    I enjoyed this book of intergalactic space adventures.

  • d frederick

    I really enjoyed this book. Has multiple moral issues, coming of age story, friendships, and a real sci-fi story line. Technically interesting and believable premise (future-wise).

  • Lloyd Soss

    The reader was like he was forced to do it and the book made no sense it all just had no idea what it was about

  • kristen beer

    Decent title. A few minor flaws here and there. Really liked the narrator. I have started a few audio books that I stopped because of the narrator, so I was exceptionally happy with this reading.

  • Hannah Romias

    This was a gem of a surprise made of the 8th color. I was on a trip around galaxies that MZB created. I enjoyed the plot and the characters. Wish it was longer than 14 chapters.

  • Gianelli Lopez

    Simple story plot, great science fiction atmosphere. Good but not life changing. Interested take of peace and sharing.

  • Lincoln Burnham

    Ideal reader for the entirety of the book. I found myself trying to find moments when I could catch another chapter or even a part of a chapter. I enjoyed it immensely.

  • Stephanie Clark

    This book is a sleeper. Wasn't expecting such a great story from a free book. Kept me hooked from the start. If you like science fiction and you like FREE this is an awesome read (listen)!
