Nebula Risen: A Roak: Galactic Bounty Hunter Novel
Written by: Jake Bible
Narrated by: Andrew B. Wehrlen
I requested this audible book and the review is voluntary.
I love Jake Bible's books that I have read so far! This is one heck of a ride! It has everything a good sci-fi should have: aliens, action, suspense, an AI that is not quite right, intrigue, danger, a bounty hunter with some morals when need be, sprinkle of humor, fast ship, and faster talking. Great plot, wonderful characters, and loved

This is an excellent, fast-paced 2nd instalment in the Galactic Bounty Hunter series. Roak is on the run - simultaneously towards his intended target, and away from some mysterious black-clad woman from his past. I can’t wait to find out who she is...on to the next book I go!

Take portions of “Blade Runner”, action from “Aliens” and combine it with a little bit of “Fight Club” and you get a sense of what “Nebula Risen” which is the second book in the Roak Galactic Bounty Hunter series, is all about. This is the latest book released by Jake Bible; a rather prolific science fiction and fantasy author. The audiobook edition is very well narrated by Andrew B. Wehrlen who himself narrates many books in the same genre. What could go wrong when you place one of the most ove ...more

Review originally published at:

Bounty hunter Roak is forcefully hired to locate and bring Johnny Nebula, one of the greatest heavy-grav fighter, who died during a fight. During his search, Roak will meet an old ‘friend’, who will just increase Roak’s worries.

I really enjoyed Roak’s cheeky personality and his conversations with ‘Hessa’ the special and quirky AI in Roak’s spaceship. I always appreciate when there is good humor in books, and there are quite

"Roak, just Roak."
Jake Bible is a master at creating this type of book: the sardonic loner bounty hunter, best in his class, fast talking, even faster action and always battling extreme, life threatening situations. Or worse, at risk of perhaps not getting his fee in chits (cash); never credits, thank you very much. This book is no different. It is fast, it is fun, it is very easy to read and enjoy as Roak finds himself trapped into taking on the job of tracking down a dead

Bounty Hunter Fast, Fun, Quick Reading

"Nebula Risen: A Roak Galactic Bounty Hunter Novel," is the second of the series, written by Mr. Jake Bible. It is a fast, fun, quick reading story of a determined loner, bounty hunter: Roak.

The story has Roak (no first name, no "Mr.," just Roak) being manipulated into taking a "hunt," for a gambling syndicate's premiere fighter, thought to have died in his last bout. Roak, accompanied by his quirky, sentient AI "Hessa," picks up the trail, encounters crim

Another great addition to the series. These books are just addicting. They are fun, humorous and very entertaining. This book help make a very unpleasant road trip (evacuating for Irma) a lot more tolerable.

Even though this book is part of an ongoing series It can be listened to as a standalone.

Jake Bible knows how to write a story that pulls you in from the start and never lets go. Between the action, intrigue, and suspense there is always something happening. Add in all the snarky sarcastic

Roak, so famous and so effcient and competent that most know their beat before he has barely started.
This is my first outing with Roak but he is very well written as an uncaring and direct if aged hunter. when you live for the hunt and even your AI seems to spend as much time trying to make you more humane, then your know your in trouble.
The tale of Roaks subsequent frame up job and his deal spans a worthwhile size although it can be a little long i did find it a nice change following his thoug
Our famous or infamous, depending how you look at it, spaceman bounty hunter engages in one of his strangest hunts. Roak is hired to prove that one of the Orbs greatest fighters, Jonny Nebula, is in fact dead by producing the body. Orbs’ fighters are similar to our MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) league. Roak over turns one rock after another to discover the facts and fantasy assigned to Jonny Nebula. In so doing Roak made many enemies who wanted the truth to remain unknown. As it turns out the truth i ...more

The second outing for Roak, see's him forced unto the hunt for a dead orbs fighter. This builds on the first book and is a much better story line. The introduction of a partner in Hessa, the slightly eccentric AI, helps bring out Roak's character. Looking forward too book three and hopefully finding out more about the mysterious lady in black from his past. ...more

Great book in series

Really,really enjoyed this second book in series as much as I did the first. I'm certainly hoping for more Roak in the future. Big fan of Author Jake Bible who I only recently discovered.

Roak and Hessa are a brilliant duo, they complement each other, even though one is 'human' and the other is an insane, sentient, A.I.
The story races along, it's crazy and funny, and I stayed awake until 2am reading it because I couldn't put it down.

Jake Bible knocks it out of the park again!

I really enjoy Roak's adventures. Plenty of action to keep you on the edge of your seat, or up late reading lol. I really hope there will be a third book in this story.

Great addition to the series

Light hearted space faring adventure. It is entertaining and humorous at times. If you want to read something similar to this check out the OMEGA FORCE series.

Good Second Book.

Although there is lots of violence it is still a fun ride. Got a little more into Roak's background in this book. I hope there will be more..

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Great Story! The narration was perfect and each character had a distinct voice.

This review is for the audiobook version

This is the second in the Roak series. Much like the first, Roak gets a bounty and things don't work out. The galaxy just hasn't realised that if you don't mess with Roak everything will be so much better. They are starting to learn that in this book. Roak is forced into searching for a dead person and along the way we are introduced to some shadowy figure from his past.

Lots of action, an uppity AI and dumb lizardmen make for a really enjoyable book. Andr

Enjoyable ride.

Roark is an interesting character. Wrought with flaws, but definitely likable as he takes one assignment to the next. I look forward to reading the next saga in the series.

Careful. This book will suck you right in.

I was actually surprised at how quickly I was drawn into this book.

I was unfamiliar with the universe or the protagonist (Roak), but immediately related to the character and felt at home in the Galactic Bounty Hunter universe.

The story follows an unconventional bounty hunter on a seemingly impossible job and keeps the twists, action, and intrigue flowing non-stop throughout the entire book.

I haven't read the previous Roak novel yet, but even though this
