The narrator characterizations, especially of the ship's engineer and the "always smiling" tone really detracted from enjoying the audio book. I would like to hear her normal voice. It's probably quite pleasant.
Rei is a girl on a mission, with everything taken from her she is a wild card. Now, she’s the captain of a starship she’s doing anything she can to keep afloat.
I don’t like to speak ill of anyone or anything. I personally did not like the narration of this book at all. I had an incredibly hard time getting into it because I found the narrators voice jarring. I understand that the character is a YA female, but the voice just felt forced and overly-animated. This is genuinely the first audiobook I’ve listened to in a long time that I could have skipped and read the story.
The story was great, I found it a quick read (it is meant for a younger audience) with some great characters in it. Rei was hard to pin down for me. I couldn’t figure out her motives throughout the book–which caused me to question why she was doing some of the things she was doing.
I’m not a fan of fantasy — I could go at length about the differences between Sci Fi and Fantasy and why they shouldn’t be categorized together. I’m usually a Sci Fi purist but, the author did a pretty good job keeping me interested even though she was mixing Fantasy into my Sci Fi.
This was another one of those books that has a cliff hanger ending/not-ending. I miss the days of a book that has an ending.
If you’re looking for a quick YA Sci-Fi tale with some Fantasy twisted in — I don’t think this will disappoint.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
