Publisher's Summary

Record of a Spaceborn Few: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!

Centuries after the last humans left Earth, the Exodus Fleet is a living relic, a place many are from but few outsiders have seen. Humanity has finally been accepted into the galactic community, but while this has opened doors for many, those who have not yet left for alien cities fear that their carefully cultivated way of life is under threat.

Tessa chose to stay home when her brother, Ashby, left for the stars, but has to question that decision when her position in the Fleet is threatened.

Kip, a reluctant young apprentice, itches for change but doesn't know where to find it.

Sawyer, a lost and lonely newcomer, is just looking for a place to belong.

And when a disaster rocks this already fragile community, those Exodans who still call the Fleet their home can no longer avoid the inescapable question:

What is the purpose of a ship that has reached its destination?

Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

About the new age background music...

The soundscape in the background of the narration was at times distracting and times annoying. The audio book would stand alone perfectly fine without the constant hum.

The book and the narration were great.

Confused

Not about this book specifically, but the direction the trilogy took; it was almost unrelated to the first book. Maybe I should have known that but I normally avoid spoilers. Anyway the two sequels are fine but I wish it had been a traditional trilogy. Neither approached the first book imo

More of a soap opera than space opera

Very different from previous books this one follows the lives of several people choosing to live on spaceships rather than a planet. The stories explore culture while following the lives of the protagonists but not a lot happens. If you're after action this isn't the book for you. It took a bit for me to adjust my expectations but I did it and just enjoyed what was on offer. The narrator was good and I liked her portrayal of the characters. Overall more like a soap opera or reality TV show than previous offerings from this author.
