I get that this is just a quick hit book, but please use an English speaking ghostwriter and/or editor. From wrong word choice to horrible pronounciation, you end up focusing on the mistakes. Maybe that is the point, because there is no information in this book worth remembering.

This entire series is amazing! It was Drew Hayes' writing come to life as an awesome listening experience through Kyle McCarley's narration. Kyle's range of voices and inflection of emotions and subtle sighs, laughs, and coughs that made the series one that I am so glad I listened to instead of read! I just think the audible experience made the series come alive in a way reading it wouldn't have.

When Gunnar Long is transported into the first fully-immersive virtual MMORPG, he finds himself in a new world filled with magic, mystery, and adventure. No more 9-to-5 job. No more studio apartment. No more reality TV. Finally, he's in a place where he can call home, a place with people he can call friends. But as more people want to trade their real world lives to get inside Eden's Gate, the government of the outside world wants the "game" shut down at all costs.

I think the story follows the same trope as every litrpg, guy gets stuck in game, guy becomes adventurer, guy gets cool gear and abilities to the amazement of those around him, guy completes a complex task/quest, story continues. It could be a good series too. But, I don't care fall the f bombs. I don't think there's a single five minute span without an f bomb. So I can't recommend it.

Mahan's ready for new adventures - just as the gaming world of Barliona thought it was about to reenter its old comfortable rut. The winds of the Dark Forest have finally died down; Altameda has recognized its new owner while Geranika is nursing new schemes of global destruction. Would Mahan be happy with this predictable old life? We think not!

For eons, conquering dungeons has been the most efficient way to become a strong adventurer. Although not everything is as straightforward as it seems. Several questions have always plagued the minds of those who enter these mythical places of power: why are there so many monsters? Where do the amazing weaponry and heavy gold coins come from? Why does the very air fill with life-giving energies? Cal has all of the answers to these age-old questions, for a very simple reason. He is a Dungeon Heart.

The story is good, solid, and complete. I liked the narration and the plot quite a bit!

I enjoy Dean Koontz books and loved the Odd Thomas and Frankenstein series.

However, and this is a minor thing when considering this book, it didn't leave me wanting to read the next in the series.

I highly recommend Fear Nothing as a stand alone, but I doubt I will read/listen to the next in the series. It is just that good at closing the loops!

Kindle publishing doesn't have to mean $50 royalty checks and hours spent updating countless Facebook pages all so that a couple hundred people may or may not grab a free copy of your book. Kindle publishing can actually be the most magical thing of all to writers: the chance to have a lucrative self publishing career doing the thing they love most: writing words down. We couldn't have said any of this 10 years ago.

Since he left his simple life in the small town of Pico Mundo, California, his journey has taken him to places strange and wonderful, mysterious and terrifying. Across the land, in the company of mortals and spirits alike, he has known kindness and cruelty, felt love and loss, saved lives and taken them - as he's borne witness to humanity's greatest good and darkest evil.

Earth has made first contact with an alien race. At the historic first meeting, an ambush put peace for humanity out of reach. Colonel Kyle Martin was there that day. It was his leadership and the bravery of his marines that saved what little hope mankind had. When Earth was threatened with invasion, Martin again felt the weight of war pressing down on him.

What did you love best about Bright Horizons?

I'm a fan of science fiction with a military background. Bright Horizons brings both to the table. The characters feel real and Jim McCabe does a great job with his voice characterizations!

The other thing that makes Bright Horizons a little more interesting than other books about First Contacts that I've read, is there are a lot of prequel stories that I'd like to see fleshed out either in the continuing books or may off shoot stories like I've seen in the Joe Ledger series. Bright Horizons does have enough background that continues to tie it all together, but I know there are more stories to the India War as one example.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Bright Horizons?

There is an interesting twist to the first contact and I do not want to give that away, but how it plays out and changes Earth's future course makes Bright Horizons an intriguing story that keeps you paying attention to the details.

Have you listened to any of Jim McCabe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not, but I'd like to hear him narrate the rest of the series by Wilson Harp!

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

Bright Horizons - Marines First to Diplomacy in the Last Frontier

Any additional comments?

Bright Horizons is the first in a series and I hope the other two will be narrated. But, I have a feeling that I'll be buying the series as kindle books in anticipation.

Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.
