We Will Build: The Kurtherian Gambit, Book 8 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The world needs protecting - before they can build in space they have to get into space.
There is a "false queen" attacking vampires in Asia - Bethany Anne sends her own to look into that.
The moon base needs to be settled, can Team BMW make it happen? Do they have enough people? Can they get the right people to help?
John's cousin is now part of the team. Will she make it?
There is a group looking to find them and they are using Barb to do it.
This is the first book in the second arc (books 8-14) for The Kurtherian Gambit. The stakes are raised a lot higher!
Please note: There is flagrantly foul language in this novel. The main character does not have a problem with cussing, just uninspired cussing.
If you haven't listened to the previous books, you will need to go back to number one (the book does not explain the characters and previous relationships/deeds).

I am actually looking forward to this. The Queen Bitch in space with a whole universe of baddie’s (censored by Amazon)s to kick. Scary thought indeed. However, we’re not really their just yet. Luckily the author is not rushing things so there are still plenty of vampire (and werewolf) business going on back on Earth.
In one sense you could say that the book is more of the same. More of the Queen Bitch, more of the fun bantering between all the members of the team and of course more of the (censored by Amazon) kicking.
However, at the same time the story moves forward, the characters evolve, new (censored by Amazon)hats pop up for a round of educational spanking (some of them for a life long lesson…all five minutes of it), new team members are introduced and most importantly Bethany’s master plan progresses.
I do not think that I have read any book series before that managed to keep the core values and the same formula for so long and still keep me interested. The author makes the story and characters evolve in a way that it is new and old at the same time keeping the good parts that make the series what it is while adding new situations and new problems to solve, either by engineering or good old violence.
In this particular part of the story the author throws in a vampire bitch wannabee that needs to be dealt with and a few minor problems such as how to put a base on the moon. You know, just the usual stuff in a days work for a Queen Bitch. The latter little issue turns out to finally put the media spotlights on TQB industries which of course opens a new can of worms (translation: lots of new story opportunities for future books) for Bethany.
So, as usual, a really good and fun to read book.
I think her attitude of take no prisoners is the trait I find most appealing when it comes to her loyalty and love for her people.
This a great book and an even better series. I also enjoy the fact that a new one comes out about every month. I get my Kurtherian fix just about the time I am about to go into withdrawal.
I never used to check my email, because it was mostly spam but now I check every day to see if Michael's new release has come out. His auto notice is really appreciated.
My wish list is clone Michael Anderle so he can write more and still have a life.
back to the review - I found the 1st book for free on Kindle on Sunday, finished it in just a couple hours (I read very fast) and immediately bought the next 10 books. It's Weds morning and I'm starting on book 8 so I came back to get the rest of the series before I get stuck somewhere with no internet connection and I'm out of books to read :) Keep up the good work Michael - this series is on my "keep to read again" list and you're my newest favorite author (& I copy/pasted this review to all the books I've read so far) thanks for the wild ride - Karen
SPOILERS - STOP READING IF YOU DON"T WANT ANY HINTS:
In this book you start to focus on the hacking aspects of the story. Great! I'm a techie and love the stuff. However, some of things you reference just don't make sense to a technologist. For example, in one sentence you say, "You couldn't trace me if I drew you a DNS route...". This is not really a thing. DNS is a server or sometimes router used to lookup and convert domain names to IP addresses. While, in a convoluted way, this somewhat amusing, I would recommend something like, "You couldn't trace me if I sent you a packet capture directly from my NIC.". Not that I am trying to write for you. You are the author, and a good one, at that! I would recommend, however, that if you are going to keep writing more about hacking and hackers that you have someone familiar with technology proof the story and maybe provide some guidance. This is assuming you are not a techie, yourself. Anyway, love the books. Keep up the great work. I will keep buying and reading.
PS - I am happy to proof any books for techie lingo. Suggestions, comments and time would be gratis. If interested, just let me know how to contact you to get started.

By now the character list is long and it's becoming increasingly obvious that this is the story of white people saving the world which is surely problematic in this modern age. There is one token black American, prized for his strength, respect and loyalty to the white leader of the group (no one can miss the trope). There is one token Asian American whose ethnicity is limited to an introductory comment on his parents and never mentioned again because his main feature is being quiet and biddable (another trope).
Given that most of the characters in the book are sourced from the US armed forces and US tech and science communities. You couldn't have such a vanilla group of people given those source groups.
And in this book the villain is a Japanese woman with Chinese minions. Seriously? The two countries have a long history of conflict yet somehow this is supposed to work as a theme?
"Good things are worth waiting for" is an aphorism for a good reason!
Fantastic books thanks
