    Pell's Station, orbiting the alien world simply called Downbelow, had always managed to remain neutral in the ever escalating conflict between The Company, whose fleets from Earth had colonized space, and its increasingly independent and rebellious colony worlds. But Pell's location - - on the outer edge of Earth's defensive perimeter - makes her the focal point in the titanic battle of colony worlds fighting for independence.

    Story

    Arrrggg!! I am so tired of male narrators reading women voices in a nasally whine! This audiobook is by far the worst in this regard, and it utterlly ruins a great story for me. The female military ship captain sounds like a nasally, whiny, high school vally girl. No kidding. It is terrible. I litterally gasped out loud in dismay and irritation when I first heard this presentation of a strong, powerful female lead! I have read and loved this book. The story is a good one, one of C.J. Cherryh's best in my opinion. If you like C.J. Cherryh, complex socialiology, complex characters, or good political sci-fi stories in general, you'll like this story. However, perhaps you should listen to a sample if available, to get a feel for the narration. I was excited to see some C.J. Cherryh books added to the audio offerings on AUdible, as she is my favorite author. But, I would have thought twice given the narration.
