The last full sci-fi book series that I read was We are Legion: We are Bob. So, you can see my bar was raised really high for a new sci-fi series to start with, and Arkship didn't disappoint me. Bushnell does a great job creating a setting in which Earth is gone, and the remains of humanity cling precariously to life in large interplanetary vessels. As always happens, humanity is not satisfied to have survived complete annihilation, but sets about becoming insular and aggressive to other survivors.
Bushnell has a punchy writing style, that comes at you like a comet. His cdharacterizations are intense. I would swear that I have met some of his characters.
Robinson is outstanding here too. He keeps pace with the story, and his voice won't let you go when things are happening. The only criticism I have, and it is a small one, is that I think he needs to work a little more on female voices. Jeff Hays and James Marsters, for example, do incredible jobs with their feminine voice characterizations. I think with a little more work he could be a mjor player as a narrator. That isn't tosay the rest of his work suffers, or that his vocalizations suffer. That is not the case. The story still flows well with what he does, and I am only nitpicking.
I think Bushnell and Robinson make a great pair. They go together like puzzle pieces, each one locking the other in, and keeping the story flowing. Once I got started I didn't want to stop (darn you real life!); the story is really good and you will assuredly want to listen to the next one as soon as you can. Happily, there is a sequel coming, so take heart and get ready to hit this rollercoaster again.

Arkship Obsidian is for fans of Science Fiction/Fantasy. The writing is good and above the level you might expect. Mike Robinson the narrator brings the package together with his fine reading of the story.
A fast paced story you will need to focus on.
