I started listening to Infinity: Chronos Ring not knowing this was the second book in the series. I decided to go with it and see how I liked it from that perspective, which left me pleasantly surprised!
As the story progressed, the author did a great job recapping what was going on, so I never felt like I was lost.
The actions scenes were well portrayed and kept me interested in the story while offering amusing thought narration through the protagonist's view that give me a greater understanding of the situation.
The dangers Lotus come across during his travels were entertaining and left me on edge as Lots found clever ways to escape the ever increasing dangerous situation he found himself in. The only issue I had was with the computer character. I enjoyed the dialogue between the two characters, but some of the scenarios seemed a bit too farfetched.
Overall, I really enjoyed the story and would recommend it to anyone who loves fun science fiction.
I had no issues with the narration. Mikael does a great job of switching between character voices for both male and female. It was a pleasure listening to this book!

So glad that there wasn't a second book letdown. The adventures continue. I enjoyed learning more about Ian's background. Another fantastic job by Mr. Naramore. I look forward to seeing where this series takes me. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.

Ian Lotus may be very human but he was certainly no ordinary man. For a start, no one knew how long he'd been alive - was it mere centuries, or even longer? - during which time he'd amassed an unknowable fortune and had time to develop skills far beyond that of the shorter lived person. He'd built the Chromosome Ring, the defensive shield surrounding the inhabited planets and to which only he had the key. And recently he had been recognised as the son of a near godlike alien.
But he was created by men in authority over the League of Planets and now also hated by his newly discovered younger half brother. Life was about to become difficult for Ian, following his escape from the holding planet on which he and his protector (gift from dad) on which they had been imprisoned.
This is a fun science fictional romp, well narrated by Mikael Naramore whose reading is pace perfect, well modulated and read with understanding. His voicings of all the characters is good, too, clearly differentiating them with suitable tones. Although the second in the series, it is possible to fully enjoy this tale without any knowledge of book one as all that is needed is given here. Not a serious book, raising no thought provoking issues, but it is a jolly good frolic with fights, near indestructible Cyrilllian robots, interplanetary travel (of the beam-me-up-Scottie kind), ambush and intrigue, betrayal and help from an unexpected course. Oh, and lots more.
Like I said, good fun.
My thanks to the rights holder for gifting me a complimentary copy of Infinity, via Audiobook Boom. This brief review is equally freely given. Thank you.
I really enjoyed this story, the action was fast paced, the characters were likeable and the narrator did a great job of bring this world to life.
I jumped straight into book 2 but I didn't feel lost or confused with the story line at any point, although I will be going back to book one!
