Wounded and war-weary, Frank Bishop returns to New York City to train a boy who could fulfill a 6,000-year old prophecy and save the world from Jessie and her plans for Armageddon. While Frank heals and begins the boy’s training, threats loom on two fronts in the battle against the Fallen. Jessie’s descent into darkness is complete, and her quest to free the King of the Fallen from the Second Death brings her to the desert of Arizona. There, one of the Fallen with the power to eat the souls of man was imprisoned centuries ago.

I recieved this book free of charge for an honest review. still cant get into this series. the girl acts like the 14 year old she's supposed to be. the good guys are kinda dull and honestly I think my biggest issue is the narration, I just cant get into his tone. can kill time but isn't really my type of book

Naaygi found them waiting for her - as she somehow knew they would be - as the cage doors opened, their forward-facing eyes glinting the same hue as the lights in the sky and their dark, storm-colored bodies held absolutely still (even as another animal joined them and brought their number to four). She even knew somehow what they were, that they were a breed of carnosaur the "evolved" humans had called nanotyrannosaurs, the "Pygmy Tyrants", and that one of them, the one with the brand upon its tail, the leader, even had a name - Napoleon.

I recieved this book free of charge for an honest review. time is messed up by aliens or something( I didn't quite decide what they really were) this could have been a cool little miniseries on scifi though the books was quite short. dinosaurs are in the present and a band of humans fight for their survival. it's kinda like the walking dead with dinos instead of zombies. it's a fun listen but honestly it's to short for much to happen kind of a single day journal entry, give it shot if you want to kill a couple hours

Charlie7 is the progenitor of a mechanical race he built from the ashes of a dead world - Earth. He is a robot of leisure and idle political meddling - a retirement well-earned. Or he was, until a human girl named Eve was dropped in his lap. Geneticists have restored Earth's biome and have begun repopulation. But primate cloning is in its infancy; human cloning is banned. Far from a failed genetics experiment, Eve is brilliant, curious, and heartbreakingly naïve about her species' history.

I recieved this book free of charge for an honest review. I didn't really care for this, I got the impression it was a secret underground world, enlightened upperworld type book. what I got out of it was a game of cowboys and Indians on a different world with aspects of espionage and government lotteries. it wasnt a bad idea honestly I just not my thing, and would probably be easier to get into on paper.

The thrilling conclusion to The Extinction Files is finally here! In 2003, the first human genome was sequenced. But the secrets it held were never revealed. The truth was discovered 30 years ago, almost by accident. Dr. Paul Kraus had spent his entire career searching for what he called humanity's lost tribes - human ancestors who had gone extinct. When Kraus compared the DNA samples of the lost tribes with our own, he found a pattern of changes: a code. At the time, the technology didn't exist to unravel what it meant. Kraus hid his work and disappeared.

I think, well paced book, performance wasnt bad story the tech aspect was kind of intriguing, though even after the second book I still couldn't figure out what was so important about stopping the last phase from happening, how I understood it that would be the only aspect that was beneficial and the other 2 phases were already in effect, but it was a big deal to stop the last part from happening, maybe the last book will shed light.

I recieved this book free of charge for an honest review. anything to do with quantum physics tends to be cool in some way. the main character was dumber down so the average listener can fallow along and be about as informed as he is. I like the admission that the book isn't written by a scientist but by someone that did some research and built a story around it. though I was waiting the whole book to find out what a gat was I the title which never came up.

I recieved this book free of charge for an honest review. I tried to get into but I just couldn't. It was kinda slow with not much actually happening and when it did it was rather anticlimactic. The voices kinda bugged me. not the narrator so much but the impersonations I found irritating. I'll try the second book maybe it'll be more appealing, this wouldn't be bad as kinda of a teen/young adult book and probably better to read than to hear in order to sink into it
