    "An entertaining read."
    Any additional comments?

    An intriguing and entertaining read.

    When Jet is at his grandfathers funeral, a strange man hands him an envelope and a key. He finds clues that lead him to something that he puts down to being a compass because it seems to be showing him the way to somewhere. He decides to follow it and from that moment on, his life is changed forever!! It's hard to say much more about the plot without spoiling something so I'll get straight to my thoughts.

    Character wise: I loved Jet. He is a typical boy until he finds the glove, but even after finding it and discovering what it can do, he stays down to earth and stays himself. I also loved the fact that he uses his friends to help him. He knows he can't do it all himself so enrolls some of his friends. He was easily relatable and likable.

    Plot wise: This has lots of layers. You think it's just a simple tale but it's not. It's not only Jet's tale but it's a story of his grandfather, his father and even people he doesn't know. He threw in a side story of missing kids that intertwine with the main story and I loved how the author made the kids heroes for being brave and doing whats right. It's fast paced, intriguing and captivating and I enjoyed everything about it.

    Audio wise: The narrator did an amazing job with this book. He breathed life int the characters and made the story more enjoyable. You could easily distinguish the characters even though he didn't change his tone much throughout. It was a subtle change which I liked.

    In all, this was a pleasant and quick listen. I was surprised how much I loved the story. The author has created an intriguing first book and since it's a debut, I was well impressed. I can't wait to see where the author takes the story and characters and am looking forward to book 2.

    Story
    "Fun, interesting and ready for book 2"
    What made the experience of listening to Nebulous the most enjoyable?

    The story was well written but Greenley's narration helped make the characters easy to follow and get into. This is how I read to my kids when they were little except he never misses a beat. The pacing is good, characters are given appropriate/unique voices and Ray's voice is butter smooth the whole way in.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nebulous?

    When Jet first showed his glove to Kale... lots of great scenes but given what had just happened the day before it was a powerful scene showing empathy and kindness to someone we didn't expect.


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

    No, this was my first title read by Ray Greenley but I will certainly seek out others!


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

    I must admit to shedding a tear at the end when the kids they rescued were reunited with their parents. Then, this emotion quickly changed to despair realizing that book 2 was not yet released and it was over.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait to listen to this again with my kids... they are really picky when it comes to the quality of narration and I know Ray Greenley will not disappoint :) Very interested in the next book and it better not change Narrator or voices as it ruins the experience :)

    "A magical adventure!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it is a very imaginative and creative book that makes one think!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nebulous?

    When the puppy was involved and shared her thought process...


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The ending as it ends happily!


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

    I could not sit still for that long, so no. However, I loved the story and found myself wanting to listen to it longer than I thought I would.


    Any additional comments?

    Very creative, imaginative story that reminded me of Harry Potter and The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Very good read about an adventure out of this world! Will be looking for the next one!

    Story
    "Fantasy and Adventure-Filled"
    Where does Nebulous rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    A gripping young adult adventure novel. I love how the author deftly weaves the adventure and relationship of Jet and Travis throughout, an adventure filled with magical powers and fantastical imaginings. The best part of the book is that it has wide appeal. It can be read by younger audiences as well as adults, and has a sustained intrigue (sparked by the mysterious letter from Jet's grandpa). Recommended due to its strength as a cohesive, compelling read.

    "Nebulous, a great story for the YA audience."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    What praise can I give Nebulous? It is this… Tristan, my 12 year old son, listened intently to the book, and when he was done, he started over again. He loved it and wants more. He eagerly awaits the next book in the series. For me, Nebulous was “Stand by me” meets “ET” with some super hero gadgetry thrown in. The story explores family and friendship, as well as the innate desire to do good, especially among young boys just starting to come into their own. It is a sci-fi adventure and a mystery perfectly suited toward the YA audience.

    I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

    Tristan’s review:
    “Great story I loved it! Some things that I liked
    about it was how the story focused on boys
    about my age going to save kids from a secret
    organization of people. I liked that because my
    age group of boys generally likes the idea of going on an adventure
    and saving people, which perfectly makes this story a hit for the YA.

    Another part of the audiobook that was also great was the actual narration.
    The reason I thought the narration was so good was because you could
    easily tell which character was talking even before that character’s name was announced.
    That’s a good attribute because I’m sure making up voices for all those characters is challenging but rewarding in many ways.

    In conclusion these are the reasons I liked the story so much.”

    I love little Jet...he was serious about rescuing that little girl...and than when he found out it was a bunch of kids...he was determined to save as many as possible! I liked when the little ones were returned to there parents...I know they were so relieved...this is a just a wonderful story!

    ***I was given a free copy of this book for an honest review***

    I loved this little book, and cant wait to hear more about Jet and his little group of friends...and more about MIlo...This is basically a story about a younger teen boy Named Jet that has lost his Dad, and then Grandpa...and discovers some very interesting things going on that are other worldly and all tie to his Gpa..There is a magic glove, and some interesting ways of communication and a space ship...throw in some tele-porting and ..a helpful alien computer/guardian..oh and I cant forget a group of teen boy heroes and this makes for one interesting book that is suitable for all ages!!! Will totally continue this series! :)

    Nebulous is a great read for any family member! Jethro Black,Jet to his friends and anyone else who will listen,is given a key at his grandfathers funeral.What he finds will open worlds and may actually bring him closer to his father,who died three years earlier.There is suspense,mystery,humor and a bit of love tossed into this YA adventure.
    Ray Greenley does a wonderful job with narration.
