Summary

Robert Garry, ex-military officer, wants nothing more than to maintain his integrity and his team's safety despite a career change to pirate leader, but a cargo freighter he targets proves to be holding much more than he bargained for.

Will he escape with his own life, let alone the lives of his crew?

He has always shunned the 'folk hero' label but is he in danger of becoming an arch villain in the process?

Marvellous

A great story of epic proportions. A true joy to listen to. Excellent narration and the added sound assests sold me on the story 100 percent. Would reccomend to any Elite fan or even those intrested in epic Sci Fi in general. HUZZAH

A dip into the Elite Universe...

I'll be looking for more of the same from the author and the narrator. This was a rollercoaster ride from start to finish. I'd like to hear more about the characters and their backgrounds.

Engaging and Thrilling

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it's an excellent read and very informative of the lore. The book is well written and it hooks you right in from the very beginning. Out of all the Elite books I have read, this one was the most exciting. The story is very engaging, and has a lot of action and mystery. I did feel some things were a little drawn out near the middle of the book, but it is definitely worth a full read. I actually plan on listening to it a second time to look for parts I may have missed.

What did you like best about this story?

What I loved most about the story is the same thing I hated most about the story.
And that would be the fate of Soontill. I believe Robert Garry made the wrong choice and may have very well endangered us all.

Any additional comments?

If I ever find Robert Garry in the game, I will kill him for his crimes against humanity.

sounds are annoying

sound effects were annoying, especially in the hospital with the beeping of life support machines for 10 to 15 minutes.

Full Production Quality

These Eilte Dangerous Audiobooks are a must-have for fans of the game (without exception) and Science Fiction. Full production with character. prices and SFX. May be short but the quality makes up for it in spades. Intense deep story and character building. New favorite.

full-time radio sound effects not for me.

honestly the book may be okay which is why I'm giving the story three stars.

as world building fiction goes it might be okay. The characters are a little weak. maybe they would have come into their own if I had made it through the whole book.

for me the sound effects are just impossible though. first of all there are all these distracting volume changes due to the reverb (bulkhead?) and compression (comms). there's also these random sections with music that are telling me how to feel which is something I don't expect in a book.

if you really want that old time radio new for this millennium feel this is probably an okay book for you.

definitely not what I was looking for.
