Captain Telryn “Trip” Yert is on the most important mission of his life. Accompanied by Captain Kaika, the sentient soulblade Jaxi, and Rysha Ravenwood - the noble-born scholar and officer he definitely shouldn’t be developing feelings for - he must find a way to close a portal that’s allowing more and more dragons into the world. If he fails, all of humanity could fall to the powerful creatures. As if that wasn’t enough to worry about, the secret Trip has spent his whole life hiding, that he can draw upon magical power, is on the verge of being discovered.
Trip's and Rysha's romance are beginning to form. Trip's secret is also being revealed and he will have to find out who his father is. His team have also to get to know him better. A very interesting storyline and I am waiting anxiously for the next book to be published.
Frank and Sarah Malloy are enjoying married life and looking to make their family official by adopting Catherine, the child Sarah rescued and has been raising as her daughter. The newlyweds soon discover Parnell Vaughn, an actor and Catherine's legal father, is looking to fatten his pockets by insisting on a financial settlement to relinquish his parental rights. Even though exchanging money for a child is illegal, Frank and Sarah's love for Catherine drives them to take a chance. When Frank returns with the money and finds Vaughn beaten to death, all evidence points to Frank as the culprit.
Very interesting mystery, Frank And Sarah once again solved a murder. The law during this period is rather strict and Victoria Thompson described the difficulties faced by people who want to adopt children very well. Suzanne Toren narrated/performed all the different characters and brought the story to life. A good continuation of the series.
Renegade Star: Publisher's Pack 2 contains books 3 and 4 of the Renegade Star series. Renegade Moon, Book 3. A Renegade never surrenders. After evading both the Union and the Sarkonian Empire, Jace and the crew are off in search of Earth. With the help of Titan, their new base of operations, Jace believes they might just have a chance. That is, if they can outrun the two armies at their backs, and somehow manage to survive a galaxy that wants them dead. Not exactly a walk in the park. But no one ever said being a Renegade was easy.
Very exciting and lots of action with the military and aliens from the Galaxy. Captain Jace Hughes and hIs crew fought hard to outwit their enemies. Luke Daniels was absolutely wonderful in his narration/performance. Very well written by JN Chaney. I hope the continuation will be published soon.

Ruthless bankers are breathing down their necks, vengeful warlords are promising to pursue them across the galaxy, and now a mysterious new client wants Rade and his Argonauts to escort her to a frontier planet. Problem is, the new client won't reveal her cargo. It's probably something illegal. Well, Rade needs the money, so a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do. They arrive to find the frontier colony strangely deserted. When the shit hits the fan and the Argonauts face a possible alien infestation, it's time to pull out the big guns.
Very good. Race and his team had to hunt for an alien in space. Lots of action and that characters are all so interesting. Well written and Luke Daniels as always brought the story to life with his awesome performance. Worth a credit.
Telryn "Trip" Yert has always been a little odd, with hunches that are too accurate to explain. Magic is feared and forbidden in Iskandia, so he's struggled his whole life to hide his eccentricities. As a boy, he was forced to watch his mother's execution. Her crime? Witchcraft. Understandably, Trip wants nothing to do with the power that lurks within him, always threatening to reveal itself. Instead, he dedicates himself to serving as an officer in the king's army, to battling pirates and imperial conquerors. He longs to become a soldier as respected and renowned as General Zirkander.
Excellent, most enjoyable. It's s continuation of the Dragon Blood series and I love it that Ridges Zirkander, the hero and his wife, Sardelle of the previous series are mentioned. The Hong protagonist "Trips" Yurt and his adventures in this new series is fantastic. I am looking forward to the growing romance and his realizing his full potential in magic. The dragons are very awesome too. I am glad that Bk 2 is out now which is really good. Thank you Audible.
A killer walks among the rich and powerful. Who can the Magebreakers trust? Someone is killing the non-magical members of Senate houses - those who might one day be named Protector of the Realm. And that same someone is leaving behind messages for the Magebreakers beside symbols of the shadowy organization known as the Knights of the Emperor. Under suspicion from the constabulary, Tane and Kadka are drawn into the investigation to prove their innocence. What they find is that Audish politics are as dangerous as any Porthaven back alley.
Entertaining. I love the storyline. Tane and Kadka make a good team. There are action and intrigues. An interesting plot. I hope there will be more adventures to come for the magebreakers.
Jace Hughes is a Renegade. That means taking almost any job that comes his way, no matter the situation. So long as he can keep his ship floating, he's free to live the life he wants. But that all changes when he meets Abigail Pryar, a nun looking for safe passage out of the system. Too bad there's something off about the cargo she's carrying. Jace knows he shouldn't ask too many questions, but when strange sounds start coming from inside the large, metal box, he can't help but check it out. Big mistake. To make matters worse, he's being pursued by unknown ships - who want that cargo.
Most enjoyable. A good space opera series. Jace Hughes is a very dynamic character. The way he overcome obstacles is fantastic and a great laugh. Luke Daniels, of course brought all the individual characters to life with his superb performance/narration. The plot is excellent and the enemies were challenging. Very well written and I am glad I got the boxed set of the first two books. I am looking forward to the next boxed set of books 3 and 4. Well worth the credit. Thank you Audible for the boxed sets.

In a world of elves and dwarves and sprites and mages, Tane Carver is a human with no gift but his wits. Which, to be fair, did get him into the world's most prestigious university of magical technology. For a while. Until his lack of magic was discovered. And then it all came crashing down. But when a student is murdered on campus behind unbreakable wards, Tane gets a second chance. Solving an impossible crime should be easy for the man who fooled the university's best mages for years. Except he's not counting on the head constable being an old flame who isn't so fond of him anymore.
Good start to a new series. Tane Carver is an interesting protagonist. He has courage and determination to prove that a human/being with no magic are not flawed. When there is a murder at the university campus, he and his "partner", Kadka helped to catch the murderer. A very action packed adventure. Will continue the next book. The narrator, Travis Baldree did a good job with all the different voices for both male and female.
Cèsar Hawke works for the Office of Preternatural Affairs, and until now, his detective work has been a secret to the nation. But a Senator has been publicly assassinated in Washington DC…by a demon. Now America knows that the preternatural are real. Everyone knows it's real. The doomsday clock is ticking. A change is coming. And if Cèsar doesn't stop the Apple cult from sating their bitter thirst for power, then all Americans will end up fodder to feed hungry angels.
Enjoyable. Plenty of action and intrigues. Cesar is an interesting protagonist. We get to know more of his past and his relationship with his grandfather and sister. He finally find his love and I hope there will more of their romance in future books of this series.
Major Voria stands ready to accept the cost for her actions at Marid. Stripped of command and resources, Voria must find a ship and rally a crew. Somewhere within the Umbral Depths lays a hidden world, a world that the dead god, Marid, intended her to find. Aran faces a choice. Halt his war mage training and, in the process, give up clues to his past, or abandon Voria. Aran sacrifices everything to follow Voria on a suicidal quest into the one place where even gods fear to tread.
Most enjoyable. Major Voria and Aran and the rest of their team head in the Umbral World to learn the truth. Lots of action and revelation. Aran learns more about his past. Exciting adventure. Looking forward to the next book ASAP. THE
