This audio book is a fast-paced sci-fi fantasy full of action. It starts from the first page and doesn't slow down until the end.I thoroughly enjoyed listening .
I received a free audiobook from AudioBookBoom in exchange of my review.

This was definitely a good book. The narration wasn't the best, but not so much that it killed the experience for me. It was an interesting premise and had lots of action and some humor mixed in. Definitely worth the credit.

This book takes an interesting approach to the mechanics and uses of travelling between alternate realities, turning it into a relatively simple procedure. However, that is really just the background for the story of an ex-military man turned author named Robert, who is struggling to keep going in the months following the death of his wife.
His life gets changed drastically when he saves a girl named Kira, he eventually learns about travel between dimensions and agrees to help her rescue her mother (inventor of dimension-hopping technology) from the people that were after Kira and want to exploit this tech for their own dimension's gain.
There were some plot points that seemed a little too clearly signposted from the start, but other revelations were less obvious and whether you spotted any of them or not didn't detract from my overall impression of the story.
Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy the performance of the narrator as much as some I have heard, he sounded too old for how I pictured the main character and his secondary characters probably didn't stand out enough either. However, his delivery was clear and while the performance didn't enhance the book for me, it didn't detract from it either.
Overall, I enjoyed this book, it setup enough ideas for the author to return to that world in the another book if he wants, but this book was a fully self-contained story that has a clear ending if he chooses not do so.

The action starts quite quickly and it doesn't slow down, however we don't get to find out things until about chapter 10. That's when things really get interesting. We also get a few surprises that I did not see coming. There was something that I guessed which turned out to be correct before even the characters found out. I was surprised they did not fugure it out or even have a theory about it. I also found one or two things that happened to fast and smoothly to be realistic.
The book has some profanity and violence.
The narrator I did like, but he did not do the female characters well and he sounded a lot older then the main character who is in his thirties. I kept imagining the character to be in his fifties. But other then this he is actually a good narrator.
