On humanity's first extra-solar mission, the exploration vessel Magellan, or, as she prefers, "Maggie", discovers an alien artifact. Deciding that finding advanced alien life is too important to ignore, Captain Allison Ridgeway chooses to return to Earth while ordering her crew to reverse engineer technology far beyond anything back home. Meanwhile, at mission control, the governments struggle to maintain the existence of aliens a secret while also combating bureaucracy, the military industrial complex, and everyone else who wants a piece of what could skyrocket humanity into a new technological age.

I didn't struggle through any part of this. there were enough science, comedic timings and plot twists to keep me wanting to finish listening.

actioned packed from the start. a little hicup with polical power plays in the family. but that didn't last long. well worth the price. I'm stopping here in the series since someone can't make up Thier mind on the narrator.

Being a sentient spaceship really should be more fun. But after spreading out through space for almost a century, Bob and his clones just can't stay out of trouble. They've created enough colonies so humanity shouldn't go extinct. But political squabbles have a bad habit of dying hard, and the Brazilian probes are still trying to take out the competition. And the Bobs have picked a fight with an older, more powerful species with a large appetite and a short temper.

A cursed druid, blackmailed by a faery queen to find a missing magic rock. Let's just hope they don't hack the druid off...for everyone's sake. Name's Colin McCool. Folks call me the Junkyard Druid. I hate that name. Despite my last name, I'm not "cool" like the other hunters in town. I don't run an occult bookstore, I've never owned a Harley, and I didn't inherit a family fortune passed down through generations of hunters before me. And I kind of have this curse on me that's messed up my life.

I can't stand the poor me types. If the characters are in a state of sorrow the whole time forget it! I tried listening through 4 chapters and couldn't finish the book.

it reminds me of WB's Supergirl. it's not a good origin story. I was very frustrated by the short stories trying to be one big epic character reveal.

Absolutely excellent writing.
The only thing that was annoying to me was Vanto's accent. I didn't care for the fake southern accent.
