Good stories too painful to listen to.

This book emphasizes the importance of good narration. While the narrator was ok in the narrative voice, the character voices were absolutely painful. If I had not previously read Undercity, for example, (a very good book) I would never have purchased it after having read the first half of it here. On the other hand this book was a good look into the mind of Catherine Asaro.

This is an anthology!

This anthology contains two Skolian novellas: "Aurora in Four Voices" and "Light and Shadow" featuring Soz and Kelric, respectively, prior to Primary Inversion and The Last Hawk. Also "Ave de Paso" featuring Akushtina prior to Catch the Lightning. Additional novellas include The Spacetime Pool, of which Asaro is writing further; and City of Cries, which intros the Major Bhaajan, a SciFi P.I. Asaro has already written a followup novel, Undercity. Last, you also get her essay on "A Poetry of Angles" which is her math without the storyline.The narration works. Recommend.
