Publisher's Summary

Clarity's home is her spaceship. Living on the move. Planet to planet. 

When money trouble forces Clarity and her traveling companion, Irohann, to take on passengers, Irohann worries his secret identity will be revealed. He's a canine alien on the run from an empire of sentient plants, and their queen has a personal vendetta against him. 

But Clarity believes his fears are unfounded and the Doraspians gave up on him long ago. 

Heartsick at the idea of losing their ship, Clarity accepts an offer that's clearly too good to be true, and they find themselves swept up in the crazy schemes of a rogue AI in a stolen robot body and her haphazardly assembled team of disparate aliens, including a hive-minded swarm, a giant insect, a rabbit-like alien, and a living spaceship who loves bunnies. Together, the team must break into an abandoned science station, mangled by an entangled particle trying to destroy the universe. 

When disaster strikes, Clarity steps up to pull the team together, but it may come at the cost of the very home and friendship she was trying to save.

Don't miss this space opera full of unique and unforgettable aliens, and a universe full of adventure. Perfect for fans of classic space opera, from Star Wars to Firefly.

Grab this if you love Space Opera, AI, or Aliens!

I hadn't run into either author or narrator before, but I know that Aethon (a small, start-up-publisher run by two Scifi writers) keeps coming up with winning books and audios.
  First I fell in love with the narrator, Sierra Kline! Then I downloaded the book! Even though I'd only listened for the briefest snippet, Sierra Kline didn't let me down! Her narration performance was sublime.
  Next I fell in love with the story's protagonist, Clarity. It was simply a matter of meeting her first mate Irohann, to fall in love a third time! Irohann's an alien who looks like a canid complete with red fur an a waggling tail (OMG, tell me that's not a Clifford Easter-egg).
In order to keep her home (which happens  to be her precious starship) "afloat", Clarity has to find paying passengers quick, what she ends up with is a motley group. Starting with an AI, and several other races of aliens, no one the same and each with attributes which will help the AI perform a rescue mission... and along the way we end up finding a Starwhal (think Narwhal... then think Star Trek... the Space Whale)! What's not to love?!?
I know that Mary E Lowd has to be a Space Opera/Scifi geek! My guess, she's read Startide Rising, David Brin's magnificent work. And maybe even Vonda McIntyre's underrated book Superluminal. It's possible the she's also read Jen Foehner Wells Fluency series too. Well enough speculation. What I do know is... If you love a fun space adventure, weird aliens, animals, or any of the authors I mentioned, you're sure to enjoy this!
This is a great example of character driven plot! And yes these assorted Aliens have to work out their differences with each other before they can even attempt the rescue! Whoo Hoo!

It's a different kinda story.

I liked the book. I am not crazy about the tone of voice the narrator uses. The sample is an accurate representation of her voice. It's just a personal thing with me. It did not take away from the story, just made me change eq settings so I could hear her better. It's a weird little story, so I got the second book too. I'll see how it goes from there. My opinion about the narrator reflects auditory issues I have from my time in the military. If you don't have those issues, I think you will find her voice very relaxing and easy to listen to.

Unique💙

Entanglement Bound is a cool tale neatly written with a cast of unique creatures, characters & environments.

Sierra Kline did very well with narration.

It will be interesting to see what's next.

I was given this book at my request and am voluntary leaving a review.

Unique Characters in a Unique Universe

Clarity and Irohann live on ship. They travel the galaxy and enjoy each other’s company. After some time together, they run into money troubles. Irohann wants to sell the ship, but Clarity loves her ship and tries to find a quick way to make money.

Of course, as soon as she puts out that she is open for passengers, she gets a request that is too good to be true. She is to purchase a specific robot, sounds easy right? Nope, the robot has a piece of rebel AI. And has a plan of her own. This leads them across the galaxy meeting unique individuals like a ‘man’ made up of all sorts of insects and a rabbit-man pilot. It is a great unique take on a space opera.

The narrator did a great job. I was not familiar with her work before this book, but I enjoyed it.

Good Space Story

I enjoyed this story, but in the middle of book author lost steam and just kind of let plot slide then picked back up to finish the story very well.
The Main character Clarity is a unique person with love of dolls, Dedicated to her shipmates, always tries to put all the ones she cares about first. I Love Cassidy and her bunny obsession!!

I’m ended up here for the cover...

I stayed for the story. I loved this tale of Starwhals and spaceships. The cover does a great job telling you what to expect but its oh so much more.

This is a thoroughly enjoyable title.

I go through a lot of Sci-Fi. Most of it is military stuff with gruff characters that border on being hero’s that pull off the victory in spite of long odds.

This book has plenty of Sci-Fi goodness, long odds, but little in the way of hard men. Instead it has ...bunnies. It’s actually a really nice story with plenty of cute thrown into the mix. I don’t want to give up any spoilers, so that is about as far as I am going to go.

It’s a fun story and left me in a good mood. I’ll most likely check out the next in the series.

Creative, if oddly childish

I liked this book up until just before the end.

The main character is supposedly an adventurous, well-travelled, middle aged woman.
Yet in this story she is also profoundly naïve and often almost irrationally emotional in the face of adversity.

At first this was not such a problem, honestly I thought it was kind of an interesting take, something different from all the 'blaze, yippie ki-yay' protagonists.

But by the end, the MC is written as nothing more than a ball of emotion.

Where anyone with some emotional maturity would realize that things are really bad, buckle up and work through it, because there is literally no choice. The MC does not.

It reads as if this person has never known hardship of any kind, never had to work a crappy job, has never known the sorrow of loss or has been rebuked. I know teenagers with more emotional maturity than this middle-aged adventurer.

The emotional stunted-ness is not limited to the MC however, the supporting character are also incomplete: wise grandparent is easily scared and flustered, Experienced parents fumble with the love for their child, Life-long friend is oblivious to the plight of a friend, and so on.

This really starts to be annoy towards the end of this book, particularly because the MC suffers emotionally from all that is done to her, while failing to realize that she herself is just as bad. Betraying trust, Deserting friends (then not going through with it), literally giving up the secret identity of a friend (by accident?!)

This book is written so everyone 'should' feel bad for the MC, but take a step back, and you realize she is just as bad, maybe worse.

The creativity, the written description of creatures, the worlds and their beauty are what carries the story of this book more than the development of the characters.

Fantastic start to a series

Just when you think it's going to be a fairly everyday story of a cargo lugging crew with a few struggles to get on with life kinda of story and then it goes all "Farscape" on you. Brilliant, thank you for coming up with an original take on this. I doff my hat to you.

Very interesting concept on aliens and how they'd view us plus the insect collective alien that I don't think I've ever come across before an idea so breathtaking and original.

Never heard a book narrated by Sierra Kline, but I will keep an eye out for more. Very clear and good differentiation between characters.

Appealing Audio

This was a bit more of a check it out and see listen, the characters and situations that happen along with the general feel of the story is very farscapesque which i found appealing.
A little too descriptive for a lof the general feelings and perhaps a little too flowery for me personally i think.
By the end however i found that i was quite drawn into the world and further adventures of our characters.
Narration i found suited this story very well and Kline did an admiral job and would check out further work from her.
I requested this audio and have decided to leave my thoughts.

Team of diverse aliens on mission to save universe

Team of diverse aliens on mission to save universe

Good fun space opera adventure with team of different looking and sounding aliens with a living spaceship on a mission to save universe.
The main character is Clarity (story from her POV) a 50-year-old woman but in this universe humans live up to 200 and she acts more like 25.
Just wonder where book 2 will go after a mission to save universe.
Sierra Kline did very good job narrating this book
