This is the 2nd book but my first in this series. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The only reason I did not listen to this book in one sitting is that I had to sleep and work. This book is a science fiction adventure with a touch of romance and humor. I will definitely read more of this series.
Narrator Steven Barnett is wonderful at bringing the characters to life. He has a great voice and comedic timing. His narration is an added bonus to an already great book.
I was given a copy of this book in hopes I would submit a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
