Publisher's Summary

A threat has emerged from the cosmos: Thanos, a ruthless warlord who plans to collect all six Infinity Stones. Joined by his formidable allies, he will be near-unstoppable at achieving his goal.

The Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange, and Spider-Man must join forces and fight side by side to stop Thanos, while the fate of the Earth and the universe lays in the balance.

This audiobook features the stories of three of the six Stones as The Collector recovers from his run-in with the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Desperate to repopulate his vast collection of curios, he must contend with his brother The Grandmaster, who comes to him after facing Thor and the Hulk. The pair squares off in a night of one-upmanship and speculate on the only things in the universe that would return The Collector to his former glory - the Infinity Stones.

The Cosmic Brothers' Journey

This story is set after the events of Thor: Ragnarok from the perspective of The Collector, a character we haven't seen since Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 1. The Grandmaster, fresh from the destruction of his empire on Sakar, runs into his brother and find themselves plunged into s journey to find the reality stone.
I highly recommend this for any Marvel fan. Also to anybody looking for a science fiction book to enjoy.

Ridiculous, Poorly Written and Just PLAIN DUMB

It was a rip off of a story that basically just recounted the events of the movies which involved the stones.
However it was so poorly written and so lazily researched that even a passing casual interest in the MCU can point out the myriad of plot holes and things that made no sense.
As in this story takes place after Ragnarok and before the snap. As in The Collector no longer has the ether....yet in this story The Collector has only a passing knowledge of Thanos and absolutely NO clue that Thanks is the one who is gathering all of the Infinity Stones.
Or the "plot" of The Collector and Grandmaster searching for an Infinity Stones. And for some reason this is all based on a flimsy half rumor from a junk dealer whom The Collector doesn't trust, who has tried only to swindle the collector and who even stated that the rumor was only something that he may have heard and that it was far from accurate. Yet it is enough to send the characters (I guess to make a plot seem worthy rather than a complete rip off of the movies) off now certain that there is a time Stone near. And that after searching for a quarter of a day without finding it, they are exasperated because that quarter of a day is apparently far longer than the expected time frame it should take to find an infinity stone.... never mind that The Collector has been searching his whole life and had only encountered 2. So he understands the difficulty of finding them and the difficulty of the search and now the author wants us to believe that the Collector is certain one is nearby within his reach based off something someone who he doesn't trust may have heard in passing and that after a quarter day of going into 2 establishments that supposedly can verify the rumors accuracy this is just simply to great of a time strain to continue and wishes to quit. (although The Collector somehow by the 2nd establishment goes from wanting to verify the rumor to thinking that the stone is absolutely at the 2nd establishment even though that had never even been hinted at...and that he is mere moments away from possessing an infinity stone... although he has no clue which stone it is).
And finally... finally earlier in the story he establishes the whereabouts of each Stone, except the mind stone yet despite knowing that none of the Stones are on his planet, goes off on this search of his planet convinced that there is a stone. And the entire story he is trying to figure out which stone it is apparently forgetting that earlier (as in an hour or so in the story) he establishes the locations and somehow can't grasp the process of elimination. Oh and how about nobody in the universe knows a thing about the soul stone but it's been on his planet and some random dude just throws out a maybe rumor that the most sought after stone is the easiest to find?

Only die hard MCU people would like this but those also are the ones who will hate it because of how lazy the author treated the property. Copying the movies and the only original content filled with holes that are insulting

This is only about the grand master and collector

This is just a story about the grand master and collector learning of the avengers and guardians of the galaxy. The narrator was really good.

Too much recap, not enough new content

The majority of the story was a recollection of past events with some new stuff sprinkled in. I'd prefer the reverse.

The Collector and his slave are well done. The Grandmaster is passible but no where near Goldblum's performance.

interesting...

I had no idea they were brothers! I love all the little MCU extras you get from some of these series.
