A captain coming into his own. A handful of refugees stranded on board. A possible traitor in their midst. A voyage into the territory of the very enemy that pursues them. Sometimes legends become realities in unexpected ways. It seems that fate has the crew of the Aurora firmly in its clutches.

This books should either be 2 for the price of one or 2 books should be combined into one.
This story is getting more interesting as it develops. However my complaint, like other reviewers, is that it's a bit of a rip-off that books 2 and 3 are short. these two should be combined. Books 2 & 3 are mostly character development and the first use of the jump drive in a tactical sense so that's an improvement.
Story continues on from the first two "so called" books. I would rather call these books "Parts" 1 2 and 3 of one book. Sad to say they are not Worth the expenditure of a credit each or the cash of purchase seeing as they are so curtailed as to be rediculous.
I took off one star for book 3 because was cut off too short for my payment for one full book.
Kafer did well with all characters.
"The Legend of Corinair" as a stand alone book is not enough for a movie or a TV series.
Come on - not enough hours for buying a book.
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.
Book number 3 and it keeps on getting better and better! The battles and confrontations are still plentiful and realistic, not damned and blood lettings that interrupt the flow of the book. The characters are diverse and each contribute to the book. The 'good guys' all have a sense of humor and it livens the book up for the enjoyment of the listener. Kafer does his usual job: Excellent! Thank the gods of audio, he's not a screamer or whisperer so you're not listening with finger planted on volume control! I recommend The Legend of Corinair to all that like a lively book !
continues the story and keeps a decent pace. still think maybe the first few books could have been combined for a smoother story and be more in line with subsequent books for length and depth.
I withheld one star because the first three volumes should really be only one. The publisher's decision to break each major 8-hr episode into separate volumes seems to be a common revenue generation scheme. This is frustrating to the reader/listener.
Neither the science nor the military action is strong, the characters are interesting. Again, a little more character development would be good.
Having said all that, I find myself addicted and keep downloading the next installment as I approach the conclusion of the last.
One of the things I appreciate the most is the absence, so far at least, of overly obnoxious contra-characters and frustrating politicians. However, Cameron seems to be a constant irritant who cannot be assuaged. I hope that the final events of this 3rd episode correct her unrealistically implacable role. However, I worry that as with Joseph Campbell, Orson Scott Card and too many other male writers, she will continue to be the bitter ally/enemy or male hero-worshipper that seem to speak to the author's prejudice that delimits the roles of strong women.
Leg of Cor is a great read. Unlike Rings of Haven which was dull and desperate, LoC takes you back to what Aurora was all about: excitement, friendship, and legends. Nathan Scott makes you want to root for him, and every member of his crew that he loses you feel the pain with him. But Ryk doesn't just make you love Nathan and the crew, he makes you respect them as well. This series is starting to come into a realm of its own. It's no longer a Star Trek copy and is quickly becoming it's own tale.
about the same as it is from the same series
someone that can alter the voices of the different characters
wait till it comes on netflix
I went and spent a credit on the next book so it kept me interested but it does have a few things that annoy me. Like they have FTL and can jump thousands of light years in a blink yet the ground crew still needs to plug their headset into the shuttle to talk to the pilots?
