An all-new, full-cast dramatization of the classic graphic novel. The isolated town of Barrow, Alaska, is plunged into darkness for a month each year when the sun sinks below the horizon. As the last rays of light fade, the town is attacked by a bloodthirsty gang of vampires bent on an uninterrupted orgy of destruction. Only Barrow's husband-and-wife sheriff team stand between the survivors and certain destruction. . By the time the sun rises, will they pay the ultimate price - or worse?

The voice acting was great, the story was fun to follow, but it felt like there was a lot of story missing from this audio experience. Who were the people tracking the vampires? Who else exists in this #dark and #scary world? We got some back story on the couple, and that helped create a great form of emotional attachment, but I feel like we needed more depth on the people trying to get proof of the vampires. Maybe this is opening up for something more down the line. I could see this developing into a great series.

Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. Life couldn’t be better…until Andrew begins to pick up on the facts that (1) every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces; (2) the ship’s captain, its chief science officer, and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations; and (3) at least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed.

This was a fun book to listen to. The premise was great and the story was fun until about 3/4 of the way through and then I felt like it could have been better.

Definitely a lot of chuckle out loud moments, and the pacing was well done. The idea behind the story is unique and engaging. It really puts a whole new perspective on the red shirts from the original Star Trek. This was all great and enjoyable until it wasn’t.

I continued through just to see how the story ended after the 3/4 point. Definitely worth a read if you love the old sci-fi show, Star Trek, from the 70’s

Sea of Sorrows is much better than River of Pain. This feels more like a direct sequel to Out of the Shadows. Now I have to wait for the next full cast performance.

You can smell that long-dying aroma of Autumn in the air. Kids are talking trick or treat and the leaves are already screaming at you in red and yellow and deep golden rust as they prepare for one final parachute down into the dirt. The tombstones are talking amongst themselves and winter is hiding just around the corner. It is the time of the year when people draw around the wood stove and the campfire and whisper stories of death and omens and ghosts and things that don't even have a name.

I enjoyed this book for the nice afternoon read it is. I'll definitely put this on my autumn reading list for a lazy afternoon. Mr Vernon does a wonderful job with his metaphors and paints a rather creepy picture for his stories.

Pick this book up, grab a nice cup or tea, and wrap yourself under a warm blanket for the afternoon. Just be prepared to see the world in a slightly darker manner.

Titan was one of the nation's most loved and respected Heroes, until an infidelity scandal tore his image and family apart. After decades spent out of the limelight, Owen Daniels has decided to take up the mantle of Titan once again to try and make amends for his years away. Unfortunately, the Titan Scandal is still common knowledge, and no Hero team wants such a polarizing figure.

This book is a testament to the paperwork world created by Drew Hayes. It definitely adds a fun dynamic to the Super Powereds universe and begins to introduce to jobs beyond just being a Super Hero.

Anyway, I loved the book and would highly recommend it!
