From the Author of The Guild of the Cowry Catchers:
While the crew of the Scarlet Albatross struggles to survive her harrowing voyage, Gerard is busy keeping his promise to his father. He and Silveo return to Holovarus for a brief farewell visit. However, chaos is threatening to overwhelm the Great Islands, and even little Holovarus will not be spared. Gerard's father and brother are facing difficult decisions, and they need help. Gerard feels torn between his old kingdom and his new family.
The situation only grows more complicated when the crew of the Scarlet Albatross limps into port, bringing old enemies and a child Silveo didn't know existed. Jager Thunder is a sequel to both The Scarlet Albatross and The Guild of the Cowry Catchers sagas.

Great Continuation of The World of Panahmindorah
The Audio Version is technically superior.... .If and Only If you were not spoiled by the full cast audio in Guild of the Cowry Catchers. As someone that has listened to the Guild of the Cowry Catchers more than 10 times without getting bored, the voices for each and every main character is Iconic. Hearing Gerard and Silveo in Jager Thunder.... It is missing the additional Charm of Norm Sherman's voice as Silveo and Nathan Lowell's deep but compassionate voice as Gerard... those are the voices I miss the most. Both narrators do a great job. I was admittedly taken aback by Gwain's voice which sounded very very close to the original.
I did notice however that Anaroo, Cpt. Acklebee... and really most of the Scarlet Albatross cast set in this book voices sounded less like them. Or perhaps the VA for them tried some different techniques?
Hard to choose honestly. I know all the cowry catcher characters so well it hurts to choose honestly. I appreciated Gerard's struggle the most however. The struggle between duty and happiness.
See above in the initial Question
Yes. But alas, I don't have time to sit for 17 to 18 hours in one spot.
I highly recommend all of Abigail Hilton's Panahmindorah books as well as Hunters Unlucky. They are all available here on audio. The Guild of the Cowry Catchers is a full cast production that definitely benefited from being edited together from its original Podiobook status.
Thank you for Writing the books Mrs. Hilton and thank you for having great friends and contacts to bring your characters to life past imagination.
