Amidst harrowing famine and deadly aliens, Jarek is having a pretty good day. He survived Earth's invasion, he still has his ship, and his prized exo-suit and AI-companion are safe and sound. But when his weaponized suit is stolen, he'll stop at nothing to get it back. Even if he has to break into the alien king's stronghold to do it. On the way to spring his imprisoned informant, though, an energy-slinging arcanist named Rachel lays claim to the same captive.

Most enjoyable. Fast paced and action packed. I like the performance by Steven Barnett who bring the characters to life with his narration. The dialogue was excellent and flows smoothly. Written in the third person which is what I like. The protagonist was likeable and the humour was good. Very good start to a new series which I intend to follow. I hope the next book will come out soon. Luke R Mitchell is a new writer to me and I will be looking forward to more of his books.

In the aftermath of the destruction of the Cadre’s main base, there was a period of quiet in the Solar System. Now, however, pirate attacks are on the rise again. When the Cadre ambushes a medical convoy under the protection of Brad Madrid and the Vikings Mercenary Company, the attacking warship turns out to be of a type and class the pirates should never have come into possession of.

Interesting. Lots of action and intrigues. Brad and his crew are faced with hidden plots and counter-plots. So many of his crew died fighting the pirates. Though he valiantly fight on it is heartbreaking when he loses some of his people. Glynn Stewart writes very well with emotions of sadness, anger and frustrations. Jeffrey Kafer performed excellently as usual. I am looking forward for the next book to come out soon.

The long and bloody war with the vampires in the United States has finally ended, thanks to the efforts of the vampire Arbiter and ONSET Commander David White - and a nuclear explosion on American soil. The final battle proves harder to conceal than hoped, however, and a series of high profile incidents end any chance of hiding the supernatural. Suddenly, the world is faced with the fact that it is both more wonderful and more terrible than humanity ever realized.

It gets better and better. The plot and storyline is awesome and Vikas Adam performed marvellously. Bravo. I love both Dakota Krout's and Vikas Adam's combination. This is the first series I ever tried of this genre as I don't understand much of virtual reality. But because Vikas Adam is performing I gave it a chance and I was astounded by how much I love the series. I will continuing this series and it will definitely be one of my collections. I'm waiting anxiously for the next book to come out and I do hope it will be soon.
Worth the credit for sure!

This is what a hero is. Absolutely fantastic. Lloyd James performed excellently. He brought the characters to life. His performance of Lord Caz is so beautiful and touched me so much. Lord Caz is what I would expect a nobleman and gentleman to behave. A man of honour and integrity. His sufferings and humility is to be admired. Lois Bujold is a brilliant and talented writer. T his a complete book even though it is book 2 in the Chalion series. It would be nice if there is more on Lord Caz and his adventures in future books.

Well done. The conclusion is so unexpected. I enjoyed the whole series tremendously. However I do hope there will be more stories on Kate's and Curan's family and their friends/allies. I hope there will also be more coming on Comlyn's (hope the spelling is correct) growing up. Very, very good series not to be missed. I have the whole collection in my Audible Library and I have read and re-read a number of times. Never got tired of it. Worth the credits!

Lots of intrigues and action. I'm glad that Dr Tom Bennington 111 is included in the plot. Ally is the main character but it would be great if Tom Bennington is more involved in the actions rather than be mentioned more during bedtime! Other than that the plot and storyline is good and Erica Sullivan performed well.

How has this woman missed the fact that the man is blind? From the curb, an outraged Allie jumps to his rescue, rebagging the groceries as well. The money is in the bag - literally.

I almost pass this series by because it is written in the first person. I am so glad I gave it a chance. It is absolutely fantastic. The characters were so well narrated/performed by Erica Sullivan. Very well written storyline. This is the first book written by Annie Hogsett that I have come across and I will definitely look forward to more books of hers. Wonderful plot and very likeable characters. Continuing with book 2 immediately.
