  • Illegal: A True Story of Love, Revolution and Crossing Borders

A raw account of a young American abroad grasping for meaning, this pulsating story of violent protests, illegal border crossings, and loss of innocence raises questions about the futility of borders and the irresistible power of nationalism. Illegal tells the true story of love, deception, revolutions, and deportations as it chronicles the trials of John Dennehy. A naïve New Yorker, Dennehy refuses to be part of the feverish nationalism of post 9/11 America. His search for hope takes him to Ecuador, where he falls in love with firebrand Lucia.

John Dennehey shared his experiences and life journey when he decided to leave the U.S. and relocate to Ecuador.  Trying to escape nationalism that the US experienced following 9/11, Dennehey decides he wants to become an activist, and not be confined by borders any longer.  Oddly, his moving to Ecuador requires him to cross borders every 90 days or so and be reapproved for entry, otherwise, he is illegal.  In his naivety, he tosses out the easy way to maintain his VISA only to resort to illegal means to stay with the woman he fell in love with and stay in his new home.

This book deals with the violence, political issues and unfairness between classes, ethnicity and lifestyles of two countries (North and South America).  Dennehey matures and sees the world slightly different with the passage of time and experiences, but not before he becomes an illegal alien, liar, and manipulator.

I found the book to be engaging and interesting. While I knew it was difficult for people to enter the US, I never understood how difficult it is for Americans to immigrate until now. Dennehey writes clearly and with passion.  His skill at wordsmithing is excellent.  He is a visual writer leaving no question as to the emotion he is feeling or his experiences – he writes with such passion.

I did find moments in his journey where I really wanted to smack him on the head and tell him to grow up; i.e. his romance with a married woman … among other things.  However, after finishing the audiobook, I reflected on my own youth and realized, sadly, that while I am older and wiser – I too had experienced “dumb” moments in my youth.  I also wished I had had the drive to strike out on my own and make a difference or at least experienced life in a more complete manner.

The narrator, Joe Passaro provided an excellent performance.  The book and Passaro seemed to become one – as if the journey and life experiences were his and no one else.  His voice reflected the same passion and emotion as the writer.  His youthful voice gave credence to the story that an older voice would not have given.

As I said, I enjoyed the book and would highly recommend it.

Boone Fischer is a divemaster on the Bonaire island.  Living the life, he teaches scuba diving and enjoys the Divers Paradise.  Until one day out on a typical dive he captures a photo of a camouflage sub.  Of course, it is believed to belong to the drug Cartel but what is inside is way more explosive than drugs!  Boone’s world just got tangled up, tossed upside down, and completely out of whack in a terrifying tale that is extremely realistic.  Action packed, the edge of your seat thriller!

The author and narrator, Nick Sullivan is very thorough and provides graphic details in an accurate and engaging style.  Sullivan is a powerful wordsmith which allows the listener to actually visualize the islands and beauty he is describing.  His plot is well executed with no holes, his character development is complete.  Sullivan’s powerful writing makes the story flow.

As the narrator, Sullivan has “personal” insight (as the author) and projects each character and storyline in such a way that makes the listening even more captivating.  He moves the story along with the use of his voice eliciting excitement and wonder.  His voice is strong and resonates.  As a narrator turned writer, Sullivan knows just how to work a nuance thus capturing his audiences attention!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  I am not one for terrorism stories but this one was very well done! This is just the first in what I hope is a long series!

A very short story that sets the stage for what promises to be a strong, well-written sci-fi story.  Dean Cole, the author packs the prequel with action, suspense and the promise of more to come.

The Enigma Wraith, the fourth book in the Enigma series, serves up yet another captivating techno-thriller racing with romance, humor, and possible catastrophe. When an Irish financial institution, a Brazilian hydroelectric plant, a NATO base, and a smart car traveling through the European countryside are each hacked by the same sinister force, the world is introduced to the first glimpse of the potential damage that the Ghost Code can inflict - on both a personal and an industrial level.

