In a world full to bursting with would-be heroes, Jim couldn't be less interested in saving the day. His fireballs fizzle. He's awfully grumpy. Plus, he's been dead for about 60 years. When a renegade necromancer wrenches him from eternal slumber and into a world gone terribly, bizarrely wrong, all Jim wants is to find a way to die properly, once and for all. On his side, he's got a few shambling corpses, an inept thief, and a powerful death wish. But he's up against tough odds....

Loved the story. It was fun and an original take on a story you have heard before.

The audio quality was lacking. Volume went up and down. You could here the pages be turned in the background. The narrators tone was periodically off, like he had just started the recording after a long day at the office and he just wanted to sit down and have a beer.

It’s a shame. The story was enjoyable and the narrator in most places did a good job, there were just enough issues that it took I out of the story.

Being a sentient spaceship really should be more fun. But after spreading out through space for almost a century, Bob and his clones just can't stay out of trouble. They've created enough colonies so humanity shouldn't go extinct. But political squabbles have a bad habit of dying hard, and the Brazilian probes are still trying to take out the competition. And the Bobs have picked a fight with an older, more powerful species with a large appetite and a short temper.

Loved the story, and the performer brought the story to life.

If you read the first book, do yourself a favour and listen to to the end of the trilogy.

United Nations Special Operations Command sent an elite expeditionary force of soldiers and pilots out on a simple recon mission, and somehow along the way they sparked an alien civil war. Now the not-at-all-merry band of pirates is in desperate trouble, again. Their stolen alien starship is falling apart, thousands of light years from home. The ancient alien AI they nicknamed Skippy is apparently dead, and even if they can by some miracle revive him, he might never be the same.

Cant get enough. Fantastic story and fantastic voice... Between them every character is real. Have been in tears at the low moments in the story, and been rolling around unable to stop laughing at the high moments. Going to get the next book in the series now.
