I picked up this book based on the brilliant reviews. Unfortunately, I was somewhat disappointed by the series. While it is certainly not bad as such, it was not all that interesting either. I listened to Crystal Soldier and figuring, hey, with such good reviews, maybe it picks up in volume 2, I listened to that one as well. It was pretty much the same though, and I did not finish the series.
about top third
The story kept up. It has an interesting story line and I did not get bored listening to it.
The fight scene where the hero and heroine nearly get hammered!
An enjoyable story. I want to read the rest of the trilogy.
In made me a fan of Jella, the soldier that keep on-mission with-standing the condition of those that had lost hope in that war and felt it there duty to destroy, what hope that they were shown.
When contra was returning from her mission, to rescue the scholar, and her memory became like broken shards of glass, effecting her physical experience.
When the rescuer fell. Jumping out of the hatch of shuttle craft onto the dead sea bed.
A epic analogy of the worlds condition.
I'm a technician that does a lot of driving for his job. I use the "windshield" time to listen to audiobooks.
I think this book could have used a good editor to trim some of the unnecessary fill from this book. Some parts were needlessly over dramatic. It kind of drags. The interview at the end of the book where Miller (author) interviews Collins (narrator) was interesting. I'll not be listening to the rest of the books, I think I'd rather Wikipedia it instead.
