I found the story pretty enjoyable. It's a fairly straightforward read and is well paced. It's a story that would encourage a young reader with the main character's resilience and determination.

Dalinar Kholin's Alethi armies won a fleeting victory at a terrible cost. The enemy Parshendi summoned the violent Everstorm, which now sweeps the world with destruction and in its passing awakens the once peaceful and subservient parshmen to the horror of their millennia-long enslavement by humans. While on a desperate flight to warn his family of the threat, Kaladin Stormblessed must come to grips with the fact that the newly kindled anger of the parshmen may be wholly justified.

Brandon Sanderson is one of my favorite authors. I really enjoy his imagry and development of his systems of magic. His character development is second to none and the pace and flow of his writing is exceptional. It seemed as though he may have been working on some new literary techniques in this novel with regards to the emotional staging of some scenes and, for me, this kind of detracted from the pacing of some scenes. i.e. the emotional build up displaced the story, and I came for the story. but regardless Sanderson is one of the best. If you aren't listening to, or reading, his books and you like this genre you are missing out. The narrators do a fantastic job as always.

Meet the galaxy's unluckiest outlaws. Carl Ramsey is an ex-Earth Navy fighter pilot turned con man. His ship, the Mobius, is home to a ragtag crew of misfits and refugees looking to score a big payday but more often just scratching to pay for fuel. The crew consists of his ex-wife (and pilot), a drunkard, four-handed mechanic, a xeno-predator with the disposition of a 120kg housecat, and the galaxy's most-wanted wizard.

What made the experience of listening to Galaxy Outlaws: The Complete Black Ocean Mobius Missions, 1-16.5 the most enjoyable?

I found this series to be a very enjoying, simple read. It has a nice scope of concept that I found very easy to engage with and very easy to listen to while I went about my usual responsibilities in life. That is something I really value in an audio book. While not as epic in scope as some other works out there for anyone who enjoyed Farscape or Serenity you will enjoy this omnibus. I have recommended this to my brothers and father.

What did you like best about this story?

What I enjoyed most was Mort! The magic system is pretty cool and his character development is great. He's kind of a barbarian Technomagus.

Have you listened to any of Mikael Naramore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to his other works.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

"Dark Magic, Dark Science and The Deep Astral..."

The world is broken. The powerful machines that once ruled over land and sky fought and died, leaving humanity in a primitive age of swords and monsters. But that was long ago, and only legends of the Schism remain. Enoch has never been frightened by these tales. He sees things differently from the other youth in Rewn's Fork, and that makes him an outcast. Where others see crops and weather and flocks of sheep, Enoch sees numbers and patterns.

But for Aedan, a scruffy young adventurer with veins full of fire and a head full of ideas, this officer is not what he seems. The events that follow propel Aedan on a journey that only the foolhardy or desperate would risk, leading him to the gates of the nation's royal academy - a whole world of secrets in itself. But this is only the beginning of his discoveries.

This book covers all the basics of a really good epic fantasy, but the area where it shines is in the vision of the author. I found this book suprising enjoyable and I was disapointed when the book ended. I will deffinatly be buying the next book as my next purchase.
