Publisher's Summary

E.E. Knight has proven “a master of his craft. His prose is controlled but interesting, and his characters are fully formed and come to life” (Science Fiction Weekly). In his latest Vampire Earth novel, the national best-selling author tells a tale about David Valentine’s fellow freedom fighter Ahn-Kha when he was imprisoned and forced into hard labor by the Kurians - and the rebellion he led against them....
Captured and sold to the Kurian-allied Maynes Conglomerate, to work as a slave in the coal mines of Appalachia, Ahn-Kha is angered and appalled by the dangerous working conditions, and the brutal treatment inflicted upon his fellow miners. When a protest against shortages is deliberately and bloodily suppressed, Ahn-Kha sets himself against the ruling Maynes family and sets out on a trail of vengeance through the Coal Country.
Finally, the people of the Coal Country are driven to the breaking point - and they now have a leader, a powerful and battle-hardened leader, determined to forge them into an army that will wage guerrilla warfare against the Maynes family and their Kurian masters - and free the Appalachians from their tyranny....

This Audiobook is Missing a Number of Pages

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This "unabridged" book contains a number of gaps - places where one or more pages of the original text were apparently left out of the recording. The result is a disjointed, confusing, and frequently confusing listening experience.

Someone should have the author or editor "proof-listen" to this audiobook and correct the omissions. A quick comparison of the printed hardcover edition with the audio version (especially the final chapters) will confirm a number of significant errors in the transcription.


What about Christian Rummel’s performance did you like?

His dramatic delivery and range of voices are very impressive.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The story itself isn't bad. The sloppy, error-filled transcription/editing of the audiobook spoils the listening experience.


Any additional comments?

This audiobook should be pulled from the store until the editing mistakes have been corrected. People who already downloaded it should receive a free book credit as compensation.

IF I COULD GIVE LESS THEN ONE STAR I WOULD

A complete book would help. Then i could actually grade the book n content instead of guessing DO NOT GET UNTIL IT IS COMPLETE. Current length of audio book is 9:34:10
And it is missing MAJOR PORTIONS. DO NOT WASTE CREDIT UNTIL COMPLETE. Book holds great promise but it is currently INCOMPLETE. I will ask that this be removed once the complete book is posted instead of the partial.
