An empty apartment, a missing family, that's creepy. But this is like finding a military base with no one on it. Fighters and tanks idling on the runway with no drivers. This is bad juju. Something wrong happened here. What you should do is tell everyone to leave. The gates have opened the way to a thousand new worlds, and the rush to colonize has begun. Settlers looking for a new life stream out from humanity's home planets. Ilus, the first human colony on this vast new frontier, is being born in blood and fire.

How could the performance have been better?

So glad this was re-done by Jefferson Mays. Book 4 was easily my most hated of the series because of the narration change... I don't want to say the different narrator was bad, it just was...different... 3 books with one reader, you get used to the voices for each character, the pacing, the diction... it's damn disorienting when you have a new voice for the characters. It was so drastic that it feels like I can't actually judge the content of the book on its own merit. Excited to give this title another look with the voice I associate with the Expanse.

Jolene Moroney never expected to find herself in charge of a whiskey distillery. She also never expected to find herself looking down the barrel of a gun. The death of an uncle she didn't even know she had changed all that. Callum, an ex-assassin for the Scottish government, spent the last few years protecting Jolene's uncle. Now the chiseled bodyguard found himself on the run, going undercover to protect Jolene.

Any additional comments?

This was a charmingly straightforward book with a beautiful setting and interesting characters. The reader really made the book come to life with a great variety of lovely accents!
