Publisher's Summary

Abducted from Earth as a child. Sold into slavery. Forced to fly the ship of a ruthless pirate. Sarah knows nothing of her homeworld or her people. Her one longing is to return home.

Little does she know humanity is no better off. The Elders, a ruthless alien race, rule Earth with an iron grip.

When Sarah’s ship is ambushed by an Elder frigate she is thrown into a life and death battle. Survival would send shockwaves throughout the galaxy. Never before has an Elder warship been beaten in one-on-one combat. For Sarah, it would also open up a way for her to return to the home she has never known.

The Voyage Home tells the story of one young woman’s quest to find her home world and confront a galactic superpower.

A Fun Tale that Builds on Itself

It took me a bit to get used to the writing style, having just finished a long series of books by another author. I soon found I just wanted to keep listening well into the night, as the story unfolded. Thanks for an enjoyable experience.

When finishing a book, it’s nice to have Audible present the next books in the series, but, if not published yet, an expected date of the next book’s release would be very helpful.

Good, uplifting, light sci-fi.

Almost Young adultish, but in a good way. Channels a bit of Ryk Brown, but with a bit more realistic main character and less cliff hanger plot devices. The narrator really brings out the character, good and bad, of Sarah. I recommend this to anyone looking for a something interesting without requiring concentration. I look forward to the next installment!!!

Didn't Grab Me

The story starts off dramatic - child suffers trauma, then sold into slavery, the author pulls me in by the plot. But, that's where it ends. The main characters annoy me just a bit, some of the characters are unbelievable. I will try to get through the rest of this book, but the main turn off is with the audio. I am always hearing "she said, he said, Sarah said" after EVERY sentence it ends like that, its a bit annoying and ruins the flow of the book. Advice to the author: Trust your audience is intelligent enough to make the distinction between which character is speaking. You do not always need to point it out every time.

I tried but couldn"t finish it

Struggled with it from the start. Got to a point where I just couldn't keep going. The MC is trusting and niave bordering on out right stupid, dispite being tortured and abused by pirates for most of her remembered life??? It was impossible to connect with the story as it went from one implausible situation to another. The MC's personality has no connection at all with her background story. The only character I liked was the ships AI.
It is sad since the story had potential.

absolute drivel.

I tried to finish this book but gave up at chapter 15. The narrator is terrible and expresses sentences in a totally unnatural way. The whole experience was a waste of my time. I liked the idea of the AI and that is that. will stay away from author and narrator, they have nothing for me whatsoever.
