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.

An Enjoyable Light Read

Icarus: Interstellar Cargo was an enjoyable, light read. As a person who enjoys reading a lot in the genres of Sci-Fi and Fantasy, this book was a comfortable read, if sometimes predictable. That being said, I truly don’t intend any insult. On the contrary, Author Matt Verish has written a very good story with plenty of chracters and action to introduce his series. Based on book one, I would definitely try book two when it comes out on audio. In the mean time, Verish does have a fast paced, short story set in the same world as Icarus.

Narrator Kevin Pierce is a good pairing for this book. He has a distinctive sounding voice that I think works well.

Finally, this audio book was provided by the narrator at no cost in exchange for an honest review courtesy of Audio Book Blast.

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.

I recommend Icarus to any Sci-fi fan. It's was fun light listen! For those who have a Kindle Unlimited memberships, the book is currently offered through KU. Download and add whispersync, can't beat a great story at a great price!
