Once I started listening it was hard to stop.
Well written and beautifully performed.
I'll be looking out for further works from both them.

Robert Garry, ex-military officer, wants nothing more than to maintain his integrity and his team's safety despite a career change to pirate leader, but a cargo freighter he targets proves to be holding much more than he bargained for. Will he escape with his own life, let alone the lives of his crew?

I'll be looking for more of the same from the author and the narrator. This was a rollercoaster ride from start to finish. I'd like to hear more about the characters and their backgrounds.

The desert planet Arrakis, called Dune, has been destroyed. Now, the Bene Gesserit, heirs to Dune's power, have colonized a green world - and are tuning it into a desert, mile by scorched mile. Chapterhouse Dune is the last book Frank Herbert wrote before his death and stunning climax to the epic Dune legend that will live on forever.

More than 3,000 years have passed since the first events recorded in Dune. Only one link survives with those tumultuous times: the grotesque figure of Leto Atreides, son of the prophet Paul Muad'Dib, and now the virtually immortal God Emperor of Dune. He alone understands the future, and he knows with a terrible certainty that the evolution of his race is at an end unless he can breed new qualities into his species.

The Foundation novels of Isaac Asimov are one of the great masterworks of science fiction. Unsurpassed for their unique blend of nonstop action, daring ideas, and extensive world-building, they chronicle the struggle of a courageous group of men and women to preserve humanity's light against an inexorable tide of darkness and violence.

If you want to hear an epic science fiction story this is the one. Asimov creates a complete galaxy with immense characters and worlds which pull you into their story. I continue to come back to this series again and again for over thirty years and it still gives me a sense of awe every time. Scott Brick is also a complete narrator bringing Asimov's series to life.
