Publisher's Summary

Cole Musgrave's dream of interstellar travel is about to become a nightmare. When a high-profile delivery is compromised aboard a state-of-the-art cargo vessel, the newly appointed captain finds himself embroiled in an assignment far above his pay grade.
Blackmail, terrorists, a malfunctioning prototype A.I. pilot, and a sinister terraforming corporation with deep criminal ties await him. Who knew delivering cargo to the deep recesses of space could be so dangerous?
Armed only with his cunning and past military experience, Cole is one against many. But this unorthodox interstellar cargo pilot won't go down without a fight - even after he is faced with a choice that will alter the course of his life forever.

Fun Space Sci-fi Adventure

I was unsure about this book until I was about an hour in. The overall story was well-written, engaging, and fun. There were enough plot twists and turns to keep your mind occupied trying to figure out just wat was going to happen next and who to good and bad guys really are.

A former military cargo ship pilot is tapped for a surprising assignment. He is to pilot the newest state-of-the-art ship in the company's fleet equipped with an advanced artificial intelligence (AI). Surprisingly enough, the AI even turns out to take a liking to him. When he gets only hours into his mission, however, he finds that he was chosen for a reason... To be the fall guy for an act of terrorism. However, there are plans within plans, and other members of the crew have both obvious and hidden agendas. There were enough plot twists, surprises, and turns in the story that I was impressed with the creativity of the writer.

The narrator did a good job with the book as well. I gave him 5 stars, but he was really closer to 4.5.

I think that just about all fans of space science fiction will appreciate this book at the very least. I would recommend it to most of the sci-fi fans I know.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.

Wow! .... Much Better Than Anticipated!

Icarus was great story and I really enjoyed listening to it!

I really liked Cole's character, and how he maintained his cool, and dry humor while he dealing with each situation, and the ever evolving A.I. called Cain. There were times, I wanted to choke the A.I., but while Cole couldn't choke Cain, he definitely outwitted the A.I.

The narration was awesome, and really added to the story! Kevin has a great voice, and I could easily listen to him all day.

Audiobook was received at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom dot com.
