Publisher's Summary

Catherine Asaro combines her diverse talents to blend hard science fiction and heartrending romance into a sweeping epic known as the Saga of the Skolian Empire. This is her trademark series. Ever since Primary Inversion, her very first novel, this series has continued to grow, receiving widespread praise.
All of Asaro's considerable talent is on display in Spherical Harmonic, the direct sequel to The Radiant Seas.
Separated for decades by circumstance and political machinations, the Ruby Dynasty, hereditary rulers of the Skolian Empire, struggle to bring together the tattered remnants of their family in the shadow of a disastrous interstellar war. Too many have died, others are presumed lost. Yet they must move quickly if they are to resume their rightful place as rulers of Skolia.

Love Asaro, downright embarrassing narration

Is there anything you would change about this book?

A different narrator! I have been following the whole Saga of the Skolian Empire and, like most of the other books, this one was captivating. It had an excellent story line, a nice balance of action, personal relationships and tech that is about as realistic as science fiction can get. Unfortunately, the quality of the writing was undermined by the poor narration. Kaplan would be much better off reading teen dramas than science fiction! Maybe Anna Fields didn't pronounce all the words as the author intended but at least she didn't mispronounce words that should be pretty obvious if you speak apparently "Qox" is now "squawks" without the first "s"...excuse me but where is the "qu" in that word? Oh yes and Eube is now a society of red-eyed aristocratic sadists would have a cute little name you might give to your new puppy! I wish I could give this audiobook five stars but the poor performance mostly ruined it for me.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Liza Kaplan?

I miss Anna Fields!
