Publisher's Summary

For 20 years Earth has been exploring the stars using faster-than-light stardrives in which a manmade black hole pulls the ship through space. Dangerous to themselves and everything in the vicinity, the24 starships, led by the flagship Horizon, have opened up new worlds to colonize.

Now mankind stands on the brink of a momentous breakthrough: Hyperidor drives; faster-than-light travel that is inexpensive, risk free, and available to all. All that stands in the way of vast exploration and colonization is a corporate behemoth that wants to see the hyperidor drive fail; no matter what the cost. It is left to the Horizon's Captain Pamela Carlson and Third Engineer Mahlon Stewart to decipher the means, motives and murders that threaten not only mankind's future in space but the Horizon and its crew as well.

    "Not so good"

    I tried to like it. The plot sounded excellent but the narrator was very boring and monotone. The characters were very flat and I never really cared for any of them. I hate to give a bad review but this story needs some work. The narrator even made a mistake, swore, then cleared his throat and it was not edited out. I really think the narrator killed the story. I'll have to get the book and read it for myself. The premise sounds like solid sci-fi and is worth a second shot. I will give this author another chance, but I did waste time and a credit on this one.

    "Ruined by the Narrator"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I wanted to like this book. But I just can not sit through the dry, single voice, monotone narration. I'd love to have this with a different narrator so perhaps I could get past the first 4 chapters. Choosing this narrator was a disservice to the author.


    Would you recommend Horizons to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. Terrible narration.


    What didn’t you like about Mark Douglas Nelson’s performance?

    Flat, monotone, lacking ANY connection to the characters or the action in the story. This man sounds like he is board and wanting to be somewhere else and the feeling soon rubs off on the listener.


    Did Horizons inspire you to do anything?

    Listen to something else


    Any additional comments?

    No more of this narrator please.
