Summary

In a devastated postwar planet Earth, a group of cyborg warriors gathered to search the universe for the best place for people to relocate. Some of their clients had some very particular demands. 

When Kawan Gyeon, a Korean warlord, came to visit Ethan Hunter, the cyborg's leader, Ethan knew his demands wouldn’t be like the others. Gyeon wanted to take his people to a planet with no other human settlements, one where he could set the rules himself. So, he hired Ethan and his men to find the perfect place for that. Ethan was the first one to find a planet that satisfied the conditions requested by their client - a planet with water, a perfect atmosphere, fertile soils, and ruled by an alien race that had turned the planet into some sort of welcoming grounds for those with no home. 

The Dreshanians had built several colonies they sold to those people in need who were willing to accept their rules. Apparently, everything looked perfect, but once Ethan started to dig deeper, he found out things weren’t ideal as they seemed. 

Despite all the problems, Ethan met an alien female who reminded him he was still human, that inside his powerful body, there was still a beating heart with very human needs. Neela slid into his heart, and now, he would have to find a way to keep her in his life.

sci fi romance

A nice, fast paced introduction to a new series where we're introduced to Ethan who is leader of a group of cyborgs who are hired to find plants for inhabitation as Earth is dying out. It is quickly apparent that he has a huge sense of honor - hence the "Knights of the Future". I enjoyed the storyline - knight comes to rescue damsel in distress - although I felt that the ending was rather abrupt. Otherwise, A great afternoon read / listen with a wonderful accented narrator who did a great job on this one!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Sweet Romance

I received a free review copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.
I enjoyed listening to this sweet romantic story where the cyborg saves the alien slave who was cheated out of her freedom on the planet he is checking out for his client. They were forced together at first due to the planets custom and Ethan's need to protect Nyla from harm due to failure. I would love to find out what happens next.

loved it

Ethan's on a mission to find a new planet similar to earth, he's found one and a woman to love as well. Neela's people are enslaved and hunted by a race who took over their planet but with Ethan's help maybe they'll be free.

💗

I really enjoyed the chemistry between the characters. It was well written. A nice sexy romantic read.

I liked the narrator. Although he needs to work on varying his voices.

A Cyborg Like No Other

Rating: ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Heat Rating: 🔥🔥🔥
Narrator Performance: 🎧🎧🎧🎧

ETHAN is the first book in the promising Knights of the Future series by T.J. Quinn. Although parts of the story frustrated me I found that I was also was entertained by it.

Ethan's a cyborg unlike any I've read and that's pretty cool. I like it when an author switches up the mythos of something like cyborgs, vampires, or shifters.

One thing that you need to know upfront about the story that the blurb doesn't say is that Neela is a sex slave. Ethan doesn't treat her as one and there are no real troubling scenes but I know it will bother some people.

What I found frustrating about the story is that there was a fight against the Dreshanians that wasn't resolved by the end of the book. I can only hope that it will be addressed in future instalments in the series.

Craig Bowles' narration was really pleasing. His English accent was sexy and soothing at the same time. I'll happily listen to another one of his performances.

Ethan

Loved listening to the audio book, the story was well written and the characters were interesting. The chemistry between Ethan and Neela became close.The chemistry between the two is hot and steamy. Looking for a planet to live on Earth is a dying planet.
The narrator was clear in speaking and easy to understand.

Great book

I enjoy listening to this book. Wish there’s more detail and more chance of getting to know the others but I guess I will have to check the next book. Craig Bowles did an amazing job at narrating this book!

Sexy male voice had little variation in tone

Ethan by T. J. Quinn - I read this story and enjoyed it. I attempted to listen to the story as well. The narrator's voice is deep, sexy and lovely to listen to. However, there was little to no variation to his voice as he read the book to separate the characters or to demonstrate emotion. As a result, the beautiful voice kept putting me to sleep, hence my rating. I had to restart the audio multiple times just to get through a few chapters. I think this will be my go-to audio when I need to go off into dreamland listening to a sexy voice.

Solid intro to the series

Also available on KU.

This is my first book by TJ Quinn and first narration by Craig Bowles. A truly unique take on cyborg romance. This fairly short book managed to pack in quite a bit of world building, intrigue, suspense, and several steamy scenes.

Bowles has a pleasant voice. While I wish there were more differentiating of character’s voices, it was still an enjoyable narration.

I look forward to the next release

Enjoyable Sci-fi Romance

This was an enjoyable sci-fi romance. I liked the premises of the storyline, it's well written and well-plotted. T.J. Quinn has done an outstanding job with character development, they are interesting, charming, and engaging. Ethan Hunter, a Cyborg commander, and Neela, an alien slave, meet under strained circumstances. They are great together, have a charged connection, one of mutual desire, and passion.

The narration by Craig Bowles is outstanding. Aside from having a very appealing voice, Bowles does an incredible job bringing the story to life. He hones in on each character, simulating their personalities. Overall, this is a very entertaining story, and I can't wait for the second book in the series.

I enjoyed this book

I enjoy the story, it was an original one. I would read the next one in the series just to know what happens next. but the author didn't leave you hanging. I do like reading about alien romance series, this was my first by this author.
First cyborg created on earth to help humans survive the wars. Now that all the was are over, Ethan and the other cyborgs in his command, have no job. Ethan started a company and help his people and humans find a new world because Earth is dying. Ethan goes out to find a planet for his client, but he finds people in need of his special talents. Ethan can not just walk away.

the cyborg and the slave

This was the 1st audio book I listened to. I must say that I really enjoyed the book this way. The narrator's voice was smooth and kept me interested in the story. Three book itself had two great main characters and several side characters itching to have their stories told in this format. Ethan and Nyla's story was sweet grin the start. She has had a very rough life, with no one she could count on to keep her safe and love her. That changed when she was forced to meet Ethan. What started as a forced pairing due to her slave status quickly turned into a love affair between the slave and the cyborg, Ethan. Can't wait to see where this goes next as the story does basically just end.
