AudioBook Review – Flaming Skies, Atomic Sea Pt 5

 

I was so happy to be back listening to this series! As I love it!

—————-

“Gimme More! “

It was really nice to be back inside this world. I really enjoyed this because it brought to a head a lot of things.

There were some really defining character moments. From Fredrick, to Sheridon…. The gang have been through so much, getting on an air ship even if it is a pleasure house, and then chasing after the over city. What a horrific world they inherit. Jack still amazes me with the horrific creatures in this. And this other place, and other ‘heart’ like creature that seems to be eating other weird creature, eeghhh had me shivering.

The best part to this of course is the ending. It’s just so action packed, that I struggled to actually listen to it when in work because I have to keep putting it down and wanted to listen all in one go. The fact Sheridon hadn’t poisoned Annie was so touching, I kinda felt so sorry for her, with all the stuff that had happened I actually think she really did love Francis. And now she’s gone. Layanne losing Fredrick was also pretty hard, just after losing his father too.

I think Fredrick made the biggest arc in this part because he didn’t want to help them and then he really did and he really meant it, where we thought he never would that he hated his mother, and what she did. But he can’t have.

For Janx of course killing Oothua and his friend, Muir Blog, hard. Finding Hildebrand, excellent, and of course the reuniting of Francis and Annie. They’re all real deep moments, these characters are so real, so fully dimensional this is one of the biggest, epic series I’ve listened to, I wonder what Jack is going to do next 🙂

The narration from Ray is amazing, these characters are just so alive because of him. Just loved it, and really didn’t want it to end. sigh. Fab job by both. More please is all I can say!

Life – poem

Life is not the best right now and I could do with a rest.

I believe it’s just a test right now, yet I still feel so blessed.

What hurts me, and makes me cry, also makes me fight.

No, no, not flight… I might have once turned and run.

Wether it be just a test or the best, I am not done.

Where would be the fun.

AudioBook Review – Quarter Share

Great Sci Fi – written by Nathan Lowell narrated by the fab Jeffrey Kafer –

The best thing about audio books is that I can listen to so many! I’ve had the fab pleasure of listening to a very different story this last couple of days. 🙂 and I really enjoyed it. It’s a new series and I defo want more –

If you’re like to check it out, here’s the link – http://www.audible.co.uk/pd/Sci-Fi-Fantasy/Quarter-Share-Audiobook/B01ETN1KCA/ref=a_search_c4_1_1_srTtl?qid=1463419678&sr=1-1#publisher-summary

Review is as follows – (spoilers) ————–

“Different, but amazing. “

When I like someone, I kinda follow them, so when I saw that Jeffrey Kafer posted about a new sci fi. I was like, Oh, yes please!

I did learn that it wasn’t the usual kinda sci fi I read or have started to listen to, but that didn’t mean I did not enjoy this.

The author Nathan Lowell has really done something different here. This is a very character driven book with people you can soon fall in love with. The main character Ish, has just lost his mum in a tragic accident, and with no parents and no job he’s about to be forced off planet, so he takes the first thing offered to him because he’s no choice.

The kid finds himself on the Lowis, (sp) and embarks on a very different way of looking at things, something no one on the ship has seen before.

Ish soon makes friends with the people in his department, Cookie and Pip. Even though he shows Pip up, he finds time to actually help the other youngster, and they become not only friends but partners in crime too, getting up to all kinds of trading adventures.

Pip, however, isn’t having much fun, after losing everything he had in a trade gone wrong, it’s the captain and Ish that help him here, and they begin to form a co-op with the ships best interests at heart.

The narration from Jeffrey is great, he’s perfect in first person POV and the inner mind of a youngster finding his feet, not only with the fleet, but amongst other people is interesting and very well done. Jeffrey delivers a lot of emotion with hardly any effort and all the characters come alive. I was especially fond of Bev and Dianne. 🙂 even Francis and Cookie. 🙂

I do think that there should have been a little more conflict for Ish on the ship. Although he’s never been off planet before, the people he meets, all seem a little too nice. Maybe that’s because Ish himself is just so nice, he never seems to fire up over much, doesn’t really grieve for his mum, and I think I’d really like that, even if it wasn’t in the first section of the book, but defo towards the end. The closest we get to that is when he remembers packing up on the planet, and moving to his new quarters, (but I’m not sure if that was actually in the second piece, as there was a few chapters in there for free.)

I am really interested in seeing what the gang does now though with their trading empire. I wonder what can go wrong, and what other relationships are going to form. It seemed Ish was starting to become attracted to some of his female friends on a different level, he kinda doesn’t mention that from the planet. about his other friends, or any potential girlfriends.

Thanks for an awesome new series to follow, and I look forward to more! 🙂

 

 

So busy, so busy…

That time when the voice from within is trying to break through.

That time when I say, no, and really mean I will always say, no.

—— poem 2016, – Dawn.

What happens –

 

What happens to you, when you’re so busy you don’t allow yourself to feel?

What happens to you, when your life takes  a turn for the worse?

 

Do you stop, and allow yourself the time to heal?

Do you allow yourself the time to turn it around?

 

Not always do we have the strength to go on.

Not always do we have the heart to believe we’re worth more.

 

Yet, somewhere there is hope.

Somewhere there is a belief.

 

Belief that we are what matters.

Belief that we are so much more than just thinking or feeling.

 

We are strong, we are better.

We are more than ED.
