Hearing a Kronos Rising title, even a novella, is a great way to experience this story beyond simply reading. If you like Max Hawthorne's marine reptile fare, you should definitely check this audible out!

A solid story that surrounds an isolated volcanic island inhabited by natives and clearly expresses their struggles as they are caught in a war between the prehistoric creatures they call 'Gods' and the forces of nature. Throwbacks to Merian C. Cooper's 'King Kong' are at work in this short, but sadly supplies nothing unique in the early stages of the plot line. Throughout it, Max Hawthorne displays his passionate knowledge of paleontology and acute geographical detail; all of which allured me to listen more. People unfamiliar with such topics may struggle to comprehend the information, but can find entertainment value in the beautifully described settings and gripping moments of dread that Max Hawthorne excels in portraying.
The lack of character dialogue at times made it difficult to gauge their personality and/or bond to. However, this is overshadowed by the authors detailed depiction of ongoing events. In regards to Narration, Rich Miller does a great job of reading clearly and concisely, but failed at moments to really capture the emotion of the storyline.
In conclusion, Max Hawthorne's 'Kronos Rising: Diablo' is, again, a solid audiobook that I thoroughly enjoyed listening to, but felt elements were missing to make it 'unique' and ended too quickly.
