    Ten years have passed on Tines World, where Ravna Bergnsdot and a number of human children ended up after a disaster that nearly obliterated humankind throughout the galaxy. Ravna and the pack animals for which the planet is named have survived a war, and Ravna has saved more than one hundred children who were in cold-sleep aboard the vessel that brought them. While there is peace among the Tines, there are those among them - and among the humans - who seek power. And no matter the cost, these malcontents are determined to overturn the fledgling civilization....

    Where does The Children of the Sky rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was my first audiobook and I absolutely loved it. I've tried another couple since, but this one is by far the best.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Flenser and Ritl... Flenser's up to something but it's hard to tell exactly what. Ritl is just a magical singleton.


    What does Oliver Wyman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His characterisation of the character's voices, especially the female characters and the Tines, brings an extra level to the drama that you may miss when reading the words on the page. Especially in the case of Tycoon, who (ominously) uses a little kidnapped girl's voice during the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The chapter with Belle putting Timor to bed, then falling foul of kidnappers, left me feeling sad for both characters. Pilgrim's always good for a laugh too :D


    Any additional comments?

    Recommended, especially if you've already read the book and can spend the time enjoying Wyman's performance.
