Publisher's Summary

Anne McCaffrey captured the interest and hearts of many with Freedom's Landing, as Catteni slaves unexpectedly became settlers establishing a new colony on Botany, presumably an uninhabited M-type planet. In Freedom's Choice, the saga progresses to an extraordinary level.

The shipments of Catteni slaves continue, but they find that they are enjoyably reinventing the creature comforts of home, and searching for the origin of the Farmers who were the original occupants of Botany, all under the keen eyes of two very different observers.

When scouts for the Emassi come to retrieve Zainal, shanghaied in the original shipment of slaves, Botany changes irrevocably.

Listeners will delight in this continued adventure of survival, romance, and ingenuity.

We finally meet the Farmers

This second book in the series has the colony continuing to prosper and they also finally meet the farmers. On an odd note Zynel seems to be the only one of his kind that is actively given a chance to show a different side of the Catteni. Aside from that the book is fairly even handed and well written.

spoiler alert ***** drunk rape

I wanted to only say amazing things about this performance, it was a bit of a shock at first but very amazing to have multiple voice actors along with the narrator when the first in the series only had the single narrator. However, halfway through this story I got hit with such a shock that it has left a sour taste. The main character Chris has been a strong fierce no nonsense powerful woman throughout, until the author decided to add pregnancy. Because Chris cannot breed with Zainel, she had to get pregnant from another human. In order to achieve this, the author caused a broken arm and to dull the pain a man took care of her and they both got drunk and ended up in bed together in chapter 9 or 10. Chris just let it slide. "Oh we were drunk and I think I enjoyed myself so it's fine." No. No no no no. Chris would have been so guilt ridden for cheating on her mate as well as infuriated over being taken advantage. It was absolutely out of character and it sickens me. Near the end of the book she got upset about a different man sitting close and touching thighs. But being raped while drunk off hooch was no problem. This is not okay.

One of my favorite book series!

Susie Breck was was wonderful. However, after having read all 4 books, of the series, numerous times, Dick Hill's voices, didn't sound right, seeming out of place, for the male characters, spoiling the enjoyment, of the reading, for me.

Great performance!

I have listened to a few books where the reader does all voices; as a matter of fact the first in this series is like that. I love the series so bought this, the second, book in the series. Many readers, each with their own voice which makes it easier to decide who is speaking. This was a joy. I have purchased the third and am hoping for the same!

Narrator Still Needs a Dictionary

The addition of other voices for characters helps, but the main narrator needs to crack open a dictionary. Really, truly. At least there are no more of her cringeworthy attempts at an Aussie accent! The story itself is as amazing as ever.

FANTASTIC!!!!!

I love this series and the performance by the voice actors was great. It's a nice change from one voice actor trying to be all the characters. The casting was very well done. I really look forward to the next book. When I read the series again, I'll be hearing these choices as I read.
