    When Earth herself lay under siege by an enemy humankind could not defeat, mankind undertook one last throw of the dice: Operation Ark. Earth's final colonizing expedition was meant to build a new civilization, on a planet so distant even the Gbaba might never find it, and without the high-tech infrastructure whose emissions might betray its location.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Off Armageddon Reef to be better than the print version?

    Having read the story in ebook version prior to listening via audiobook, I consider both mediums to fit the story well.


    What does Oliver Wyman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Wyman does a great performance, integrating pacing as well as voice accents that bring the characters to life. One drawback was Wyman's unfortunate pronunciation of Nimue's name, as Ni-MOO instead of NIM-oo-ay, as in the mythical character associated with Merlin. The pronunciation stuck out immensely, however Wyman's performance overall was very good.

    The world has changed. The mercantile kingdom of Charis has prevailed over the alliance designed to exterminate it. Armed with a multitude of small technological improvements - better sailing vessels, better guns, better devices of all sorts - Charis faced the combined navies of the rest of the world at Darcos Sound and Armageddon Reef, and broke them.

    What didn’t you like about Oliver Wyman’s performance?

    The orator really had a problem making the story come to life; at times, I felt he was reading me a bedtime story, lulling me to sleep. Additionally, the orator has very specific and jarring pronunciation of the lead character's name I almost didn't finish.
