Summary

A young girl dreams of seeing the stars and meeting aliens. Her chance comes in the form of a project offering a college education, a commission in the SAS Fleet, and a partnership with an alien. She successfully qualifies and wins one of the coveted 10 positions. Of Course everything comes with a price - the alien is a parasite that inhabits the body and mind, and is there for life. Is it a dream or nightmare come true? Maybe both?

Entertaining listen

This book being the first in the series has grabbed my interest and I do hope that audible will continue to make available the rest of the series as I am keen to follow the exploits of Nadia and her Riss symbiot on further adventures finding out the interaction between them and how it developers. This is a different type of scyfy story to which I am totally hooked much more please and soonest.

Reading the book was great - listening was better

The narration adds a lot of interpretation to the book - the narrator is perfect displaying Nadia and her attitude, plus Thalia too.

The book itself is great - it has a great idea, the plot is good, the small side stories add to Nadia's character.

The whole series is a bit sad, seeing what bigotry can do to a society, but inspiring in what the Riss can achieve with Nadia as Leader.

Overall it's a fun book, and I couldn't' stop listening.

Enjoyable

I've found this book to be a really enjoyable story, I think that the main character is very endearing which will make the listener look forward to the next book. All in all well worth the credit.

The Riss Gamble is an adventure in Alien Relations

Unlike too many books today this one doesn't rely on kinky sex for sales.
