Publisher's Summary

Contains books 1 and 2 of the Rise of the Ancient Gods series.

If it's peace you want don't ever be Jon Ryan. He's lived two billion years in the android host he transferred to when asked to save humankind. Darn thing won't wear out. Since successfully ensuring the survival of the population of doomed Earth, Jon wanted to die. He was switched off with the promise of never being powered up again. Yeah, Jon's never been that kind of lucky. He was forced to fight and win a war with the most powerful enemy he'd ever faced, the Berrillians. Then he longed for rest.

 Not in a universe that Jon lives in. A few hundred years after the Adamant War whispers of a new and existential threat began to be heard. People disappeared without a trace. Planets vanished without leaving a pebble behind. And someone was hiding impossible elements at the scenes of these mysteries. Anti-gold sitting right out in the open where it could not possibly be stable.

For better or worse Jon came to learn that the impending invasion of our universe would be by a species calling themselves the Ancient Gods. This malevolent, destructive, and merciless horde was bent on one thing alone. They wanted to have fun destroying our universe. They'd done it to others and couldn't wait to get the party started here. One factor, one force of nature stood between the Ancient Gods's success or their failure. You have to know it was the reluctant Jon Ryan.

But could he pull another miracle out of his hat? Could he triumph over the unbeaten Ancient Gods? If Las Vegas still existed no one there would touch Jon's odds.

Jon assembles his old crew, Toño, Sapale, Al, and his ship's AI Stingray. But they have little time to learn about their enemy and less chance of victory that ever before. After all they were facing god this time out. But, if there was an unwinnable fight anywhere Jon Ryan would rather be at the center of it than waiting to hear how badly it went. Yeah, #fighterpilot. You gotta love those jet jockeys.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Most annoying audiobook ever

The author tries waaaayyyyy too hard to make every sentence in the book funny and fails most of the time. The MC is very annoying; supposedly billions of years old, but acts like a 12-year-old. What's the point of giving the character this backstory when he's got nothing to show for it?

I elected to return the book a few hours in; just couldn't take it anymore.

Craig Robertson Rise of the Ancient Gods

I have read and thoroughly enjoyed every one of the books in this series. All the books so far have kept my interest to the point that I found it hard to put them down until I finished the story. Sadly, this book is the exception. I have labored through this book and on several occasions given serious thought to just chucking it and counting it as a waste of time. It lacks focus and direction, rather it just rambles on in obscure directions that seem to have little or no relevance to the base story line. The snappy repartee and sarcasm are present but frankly overused to the point of annoying in my opinion. I will continue to follow this series if it continues, but I will from this point on, view future additions with a healthy level of skepticism.

IGNORANT NAMES, PITIFUL COMEDIC INTENT

The CIA could use this book for enhanced interrogation!!

Yet its better than M.R. Forbes. Not by much, mind you. Maybe if you are 12 yrs old you might enjoy it. Everyone else be warned. This book is trash.

These never get old

Craig Robertson is a master storyteller. These books and their sequels cannot come out fast enough.

Alice in wonderland

Alice in wonderland meets “we are bob” I’m still not sure how I feel about this title. Some will love it others not so much. The book is well written. The characters are interesting. The story odd. If your looking for something different this might be for you. I might listen to the next one if it is a series.

spoiler alert...you will fall in love with Jack.

Jack is the Uncle everyone wishes they had. I laughed so much until the end. The end left me hanging with no directions on what was next. Slightly disappointing about that but would listen to it again anyway.
