Audible Editor Reviews

James Patrick Cronin’s vibrant and dynamic performance catapults the listener to the far-flung galaxies of this first volume of Sherwood Smith and Dave Trowbridge’s sprawling, five-part intergalactic space saga, which finds our devil-may-care hero Krysarch Brandon nyr-Arkad, the youngest son of Emperor Gelsaar, pitted against the nefarious Jerrode Eusabian, who’s hell-bent on exacting revenge against The Thousand Suns.

Whether capturing the nuances of the Dol’jharian dialect or the violent tendencies of volatile space orcs, Cronin’s superb delivery elevates this exhilarating blend of hard sci-fi and fantasy.

Publisher's Summary

Smith and Trowbridge describe the flavor of their five-book space opera Exordium as a cross between Star Wars and Dangerous Liaisons with a touch of the Three Stooges. With its fast-moving blend of humor and horror, of high-tech skiffy and the deep places of the human heart, The Phoenix in Flight launches the reader into a complex, multi-layered universe as Brandon nyr-Arkad, dissolute youngest son of the ruler of the Thousand Suns, abandons the life of service planned for him and flees into the lawless Rift.

Only slowly does he discover that the world he rejected now lies in smoking ruins as the ritual vengeance of Jerrode Eusabian against Brandon’s father, twenty years in preparation, culminates in an explosion of interstellar violence. With both his brothers dead and his father the Panarch imprisoned, Brandon becomes the Panarchy's last hope.
