What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
When you read a story like this, you want to be able to lose yourself in it, it is about escapism. Unfortunately, there are some issues that make it difficult to suspend belief and really get into the experience.
This includes things like a starship going from space to the atmosphere to underwater.
Now space to atmo is fine for the most part, it requires some changes or allowances to the craft. But underwater requires some significant changes as just because it can go in Zero-G, with no air, doesn't mean it can survive underwater, or more to the point, that its engines work underwater. And in the event that they do, there are significant differences in detection techniques underwater than in space, as well as the weaponry used. Non of this was taken into consideration at the start of the book, in which our main character just fights off pirates in space, then straight under the water, with no changes to his Trident (appropriate name for under the water though!) The really annoying thing was that later in the book, it is brought up that their ships need to be altered for use under water in a later fight, after the initial fight has already occurred without modifications??
There are multiple little (and some bigger) things like this throughout the book that take away from it, making it difficult to read, and ruining its fun, destroying the escapism.
There was also a lot of what I would call 'Teenage Soap Opera Dialogue' as well in this book between the characters that detracted again from the story.
Has Star Runners: Revelation Protocol (#2) turned you off from other books in this genre?
I will probably give part 3 a go, simply because I'm a bit OCD when it comes to books and like to finish the series off.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
The Narration was one of the really good things about this book, they did a great job. They had a great voice, and used it to generate an interesting and comprehensive set of Character voices for both Male and Female characters.
What character would you cut from Star Runners: Revelation Protocol (#2)?
I wouldn't - it just needs to be polished up a bit
