Due to popular demand, the Vitalis Omnibus edition covers the first seven Vitalis stories!
Mysterious blackouts left Kira with precious few memories of events in her life, never mind those worth sharing. Somewhere in those blank spots she acquired skills - skills she was hard pressed to explain. But those skills got her a job as the new navigator for the Rented Mule, a transport ship that plied the Rim Systems at the very edge of human civilization.
When their ship is set upon by pirates Kira's skills allow her and the crew to escape, only to find themselves stranded in deep space with only one chance for survival, an undiscovered planet teeming with life that is light years beyond the borders of the Terran Coalition of Systems.
Forced to crash land, the crew of the Rented Mule learns immediately that the key to surviving on Vitalis is a closely guarded secret. Vitalis has a way of getting inside the mind, body, and soul of a person and once it's got them, it doesn't let them go.

didnt read the print.
author very creative and lots of suspense. great story.
Good reading and excellent range of character voices.
a bit of both.
read another review that said reader was bad. Wow! hard to believe we heard same book. Moral or story..listen to the sample and judge for yourself before you buy.
If you like sci-fi, you will like this.
The planet itself...kind of alive in a strange sort of way.
I have. I like his style. Good voices without going over the top.
A lot of them, really, since this is actually a collection of several books.
Try it, you'll like it.
I might try Halstead again, but Killavey is atrocious.
I really tried to get past the naration, and the story has potential. But I could only handle a few chapters before giving up.
No sense of punctuation/pauses, really odd inflections. Also, no real change in voice for different characters.
Anger that I wasted a credit on this.
Primarily the choice of James Killavey to narrate. It was so bad I don't think I can finish listening.
The story itself wasn't so bad, what I could bare to listen to. I might try him with either another narrator or text only.
It honestly sounded like a computerised voice. Completely monotone, no emotion, no difference between characters (besides a slightly higher pitch for female characters), taking breaths in the wrong place and the sound of the licking of lips made it pretty much impossible to listen to. It's like a brick wall preventing you from getting in to the story.
