Meet the galaxy's unluckiest outlaws. Carl Ramsey is an ex-Earth Navy fighter pilot turned con man. His ship, the Mobius, is home to a ragtag crew of misfits and refugees looking to score a big payday but more often just scratching to pay for fuel. The crew consists of his ex-wife (and pilot), a drunkard, four-handed mechanic, a xeno-predator with the disposition of a 120kg housecat, and the galaxy's most-wanted wizard.

On Ludus, life is often cheap. Nora's childhood hadn't given her many options. With nowhere else to go after losing her family, she joined an old friend in a street gang and found an unlikely home there. But unfortunately, tragedy is about to befall Nora. Grudges from the distant past and movements of shadowy organizations may take away everything she is familiar with and all that she holds dear...possibly even her life. Danger has never stopped her before, but survival may require escaping her old life and embarking on an insane, desperate journey.

The world is falling to the burning shadow of the Possessed and only the power of a battle mage can save it. But the ancient bond with dragonkind is failing. Of those that answer a summoning too many are black. Black dragons are the enemy of humankind. Black dragons are mad. Falco Dante is a weakling in a world of warriors, but worse than this, he is the son of a madman. Driven by grief, Falco makes a decision that will drive him to the brink of despair. As he tries to come to terms with his actions Falco follows his friends to the Academy of War.

My son picked this book out. I wasn't really expecting that much. but I ended up really enjoying the book. I found myself feeling for the characters it was honestly upset when Badness befell them. I'm going to have to watch out for the next when he puts out and I guess read the other one he has is out.

In a world full of super powers, Felix has a pretty crappy one. He has the ability to modify any item he owns. To upgrade anything. Sounds great on paper. Almost like a video game. Except that the amount of power it takes to actually change, modify, or upgrade anything worthwhile is beyond his abilities. With that in mind, Felix settled into a normal life. A normal job. His entire world changes when the city he lives in is taken over by a super villain. Becoming a country of one city. A city state.

Mother and warrior. Scholar and spy. Rebel and hero. Set in a magical world of terror and wonder, this audiobook is a deeply felt epic of courage and war, in which the fates of these three characters intertwine - and where ordinary people become heroes, and their lives become legend.

I Want to like this book. The parts of the book I can understand, read by the always awesome Luke Daniels are a new and different flavor from Kevin Hearne, and I have enjoyed those parts of the book. However, Xe Sands is hard to understand at speaking volume. I also could not differentiate between the first two character voices. I had to turn my car stereo up loud enough that it was uncomfortable to listen, just to understand what Sands was reading. This Audio book needs to be re-read by someone who can enunciate, or remastered to clarify Sands voice. either way I am disappointed by Xe Sands performance in this audio book.

Nate Temple's all-consuming quest to avenge his parents is temporarily put on hold when shape-shifting dragons invade St. Louis. And perhaps cow-tipping the Minotaur for answers might not have been Nate's smartest opening move, because now every flavor of supernatural thug from our childhood nightmares is gunning for him. Nate learns that the only way to save his city from these creatures is to murder his best friend.

I really enjoyed the story.However the narrator's Howard Cosell esque reading made this story difficult to listen to. he added pauses and inflections that just didnt fit. I would say it sounds like a computer reading but that might be insulting computers.
I will buy the next book in the series but I hope he has a better narrator next time like, Branson Pinochet, Luke Daniels, or James Marsters.
