Dangerous Metal

Any additional comments?

A great cyber-thriller some of the personal and societal impacts of the implants, how implants could help people with serious injuries and how they grow to cope with it - and the drama of one's past coming back to haunt them. Good narration.

The story and the Narrator were both compelling.

It deals with Cyberpunk themes, and Eva move to self empowerment through technology and people. It is not my usual read, but is was very enjoyable.

A great cyberthriller from a new athor

If you could sum up Dangerous Metal in three words, what would they be?

Cyberpunk, Thriller, Dramatic

What did you like best about this story?

It's a great modern cyberthriller that gives focus on how the new technology has a direct personal impact on the protagonist, and how it doesn't define her, but lets her define who she is.

What does Mariah Avix bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narration is excellent and very easy to listen to. Mariah has a fantastic voice for audiobooks

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The story can be a roller coaster and make you gasp at the antagonist's actions and gall. A great look at how someone handles their implants and continues to integrate back with her life.

Dangerous indeed!

I got this book in exchange for an honest opinion, and it didn't disappoint. It's not my usual kind of sci if, but it is Cyberpunk and very interesting. The world building and character depth is great.

The technology in here was really well thought out. I enjoyed the explanations and the journey that happens for the MC.

Earnie, what a horrid, horrid man. Had my skin crawling. There were so many nice twists and turns within this story that it kept me guessing. I really could identify with Eva. She's an amazing character.

I enjoyed the narration, although I have to admit it seemed to be read a little on the slow side. I wasn't sure if it was just me, but it's obviously the natural cadence of the narrator who is actually the author too. Wow, wish I could narrate my own work, extra kudos for trying. The voice is nice to listen to and the production is good. I did want the ending to be a little more satisfying, but I'm thinking there might be more from this world, so the odd question I can cope with not getting a resolution.

In all this is a great story and narration, well worth checking out. And I'll be looking for more stories from Mariah :)
