    "Good ending to the trilogy"
    Would you listen to A Rose Grows in Weeds again? Why?

    Yes. I enjoyed all three books and would listen to them again. They are what I would call light sci-fi. A feel good series that doesn't have to many plots within plots within plots. An easy listen. I know others said they were not very realistic in the events that happen, but I still enjoyed all three books.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Rose Grows in Weeds?

    The ending, but I don't want to give it away.


    Which character – as performed by Liam Owen – was your favorite?

    Liam did a great job with the alien voices so you still knew who was speaking.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Rose told about who she was going to marry.


    Any additional comments?

    A fun listen for all three books. Finished all three in about a week. Didn't want to stop listening. Good thing I had to spend 8 hours in the car in two days.

    "Really Good Fun!!"

    This series, which is still in my opinion very light space opera, keeps improving as it keeps going- this rather su*k* for me as this seems to be winding up. Perhaps I will have another series to look forward to, I didn't yet stop and look back at the publication date or check for other works! That should say it all about the engrossing nature of these books really!

    "Maybe it's just me, BUT......."
    Would you try another book from Saxon Andrew and/or Liam Owen?

    The first book in this series was very, very good for my tastes. Book two was OK. With this book however, the author has fallen into a deep rut that not only he, but other authors and screenwriters make the mistake in trudging through. They have a great book. He now thinks, I have their attention so lets do some social and political brainwashing. A small amount of "if we just talk, we can all get along with each other" goes a long way. Also, I like special powers and abilities, but making things too easy for the good guys make for a boring story. Make the good guys struggle. Don't let them predictably and easily overwhelm the villians each and every time. Then, the villians see the errors of their ways and suddenly want to "all get along and live happily ever after". I want to be entertained, not indoctrinated. If I wanted politcal correctness, I'd go back to watching television. I would not try another book from Saxon Andrew.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I love Space Operas. I'll try and find another author with an original idea to imagine.


    Have you listened to any of Liam Owen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've not heard any of his other performances.


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

    I loved the characters, but have no challenges for them makes them boring Space Gods!


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe it's just a coincidence. I have read several of Audibles books from different authors. So far, three different Space Operas I've started in as many weeks have been similar stories, similar characters with the boring Godlike powers. It's almost like the same person is writing them all.

    "Another 5 star book!"

    It is rare for a Sci-fi book to make you smile, but you will.
    Huge space battles, even though the size of the fleets are a bit over the top.
    It's nice that Earth isn't getting there ass kick as most Sci-fi battles do.
    Very nice ending to the book...Sort of : An everyone lives happly ever after...lol
    It is a book very hard to stop listening to.
    The 4th book is called Tommy and seems to follow more action.
    So far at least a 5 star+
    A must listen!

    "Found another Good Series"

    The storey is alright, it is along the same lines of many similar books, war and then everyone making up with each other and coming together to fight an even more wicked foe,to quote the old saying "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" I will carry on with the rest of the authors books when they availible.
