Publisher's Summary

Having saved humanity from an invading alien armada, Ian Lotus finds himself not rewarded but once again on the run - struggling to stay one step ahead of a galactic government intent on his capture.

However, you don't live as long as Lotus has - well beyond the lifespan of a normal human being - without picking up a trick or two, and Lotus is savvier than most. Catching him won't be easy. Still, his pursuers have a powerful incentive: their quarry is in possession of secrets that could reshape mankind's destiny - in particular, the fact that he's the only person capable of controlling the protective halo of weaponry known as the Chronos Ring, which is humanity's first and last line of defense against its enemies throughout the cosmos.

But human agents aren't all Lotus has to worry about. Also hot on his heels is an army of genetically-engineered horrors controlled by an exiled despot from an alternate dimension, who sees Lotus - and in particular, the Ring - as the pathway for both a return to power and the subjugation of humanity. It's up to Lotus to find a way to stop this menace, before the entire human race is enslaved.

Fun story!

I started listening to Infinity: Chronos Ring not knowing this was the second book in the series. I decided to go with it and see how I liked it from that perspective, which left me pleasantly surprised!

STORY
As the story progressed, the author did a great job recapping what was going on, so I never felt like I was lost.

The actions scenes were well portrayed and kept me interested in the story while offering amusing thought narration through the protagonist's view that give me a greater understanding of the situation.

The dangers Lotus come across during his travels were entertaining and left me on edge as Lots found clever ways to escape the ever increasing dangerous situation he found himself in. The only issue I had was with the computer character. I enjoyed the dialogue between the two characters, but some of the scenarios seemed a bit too farfetched.

Overall, I really enjoyed the story and would recommend it to anyone who loves fun science fiction.
4/5

PERFORMANCE
I had no issues with the narration. Mikael does a great job of switching between character voices for both male and female. It was a pleasure listening to this book!

Review Infinity

Ok , I purchased book 1 and it was great, so I was happy to accept book 2 in exchange for a review. It did not let me down. Our ‘hero’ leads us on another multi dimensional adventure. Earl Hardman keeps it simple, enjoyable, full of action and fun adventure. Mikael Naramore brings this to life with a great performance. I’m looking forward to book 3:-)

Compassionate AI

I thought the beginning was rather slow, with unnecessary dialog. I thought it was going to set the tone for the whole book, but the story ended up being very interesting. The few things I disliked about it were how the narrative arc seemed to completely change directions without ever wrapping back around, to do with the main characters family and we never return to see them by the end. Otherwise, the story was fun, and I rather enjoyed the AI communicating with him, as well as the roundabout ways he was able to figure things out with the AI, like exactly which places the bad guys aren't, that was fun and clever.

Another great story

I really liked this one. It was even better than the last. The chapter breaks were placed just right so I could stop and not have to remember what was going on. The narrator kept me engaged and was not tiring to listen to. This story added details to the author's universe that I hadn't missed before.

Great!!!

I really enjoyed this story, the action was fast paced, the characters were likeable and the narrator did a great job of bring this world to life.

I jumped straight into book 2 but I didn't feel lost or confused with the story line at any point, although I will be going back to book one!

I loved it!

The book was slow to start with but as the story progressed it got better. I have read other books by this author, so I was not disappointed with this one.

If you have read his other books then certain things stick out and are typical Hardman work. I noticed he tends to use somethings in all his books, like, the hero getting out of difficult situations majority of the time. You keep thinking he can't get out of this situation and the author comes up with something that saves the hero. I felt that the character seemed to be really lucky in how he manages to get out of situations however this is a fantasy and anything goes.
I love how the author always comes up with something. That is one of the reason I kept reading this book, just so I can find out how he manages to get the character out of the predicament that they are in.
I love the plot and I found some areas that are predictable and others that were not.

I love this narrator. I have listened to other books that he has narratored and I believe he is suited for this type of genre. He give the story suspense, made the characters more believeable and is able to voice multiple characters. I would highly recommend listening to other books he has narrated.
