The Neuroweb began as the greatest invention since written language. A simple brain implant allowed the user to access information, entertainment, and even pain relief. The Neuroweb was the beginning of a golden age for mankind.... Until it was compromised. Everyone with the implant lost his or her most important commodity: free will. The collective human consciousness was hacked and is now directed by artificial intelligence. Only those without the Neuroweb have a chance of resisting...if they dare.

A survival of the fittest, against all-odds from AI Supremacy. Humans thought that they ruled the technology world. What they did not know was that AI...will rule them.

Well done in the story. Characters were written well to make them feel real. Real feelings, emotions, real reality of what could happen. Narrator did a great job as well.

Reminds me between I Am Legend (Richard Matheson), Until Nothing Remains (C.A. Rudolph), and The Gamma Earth Cycle (Craig Halloran).

And they have done it again! I definitely will get my kids to listen to these audio books. perfect for their age! I am very pleased, again, with the story line, and everything in between. There is actually a lot to learn from these kids- that even though you don't get along, you can still work out differences and still be friends and work as a team! Creativity, ingenuity, and working hard to reach your goal!

This was a very refreshing book. This book is mainly catered towards kids. However, the way it was written, it is enjoyable for adults alike! In a way, this story reminds me the movies 'The Black Stallion', and 'The Black Stallion Returns'.

All the authors did a fantastic job integrating realistic, fantasy, and imagination to a level that I know that all kids, youth, AND adults will enjoy! A simple, short, but awesome book! Plus, Narrator Heather Auden did a fantastic job with the voices. I look forward to looking to more of her narrations, and the authors books!

I have read kids stories, and this book, without a doubt, is an Awesome Possum book!

Starlyn loves her mother and desperately searches for any way to help her, yet it seems there is little she can do but sit and watch. Even the kheshlarn healers and herbalists are stunned and cannot find a way. Other kheshlars turn away from her aid, afraid of a weakness - an illness - in her bloodline, and would rather her mother die than taint the others with her weakness. Starlyn’s sister, Arria, refuses to sit and watch as their mother dies and takes more drastic measures to try and save their mother. She dives into the restricted books in the kheshlarn library about dark magic.

I have listened to many audio books, and each story has it's unique way to grab the listener's attention. Which it falls to the story and Narrator.

As for this book, I honestly had a hard time getting used to the "sound" of the audio book. It sounded like it was done cheaply...or the audio tech didn't do a good job at all to clear the voice up.

The story was...interesting. I think this book could use a little revamping (and audio).

This book has great story behind it, the performance and Narrator, but for me, there is way too much foul language for my taste. I thought it might get better, but it didn't. So I had to stop listening.

Some can handle it, some can't. Again, I am rating based upon the language. Everything else was great!

Never before has the United States been subjected to widespread coordinated terrorist attacks, devastating enough to bring the entire nation to its knees. Until now.

This is my first post apocalypse (right as everything starts) that I have read. The other one was I Am Legend by Richard Matheson...which is more of after the event happening.

The story was well written in such great details as to cause/effect of the economy, the way the government would react, and as well as other nations. Don't want to go into such detains, but will guarantee that you will be pleased. You can tell that a lot of background research was done to accomplish the realistic of this book. Also reminds me of, in a way, pieces of Clear and Present Danger, and The Sum of All Fears. There is some strong language as well.

So if you are looking for a story that will keep you listening up-till 3AM, then this is your companion!

C.A. Rudolph did a fantastic job with the story and everything in between. Great ob as well to the Narrator Kevin Pierce. Great job in character voices and accents!

Greg did an awesome job in writing, in detail, the characters and their role in this story. It was articulated in such great detail that I can visualize what is going on and somewhat sense what that character is feeling.

Helga is one-of-a-kind character who thinks is an all down warrior. But after what she went through, reality slaps her in the face and recognizes that war, battle, and death is not something to take light of. It is either her and her team that will survive, or the brain-suckers. But are they the only enemy out there? Will it be too late to reveal the bigger plans for the Nighthawks?

Cari also did a fantastic job narrating the voices. It can be very difficult to narrate masculine voices. She pulled it off perfectly.

In the distant past, long before people populated the Earth, and before animals roamed the planet, something terrifying and cunning made its home in the vegetation covering the planet like a soft green blanket. Lying in wait for millions of years, this species continued to evolve, patiently crossing over and manipulating the genetic code of different species. And now, this perfect omniscient being, born from oblivion, has awakened and is ready to feed.

This audible somewhat reminds me of the movie Phantoms by author Dean R Koontz. I actually enjoyed the introduction and the "phantom" voice. It hooked me immediately and have enjoyed it throughout. Narrator did a very well done. Different accent, I will give you that, but it worked great!

This was well written: plot was thought out, story line was equally well-done, each character given unique characteristics, and it kept me listening, trying to figure out what is going to happen next.

If you are looking for an audible that is not only entertaining, enjoyable, and thrilling, I recommend this!

When I first started listening, it just seemed so simple written. But then later on, I then realized this was (I believe) is catered for more towards teenagers. Which made a lot more sense. After that, I then switched my mindset to youth (haha) and then it became more enjoyable. I'm used to listening to chaos books, etc etc.. But Peter did a real awesome job in introducing this book for youth to enjoy. Narrator did a well done job as well.

No language as far as I heard or anything inappropriate. So if you are looking for something good for your kids, I would recommend this. Brings listeners to the action, adventure, and endless imagination.
