Three years after losing his father in a fire, 13-year-old Jethro Black (his friends call him Jet) finds himself embarking upon a mysterious adventure when, while attending his grandfather's funeral, a strange man walks up and gives him an envelope and a key. As a mystery begins to unfold, Jet and his best friend Travis are about to discover that there is more to the world than meets the eye, and they just may have a crucial role to play in the outcome of humanity's future. Nebulous is the first release in the young adult science fiction book series, Jet Black. Warning. This book series will take you on an adventurous ride through the world of Jet Black. Here you will inevitably find various religious and spiritual undertones woven into the story. Some of these are subtle, some are not. Others are hidden as clues to a larger picture. While some readers may value these as hidden treasures, others may choose to see them differently. If you are easily offended by religious and/or spiritual content, I suggest you turn back now. If however, you are not afraid of such things, by all means... Proceed at your own risk.

I am really enjoying the story so far. I have finished the book and am looking forward to the next one. The narrator really brought the story alive in my mind's eye. I really enjoyed the different kid voices, it really brought those kid adventure scenes to life. I would and will be recommending this audiobook to others. Thanks.

The essential elements for building a world. Roleplaying games and fantasy fiction are filled with rich and fascinating worlds: the Forgotten Realms, Glorantha, Narnia, R'lyeh, Middle-earth, Barsoom, and so many more. It took startling leaps of imagination as well as careful thought and planning to create places like these: places that readers and players want to come back to again and again.

This is a great tool for any word builder. I make home brew worlds for RPGs and while listening to this it just filled me with more and more ideas. I will continue to come back to this book whenever I am preparing to create a new world. The narrator was very engaging. The way he read kept my attention which, I'm my opinion, is what you need in a compilation of essays.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, the Cthulhu old god theme is something most of my friends would like.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Avery, the main character. He is a deep character with a dark past. In a book that has so much story going on an a hum drum main character would work, it is cool that the main character has such bag to bring with him.

Which character – as performed by Ray Greenley – was your favorite?

Janx the side-kickish action hero whaler of the story. Mr. Greenley really brings this character to life.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The book is really messed up at parts. Both the writer and the narrator do a great job at immersing you into the books environment, which if you like description in your fantasy horror your in for a treat.

Any additional comments?

I love the fact that this was in a collection. Definitely picking up book 3.
