"Wake up, Matt, wake up", an insistent voice repeats in my head. From that moment, Matt McGregor's life will never be the same. Upon awaking from cold sleep, Matt, co-captain of the space freighter, HC7 McGregor-15, discovers the ship has been abandoned and life support is failing. Once he gets the systems started, he finds out his brother and co-captain, Mike, has been captured by space pirates. Matt immediately sets out to rescue Mike, aided by the disembodied voices. He is reluctantly paired with Federation Lieutenant Tracy Warren. How will they find Mike and save him? Can they work together, despite their differences? Will they survive the rescue attempt? And who are those voices in Matt's head?
Remember the choices when we're exploring in Audio Books, "Sci Fi Contemporary"? This too short listen could be the "Poster Book" for that section. It's a believable adventure with today's hero types finding something to be saved from the bad guys who appear to be government itself who views the electorate as so much cattle to be subjugated. Mixed in is the huge family dynasty that today's souls wished were theirs. A,W, Miller does a fine performance but could work on the female voices a little. I'm looking forward to the next book which I hope will be just a little longer.
I am once again blown away by Mr. Collins!
I'm very much looking forward to the next installment! If you haven't read or listened to a Larry K. Collins book, pick one up today I promise you won't be disappointed!
