On the edge of the galaxy, a diplomatic mission to an alien planet takes a turn when the Legionnaires, an elite special fighting force, find themselves ambushed and stranded behind enemy lines.

Great story line, all the way until the end.
My only complaint is that they are too short. For a complaint, it certainly implies a positive tone. Keep 'Em coming.

From the Audie-nominated narrator of The Martian. In eleven years' time, a million members of an alien race will arrive at Earth. Years before they enter orbit, their approach will be announced by the flare of a thousand flames in the sky, their ships' huge engines burning hard to slow them from the vast speeds needed to cross interstellar space. These foreboding lights will shine in our night sky like new stars, getting ever brighter until they outshine even the sun, casting ominous shadows and banishing the night until they suddenly blink out.

I initially purchased this audiobook due to the subject matter and length, I finished it in record time due to its outstanding storyline. I recommend it highly to anyone who enjoys science fiction that is longer than a commercial. LOL

Seventeen years ago William Wisting led the investigation into one of Norway's most notorious criminal cases, the murder of young Cecilia Linde. When it is discovered that evidence was falsified, he is suspended from duty. It looks like a man has been wrongly convicted, and suddenly the media are baying for blood. Wisting, who has spent his life hunting criminals, is now the hunted.

While the plot and characters are just fine, the story dragged on. Personally being as far from a cop story aficionado, the "who done it" was apparent about halfway through the story. Certainly much better than I Could do... I'm not ready to buy the collection. Just my opinion, it definitely doesn't mean I'm right.

Story ended short, plenty of sequels I'm sure. Darn nice story though, the subsequent ones may be hard to resist. Just keep them full of life and I will probably be a customer.

Feeling distant and lost, Gwen has journeyed to Atlantis, a tolerant and benevolent kingdom governed by the Sorceresses, and a place known to be a safe haven to all female time-travelers.

Fun continuation of the big story. Certainly no physics lessons, but that's exactly why I enjoyed the book. Narration was a continuation of language and tone, easy to follow from one to the next. I'd personally recommend the trilogy and begin at page 1 of book 1.

The USS Vicksburg is returning home when the crew comes upon a lifeboat bearing a dead Somali pirate who shows signs of torture. Questions immediately arise: Who is this man, and which ship did he come from? Who tortured him? Soon Red Cell analysts Kyra Stryker and Jonathan Burke have traced the dead man back to an Iranian ship currently bound for Venezuela - and the ship appears to have dangerous, radioactive cargo on board.

Maybe the next one can be extra long, good books usually end too quickly. Just when I'm not ready to give up the characters.

The year is 2108, and the North American Commonwealth is bursting at the seams. For welfare rats like Andrew Grayson, there are only two ways out of the crime-ridden and filthy welfare tenements, where you’re restricted to 2,000 calories of badly flavored soy every day. You can hope to win the lottery and draw a ticket on a colony ship settling off-world, or you can join the service. With the colony lottery a pipe dream, Andrew chooses to enlist in the armed forces for a shot at real food, a retirement bonus, and maybe a ticket off Earth.
