Publisher's Summary

Book one of The Uncommon Series, the best-selling tech start-up thriller trilogy.
Mara Winkel is rock climbing, mountain biking, and 'studying' her way through school at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
But when her best friend, James, asks her to partner with him to start a disruptive new software company, she discovers that the world of technology start-ups is fraught with intrigue, adrenaline, soaring successes, and scorching failures. It turns out this is especially true when your technology threatens entrenched drug cartels.
Mara has to juggle mysterious investors, opaque partners, critical customers, and a team that is as brilliant as it is dysfunctional until only one choice remains: win or die.

Never underestimate the underdog

Eliot Pepper's intriguing thriller had the perfect combination of mystery and comedy allowing the reader/listener to follow along with ease. The writing was witty and raw which really worked for the story's plot and characters.

Narrator Jennifer O'Donnell's narration was well done. She has an easy voice to listen to, and kept the pace and vocals natural.

Overall a great story and I look forward to seeing what comes next in the series.

This audiobook was given to me in exchange for an honest review.

Very fascinating and entertaining

This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast and I’m glad I got the opportunity to get it as I thoroughly enjoyed it. The story is well thought out and well written. The characters are interesting and while it take a while, do have some growth by the end of the tale. I work for a startup so I enjoyed getting to see all of the back office work and drama that goes into building a company and how the characters worked (or didn’t) to try and resolve their issues. Reading the story it felt very real to me. While I did find the story line interesting, since the primary part of the story is the building of Mosaic Industries I didn’t find the plot to be very thrilling or mysterious, but I finished it in three days so you can tell my enthusiasm for tale. My biggest issue with this book is that it doesn’t tell a complete story. There is a giant cliffhanger at the end trying to get you to go into the next version of the story which is one of my pet peeves. Other than that I can’t recommend this enough, especially for anyone who thinks they want to start their own company.

Ms. O'Donnell's narration is great. Her characters and pacing are terrific and she really helped bring the story to life.
