Felt like the reader was trying to sound like a mechanical voice. The story had potential but the author spends too much time with scene and zero on plot or character development. Felt like I was listened by to someone describing someone else playing a video game. Had to force myself to listen to the whole thing since I spent money on it, but really wished I hadn’t.

the story is fun if a little light on detail.
the characters are two dimensional at best but the situations and tests they go though reminds me of the book 'Enders game' mixed with the video game 'halo' so it was fun.
the story could have been very enjoyable if not for the narration.
I do not wish to throw stones at the woman doing the voice work because there was so much feedback and background noise that I know the studio is mostly responsible for the poor audio quality.
that being said she sounded like a robot and mispronounced so many words I found myself trying to figure out what she actually meant verses what she actually said, and missing much of what was said afterwards.
that could have been because of bad editing however as many of the character names were said wrongly during the story. a Morgan was called Megan and then Morgan again in the next sentence. I use this example because this character was alone at the time and the author could not have been referring to anyone else.
all in all I think this series has potential and seeing that someone else narrates the 2nd installment I am going to give it a try.
but be warned if the performance of the narrator and the sound quality of the audio is important to you, skip this book and just buy the kindle version.
The concept around the story is great but the narration is wooden and almost computer generated. Maybe it was.
Found it hard to engage with and get the visual images I normally get when listening to a book.
