Storm Over Warlock


Read by R. J. Davis

(3.8 stars; 34 reviews)

The Throg task force struck the Terran survey camp a few minutes after dawn, without warning, and with a deadly precision which argued that the aliens had fully reconnoitered and prepared that attack. Eye-searing lances of energy lashed back and forth across the base with methodical accuracy. And a single cowering witness, flattened on a ledge in the heights above, knew that when the last of those yellow-red bolts fell, nothing human would be left alive down there.

And so Shann Lantee, most menial of the Terrans attached to the camp on the planet Warlock, was left alone and weaponless in the strange, hostile world, the human prey of the aliens from space and the aliens on the ground alike. (Summary from Front Cover )

Fun old-fashioned scifi


(5 stars)

I always love to read or listen to old science fiction from 50 years ago - and Storm over Warlock is no exception. A fun story, a neat glimpse into the future as it might have been, and a great reader with a classic Southern drawl. RJ Davis reminds me of the reader of the professionally produced Dragonriders of Pern series, and he brings a down-home flavor to a story set in a fantastic world. I can't wait for more!

Good Book, bad reader


(2 stars)

I enjoyed this book as a bit of bubblegum sci-fi. However, the narrator, R.J. Davis, has a thick southern accent, slurs the letter s and mispronounces several words. I would suggest he not be allowed to narrate anything further.

Reading Good


(5 stars)

English is not my mother tongue but in spite of this the reader, with his charming southern USA dialect, could be well understood and I listened with thankfulness and great enjoyment. :)

great story terrible sound quality


(2 stars)

The Story is really great, But the sound quality is so poor that you cannot hear 30 percent of what it said.

Love it.
