The human race has turned to dust. August Morrison faces it after rising from the depths of a dark matter research facility in Arizona. His co-workers. His daughter. All of them: dust. Friends and colleagues around the world don’t answer their phones. The city of Phoenix burns. He is alone. As a world without mankind starts to crumble, August fights not just for survival, but for his very sanity. On the other side of the country, Poe McDowell watches her parents crumble into dust just moments after being shoved inside a coffin-like device that spares her from the same fate.

Great narration coupled with a great story.

This story was not what I expected and I am so glad for it. We are presented with two very different journeys through the appocalypse and so many unexpected occurences. This is a must read!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The story and characters were not very entertaining. To make matters worse there was a lot of religion and I felt kike I was being preached to every other sentance while the description made no mention of this being a religious story. I couldn't finish it.

Alex McTiernan is an ordinary college student if you don't count his social awkwardness, his sketchy past, and a routine bout of schizophrenia. Normal and boring, that is, until a series of dreams leads him to believe he is a descendant of the legendary King Arthur. Guided by an ancient prophecy written by a madman, Alex races to find Excalibur, the long-lost sword of his ancestor. Now if he can just avoid getting caught in between two warring secret organizations as well as the police, he might stand a chance.

The narration was great and the story was good. the only issue I had was with the main characters inability to see the forest for thw trees over and over and over. It was a running theme and would have made a great way to show this character develope but the author missed the oportunity. Still planning to give the next one a listen.

Raka Varoule is a second-rate investigative reporter, traveling between the 27 worlds of the Galactic Empire exposing minor scandals. His big break comes when he weasels his way onto the emperor’s personal star-cruiser to report live, across the galaxy, how the emperor is celebrating his birthday. When he exposes the biggest scandal in galactic history, he narrowly escapes with the help of a drug runner, a dominatrix, and a monkey wearing assless chaps. Together, they search for an escape from the empire, a barbarian world outside Imperial control. Then things get weird.

Being a sentient spaceship really should be more fun. But after spreading out through space for almost a century, Bob and his clones just can't stay out of trouble. They've created enough colonies so humanity shouldn't go extinct. But political squabbles have a bad habit of dying hard, and the Brazilian probes are still trying to take out the competition. And the Bobs have picked a fight with an older, more powerful species with a large appetite and a short temper.

All I'm going to say is that there is a dragon and a pirate ship made of bone. How awesome is that? I'll tell you, it was all kinds of crazy awesome but that wasn't all. I suggest you give the books a listen and see where Vesik's adventures take him. you will not be disappointed.
