I liked that it started with some background from the 1st book the, Black Swan Planet.
Some folksy characters, some crazy, some sane. Throw in some action and it was overall a good listen.
The narrator on the other hand was excellent. A great range in characters, his voice was clear and expressive. Easy to follow.

Non stop action. Stockwell is such a fun character. A little Batman, a little James Bond, alot of ego.
But I love Bertrand the best.
Mr. Moore as narrator did an excellent job. A smooth, rich voice with an awesome range of voices. I could picture the characters so clearly.
This is long enough to really get to know the characters. you'll enjoy this adventure.

I really enjoyed this. The narrator who has become a favorite gave an excellent performance and feel he'll help make this series a winner.
If you've heard the Reacher books or watched Justified you'll see similarities, but Preacher brings justice in his own way to those who deserve it. Even though this is part of a series, it could be a standalone.
There are references to different religious cultures, some thought provoking, but never overwhelming and flow into the story smoothly.

Yes, a good short story. Characters were well built, had action and a good ending. Just what you would like on a short trip or an afternoon just chilling at home.
The narrator was ok, not bad, but a little monotone in areas. Did not take away from story.

Alot of great action and intrigue.
Gage as the MC is someone you really, really want on your side.
Mr Lennon as always is great as the narrator.
I will say that I enjoyed Mr Huggins "Dark Visions" better. That has more to do with my taste in a story line.
This is definitely worth your time if you like the covert government type story.

Orcs used to be a fearsome fighting force, and the unleashing of the Horde brought terror to humans, elves, and dwarves time and time again over the centuries. Nowadays, there aren't any more Ultimate Evils, necromancers, or dark wizards left to hire the Horde. Paug Blumpkin is smart for an orc (rather like saying he's smart for a box of hair). He's bored of training with the rest of the Horde for a war that will never come, and he's definitely tired of polishing his helmet. So he decides to set off in search of adventure, bringing along his cheerfully idiotic brother Milph, who has a regular habit of forgetting his pants.

Though not sure at 1st, within a short time I was enjoying this lighthearted, amusing adventure.
So much so that I had to rewind to get back to where I fell asleep listening. Narrator was the perfect choice to perform this story.
