I'm Horrible! Thanks for this awesome opportunity!

You read similar books as my boyfriend's brother does. He tries to recommend The Rho Agenda Series to my boyfriend all the time. It is a military scifi that he says is one of his favorites series of all time. You may have already read it, but I linked the first book!

I'm going to make your day. If you have Kindle Unlimited and or Audible membership (if you don't then why not?), search for The Rho Agenda, The Second Ship by Richard Phillips.

Amazon allows you to Read and listen For Free on Audible for no extra charge once you borrow the book on the Kindle app (it may be 2 or 3 bucks for the Audible version of the 1st book in the series -- It's worth every penny you may have to spend too accomplish this whole scheme).

Even if you just do the one month or two months that it will take you to listen to the nine audiobooks in this series, it is the best hard science fiction series I've found in a while and the most suspenseful and exciting by far.

The narrator is Macleod Andrews and he is exactly what you're looking for in a narrator from the description in your post. Trust me, if it wasn't, I wouldn't be spending 15 or 20 minutes writing this "roadmap" out for you!!!

KEEP THIS IN MIND AS YOU BEGIN:

When you begin this audiobook, it's going to seem like a teenager-geared sci-fi book with maybe a little too much "drama" in it, but trust me. Stick with it until the middle of that first book and it starts to get good, really good!!!

The science contained in this series is super-specific and detailed and not glossed over like some authors tend to do. Richard Phillips (not the Captain Phillips from the Maersk Alabama cargo ship that got taken hostage in the Indian Ocean...Lol...different dude) is a great writer and with Macleod Andrews narrating, it is badass! You won't find a better pairing! The second book is fucking really good. I'm on the third now, and I'm telling you, it's the best sci-fi I've listened to in months, maybe my favorite series I've ever come across (still have a lot of books left to listen to) and interestingly enough, every time I think I've found the best sci-fi series bc this guy Macleod Andrews is narrating, I end up finding one that's even better.

The plot is simply fascinating. Just when you think shit can't possibly get more complicated...BOOM...another crazy, fucked-up twist. So far the entire series is one giant crescendo that builds and builds and just never seems to let up!

So, just follow the links below and check out his work. You will not be disappointed.

Macleod Andrews does characters and accents better than anyone I've found. He does the narration parts in character like you were mentioning and he is uber-talented at it. It's like listening to an amazing movie that lasts for days and days in these multi-voice narrations he is usually narrating.

Project Eden Thriller by Brett Battles is another of his narrations. There are 7 books in that series.

It's so funny that you posted this, bc I was literally just talking to the guy on Twitter, telling him how much I was enjoying this Rho Agenda series bc of that very aspect of it. He has that voice that can be anyone with any accent and it flows so well. You will end up losing hours of sleep listening, and it's sooo worth it.

NOTE:

I do have both the $9.99 Kindle Unlimited membership and the $14.99(?) Audible membership, and I think I may have had to pay a few dollars for the Audible version (it's way cheaper once you have the Kindle book purchased (or borrowed from the Kindle Unlimited Library) of the 1st book, but I know the 2nd through the 9th books were all "Read and Listen For Free" under the Kindle app, so I went ahead and downloaded all the audiobooks...just in case they decided to change their mind about that bc it was so good!

Damn I have to stop being a fanboy and go back to listening. Good luck with it and if you need help getting it to work out to listen for free just message me.

Enjoy!!!
