When an experiment to study quantum uncertainty goes spectacularly wrong, physics student Bill Rustad and his friends find that they have accidentally created an inter-dimensional portal. They connect to Outland - an alternate Earth with identical geology, but where humans never evolved. The group races to establish control of the portal before the government, the military, or evildoers can take it away. Then everything changes when the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts in an explosion large enough to destroy civilization and kill half the planet.

Not on the level of the bobiverse, but entertaining enough. I'm curious where the author will take it in the sequels.

AD 2204. An alien shipwreck is discovered on a planet at the very limits of human expansion - so Security Director Feriton Kayne selects a team to investigate. The ship’s sinister cargo not only raises bewildering questions but could also foreshadow humanity’s extinction. It will be up to the team to bring back answers, and the consequences of this voyage will change everything. Back on Earth, we can now make deserts bloom and extend lifespans indefinitely, so humanity seems invulnerable. We therefore welcomed the Olyix to Earth when they contacted us. But were the Olyix a blessing or a curse?

Good story, building up to something bigger coming in the following books. Great performance by John Lee, as usual.

When Ivan Pritchard signs on as a newbie aboard the Mad Astra, it's his final, desperate stab at giving his wife and children the life they deserve. He can survive the hazing of his crewmates, and how many times, really, can near-zero g make you vomit? But there's another challenge looming out there, in the farthest reaches of human exploration, that will test every man, woman and AI on the ship - and will force Ivan to confront the very essence of what makes him human.

Good story and great narration. Not quite as as good as the bobiverse but solid.

The Hundred Worlds have withstood invasion by the relentless Hok for decades. The human worlds are strong, but the Hok have the resources of a thousand planets behind them, and their fleets attack in endless waves. The long war has transformed the Hundred Worlds into heavily fortified star systems. Their economies are geared for military output, and they raise specialized soldiers to save our species. Assault Captain Derek Straker is one such man among many.

The story was okay but nothing ground braking. The characters were too cliché for my taste with at least half of them being outright unlikeable. We have the smart one that doesn't understand social cues and etiquette, player dude making constant awful sexual jokes and hero-sports-guy calling everyone brainiacs. The rest was just outright forgettable but at least not annoying. A lot of the dialogue was rather cliché as well with some brain-dead nationalist stereotype sprinkled on top.

On a positive note, the voice actor did a great job with the material he had and the hard sci-fi elements of the story were mostly believable.
