I began listening to Nathan's books when he was reading them himself. I loved the way he narrated and knew exactly how each character would be feeling at the time. I wasn't sure if I'd like the new reader and I didn't at first. Given time I've grown to accept him and I'll say he did a great job with the book. All I request now is...... more books, Mr. Lowell!

Gosh now I want the next one. I was afraid of being disappointed by the narrator as I'm used to listening to the author but that wasn't the case at all. What a great book!

I have, years ago, had the very great pleasure of listening to the author, Nathan Lowell, reading the preceding Trader Tale stories himself when they were podcast. He is a wonderful narrator and I thoroughly enjoyed hearing his caramel voice. Jeffery Kafer is a fine narrator and I almost got used to his "black coffee" tones, he certainly has a great range of voices and his female characters sound very good. But for me, Nathan is the voice of Captsin Wong.
Having got that off my chest let's consider the Tale. At the end of the previous book; "Owner's Share", tragedy had visited our erstwhile Captain and left him bereft just when we all thought he was happy. Thank goodness Audible have released this book and put me out of my misery! It's clearly the start of a new phase of life for Ishmael Wong and I, for one, am cheering him on and look forward to seeing what happens next.
If you haven't already, do listen to the preceedung books, this is a stand-alone story but it will be better appreciated heard in sequence. Narhan Lowell has a fine gift for making a future of Solar Clippers and interstellar travel so very plausible, its a pleasure for me to slip forward in time to this reality. There are no aliens, but tbe author describes real humans with familiar quirks and foibles, machinations and sneakiness, all set in a possible future. Our hero is very likeable and innocently wise, and his story is not yet over.

This was the therapy Ishmael and I needed after the ending to Owners Share. Building to another great story.
After the author's narration of Traders Tales this performance jars. In particular the female voices didn't feel natural, undermining what in Traders Tales were very strong characters.

The charm I found in the original books is missing with this new narrator but it’s good to be back in Ishmael’s universe .
Really awesome and enthralling. Riveting and developed characters and scenarios. Looking forward to the next instalment.
