Wish audible would have a special on this series

Would you consider the audio edition of Rise of the Corinari to be better than the print version?

Yes by far and even better then the text to speech version

Any additional comments?

I read all 9 books in the series and then listen to all 9 books with my son using text to speech. We both love this series... My son saw that this book had a special whispersync price of $2.99 since we already had the kindle version and bought the audible version. He told me that the audible version was a 100 times better than the text to speech version. These books are too short to waste our credits, too expensive to buy so we are hoping to get them during an audible special.

A page turner

I have enjoyed this series. I had chosen to read Ryk Brown’s books because he is a local author. Many years ago my mother suggests that I always attempt to read authors from our area. I have done that over the years but now with e-books and the machine that our local book store has that prints books up while you wait more local people are writing, some good, some bad and some are great. For avid readers like me it’s exciting to have access to such an array of books. Ryk Brown is one of the self published Amazon e-book authors that has gone on to great success.

This is book five in the series. In the last book, Aurora arrived in Corinari in bad shape and the second in command, Cameron, needing a hospital. In this book the people of Corinari are helping to refit the Aurora and install newer more sophisticated technology.

I found it great to see how Brown has developed our key protagonist, Nathan Scott, from a rash know- it- all young man into a mature leader. Brown is also taking this time to develop the other members of the crew. It seems that Brown is using this book to develop the characters more and further flesh out the plot. While Aurora is being refitted the crew is helping in the defense of Corinari. It appears that Nathan and Corinari are forming a new alliance of planets in the Darvano system to rebel against the Ta’Akar. Toward the end of the book the Aurora’s repairs are completed and for the first time she has a complete crew with volunteers from Corinari and allied planets. Aurora and new crew is test when two Ta’Akar warships arrive it system and battle begins. Brown writes good space battle scenes and seems to improve with each book.

Needless to say the book is well written and moves at a good pace. The suspense keeps building and the reader knows that a big fight with the Ta’Akar is coming. Jeffrey Kafer does a good job narrating this series. Kafer is a voice over artist and a 2015 Audie Award finalist for audiobook narration.

I had expected better with this book. However, if you like listening to simulation after simulation, then this is the book or you. The only action took place in the last chapter or so. I doubt I will follow the series, although I have worse.

Excellence Continues in Part 5

My other reviews cover a lot of this Saga.
Jeffrey Kafer is just brilliant and makes this series as an Audiobook - if you see him as a Narrator in anything else, don't miss it.

Part 5 sees the Nathan and the Aurora Crew having a breather and a chance to repair and rearm. Nathan has bold plans for the Sector, but can he pull them off so that he can finally have an edge in this conflict and go home? Will all the parties be interested? Will his crew follow him?

This is a pivotal chapter in the series and again, Ryk Brown does such a great job of writing such a complex political piece, making it so easy to read/listen to, and enjoyable.
I love his work, and only hope that this series continues for a long time.

Hopefully whilst he continues to write, Jeffrey Kafer continues to Narrate!
