    Story

    Tom Dreyfus is a Prefect, a law enforcement officer with the Panoply. His beat is the multifaceted utopian society of the Glitter Band, that vast swirl of space habitats orbiting the planet Yellowstone, the teeming hub of a human interstellar empire spanning many worlds. His current case: investigating a murderous attack against one of the habitats that left 900 people dead, a crime that appalls even a hardened cop like Dreyfus.

    Michael G. Kurilla says: "Best yet of the Revelation Space series"
    "Cool Sci Fi, but with a hidden horror element"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Prefect to be better than the print version?

    Yes. Just listening to some of the dialogues spoken make WAY more impact than if you just read them.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Clepsydra - she is an enigmatic person. Very much like the Oracle from the Matrix movies, but with an action element.


    What about John Lee’s performance did you like?

    He had a good voice, and different characters were well portrayed in different voices.


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

    No. This is a book, I wanted to take some breaks with. This novel does have horror elements to it, but very subtly portrayed. It was exhaustingly detailed - but well put together.


    Any additional comments?

    This novel has a lot of harsh events, which are subtly mentioned in passing. 2, 3 or a few one can stomach. But, almost all scenes have people dying or talk of people dying or dead people in them! I didn't notice until half way through the novel, why I was feeling sick in the stomach listening to this novel. In the end, I figured out it was all the bleak events - kids dying, people being experimented upon, innocent people being starved, innocent victims, killing of people in who've suffered enough already, mass murder, mass destruction, mass murderers going on loose and collateral damage. AND, this is just the tip of it!

    Be warned if you are someone who gets affected by the novels you are listening to. The only positive is that all these horrors are well blended, and not graphic. So, it's not easy to pick it out.
