Summary

Press your luck too hard, for too long, and man, will you come to regret it.

Jon Ryan had lived long enough to know better. But with age does not automatically come wisdom. He has saved mankind many times. He even resurrected Earth and all its inhabitants from never-having-existed. But he's still haunted, and haunted people do crazy things.

Because of his interventions, Earth's timeline has been totally scrambled. Now Jon feel obligated to restore the original order of time. If he doesn't, many mind-boggling paradoxes will occur. He's not sure he and existence as he knows it will continue. Whatever it takes, he will have his future the way it was always supposed to be.

But can time be altered? How could he possibly achieve his unimaginable goals? With no certain plan, he ricochets through the past, hoping against hope that whatever alterations he's making will restore Earth's original timeline. But it's very likely he will only continue to make matters worse.

An accidental encounter with the dark denizens of the mysterious Void threaten to derail Jon's quest before it even begins. He offends the ghostly Phantoms, and now they will not rest until they see Jon dead—or worse. If Jon's quest was impossible before, with this relentless enemy, it now becomes totally inconceivable.

Follow Jon in his continuing adventures of The Ryanverse. The action is nonstop. The tension is unbearable. The odds are always bleak. But, in spite of all that, Jon's antics will put a smile on your face and make you laugh harder than you have for a very long time.

Smells like the gender & race BS creeping in.🤢🤮

I have read/listened to every Jon Ryan book that’s out (I really dislike the character) the stories are unique though. Which is why I kept buying them.

It’s not until this book and maybe a few places in time wars last forever that gender delusions started showing up. By gender delusions I mean the laughable notion that a human female is going to beat up all male comers in marshal combat that’s a joke it doesn’t happen in the real world it’s biology. if it were possible we would have men and women fighting together in the UFC and boxing martial arts but we don’t because men are physically stronger than women. That doesn’t mean they aren’t equal they are just better at different things physical combat isn’t one of them. And yes this is a fantasy book but I’m tired of seeing this garbage put in everywhere.

The author decided to include the phrase old white men do insert stereotypical bad thing. Or as the critical drinker refers to it see YouTube “the message”.

This book started to smell like it had elements of “the message” in it so it’s the first book by him I’ve given one star all his other books were five stars I am so tired of having the message shoved down my throat. I don’t care anymore, nobody cares. you’re not helping anyone by shoving “the message” down peoples throats.

as a sidenote this authors had some seriously messed up relationships by the sounds of it. just thought I’d tack that on there too. that I could care less about I just think it’s kind of funny. Or he just has had nothing but verbally abusive women his whole life. Some guys are into that, to each their own.

I used voice to type for this so if it’s messed up I don’t care enough to proofread

Ryan's Gambit

I enjoy all of the stories that you narrate Mr Aiello however I find your use of g he expression "pardon my french" totally insulting. I am French and the7 words you followed with are definitely NOT French!!!

Awful Ending.

Set up to be so huge of an ending from the opening. Then we end up with just another nail biter waiting on the next book with zero explanation of what was happening in the beginning. I can't say it any other way besides, that was a horrible ending.

Was this half of a book?

I love these books and the performance, but it seems like they are releasing them prematurely. Maybe next time wait to release until there is more of a storey. I mean, I could understand if it was 12+ hours, but 7+? Yeah, feels like I am being fleesed.

Great performance and writing style

I was disappointed to hear the epilogue, as nothing really happened in the story. The characters were good and the reading was fantastic, but I feel like I sat through a sitcom with no substance. it seems to have been written to set up the series, but not provide any meat only to get you to buy the next book.

Blathering nonsense

Trying to fit to many one liners together in a fast tempo rambling babbling mess. It wasn't for me.

repeat

story just seems to keep repeating itself over and over. the first books were great, even the second set, but it just seems to drag out a storyline that should be retired.
