Roak has a plan. It is not a good plan. It is not an easy plan. But it is a plan. And with a crew he doesn't want, a nemesis who is always one step ahead, and the power of the Galactic Fleet about to come down on him with all its might, Roak is going to need every ounce of his experience and skill as the galaxy's greatest and deadliest bounty hunter to execute the plan. If his infinite enemies don't execute him first!

If you liked the other books in this serries you will like this one. If you have not listened to the others I would highly recommend starting with the Frist book in this serries. If you like an action packed Sci-fi adventure with plot twists, bounty hunters, alliens and other crazy stuff. Then this is the serries you want to listen to.

An interesting story with a great caste of characters. The plot is gripping and well paced, the world has depth to it. Lots of action in a Sci-fi setting with a favourite bounty hunter Roak can't go wrong with that and now with his team there to bounce off it just get better.

The narration is soild, clear and easy to listen too. Each character especially Roak is very well voiced and brought to life through the narration.

This is another great book in this series and I can highly recommend it.

Soon, hero players are going to come to kill him....

Having the main character spawn as the bad guy is an interesting take on the LitRPG story.

The writing is good and the story flows well.

The main character seems to have plenty of depths to them and the effects of their situation on then and the fight against their new nature is well handled.

The narration is soilid and I did not notice any errors in the recording.

All and all an interesting story that I would like to find out what happens next in the digital world if a bit short.

In a world where dragons rule the sky's and humans have to hide underground, behind thick walls or camouflage we are treated to an interesting and well written story.

The plot moves at a good pace keeping you listening to find out what happens next.

The whole book being from one veiw point character helps keep the reader invested in their stroy and makes their struggles seem more relatable.

The world seems well crafted and as if it has a lot more to it than we get to see.

The characters are well written and have a lot of depth to them.

The narration is top notch, is easy to listen to. In both slow moments and active combat the narration fits perfectly.

Each character has their own unique voice that really helps their mood and personality shine though.

There was no recording errors that I noticed.

This was a great listen and I can highly recommend this book.

I am looking forward to seeing what happens next in this interesting world.

Another great sci-fi action story. The story builds on the previous ones in this series so I would recommend starting at the beginning instead of this book as it is great to see the history and past events from the earlier books still carry weight as the plot moves forward in this one.

Great action, combat and plot. What more could you ask for in this bounty hunter sci-fi story.

The characters are well developed and written, each of them have their own unique personality.

The narration is clear, easy to listen to and very much suits the tone of the story. Each character has their own voice that really enhances thier words conveying their emotion and attitude. I did not find any errors or problems with the audio.

All in all this is well worth a listen and I can easily recommend it to anyone that likes action sci-fi.

I can't wait to find out what happens next.

Another good listen in this series, I would have to advise listing to the others in the series first so you have a better idea what's going on. As with all the books in this series there is a good story and characters both enhanced by wounderful narration. If the sound of magic and shape-shifters mixed with real world type spy, military, crime and terrorism sounds of interest to you then this series is definitely for you.

I very much enjoyed my time with this book.

Missy and her friends have convinced government officials that using supernaturals can indeed be managed. Such activities must, of course, be disguised or kept secret. The greater concern now is whether any enemies of the US might have supernaturals and, if so, how to deal with them. Meanwhile, Missy enjoys day-to-day life back at the academy until learning a mob war puts some of her friends at risk; she once again confronts the local crime boss, only to end up helping him.

Supernatural creatures, terrorism, magic and well developed characters. This story is well written, well paced and will keep you listing to it from start to finish.

The narration fits the book perfectly and is easy to listen to. I noticed no errors in the recording. Each character is well voiced and their emotions and personalities really shine through.

Before you listen to this book I recommend you listen to the previous books first. You can listen to it on its own but you will get more out of it if you have all the background knowledge and history of the characters.

It is interesting to see both how the characters and the world have changed as the books went on.

I found this book interesting to listen to and can recommend it.

A solid story with good narration.

The writing is good, well paced and with characters with plenty of personality. The in game parts are easy to understand and does not go in to too much detail about the systems in game. Letting it be more about the action, conflicts and characters.

The narration is easy to listen to and clear. Each character is enhanced with unique voices and plenty of emotion. I would happily listen to more books with this narrator.

In a world where everything is controlled by those who have the most powerful characters in a game it can be hard to get by if you have work to do instead of being able to dedicate yourself to improving your character. It is an intresting lesson about what can happen if keeping power becomes more important than using it wisely.

This was an intresting listen and I can recommend it.

A well written and narrated continuation of Cammarry and Jerome's quest to find out more about their new home. Exploring more of the colony ship Conestoga and dealing with all the problems past events and the ships disrepair throws up.

The characters are well written and the dialogue and interactions between the main characters are interesting and believable.

The narration is of good quality, is easy to listen to and enhances the tension of the story. Each character sounds unique and their emotions as well as the stress of the situations just increases how engaging the story is. I did not encounter any errors in the recording.
