Strength. Honor. Death. Once every year, in the city of Sunja, gladiators meet within the arena known as Sunja’s Pit. Some men enter for the lure of fortune, some for the fame, and some simply for the fight. The games continue for days until a champion is finally crowned. Or until all involved perish. The fighting season continues, and as a result, Goll prepares to participate once again in the games while one man plots revenge upon the returning Kree.

The only disappointing thing about this book is that the next one isn't released yet.
Its very easy to binge-listen to this series.

He sweats the details and works the clues.

Sergeant Amy Callan and Lieutenant Caroline Cooke have a lot in common. Both were army high-flyers. Both were acquainted with Jack Reacher. Both were forced to resign from the service. Now they're both dead. Found in their own homes, naked, in a bath full of paint. Apparent victims of an army man. A loner, a smart guy with a score to settle, a ruthless vigilante. A man just like Jack Reacher.

like the other reviews the story was enjoyable but the guys voices were awful, particularly the female ones. in fairness his narration voice was good, it's just the character voices that weren't. several times I had to force myself to continue listening because I wanted to find out what happened.

It’s only a slight exaggeration to say that the British mathematician Alan Turing (1912-1954) saved the Allies from the Nazis, invented the computer and artificial intelligence, and anticipated gay liberation by decades--all before his suicide at age forty-one. This classic biography of the founder of computer science, reissued on the centenary of his birth with a substantial new preface by the author, is the definitive account of an extraordinary mind and life.

enjoyed the story but had to force myself through it as I didn't like the narration. I felt it a bit monotone and inflection on words and sentences seemed wrong. just my oppinion though.
