Revenge is only justice when it can be administered without hatred.
Welcome to the Tora star system, home of the spectacular Cardinal-4 space station overlooking Amulen and Banor, twin worlds that share the same orbit. One visit and you'll understand why this station is the pinnacle of Torian achievement and a wonder of the Erobian Sphere.
Unfortunately, your timing isn't great. Many centuries of peace and prosperity are on the verge of collapsing for members of the Erob coalition as signs of the first interstellar wars loom. The half-breeds tell us it is because we are now forsaking the ancient law, and have thus allowed an evil infection to begin spreading through the galaxy. But those Erob half-breeds have always been a little over-dramatic, haven't they?
Brandon Foss, an unhappily married Virginian in his early 30s, awakes from a strange dream to discover he has been abducted from Earth and kept in cryonic preservation on Amulen for two decades. One other resuscitated human is with him, a real knucklehead who almost seems as alien to Brandon as their reptilian captors. A friendship of convenience forms as the two Earthlings soon become unwittingly intertwined in Torian politics and military affairs - at a time, it turns out, when the Torians desperately need just such intertwining.

The fact that it's now in audio. I actually downloaded the Kindle version a few days ago but simply have not had the time to get very far. Was delighted to see it in audio. If anything it's even better than the text version. There are a few "typos" in the text version which have been fixed in the audio and the reader does an excellent job of bring the story to life. My only complaint...Just checked and the other two books in the series are not yet in audiobook form yet. Hoping that will change soon. Already know I want all three.
Not books but has elements of both Star Wars and Star Trek while, at the same time creating a whole marvelous world of its own. Great story, marvelous characters. Been a long time since I read a sci-fi story this good.
I have. He's one of my favorite narrators. Does good character voices without going "over the top."
Original title sounds fine to me.
Just got this, early this morning before going to work, and between commuting, exercise and other "no-brainier" tasks, I'm already half way done.
action-packed, thought-provoking, fascinating
There were a lot of them. Two that stand out are the two humans gradually figuring out what had happened to them and the suspense filled space battle.
He did a great job with the character voices.
Yes but...much too long.
This is one of those books where I found myself driving the long way home or sometimes around the block a few times just so I could keep listening. It is both an incredibly entertaining story and a thought provoking one dealing with intergalactic intrigue, alien abductions, Star wars type battles and suspense etc. etc. Can't say a lot more without giving plot elements away. Suffice it to say it's a wonderful sci-fi story. I hope the other two books in the trilogy will be out soon. With my hectic schedule I seldom have time to sit down and read so audio books are the way to go for me. Very pleased with this one.
Great plot, whole new and very believable universe. Good guys, both human and alien and lots of shades of bad guys. Found myself really caring about the characters..even the alien ones.
Mip-7, one of the aliens. Lizard-like creature with lots of depth to him. Amazing!
I thought he did a very good job. Gave characters different voices without getting cartoonish.
Hope they use him for the rest of the series.
A bit too long for that but I did finish it in just a few days during my daily commute to and from work.
Really disappointed to find the second and third books in the series are not in audio yet.There's no way I have time to sit down and read them, much as I would like to. I guess I'll just have to wait for them to become audio books...hopefully soon.
I guess...didn't read the print. This version was very good, though.
The two humans.
Excellent job with the many voices.
No, too long
Very enjoyable listening experience. I will be looking for more from this author and this narrator.
Just a very good story. Author created a whole new world..Universe, actually, and it drew me right in.
Mip7 - and alien "good guy"
Big Space Battle towards the end. Reminded me of Death Star battle in Star Wars.
The death of Joe and Brandon's reaction too it. Very realistic.
Good scifi story and very well read. Five stars all around.
I enjoyed this story very much, it seemed different from most of the sci-fi I have read, and I am a sci-fi fan. The narrator was able to do many different voices, making it easy to discern which character was speaking. I am looking forward to "reading" the next installment.
To any who are sci-fi fans, this has it all.
Dereck....60's hippie transported to a galaxy far away!
Title of book sounds fine.
Excellent story and very well read. Can't wait for the next one and I hope they use the same narrator.
Yes if they like sci fi
Mip 7 - likable alien.
Did a good job with many voices.
Not really. Just a lot of fun.
Glad to see there ia a sequal.
Yup....and I intend to, just before getting the next one. Unfortunately, that's not available yet.
Stars Wars...actually not sure that ever made it into book form but that's the kind of incredibly detailed Universe that's created here.
Really brought it to life. This is the third book I've heard of his and he does not disappoint.
First time I heard him do "voices." ( The other two were non-fiction.) Was really pleased with his versitility
No ... too long. Made for a wonderful commute for about a week, though.
Why aren't the next two in the series in audio?
One of the best.
A little like Star Wars in some places.
Good reader and I thought he did a nice job with the many character voices.
Actually, there were a lot of them.
This story has elements of both Star Wars and Star Trek but still manages to be
highly original. It has good aliens and bad aliens who all have great depth of
character. And...two humans who were abducted years ago and end up fighting for
the good aliens. It even has holy men ( or, holy aliens, actually ) with the
gift of prophecy. Don't want to give away the plot line except to say it
was a terrific listen. Can't wait for Book 2 to come out in audio
