In 2031 mankind's survival instinct is put to the test when a civil war in China spirals into a global conflict. Nations are torn apart. Millions are killed. And for many, like Air Force pilot Alec Killian, survival will mean shedding some of their flesh in exchange for biotech and machine. Is "Project Prometheus" the ultimate corruption of nature? Or the birth pains of a new chapter in human evolution?
Follow Killian's journey as the origins of the war are detailed, battles are waged... and lives are lost... in this first chapter of the Titanium Rain saga, adapted from the graphic novel by Josh Finney and Kat Rocha.
A typical mix of militant jargon mixed in with sound effects of explosions and gunfire. It was entertaining, but the sound setting were Way Way off, the dialogue was soft so I crank the volume, and the next scene opens with gunfire and yelling!

Actually, this was a pretty good short. In the future, the US and its allies are embroiled against China, which has been taken over by a nationalist general called "The Emperor" after the terrorist assassination of the Chinese premier. The story focuses on the pilots of the planes being used to wage the battle in the skies -- cyborgs due to the taxing demands that the aircraft take on the human body. I think the real downfall of this audiobook is its sound production quality. It is poorly mixed -- the sound levels jump up and down and conversations are sometimes audible, sometimes not, especially when intermixed with the booming sounds of air combat. If the producers of this book choose to make a second volume, I hope that they switch production studios.
