    The Star Kingdom's ally Erewhon is growing increasingly restive in the alliance because the new High Ridge regime ignores its needs. Add to that the longstanding problem of a slave labor planet controlled by hostile Mesans in Erewhon's stellar back yard, a problem which High Ridge also ignores.

    Where does Crown of Slaves rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Somewhere in the middle this is good old entertainment not an epic story but a good read.


    What other book might you compare Crown of Slaves to and why?

    This is another in a long line of Weber books if you have not read all are at least some you will be missing a lot in the story although it is a stand alone book.


    Have you listened to any of Peter Larkin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have never listened to Peter Larkin"s performances before but his is a very can make it come alive..


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    not realy just a good read.


    Any additional comments?

    As always I will stop and buy a new David Weber book any time I see a new one.

    John Rain is back. And “the most charismatic assassin since James Bond” (San Francisco Chronicle) is up against his most formidable enemy yet: the nexus of political, military, media, and corporate factions known only as the Oligarchy. When legendary black ops veteran Colonel Scott “Hort” Horton tracks Rain down in Tokyo, Rain can’t resist the offer: a multi-million dollar payday for the “natural causes” demise of three ultra-high-profile targets who are dangerously close to launching a coup in America. But the opposition on this job is going to be too much for even Rain to pull it off alone.

    Survivors is the all-new soul-shattering climax to the postapocalyptic trilogy, featuring a deadly virus, military action, global devastation - and zombies. A lot can change in three months: Wars can be decided, nations can be forged...or entire species can be brought to the brink of annihilation. The Morningstar Virus, an incredibly virulent disease, has swept the face of the planet, infecting billions. The infected hosts rampage, attacking anything that remains uninfected.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Survivors to be better than the print version?

    I have never read the printed version but I have now read all three of the Morningstar audible books and they were great. The characters came to life and there was sad times, and glad times and times I wanted to go in the book and whoop some butt myself, ..... all in all I would do it again. I highly recommend this book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes and i did, thanks to a long trip i was on, I drove 500 miles down to Laredo Texas and 500 miles back this gave me lots of time to listen to all three books with a little time in a hotel with nothing but time on my hands every evening.
