Being a sentient spaceship really should be more fun. But after spreading out through space for almost a century, Bob and his clones just can't stay out of trouble. They've created enough colonies so humanity shouldn't go extinct. But political squabbles have a bad habit of dying hard, and the Brazilian probes are still trying to take out the competition. And the Bobs have picked a fight with an older, more powerful species with a large appetite and a short temper.

Young adults si-fi.
Narrator was my favourite part, I think she spiced up the intrigue.
Fairly funny, Satisfying action & gadgets, angst free.
Could almost have been a Firefly fanfiction.
Set in the same universe maybe?
Only negative thing is the romance the hero never resolves, but obsesses over.

The future of the Ashaiian haven, the newly founded Kingdom of Cael, is anything but secured. Rezkin must seek recognition from the King of Gendishen if his people are to maintain possession of their island home and the enchanted secret it contains. In an unexpected twist, events overtake Rezkin, and he is thrust into a frustrating adventure to seek a worthless prize. He finds that his carefully constructed reputation as an indomitable foe has consequences as others seek to use his strengths for their own gain.

Great Young Adult fantasy.

Somehow the Innocence of the Rez is enjoyable rather than mind-numbing.
The psychology of the magic is fun.
Plot fast-paced but easy to pick-up.
Narrator has choice rhythm, easy to follow while distracted.
Charming enough that this usually more serious fantasy reader will be coming back.

Bob Johansson has just sold his software company and is looking forward to a life of leisure. There are places to go, books to read, and movies to watch. So it's a little unfair when he gets himself killed crossing the street. Bob wakes up a century later to find that corpsicles have been declared to be without rights, and he is now the property of the state. He has been uploaded into computer hardware and is slated to be the controlling AI in an interstellar probe looking for habitable planets.

So satisfying to listen to.
Great solid ideas with well-paced easy listening punch. Loved the 'different' characters, planets and species.
enjoyable rapidly branching storylines.
