Gun Meister Online is a recently released virtual-reality combat simulator. Players assume the role of a Meister; fighting in matches and ranking up into higher divisions. Within the game, weapons take on human shape. These NPC's use a new Dynamic Distributed Personality System recently implemented, and many are excited by how life-like the AI characters are becoming. Charlie has only just begun to play, and he struggles to grow as a Meister. At the same time, he starts to take charge of his real-life outside.

Gina and Rachel have agreed to help Lilith's attempt to get the death sentence on her head rescinded, but they have to work carefully. Their time runs short, though. Doctor Johnson's plots advance, and other villains are infiltrating San Francisco. In the end, the question becomes what to do when Lilith's identity is discovered, and all hell breaks loose. Despite the risk of death bearing down on her, Lilith decides that she's tired of simply running away.

For some, hopes, dreams, and ambitions come easily. Not so much for Lilith. Created by one of the most feared supervillains, Shadowmind, she has no past of her own and only a passing familiarity with the world as it is. With a death sentence hanging over her head due to who created her and how, she escaped into the world to see and explore, and perhaps find a meaning to her life. There, she encounters heroes and villains alike, including those who brought her maker to justice.

Benjamin Medrano has an amazing talent for world building, in addition to making strong lead characters that are interesting and fascinating- when coupled with Sara Beth Goers awesome voice acting giving every character their own unique voice you get something magic to listen to.

Runner and his team managed to bring peace to Tirtius, successfully log the crew out, and have begun settling in to make a home on the isle of Vix. Fate isn't going to let them go that easily though. She clearly hasn't decided on what to do with him. Plots are in motion. Threats local, divine, and abroad scheme to exterminate Runner and the threat he represents. The possibility of what he could become.

William D Arand finishes off his selfless hero trilogy with what I can only describe as the best book of the series. New characters and old favourites with some solid world building and character development I've found myself going back to the first book to start enjoying the trilogy again.

Jeff Hays has worked his magic on this book as well, if your not familiar with his other work I strongly recommend checking it out, he has a gift for adding a unique tone to each character, adding another dimension to an already good work there's not much more I can add to this without spoilers so I'll just finish up by saying it was worth a credit, and I hope to see the author add more onto this in the future, there's so much potential for more books and I'm more than willing to buy them

Dangerous and unpredictable, he's locked away in SafeHaven, a psychiatric hospital, where he spends the long days watching Wheel of Fortune and wondering what the outside world smells like. When a mysterious visitor arrives and offers him a way out Crazy doesn't hesitate to accept.

Erik's done it again, I can't recommend his books highly enough, if The Bridge: Trolls interested you I strongly recommend Drakon. If Scifi is more your thing Return of the Asgard will definitely be for you, I'm personally a huge fan of the Music of the Soul contemporary romance series and I can't wait to see more of Eriks books available in audio, spend a credit you won't regret it.

When a weakness of Valkyrie sight is uncovered, Kara, Kate and an unlikely ally, must race against time to stop a saboteur before Valhalla falls. Arina copes with being a new type of Valkyrie and defies Odin while reminding the ruling caste what the ideals of the Asgard are and what they should all aspire to be. She must help a young Ragnarok, who was sent to die at the gates of Valhalla, to learn the truth about the Asgard and her own people. Old enemies and lost friends weave a web that could spell the end for one of Odin's own.

Where does The Valkyrie Chronicles rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Definitely near the top of my library.

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

Yes, definitely as good as the first book fans of the first won't be disappointed.

Any additional comments?

My only complaint is that i really can't wait to listen to the next book in the series.... ;)

The Valkyrie Kara stood alone against the Ragnarok horde on Earth to ensure that the Asgard race and Valhalla could escape. For 5,000 years she has fought and evaded the Ragnarok race on Earth, just waiting for her people to return. A human woman, Kate, joins her fight, showing as much conviction and valor as any Valkyrie. Their friendship quickly becomes something more as they hold the line on Earth in battle, to herald the return of the Asgard.
