Rhett Calibos is a bounty scrapper, his life as an indentured soldier a welcome alternative to imprisonment on a penal colony. A man haunted by his past, Rhett throws himself into the work, his only sanctuary. Sokol Targe is the leader of a mech warrior squad stationed aboard an ancient and deadly warship and conducts violent raids on behalf of a Red List commune. As these troubled men endure furious combat across the ragged edges of civilization, neither of them realize they've become entangled in the deeper mysteries of necrospace.

This book had a lot of action, and a good story. There were times I had to go back and forth to figure out where I was, but overall I really enjoyed listening to this book and will definitely be buying the previous books in the series as well. The narrator was good and represented the characters well. This is worth a credit.

I love anything do to with Greek Gods. The author did a wonderful job of creating an interesting premise and story around them. I thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait for the other books in the series to be available on Audible.

The narration was a little over the top for me. Very melodramatic ALL the time. I don't mind melodrama when the story calls for it, but when it is overdone, it starts to bother me. I realize this is a subjective thing, though, so I don't want to ding the rating too much for this. And it obviously is not something that should keep anyone from using a credit on this one. Still very enjoyable and worth a listen.

I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

My name's Morgan Rook, supernatural detective, undercover agent, odd jobs man. I take out the nightmares, demons, and werewolves. Guys like us call them Nightkind. I had one final job. There's always one. This time a call to eliminate a cruel, rogue vampire, named Mr. Tudor. Simple, right? Sure. Until the bodies started piling up in a new wave of vicious occult killings leading scarily close to my own front door, sparking a series of deadly events that would make my years of fighting the Nightkind look like a cakewalk.

Any additional comments?

The main character, Morgan Rook, is a real bad a$$... a la Harry Dresden. The book starts out fast with big fight scenes and the action continues throughout the book. A really fun read. I think Morgan could have been developed a little earlier in the book... he is pulling out these awesome powers in fights but we don't have any reference for them so I felt a little lost early on. The author does develop him as the book goes on and after finishing I realized some of that delay was probably by design. The author wordsmiths very well. I really enjoyed the writing style.The narrator was pretty good. Not awesome, but not bad either.Overall I recommend the book if you like this type of urban fantasy genre.I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

More than 3,000 years have passed since the first events recorded in Dune. Only one link survives with those tumultuous times: the grotesque figure of Leto Atreides, son of the prophet Paul Muad'Dib, and now the virtually immortal God Emperor of Dune. He alone understands the future, and he knows with a terrible certainty that the evolution of his race is at an end unless he can breed new qualities into his species.

My least favorite Dune book

Overall
1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 08-27-08

I thought Dune was outstanding. The next two were good, but not outstanding. This last installment i just didn't get. I would skip multiple chapters just to get through it until i finally just listened to the last hour to know what happened. This is just one mans opinion, but I thought I should post it since all the other opinions seem to be contrary to mine.

I'd also like to say that Brian's prequels are all outstanding reads/listens.
