I am in love with the Metamor City Podcast! I have enjoyed everything I've heard so far and this novel was no different. This book was full of action and excitement. There are almost two different stories contained in this one book and I really liked that. The author blended the two halves of the book perfectly by intertwining almost every character and their actions. The world is so interesting and fun to read about. I have already continued listening to the podcast, and I would read anything t ...more

Making the Cut is an intriguing, well-thought-out, well-produced roller coaster that had me aching to listen to the next episode. It's a real page-turner, whether you're actually reading it or not. There wasn't a character I couldn't identify with or relate to, and that includes Victor and even Malcom ard'Valos, the vampire prince. These are real, fleshed-out people populating Metamor City, and they make the world function in a way I can't help but admire. The threads of plot are woven with grea ...more

There's so much to this podcast novel that it took me a long time to figure out what to write here. I thoroughly enjoyed Making the Cut (so much so that I left the author a bunch of comments after listening to each chapter). Part of what made this story so good is the rich worldbuilding of Metamor City and the communities within. This made for a fascinating backdrop for an intricate, emotional plot with some great twists and turns. This story explored a variety of themes from various angles, whi ...more

4.5 stars WOW!

As I listened I found on numerous occasions I stopped doing what I was doing and started listening intently as I'd been drawn into the story so deeply. Drawn on so many levels! Action, suspense, character aw, world mezmerizing, and story events and connections.

Chris's ability to weave characters, a magical world, and plot together is mind blowing. I love all the aspencts here!

This was a lot of fun. Some cool spy action in a futuristic city, lotsa human drama, and a wonderful tone and atmosphere throughout. I highly recommend subscribing to this podcast thru the iTunes and taking a listen to all of them from the beginning.

Metamor City takes place in a world in which sci-fi and fantasy meet. There's flying cars, but also vampires, psychics, wizards, and the like. This is an action packed story with a large cast of characters and interesting plot twists.

Making the Cut focuses on a group of friends with psychic powers who are coming of age. When we first meet them, they're using their psychic powers to cheat at basketball and they complain that they can't use their powers more openly because people without superpowe

I'm revisiting my long ago love of podiobooks. So many free, quality audiobooks presented in podcast format. Now, with a podcast app, you can download podcast book episodes all at once, and play consecutively just like chapters in an audiobook.
The Metamor City stories are some of my favorites. Highly recommended for lovers of sci fi fantasy supernatural stories. And Chris Lester does a great job, starting with the Huntress, collaborating with talented voice actors and writers.

Hi there! I'm Chris Lester, and I tell stories. I've been doing it for as long as I can remember; whether the audience was a playmate, a classroom, a parent, or a room full of strangers, I've always had a soft spot for a tale well told.

I grew up on stories of places that never were, of science fiction and fantasy, heroes and gods. I was captivated by ideas of transformation and transcendence, of p

“It’s not a question of what you want. No sane person ever WANTS a war. But if you see outsiders as a threat and believe that an armed defense is the only way you’re going to be safe from them, then you’re going to find yourselves in the middle of a war whether you want one or not.” 1 likes
