Two hundred years after a nuclear apocalypse forced humanity to flee Earth, humans still remember the most feared warriors of that planet - the Paratwa, genetically modified killers who occupy two bodies controlled by one vicious mind. The legendary Paratwa named Reemul, known as the Liege-Killer, was the strongest of them all. Now someone has revived Reemul from stasis and sent him to terrorize the peaceful orbital colonies of Earth.
Is this an isolated incident, or has the one who unleashed this terrible power announced a gambit for control over the entire human race?

And the wait was totally worth it.
Narration: Took me a little while to get used to the voice and style but then it as fine once he decided to pronounce paratwa properly.
Story: Loved it when I read the books 20+ years ago. Love it still today.
"I'm very glad I stayed with this book"
In the start this story seemed overly complex and poorly read. I stayed with it for some reason and it engaged me. I'm looking forward now to reading the remaining two books.
Read the book twenty years ago when I was in high school. I was anxiously waiting for the audible version so I could listen on commutes. Fast paced story, lots of action, science fiction, just the way I like it. The narrator did a great job with characters, but I kind of felt like he was a grade school teacher reading to children. The narration was still excellent though.
Really enjoyed this story. This is a must read or better yet listen to. Can't wait to hear the next two books!!
