    In the wake of apparent self-destruction of the Forerunner empire, two humans - Chakas and Riser - are like flotsam washed up on very strange shores indeed. Captured by the Master Builder, misplaced during a furious battle in space, they now find themselves on an inverted world where horizons rise into the sky, and where humans of all kinds are trapped in a perilous cycle of horror and neglect. For they have become both research animals and strategic pawns in a cosmic game whose madness knows no end....

    Story
    Would you try another book from Greg Bear and/or Timothy Dadabo?

    I'm quite the fan of Greg Bare, having been introduced to him through his Star Wars novel Rogue Planet. I wasn't initially impressed with Timothy Dadabo's narration, but he grew on me over time and did fit the book well.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Halo: Primordium?

    Without giving anything away, the ending is a real shocker and a cliffhanger as well.


    Which character – as performed by Timothy Dadabo – was your favorite?

    343 Guilty Spark


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    At first, I wasn't sure how to feel about the book. This is one of those books that you can't judge until you've read the entire story. Unlike his first book in this series, Cryptum, the story doesn't make much sense until you reach the end and it all clicks into place.


    Any additional comments?

    In chapter 34, there are a lot of audio artifacts. I recognize them specifically as jitter from an improperly ripped cd. I've reported this to Audible and, according to them, they are not the ones who convert the discs but get the content directly from audiobook publishers. That being the case, I have to wonder why the publishers are giving Audible rips of their own discs rather than providing digital masters. I will be pursuing this with McMillan Audio, as I'm intrigued as to why Audible was provided with a bad rip when a rip is not even necessary. Audible themselves were understanding about the issue, and it's not their fault.
