An enthralling masterpiece of sci-fi writing that transports you to a punishing planet and never lets up.

It's more than an audiobook

it's an audio cinematic experience. Incredible production values. Interesting storylines. Long enough to keep you enthralled but never boring.

A boring, bloated and political fantasy that drags

it gets bogged down in politics and is light on the fantastical and fun.

Moss serves up his science fiction like a plate full of hearty vegetables. You know the science and detail is good for you but all you really want is a bite of that delicous steak. Sadly, Moss serves up very little steak in a long and slow story that, whilst genuinely great, is very difficult to get through... I struggled all the way. With that said I'll still trek on to book 3.

Without a doubt, the best trilogy I have ever read. Brown has catapulted himself into the upper echelons of literary greatness.

Pierce is an author at the very top of his game. His handle on story, dialogue and pacing rivals that of George RR Martin. Golden Son is flawless in every possible way. It really got to me... moved me... made me invest emotionally in Darrow and his quest. I highly recommend it to anyone who appreciates quality writing and storytelling.
