An OK space sci-fi adventure.

Writing
Isaac Stone’s Idea to do Dante's Inferno in space is a unique idea with a lot of possibilities. What we get is an interesting idea that does not quite live up to its potential, the writing is clear and the dialogue is good. The story has good pacing and keeps moving. If you are looking for an action story set to a slight horror sci-fi background then this may very well be the story for you.

The fights are well described, have good pacing but feel like they lack any real sense of risk or danger. I would describe them as action film fights.

There are many horrible things that are seen in this book and yet it does not seem to as much effect on the characters as I would expect and the way it is written deals with it all with a light touch. If the subject matter was lighter then this style would fit it perfectly.

All the characters seem to be well developed but due to the short length, I did not have time to get to know them or become truly attached to them.

I definitely feel this book would have been better if it was longer and had the time to do things in more detail and let us learn to care for the characters more.

Narration
Persephone Rose’s narration is clear, consistent and easy to listen to. Each character has their own unique voice adding to their personality and making it clear who is speaking.

There are a few bits where I think lines were repeated but other than that I did not notice any errors or problems in the quality of the audio.

Overall
This is an ok book, but the fact it’s tone is more action and less horror detracts from it in my option.
At only four hours long this is a bit on the short side but worth a listen if the concept interests you.
