Hats off to the wonderful man who wrote this!

Very impressed, could not stop listening. Must say that the author's voice is my favorite so far on in spoken stories. He didn't need all the Scott Sigler special effects, just good descriptive flowing writing! Great stuff.

Great start to an amazingly good series - Try it, you'll like it!

If you’re thinking: “science fiction, meh not my thing”, then think again. This story (like all good literature) is about people, and is full of rich and sympathetic characters. The SF setting complements the story perfectly but really, it could be set anywhere, anytime.

This is quality writing and voice production at its finest. Nathan’s voice work is clear and easy to listen to and fits the story perfectly. I urge anyone who reads this comment and is thinking about listening to the first story to give it a chance – I guarantee that if you’re still listening after the first few episodes, you’ll soon be downloading the rest of the books ; )

Thanks so very, very much Nathan for your amazing stories!
