the Last Centurion, also passing references to the ideas of the great Robert A Heinlein.

    Military and Adventure SF fans will certainly enjoy this as will all fans of more traditional military authors like Chris Ryan and Andy McNab, Tom Clancy and Patrick Robinson also those who enjoy Adventure and Thriller writers like Wilbur Smith, Larry Bond, Stephen Coonts, Dale Brown, Matthew Reilly.