The members of R-Group are faced with a crippling “Ghost Code” implemented by cyber pirates Mephisto and Callisto. A ghost code that evades detection and creates chaos and havoc everywhere it goes. Petra, Jacob, and Quip must find a way around the code and destroy it before the world suffers a financial collapse. The two evil cyber terrorists have more than just financial collapse on their mind – they want to break technology!

The R-Group finds one of their own as a victim – Juan – when his plane displays the ghost code; he loses all control waiting for the plane to break apart from its acceleration. A heart-tugging moment is shared before Juan is just gone. The team works together to thwart the evildoers and find the crash site of Juan.

Charles Breakfield and Roxanne Burkey have upped their game. This book not only kept the listener on the edge of their chair but it tugged at their hearts as well. R-Group are the superheroes without the capes and because Breakfield/Burkey have developed the characters solidly, one cannot help but feel the pain and joy of the characters.

I loved the teaser Breakfield and Burkey had at the end, you know the next book is going to be just as wildly intense filled with chaos and more evildoers! At what point do we stop trying to further technology?

Derek Shoales, the narrator for the Enigma series is excellent. He has distinct voices for each character and moves the story further through his energy. He has become the Enigma series to me. He’s perfect. His voice is soothing yet exudes appropriate emotions.

First of all, I want to mention that I decided to listen to this book because I really admire Noffke and Channey's work. I was not familiar with the Kurtherian Gambit series, so I took a bet on this one.

It is an action-packed space opera with likable but also archetypal characters. We have the old hero, now an antihero, and the beautiful and skillful female counterpart. There are many fights, hilarious moments, and a couple of twists that will delight many. Also mentions about some of the characters in the mainKurtherian Gambit series, so this will be a pleasant read for the loyal fans.

From the point of view of a Noffke and Channey's fan, the book is a bit disappointing. It's not that I didn't enjoy it but one of the things I enjoy the most from these two authors are their characters, which are usually quite developed and easy to connect to. This didn't happen for me here, the characters are one-dimensional, and despite their funny dialogs, I didn't much care for them.

Chris Abernathy's narration was also okay. His character interpretations were really good but his voice range quite limited. His female voices were not great and sounded like the male characters, moreover, the male characters sounded all quite similar, which caused me some troubles to follow some dialogs. The audio production had no issues.

All in all it was an okay book, light and unpretentious, enjoyable but forgettable.

Jane Doe finds herself in yet another mess in Michigan!  Seems she can’t take a step in the woods without stepping right in it!  Enjoying a picnic with Emma, Jane encounters two monster hunters, a religious fanatic who wants to be the world’s strongest wizard and discovers a mass grave!

Jane finds herself facing down yet another entity as well as figuring out how to live now that mom and dad are in witness protection! Oh, then there’s the little thing between her, agent “hottie” Alex and “luscious” Lucien!  Male testosterone is in full “charge ahead” mode leaving one anticipating a knock down drag out between the two brothers.

C.T. Phipps and Michael Suttku are excellent storytellers utilizing snark, whimsical and humorous writing and dialog styles to tell the story of young Jane Doe.   Skilled in puns, the authors cleverly utilize their talent to draw the audience in and make them laugh.  This is a fun, easy read with lots of laughable moments.  I enjoy this series, it has everything – supernatural, mystery, romance, clever writing and … well, it’s just fun!  Of course, there are a lot of folks who think I am nuts given my frequent outbursts of laughter and such while in public with a Bluetooth headphone in!  My one question – when’s the next one????

The narrator, Arielle DeLisle performed the audiobook expertly.  She brought the book to life with her talent and enthusiasm.  She is Jane Doe!!

There were no issues with the production or quality of this book.   I highly recommend this series if you like light, fun reading with mystery and supernatural creatures!

For decades, American administrations have forced our military to be neutered in many respects - hampered by restrained rules of engagement, passed in strength by Russia and China, and tested by rogue nations like North Korea and Iran. As a result, nuclear Armageddon hangs over us like a mighty sword. Military analysts agree that the United States can't start World War III. Why? We might lose.

