Jack Davies led an unremarkable life, serving fast food in a nondescript seaside town by day and playing computer games by night. Unremarkable that is, until Professor Jericho ordered a sausage and a cup of tea. After discovering he has the ability to move through time and space, Jack embarks on a journey to repair a tear in the fabric of reality, with only his high school stalker, a television news crew, and a crossword puzzle for help. With every moment of indecision, the problem gets more complex. And Jack never could make up his mind.

The book concerns time travel, parallel universes and humans neglect to nature. The characters were enjoyable, but the plot may be hard for some to follow. Being able to follow the plot didn't bother me, but I found it a little boring and the message seems to be a little forced into the story. The story takes place in basically the same 3 areas and since they are dealing with parallel universes, repeats itself a bit. The narration was good. The voices were unique enough to tell the characters apart from one another and was loud and clear and easy to understand.

In service to the prime government, these heroes work to keep the streets of Terrax safe, acting as the world's super-hero police force, or so it seems. Terrible secrets lie deep within the core of Terrax Prime’s hero program, and one man will do whatever he can to bring those secrets to the surface..

This book isn't really a LITRPG by the basic terms since it takes place in their real world. There is no virtual reality system that they are connected to. The book takes place on a planet where some humans have developed special abilities or powers. The ones that work for the Government under a special program are known as heroes, and the others, well, villains. The Protagonist is actually a villain that hunts down and kills heroes. At first you may find it hard to root for him, but as the story develops, you began to see things his way and may even be considered a hero himself by the end of the book. During the story the heroes and villains stats are read as we meet them. So we hear their class stats, powers and their special abilities. Some heroes even level up when they are pushed to their limits. I enjoyed how the stats were given and what their capabilities were before the protagonist would face them. The story moved at a good steady pace and kept me intrigued through the entire book. I found the narrator has improved his ability to portray in his voice what the character is saying. Each character doesn't have their own separate voices, but there is enough change in tone and accent to under stand which character is talking.

When an ordinary guy’s implanted devices are reset after a construction accident that costs him his arm, the daemons in charge of his electronics are just trying to do their job as usual. But will they manage to keep their user happy and alive, when every bit of info they uncover becomes another part of a mystery, when it becomes clear that someone is framing him for murder, and when a corporation is sending a snake charmer assassin after him?

The concept for this book is very interesting. It is based in the future were tech has evolved to the point that it can be installed into humans. The tech also has Daemons with AI installed and they are part of the story. Each Daemon has their own personality and add a lot of humor to the story. Fingered! So what happens when your tech gets hacked and you no longer have control over your cybernetic hand? Things go wrong for the user and the Daemons try to save him. If your into Tech and computers you will enjoy this story. If you're not a techy, you can listen to Chapter 53 first, which is a glossary of the terms used. There is no spoilers in that chapter so don't worry. The only downside to this book is how short it is, but it does have an ending. The narration was great. Each character including the Daemons have their own voice and accent. I will definitely listen to another book written by George or narrated by Luke Rounda.

The story continues where it left off and is full of action. The comedy is great among the character interactions. Some very unique characters for the game world, such as a fecal pixie were funny to listen to. Great pacing and the action is non-stop. Jeff Hays unique voices for the characters is another reason this is a must listen. #Funny #Smartass #Witty #MultipleVoices #UniqueVoices #VoiceActor #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

Great series, non stop fun and action. I enjoy the candor of the Captain and his growing crew. Very well paced, characters are likeable and work well together. Narration is great, unique voice for each character and the scenes are acted out instead of just being read in a monotone voice. #Funny #Space #Smartass #Witty #MultipleVoices #UniqueVoices #VoiceActor #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

Jace Hughes is a Renegade. That means taking almost any job that comes his way, no matter the situation. So long as he can keep his ship floating, he's free to live the life he wants. But that all changes when he meets Abigail Pryar, a nun looking for safe passage out of the system. Too bad there's something off about the cargo she's carrying. Jace knows he shouldn't ask too many questions, but when strange sounds start coming from inside the large, metal box, he can't help but check it out. Big mistake. To make matters worse, he's being pursued by unknown ships - who want that cargo.

This audiobook contains the first 2 books in the series. The first book has some story lines that are reminiscent of Firefly. Hired gun takes on some new crew, one of them happens to be a kid with gifts and a space union that's after them at all cost. Sound familiar? That's basically where the similarities stop, which isn't bad. The story takes place over 2 thousand years in the future and everybody believes the stories of Earth are a myth. The kid may be the link to rediscovering it. The story is great, character building is well done and moves at a great pace. The tech and space travel is interesting and the ships AI and crew are enjoyable. Narration from Luke Daniels is always well done and includes unique voices for the characters. Each book had a satisfying ending. Getting both books for 1 credit makes it a definite buy. I'm looking forward to the other 2 packs. So far 6 books in the series. #Funny #Space #GreatDeal #Smartass #Witty #MultipleVoices #UniqueVoices #VoiceActor #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

The first book had a good story, but felt like it was only 25% of the way through when it ended. The second book starts of where the first one left off and we learn more about the strange power source and the rebels. It actually takes a weird turn that I wasn't expecting. Still not sure how I feel about it. There was more story and character development in this one than the first, but still feel it was a little short. Not sure how many books are being made, but if they were combined, this would make a better book overall than as individuals. The narration was good and you can hear the slight differences between characters. Well spoken and easy to understand. I received this book as a gift for my honest rating. #Vampires #Greatnarration #Future #Cyber #Computers #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

This was a nice short read in the LITRPG genre, but feel the story and narrating fell a little short. The story was good and so was the world building, but a lot of important details were left out. We don't have much back story for the main character or his sidekick. His sidekick is actually his pet lizard from Earth, but how that is possible or were exactly they are, is never told. The story has some good action but felt the ending was disappointing. When the story seems to hit a climax, it ends. The narrator, provides a unique voice for the characters, which is great, but it was very monotone. During the action scenes were the character is obviously screaming , the voice stays the same. It made it a little boring to listen to. Overall good read. I will give the next one a chance, but hope the narrator gets a little excited while reading it. I was offered this free book for my honest review. #LITRPG #Future #UniqueVoices #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

I really enjoy how the technology and military tactics are explained and laid out. Their technology and tactics have evolved, but the story didnt move forward too much. One of the small reoccurring characters dies, but unfortunately the event is not detailed, a missed opportunity. Each book before this felt like it had a good story and ending. This one felt a little short. Still a good listen and great narration.
