Summary

Murdoc Jern's father, an interstellar gem trader, was murdered by outlaw competitors and left behind an odd ring, large enough to fit over the finger of a space suit. With his companion Eet, a strange feline mutant with phenomenal mental powers, he soon discovered that the stone in the ring was actually a Zero Stone - an alien device left behind by an ancient vanished race - and it was the key to powers beyond human imagination.

Murdoc and Eet had to solve the secret of the Zero Stone, and very quickly, because very greedy and dangerous people wanted that ring - and wouldn't hesitate at a second murder to obtain it.

Classic Sci-fi at it's finest!

Not surprising the author was awarded the Science Fiction Grand Master Award for this book, The Zero Stone and the included sequel, Uncharted Stars. A mysterious stone, born of worlds long extinct, is the key to unimaginable powers is the quest of Murdoc Jern and his mutant feline companion, Eet. They are hunted throughout space when Murdoc comes into possession of a magnificent gem. Uncharted Stars wraps up the grand finale in the most satisfying of ways.
This would be a definite 5 star rating except for the narrator's choice of a grating falsetto for Eet's character. It is jolting and pulls the reader out of the book.

Loved The Zero Stone and Uncharted Stars at 13

This book was one of my favorite space adventures by Andre Norton. So many of her books that I haven't read in years. And some of the audio books have resulted in terrible narration. However this has been a better experience than some of the other narrators.
