Publisher's Summary

A superb science fiction adventure set in the rubble of a ruined universe, this is a deep space heist story of kidnap, betrayal, alien artifacts, and revenge.
The galaxy has seen great empires rise and fall. Planets have shattered and been remade. Among the ruins of alien civilizations, building our own from the rubble, humanity still thrives.
And there are vast fortunes to be made, if you know where to find them....
Captain Rackamore and his crew do. It's their business to find the tiny, enigmatic worlds that have been hidden away, booby-trapped, surrounded by layers of protection - and to crack them open for the ancient relics and barely remembered technologies inside. But while they ply their risky trade with integrity, not everyone is so scrupulous.
Adrana and Fura Ness are the newest members of Rackamore's crew, signed on to save their family from bankruptcy. Only Rackamore has enemies, and there might be more waiting for them in space than adventure and fortune: the fabled and feared Bosa Sennen in particular.
Revenger is a science fiction adventure story set in the rubble of our solar system in the dark, distant future - a tale of space pirates, buried treasure, and phantom weapons, of unspeakable hazards and single-minded heroism...and of vengeance.

Great story, crap Mastering/Post work

What did you like best about this story?

A departure from Reynolds work. 1st person perspective that took me quite a while to get into. At first I thought I was going to be giving this a very poor review, but after getting into the book (after a binge of hearing John Lee narrate some space marine books) I started to really like it. A bit of a steampunk/Victorian feel to it, but still a lot of fun.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Clare Corbett?

Clare was fine.

Any additional comments?

Whoever mastered/edited this needs a freaking slap and if I see you at APAC I will. Shame on you! As a narrator myself, under another name, I was shocked at the quality of this. Whoever edited this did not bother to listen through after they ran it through a fairly aggressive noise-gate. When Clare is being quiet, which is quite often, the db drops dramatically where the processor lowers the volume to the point that whole words are barely audible at times. More often the end of soft words are cut off/reduced to near inaudibility. If Clare had been louder in her reading it may not have been a problem, but with her habit of half whispering at times it was extremely annoying and IMO the book should be pulled and re-edited.

warning headphone users: volume needs normalizing

The story is fast-paced and much more dialogue-heavy compared to the author's other books. The audio volume is troublesome for me, however. There are sections when the narrator is whispering quietly followed by much louder exclamations that hurt my ears. I recommend ripping the audio and renormalizing it so you don't have to strain yourself to understand what is being said.
