I started listening to this trilogy at the very neginning of book one and have loved every minute of it since. JC is excellent at building storylines, backgrounds, and leaving you hanging every week. I guarantee you will mutter at least one expletive at the end of each podcast because of the suspensful buildup and the anticipation of next weeks episode. If you are new to the series, go back and listen to book one first. I also recommend you check out Scott Sigler and his podcasts if you like JC's work. Also check out the website and the stuff in second life that goes along with the podcast. It's pretty cool. Keep up the hard work JC!
