As the carrier of a rare gene, Sirantha Jax has the ability to jump ships through grimspace - a talent which makes her a highly prized navigator for the Corp. Then a crash landing kills everyone on board, leaving Jax in a jail cell with no memory of the crash. But her fun's not over. A group of rogue fighters frees her...for a price: her help in overthrowing the established order.

No, the voice would make a great Ramona. She tries her best with emotions but she sounds like children or tween books would better suit her voice.
Her voice is too grating and distracts from the story. I love the entire series and have all the books. But I get a migraine from trying to listen to the disparate voice. She doesn't sound tough, much less old enough to match Jax. Wish I listened to a sample before I bought the audio version.
Very disappointing because I really looked forward to the audio series.
A Good Story
The narrator - she is skilled, but this book did not fit her voice. She was always in the same mode emotionally. She did not scale up for stress or down for the times Sirantha was breaking. It wasn't monotonous, just not a great acting performance.
I could only ever make it halfway through. Aguirre's writing is excellent, but the narration just got me. I'll put this in the "to read" pile.
Doubt it, the movie would lose out on the emotional roller coaster that Sirantha was on (as the narration did).
Excellent book. Excellent narrator - not a great acting performance (which I desire greatly in my audio books).
