    Aliens, Neslins and Brad, Oh My!

    Connor's Gambit by Z. Gottlieb is the first book I've received to review that's in audible format, so this is quite a new experience for me, just like it's the lead character Brad Johnson's first adventure with aliens. And what a trip this is! After Brad sees an alien spaceship and it seems no one else did, he begins to doubt his sanity. But when his suspicions are confirmed and his wife, Shinny, reveals who and what she really is, his life not only changes forever, but so does everything he thought he knew about his life and the universe which surrounds him -- aliens do exist -- he should know, he's married to one! And, boy, does the plot thicken after that. In Z. Gottlieb's fun world there were times that the space technology seemed so realistic I was wondering if the author had some sort of NASA experience. From alien creature descriptions, their lifestyles and their amazing high-tech technology, to Brad's awakening and newfound belief in UFOs, and his acceptance to jump right in and help, whilst learning on the job; this book has a lot to offer any self-respecting science fiction fan and space cadet! A few of my favourite things? There's so many to choose from. I loved Brad (obviously!). Then there's the scary Neslins, the Aneplè, the battle cruiser Zuonopy and all its features and Brad and Shinny's son, Dane with his talking dragon Yeshawliq. I need a talking dragon, can you make one out of a 3D printer for me please? The narrator's voice was different to what I expected at first, however, Charlie Thurston pulled me into the action and kept me hooked right through to the satisfying end, which is slightly left open for more, whilst at the same time it's also a fully completed standalone story with major plot threads all tied up nicely. I'm so pleased to have discovered Z. Gottleib's space world and I cannot wait to read or even listen to the next instalment. I'm sure it will definitely be worth the wait! Z. Gottlieb has captured the essence of space travel, alien life and the rules of their universe spectacularly. I really enjoy my time (all 13 hours of it) listening to this space opera, and the fact that I was listening (instead of reading) really made me feel like I was there, thrown in deep with the characters and their stories, part of their crew! I also bought the book, too!

    Awesome book

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book. I realize this is sci fi, but it’s much more than that. Loved the interplay between Brad and Shinny (and of course all the sci fi elements). I felt in good hands with this authors story, and am impressed that this is a debut novel. I look forward to reading more work from this author!
