One of the worst books I’ve listened to

The story is weak, but ok. However, the narrator really put me off. The terrible British accents and the pitch of the voice made me drop this 75% way through. I don’t ever write reviews and usually score most books 5 stars, but this was so poor that I figured I’d share my opinion.

Spoilt by narration

Excellent tale as always. Spoilt for me by the narrators voice. Just did not match for me sadly

Irritated

Listening to this book for a second try because I can't remember anything about the story and the next in the series just came out. After 2 hours of my second attempt I'm incredibly irritated with the author and the narrator and rating the book for return.

The story.....I still have no idea who's who or what's going on. I can't follow the story! So I rate it terrible. Then there's the narrator.....she's kind of ok in the Kurtherian Gambit series BUT apparently she only has the same voices she uses in that series and I keep thinking "what's that character from KG doing in this book?" Sending this one back.

I have enjoyed the story until now.

The new narrator is terrible and the lack of attention to detail is very bothersome. The inconclusive battles with no new real development, along with the indistinct voices for characters make me not want to continue the series. Thanks for everything so far but I will definitely be asking for my money back

The narration in this book is horrible

I love all the books in this series. I have just binged on all of them Starting with Starship Blackbeard through this one. I should have paid more attention to a change in narrators. I just can not listen to this and will be asking for my money back. Here is a note for new narrators listen to the previous books. I understand voices may be different but when you pronounce the names of alien races incorrectly there is no excuse for that. I am very disappointed.

Good story as always but

Changing the narrator threw me off, she tries her best but there is a ton of mispronouncing and the voices were are all wrong to me.

Voice acting not good!

The story also is a little repetitive. The Space battles have gotten a little predictable and author seems to use same descriptive words over and over again. Don’t know why they got a different voice actor but would rather the story just be narrated rather then attempting voices.

Action Packed

Good book with lots of descriptive action. He could go a little deeper on details to match some of the best out there but I am not disappointed in any way.
