    High above the planet Harmony, the Oversoul watches. Its task, programmed so many millennia ago, is to guard the human settlement on this planet, to protect this fragile remnant of Earth from all threats...to protect them, most of all, from themselves.

    Harry says: "Entertaining approach to SciFi"
    "An engaging story"
    Overall

    The story is an easy listen. The author does a good job in developing the characters and engaging the listener in the story. This book compares very favorably with other stories by Mr Card where he develops a believable society, and then spins a story with depth. Once the story is completely told, it may deserve five stars.

    Story

    An adventure story primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy, and forgiveness, it focuses on a man who is wrongfully imprisoned, escapes from jail, acquires a fortune and sets about getting revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment. However, his plans have devastating consequences for the innocent as well as the guilty.

    Niclas says: "Great story, awful narrator."

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator had unnatural pauses and a cadence which was totally distracting. Perhaps that is why this version was only about two dollars.
