Publisher's Summary

He wasn't expected to survive, and for 20 years, he has managed to stay off their radar. Until now. Until her.
Gryffin was the sole survivor of The Foundation's experimental project to transform human children into hybrid cyborgs - half human, half machine. The program failed and he was sent on a one way trip into The Outer Sector where he was left for dead. He has survived for 20 years by suppressing his human emotions and embracing his machine side.
Officer Terra Rush believes in her duty to the Foundation. The Sector needs to be prepared for colonization, and nothing can stop her from doing her job... except him. When Gryffin saves her from an attack, Terra uncovers a terrible secret. The Foundation has been lying to her... and maybe they still are.
They have labelled Gryffin a killing machine, yet he acts more human than many of The Foundation's leaders. He has awakened intense feelings in Terra that throw her loyalties into question, and even though he pushes her away, she is determined to find out the truth about the cyborg program.
Gryffin refuses to be a mindless soldier, yet escaping The Foundation's control and stopping the colonization of his home will require Terra's help. Can Gryffin overcome the machine inside and trust her? Or will getting in touch with his human emotions destroy him once and for all?

Great sci-fi story!!

Any additional comments?

I am a sci-fi and horror fan and I am a tough reader to please, so when I began with this audiobook I wasn't sure what to expect. Now I can say that it exceeded all of my expectations, it is AMAZING. The story is pretty original, refreshing and very well put together. Characters are nicely developed and constant tension between Griffin and Terra was intriguing for me. I highly recommend this audiobook and I can't wait for the next chapter!

Part man, part machine, always angry.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would absolutely recommend Ares. Great story , great performance. Just great


What was one of the most memorable moments of Ares?

Quite a sad part when Griffin is taken in to custody


Which character – as performed by Keith Michaelson – was your favourite?

Probably the same as most people, Griffin.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes I would have liked to listen to it all at once but at just over 16 hours it was too much for 1 sitting


Any additional comments?

Normally most science fiction books send a lot of time talking about how the technology in their universe works. Ares is a more character driven story and I enjoyed it immensely.A fantastic story and a wonderful performance. I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via AudiobookBlast dot com.
