    Story
    "Excellent Extension of the GFL Series"
    What did you love best about The Rider?

    The cameos from GFL characters such as John Tweedy and Gredock were a blast. Poughkeepsie Pete really comes to life in this book too. And, there are dinosaurs.


    What other book might you compare The Rider to and why?

    The obvious comparisons are to Mr. Sigler's other works--so many now that he appropriately calls it the expanding collection his Siglerverse.


    What does Scott Sigler bring to the story that you wouldnโ€™t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr. Sigler uses now uses voice actors such as Phil Gigante for some of his newer novels, but the GFL collection is and always will be recorded by Scott Sigler himself. The voices he uses for John Tweedy, Gredock, and other characters are as much part of the story as the words.


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

    I listened to this book in a minimal number of sessions. Once the earbuds went in, I wanted to stay with the story until life forced an interruption.


    Any additional comments?

    Bravo! Now hurry up and release The Reef and the potentially last book of the GFL series.

    "amazing! one of the FDO'S best ones yet."

    I loved this novella. Especially with the cross over of key characters from the GFL series. Absolutely worth the time.

    "Another top tier story from Scott Sigler"

    Can certainly stand on its own but perfectly compliments the major GFL series. Epic Dino fighting with a great ploy makes for an awesome 9+ hours of listening. Thanks FDO!

    "Dino-rific"

    Another great story from the mind of Sigler. if you're a fan of the GFL you won't be disappointed. it's as exciting as riding a rapture on top of a T-Rex ^_^

    Story
    "He's done it again!!"

    Another classic for the gfl. This book gives you an amazing look at a side sport from such an amazingly big and open galaxy. For the full experience you should definitely just to a marathon of Scott's gfl series and listen to this book after you're through the Dino match at the beginning of the All pro. Book 3 ๐Ÿ˜ this is an amazing super fun really imaginative book. Looking forward too the last book in the gfl so I can binge listen from start to finish! Awesome job Scott!!! And the accents where also entertaining. As an attendee of sigler fest I got a kick out of them ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ can't wait for more!

    "combat dinosaurs. nuff said"

    I am a fan of the g.f.l. universe this story takes place in. However, you can enjoy this story if you have never been exposed to the g.f.l. It is a fun stand alone tale. The action is well done. I hope this is not the last time we hear of Pete or Bess.
