Publisher's Summary

The first book in an action-packed new science-fiction adventure series.
Vulcan is a factory planet, centuries old, company run, ugly as sin, and unfeeling as death. Vulcan breeds just two types of native: complacent or tough. Sten is tough.
When his family is killed in a mysterious accident, Sten rebels, harassing the Company from the metal world’s endless maze-like warrens. He could end up just another burnt-out Delinquent. But people like Sten never give up.

THE MASTERPIECE BY JERRY SCIARRIO

The whole series is a masterpiece of science fiction, it deserves solid four stars, but narration by Jerry Sciarrio moves it to extraordinary FIVE STAR MASTERPIECE!!!!!

PS
My only regret is that only book 1-5 are narrated by Jerry Sciarrio.

Mediocre narration of a good, fun book

It was not a terrible narration, just not very good. The narrator's idea of giving each character a unique voice tended to come down to assigning them random bad accents.

For those who've read the series: He gives Mahoney a bad British accent. That's gotta be some kind of sacrilege to commit on an Irishman. And apparently the Eternal Emperor is an Aussie now.

It doesn't ruin the experience altogether, but it does detract from what ought to be a fun military SF action-adventure. I probably won't get the second in the series, unless it's free or cheap. "Sten" is a better read than a listen.
