This book was a really good listen. Nolan must return to the location of his youth and face the demon's and reunite with those who helped shape him. The entire book is one long running adventure with interspersed points of remembering and reconnecting. I found the book to be one I could hardly put down and wanted to listen to the end even when it was well past time to stop for the day.

The narration was outstanding. The character of the AI is done really well.

This book was helpful in learning how to correctly pronounce words. It used phrases that you would normally use in everyday activities to teach you and to reinforce it. You are given a chance to respond to ensure you say the words and phrases correctly. Good for when you are traveling.

It seems that family secrets can lead to murder. This book took a little effort to get into but ended up being very good.
The book brought out how life in England was following the American civil war. The historical aspect added a different angle to the book. The mystery of the book was great. You really could not find out who was at fault until the very end.

The narration was very good.

This book was a refreshing surprise. It involved a flawed character who had struggled with failure and suffered with the feeling that he had failed his own brother. He was forced to do things he did not want to do in order that one day he might be able to redeem his brother. Though the brother did not play any part in the story other than a long term goal of the character.

He is continuously confronted by criminals who have equipment that they should not be able to obtain and is given assignments he finds contrary to the best interest of the world. The book is back to back adventure and is very well narrated with many distinct voices and a great deal of enthusiasm. I had never listened to Bronson Pinchot narrate before but now look forward to more of his works. Neither had I read or listened to any books by Andy Peloquin but look forward to this series.

This is book two of the series. I begins full bore and keeps on going. There are many times I did not think the characters would survive and when they did it was a real relief. The way that multiple threads are woven together is outstanding also.

The Narrator does a really fantastic job with the voices of the many characters.

This book continues the adventures of characters from the main series. They are so real even when they are irritating as all get out. The excitement always keeps you wondering what is going to happen next and never leaves you with the answer until the very end. Love Terresa's writing as well as John's narration.

This book lived up to the billing of Space Opera Noir. It involved the interrelationship of 5 corporate organizations as someone tries to take them down and dismantle the entire solar infrastructure.

The book is gritty, as well as humorous as it details each of the characters.

It is well written and easy to listen to. The narrator does and outstanding job.
