Publisher's Summary

A space station at the edge of the galaxy just found a planet that’s slipping off the edge entirely. 

After losing control of his magic, wizard Cedric the Brown blew up his boss and nearly crashed a space station into a planet. Determined to make amends, he pledges to help the mining station negotiate with the nearby planet's mysterious, magical inhabitants.  

With nothing but the bankrupt station as severance pay, Director Fujita Hiroko moves to the edge of the galaxy to keep the station afloat as an independent mining operation. When the nearby planet vanishes with her and her survey team still on the surface, hopes of mining are quickly replaced by a more pressing goal: finding a way back to her station.  

Shadow Planet is the first audiobook in the Black Ocean: Astral Prime series. It hearkens back to location-based space sci-fi classics like Babylon Five and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Astral Prime builds on the rich Black Ocean universe, introducing a colorful cast of characters for new and returning listeners alike. 

Come along for the ride as a minor outpost in the middle of nowhere becomes a key point of interstellar conflict.

Nice start to a new mission

Although $10 for a 4 hr 42min title is a bit much, I feel I got such a great value with the 1 credit for 84 hrs of the Black Ocean Mobius edition that it was worth it.

Mikael Naramore is fantastic and it was really very nice to get back into the Black Ocean with him.

The story and characters are good and it was a good start to this new series, but not enough content to really consider it a whole story. I've given it a fairly high overall rating due to the potential for follow on story lines - I look forward to them. In the future, I'll wait until they combine a number of them together so I can get more than 4 hours of entertainment.

Coming of age

Coming of age for Cedric ...... father like son Mort will be proud. Mr Naramore is one of the best narrators. Just brilliant.
