    When the spacecraft Discipline reached the double-star system of T3 and LeVoy's Star, its crew discovered that an immense doughnut-shaped gaseous envelope had formed around a neutron star. Though it had very little usable land, the Smoke Ring had evolved a variety of life forms, most of which were edible and all of which could fly.

    The dimensions are in chaos, magic is illegal, and water is a rare commodity. Kyrin is running from the law. As a magic user, she's marked for death, and as a run-away from the Shadowmere, she's hunted as a weapon. Shifting between dimensions is all that's kept her alive. On the brink of being caught by the Shadowmere, Kyrin stumbles into a dimension devoid of the drought and seemingly untouched by the wrath of the Consortiums.

    What disappointed you about Dimension Shifter?

    I've read the books, enjoyed them. Saw this audio book and bought it, the story of course is the same, but from all the audiobooks I've listened to this one was the worse read book I've yet to hear, it sounder like a 10 old was reading the book, there was very little emotion and the syntax was horrible, T.M should consider a different person to narrate any other of his books.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A totally different narrator. Sorry Tood.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't get me wrong here I totally enjoyed both books (when I read them) and have read all of the Heku books, I'm actually waiting to have them on audible, so nothing against the author, love his writing, just needs a better narrator.

    The extermination of Earth is at hand. With his increasingly irrational leadership Basil Wenceslas, chairman of the Hansa, has driven humanity into a corner. His punitive treatment of the Hansa colonies and the Roamers, as well as his refusal to aid an embattled Theroc, have made enemies for the people of Earth.
