Die Hard in the Renegade Universe!

This is an action-packed, crazy fun story.

The performance is well done. The narrator does a good job distinguishing the voices and making it easy to listen to.

Chaney never disappoints

I love all the books in the Renegade Universe, but I especially like that you can read the different series in whatever order you like. This one is no exception. The audio narration is especially riveting. Mark Boyett is a masterclass of talent and he pulls off the rugged ex-cop with some serious style. I couldn't stop listening and finished this in record time!

Started 3 stars but climbed to 3.5 — almost a YA book with language and implied sex . ....😱

The narrator is great. The pair of authors usually surprising good, but I think I will hold the series judgement as a “wait and see.”
There are incongruities in the book. Neutron bombs are desired to destroy the life in their vicinity — not destroy buildings and infrastructure which is the exact opposite of what is proposed by the authors here. And some of the knife fight scenes are just unbelievable. However to say more might be a spoiler. All in all an entertaining and not
unreasonable way to while away a few hours. 😱
————————————————————————————————————————
5 stars is great (I rarely give this rating).
4 stars is good (given only to interesting and well-written books).
3 stars is OK (the usual listen I encounter on Audible).
2 stars is poor (and not worth the credit or the listen).
1 star is awful (and to be diss'ed and shunned and spread as thus through out the Audible Universe)!

Really. Write Diehard differently make it original

This story is well written and of course well narrated by Boyett. However, I am not interested in reading Diehard when I have already watched the movie several times. This could have been rewritten in a satisfying alternative manner.
If you have never watched the movie Diehard 1 read this it’s a great adventure.

Really liked this one, good narration, less swearing with a mysterious undertone. It becomes slightly clearer and now I have to go, gotta read second book. Thanks!

Yes, Strong Parallels To Die Hard but ...

still, there's more than enough differences to make the book interesting and exciting.

J.N. Chaney and Christopher Hopper did an excellent job developing Flint's backstory that introduced and included his wife, his best friend and his a-hole corrupt police chief. The primary antagonist was every bit as malicious as Alan Rickman in the movie. The environment building was well written, even if most of it was describing the floors and rooms of the tower.

Then there were the unique differences starting with the all-too-proper AI who befriended him along the way, the futuristic medical tech and, of course WEAPONS!

The only area that was left out was no mention of Flint's providing assistance to his dead partner's orphaned kids.

Mark Boyett delivers his come-to-expect shine on narrating the story.

Overall, I liked the series and thought it worth using a credit on or purchasing it.

Resonant Son

Wow, what an exciting book. The story line was incredible and the same with narration. I loved the quips with the AI that kept a lot of humor in with the action. I felt at first there was some similarity with Die Hard and the evil minions goon, only with a twist of added Si-Fi. I would recommend this audio to young adults and up.
