Summary

"Your true name is Red Rex. The baddest of badasses, an alpha warrior beyond compare..." Or, at least, that's what he's been told.

Eighteen-year-old Gaige Dupond has his life all mapped out. Lose his virginity to Emily. Get married. Become a pro soccer player and travel the world.

His father, a pure-bred Deltarc from another planet, whose race is growing extinct on planet Earth, has other plans - either confirm that he truly takes after his warrior father, and not his dearly departed empath mother, or snuff out his existence.

All plans go awry, however, when the dangerous red darkness in Gaige is awakened like a beam of hell flickering from his right eye, in a brutal ceremony. Pursued by a vicious Deltarc bounty hunter, Deltarc tracking hounds and his father's wicked minions, he loses his home, his life, all that he holds dear in pursuit of the truth.

In his quest to find his mother, victim to a corrupt cryopreservation project in outer space, and right the wrongs inflicted on him, he finds something far darker - his own sinister motivations and the need to feed on something other than human food. His only companion, a lab rat refugee named Sojourn, Gaige knows he'll never be loved - not in the way he'd always envisioned. Will he find the revenge he's seeking, or will he become an evil replica of his father? That's the last thing he'd ever wish on himself, but it may be his only option for survival.

Kudos Calinda

Would you consider the audio edition of Red Rex: Blood Echoes to be better than the print version?

Any additional comments?

Calinda B has crafted a very intricate, well described story. I had no problem visualizing the worlds she created.
Gaige is a normal boy attending high school, playing soccer and in love with his girlfriend Emily. He suddenly faces a very violent coming of age at the hands of his father. While he searches for his mother with the help of his teacher, an older woman and an escaped lab rat, he learns to use his new powers. As he finally accepts himself for who he is now, all of his other problems work themselves out.
I absolutely loved this story. Kudos Calinda.

The audible disclosure is worthy

Wow, a wonderful and suspenseful listen from the very beginning. This action-packed listening had me enthralled from beginning to end. With turns and twists. This author has done a great job with epic scenes to carry out this epic listening. I recommend it, certainly.

This auditory merits disclosing

It brings deceit, manipulation, greed, thrill, adventure, and victory to this sci-fi thriller. The great main character is Gaig Dupont. Add this audio-book and the brilliant art of this audio-book writer to a great story.

A Really great audio-book!

I enjoy wearing science fiction all the time, anyway. It was more than I expected, and until the end, I heard it. And hints of romance and plenty of activities, science fiction/fantasy. This audio-book is highly recommended to everyone.

sci fi erotic change

I don't really know what I just listened to which is why I'm saying it was pretty good - Gaige has a manipulative, well let's just call it what it is - evil father who does the most atrocious acts to his son. So Gaige is basically abused by his father and goons and Red Rex comes into existence. Gaige fights his inner Red Rex for awhile until he finally just gives up everything he holds dear to him and becomes Red Rex in full. Very erotic scenes throughout the read / listen and believe it or not there is a HEA. I will say that it was an absolute pleasure to listen to this narrator. S Johnson could read to me anytime!!! He not only made this character but helped to elevate this read in my opinion. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
