Start at the 2nd ship and then progress to end. It's REALLY worth the money. The story is very original, complex, and well thought out. The author creates situations that should only be presented to adults, without sinking into un-necessary details (one doesn't have to smell the excrement to know that it stinks). Why don't other authors do that?
I'll definitely look for other titles by this author.
Also, the Narrator does a great job. I hope the publisher doesn't do something stupid like using a different narrator to save money.
This book appears to be misplaced in the SciFi genre category; it is very different from Books 1 & 2. I didn't like it, but I generally stay away from Fantasy books.
The problem is not the narration as some have claimed. William Dufris is one of the best narrators as is Scott Brick. The problem is the thin story that only appears to function as the basis for the characters to travel the globe. Some times I almost imagined I was listening to one of Bill Bryon's books except with more killing and explosions. I don't think it is a bad travel book and there is a lot of good geographical information. But, I think I'll pass on the other Quinn books.
Writing is good and narration is great, but maybe not for those (like me) who aren't into the magical genre. My first impression is to rate it lower, but that is difficult to do honestly. I believe I had the same problem with Book1. So the real problem is likely the genre (it's not really Sci-Fi) and likely should be in the fantasy section.
I don't know how he does it, but this one delivered more content than the 1st. Very complex, very grown-up set of relationships are being established.
Jimmy.... (I don't want to give anything away), but keep your eyes on Jimmy.
The aliens are merely part of the landscape. All three books are a study of "Human Nature". And the author does a good job of keeping it interesting. It's the kind of story that you could sit through with your girlfriend.
Great new alien species patterned after motile discreet biological systems protecting a collective of systems.
I think it would be successful as an HBO series (i.e.; Game of Thrones).
While I'm certain that the book is "well prepared", I don't feel I'm qualified to be a loyal listener.
Dina Pearlman was a perfect choice for this sort of book.
It's the kind of stuff that's well received by younger audiences; but I kept losing interest. It's the first EX(somthin) book I've ever bought and I don't expect that I'll buy another. It's not a bad book...just not for me.
There's a lot about romance and hurt feelings and good women and no-good men. I did listen to all of it and it wasn't that bad.
I'm very happy I bought this book. Shows good people doing well in difficult life situations where there is no slathering enemy, only adult realities.
The series isn't really about an interstellar war with aliens. It's about grown-up human relationships while dealing with life and death situations.
