Impact listen

Desert Runner is a short novella that had me wanting more. The world is set inside of a game but told from a character's point of view. Maddie is a runner with a biometric programmed hog (vehicle). She takes on a quest for money but gets more than she bargains for with her charge Alex. The trek is perilous, sad, freightening, and intense. I loved the scenes right from the start and would definitely seek more out by Ms. Chapman. The narrator did an awesome job with providing unique voices for each character and using appropriate tone inflections for the situations. I received a free copy of the audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

An introduction into a different world

Chapman creates an interesting world for her first book. The main character is, thankfully, not so jaded or tired of living in a bleak frontier town unlike most stories of this kind. She is tough, and brave, with a softer side, but can handle herself well. Her perspective on "visitors" is something pretty neat for an NPC. Andrea Parsneau is great as the narrator. She manages to do the male voices very well, most ladies cannot achieve this to her her level, and her words flow like water in a mountain brook. A good set up for the rest of the series. I have to find out what happened with the Hog!

I really enjoyed it !

Just finished listening to the book and must admit I really enjoyed it. The story is incredibly well structured with some very exciting scenes.
Excellent narration throughout that helped convey the emotions of the main character and helps build suspense like in the underground cavern section.
Will definitely be getting the next one soon. Can't wait to see how the story continues. Well worth a purchase and listen.

I’m shocked !!!!!

Man this is not me, I don’t give 5 stars but this one totally deserved it, I’m amazed at this creation, it’s totally beautiful and the narration is perfection ( great story and great performance ), I want more so much more, this must be continued as an Audio series !
There is so much more that needed to be said, that I want to say but I just can’t find the words.
Get this one is my advice to all, you won’t regret it I promise !!!!!!
