Ages 13+
Seven centuries into the future, aliens and humans compete for the greatest prize in the universe: the Galaxy Bowl trophy. Quarterback Quentin Barnes enters his third season at the helm of the Ionath Krakens. He's reshaped the team in his image, and the time for excuses is over; it's win, or be replaced.

Quentin's championship quest carries him and his teammates across the galaxy in a brutal twelve-game season fraught with injury and death. But he faces more than just on-field challenges. As he enters a free-agent year, several franchises vie for his services. Will he play for a new team, or will he remain with his beloved Krakens? And then there’s the slight distraction that someone, somewhere, is trying to assassinate him—and he doesn't know why.

Reviews

Best of the series so far by Zack (Posted on 2/27/2019)
At this point, the characters are firmly established, as are the actors playing them, and slipping back into the world of the GFL when starting this new title was like meeting up with old friends…very odd friends.

The space-opera-style intrigue is on full display in this title, and that’s what makes this third entry in the GFL series easily the most engaging of the first three. Quentin is under the gun and needing to produce a winning season, the politics of free agency are on full display, and there’s the “slight distraction” of somebody trying to assassinate Quentin. And while Quentin definitely isn’t a rookie anymore, it seems that he still has plenty to learn.

Sound design and acting are well up to GA standards in The All-Pro.

The production is made better than the first two by being all there in one ten-hour chunk as opposed to split into two parts. I suppose if you buy all parts of a GA production at once, that doesn’t interrupt the flow of the story, but I tend to want to try out the first part of a story before going all-in, and even if you do have both parts set to play back-to-back, the story is still interrupted by the end credits of the first part and the opening credits of the second part, so I still think that having this story all in one big chunk is better than having it split in two.
What a Cliffhanger by John (Posted on 1/1/2018)
This series gets better and better with each entry. It has great character development and amazing action.
Very engaging, despite mediocre writing by Catdaddy (Posted on 11/29/2017)
A series inherently not as sophisticated as other GraphicAudio offerings, GFL nevertheless remains consistently engaging.

The excellent audio production and voice performances help bolster the middling script. The writing is clunky, with repetitive sentences, such as: “I‘ll FEED schematics into the main ship’s FEED” instead of, “I’ll LOAD schematics into the main ships FEED”. Or: “he sat by himSELF looking like his old dejected SELF, instead of, e.g., “he sat ALONE, looking like his old dejected SELF“. Of more concern is the continued use of excessive, often unnecessary levels of fake-statistical detail. This is evidenced in the opening sequence, where the emcee of the animal-riding sport Is engagingly revving up the crowd, but the dialogue has her awkwardly spewing off numbers. The conversations of the spectators are also discussing minutae, wth unnecessary details of another made-up sport. Even a recorded lecture that Quentin is studying is presented in full, giving us deep, somewhat dry background, much of which is extraneous to the narrative.

That said, when not describing an actual game, the GFL series does tackle issues like racism and prejudice in fresh and intriguing ways. (Also, there is a scene involving a barbecue dinner which is so funny it actually hurts.) Once again, the performances carry the characters, and the characters carry the story. This volume becomes increasingly engaging and, despite an overabundance of minutiae in the exposition and constant overuse of extraneous statistics in the game action, it has great momentum. You’ll even learn a bit about our earthbound gridiron while you’re at it.

The violence is easily PG-13, especially on the field, but there is no strong language and little sensuality.
Best one Yet! by Tad (Posted on 10/31/2017)
I can't say enough about what a good merger this series is between SciFi/Fantasy and pro football. Full disclosure: I never read the books, so my POV is just that of a listener, but I'm finding myself truly interested in the entire show, not just the action scenes. Familiar story arc with the athlete going from zero to hero, but it's great drama nonetheless. Love the fact that many of the GFL teams are owned by mobsters, and the plot twists that result from this.
Even Better! by Armand (Posted on 4/9/2017)
In the beginning I had to look up the word "Pedipalp" to understand and visualize what the characters looked like! Now, at this level, the wonderful mental visualization is outstanding and thoroughly entertaining! GREAT SERIES! I would like to see this series turned into an Anime or CG movie like Avatar! Excellent!
Intriguing by rafael (Posted on 2/14/2017)
It's nice to see how Quinton has evolved and how naïve he still is. The plot thickens.
good by douglas (Posted on 2/4/2017)
this book was great! Can't wait for the next one!
A single, a double, and now a home run! by John (Posted on 2/2/2017)
I’ll say it. I’m hooked. I already love this story, having read the source books many, many times. And I was a little turned off by how different this production is from the audiobook. In the first volume (The Rookie) I was initially critical, but satisfied at the end. In the second volume (The Starter), I was more than satisfied. Perhaps even quite pleased. With the All-Pro, it’s official - I’m in it for the long haul. The story is so engagingly told by the huge cast, it adds another dimension to the story entirely.

Standout performance this time around is the actor who portrays George Starcher. Wow, a great, touching performance. I’ve pre-ordered the next volume and simply cannot wait to get it. Well done, GraphicAudio!
Breathtaking by Amy (Posted on 1/10/2017)
This was such a bloody ride. A twisty, turny, emotional roller coaster. I enjoyed every minute. The wait for the next book will be excruciating.
out of control! by Gildardo (Posted on 1/8/2017)
Every time I have gotten these I can't stop listening. And this one was so much better because it is a full 10 none stop hours of action and character movement. The sound design for this one is out of the park, and so is the awesome music. It has such a strong cast of actors behind it that it truly comes to life. If for some reason the previous two have not enrolled you you won't want to miss this one as the plot takes sudden breath taking twists that will leave you wishing for the next book to be available in graphic audio yesterday.
