Twelve thousand years in the future, on a planet far, far away, a country boy named Tulzik Ambroz tracks the man who killed his sister Vika, following him across the poisonous crater that is all that remains of the planet's starport, into the great city of Ragbaan. Ragbaan - site of the planet's original settlement, heart of a civilization that has repeatedly risen to astonishing heights of power and technological prowess, only to fall, every time, back into barbarism. How can Tulzik find his quarry in an anarchic city of three million souls, where the technology of the ancients is considered magic?

I love Lawrence Watt Evans writing abilities! This story was as exciting as watching a new movie in the theatre and it kept me captivated with slight humor and action along with unique character sets and an engaging storyline!
I felt that this story came alive as I listened and I was compelled to keep listening! The narrator, Paul Licameli was extremely connected to the story and helped to distinguish the characters well so I could follow who was speaking. His approach to the humor and the angst of the protagonist was spot on! The author's great story was complimented perfectly with the narration!
The narration, the characters, the fabulous imaginative world. as the story went on it got better and better.
Everything! I thought at first how can this story be different from the zillion other revenge based story lines, well, its totally unique all the way through.
Every scene with the crested creature in it. The description of what it looked like, its mysterious ways, and the narrators interpretation of its voice made every scene with it totally
It was pure fun!! I enjoyed every minute of it. It kept me wanting more as it kept building and changing with new characters.
The story was exciting and suspenseful. The world was wonderfully imaginative. Character development was very well done. I truly enjoyed following this adventure. It's Scifi and high fantasy rolled into one!
The narration was fabulous!!! I loved the voice of the crested creature!! It was so cool.
All the characters voices were done well and easy to tell apart.
I am glad I had the pleasure of giving this story a listen via a promotion.
I recommend this one 100% :)
The world that the author builds is fascinating. Just the right amount of detail is given to leave the rest to the listener's imagination in a way that is very enjoyable.
I have not
Both the story and the narrator were fantastic. I highly recommend.
Vika's Avenger is a fascinating, well thought out civilization on Tulzik's quest for revenge. The how and why of his sister's death and the question of culpability leave the reader guessing up to the very end. The narrator gave life to the different characters.
