Earth has been destroyed, the entire solar system turned to dust by a cataclysmic event known as the Fracture. Now, the last survivors of humanity live on vast arkships drifting through the Cluster, doing what they can to survive in a hostile ever-changing environment. When the arkship Obsidian is attacked, Wynn awakes in an escape pod fleeing from a huge space battle, unable to remember who he is. Hunted by a killer robot, the forces of a rival arkship, and the Church of the Infinite, Wynn must survive long enough to unlock his lost memories, discover who is behind the attack and take his revenge.

I was given this audiobook for free in exchange for a honest review.

I was looking for a new sci fi listen, I listen to a lot of Star Wars/ Star Trek. Arkship Obsidian filled my need for new sci fi. Good characters; plenty of action. Mike Robinson did a great job as well. Production quality excellent.

As if he doesn't have enough to handle between running outlaws out of Cheyenne, keeping his brothers out of trouble, and avenging his father's death, Sheriff Sawyer McCade's meddling mother just dumped a mysterious mail-order bride on his doorstep. One woman can be more trouble than a band of renegades, and while this one has him all stirred up, he'd rather get to the bottom of the story she isn't telling. Rose Parker had it all - until a web of danger and deceit sends her running to Cheyenne posing as a mail-order bride. Escaping the evils of New York seems sensible until she meets the unsuspecting sheriff who didn't ask for her, has no intention of marrying her, and won't rest until he uncovers her secret and sends her back home.

Where does Sawyer's Rose rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I’m don’t usually listen to romances but Sawyer’s Rose is more than a romance. Good plot and twists that I did not see coming.

What other book might you compare Sawyer's Rose to and why?

Sawyer’s Rose reminds me of Louis L’Amour somewhat. Tough but hurting cowboy and an equally tough woman trying to make her way in the West.

Any additional comments?

Narrator was awesome. I don’t think there could be a better voice for a western. Honestly, he reminded me of San Elliott.

Kelly Winters moves to Haven, California looking for a new start after her divorce. What she finds though, is a thousand years of family history that she knew nothing about.
Very good book. I listened to it in one sitting. Maybe would have liked a little bit more but as this is a first book in a series, I’m hoping the next books will be longer. Narration and production were both of high quality.

If you love Jack Reacher...it's time you met The Preacher, the one-eyed ex-priest and Vietnam vet turned professional gambler who wanders the country seeking redemption. The Preacher is playing the highest stakes poker game ever dealt. His opponents are mobsters, arms dealers, and terrorists. The jackpot is an atomic bomb. And if he loses, the entire city of Las Vegas will be dealt the Dead Man’s Hand. It's non-stop action and suspense featuring the most original hero in crime fiction.

Would you listen to The Preacher: Aces and Eights again? Why?

I definitely would. The story is intelligent and action packed.

Which character – as performed by Shawn Compton – was your favorite?

The Preacher . Shawn Compton does a great job with him and all the other characters. I can see the them clearly in my mind.

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

This book is a little king to do that with but , if I had whole day I probably would do it.

Any additional comments?

This is the second book in a series. I haven’t listened to the first one and that’s not a problem. This stands alone. Definitely will go back and listen to the first

It is as scary as it is exciting: this is how most people would describe a paranormal experience. While others encounter it even when they don't want to, others search for the thrill, going so far as visiting places out of the country just so they can feel the suspense. Haunted forests, abandoned ghost towns, creepy creatures, cursed roads, and other paranormal events - all these things happen for a reason. Murder victims manifest themselves perhaps because their justice is still not achieved, or perhaps, they simply were not ready to go.

I was supposed to start college next year, but after being given a ticket to Cairo as a high school graduation present, I skipped the ceremony and jumped on the plane. My name is Mary Fallon. I'm 18 years old, and for as long as I can remember, I've been fascinated by ancient Egypt. I could never have imagined the experiences awaiting me here in the ancient land of the pharaohs, including having my first lucid dream.

This audiobook is interesting. I almost can’t put words to it . It’s not what you would expect and it’s different from just about everything else I’ve listened to. I felt like it was a little slow in the beginning but it gets better . I just had to stick with it a bit. The narration was great.

The plot was good. And it kept me interested but I almost gave up on it because of the narrator. First of all the inflections are all off. Sometimes it’s pretty monotonous and the female voices aren’t great. Also there was at least of couple of stumbles that I caught that should have been fixed in editing.

But Roma Gray is turning me into a fan of the horror. This is the fourth audio of Ms. Gray’s that I have listened to and I have never been disappointed. I always find myself caught up in the characters and what is happening to them . While I’m always wanting more, even with short story such as this, I find myself holding my breath and on the edge of my seat to find out what happens
