Publisher's Summary

When a high-value scientist is taken hostage inside the galaxy's most dangerous prison, Halek Cain is the only man for the job.

The last remaining survivor of the Reaper program, Hal is an unstoppable force of fuel and madness. A veteran amputee-turned-cyborg, he has a history of violence and a talent for killing that is unmatched by any soldier. 

With the promise of freedom as his only incentive, he'll stop at nothing to earn back his life from the people who made him, imprisoned him, and were too afraid to let him die. 

Experience this exciting beginning to a brand-new series set in the Renegade Star universe. If you're a fan of Escape from New York, Renegade Star, or Deus Ex, you'll love this epic sci-fi thriller.

Escape from New York in space

It’s a pretty on the nose recreation of escape from New York in the renegade star universe.

This isn’t bad but if you have those movies fresh in your mind the mystery and wonder is somewhat muted. Otherwise another great story from JN Chaney.

Ray Porter and JN Chaney!

Wow! This was so much fun! As a huge fan of 80s action movies, this book hit all the right notes. Add to that the stellar narration from one of my favorite actors in the business and you’ve got an amazing book. I’ve read all of JN Chaney’s books as well and this is an exceptional entry in his library. I can’t wait for the sequel!

Loved it

Honestly one of my favorite books now.
Thank you Ray Porter for the wonderous voice to the characters, especially brought Cain to life for me.
Finished it all in one sitting, and I don't regret it in the slightest. As it was a laugh from start to finish. Though now I wait for the next book.
(And pray Ray voices the characters once again)

Epic

Epic space-action meets Rambo. It would be a disservice to the human-race if this doesn't turn into a series and a movie franchise!

If you're on the fence, just buy it. Ray Porter could read the phone-book and make it seem interesting, so you really have nothing to lose...

Shootem up action

A good story with character build up. The plot leaves a but to be desired and leaves several plot wholes. The action is good and the narrator is a pro. A great listen in a short time. I look forward to book 2.

Great Performance and Non-Stop Action

Very fast paced story in the renegade-verse and a wonderful performance by Ray Porter that perfectly captures the smart-ass badass of JN Chaney. Can’t wait for the next one so long as it isn’t the same basic plot as Renegade Star.

A love letter to 80s action

I didn't know Ray Porter before this book, but its easy to see why he's so popular. His narration fits the tone and style perfectly, capturing the delicate balance of cheeze and awesome that defined the 80s action movies this book calls back to.

That's not to suggest it's a superficial dressing like in Ready Player One; The Last Reaper truly feels like Escape From New York because it touches on the same human fears and hopes, not because it makes shallow references. Cain is a capable operator faced with overwhelming odds in complex so full of danger even the concrete bleeds a sense of menace. Couple that with themes of transhumanism and you have a unique take on a classic sci-fi adventure.
