Publisher's Summary

A Little Rebellion

Crimson Worlds Book III

The Third Frontier War is over, and the Western Alliance is triumphant. All across human-occupied space, colony worlds celebrate the coming of peace.

But peace is an elusive dream, and more trouble is brewing. The war was expensive, and the economies of the Superpowers, always fragile, are on the verge of total collapse.

The Directorate, the shadowy intelligence organization that has become the true power behind the Alliance government, plans to strip the colonies bare to pay the costs of war. Already, they are tightening their control over the freewheeling colonial governments. And the Marine Corps faces total destruction at the hands of the worst traitor in its history.

But the colonists are a different breed than the passive mob on Earth, and they have no intention of meekly surrendering their hard-won freedoms. On worlds all across the frontier, plans are hatched and weapons hoarded. And in taverns and meeting halls the words of an ancient text are uttered in hushed tones. A little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing.

    "Bad narration and production"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The story is largely worth having to endure the bad narration and production


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator frequently "acts" female characters by adopting not just a fake and high pitched voice, but one with a simpering quality that is heavily suggestive of misogyny. The narrator also does not know how to pronounce a noticeable number of words in the text. To be fair to the narrator, I think some of the worst mistakes were probably on the part of his director. I suspect the director required the ridiculous voices, given that he made the grave but all to common mistake of using sound effects like using heavy reverb to signal that a voice is from a computer and so forth. Director, I hope you somehow read this: please refrain from sound effects! If your narrator is good they will be able to develop subtle but distinguishable voices for the characters without needing recourse to sound effects which almost always distinguish second rate productions. Using reverb effects is such a big mistake that I have read entire essays on the subject. Total breakage of suspension of disbelief. If you want to know how this is done right, please listen to a bit of anything narrated by John Lee. He is able to perform large numbers of characters with complicated relationships without ever resorting to unnatural sounding voices.


    Any additional comments?

    Please, all you directors and producers out there: Please don't use sound effects like reverb. It just looks like you are compensating for incompetence.

    "Great Series So Far"

    So far this series is very good, the characters are developed satisfactorily, a little cliche but it works because the dialogue is great between characters. In terms of Sci-Fi there is ground based military, space combat, ship to ship combat, 'future talk', & funny talk about history. I def. would suggest this 3rd book & think its getting better as the series went on... 3rd better then 2nd then 1st etc...

    The alien presence is interesting but I don't think its enough considering how everything in the books focuses on a disinformation campaign to further the artifact goals... there are also some unique battles & forms of battle, bringing the saying 'improvise, adapt, & overcome' come true to form. Only complaint is I think the book could have been a couple hours less... overall I'll keep reading Allan. The narration & story came together for a well put together book
