Summary

Emma Boone thought her dream job as the new Chief of Security on Lumina Station was going to be easy.

She didn’t expect corruption, incompetence, and murder.

Lumina was a “small-town” space station orbiting above an isolated, quiet, agri-colony planet specializing in exporting wheat, corn, bourbon, and a few other interesting, unusual commodities. When she took the job, she thought a small station with a tiny population of just over 4,000 people would be quiet compared to her last post.

Boone had barely unpacked her duffle before it all went wrong. She had thought way out here, there would be less death, and she would be able to keep her secrets.

She quickly found this far out on the edge of the universe; the only law was the law you brought with you.

Who could she trust? More accurately...

What could she trust?

Time Flew By Listening to This

I listened to this book while eating my lunch and working around the house. It is so well performed that I drifted off into the story. Loved the atmosphere and the writing was crisp. High recommend.

Sometimes the audio book is as good as reading it

I have already read the book, and enjoyed it. Having occasion to listen to an audio book, I figured what the hell.
Conclusion.... good call. Having the book read to you as you drive (and done well too), is a wonderful way to get it again.

If you are a fan of Mil-Sci-Fy or just plain old space operas, glom on Martin Wilsey's books. They are entertaining, very readable, and well written. Good characters, with plenty of action and believable scenarios.

Oh Boy....There's a new Sheriff in Town

A fun and high-spirited time is had on a smaller, distant space station when the new security chief arrives to clean up town. And while she is amusing--she is definitely not amused. Enjoyed both the story and the narration.

Action and intrigue abound!

Great story, a roller coaster adventure. Well read by Naomi. Around every corner is a new mystery.

Solid Audiobook, Solid Sci Fi, Great story

I rated this audiobook at about 93% out of 100%. The only thing that held me back from giving it 100% across the board was a slow start narration-wise. The first action scene, which was a pretty cool one, came out of the gate a little flat. But I guess I adjusted or it got better quick because I really started to dig it. This is a really good story and it was very easy to listen to. It kept me company on long walks. I read the book before listening, which I've been doing more and more. I find that I pick up on things in a different way when I hear them. In this book it was all the little technology details the author lays out casually but are really cool. The narrator did a great job with my favorite character - the AI! I'm always amazed how one person can do so many different voices. That helps in keeping track of all the characters. Great stuff!!

Engaging characters and excellent voice narration.

I recently settled into an airline seat for a business trip to Europe and decided this would be a perfect opportunity to listen to something that was (hopefully) more interesting than the airline movie selections. Martin Wilsey delivered in spades! The characters were engaging and interesting, with a story that kept my interest at every turn. The excellent narration helped to keep the characters distinct in my mind. My only criticism of the narration was "stasis" was pronounced "staa-sis", but this might be a Queens English vs. American English conflict. ;)

My flight seemed so short as Iistened to this captivating story and as a result, I am starting the next book Amazon recommended from Martin WIlsey.

Murder and Mystery on A Space Station

What does a Constable, a Security Station Chief and Artificial Intelligence all have in common? The answer's are waiting for you on Lumina Station.

What's not to love about that?

The story explodes right out of the gate. The author takes you down twists and turns like a tunnel rat trying to reach the goal. The narrator did a fantastic job reading this. I'm not much of an audiophile for books. Prefer holding a book in my hand and turning the pages but this was an excellent read on the road. Naomi, the narrator, used inflection at the right points and the chapter movements were smooth.

There were many references, that I call Easter Eggs, scattered throughout the book.so that when one of them popped up it gave me a sense of being immersed in the characters.

The story moves very well and culminates in a crescendo that had me on the edge of my seat.

If you're looking for a great read, pick this. I'm looking forward to more from this author.

My first audible and I don't like the format.

I don't like the audio format. The very limited ability to jump back a couple pages or chapters to check a name or just re-listen. Other than that Mr. Lincoln how did you enjoy it?

The Law of Lumina in set in Mr. Wilsey's universe and is the continuation of a story started in his first book. The "Martiverse"? It is a universe I enjoy and look forward to exploring further. The pacing is fast and story is interesting. I could have done with a bit more character building or more distinction between the secondary and tertiary characters but that is a trade off with pacing so is also understandable. Lumina Station definitely gave me a bit of an Outland vibe, the Sean Connery 1981 movie, which is a definite win.

The narrator did a great job of intonation and emphasis which was my biggest concern in trying an audio book. Turns out it is the format, not the talent.
