Rating: 4 of 5
Book cover of  Para Bellum: Ark Royal, Book 13

On her last mission, HMS Invincible discovered an alien threat beyond human understanding: a sentient virus that has already absorbed a number of intelligent races into its multitude and now intends to do the same to humanity. Defeat means the end of everything, the end of existence as nothing more than mindless host-bodies, the end of humanity and its alien allies alike. The stakes could not be higher. As a deeply divided humanity struggles to prepare a defense, with enemies inside and outside the human sphere just lurking to strike, Invincible is sent deep into alien space on what should have been a simple reconnaissance mission. But, as Captain Shields and his crew begin their mission, it rapidly becomes clear that a juggernaut is bearing down on Earth.... And, no matter what they do, they may never make it home again.

Book cover of  Starship Pandora: A Star Force Drama

The mysterious alien race known as the Ancients vanished before Earth's last ice age - but not before building interconnected rings that form a highway system across the galaxy. Humanity has used these rings for years but has never figured out how to build its own, or even how to alter the connection pattern. Now, the Imperial starship Pandora is on a mission to discover and explore new interstellar connection points. While on Venus, an unexpected guest arrives - Marvin, a rogue robot who puts his strange mind to work on reconnecting the rings into a new pattern. And everything goes haywire. Grotesque aliens come through the ring and overrun Pandora's base camp. The good news is the aliens can be killed. The bad news is the aliens keep coming, and no one knows how to turn off the ring that leads directly to their home world. And even if the aliens are defeated - there's still Marvin to contend with.

Join quizmaster Jason Zenobia for The Ultimate Harry Potter Quiz and find out who can rightfully wear the crown as the king or queen of Harry Potter knowledge. Perhaps you’ve read the books from cover to cover three times each, or you’ve visited the studio tour every year since it opened...but how much of it all can you remember? Do you know, for instance, which animal each character casts as their Patronus charm? Can you reel off the names of all of the shops in Hogsmeade? What is Mandrake root used for...and which two types of Dragon still roam the British Isles? There are two ways to play this quiz. For the first set of tracks, the quizmaster reads out 10 questions at a time before confirming the 10 correct answers - this is great if you’ve got a pen and paper and want to pit your wits against your friends. Alternatively, if you play the second set of tracks, each question is answered in turn - perfect for a car journey, where the whole family can join in. The quiz covers a range of subjects, from individual characters to themes such as spells and potions or Quidditch. The questions are based on the Harry Potter story as told in the books rather than the films - so remember this before shouting out the first answer that comes into your head! This is the perfect audiobook for any Harry Potter fan.
