Publisher's Summary

In the middle of the night, an explosion rocks Cambridge, Massachusetts and wakes Saul Signalman from bed. Blue, ethereal light pulses into the sky. A FaceTime call pulls him away from the view. It’s his wife, consumed in light, bidding him farewell. And then - the call ends. The explosion of light intensifies. The power goes out. Electronic devices stop working. In the dead of night, he races to his wife’s lab at the explosion’s core, but the building is missing. 

His wife is gone.
 

All that remains is a test subject: Rain, a woman with no memory, whose eyes glow when she comes into contact with unseen forces, whose body lights up the night when monstrous nightmares descend on Boston, and whose creators will do anything to get her back.
 

Pursued by a rogue government agency, Saul goes on the run with the only person who might be able to explain what happened to his wife. Rain might be able to reveal what kind of person Saul’s wife really was, and how to stop the otherworldly terrors wiping out cities.
 

With Tether, Jeremy Robinson, the number one Audible and New York Times best-selling author, returns to the literary genre he created - the kaiju thriller - and turns it on its head, transporting the listener into the strange, and then beyond, into the supernatural.
 

“Kaiju” means “strange beast” in Japanese and refers to giant monsters like Godzilla, Gamera, and Robinson’s creation, Nemesis.

Kaiju’s are back baby!

Robinson is the gift that keeps on giving. His ability to craft amazing stories with unique concepts is unsurpassed. With Tether he brings us back into the world of the Kaiju that he first blessed us with during the epic Nemesis Saga. This time its paranormal, massive beasts and thrilling chases. This is an amazing story with electric characters and the, now expected, pop culture and cross-over references. Makes you question your beliefs in an afterlife and the paranormal. Twists, turns and surprises all the way. What a ride!

wtf?

So. This was an awesome audio book. I don't really know what else to say. it escalated so fast, and went into uncharted territory so soon, I'm really at a major loss for words. Supremely entertaining and very plausible. I would have given this book ten stars if I could have.Bravo!

Interesting concept

This book involves a man who feels he is less than he should be. He is put into a position where he must develop within himself what he needs to survive. He finds that his wife is involved in an lab accident and then things begin to happen where he has to fight for his survival and those he has gathered around himself.

This book was a continuous adrenaline rush as the group was pursued across the country. There was never a moment when you cold "guess" what the outcome would be.

The narrator was outstanding.

This book was provided free of charge with expectation of a review.

A Refreshingly Different Kaiju Story

First and foremost - cheers to Audible and ACX for having this book available for pre-order.  Second for having such a great hero image there (at least before the book released).

Going into this I didn't read a single thing from the synopsis.  I went in completely blind and I loved every second of it.  Robinson knows how to write a story without a ton of filler and knows how to write well-crafted interconnected characters like few others in the business.

The only thing I knew going into it was that this was going to be a Kaiju story.  For those not in the know, a Kaiju is "a Japanese word meaning "strange creature". In English, it has come to mean "monster" or "giant monster"".  So, I knew giant creatures - but that was it.  Obviously from the amazing cover art - I saw that they were giant and tentacled. What I didn't know was how incredibly original this story was going to be.  In chatting about this on twitter I said:

"I'm SUPER close to finishing it. It's refreshingly different from other Kaiju stories I've read."

I realize that I cannot really dig into much of the story without giving a lot of it away - but know you're in for a lot.  The main character is a nice-guy who is genuinely working on putting his foot down.  The story is as much his journey into being more forceful as it is about giant and insane monsters. I enjoyed the down to earth touch of Saul's character. He was such an "every man" that I didn't even question his motives.

Overall, a great and original Kaiju story that I'll be recommending to others.

Out of his depth...

The author takes scientific liberties with the story showing his clear lack of understanding as it pertains to the scientific method. It sounds like someone engaged in apologetics attempting to write a story all for the sake of pushing an afterlife theme. For the most part, the story was moderately entertaining, although it was lacking a connection to the characters. In my opinion, I would classify this as fantasy long before sci-fi.
The narration was very dragnet-style. Everything was very matter of fact In tone. It became very annoying very quickly.

Entertaining

Tether is an interesting story of scientific work that goes awry, those trying to find the truth, and those attempting to keep the information hidden and use it for personal gain. The story slowly unravels as the team tries to outrun a supernatural being hell bent on revenge. The characters are likable and relatable. The narrator did a good job.

Supernatural SciFi Thriller!!!

Tether is written by Jeremy Robinson. The narration is provided by Jeffrey Kafer. Mr. Robinson returns to the Kaiju Thriller Genre with a slight deviation adding some supernatural elements as well. This is a roller coaster ride that keeps the listener entertained. I was hooked from the very beginning of the story with his wife Face timing him from work.

This is a story for those listeners of the genre that enjoy a thriller with supernatural elements. This is not going to appeal to everyone but that is what the whole review process is here for. I truly enjoy the new twist of the mystery involving the wife and the creation of the Kaiju monsters this time. This new twist adds drama and tension. I truly enjoyed the story.

The narration by Jeffery Kafer in this audio production was truly outstanding. This was a truly memorable performance from Mr. Kafer. His performance of Rain and Saul was highly memorable. The production quality of this audiobook is also of the highest quality. I heard no problems during the entire performance. There were not any detectable flaws that I was able to hear during the entire performance such as loops, breaks, or buzzing. The production was crisp and clear. Breakneck Media delivered an excellent audiobook production. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

In this world and the next

At home and unable to sleep whilst his something'ology' wife is working through the night, ex crime reporter Saul feels the underground movement of an explosion and sees a blazing blue column of light centred over the laboratory where she is employed. Or rather, over where the laboratory used to be, because, as Saul discovers when he arrived there, it has gone. Instead, there is a pit, not even rubble. But there is a lone woman trapped behind a glass wall six stories down who appears to be glowing blue.
So starts another no holds barred paranormal thriller by Jeremy Robinson, a tale of black ops and ghosts, and chases from Boston to Chicago. Dialogue is good, the characters somewhat quirky - an especial favourite was the self professed Warlock who didn't believe in ghosts or anything paranormal - and their reality was solidified by the excellent performance of Jeffrey Kafer. Always a fine narrator, it was a pleasure to see his name given equal status on the cover as the author.

A fast, full action thriller with the main protagonists pursued by both the living and the dead, this story might be crazy but it is gripping, although I personally found the ending too prolonged. Recommended to those who don't mind suspending disbelief and throwing away all ideas of reality to fully immerse themselves in this paranormal horror thriller. It was fun.

Awesome

Jeffrey Kafer does an awesome job of narrating, he brings the story and the characters to life. He is clear to understand through headphones and over a Bluetooth speaker.

Jeremy Robinson has written a really cool story that I fully enjoyed. With a few Easter eggs and maybe a twist or two.
