Jan Reyna is a murder squad detective, British by adoption and choice, Faroese by birth and history. Called back to the remote Danish Faroe Islands when his father suffers a paralysing stroke, Reyna is forced to reexamine his decades-long rejection of the past and of his father in particular. But in this now-foreign country, whose language and customs he no longer understands, Reyna is also drawn into a rare Faroese murder case.
It was a average murder mystery. Quite slow maybe because it is first in series. Narration just average, not bad but not wonderful either. All in all just average
The Ibarra Nation holds Roland prisoner. The armor soldier’s fate lies in the hands of the inhuman Stacey Ibarra. Roland will face the truth behind the Ibarra rebellion and decide if his loyalties are to Earth or his ideals. While the Iron Dragoons recover from their last battle, dark forces are at work. Gideon is called as a witness to New Bastion, where the treaty that opened the stars to humanity may force all-out war with the Ibarras or turn the rest of the galaxy against Earth.
This book now ties together the two series with the Ibarras back in the thick of it. Good continuation of both series. Great narration
Having successfully repelled the Resistance incursion into the Sol system, Terran Fleet Command must now deal with the far-flung worlds of the Sajeth Collective, which sponsored the attack. Task forces are dispatched to Damara and Lesheera to begin the first human blockades of entire planets. With the only ships fast enough to quickly bring the fight to the enemy's doorstep, TFC must do so alone, leaving only minimal forces behind to safeguard the Earth.
Ok continuation of story but more like a television episode. Doesn’t really go anywhere or reach any climax or conclusions
On the edge of the galaxy, a diplomatic mission to an alien planet takes a turn when the Legionnaires, an elite special fighting force, find themselves ambushed and stranded behind enemy lines. They struggle to survive under siege, waiting on a rescue that might never come. In the seedy starport of Ackabar, a young girl searches the crime-ridden gutters to avenge her father's murder; not far away, a double-dealing legionniare-turned-smuggler hunts an epic payday; and somewhere along the outer galaxy, a mysterious bounter hunter lies in wait.
Good listen RC Bray was great as always. Story was suspenseful hopefully the future books will be able to keep up with the same level of writing

An Admiralty summons to England cuts short Thomas Kydd's service in the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. While the crew of L'Aurore can look forward to liberty and prize money, a shadow hangs over their captain: the impending court martial of his one-time commander, Commodore Popham, who led a doomed attack on South America. Following Nelson's death two years earlier, England is in desperate need of heroes and Kydd's Caribbean exploits are the talk of London.
A nice change of direction for the two main characters that allows the adventures to continue. Excellent performance ,great way to continue the story!
Napoleon's forces are poised to invade Britain, and Commander Thomas Kydd's ship is at the forefront of the fleet defending the English coast. His honour restored after temporary disgrace in the Channel Islands, and reunited with his ship Teazer, Kydd seizes the chance to fight for his country. Then Kydd is abruptly withdrawn from the fleet and sent back to Dover on a secret mission to guard a mysterious American inventor.
Very well performed. An interesting series that follows Captain Kydd’s rise in the Royal Navy. Overall worth the time and money. Continues to hold my interest.
Thrilled at his first command, Thomas Kydd must race to bring his ship to battle readiness - he is needed to defend Malta against Barbary corsairs, privateers and the French who are trying to rescue the remnants of their army in the Levant.
A pleasing continuation of the great adventure of Tom Kydd and Nicholas Ramsey. The Narration continues to be excellent
It is two years since Thomas Paine Kydd was spirited away in the night to serve his country aboard the 'Duke William'. Now, with his friend Nicholas Renzi and crew members from the 'Artemis', Tom is a shipwrecked sailor back in the land of his birth.
Well written continuation of the story. Enjoyable if you enjoy sea stories. Excellent narration, with easy differentiation of characters.
This second naval adventure follows the life of Thomas Paine Kydd who sails into Portsmouth a hero after a ferocious battle against the French. Soon the sea beckons and Kydd sets off aboard his beloved Artemis for another adventure.
Like the first it is a sea farriers tale, but not a pirate story. If you like the first you will like this one. A little slow at times but interesting to imagine the life of seamen during the great age of sail
1793 and Europe is ablaze with war. Thomas Paine Kydd, a young wig-maker from Guildford, is seized by the press gang to be a part of the crew of the 98-gun line-of-battle ship Duke William. The ship sails immediately and Kydd has to learn the harsh realities of shipboard life fast. Despite all that he goes through in danger of tempest and battle he comes to admire the skills and courage of the seamen - taking up the challenge himself to become a true sailor.
It’s a good sea story, but drags at times. Lots of nautical terminology that can be hard to follow. It is a good book to get lost in. Excellent narration. Main character is not to be confused with the pirate William Kidd. This is not a pirate story.