Story

Axis of Evil written by Bobby Akart and narrated by Sean Runnette is the first of a new Lone Star book series. Mr. Akart has an aggressive release schedule for these audiobooks so the listeners will not have to wait if they get hooked by the first in the series. The audiobooks are set to come out one a month. This is the third series I have heard from Mr. Akart and in his six book series, he follows a formula that has led to his success. The first book is an introduction to the characters, world building, creating tension, and cliffhanger.

This book is more political thriller than post-apocalyptic. The story is really good and follows the Armstrong family in Texas. Set in a future America where the elected president dies early in his first term. The Vice President is a woman who balanced the ticket and is progressive and nonmilitaristic. Kim Jong-un is still running North Korea and they are getting weapons from Iran. World tensions are at an all-time high. The US Secretary of Defense cannot get the new president to see reality to stop North Korea's nuclear launches over Japan. So the Deep State lives again and has plans to deal with the threat.

The Armstrong family has a proud history of service in Law Enforcement in the Texas Rangers. Two of the adult children are in the military with one dying in the line of duty. The other three are their Rodeo Kids. The Armstrong ranch  and are preppers. They know that the world is an unstable place and that the future is never certain. They also know that Texas is the only state with its own power grid separate from the national grid.  The state of Texas is capable of being self-sustaining just like the Armstrong ranch currently is self-sustaining.  Strong and independent free of debt. A place for the family and its ranch hands should anything ever happen to the country.

Attention Holding

The story does a really great job of holding the listener's attention through the entire audiobook if you are a fan of this genre and author. The book does involve character introduction and world building. It holds your attention through the whole audiobook. I found the story and characters interesting and enjoyable. The events do a good job of mirroring real world events to create plenty of dramatic tension to lend an air of reality for the listener.

Narration and Production Quality

Sean Runnette provides the narration for this audiobook. Mr. Runnette does a good job with this audiobook. He provides an excellent performance for the wide variety of characters in this audiobook. This is the first time I have heard a performance from Mr. Runnette but I look forward to hearing more from him in the future. Audible Studio's produced this audiobook. The production quality was excellent as one would expect from Audible.

With her new internship, Min enters the scene of a major breakthrough in quantum computing: the virtual world of Spheria, home to sentient inhabitants. As these Polyans explore their habitat, the research team has a unique opportunity to observe their society's development. Anthropology and artificial intelligence will never be the same. But Min soon uncovers evidence of a sinister secret. As overseers of a new species, some on the team can't resist the temptation to play God. Others are tempted by the vast computing power behind Spheria and want to turn its quantum engine towards their own ends. If Min knows too much, what seems like the opportunity of a lifetime might just end it prematurely. Like the Polyans, though, she might find the lure of new knowledge too strong to resist.

Let me start this review by saying that Cody Leet (author) and James Highfield (narrator) took me on a quite unexpected and enjoyable journey into a new and exciting world called “Spheria”.  The book is a technology thriller containing all the expected mystery, intrigue, and suspense, but it also included a uniquely different and unusual virtual world simulation where creatures come together into a clan all having many of the same goals and desires we have.  The world from the inside looks much like our own as creatures live, die, and breed.  They all face trials and tribulations along with love and even some romance.  Be warned that there are even a few places that are quite emotional.  This virtual world has set laws and rules defined by its creators which the participants create their own lore around them and passing it down to future generations.  Like with the virtual world, this book grows on you the deeper you go down the rabbit hole.  Even though the book has its flaws, the story is engaging and enjoyable enough that they do not matter.  I was entertained much of the way and that really is what a book like this is intended to do; goal accomplished.

For me, both the physical and virtual worlds were detailed and for the most part colorful.  I felt the main characters in the physical world could have been a bit more three-dimensional, but the virtual characters (Polyans) often made up for it.  I enjoyed the back story of Max and his desire of coding and gaming in what is today considered retro technology, and I want to thank the author for making me feel both nostalgic and old at the same time.  We are given a brief understanding of quantum computing and the reasons this technology has been so evasive to harness.  With a new way of thinking, our main character is able to come up with a way of controlling this powerful technology and it comes as no surprise that the military sees this new tool as the next best mean of winning at war.  No longer is war about who has superior firepower as much as it is about who has superior processing power.  The book does a decent job of switching between these two very different worlds, yet at the beginning I found things confusing until I realized this switching occurred during each new chapter.  I also liked the author’s reference to the Game of Life and how Spheria has become that in our modern quantum time.

