The Ruhar hit us on Columbus Day. There we were, innocently drifting along the cosmos on our little blue marble, like the Native Americans in 1492. Over the horizon came ships of a technologically advanced, aggressive culture, and BAM! There went the good old days, when humans got killed only by each other. So, Columbus Day. It fits. When the morning sky twinkled again, this time with Kristang starships jumping in to hammer the Ruhar, we thought we were saved.

I don’t give 5 stars very often, but this sarcastically funny AI had me laughing out loud which is also a rare thing. I really liked the story and the narrator was great. I definitely recommend this book for more than just sci-fi enthusiasts.

Wow, there's a lot going on in this book. This is the beginning of a very good series. I really like the main character Aurora. She has had a hard life and learned to be tough and take care of herself.
The narrator did a great job. I definitely recommend this audio book for any that enjoys paranormal romance.

From #1 New York Times-best-selling author Nora Roberts comes a novel of a woman who needs nothing, a man who sees everything, and the web of deceit, greed, and danger that brings them together - and that could tear them apart… As a professional house-sitter and freelance writer, nothing ties Lila Emerson down - not her work, not a home, and definitely not a relationship. She spends her life moving from one job to the next, sometimes crashing at a friend's Manhattan apartment.

I enjoyed this audio book even more than reading it myself. The narrator did a very good job. The story is interesting and very entertaining. It grabs you right from the start and doesn't let go. I was so disappointed when it was over. I wanted to keep the story going. I highly recommend for teens through geriatrics. I can't wait for the next in the series.

The year is 2108, and the North American Commonwealth is bursting at the seams. For welfare rats like Andrew Grayson, there are only two ways out of the crime-ridden and filthy welfare tenements, where you’re restricted to 2,000 calories of badly flavored soy every day. You can hope to win the lottery and draw a ticket on a colony ship settling off-world, or you can join the service. With the colony lottery a pipe dream, Andrew chooses to enlist in the armed forces for a shot at real food, a retirement bonus, and maybe a ticket off Earth.
