Publisher's Summary

My name is Lilith Mae Madison and I am captain of the Phoenix. There is something strange happening on my ship, something that cannot be explained.

On the other side of the known universe, we are waiting for a wormhole to open so we can return home with news that could save the human race, but someone, or something, has other ideas. My crew are being picked off one by one, and whoever is responsible is very, very strong, and very, very clever.

I'm struggling to hold onto my sanity while also maintaining control of my ship and crew. My trust is divided between John, my second in command and Maggie, head biogeneticist and my lover. John is impulsive and headstrong, and I am unsure of his full intentions. Maggie, on the other hand, is gentle, kind, loving and sweet, but I know she is withholding information from me...vital information!

With time and crew running dangerously low, I must find the killer before it's too late!

A real sci fi treat.

The only problem I had with this book, it left me wanting more. What a great space travel story. The narration was excellent. This would make an excellent series.

47 by Angela Peach

Although this is not my usual kind of read, I truly enjoyed this SciFi adventure. The characters were great and the narration by Megan Green was wonderful. I look forward to reading/ listening more books by Ms. Peach.

entertaining story

I enjoyed this somewhat surreal sci-fi murder mystery that takes place on a spaceship that is waiting for a wormhole to open so that the ship can return home. It’s an interesting mix of complicated relationships, space exploration, intrigue, romance and survival. The narrators British accent made for an interesting listen, though the recording did seem to cause her S’s to slur a little. This was an entertaining audiobook with a surprise twist at the end.

More a love story than a sci-fi adventure

47 is a provocative whodunit which takes place on the spaceship Phoenix, as the crew awaits the opening of a wormhole so they can return to their own solar system. This is more a love story, between Lilith (or Lily) and Maggie with John as a complication, that just happens to take place on a spaceship, than it is an actual sci-fi story. And speaking of complications, there are computer glitches and malfunctions throughout the ship which don't make sense and are hampering their ability to make their "connection". It's quite a wild ride.

That said, there's something desperately wrong with the audio production. It's echoey, like Ms. Green is reading from a dark cavern. It's also staticky, so her Ss are slurred. This was distracting and problematic. For example, it took me a good while to realize the character's name was John, not Tom, because the words were so muffled.

And while we're discussing the audio, in my opinion, the narrator would be much better suited to portray a gossipy character in a chick-lit novel. Her manner and accent are much too casual to play a military commander of a spaceship, though she did a decent job.

pretty good

If you like pure sci-fi then you really must listen to this. This book was masterfully executed. I did find some of the phrases and wordings to be a tad foreign (I am an American) but they did not detract from the novel at all. The main character is one of the most interesting character I've read in a long while

Not my typical listen

What three words best describe Megan Green’s voice?

I like the fact that the narration was in a British accent. it always makes my listens 10 times better.

Any additional comments?

the writing style of the book was great. It was out of my normal genre so it made the listen a bit harder because im not used to the terminology of sci fi. but overall the writing was great and the plot well developed

A different genre for me but good read

I enjoyed the story line. This is my second sci fi genre that I have listened to. The narrator had a lovely voice . But I felt it needed more emotion in delivering the narration. Not saying in any way that is wasn't good. Every one perceives things differently , including audio.

Interesting book

The story was good but not my usual type of book. I got lost a few times trying to figure out if present or past time. Lots of intrigue and suspense.

So many unexpected pieces!

Full of action and suspense. From beginning to end kept guessing all the way. Never certain exactly what is happening until those last few words.

An absolute hair-raiser! Very highly recommended!

Full disclosure: I volunteered to review this book when the narrator asked for people to review the book shortly after release. On the other hand I did definitely enjoy the book!

Angela Peach has come up with a very tense novel in 47. You never quite know where the plot is going to go. You initially think you might have some idea but very quickly she takes you on a number of twists and turns. She is also very good at making you understand the Captain's thought process right from the beginning all the way to the thrilling conclusion.

The only thing that confused me was one of the later 'private' scenes in the captain's bedroom as it didnt seem to flow in the heat of the moment although that is very much a minor niggle in a very good story.

She was also quite good at making the majority of characters at least likeable although there were one or two that aggravated me more than was most likely intended. The story may be short but it's very well worth your money, an absolute hair-raiser!

The narration is also good. It is fairly clear to indicate who is talking and an effort is definitely made to differentiate between the characters using different accents or tones of voice. The character of Maggie in particular was very well narrated and her gentle kindness came through very clear in the audio.

I must be honest however: As much as I enjoyed the narration there were moments where I ocassionally could not make out what was being said initially and had either to rewind slightly or refocus. This did not affect the majority of the book and I still believe the narrator did a good job particularly at portraying the captain, Commander John and Maggie.


Overall I do recommend this audio book. I have disclosed any potential bias but I admit I would still be willing to buy this book even if I had not volunteered to review it when asked. I'll keep an eye out for any more audiobooks from this team.
