Rudi Mackenzie has journeyed far across the land that was once the United States of America, hoping to find the source of the world-altering event that has come to be known as the Change. His final destination is Nantucket, an island overrun with forest, inhabited by a mere two hundred people who claim to have been transported there from out of time.
I started reading this series and was glad to find it in an audible format. Love the story as I started reading from the first book. A great dynasty read.
No one wanted another war. Thomas Theisman didn't. Not after risking his life to overthrow the Committee of Public Safety's reign of terror and restore the Republic of Haven's ancient Constitution. Baron High Ridge didn't. The Prime Minister of Manticore was perfectly happy with the war he had. No one was shooting anyone else at the moment, and his government could continue to milk all those "hostilities only" tax measures for their own partisan projects.
A total bore. Found it a real boring narration. I don't remember the books being so boring as I have read a number in the series.

Richard K. Morgan has received widespread praise for his astounding 25th-century novels featuring Takeshi Kovacs, and has established a growing legion of fans. Mixing classic noir sensibilities with a searing futuristic vision of an age when death is nearly meaningless, Morgan returns to his saga of betrayal, mystery, and revenge, as Takeshi Kovacs, in one fatal moment, joins forces with a mysterious woman who may have the power to shatter Harlan's World forever.
Really enjoyed the discriptiveness of the environment they were in at differant times. That helped me to picture where they were at while listening. It is fun to be able to immerse oneself into a narration to the point you can hear the lazer's, the explosions, and all the eliments that are incorperated to make the make believe real. that is tough with a narration. The narrator did a good job bringing this story to life.
