Yes by far and even better then the text to speech version
I read all 9 books in the series and then listen to all 9 books with my son using text to speech. We both love this series... My son saw that this book had a special whispersync price of $2.99 since we already had the kindle version and bought the audible version. He told me that the audible version was a 100 times better than the text to speech version. These books are too short to waste our credits, too expensive to buy so we are hoping to get them during an audible special.
Yes, definitely. I am already reading the next in the series.
The Slaver War series is similiar and also very exciting.
A method of incorporating a few illustrations showing the ship and it's layout would help in visualizing what the author is verbalizing would be helpful.
The narration is excellent.
continuing story. still feel the first couple of books could have easily been combined 1&2, 3&4 would have kept pace better. still good enough to continue to see what happens next.
Only complaint is the plot twist we could all see from miles away :) The various characters are what drew me into this story and its what continues to keep me interested. They have all grown up in a very short time. I cant wait for the next book as it seems to me that will be even more interesting to see how they handle coming home and what they find and the reaction to what they have done.
Audio book lover with sci-fi leanings
This book stands on it's own well and is a necessary building block to a final showdown with the baddies in the series. Be prepared to pick up the next in the series to see this final showdown in action. If you've gotten this far in the series, you know you're hooked anyways.
Nv Native American, 1 room school house, hi school of 30, Raised 4-2& 2 ala Brady Bnch, lv audio books, home bound widow. M happy. Thnx AB.
In Rise of the Corinari my deductive skills were a sad 50-50. I knew that the Aurora was being used by two people. Each one meeting the Cap-
Tain in unrelated circumstances and each one anxious to roll the crew to their proposals. That's the part I was right about. After that, I was not even close to who was a white hat and who wore the black ones. I spent a good deal of my listen hollering at my IPad , "You're kidding!!"
Of course I was blindsided by two of the best to create an audio book ,
Brown and Kafer. One writes the magic and the other reads the magic,
proving they're word wizards of the 1st Order! If you play the" I've got it figured out" game with your listens, this whole series, to date, has been the best! Try it!
Still had me wanting to spend a credit on the next book to see what happens but at the beginning there is a 10 min story line on training a guy to fly a fake spaceship and the supposed real world physics. This coming from a series that has FTL and jump drives but they can't figure out that it might be a good idea to add seat restraints on the Aurora so people don't fall out of the chairs or hit their heads in a console during a battle
No but that might be because I have OCD and I want to see if this "Captain" gets back to earth and gets a court martial
the voices are all the same except for the russian
This series is captivating. the story drags you in. Brilliantly written. Narration is easy to listen to. I look forward to the next book
