Publisher's Summary

One man in the Universe holds the key to the mystery of Flinx's past - and that man is trying to kill him!

It is a strange childhood for a kid, to be adopted by the restless Mother Mastiff and raised in the bustling marketplace of Drallar. Flinx never knew the mom and dad who abandoned him years ago. In fact, his birth has always been shrouded in mystery. But Flinx eventually discovers that his unknown parents have left him a curious legacy - extraordinary mental powers that are both a marvelous gift and a dreaded curse.

This double-edged legacy will lead Flinx, along with his loyal protector, the mini-dragon Pip, on a harrowing journey in search of the truth . . . about who he is and where he comes from. It is a daring adventure that brings him to another world - and into the clutches of one of the most evil and powerful men in the galaxy. . . .

    "2nd Novel: Flinx's Search for himself"

    Flinx continues to try to find his parentage and saves the Commonwealth in the process. This is a fast paced romp that will keep you listening even when you should to do something else. Much of Flinx's past is revealed in this the third chronologically of the series second book written. Great Listen!

    "Flinx - yes, audio- so so"
    What made the experience of listening to Orphan Star the most enjoyable?

    I loved the story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Flinx & Pip of course


    Did Stefan Rudnicki do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    yes. But there needed to be a pause when he changed from the main characters to a secondary story-line. Always confusing thinking that the story of the main characters was continuing but discovering 1/2 way thru that it was a different set of characters - confusing and irritating.


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

    no


    Any additional comments?

    see "Did Stefan Rudnicki do a good job...."
