Publisher's Summary

Dropping out of subspace into the wrong galactic sector, Sethran Kada wakes up with a headache and an extraordinary alien aboard his ship. She implores him to help stop the abductions of her people, a newly evolved species emerging from subspace. Their dangerous potential has caught the attention of rebel factions as well as the ruling Commonwealth. When contact with her kind turns pilots into casualties, the Governors fear an imminent invasion engineered by their rebel enemies.

Pursued by Air Command, Seth heads deep into rebel-controlled territory to recover the stolen entities and to keep this deadly weapon from falling into the wrong hands. Things get personal when his alien visitor begins to transform his mind and his life, turning the rescue mission into a fight for survival for all of them.

Quantum Tangle is part of Chris Reher's Targon Tales series but does not intersect the other stories. Sethran Kada previously appeared in The Catalyst and in Rebel Alliances.

Great Story

it was different but that made it a great story. not the same old same old that many sci-fi stories have been taking lately where it seems like you have read..or listened to the same exact thing about 5 times. Unique, original and still very good seems hard to find but this has it. I have hundreds of sci-fi books on audible due to my drive being 3 hours a day and this kept me entertained so I would recommend to anyone.

More Seth adventures with a very strange companion

What did you love best about Quantum Tangle?

Chris continues with her popular Sethran spin off of the Trans Targon series. This time Seth encounters a very unusual and intriguing character who imbues Seth with certain superhuman capabilities. As with all Chris Reher books this one stands alone with a satisfying ending leaving you want to read more but not compelled to. I really like that in a series. There is action, suspense and some very, VERY unique romantic encounters! You can use your imagination but you'll be wrong!All the characters are believable and multidimensional. You would recognize them should you meet them on the street...especially Kohe!The scenes are vividly described and the plot engrossing. This is another fun book from Chris Reher and shows her imagination and mastery of the genre.

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

I did read the book. Will Damron enhances the emotional content and the characters. He differentiates the voices and nuances well and consistently. He definitely does the female voices well, not an easy task for a male.

Any additional comments?

This is a solid, fun read/listen!

An interesting universe.

This is the second Targon book I've listened to. I'm really enjoying the universe Reher has built.

No Redeeming Qualities - and odd narration mistake

What would have made Quantum Tangle better?

I have no idea what this book is really about. After about an hour I realized there was no reason to listen to the rest of it.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Will Damron?

I only listened to a small part of the book, but noticed some very odd narration mistakes. At one point he read "unless" when he meant to say "useless." Weird.

I'm starting to think people don't trust me.

Sethran is a loner: spy, agent, assassin? Perhaps all three. His home is the little ship, Dutchman. And he's well connected - his boss is one of the ten Commonwealth leaders. Waking from a subspace jump he finds he is somewhere other than where he expected to be, every instrument on his ship flashing warnings. And a voice in his head telling him to sleep. No way he was going to do that, except he does, for the next five hours.
Everybody knows that there is nothing in subspace, except a voice in his head tells him he is wrong, a real voice, not his own, one of a non organic sentient species which had found him 'in between' when he went by. The creature rapidly learns languages and takes on a form visible to Sethran which only he can see, a disconcertingly beautiful woman who decides to call herself Koe, and she asks Sethran for held: others of her kind had been abducted, including the one who binds them all together, without whom their race would end. She's in his head - what else can Seth do but agree?
So begins a race around the galaxy which will uncover power plots, put Seth into frequent danger and the associated frequent fights, and a strange romance with that someone in his head.

The story is action filled after the initial section, the first contact with the entity. The world which they inhabit is only lightly drawn but the characters are interesting, from pirates to telepaths and, of course, those sub space brings themselves. Will Damron, the narrator, brings it all alive with multiple voices for the various protagonists whilst, in between, the text is read clearly, with good intonation and a warmly pleasant to hear voice. A nice performance.

Not having read any other of Chris Reher's books set in this universe, there were times this reader felt some confusion, but it was only slight. Overall, the storyline was g9od, the concept intriguing (if a little worrying) and the two main protagonists well drawn and empathetic. I will certainly be looking out for further books in this series - this particular volume is a stand alone but with an ending which encourages the reader to read on - and I can happily recommended it to any science fiction fan.
