Narrated by Mikael Naramore
Run time: 8 hrs and 47 mins
Gant Maker and his small company of misfits set out to find the dreaded Vacra.
- I enjoyed the story, but it’s more about the characters than the plot. My favorite parts were near the beginning when it turned more into a heist book than a quest to hunt down the bad guys.
- Not sure how they get fuel in this universe. They seem to be doing an awful lot of traveling.
- The romance angle seemed tacked on for the sake of having one.
- The series is compelling because it’s got a likable character in Maker. Sort of the military man who’s misunderstood but still loyal. He’s a bit like Reacher in attitude and action.
- The world-building’s cool too. Erlen especially is a fun addition to the crew. Revered, misunderstood alien who’s part chemical factory and part puppy dog at heart.
- Performance was fine. Naramore’s not my favorite narrator, but he’s got talent and puts a lot into his performances.
If you’re looking for excellent scifi, check out the Fringe World series. You can read this without having consumed the first, but as with most series, it will be better in order.
