Hawks had refused to help the ambitious Lazlo Chen in his quest to find the five gold rings that could break Master System's hold over humankind -- and that refusal had landed him on the deadly prison planet Melchior. But when Hawks and some fellow prisoners engineered a bold escape, it seemed almost too easy. Hawks guessed that Chen was pulling the strings, but he couldn't shake the feeling that there was another, greater power involved. And that scared him. Now the stakes were rising, and Hawks was more determined than ever to find the gold rings. But Master System was out to capture him, and Chen was trying to follow him -- and the only place his small band of rebels could hide was smack in the middle of pirate territory...
Jaime does a good job narrating the story. There were funny moments where he mixes up the voices making me think he's just narrating the book without reading the whole thing first. To his credit though, these occurrences were very few. I also like the nuances he crafted for some characters which the book worth listening even more.
How could the performance have been better?
I'm sorry, the performance is dreadful. Much too fast a read and so flat it doesn't deserve to be called a "performance". I wonder what the story would be like with another.
