Publisher's Summary

Reluctant privateer Robert Fenaday searches the stars for his lost love, Lisa, a naval intelligence officer whose ship disappeared near the end of the Conchirri War. He's joined by the genetically engineered assassin, Shasti Rainhell, whose cold perfection masks her dark past. Both are blackmailed by government spymaster, Mandela, into a suicidal mission to the doomed planet Enshar. Leading a team of scientists and soldiers, they must unravel the mystery of that planet's death before an ancient force reaches out to claim their lives.

    Story
    "A true gem for the Space Opera fan"
    Would you listen to Was Once a Hero again? Why?

    Possibly. Its a good story and, and at some point it would be worth a relisten.


    What about David Loving’s performance did you like?

    David Loving brings an added dimension to an already great story.


    Any additional comments?

    First, to get it out of the way "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review".
    This story is fine addition to the world of Space Opera.If you're a fan of Andre Norton, or any of the greats of old fasion space adventures,you will enjoy this one.In many ways this compares with the stories of the Solar Queen, or the stories by Murray Leinster.
    It has a steady pace with few, if any,parts that fall short.
    Edward McKeown is an author to keep an eye out for. If this is any indication of future stories,there will be,hopefully,many more well worth your time.

    Here's how I rate

    On narrator
    5= good read speed, good pronunciation, appealing voice/voices.
    4= an issue with one of the above
    3= many issues
    1-2 I couldn't finish because of his voice

    His pronunciation of many words was very off putting
    Every character basically only had one voice

    Story
    5= good plot, keeps my attention, it doesn't ramble along, good character development
    The rest follows a similar to narrator
