Publisher's Summary

Too young and naive to care about the tensions between nations, Dexter Silverhawk considered himself the luckiest man alive when he found a derelict voidship hidden amongst some asteroids. Making it void-worthy and finding a crew to sail it seem like minor problems when he ends up in a Federation prison.
Rotting in a communal cell, Dexter's luck shows a fickle side when a mysterious elven woman is thrust into into his life. Helping her fend off an assault Dexter quickly learns that her mind and her tongue are weapons against which he has little defense. Unable to resist, he hires her at the first opportunity.
Surviving both politics, sorcery, and even ancient curses will force the growing crew of the Voidhawk to put aside their differences and work together. What remains for the young captain is the lessons of when to heed his mind, and when to heed his heart.

Wild, Weird and Wonderful!

Would you listen to Voidhawk again? Why?

Yes...and I probably will. Because it's THAT good! Worth a second listen.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Voidhawk?

Ah...really can't say because it would give too much away.


What about James Killavey’s performance did you like?

Excellent job with the many voices.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Nope...too long. Really made some car trips fly by though.


Any additional comments?

My wife and I are both big fans of the all-too-short sci-fi series, Firefly. When listening to this we both noticed a lot of similarities to that show, which may be one reason we liked it so much. However it is also quite different in many ways. In this strange universe there are also dwarves, elves and other strange creatures...a little like The Lord of the Rings characters in space! It takes a big "suspension of disbelief" to accept many things in this universe but, once you get past that, there are wonderful characters and lots of "swash-buckling" space adventure. In short, we both loved it! This is the kind of book that could easily be made into a series...and we hope it is.

Wooden Space Ships, Elves and Dwarves? It's Great

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

No, simply because it's so richly written with such a variety of characters. While J. Killavey does a very good job, the mix of characters, male, female, Dwarf, Elf and numerous others it's very difficult to get the same characterization the come aboit while reading.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Voidhawk?

When Kishira opened eyes for the very first time.


Have you listened to any of James Killavey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Unfortunately no, since he does a credible job.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes it is. With the variety of characters and the surprising situations ( wooden space ships) coming to grips with the physics and details of sailing the void ( bubbles of air, gravity and magic) it takes a little to get drawn into the tale. Consequently I found myself wanting to stay with it for a bit.


Any additional comments?

Ot's incredibly fun and creative. Yes it's different and a little unbelievable But if you're able to suspend some preconceptions it's great fun and a wonderful tale.
