Publisher's Summary

He is the most powerful man to ever live, and therefore doomed to misery.

Ren Lewis was born with the power to control minds, hypnotize others, and read thoughts. Therefore, he is certain of one thing.

God made a mistake. No one should be born with so much power.

Sherlock Holmes meets House for a combination that makes for a brilliant anti-hero.

This 280,000-word collection is full of deceit, the paranormal, and deadly thrills. This boxed set includes The Man Behind the Monster, God's Little Monster, The Monster Inside the Monster, The Monster's Adventure, and The Monster's Death.

Book one:

A monster awoke in Ren the same year he received his gifts. At 10 years old. A prepubescent boy with the ability to control others might merely abuse this power, but Ren allowed it to corrupt him. And since he can have and do anything he wants, Ren should be happy. However, his journey teaches him that harboring so much power doesn't bring happiness, it steals it. Once this realization sets in, Ren makes up his mind to do the one thing that can bring his tortured soul some peace.

He must kill the monster.

Book two:

Ren Lewis has the life he’s always wanted: the perfect woman and the perfect job as an agent for the Lucidites, fixing problems before they happen.

And yet, he’s still miserable.

Book three:

Ren Lewis, who has faced every danger known to man, is about to meet a challenge he’s convinced has the power to undo him. When he discovers that his daughter, Adelaide, has been hiding a pregnancy, he goes into hiding himself.

Book four:

Ren Lewis has seen it all, or so he likes to think. He's encountered every danger known to man. Due to his powers as a Dream Traveler and unstoppable work ethic, he's experienced more than any human alive. But Ren is about to have a brand new experience.

Book five:

Using technology, philosophy, quantum physics, psychology, and spirituality, Ren attempts to do something that millions of people throughout history have only dreamed of.

Great Character

I had such a good time listening to Ren. He made me laugh quite often with his thoughts and attitude. Tim Campbell did a great job, voiced the character perfectly! I love how Sarah Noffke tied this in with her other series. She is developing a very interesting world!

Good read, good series

Ren: The Man Behind the Monster (Ren Series #1), my twenty-fourth read from author Sarah Noffke .
Ren: God’s Little Monster (Ren Series #2), my twenty-fifth read from author Sarah Noffke.
Ren: The Man Inside the Monster (Ren Series #3), my twenty-sixth read from author Sarah Noffke.
Ren: The Monster’s Adventure (Ren Series #3.5), my twenty-sixth read from author Sarah Noffke.
Ren: The Monster’s Death (Ren Series #4), the conclusion of the series, my twenty-seventh read from author Sarah Noffke. I’m concluding the series sequentially. A well written, interesting read, with intriguing, well developed characters. Narrator Tim Campbell’s voice was perfect for this book and added greatly to the listening enjoyment. I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reviewing it. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Brilliant set of stories

This is a truly amazing set of books detailing the life of Ren Lewis, a dream traveller and strategist who was born with some amazingly powerful gifts that are as much a curse as they are a gift. It shows us what made him the sarcastic, arrogant, abrasive, loyal, apathetic, and yet totally appealing, character that he is. At the same time the author draws the listener into the fascinating world of Dream Traveller society; a world full of thrilling danger, action, innovation and gifted, unique individuals. The evolution of the various characters, the humour, heartbreak, intrigue and suspense will keep you absorbed until the very end. It is a heart wrenching, hair pulling, breath taking series with many twists and turns in the various plots. The growth and change in the characters, and the roller coaster of emotions the author takes you on is simply mesmerizing.
The narrator fits Ren’s character to a tee. His excellent British accent, nuances and the deep, sexy baritone of Tim Campbell's voice portrays Ren perfectly. He brings the character to life and reveals that underlying sexiness that is so appealing in this character. As a narrator, Tim Campbell is the master of accents, flowing seamlessly from one to another, no matter if the character is male or female. He seems to do all the voices equally well.
Ren is one of those characters that feels totally real to you and he stays in your head long after the book is finished. His caustic wit, arrogance, dry sarcastic comments, brilliant mind and flawed personality has kept us laughing, made you want to strangle him, but has also caused our hearts to bleed. The amount of emotion that this character and these stories have been able to elicit from readers is a testament to how well written these books are and how fully developed this character is. Not only is there great characters but the storylines in each book are amazing. I am sad that this series is ended and that I will no longer get to hear that snarky British accent as I listen to Sarah's future books.

Glad I continued with the story

Title: Ren Series: The Complete Boxed Set
Author: Sarah Nofke
Format: Audio
Narrator: Tim Campbell
Genre: Paranormal, thriller, political, humor
Standalone/Part of a Series: This is the complete Ren Series but it's obviously connected to a larger universe which I haven't read but still was able to follow Ren's story
POV: Ren
Steam Level: Clean
4/5

Unlike some stories Ren did not suck me in the from the beginning. It took me a while to get into this story and enjoy the character. Overall I'm glad I listened to this story in the box set rather than individually and I wouldn't be opposed to reading other stories featuring the other dream travelers. I enjoyed how Ren's character evolved while still maintaining his true characteristics. I'm glad I gave the story a chance.

I received this audiobook for free from the author. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Don't waste your time

The premise is interesting but the pace is slow and boring. The characters are one dimensional and tiresome. The narrator 's voice grated on my nerves. I gave up on this book and stopped listening. I'm glad it was shared with me and I didn't waste a credit.
