Editorial Reviews

Author Alan Edward Nourse is a classic voice in the world of sci-fi. In Image of the Gods, Nourse tells the nail-biting tale of an Earth colony's fight for independence. The trouble begins when Earth's government is overthrown and replaced with a totalitarian government. The colonists, who inhabit a faraway planet, refuse to live by the totalitarian rules of Earth's new government. A group of native inhabitants- nonviolent aliens called "dusties"- help the colonists in this thrilling fight for freedom.

Ben Hurst's voice honors the inflections of Nourse's characters. The audiobook is sure to keep sci-fi fans entertained.
