Publisher's Summary

Starseer, pilot, and animal lover Jelena Marchenko wants to prove to her parents that she's ready to captain her own freighter and help run the family business. When she finally talks them into getting a second ship and letting her fly it, it doesn't faze her that the craft is decades old and looks like a turtle. This is the chance she's craved for years.

But it's not long before the opportunity to rescue mistreated lab animals lures her from her parentally approved cargo run and embroils her in a battle between warring corporations. To further complicate matters, her childhood friend Thorian, prince of the now defunct Sarellian Empire, is in trouble with Alliance law and needs her help.

Torn between her duty to her family and doing what she believes is honorable, Jelena is about to learn that right and wrong are never as simple as they appear and that following your heart can get you killed.

Loved it!

Maybe because I'm old 'n decrepit, or maybe because life has been especially hard these last few months, but this audio book has been just what I needed. Not giving away any specific plot lines here, but, the main characters roll head long into one fiasco after another, all with the best of intentions, leaving chaos in their wake. Somehow they manage to do some good along the way. Ah, youth. The story by Lindsay Buroker is great, the performance by Emily Woo Zeller is excellent, and I recommend "The Rogue Prince" very highly!

Great SciFi Adventure!

If you could sum up The Rogue Prince in three words, what would they be?

Action packed adventure!

What did you like best about this story?

The quirky characters and ongoing action.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Jelena invades the castle!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not at first but it grew on me and by the end I could not put it down!

Any additional comments?

When I first started reading this book, I wasn't so sure about it. But before long I found myself hooked! Jelena is a feisty and hilarious main character. She's a pilot of her own freighter (well, temporary pilot) and she has a passion for helping less fortunate beings: especially animals. That's what starts the adventure: her decision to free lab animals who are being held captive and tortured by an independent research company.

One escapade follows another after she makes the fateful decision to rescue those creatures. What I loved the best about this book was the character development. Jelena is wonderful, of course, but the side characters are equally engaging. Erick is hilarious and I think he may be carrying a hidden torch for Jelena even though she is blind to it and the reader is focused on Thorian and Jelena's attraction to him. I think there's a spark between Erick and her that may be revealed in future books.

Thorian, on the other hand, is an Anakin Skywalker type. He has taken to using his powers to seek revenge for the deaths of his family living the life of an assassin and now there is bounty on the his head. Jelena believes she can save him but he seems past the point of saving to me (even though we would like to see that in the end).

I can't wait to see what the next adventure in this series brings with it! A fun, scifi read - check it out!

A great “younger” voice!

In thoroughly enjoyed this new offering from Lindsay. She did a great job with the voices of younger characters while still giving me an excellent “Lindsay” book!

It took me a bit to grow accustomed to Ms. Zeller’s narration style - she’s sometimes a bit too dramatic with her breath and tone that it was a bit off-putting. But her portrayal of Jalena, Eric and Thor were excellent.

GOOD START. WELL PERFORMED AND WRITTEN.

Enjoyable. The young protagonist have much to learn and though with good intentions get herself and her fellow mates into trouble along the way. Fast action and sometimes quite hilarious. Prince Thorian and Eric, both her friends end up helping her with her outrageous plans and ideas. Emily Woo Zeller performed/narrated excellently and her male voices were creditable. I like the plot and I am looking forward to future books.

Love this coming of age story in space!

Great characters, especially Jelena, who is starting out in life and making mistakes and learning. The story made me laugh and also want to co.me back over and over to find out what happened next!

Love the story

I had a hard time connecting with this narrator. Especially after the last one set the stage with all of the characters and voices and their personalities. Was kind of hard to get over that but loved the continuation of the story

Great story but for a younger audience than my age

This is a young readers story. It's easy to listen to as the narrator does a excellent job with it.

Set in the Brilliant fallen Empire Universe

Didn't love quite as much as the 8 fallen empire books (and other spin-offs). Still a very enjoyable read, performance v. good.

does not compare to the Fallen Empire

after listening to the Fallen Empire books, I lasted 30 min of this new series that seem to be written with 10-15y.o audience in mind

Rouge prince

Another romp with characters that grow on you even if you don't like them, joy to read and listen to look forward to more of a similar vein
