On the journey to romantic success many inexperienced men make the mistake of incongruent body language, misread the signals that women give to them, and telegraph the wrong signals to women who would have otherwise liked them. They miss their chance and you are one of them. Through life experience I have overcome these missed opportunities and will teach you all that concisely. What you need to do is to understand women focus on your body language and master the art of flirtation, attraction, and seduction.

The Galactics arrived with their Battle Fleet in 2052. Rather than being exterminated under a barrage of hell-burners, Earth joined a vast Empire that spanned the Milky Way. Today, Battle Fleet 921 is returning to Earth. It hasn't been seen by human eyes since our blissful day of Annexation. But what should be a joyful occasion, a chance to grovel at the feet of superior lifeforms, is rapidly becoming a nightmare.

Larson has once again hit a home run in this latest chapter of this series. The twists and turns that occur throughout this edition coupled with extremely well written action and dialogue, keep the book running smoothly. The set up at the end for the next book of James McGill 's exploits leaves me excited for more.
Mr. Boyette's performance is, once again, proof that he's one of the best in the business.
If you're looking for a great series to invest in, look no further.

Another great listen to the series. The stories really work best for me when they are performed by a cast. Just me but it really brings the characters to life.
The story itself was well written and gave you twists without making you overthink too much. Really helps to have read/listened to the last book though.

But now one of the heroes, perhaps the most powerful among them, seems to be losing his mind. The implacable enemy known as Legion has found terrifying new ways of using zombies as pawns in his attacks.

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

Long time member, so I've heard my share of books. This, by far, is the best I've heard. Decided to try it with my credit, movie was coming so why not. Wow, grabs you (in a funny kinda way) and keeps you. Performance is top notch with Bray keeping you invested in every aspect of the story.

I decided on this one based on it was Star Wars, you knew there was going to be combat scenes, and the sample sounded good.
I've listened to it twice, maybe I didn't catch it right the first time...no, it's too confusing. I couldn't figure out who the main character was, why I should care about them, and what was really going on. I thought this was going to be about some newbie who goes through trials and tribulations within the company to come out this war vet...it should have been.
Not saying avoid, but not on your must have list.

Star quarterback Quentin Barnes has spent three seasons putting together a hard-hitting, hard-fighting team that combines rookies, rejects, discarded free agents, and seasoned veterans from all five species.
