Jazz Bashara is a criminal. Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you're not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent. Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down.

Where does Artemis rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Artemis is the best audio-book I have ever heard. It is definitely my number one.

What did you like best about this story?

The story is original and refreshing. It touches on every part of my emotions as I listen to it, I felt excitement, anger, greed, humility, anxious, happiness, and sadness through the story line. I am not sure why, but I think it is a mix of the outstanding job of Rosario and the story itself.

What does Rosario Dawson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Depth of tone. Sense of emotion bleeds through the speakers. And furthermore, she has a really good voice.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I wanted to listen to it all in one sitting, but that just isn't possible with my schedule. But it kept me on my toes ready for more, and wondering what would come next. Eager to hit the play button as soon as I possible could, rewinding a bit to ensure I didn't miss a beat.

Any additional comments?

I am excited with the idea that this production could turn into a movie starring Rosario Dawson. I will be on the look out at the box office for this one, that's for sure.

Peace isn't the way we thought it would be. The planet hangs on the brink of collapse, with only pockets of resistance remaining. While governments fold and submit in the wake of a new enemy, civilians are rounded up and assimilated into new communities. With the little that remains, Jacob knows that they must make a stand and let the world know that we will not lie down quietly. Those who are willing to take up the fight. They see that now is a time for heroes...a last chance to stand up against the invaders.

What did you love best about The Light?

Although I look forward to a continuation of the series if it ended with this book the author did a great job wrapping it up. I am always kept on the edge of my seat with this series and that is something I rarely find in a book.

What did you like best about this story?

Sometimes I think about what it would be like if this happened in real life, and I think the author hit the nail right on the head with this series. Great job!

What about Kevin T. Collins’s performance did you like?

Overall the performance was good, the narrator kept the same voices for the characters in sync and audibly identifiable; which I find is rare. So overall, a good job.

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

Don't look away!

Any additional comments?

The narration to a little getting used to, but the narrator grew on me by the middle of the second book. I did notice some background noise that sounded like a PC alert a couple of times on the second book, but hey, that's ok.

As war rages in 1944, young army lieutenant Lucas Athan recovers a sarcophagus excavated from an Egyptian tomb. Shipped to Princeton University for study, the box contains mysteries that only Lucas, aided by brilliant archaeologist Simone Rashid, can unlock. These mysteries may, in fact, defy - or fulfill - the dire prophecies of Albert Einstein himself.

I haven't read, or listened to a fictional book in years. I have mostly been studying non-fiction. However as a child, I grew up listening to audio books with my parents,. With that said, this reading is great.
