Publisher's Summary

In a world beset by amassing forces of darkness, one organization - the Regional Office - and its coterie of superpowered female assassins protects the globe from annihilation. At its helm, the mysterious Oyemi and her oracles seek out new recruits and root out evil plots. Then a prophecy suggests that someone from inside might bring about its downfall. And now the Regional Office is under attack.

Recruited by a defector from within, Rose is a young assassin leading the attack, eager to stretch into her powers and prove herself on her first mission. Defending the Regional Office is Sarah, who may or may not have a mechanical arm and is fiercely devoted to the organization that took her in as a young woman in the wake of her mother's sudden disappearance. On the day that the Regional Office is attacked, Rose's and Sarah's stories will overlap, their lives will collide, and the world as they know it just might end.

Weaving in a brilliantly conceived mythology, fantastical magical powers, teenage crushes, and kinetic fight scenes, The Regional Office Is Under Attack! is a seismically entertaining debut novel about revenge and allegiance and love.

Read by Sarah Scott, Natasha Soudek, Susan Hanfield, and Mike Chamberlain.

    "Natasha Soudek Nailed It!!"
    What did you like best about this story?

    This was better than his "Miniature Wife" stories.
    Great story, solid pacing, EXCELLENT new narrator Natasha Soudek on the scene!


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I considered getting the ebook, but am so glad I got the audiobook because I found Natasha Soudek (who reads the From the regional office chapters). I'm now going to hunt down everything else she has done is Sci-Fi. Mike Chamberlain is also great as always.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I listen to Sci-Fi, I don't cry. Except when zombies or aliens attack babies. :)

    "Awesome!"

    I haven't finished a book in 2 day in a long time.
    The Author does a great job of pulling you in with a unique style of story telling. I don't want to give anything away, other than I was very entertained. This is a rock solid first novel from Gonzales and IMO it's a must read. Congratulation Mr. Gonzales, I look forward to your next release.
    Tim.

    "I was great, and then it just ended..."

    It was excellent and then it stopped, as if the Final Chapter was excluded. I was sad.

    Story
    "Pre-teen fantasy"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This would be perfect for a 13 year old girl who dreams about being a super-power teenage spy girl.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not this.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    None of them.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Regional Office Is Under Attack!?

    The whole plot.


    Any additional comments?

    This is not a book for adults. There is no substance to the characters, the plot has too many obvious devices, and there is little to grasp beyond flash-bang excitement of a poorly scripted action movie.

    "Damn there's a lot of swearing..."
    What could Manuel Gonzales have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Varied his vocabulary for sure. I know Rose is only 17 but she doesn't have to drop the F-bomb or call everyone assholes every time she opens her mouth (or doesn't open her mouth since a lot of it is her own internal dialogue). It's jarring and distracting.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Performance was ok but it hit peaks and was hard to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    Only made it to Chapter 14 but I couldn't handle the writing.
