Would you consider the audio edition of Future Winds to be better than the print version?
I don't see how one edition could be better than the other.

Aisha because she's a badass!
Have you listened to any of Tia Sorensen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have not, but I am interested.

The ending was pretty fantastic!
Any additional comments?
I've got no more words. Just going to patiently wait for the sequel!
Future Winds is a well-written, gore filled adventure. The narrative examines humanities innate lead and follow architecture. Characters were easy to relate to, even as the collapsing infrastructure forced brutal choices. I was however, left with many questions and hoping for a sequel.
I normally don't give bad reviews. However, all the reviews I read on this book were stellar and I found this book no where close.
The Good: I really liked the character development, would love to get to know some of the characters more - both the native planet characters and the human colonists. The overall story had a lot of potential.
The Bad: it felt rushed and should have been a trilogy or more. Ever watch a movie or have someone tell you a book summary from a high level and you can tell it should be great, but all the beauty was left in the mind of the director or story teller? That is this book. I can tell the author had an amazing world and story in his mind, it just fell flat. The story builds up lots of interesting plot lines that just go away. I understand the overall messages, key points, an impact to the message, etc I just felt there was too many pieces built up that have little reason to be there other than filler.
