Twelve-year-old Zero is traveling with 20,000 people for 105 years to colonize a new planet. Everyone is in stasis, so they'll be safe during the trip, but when Zero's pod malfunctions it wakes him early, like 105 years early. At first he's excited to be the only one awake - he has the entire ship to himself, so he can go anywhere and see and do and eat anything he wants - but when a family of space pirates show up, trying to hijack the ship and kidnap the colonizers, Zero has to think fast and find a way to stop them all on his own.

Gabriel Delling might call himself a professional con artist, but when walking superstitions start trying to bite his face off, his charm is shockingly unhelpful. It turns out living nightmares almost never appreciate a good joke. Together with a succubus who insists on constantly saving his life, Gabe desperately tries to survive a new reality that suddenly features demons, legends, and a giant locust named Dale - all of whom pretty much hate his guts. And when an ancient horror comes hunting for a spirit locked in his head, Gabe finds himself faced with the excruciating choice between death...or becoming some kind of freaking hero.

I have one major complaint. The next book in this series isn't already available to purchase.

Author narrators don't get better than this. The story has a fantastic pace and is an outstanding introduction to a fascinating take on the human psyche fueled magical world that I cannot wait to explore further.

Mr. Erikson, I'm waiting for more...patiently...here in my living room...just waiting...so please do something as magical as the first and release me from the cycle of relistens I'm trapped in.

Many view "hitting rock bottom" as a foundation on which to rebuild one's life, a place from which one can only ascend. Gamers know to search for a secret door leading down to the sewer.

These books make me laugh out loud...in public ... at images of raunchy fantasy beasts ...

You look like you just lost a game of Jumanji.
