    "Love the whole of this series."

    Not my usual genre as I prefer military. Bought the first of these not knowing it was set on an alternate world.

    Got sucked into the story half way through the first book. Have listened to all 8 now and can;t wait for the next one!

    Story
    "Win, or perish."
    Would you listen to Firestorm again? Why?

    The story once again heats up dramatically as we see the strife between the tyrannical Holy Dominion which spans the west coast of the Americas in this alternate Earth as it seeks to purify the 'heretics' of the New Britain Empire and their newly forged allies of Matthew Reddy and crew.
    Meanwhile the out of sight Grik have new weapons at hand thanks to the their own Japanese alliance.

    "Another link in a good chain of a story"
    Where does Firestorm rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    It's entertaining. I find myself not wanting to stop listening when life invades my listening. It keeps me wanting to hear more.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Taylor Anderson? Why or why not?

    Yes. His stories keep my interest. It doesn't always go as I thought it would.


    What about William Dufris???s performance did you like?

    He's very good. You forget you are listening to a story. He really brings it alive.


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

    It kept me wanting more. A smile or 2 might have escaped during the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I understand the need to recap in every book, but it gets exhausting. i would prefer that the author spent more time telling the current story and less time retelling the previous books.

    Story
    "Love Taylor's Books!"

    I would have given this 5 stars across the board as I love this series and the author ( a nice fellow, BTW, I have exchanged email with him regarding e-book availability).

    Maybe it is just me, but I always find it distracting when a book that contains both male and female characters has only a male or only a female narrator. It tends to take one out of the story and therefore impacts negatively on the book.

    For some books (mostly non-fiction) where there are no real characters, it does not matter what the sex of the narrator is, as long as they are good, but for most fiction both a male and a female narrator are needed. I know it costs more and I, for one, would be willing to pay more!

    So I may buy the next book in the series in eBook form unless the narration is properly split.

    "Loved Previous Books"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I don't know what happened but this book completely lost its way. Their is absolutely no plot or organized story anymore. Its just a bunch of micro stories that don't fit together. I was confused thru the whole thing.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Taylor Anderson again?

    Yes

    What did you like best about this story?

    Building to a climatic event. The characters have matured in the writing as the series has gone on. The story line is cleaner even with the different fronts and stories contained within the overal book.

    Tired story line, why did I listen I keep asking myself. I guess the first 3 in the series kept me in up to this point but never again.

    Story
    "Another Winner for Taylor Anderson"
    What made the experience of listening to Firestorm the most enjoyable?

    Book 6 in the series and just as engrossing as the first. So descriptive and well written it draws the "reader" into the story and you feel part of it. You feel the pain of us walker and her crew. The absolute size of the homes and territories. Like home but different.The narration is spot on William Dufris' is so good at creating the different voices of all the characters


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    When do we get books 7 & 8

    "where is the rest of the series?"
    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried with anger when I found out that no 6 was not the last book; see comments below


    Any additional comments?

    I assumed that no 6 Firestorm was the last book in the series, but it is not. Research shows four more titles. I rang audible and they have no knowledge of these future titles and if and when they might have them. This is very annoying, as I would not have wasted my money if I had known I could not get the whole series. Cracking story buy it looks like Audible has dropped the ball, VERY UNPROFESSIONAL, NOT IMPRESSED!

    Story
    "Epic in the true sense"
    Would you listen to Firestorm again? Why?

    Having just made it to the end of the six book saga I doubt that I will listen to them again any time soon. I enjoyed the books a lot but they're not a classic re-read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters are well fleshed out and the performance by William Dufris was pitched just right for me. A slight flaw was his attempt at an Australian accent for one of the main characters, it jarred a little every time, but the rest were excellent. The author's technical understanding of historic naval warfare was used to great effect and his vision of an alternate world is very believable..


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

    I became quite involve in the story lines of the books and listened to them in series with no breaks. I could imagine losing track of some of the characters if other books were interspersed.


    Any additional comments?

    Very much worth a listen but make sure they are in the right order.
