AudioBook Review: Uncharted: Countermeasure, Bytes of Life # 1 by Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey

AudioBook Review:

It should come as no surprise to anyone that I truly enjoy the Countermeasure Series, and these short Bytes of Life extras are no exception. Uncharted spends 48 hours in the life of Trevor’s parents, Conor and Maeve. Written as a prequel to the Countermeasure series, but actually released after both of the full length stories, this Byte holds a special poignancy for those who are familiar with the series and the characters.

While setting the stage for the underlying personal mystery that threads through Trevor’s life, Tim Gerard Reynolds brings the characters to life with his mellifluous delivery and that special “something” that provides added emotional impact to the character’s voices. With small inflection and tonal changes, beautiful enunciation and that ‘touch of Eire in his voice, this short comes alive, and will bring reader’s familiar with the series to tears.

This is a lovely addition to the series, as an introduction the sense of characterization and emotional honesty that these authors bring: and wrap it all up neatly in a mystery. What more could you possibly want? A few more hours to listen to the rest of the series, or a weekend off to read the entire thing!

About Chris Almeida

Chris Almeida (also known as C. Almeida) began writing children's stories at a very young age. Born in Brazil but currently living in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Chris' life took a totally different course when technology came into play, and the following 17 years were spent delving deep into the world of programming and web design.

It was in 2010, when Chris began role playing online as a hobby, that writing worm its way back into the picture. This time, writing storylines for the role playing group.

The ideas and plots created for the game awoke the inner writer and a few months later, together with partner in crime C. Aubrey, began writing romantic erotica.

Now, still together, they have written a number of short stories and novels and are currently working on book two of their series. Through it all they have continued to enjoy role playing through their favorite characters.
