Jace Hughes is a Renegade. That means taking almost any job that comes his way, no matter the situation. So long as he can keep his ship floating, he's free to live the life he wants. But that all changes when he meets Abigail Pryar, a nun looking for safe passage out of the system. Too bad there's something off about the cargo she's carrying. Jace knows he shouldn't ask too many questions, but when strange sounds start coming from inside the large, metal box, he can't help but check it out. Big mistake. To make matters worse, he's being pursued by unknown ships - who want that cargo.

Luke Daniels is great although his voice for 1 female character made her sound manly, he brings this already great story into a new dimension.
This has a hint of stargate in terms of ancient tech and who can use it, the story evolves, it has most of firefly in terms of bad guys and the government and jobs although the author hadn't expanded on it.
well worth a listen.
1 gripe I would have with the author, would be the fact that he could have most answers answered by the AI at the start which is the right way to do it in real life. rather than getting the information after they blunder into something they are not prepared for.

When I was four years old, my inept biological parents decided they wanted to summon a demon. They planned to summon one and control him so they could gain riches. However, they didn't realize you can't control a demon, you can only enter into an agreement with them, and so their demon was able to walk out of the summoning circle that they didn't close properly.

New angle on Revelations so that's cool.
Where are the proof readers, the editors that would cut unnecessary retelling and recapping every now and than about what's going on or about our main protagonist.

A little juvenile language, from the protagonist to the friend of his who from the dialogue sounds like a surfer weed smoker and a little dense.
Our protagonist is a bad trainer and cant keep any secrets especially sense that abodon angel or whatever his name is said how important it is that the seals not be revealed of who they were and where they were located and the first thing he does is tell everyone.

Stupid, I really had to power through the ending because my mind was like enough stop, since my New Years resolution is to finish things no matter how ridiculous I did it.
The narration was pretty good without the narration I'd give it a 2 for contradictory.

It's crass gun porn filled with fanboy pandering action movie references. Do you like action movies? Do you like dark, edgy, hard-boiled heroes? Do you like fully automatic weapons blasting guys' heads off? How about product endorsements that are awkwardly placed between depictions of intense violence? Yeah? Then this book is for you!

WOW, after listening to this I'm scratching my head, what? unique characters like in the movie ninja scroll, some laughs and delivers action on a grand scale. the narrator was good not the best but good better than some, his voice for the main character is way too deep for 18 but others he was spot on you definitely knew who is who.
My problem is with the crazy story, it's interesting even to the end but some stuff just doesn't make sense real people but bullet proof, not vampires but able to rip peoples arms off stuff like that , you might have to stretch that creative brain a little, like on some Animations actually if you think this story as an Animation it would make sense.
But the story is coherent so it's got that for it.

Dodge Dalton's stories about the adventures of Captain Zane Falcon have made both the author, and his iconic protagonist, famous. Maybe a little too famous. When a diabolical villain, wielding a fantastic power unearthed in the ruins of a forgotten civilization, kidnaps the president, he has only one demand...a fight with America's greatest hero. There's just one problem: Falcon doesn't exist. Or does he?

A Different spin on Atlantis & conquering etc., it reads like a B movie some twist and turns and Jet Packs lots of them now I want one too. Very non-stop action and character building and discovery of characters along the way. The narration was good not the best but good and not horrible like some. Worth a try remember the narration changes for the next two books and the other review for it says he's great so ya.

The story of this book is actually pretty good the author and especially the narrator had me engrossed the whole time. towards the end of the story I was hoping for more characters but just within this 2 hour story it felt like I listened to a cohesive story.

Note to author the art work on this book is what got me to buy this, I've noticed a lack of fantasy art on others almost past them thinking it's a different series.
If you can also bundle your other 3 works into 1 I'm game like what you started.

Deep in the overgrown swamps of Florida, where humans rarely dare to enter, lives a race of creatures long thought to be only the stuff of legend. They walk upright but are stronger, taller and more brutal than any man. And when a small boat of tourists, held captive by a fleeing criminal, accidentally kills one of the swamp dwellers’ young, the creatures are filled with a terrifyingly human emotion - a merciless lust for vengeance that will paint the trees red with blood.

When anything goes wrong at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School, from the hexing of Bus Six to the mysterious disappearance of the kindergarten gerbil, it's sure to have a Herdman behind it. The Herdmans are more than famous, they're outlaws. They smoke cigars, lie, and set fire to things, and that's only when they bother to come to school!

The lives of six female superheroes and the girlfriends of superheroes. A ferocious riff on women in superhero comics. From the New York Times best-selling author Catherynne Valente comes a series of linked stories from the points of view of the wives and girlfriends of superheroes, female heroes, and anyone who's ever been "refrigerated": comic book women who are killed, raped, brainwashed, driven mad, disabled, or had their powers taken so that a male superhero's storyline will progress.

I have to say that I'm a little disappointed even though the stories of the individual women was told to make you feel bad for them. all I can say is, I don't, actions have consequences and all that told there story didnt seem like they that I was more interested in the world that the dead inhabit there. what are the roles of the gargoyles it's half baked for me wish more thought was put in beside the support group. performance was great. surprised keep up the good work.
