The Shadow of What Was Lost
- The Licanius Trilogy, Book 1
- By: James Islington
- Narrated by: Michael Kramer
- Length: 25 hrs and 28 mins
It has been 20 years since the end of the war. The dictatorial Augurs, once thought of almost as gods, were overthrown and wiped out during the conflict, their much-feared powers mysteriously failing them. Those who had ruled under them, men and women with a lesser ability known as the Gift, avoided the Augurs' fate only by submitting themselves to the rebellion's Four Tenets.
Definitely a standout in the fantasy genre

While I can see where people think it's a wheel of time knock off, I think it is its own story. Looking forward to next book.

- Doom Star, Book 1
- By: Vaughn Heppner
- Narrated by: Ely Miles
- Length: 10 hrs and 52 mins
It’s survival of the fittest in a brutal war of extinction! Created in the gene labs as super soldiers, the Highborn decide to replace the obsolete Homo sapiens. They pirate the Doom Stars and capture the Sun Works Ring around Mercury. Now they rain asteroids, orbital fighters and nine-foot tall drop troops onto Earth in a relentless tide of conquest. Marten Kluge is on the receiving end. Hounded by Thought Police, he lives like an ant in a kilometer-deep city.
Worst narration I've heard from any audible book

A bit slow at times
Worse thing about this was the mono tone reading at the start. I had to put it down and come back to it a number of times just to get past the first few chapters.
