Summary

Titan's war for freedom rages in the shadows. But to claim it, they'll need a leader.

Kale Drayton knows his place. As a Ringer born on Titan, he's used to keeping his head down and his mouth shut--no matter how much the Earthers abuse him or his own kind berate him. So, when he's caught stealing from a wealthy merchant, he's lucky to be sentenced to low-paying maintenance work on a gas-harvesting ship instead of life in a cell... or worse.

But when his mother is quarantined, Kale finds himself backed into a corner. To pay for her medicine, he needs money--the kind of money he'll never make sweeping floors and cleaning ships. When he receives a mysterious offer asking him to do a simple job in exchange for his mother's treatment, Kale takes a chance once more. All he must do is upload a program onto his employer's ship and all of his problems will disappear.

What starts as a straightforward smuggling gig soon reveals its shattering repercussions. The people who hired Kale are more dangerous than he suspected -and he's more important to them than he ever could have imagined.

Grab the exciting sequel to Titanborn, which will transport you to the other side of the conflict on Titan, and the Ringers' fight for independence.

Worth every penny and much much more!

When I was a soldier I tried to put my feet in my enemy’s shoes to understand them and I realized that they thought that we are the bad guys because that’s what they’ve been taught , exactly what we have been told and believed.
What I’m trying to say is that there are two sides to the same coin and the Author Rhett C. Bruno understand it enough to show us with this beautiful series how true it is, he also understand that wars are also about power, control and money.
Bruno have translated all this beautifully written into this amazing series.
Excellent Science-fiction beautifully written, The characters are so real that you just can’t connect or understand them all, that’s not easily done but Bruno have and perfectly so.
Once again one of the best if not the best R.C. Bray have narrated this audiobook perfectly and as usual got it spot on with each character!

And now comes the suffering part of waiting for the continuation ( still worth the wait ).

Absolutely full heartedly without a doubt recommended for all.
Guaranteed.

Updated Story and Great Audio

Yet another cool story from the titan universe, in this politics play a big part as we see just why the events of Book 1 unfolded. With another new set of characters to meet and some more history of Malcolm's to come across this sets the grit in even deeper , a great listen and one I'm more than happy to reccommend. Rc Bray suits this story and his voice works very well especially after the initial audio. Cant wait for books 3 and 4 to come out if only so I can then have some great looking audio covers and even more time to listen and enjoy.

Ice to Ashes

Titan's Son, formerly titled Ice to Ashes, does not follow on from where Titanborn finished. instead, it overlaps with, and interweaves into, that also excellent story providing depth and greater understanding by, in effect, giving the 'other side'..A young man, a Ringer and former thief, desperate for cash to provide good quarantine conditions for his sick mother, is recruited mysteriously to take a package aboard an old gas harvester ship on which he had worked for the previous two years. Who had requested this he didn't know, nor could he tell what was in the package or why he was to deliver it. But he needed the credits desperately ...

Beautifully written, this book is a joy, exciting, with good characterisations of people to care about. Rhett Bruno has become one of my favourite authors on the strength of this book alone. Highly recommended as, too, is the also stand alone companion story, Titanborn.
New edition, New name, New format: audiobook.
Titan's Son, is still as thrilling and vibrantly exciting as the first time I read it many months ago. In fact, it's even better with the excellent narration of R.C.Bray breathing even more life (if that is possible) into the already well developed characters with individual voicing for each. He also reads the story to perfection, his gentle voice following the tensions of the text and the excitements as they occur without taking anything away from the beauty of Rhett C.Bruno's writing. A perfect pairing of Author and narrator.

This time, I have read the first two books of the trilogy in the order given ( this being book two) but it still remains the same as before - read book one, Titanborn, first, or this one. doesn't matter. Both illuminate the other and yet stand completely apart. But whichever order you choose, if you have any fondness for science fiction, or strong characters in an uncomfortable world emotionally stretched almost to the limit, or excitement, thrills, adventure, and imaginative writing, read them.
Just read them.

This series keeps getting better!

This is book 2 in the Children of Titan series. Book 1 was outstanding, and this one is much better. I highly recommend listening to book one first. Kale Drayton's roll in this story is not what I expected at all after book one. With the responsibility he takes on, you forget how young he really is. This dystopian world takes place on Saturn's moon, Titan long after most of humanity was wiped out on Earth by a meteor.
Great narration by R.C. Bray! He always delivers a flawless narration with many different character voices and accents.
Can't wait for book 3!

Better than the first one

This second book in the Titanborn series is better than the first one. The story give us a different perspective from the story of book one with complex characters and deep worldbuilding. I've already pre-ordered the next one on Audible.

Great addition to the series

This is my third in the series. Enjoyed this one as well. Two of the books are from different perspectives which was different from other series that I have listened to. R C Bray is the best narrator ever. He makes action come alive. He also makes each character with a voice that is perfect for them.

Not really my cup of tea, but we'll written!

Not really my cup of tea, but we'll written! I like how the second book is from an entirely different perspective. I was bored due to the characters life but kept listening for the larger story plot.

Excellent

This is an excellent continuation from the other side of story! The “Ringer” side. The way both are tied into each other; I look forward to many more continued books!

Awesome narration and story!

One of my favorite books I've listened to in the past year. This book would stack up as a stand alone, but I'm thrilled this is a series! Bruno has done a great job with character development, back stories, and immersing the reader into the surroundings. With RC Bray at the helm, you cant go wrong with this series.
