Earthrise: Her Instruments 1 | [M.C.A. Hogarth]

Earthrise: Her Instruments 1

Reese Eddings has enough to do just keeping her rattletrap merchant vessel, the TMS Earthrise, profitable enough to pay food for herself and her micro-crew. So when a mysterious benefactor from her past shows up demanding she rescue a man from slavers, her first reaction is to say "NO!" And then to remember that she sort of promised to repay the loan. But she doesn't remember signing up to tangle with pirates and slavers over a space elf prince…

    "One of the best stories I've listened to this year"
    Any additional comments?

    I'm a fan of many of Hogarth's books. While I enjoy reading them, I usually listen to them first. Her choices of voice actors makes listening to her books a delight. Daniel Dorse creates terrific voices, and uses them consistently. In addition, he understands her stories, and uses his narration to emphasize the points she is trying to make. Hogarth is excellent at describing different cultures through the relationships of characters in her books. While I may not always agree with her conclusions about culture and behavior, I always come away thinking more deeply about what she said. But she is not writing essays hidden in fiction. Her action and dialogue are wonderful, and the pacing of her stories draws you in. Highly recommended.

    "Good story"

    I enjoyed the mix of characters, but had a hard time with the Captain. I wanted to give her a 'chill pill'.
    Her complaints were voiced a little too frequently and she had too many emotional fits about the wrong things.
    I wanted her to be smarter because she was The Captain. She missed the whole pirate/trap angle which she should have caught.
    Otherwise, I did like the book and I will read the next one.

    Story
    "Firefly Fans will love this!"
    Would you listen to Earthrise again? Why?

    Finally a story that is fun, full of adventure, lots of crazy characters. Well, developed characters that win you over immediately and the way in which scenes are laid out makes us feel right at home with them all! Which is amazing seeing as how everything is happening in a futuristic other world of outer space. Haven't liked a new Sci-Fi story so much since Star Wars!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Earthrise?

    When the Eldridge discovered what the crystals really were.


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

    I believe he brought out the depths and descriptions is such a vivid manner as though he were a grandfather sharing stories from his own past to his family.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and no. Yes because i was enjoying where it took me and no because it was a two day long read .


    Any additional comments?

    I really got to know the characters well by the end and only wished that Reese wasn't so combative. I liked her better when she was calmer.
