"Eye-searing lances of energy lashed back and forth across the base with methodical accuracy, and a single cowering witness, flattened on a ledge in the heights above, knew that when the last of those yellow-red bolts fell, nothing human would be left alive down there."
And so Shann Lantee, most menial of the Terrans attached to the camp on the planet Warlock, is left alone and weaponless in the strange, hostile world, the human prey of aliens from space and aliens on the ground alike.
"Up to Norton's best standards." ( Library Journal)

Excellent story...and well read.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. Very suspenseful. Lots of unexpected things happen. Have to "suspend your disbelief,"of course but that's the way with all science fiction.
What did you like best about this story?
I had a long car trip coming up ( 3 hrs each way ) so decided to get an audio book to make the time pass more quickly. I browsed around and came across this one.I had read a couple of Andre Norton books, back when I actually had time for reading,and I liked them. Bit of a crap-shot on the narrator, though, since I had neverheard him. I got lucky on both counts..good story and good narration. The book was exactly the type I needed.. a good, nasty aliens vs. good guy but with many interesting twists and turns and lots of suspense. Even some "food for thought" thrown in.
What about Jim Roberts’s performance did you like?
The narrator was just the type I like...Someone who gives a good, clear, intelligent reading without going "over the top" and trying to act the story out. Will be looking for him again.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When the hero finally gets some help fighting the bad guys.
Any additional comments?
Five stars to book and narrator.
