Publisher's Summary

Outer Diverse is the first book of the Splintered Universe Trilogy, set in and around the Milky Way Galaxy. The first book begins as Galactic Guardian Rhea Hawke intestigates the massacre of an entire religious sect, catapulting her into a treacherous storm of politics, conspiracy and self-discovery. Her quest for justice leads her into the heart of a universal struggle and toward an unbearable truth she’s hidden from herself since she murdered an innocent man.

Critic Reviews

“A master of metaphor, Munteanu turns an adventure story into a wonderland of alien rabbit holes… a fascinating and enthralling read.” (Craig Bowlsby, author of Commander’s Log)
"A rollicking science fiction plot with all the trappings…Hawke is a maverick in the wild west tradition…a genetic mystery with lethal powers.” (Lynda Williams, author of Okal Rel series)

An Addictive Start To The Trilogy!

This is the first book in a new series and the first from this author for me. We follow the misadventures of Reah Hawke an Galactic Guardian, who is investigating mass murder of a Religious Sect. This is a long listen and you have concentrated at first to get the picture on Reah, the universe she inhabits. We follow Reah’s investigation with a tough and gruff EXTERIOR HIDES of things that have happened in her past that have haunted her ever since. The more you learn the more you want to KNOW. There is one concession when I finished there is book two to listen too.
The narration is addicting leaving you wanting more.

Splendid narration makes story come alive!

If you could sum up Outer Diverse in three words, what would they be?

Like an action movie with depth and intrigue

What other book might you compare Outer Diverse to and why?

Outer Diverse and its two sequels in the Splintered Universe are like a cross between Star Wars and Game of Thrones with a sprinkling of detective film noir ...

What about Dawn Harvey’s performance did you like?

Dawn Harvey breathed incredible life into the lead character, Rhea Hawke--both sarcastic and vulnerable at the same time; a detective with a cynical edge, and sultry voice tinged with wiry sarcasm. The story unfolded through Rhea's narrative like an old film noir as she unraveled mysteries that led to the greatest one: her own.

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

Listening to Dawn Harvey's performance--she narrated some 30 different alien voices, including the sentient ship of Rhea's--gave each character an independent presence that had me listening with intense pleasure. There were places where I was very tense and others where I laughed and cried.
