I wish all science fiction was written this well.

I can't believe I've never heard Matthews before.I was absolutely hooked after the first, I listened to the entire set on audible in one week.

Word play combined with some crazy well crafted diction make the characters in this series shine. Point of view flies between almost every character your ever introduced to, you get to see conversations played through every participant. Trust me you'll get to a point where you can't wait to hear whats going on in the heads of the main characters.

The publish summary doesn't really let you know what you can expect. This series deals with torture, enslavement, genocide, and corruption on a galactic scale. There is a lot of scenes that may turn people off to the series. I guess steer clear if you've got a weak stomach for graphic detail.

Downside is the most recent in the series isn't on audible yet, and considering it's been 7 years since it came out I'm not sure you'll ever get a real conclusion to the series.

Great story read by a great voice

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?


What was one of the most memorable moments of An Exchange of Hostages?

The explanation of how the governor works.

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


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Very enjoyable story.

Any additional comments?

Matthews is a brilliant writer; I knew the story from reading the book some years ago but it was a treat to hear this reading.
