Summary

Written by Drew Wagar under official license from the creators of, and based in the vast universe of, the seminal space trading computer game Elite: Dangerous

Lady Kahina Loren, born into the Prism system's powerful ruling family, is desperate to throw off the shackles of her privileged lifestyle and discover herself, but ambition crumbles when she faces death at the hands of the one person she thought she could trust.

With the advanced technology of the third millennium, death is not always as final as it seems, but when that technology malfunctions, is death the better option?

Story is fine, background SFX intensely annoying

The story is fine, and the vocal performances are great. The laboriously drawn out piratical torture scenes I just skipped forward over. I get it, The storyline needs to establish that the bad guys really are black hats, for their no doubt long awaited final destruction in some future book, but I could do without exposing myself to all that totally bleeped up crap. The real problem is with the post production sound effects. I get the intent. I really do. The background hum of machinery, ventilation systems on ships, whine of drives engaging etc, it’s all an attempt to set the scene and put us onto the decking of a starship in flight, but honestly it’s just damned annoying. I frequently zeroed out the sound, wondering if the freezer in my kitchen had switched into high gear. Or the boiler had kicked on. Or a neighbour was doing a washing machine spin cycle. No, it was aways the damned background sound effects in this audio book. If there’s time to remaster the later books, just kill the background hum, whine, all those sound effects. Just delete them already !

First scifi book since Dune

This is the first sci fi book i have read since dune as it normally doesn't interest me. But all my friends recomend that i take the plunge and pick it up. And boy was it worth it. I hope and pray Frontier grant Drew the permission to make the 2nd book in Audio format so i can continue the journey. Would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to get into the sci fi books as its an easy read well narrated and extremely gripping.

Out of this world!

I was somewhat sceptical about getting this book. With hindsight, I left it far too long. A great story, well told and with brilliant performances. The story time literally flew by. Recommend for those Elite fans or just sci-fi fans in general.

A fun cat and mouse Sci fi thriller

A must for Elite Dangerous fans, a damn fun ride for those who aren't too. If you've come across this book you're probably an Elite Dangerous player. If so, this book brings the universe to life through the escapades of the main characters. It's undoubtedly one any fan will enjoy. The performance is fantastic, the scene setting and world building is excellent too. The sounds effects also help suck you into the story. My one gripe was I felt the story stuttered about two thirds through. Thankfully it sped up and got back on track for a tense finale.

Great story

Enjoyed every moment of this story, and learned a lot about the deeper lore of the Elite universe. a cast of characters just big enough to keep it interesting, but not so many that you lose track of who is who. Wonderful mix of high tech 33rd century and Renaissance technology and society. Loved the political intrigue woven into the plot, and while the writing did have a few brief moments where it got a bit stilted and repetitive, Toby Longworth's performance (and the background SFX/music) really shine. Highly recommended to any fans of the Elite universe, and to anyone who enjoys grand space opera in general.

ive played and currently play the elite games

This book is amazing. I've read almost all available lore as well as listen to Drew Wagars stream of lore and some O.G. gameplay. Saying all that, the book shows an amazing understanding of the game and lore! The voice acting is varied and dine very well, giving tons of life to the characters! They even use the sound effects from the game! If you're a fan of the space sci-fi genre or elite games in general I truly recommend this book!

Swashbuckling fun

The author Drew Wagar has a deep understanding of the lore and mechanics of the Elite universe. The story stands perfectly fine on its own, as an introduction to the galaxy. There are also some subtle nods in the text for the cognoscenti. Narration is great, and the occasional sound effects do not detract from the story. All in all--a fun ride!

One of the best audio books...

The book uses elements of the lore of the game, as well as sound effects directly from the game and takes few liberties with game play to spin a full-blown sci-fi story in the E:D universe. I highly recommend!

Definitely captured my imagination

This amazing story did not only capture my imagination, but also added to the already deep lore of Elite. I hope to see more of this kind of tale soon.
