This was an interesting listen and kept me guessing for a time about who the killer was. The plot and characters were well written and the world building good. I thought the narrator did a good job of both the text and the production.

This is an entertaining horror/suspense story. It kept me guessing as to the reasons each character found themselves in "the game". The characters seemed well developed and changed accordingly to their changing circumstances. The writing was good and the plot moved along at a good pace with quite a few twists along the way. I thought the narrator did a good job of both the reading and production. I was given a copy of this audiobook for an honest and unbiased review.

When the main character dies, he is offered a job as a soul collector. The plot follows him as he comes to terms with his own death and learns the tricks of the trade of his new career. I found the plot and writing to be fine, and the world-building was good. The narration and production worked well. Well worth a listen if you like modern day fantasy.

When some friend find themselves cast adrift after their yacht sinks, they think they are saved when an oil rig comes into view. As you can guess, things don't go according to plan. There is quite a bit of violence and sexual content in this horror story and for me most of the characters were unlikeable. I still enjoyed the plot though with its twists and turns. It did remind me of "The Thing", so if you like that kind of story then this one might be for you. I thought the narrator did a good job of both the reading and the production.

This story follows a married woman who works for her local newspaper. After a devastating flood, she finds dead fish and begins to investigate. Meanwhile, her husband discovers that someone has been plundering a nearby Anasazi historical site. The plot goes from there into mystery, intrigue and romance.
I found the story moved along at a good pace and the writing seemed well done. The narration and production were also of a good standard.

I believe this is the first book in a series, so if you like this genre, then there is more to come.

Book 3 in this series continues to follow the survivors' struggles in a world where most of the population has died. With the new threat which was introduced in book 2, they have more threats to deal with. As with the previous books, the story moved along at a good pace and the narrator did well with the text. Well worth a listen if you enjoy horror/scifi with a twist.

Book 2 in the Fatal Reaction Series finds the survivors of an unidentified illness struggling to survive the aftermath of a world wide pandemic. They also have to deal with a mysterious arrival. I found this to be a good sequel to book one and once again the story moved along at a good pace with interesting characters. The narrator did a nice job with the text and I am looking forward to listening to the next book.

This audiobook has some interesting characters woven into the plot and the story moved along at a nice pace. It was read by the author and although I think he did a great job on the narration, I wasn't keen on the music and sound effects. Well worth a listen if you enjoy fantasy books.
