Publisher's Summary

The first book in the Hunted Earth series, published to tie in with the hardcover publication of its sequel, The Shattered Sphere.

The Earth has disappeared, but was it destroyed by an unauthorized gravity experiment, or was the planet kidnapped by an alien race? Humanity must discover the answer before it's too late.

Hoping book two gets the ball rolling...

Would you try another book from Roger MacBride Allen and/or John Haag?

I hate to start a series and not finish it, but this may be a first. The storyline just doesn't quite grab your attention. I kept waiting for things to become interesting.

Would you ever listen to anything by Roger MacBride Allen again?

I would be willing to give them another try.

Could you see The Ring of Charon being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

NO!

Good Book

What made the experience of listening to The Ring of Charon the most enjoyable?

The story is very intriguing. An alien race older than humans and not aware of humans, this is a new twist.

What other book might you compare The Ring of Charon to and why?

Can't think of any similar stories.

What didn’t you like about John Haag’s performance?

His reading is a little wooden.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No.

Any additional comments?

Very good book but you have to pay attention to the story closely to follow what's going on.
