Category:  Science Fiction

Average Rating:  4.0

Jake Melkins is a few months away from turning twenty-one. By the Seceltor Empire's laws, he will have to go to a breeding camp, or directly into slavery. Neither choice appeals to him. All this changes with the arrival of a space-and-time-traveling being known as Evaran at the space station turned rest stop that Jake lives on.

To make things complicated, Greecho, the slaver who abducted Jake as a kid, has arrived at the station. He and his crew, along with his twenty-two-year-old human pet, Kathy, are about to go on a slave run to Earth.

Evaran has decided to interfere and free Jake and Kathy. That decision will lead him to Earth, where he will need to deal with the consequences.

This short prequel provides some very appreciated introduction and backstory to Evaran's character and realm. The "science" is definitely fiction, and not well explained, but fairly typical for this genre. Some of the grammatical usage I encountered in this book surprises me.

Michael Pauley's performance is quite satisfactory. His voice characterizations are distinct and appropriate. It is the cast of characters that will draw readers back to this series.

NOTE: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
