In the year 2243, the Moon belongs to the dead. The largest graveyard in the solar system, it was the perfect solution to the overcrowding and environmental problems that had plagued mankind for centuries. And the perfect place for Cali Washington to run away from her past. But when a mysterious meteor crashes into one of the Moon’s cemeteries, Cali and her fellow Caretakers find themselves surrounded by a terrifying enemy force that outnumbers them more than a thousand to one. An enemy not hindered by the lack of air or warmth or sustenance. An enemy that is already dead.

Pretty decent book once you drop the notion that it has anything to do with 14 or Fold. Started off slow but once the action got going the book was hard to stop listening to.

A human diplomat creates an interstellar incident when he kills an alien diplomat in a most unusual way. To avoid war, Earth's government must find an equally unusual object: A type of sheep ("The Android's Dream"), used in the alien race's coronation ceremony. To find the sheep, the government turns to Harry Creek, ex-cop, war hero and hacker extraordinaire.

To be honest, I had a hard time getting into this book but being a fan of other Scalzi-Wheaton works, I decided to give it a shot. I had moments where I laughed out loud, was drawn in by the action and enjoyed the somewhat complexities of the universe built out in The Androids Dream. The performance and moments of humor was the saving grace for this book. Once you've accepted the lighter tone and non-seriousness of this book, you'll enjoy it so much more.

When Ivan Pritchard signs on as a newbie aboard the Mad Astra, it's his final, desperate stab at giving his wife and children the life they deserve. He can survive the hazing of his crewmates, and how many times, really, can near-zero g make you vomit? But there's another challenge looming out there, in the farthest reaches of human exploration, that will test every man, woman and AI on the ship - and will force Ivan to confront the very essence of what makes him human.

Ray Porter delivers another fantastic performance in this audiobook. The story is executed well and the character development paces just good enough to make you care.

The Interdependency, humanity’s interstellar empire, is on the verge of collapse. The Flow, the extra-dimensional conduit that makes travel between the stars possible, is disappearing, leaving entire star systems stranded. When it goes, human civilization may go with it - unless desperate measures can be taken. Emperox Grayland II, the leader of the Interdependency, is ready to take those measures to help ensure the survival of billions. But nothing is ever that easy.

Decided to carry on with this series because I love the idea and delivery of the narrator. This book feels much more complete and the ending was transitioned so much better this time around.

Our universe is ruled by physics, and faster-than-light travel is not possible - until the discovery of The Flow, an extradimensional field we can access at certain points in space-time that transports us to other worlds, around other stars. Humanity flows away from Earth, into space, and in time forgets our home world and creates a new empire, the Interdependency, whose ethos requires that no one human outpost can survive without the others. It's a hedge against interstellar war - and a system of control for the rulers of the empire.

Cheeky and vulgar with an acceptable amount of gripping action, this audio book had the making of something I can binge and get into. Unfortunately the ending is abrupt and leaves much to be desired. I'm hooked now and will get on with the series but I feel like the continuation of the series could have launched elsewhere.

I'm a huge fan of The Expanse and this book filled the void. Gripping action, compelling characters and a universe built out at a solid pace kept me in it. Highly recommended.

There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

Wasn't sure what I was getting myself into but the reviews seemed good so I went ahead with it. Absolutely no regrets, this book is well performed, engaging and the characters although a bit cliche, are well developed. Highly recommended!
