In a world full of super powers, Felix has a pretty crappy one. He has the ability to modify any item he owns. To upgrade anything. Sounds great on paper. Almost like a video game. Except that the amount of power it takes to actually change, modify, or upgrade anything worthwhile is beyond his abilities. With that in mind, Felix settled into a normal life. A normal job. His entire world changes when the city he lives in is taken over by a super villain. Becoming a country of one city. A city state.

As metahumans emerge throughout the world, some greet them as saviors while others see them as a threat to humanity itself. A group of elite soldiers come into possession of the most powerful metabands seen yet, with the ability to destroy what was thought to be indestructible: the metabands themselves. With the destruction of the Silver Island Metahuman Detention Facility, Bay View City goes into total lockdown. The Alpha Team impose their protection, but at a price: the complete and total ban of metahumans within the city.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If the author remembered what he previously wrote, and the character interactions actually made sense and weren't irrational and irritating.

What do you think your next listen will be?

In ashes born by Nathan Lowell I like his previous series.

Would you be willing to try another one of Kirby Heyborne’s performances?

His performance was fine, the material was bad!

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger and disappointment. The supporting characters were enraging and petty.

Any additional comments?

If the author could remember his plot and previous scenes; it would be much obliged!

It's not easy being king. Especially when you've got an allergy to sunrise and sunset, a fire goddess for a mother-in-law, demonic adversaries, random assassins, and a basement full of insecurities to cope with. Add to that his daughter, the fire priestess/princess; a couple of lightly deranged professional magicians; a whole city full of wizards; and enough squabbling princes to resemble a kindergarten argument. It's enough to make a man want to just go home.

Would you consider the audio edition of A Federation Forged in Fire to be better than the print version?

I don't know if it is better, but listening to audio books allow me to do the things I can't do while reading.

What other book might you compare A Federation Forged in Fire to and why?

Sara king series of zero remind me of the Koban series. I love these series. I hate when they end!

What about Eric Michael Summerer’s performance did you like?

Love him also! His performances of this series, In my opinion, is spot on!

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

Don't mess with Koban!

Fresh off their successful quest to thwart not one, but two diabolical plots to destroy the world, jaded reporter Christine Temetri and rough cherub Mercury find that mysterious powers outranking even the Heavenly bureaucracy seem intent on keeping the Apocalypse on track. Mercury Rises continues author Robert Kroese’s tale of the heroic cherub Mercury, who is generally well-intentioned, rarely well-behaved, and always well-armed with a droll remark. While the world is plagued by natural disasters and nations.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Sure, but I would tell them to read the book first. It allows you to visualize the story better.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Forging Zero?

The last battle, and the pain endured because of it.

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

I just prefer to read more, the narrator did a great job.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this series so far I can't wait for the 4th book to be released.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jim Butcher again?

Of course

Did Kate Reading do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes she does a good job. I just hate the horns. What is their purpose? I hate them so much I only gave the performance 3 stars instead of 4!

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

Yes.
