Great Story Continues.

Great story line continued. Nikia continues to grow in strength & all other character are coalescing painting the big picture.
Narrator portrays all characters flawlessly.
Can see this story pointed at YA.

Fast paced

This story involves the revolution and immediate aftermath. It involves people on several worlds and the struggles they are going through during this period. Nikki must deal with the death of her husband, and then the many people who are killed following her. The Governor of Trapper's Colony must deal with a colony that is trying to declare it's independence. The leader of a space fleet must decide if he will follow orders or defend the people. And a miner left to die discovers the mining company have also left the entire colony to die.

This book contains many story lines that are woven into a solid tapestry. It is done quite well and forms a complete unit. The narrator does a decent job of telling the story as it unfolds.

This book was provided free of charge with the expectation of an honest review.

ok

I both liked this book better than the previous one and thought it naive in the extreme. I also felt my initial 'this is just reality with a filter' even more strongly than before. Here we moved away from the persecution of the people and on to the revelation. However, it has to be the most limpid revelation ever. The 'nice white lady' (as I deemed Nikia in my previous review) makes some rousing speeches, goes about being as pure and innocent as snow, and inspires everyone with her mere presence. Then, sets out to create a perfect socialist utopia that even Bernie Sanders would sign off on. Thus she saves all the poor oppressed people, while somehow still maintaining that her ruling-class family is somehow innocent in it all. (It's all very familiar.)

Do I sound like I'm rolling my eyes? I was rolling my eyes. I don't know why it irritates me so much.I think it's just that it feels discordant, close to real life, but off. Like it's experienced a phase-shift or something. Or maybe it's just that it feels like a rip off to see someone take the same social reforms many today would like to see enacted and paint them across science fiction as something new and original. How much creativity does that take?

Beyond my irritation at the mining of present day media for this fictional account, the writing is pretty solid. The editing seems strong (as well as I can tell in an audio book), and the narrator is still doing a good job.

Note: I received a free copy of this book. I chose to listen and review it.

Amazing!!!!

I LOVED book. It kind of sticks out in my memory more than the other 2 books, although I'm not sure why. Rachel Ford has some serious talent and I really hope to read more from her when this series is done. I'm really looking forward to reading book 4. Also, the narration was pretty perfect! This has been an amazing series so far!

This book has been given to me at my request(Thank you!). I am providing an honest and voluntary review.

It just keeps getting better!

I've given 5-star ratings to quite a few books and audiobooks, but this series has made me think I should give more four stars, or otherwise I need to give this one six stars!

These are SO fantastic, I am so drawn into the story. It takes a lot to create numerous characters and have the listener care about (or hate) each on of those and Rachel Ford has managed to do that masterfully. I don't care about one or two, I can name each main character and I strongly want them to succeed (or die!). It takes a lot to get me so involved in a story.

I'm so happy I found this series. I seriously can't recommend it more highly!

The character of Nikki is very interesting

It has taken 3 books to get truly in depth character development. This book was good and moved at a good pace. I still don't like the sing-song affect of this narrator. I would go so far as to say that I would purposefully avoid titles narrated by this person in the futre.

Wow!

This book was top notch. I enjoyed the intense plot twist as Mrs. Eden takes a simple act of trying to arrest her husbands murders, and turns it into an all out revolution. The people on central have managed to succeed in starting a new way of life and things seem to be going great. This is an exciting book that I enjoyed listening to and can't wait to listen to book 4 in the series.
I received this as a free copy for my honest review.

Bit disappointed after last 2

I felt this book was weaker than the first two. This book now starts to bring the characters together from the first two books. I felt that it was clunky and a little rushed, this story is really based around the central characters offering rousing speeches to enact a great wave of change but I felt that these were weak, and for me made the whole book feel flat. i'm looking forward to trying the 4th although I think I can see where it is steering us.

Excellent 3rd book of Tribari Freedom Chronicles

Loved this one, the action really took off and I was glued to every chapter, it was so good I could even overlook the bothersome narration.

A great concluion to a great series

I really enjoyed this book, it is different from the normal Sci-Fi that i listen to or read in that this was more about society and the oppression of working class citizens rather than just blowing stuff up.
You really need to have read/listened to the two previous books before this one to really appreciate it as you will find it difficult to catch up otherwise.

I went straight from the last book to this as I wanted to find out what happened as it left you wanting more.

Please note that I was given a copy of this audiobook to provide a non-biased review.