I thought the author did a good job of creating a very different world than ours along with quite different creatures inhabiting it.  It was not your typical human-like creatures, but instead more like a blending of spiders and crabs having different leg counts.  Those with more legs were seen as being the more powerful and respected ones.  These creatures also face similar struggles as any explorer or founders of a new world would.  They have to find food, shelter, and work together to survive.  As I continued listening, the book reminded me of the movie “The 13th Floor” when it comes to virtual world simulations and their complexity.  I could see an entire series written just about the world of Spheria and the creatures who live there.  The author also threw in some references to things I enjoy like: Stuff You Should Know (Shoutout to Chuck and Josh), Gizmodo, and the Wow signal.  Even though the hacking components of the story were a bit farfetched, they seemed to fit the rest of the book.  If I had to call out a weakness, I would say the book at times was somewhat predictable and had many of the standard techno-thriller tropes such as the dark and mysterious military, the break between worlds often kept the book engaging and light-hearted.  On a personal side note, I could have done without the introductory chapter quotes, but that is really a preference.

James Highfield did a very good job narrating the book.  I will say that the virtual world characters took some getting used to and I would have preferred to have less sound effects added to their voices, but it grows on you over time.  The books pacing, and inflection were decent for a relatively new narrator; as the time of this review.  I do not recall any issues with the audio nor were there any audio inconstancies.  The audiobook quality was professional, and the narrator’s voice was clear and rich.

For parents and younger readers.  The book has some light romance and a few areas where profanity is used.  The book additionally has a few areas were sexual humor is used along with a few negative religious overtones.  There are some quite graphic and violent scenes along with a story thread around suicide which may not be appropriate for younger audiences.

In summary, I found the book enjoyable and predictable at times.  The physical world seemed a little too flat for my liking, but again this was often offset by the fun virtual world.  There were times when I thought things were going to go one direction and the author took me another, there were also a few twists and turns along the way.  I liked that the book was self-contained, yet the author does leave a few open ends that could point to future books taking place in this world.  As I stated earlier, It would be interesting to have a book devoted just to the backstory and lore involving the virtual colony world.  I will have to keep my eyes and ears open.

Nara is a small child, playing in the grass blowing on dandelions when she is quickly and silently abducted from the orphanage. The nun turns a blind eye and thus begins the adventure and life of Nara. Nara has secrets she must keep, a scar that she keeps hidden and a curiosity that will end in more pain than she could ever expect. Nara has compassion, an abundance of love and eagerness to help those she has known all her life. Taking her secret magic, she tries to help the townsfolk of Dimmitt only to find herself, her “adoptive father” Bilo and her friend, Michael on the run for their lives.

Her act of kindness sets them on a path that is deadlier than they are prepared, they forge friendships and lose friends along the way – but ultimately, Nara must face the biggest threat she has ever encountered. She must defeat him or die trying to save her friends.

An exciting story that is well developed and executed perfectly. The characters were well developed with a keen insight into their personalities from vivid imagery and their actions. Willson is a master wordsmith, creating scenes that leave listeners both emotionally and physically on the edge of their chairs.

The narrator, Tanya Eby, performed the audiobook excellently with the appropriate emotion the engaging the audience to keep listening. I found her voice soothing and she skillfully moved the book forward enthralling the listeners.

I enjoyed this book immensely and am looking forward to the next in the series. I cannot help but wonder where Willson will go with book 2! Lots of action and more gut-wrenching suspense I suspect!

Lee Mountford built the suspense, horror and mind-numbing terror expertly.  When listening to the book and one begins to catch glimpses out of the corner of one's eye of something moving but nothing there … you know it’s truly a work of art!

Hannibal Hills performed the voices with skill.  His performance left one shuddering to one’s core when the demonic evil spoke.   He was spectacular!  His talent carried the terror beyond the pages and gave them a voice.
