Publisher's Summary

Reese Eddings has enough to do just keeping her rattletrap merchant vessel, the TMS Earthrise, profitable enough to pay food for herself and her micro-crew. So when a mysterious benefactor from her past shows up demanding she rescue a man from slavers, her first reaction is to say "NO!" And then to remember that she sort of promised to repay the loan. But she doesn't remember signing up to tangle with pirates and slavers over a space elf prince…

    "good book, horrible voice"

    I like the book, but the man reading it ruins it. His reading sounds all breathy, ironic, and unaccountably lazy and indolent. He in no way matches the tone of what he is reading.

    "I couldn't get pass the first sentence."

    Money wasted. I couldn't get pass the first sentence. The narrator gave me chills and not the good kind. He sounded like a creepier.
    This might be a good story but I'll never know.

    "Narration faltered but thought-provoking story"

    Male narrator's voice for strong female protagonist sounded unpleasantly like a hoarse old man. Voices for other characters were distinctive and seemed to fit. Multi-culturAL story was interesting and engaging.

    "Worst performance EVER!!"

    I would give this a Negative 5 stars if possible! In general, if I don't have something nice to say, I just don't say anything! This performance sound snide and condescending from the FIRST sentence spoken!! I read the book, previously, and would rate it 3-4 stars. I thought the audio version would be pleasant to listen to while I went about my tasks about the house....Big NO, HECK NO, & NOT Gonna happen! Thank goodness I only paid $2.15 for it!!!!

    "Good story bad narration"

    The story takes a fun and novel approach to interspecies relationships. The narrator makes it difficult to listen, though, by whispering whenever he is not in character. He seems to have a good voice but does not use it.

    A few improper tenses should have been corrected at editing.

    "Good story"

    I enjoyed the mix of characters, but had a hard time with the Captain. I wanted to give her a 'chill pill'.
    Her complaints were voiced a little too frequently and she had too many emotional fits about the wrong things.
    I wanted her to be smarter because she was The Captain. She missed the whole pirate/trap angle which she should have caught.
    Otherwise, I did like the book and I will read the next one.

    "One of the best stories I've listened to this year"
    Any additional comments?

    I'm a fan of many of Hogarth's books. While I enjoy reading them, I usually listen to them first. Her choices of voice actors makes listening to her books a delight. Daniel Dorse creates terrific voices, and uses them consistently. In addition, he understands her stories, and uses his narration to emphasize the points she is trying to make. Hogarth is excellent at describing different cultures through the relationships of characters in her books. While I may not always agree with her conclusions about culture and behavior, I always come away thinking more deeply about what she said. But she is not writing essays hidden in fiction. Her action and dialogue are wonderful, and the pacing of her stories draws you in. Highly recommended.

    "Obnoxious, affected narrator"

    I gave one star only because there's no way to give none. I couldn't even listen to this book it was so annoying. Don't waste your time and money, maybe read it yourself...

    "Great story, difficult narration"

    Loved the story, found the narrator's voice to be distracting and annoying. I would not buy another book with this narrator, too difficult to listen to.

    "Earthrise"

    At first I found the narrator a little frustrating but more I listened the more I realised that his voice suited the story. The story is not complicated but was surprising pleasant to listen to. Although this type of story of an off beat crew that seems to constantly find themselves in situations that are dangerous to their well being, the writer has written in such a way that it is a fresh and intriguing. The balance between seriousness and humour is just right. If you don't want to listen to something heavy, I suggest you give this a try.
