Description

There are thousands of bounty hunters across the galaxy. Solid professionals that take jobs based on the credits the bounties afford. They follow the letter of the law so they can maximize those credits.

Licensed, bonded, legal.

Then there's Roak.

Deadly, unstoppable, invisible.

No criminal or military records. No files or folders with his name on them. No cybernetic implants to track. No proof he even exists except for a reputation for getting the job done. Roak is the bounty hunter called when someone is looking for the opposite of licensed, bonded, legal.

Now someone has ignored his reputation and made a very big mistake.

Double-crossed and left to die, Roak survives and sets out to exact vengeance and get paid what he is owed.

But he's not unreasonable.

While his fee may have just gone up, the bloody, brutal revenge is on the house.

"Just pay me what you owe me"

4.5 out of 5 stars

I don't know why I can't shake this feeling. Roak reminded me of Guardians of the Galaxy, the main character had the same cocky demeanor while still getting the job done. The comparison stops at the main character, though, this was much bloodier and much more violent than that film.

Roak was a really enjoyable main character to follow around. He has his own style and does things for no-nonsense reasons. He gets the job done efficiently and as quickly as possible. He's a great bounty hunter who is self-admittedly a little broken.

The story itself was really enjoyable. The first part, the reader isn't really sure who Roak is or why he's doing the things he's doing. But after a little while, we quickly figure out who he is and what makes him tick. The cast of characters he meets along the way to getting paid range from completely insane to really enjoyable.

This was an intergalactic thrill ride with elements for a lot of different readers.

Andrew B. Wehrlen does a great job narrating this, allowing this fast-paced story to play out quickly. I really enjoyed his narration and will continue to support books narrated by him.

I was given a free copy of this book. It has not affected my review in any way.

Not deadpool but still a merc with a mouth

Bible and Wehrlen are a powerful combination. I have numerous audiobooks written and narrated by this dynamic duo. They have never dissapointed. Be ready to be whisked away to an expanded universe that (if you have the other books) are familiar with. If they are new to you then this is a great spot to start and expand from. You will find honor, betrayal, acts of heroism, despicable bad guys, and much more. Space battles, bar fights, syndicates, AI's and so much more. Highly recommend. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I liked the story. I would give a sequel a chance. The narrator did a fine job. I will keep an eye on Jakes work. Hi John and Sarah.

Unstoppable!!

Well, what a ride!! I honestly didn't know what to expect going into this because I didn't read any review before listening. What I didn't expect was to devour this and absolutely adore it. It was fun, action packed and unstoppable.

Roak was such an amazing character. Truly a bad ass with a heart of gold (well a little bit anyway). He is a bounty hunter, he will do what's needed to get the job done and get paid, but when his latest assignment is over, the man who hired him refuses to pay. Of course Roak can't have that, he did the job he was given so deserves to be paid, and what follows is one heck of a long, bloody battle to "Just pay me what you owe me".

I loved Roak's character. You don't really get a sense of who he is till you are knee deep in the story. At the start he comes across as a cocky, no nonsense, deadly man, but eventually you get to see who he really is, and it just made me like him more. He is cocky, brass and bold, but he is also honest, thoughtful and kind. He just want's to do his job and get paid, but double cross him and it's about to get real!!!

In all, this was an amazing read. Brilliantly written and executed, with characters that you can't help but love and an adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat, it's a must read!! I really hope we see more from Roak.

Andrew B. Wehrlen did a good job with the narration, he read the story well and was clear and concise. I just feel like he didn't have a lot of different tones for some of the characters, and there were some accents that were hard to listen to!

Bounty hunter with princples...that's different

"I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."
I liked the way Jake Bible creates his characters, they tend to have more depth then other Sci-Fi books I have listened to. Roak is a character I can get behind and cheer him on thru all his difficulties. This is the second book I have listened to by the narrator Andrew Wehrien, he does an excellent job in telling the story and becoming the characters.

A space version of then movie Payback

Fun, short ride. If you know the movie Payback, this book is very, very close to the feeling and sentiment throughout that movie. Its still fun. Its not too heavy on the technology, so I didn't find myself nitpicking here or there...just accepted and went with the storyline. The ending worked for me and didn't have that marketing color that pervades a large number of authors.

Considering the length of the book, you might want to wait for a sale or such.

too short

I can not say enough good things about Roak! He is just the man for the job. I love the style of the author. And that is why,... I am writing this review.
I laugh out loud with the authors whit, and the performance could not be better.
Only complaint, the books are too short!!!

I absolutely loved this!

I have listen to many audiobooks and this is the first one in a long time that has captured my attention to the point I couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait for the next one and I highly recommend this one.
Happy listening!
