Bob Johansson has just sold his software company and is looking forward to a life of leisure. There are places to go, books to read, and movies to watch. So it's a little unfair when he gets himself killed crossing the street. Bob wakes up a century later to find that corpsicles have been declared to be without rights, and he is now the property of the state. He has been uploaded into computer hardware and is slated to be the controlling AI in an interstellar probe looking for habitable planets.

The White Tree (book one): In Mallon the dark magic of the nether has been banned for centuries. Its users have been driven out or killed. Its secrets lost. But the holy book of the nethermancers has just been found by a boy named Dante. As he works to unlock the book's power, he's attacked in the street. The nethermancers aren't gone—and they want their book back. Caught between death cultists and the law, Dante fights for his life, aided by his growing skills and a brash bodyguard named Blays.

In the year 2280, an alien fleet attacked the Earth. Their weapons were unstoppable, their defenses unbreakable. Our technology was inferior, our militaries overwhelmed. Only one starship escaped before civilization fell. Earth was lost. It was never forgotten. Fifty-two years have passed. A message from home has been received. The time to fight for what is ours has come.

only downside is i wish audible had found some way to include the dictionary at the back of the book. it would be very helpfull to reference somthing incase you miss the definition on the playback but it reads well enough that its not essential

After 70 audible purchases i finally found one that was a total waste of my time.
It has a very "low budget scify movie" feel to it.
Interactions between characters was childish at best and just pathetic at the worst.
Seriously though, an AI that can read your mind but forgets words? And nobody else can talk to it?
A Captain that is questioned on EVERY order?
I could keeo going but their's really nothing good i can say.
If you make the mistake of buying it and get the same hunch i did after the first few chapters...
Delete and get a refund cause it only goes downhill from there.

In the 25th century, humans have conquered space. The advent of faster-than-light travel has opened up hundreds of habitable planets for colonization, and humans have exploited the virtually limitless space and resources for hundreds of years with impunity. So complacent have they become with the overabundance that armed conflict is a thing of the past, and their machines of war are obsolete and decrepit. What would happen if they were suddenly threatened by a terrifying new enemy?
