Publisher's Summary

Rath's short-lived rebellion has gone horribly wrong. The Senate lies shattered, devastated by a surprise attack. The Federacy sits at the mercy of General Yo-Tsai, a brutal dictator who now controls a super-weapon. Above the planet Tarkis, Rath drifts helplessly in orbit, watching as the Jokuan invasion fleet descends on his homeworld. His girlfriend has been captured, he's running out of air, and he's just a single man against an entire army. But he's also the galaxy's most dangerous assassin...and he's very, very pissed.

Another must-read if you are a Rath fan.

Would you listen to Rath's Redemption again? Why?

Yes. Typically, I don't listen a book twice but if I did, this one would be at the top of the list.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Rath. it is hard to pick a favorite character out of this book because there is so much going on and the author really develops the other characters, like Boziron, Pason, Dessi, etc.

What does James Fouhey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Personality to the characters. The narrator does an excellent job of using his voice to define the unique personality of each character.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes. This is an extremely exciting book that keeps you wanting more.

Any additional comments?

This is the best of the series. It is action-filled for 7 1/2 hours. I listened to this book in one sitting, that's how good it is. Surprises, twists and turns, it's like being on a roller-coater. If you have read the other Rath books, which you really, you will not be disappointed with this one and you will probably agree that it is the best out of the series.

Effing swearing in 2400

I am still not sure why the author decided to so frequently use a certain swearword as though it is going to be commonly used in 400 years. I found it distracting from another wise excellent story. The other distraction was the lack of advancement in technology and certain basic gaps in the science, such as instantaneous radio communication across distances that took quite some time for "faster than light" voyages to cover. I gave the story and performance five stars each but these are the reasons for a three star overall rating.

Rath retires

Rath's Redemption is the final installment in Piers Platt's 2nd Rath trilogy. When we last saw Rath, he was drifting in space in a suit without oxygen after General Yo-Tsai had doubled crossed (and killed) Anders Rickers. At the same time, Dazi is closing in on the Neopuritans and Rath's homeworld, Tarkis is the Jokuan;s first invasion target. Fueled by anger, Rath must channel his inner contractor to save his life, his girlfriend, his planet, and the Federacy so that he can return to Scapa to be sentenced for murder. He's seen worse.

The sci-fi elements are in line with earlier installments with a cute addition by Pasien to overcome a ship in the wrong place. The stupidity of Rickers' plan to actually place weapons of mass destruction over every world even though he was bluffing, backfires. The Jokuans are basically barroom brawlers and Pasien's contractors finally get taken off their leash. Dazi and Bouceron make a great team, although Bouceron and his girlfriend are destined to partner up permanently. Senator Fos and Rowan finally get some cosmic justice, but not before nearly screwing the pooch for the whole federacy. This is light-hearted fare without much complexity or subtlety.

The narration is more than respectable for an adequate range of voices, good pacing, and a tone ideally set for the sophistication of the plot. This is a fast, easy listen that does not require close attention.

A fitting end

Just when you think you have everything figured out, book 6 takes you on a roller coaster ride of twists and turns. I am happy to report book 6 ends with a strong resolution and gets us there in such a great way!
