Publisher's Summary

The team of heroes extracted from their timelines to stop the impending apocalypse didn't think they needed a leader.

But they've got one anyway.

With their mission in tatters, Miri has been called in to steady the ship. And to focus them on their assignment: preventing the end of the world.

The problem is, the world doesn't know it's in danger. With governments pursuing them relentlessly, attempting to steal the time-travel device to use for their own ends, the heroes are on the run - fighting for survival in a world they're supposed to save.

Meanwhile, Miri has motives of her own. And when the existence of a second device is discovered, the team's mission and their lives are in mortal danger....

    "Fantastic"

    Brilliant, funny, clever, amazing loveable characters who work off each other's differences so perfectly with tender grace and total hilarity at times that you feel like you right there with them. This is wonderfully written and beautifully narrated. A total joy to read and listen to.

    "Time wasting and disappointing"

    After a good first book, this sequel draws out trivia to the point of tedium. The writing is confused, lacks direction and the excellent original plot has vanished, leaving a confused and irritating mess.

    "Unputdownable - an absolute must listen"
    If you could sum up Executed in three words, what would they be?

    Thrilling, absorbing rollercoaster, with an ending that does not disappoint - even better than the first in the series. Most audiobooks have periods in which I lose concentration / drift for a bit before the action resumes - not this book, I was hooked from start to finish - and I defy anyone to guess the ending.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Loved them all - rarely for a book there are 4 equally strong, appealing lead characters but if I had to choose I have a huge girl crush on Saffi - a great mix of stroppiness and vulnerability, with raw honesty thrown in.


    Which character – as performed by Carl Prekopp – was your favourite?

    Carl's narration is superb and does this excellent story justice. They are all believable, But Ben Ryder is particularly appelaing as voiced by the narrator. But then I also loved Harry, Emily, Ben and Miri.. Even Roland was flawed but convincing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely yes! I resented the time spent away from it then was so sorry to finish it quickly. Prepare to put your life on hold for a while - if you start you will not want to stop.


    Any additional comments?

    This series would make a great introduction to audiobooks for those new to the genre. The narrator has perfect comic timing, great vocal pace and extraordinarily clear characterisation.

    "Brilliant and unputdownable"

    Wow - this book was amazing, I couldn't stop listening. A huge leap from Book 1. A super-tight plot, excellent character development and wonderful humour which had me laughing out loud. I listened to it in 2 days and hated that it was coming to an end. And what an ending, didn't see it coming at all. I can't wait for Book 3, I hope there's more than 3.

    Highly recommended.

    "If I could give it a higher rating, I would"

    Simply brilliant. The author's deep understanding of human nature and mastery of dialogue = a riveting tale. Book 1 was great and I doubted the second book could be better. I was wrong. It's rare for an author to craft a story where the reader feels like they're right there, alongside the characters. I felt like I knew all the characters and cared what happened to them. I also felt like I understood them. The narrator was perfect. Too often a story is ruined by poor delivery. Carl Prekopp goes on my top 5 narrator list. Such a rare pleasure.

    "The Extracted team continue onwards!"
    What did you love best about Executed?

    The performance by RRH is amazing. His consistency and ownership of the various ongoing characters is the true highlight of this series. His voicing of Mother, and indeed all the female characters, is truly impressive.


    What other book might you compare Executed to and why?

    This is a very much a natural progression of the first book of the series.


    Have you listened to any of Carl Prekopp’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The Extracted, and several other speculative fiction works. This one is simply outstanding!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The resolution is fascinating.


    Any additional comments?

    I simply hope the series continues. Not totally highest marks, as there is some repetition here, and it ran abit longer than it needed to IMHO. Aside from that, this is a brilliant offering. Highly recommended!

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I love the narrator and he kept me going with the second book in hope that there will be some development to the story but alas... two books back to back feel like the longest foreplay ever. Where is the beef?

    Story
    "Extracted and Executed"

    The series is SciFi-Fantasy. A time machine reveals that the end of the world will occur in 2111. Three heroic individuals are ‘extracted’ from their current lives/times to prevent the apocalypse. An interesting and promising premise. However, the main thrust, i.e., saving the world, is simply a vehicle for the author to move characters through time and have incredibly mundane conversations. The main characters argue about how to say 2111. Twenty one eleven? Two thousand one eleven? Really? Oh … wait … the world is ending! A WWII soldier becomes a Harry Potter fan - really? The characters banter for several paragraphs and through much stupid dialogue about if or not a character should ‘wank’, masturbate, to release tension. Really?? Oh … wait … the world is ending. A great deal of time spent on the psyche due to confinement … really?? Hello! The world is ending! The author should have spent much more time developing the fundamental plot instead of dwelling on character behaviors and interaction that adds nothing to the story.

    Audiobooks listened to, Extracted and Executed, are about 12 hours of listening each, narrated by Carl Prekopp, stories written by R. R. Haywood. No particular issues with narration, Prekopp can only do so much with the material. You’ll have no issues with the reading.

    Vulgar language might offend. No sex scenes, some violent scenes.

    However, after struggling to the meat of the story through two books, the motivation to continue just isn’t there. Must be some merit to this series based on some stellar reviews. Beats me - not my cup ‘o tea.

    This by far one of the best audio books I have ever listened to. The story was magnificent it held my attention throughout the hours of listening. The performance by Carl Prekopp was unbelievable. I was convinced there was actually 8 different people speaking. WOW. I want more from this author and narrator!

    "Excellent follow up to a great initial novel"

    I highly enjoyed "Extracted", and "Execution" was a solid follow up. For those who've read "Extracted" this one takes us a bit further down the rabbit hole in exploring the potential for the team's predicament. What I appreciate is that "Executed" isn't just a rehash of the same ideas as the first novel. Instead it's an escalation of the story into the pitfalls of their future world and how to better save it.

    A big plus with this novel is the addition of extra characters, and Haywood does a fantastic job of giving them their unique personas that are relatable to the reader in likable or unlikable ways.

    For those who haven't read the first novel, you probably should. Besides that, the only issue I have with the writing is it's changing of character POV rapidly. It's especially difficult in audio book format where we can't see the paragraph breaks to announce changes. However, after the first novel, I got used to it and in this one, the changes were much easier to follow.

    This novel leaves off on a solid wrap up, but also leaves some cliffhangers that I expect will lead to a following continuation of the story. Definitely excited for that!

    "Non-Stop, Action-Packed Adrenaline Rush With Heart"

    Wow! Extracted was good-- Executed by R.R. Haywood is AWESOME!

    It's not often that I'm unable to accurately predict what's going to happen; Executed had me thrilled, guessing, and surprised to the very end. Where there was action and adventure in Extracted, Executed is a crazy, non-stop, action-packed adrenaline rush! To make it even better, the characters are so well developed, I've come to think of them as friends

    Executed is not a stand-alone novel. You will want to listen to Extracted before this one, but your investment of time is well worth it. If you are a techno-thriller fan, this is a series not to miss!
