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.

What a sad state...

The Forever series had me hooked. Listened to it twice. Galaxy on Fire was ok, but only just. But this is just awful. Wishy washy, non-sensical bordering on slapstick fantasy. It started with promise but honestly I have given up. Perhaps it's time John dies, and we are left with our memories.

Just awful, written for 10 year olds.

I listened to the first twenty minutes and hated every one of them. Nonsensical rubbish, trying desperately hard to be a poor man's Pratchet.
Only the 3rd book I'll be refunding.

Outstanding

Very slight spoiler alert. VERY slight. Absolutely hilarious. Scott Aiello's reading is beyond brilliant with loads of accents. Worth every penny. I have listened to the first two John Ryan books which were good but not to this level, but seem to have have missed some so will correct that immediately. Hopefully the missing one's will be as good as this. An accident put me in a wheelchair so my daughter takes me to the park every day for half an hour where I listen to to my audible books. Once John Ryan gets to the Ancient Gods universe I was constantly laughing out loud, and I do mean constantly. Just so funny. Highly recommend.

Not for me

Disjointed tale I could not get into try a!s I might, and it was shown in a list of books I might like? It was a waste of a credit to be honest
