Some scary-looking aliens have just boarded Fortuna Tau, our little asteroid mining station. Kordolians, by the looks of things. What the hell do they want with this floating rust bucket? What are they even doing here? Come to think of it, I've never seen a Kordolian up close before. They're huge and intimidating, with strange silver skin and pointed ears. They have freaky nano-armor, and they're packing a serious arsenal. We humans stand no chance against them.

I read in the entire series in one weekend and I loved it! Loved the premise and loved the stories but I was not impressed with the narrators... They did and okay job but the pacing felt off to me. I hope they pick it up a better and continue the series!

Special Operator Peter Watson's next great adventure begins at the Atlanta Aquarium when he encounters a mermaid who steals his heart. But playing with sharks and colorful fish in the Big Tank isn't nearly as dangerous, or as fun as what happens on land after their meeting behind glass.

This story is horrifying as well as terrifying. Not because of monsters but because it comes across as REAL, especially if you have been keeping an eye to world news!

Mr. Smith has a way of making not only his main characters so well rounded that they could potentially be a friend, a neighbor, or a relative but because he writes these characters with faults, demons, and the capacity of goodness, kindness and love.

But I think that it is Mr. Pinchot who is the defining key in making these characters real to me. His ability to interject the right emotions into the character takes him from being a narrator to a Master Storyteller!

There is so much wow to this book I am not sure where to begin because as always I do my best to review without giving away any major plot points...

So let me say that when the book finished I thought that my Ipod had screwed up or I had gotten a bad copy from Audible but nope... In a panic I started to email Sharon about it and then I checked her coming soon and yes there is a Jake 2 coming!

Normally this would have me in fits because I want the story, the whole story right now BUT this is Sharon Hamilton. I guess I can wait (impatiently) for the next part but it is going to be torture! Still I do recommend this book and that is because not only is Sharon an excellent writer but JD Hart! The man could read the Manhattan phone book and I would buy it... No seriously I would... He is truly a gifted storyteller!

I loved Zak and Amy's book. What can I say I am a sucker for a good high school sweetheart story! Especially with these combination of novel and novella. So you got to see these characters grow from being an adolescent infatuation to an adult love and everything that comes with it!

Any fan of Sharon Hamilton can tell you what a joy she is to read and if you are familiar with her audio books you already know what a talented story teller JD Hart is. Now I will be the first to say that my personal musical tastes runs along the lines of Korn, Disturbed, and most anything in the classic rock. So as you can imagine my shock and awe listening to the first story teller I have ever listened to sing as a part of the story. Not only does JD Hart sing but he caught my attention because he does it so well! Again another fantastic story from this talented duo!

Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead.

This story was a lot of fun to listen to. Alex is really not that much from most men that I know. He is somewhat reckless in his personal life, making connections but not really connecting past the physical but Sydney came out of left field!

Where I would assume that it is the guy that had issues with relationships it was refreshing to find it twisted!

As always the narration is a treat to the ears. J.D. Hart is excellent!
