A human's a human, no matter where from
First off, I have to say that Justin James is one of my favorite narrators. I have listened to almost all of his books, and he makes the character voices in ever single book sound genuine and unique. If you don't pick up this book, pick up some of his other stuff.
I was given this book for free in return for a honest review. I know that this book is the third in a series, but this was the first one I read.
I almost never pick up this type of science fiction and that means I am unfamiliar with most of the tropes and pitfalls that come with this genre. I can tell you that there was a steep learning curve. I was not given much time to learn about the character's worlds, or how they had come to be fighting as a freedom fighter/terrorist group. I had to pick up things as best I could as we plowed deep into the story.
I loved the characters in this book. Each one of them seemed like the hero of the story who was perfectly right and just in his convictions, until the point of view changed, and you could see them as the monster every else perceived them to be. In many ways this book is about the fall of a good man who made bad choices because he felt like he had no other choice.
The politics of the story were interesting, but the characters were what kept me reading. If you like science fiction, go ahead and pick this one up.

By: Rhett C. Bruno
Narrated by: Justin Thomas James
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
This book was filled with politics, intrigue, action, adventure, character studies, and emotional upheaval. I really got caught up in the action and plot. I loved the sci-fi and the interactions between the characters. The ending...I did not see that coming at all! Wow!
The narrator should get 10 stars! Wow, what a performance! I could FEEL each emotion from the characters! What a awesome job! Thanks for making this book even better! If I just read the book it would not have been this exciting.

Titan's Wrath sees the welcome return of Malcolm Graves, Earther, Collector, thought dead at the end of an earlier book in the series. A Collector is a bounty hunter, employed by one of the largest of the Corporations, and Malcolm was one of the best, a legend.
Kale Trass was Titan born, a thief who had struggled to make a living and, through circumstance, found himself leader of the movement to take back Titan from the Earthers who had brought disease and dominance to less robust indigenous inhabitants. But taking back his planet was not enough. Kale was out for total power - and revenge.
Equally determined to stay supreme to ensure the essential mining supplies only the Titans can provide, the head of the Pervenio Corporation and those other rival ruling companies are forced into further galactic confrontation and doub!e dealing on all sides.
This is an intensely exciting, action packed and fitting conclusion to the Titanborn short series, each book of which - including this one - can be read as a superb standalone. Fabulous characterisation of equally excellent characters, the whole world comes alive with author Rhett Bruno's vivid writing. Emotion and humour, too. Each book is a perfect gem.
Narrator Justin Thomas James, if at times a little fierce in his delivery of some of the speech, gives a good performance overall, his pleasant voice reading with undertanding, his delivery of individual protagonists distinct.
Titan's Wrath is a book not to be missed.
