Summary

Black Widows is a thrilling science fiction series about the infamous all-female mercenary unit. Aboard their heavily-armed ship Medusa, they embark on secretive missions throughout the crumbling Confederacy as it wages a terrible and bloody civil war.
The lives of Syala and her twin sister Arana change forever on the day the slavers hit their new home on the Skylla Research Facility. It is a day that started like any other, before turning into a terrifying massacre as soldiers and hideous creatures swarm through the facility killing or enslaving anyone that stands in their way. The sisters struggle to survive as a desperate few try and fight back, but nothing can hold back the horde. Until they find a single mercenary dressed in black armor who refuses to back down. Her name is Zhang Wei, and she is a Black Widow.

Great Episode and I am looking for more.

I wasn't totally sure when I came into this one, so many shorts are just that, part of a larger piece, and I guess this is just that. It shows in the setup and execution. But it's not a bad thing. I think we get so used to having longer works that we forget the excitement of receiving something as part of a series... so kudos to both writer and narrator for taking this on. It's well worth the listen and the time to start investing in both narrator and characters.

Story wise, I do think that the all-female cast is really good. It's not over-done, it's refreshing because they're strong and they think. It's not all about the action.

Of course, I had my fav, and Nancy did a fantastic job of distinguishing between them all even though it was a very short just under 2 hours long.... it was worth investing in and I'm looking forward to more, and will happily follow this new series :) so thank you.

As the author of this review, I received a free copy of this audio, with no requirement to review or endorse. These are my honest thoughts on this story/narration.

Lot's of Gory Action

This was a decent short story about a female group of mercenaries after a group of alien slavers attack. I really enjoyed this short story and listened to it straight through. It has lots of action, but the mercenary team often had to use their wits to solve a problem. I thought Nancy Peterson was a good narrator. She has good pacing and good range for her voices, even the male characters. I would recommend this to my friends. I received a copy of this audiobook for free in exchange for a fair and honest review.
