Publisher's Summary

Four hundred years in the future, the most dangerous criminals are kept in suspended animation aboard prison ships and 'rehabilitated' in a shared virtual reality environment. But Miska Storrow, a thief and hacker with a background in black ops, has stolen one of these ships, The Hangman's Daughter, and made it her own. Controlled by explosive collars and trained in virtual reality by the electronic ghost of a dead marine sergeant, the thieves, gangsters, murderers, and worse are transformed into Miska's own private indentured army: the Bastard Legion. Are the mercenaries just for fun and profit, or does Miska have a hidden purpose connected to her covert past?

    "A non-stop explosion-fest"
    What made the experience of listening to The Hangman's Daughter the most enjoyable?

    An excellent reading of some non-stop military SF action.


    What other book might you compare The Hangman's Daughter to, and why?

    If you like Gavin's other work, Hangman's Daughter is for you!


    What does Amy Finnegan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    A variety of voices and she really brings both Miska and her dad to life.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.

    "Imaginative"
    What did you like best about The Hangman's Daughter? What did you like least?

    I think the story was interesting and left a lot for the imagination. Because i had nothing to work with other than the words i was visually trying to imagine everything that was happening in the story which i felt gave this a unique experience.<br/><br/>The story was very good however i did find myself getting lost a few times which made it a bit hard to follow. For the most part it was enjoyable to listen to.

    A reader of science fiction and other speculative musings for more than 40 years, I'm most fond of the grand themes found in space opera.

    Story
    "Action thriller sci-fi"

    I found this a bit of a struggle. The characters are a little wooden and a little too obvious. The storyline is okay-ish, but I do wish writers wouldn't sacrifice forward momentum with expositional back story.

    "Performance was 10/10 but the story was just ok"

    I liked this book. The voice actress was superb and everything was described in such a descriptive way which made the fight scenes amazing to listen to buy the story was just "ok". It was interesting and I did want to keep listening to the next chapter but at random times I would just phase out in the car sometimes and not bother rewinding the audio. Giving it a 4/5 from the voice acting for the amazing action scenes and bringing the main characters to life is such a descriptive way.

    "Good story for a first chapter"

    Good first book setting up the main story line and characters, but, to me it is a little predictable and you can see where the other may lead. I hope this is not the case and look forward to the next chapter and more characters who we will either love or hate.
    Amy Finnegan did the reading justice and was a pleasure to listen to, hopefully she read the next instalment of this series.

    Story
    "Confused"

    Well it seemed to be going along quite nicely and then she did that time slip thing, back 6 months and then I was totally confused for the entire rest of the book. This whole 'before' thing really isn't my cup of tea. Lots of unusual words and concepts too. I don't like to have to think when I'm listening to a story, I listen whilst I'm driving generally and thus was just very difficult to keep track of.

    Story
    "Awful"

    I did not like this book.
    I thought the story was a bit all over the place, I felt the narration was to soft, I felt that it had some cliches which surround a strong female character.
    Can we please have a sifi book where the strong women doesn't was to 'kiss' everyone and just wants to kick some butt.
    I stopped listening after chapter 8 as I just didn't know what was happening in the majority of the book.

    Not good.
