Summary

Mars destroyed his ship - but gave him a new one.
Mars drafted his Mage - for the good of humanity!
He should have known that wouldn’t be the end of it….
Captain David Rice has a new ship, a new crew, and a new set of Jump Mages to carry him between the stars. All he wants is to haul cargo, make money and keep his head down.
His past, however, is not so willing to let him go. An old enemy is reaching out from beyond the grave to destroy any chance of peace or life for Captain Rice - and old friends are only making things more complicated!
All he wants is to be a businessman, but as the death toll mounts he must decide what is more important: his quiet life or the peace humanity has enjoyed for centuries.

Let down by narration

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Overall this audiobook is a disappointment, the narration is robotic and sub par.

If you’ve listened to books by Glynn Stewart before, how does this one compare?

Exceedingly poorly

Narrator is painful to listen to

So disappointing as the storyline is quite good. The sound recording on the voices just screams cheap and nasty.

I want to know what happens in the story as I'm invested at this stage but I'm struggling.

Good story, terrible narrators

While I would have preferred more Starship's Mage books with Damian Montgomery, this isn't a bad alternative. Glynn Stewart is a great writer, and so it's no surprise that this spinoff is also good. It puts more focus on the technological aspects of the SM universe, and less on magic, which is interesting in itself. The story is original enough that it doesn't come off as a copy of others either, which is hard to pull off when removing the magic focus on the series. I know the series will eventually merge the storylines into a third series, so even if this wasn't good, I'd get through it just for continuity's sake. It is, however, quite good on its own.

Unfortunately, the narrators are among those whom I cannot fathom why they even have a job like this. Audiobook narration is an art, and not everyone is suited for it. If the narrators themselves don't have the insight to realize that, the publisher, or at least the author, should. All of those seem to fail quite often on Audible, regardless of the publisher, and they have definitely failed here. Replacing Jeffrey Kafer is incredibly risky, as he's just so good. With this technically being another series than the original, there's some logic to wanting a different narrator, but that desire has backfired to an extreme degree here. These two narrators have worse character range combined than Kafer has alone, as the two of them only manage to provide a female and male voice by being one of each themselves. Within each gender, every character sounds for all intents and purposes exactly the same. Neither of them fits any character in the book, and neither of them can voice more than one character without causing confusion. It doesn't exactly help that Ian Gordon sounds like French Stewart either, as the latter's connection to comedy has severe implications on anyone who sounds like him and tries to sound serious.

I see that these two narrate together on many books. I'm guessing they manage to sell authors or publishers on the idea of two voices being better than one, but it's not when they are just that bad at their job. It's nothing personal, but these two shouldn't narrate anything.

Disaster of a procuction

This Audio Book was destroyed by the addition of Echo or Reverb. I have no idea why the audio book was setup that way, but I didn't make it passed chapter 3 before I gave up. It was a total disaster of a production. I will not buy anymore of the series.
