Summary

Stranded, Loham Babar has spent the last 15 months living amongst humans.

During the day, he’s a South Chicago high school janitor, slopping a mop around from nine o’clock to three o’clock, five days a week. At night, hiding out in an old boarded-up factory, he attends to his damaged interstellar spacecraft, making repairs and counting the days until he can return to his homeworld of Calunoth. All he needs to do is mind his own business and avoid any messy human dramas for just a few more weeks.

But it is on one of those quiet nights when he hears them outside: the MP140s. Named for a police radio code for murder, these bangers are among the worst, most ruthless killers in the entire city. Peering down from the third floor window, Babar recognizes the quiet hermit boy below him, the one with the ugly facial scars, walking into a death trap. Little does Babar realize at the time that this scared, complicated, seventeen-year-old will be the key to saving the distant Realm of Dom Dynasty.

Let down!

I agree with James's review, how does this get published? regret reading it. It seems like bits of multiple plots were put together to form one book.

Great book, fantastic narration

I thought the book was great. Good characters, pace was excellent, and good plot that sets the tone for a good series. I listen to A LOT of books and have to say that Fred Berman might be the BEST narrator on Audible right now. I know that's saying a lot (sorry Mr. Bray), but he truly is a remarkable storyteller!

Written for teens

Good plot, lousy execution. Definitely written for teenagers. I was surprised to find how old the author is.

depressing as hell

first the book is well written and not too bad of a story just the way its written is depressing AF i only made it about half way through but the mc just gets shit piled on 1 after another for no reason other then to make the bad guy as unlikeable as possible just seems unnecessary and depressing to me

Scifi space opera.

Sort of a coming of age story line for two humans and two aliens. Drags a little at the beginning, but starts to get interesting by the end of the first chapter. The sudden shifts to explain the young prince's history. why he acts and did the things he did. Seem too abrupt.
Fred Berman did a great job on the narration. Thus making it a really good listen. Distinctive voices and dialects. Fred is definitely the man for book two.

Good story!

This was enjoyable listen. The storyline and characters were good for single book. Fred was great as always. Would like to see the story continue.

Not my cup of tea

Just didn’t appeal to me. Didn’t care for the narrator, performance or the plot line. Others may like it, but not me. That’s the way it goes....

cringe fest

if you are into the whole stupid teen, just because he is in high school and does teen "trope" things. Then this novel is for you.

The other non cringe stuff was quite excellent, and would have traded 2 books for way more of it.
