Magic in an Audio.

My job forces Me into long stretches of driving. I listen to at least 8 to 12 hours of audio per night. I have listened to The Name of the Wind. The Girl with all the Gifts. The Stand. The Dark Tower, You name it.

This audiobook is better. Aside from armored dwarves, riding T-Rexs, this book holds the same spark which made the Sandlot a hit.

It has goosebumps, on multiple occasions, I got them. The action is grade A.

But there is more than that. The Author does not sacrifice any ingredient. There is no meandering around. Yet there is also no rushed characters or situations to make way for the plot.

If you gorge on Authors like Stephen King or Patrick Rothfus and dig their books, but just wish things were nit together more precisely.... wishing you didn't have to sludge through a down day where everything in their story was just stale. Give this a listen.

All of the fat is trimmed from this Author's stories... yet the marbling is quite rich indeed. Dig in people.... dig in.

What's not to love

Great book, fits in nicely with the GFL series. It gets a little slow in the middle but the end it certainly worth it!!!

Excellent addition to the Sigler-verse

The story is sadly on the short side but it was excellent, as is standard for all of Scott Sigler's books. I can't wait for the next book!

A spectacular addition

A must read for the fans of GFL.
The story is solid and can stand alone without reading any other book.
Scott's performance is excellent, enhanced by a quality sound editor.
If something like the final chapters could organically find its way into book 6/7, oh what a special sight that would be again.

awesome addition to series!

great story that takes place in the GFL universe. Does has some characters pop up from main series but great stand alone story by itself. I can't wait for a continuation of the rider. it's too good to just stop with one book!!!

Little People Can Kick Ass

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to anyone who is a Scott Sigler fan and his books. The content of this book overlaps with the GFL series, and Title Fight series. I really liked the combat and the detail regarding the construction of ancient large animals into new high tech fighting machines!

What did you like best about this story?

The main character and the opportunity for the sports league he started to grow into something big.

Which character – as performed by Scott Sigler – was your favorite?

I think the younger Eon character, who could be destined to be the best fighter.

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

The book made me laugh, and I did feel bad when the mounts died.

Any additional comments?

I would've really liked to read more detail regarding how the mounts are developed. Also more detail when riders are swallowed and being stuck inside a mount.
