In The Land: Predators, the Mist Village has harnessed its power. With core buildings, professional fighters, and now their own dungeon, the settlement is primed to grow into a kingdom of true power and magic. The path to power has not been without risk, however. The MistVillage has been noticed. Evil nobles from the Kingdom of Law, bloodthirsty goblins from the Serrated Mountains, an undead lord with a penchant for human sacrifice, and fanatical kobolds from the Depths all plot the village's destruction.

As far as the audio book. Goes this book is 40 hrs long but half of it are just prompts to richter about all his crap. This book is by far the worst with all the prompts. Really kinda pissed me off

LITERALLY HALF THE BOOK IS BS PROMPTS.

Great story and performance, this was my first litrpg book and I see many more in my future. I felt like I was playing world of Warcraft or Skyrim. The level up prompts get a little annoying but it’s also good to remember what the characters stats are before moving forward through the book. Definitely worth a ready to see if you like LitRPG. :)

can’t wait to dive into the next one.

Nothing ever changes in Sanders. The town's still got a video store, for God's sake. So why doesn't Eli Teague want to leave? Not that he'd ever admit it, but maybe he's been waiting - waiting for the traveler to come back. The one who's roared into his life twice before, pausing just long enough to drop tantalizing clues before disappearing in a cloud of gunfire and a squeal of tires. The one who's a walking anachronism, with her tricorne hat, flintlock rifle, and steampunked Model A Ford.

It was a good book and good story but for me personally it could have used a little more action. There were moments that I just wanted something to happen. It was fun to travel back and forth through time and made me think of my small mountain town in a California a little differently.

As a child, Chris Hooper dreamed of monsters. But in deep space, he found only darkness and isolation. Then, on planet LV178, he and his fellow miners discovered a storm-scoured, sand-blasted hell - and trimonite, the hardest material known to man. When a shuttle crashes into the mining ship Marion, the miners learn that there was more than trimonite deep in the caverns. There was evil, hibernating and waiting for suitable prey.

I think I have only seen the aliens movies a couple times but this book was action packed, very captivating and incredibly fun. Great performance by the actors and even though it didn’t have a narrator I could totally understand what was going on, and it had Good sound effects as well. Tied into the aliens franchise very well and kept it consistent with the movies as far as I could remember.

Two thumbs up.

The elite crew of the pirate ship UNS Flying Dutchman had a simple mission: determining whether the Thuranin are sending another starship to Earth. Along the way, they became sidetracked by securing a future for the UNEF troops on the planet Paradise. When asked whether Earth was now safe, their ancient alien AI responded "Not so much"...now they have to deal with the consequences.

You can pretty much fast forward to the last 3-4 hours of the book since everything up to that point doesn't progress the story or main plot. The introduction of nagatha is just lame and I was hoping to finish the series with this book but now I have wait for the 4th? And I'm not even sure I want to at this point. The author is struggling for new concepts and keeps reusing the same old tactics.

More than two centuries after World War III poisoned the planet, the final bastion of humanity lives on massive airships circling the globe in search of a habitable area to call home. Aging and outdated, most of the ships plummeted back to Earth long ago. The only thing keeping the two surviving lifeboats in the sky are Hell Divers - men and women who risk their lives by diving to the surface to scavenge for parts the ships desperately need.

Great book and good overall struggle for the future of mankind. A couple science inaccuracies but if you can get around that you really start to feel for what the characters have to go through to survive. Don't expect a perfect happy ending. But it does finish nicely.

I really feel like Olson Scott card had no idea how to end the series so just pulled something out of his butt to justify the destroyers. Loved every bit of the series except the last 5 chapters.

Decided to try another from Orson Scott card. This book can be a little confusing simply because of the paradoxes and theory of relativity. If you like sci fi and like time travel and stuff like that it's a great read. Characters are great nice twist at the end and it makes you think.
