    In the Uplands, people have magical and fearsome gifts. Orrec, a boy growing into his powers, can destroy any living thing with simply a glance. But he refuses to use his ability, and wears a blindfold to protect others from his devastating gaze.

    Ken says: "Book 3 won the 2008 Nebula Award"
    "great story, simple, moving, original"
    Overall

    Ursula LeGuin grown yet more masterful with age, spinning a dark tale with tragic depth lit by a young heart.

    In Saturn's Children, Freya is an obsolete android concubine in a society where humans haven't existed for hundreds of years. A rigid caste system keeps the Aristos, a vindictive group of humanoids, well in control of the lower, slave-chipped classes. So when Freya offends one particularly nasty Aristo, she's forced to take a dangerous courier job off-planet.

    G. House Sr. says: "Pleasent, Complicated Space Opera - Very Enjoyable"
    "imaginative erotic sci fi, outstanding narration"

    Story

    A spy novel written in noir style from the perspective of the interior monologue of a grumpy female sexbot after the mysterious extinction of humanity. The narration is brilliantly performed, and quite sexy and hilarious in certain parts.

    It is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising faces, some familiar, others only just appearing, are seen emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges ahead.

    Aaron says: "No Roy Dotrice"
    "worthwhile despite disappointing narration"
    Overall

    After listening to all four, I agree with other commenters that this book needs to be re-done by Roy Dotrice. This series is one of the greats, and deserves the best. I would buy it a second time just to get his narration.

    I hope John Lee doesn't get a complex because of all the negative reviews here. John Lee's narration is disappointing because it is merely good; Roy Dotrice had us spoilt with his consistently excellent character acting.
