Summary

When accusations of piracy and mass murder are laid against his homeworld, Damien Montgomery is sent to resolve the crisis. As counteraccusations fly and an old flame reenters his life, the newest Hand of the Mage-King of Mars finds himself in the midst of a bloody interstellar shadow war. With the death toll mounting, Damien must decide whether he should trust the world he came from - or the world that asked for his help. The wrong choice will trigger a civil war that could shatter human civilization. No pressure.

loved it

Great sci-fi with a twist of magic. The book has loads of pace while it twists and turns all the way to the end. Original in so many ways but not so far out in left field as to leave the reader behind. If you are looking for a good sci-fi book that's got loads of action without being pretentious, read this and the others in the series. Great fun :)

A big thank you to the author for bringing something new to the table, a joy to read !

Alright

the overriding concepts and universe for the series is good, but the mc has fell init a role of stating platitudes about his power and etc that he doesn't live upto. The thinking and actions of some char caters don't really align and as a character he is passive not proactive which can be further annoying. After book 2 i could see where the plot was going and the conspiracy which is unfailing obvious but most seem to never consider. Also slightly frustrating habit of repeating info that is well known , in the same manner as before to you prior to a simple comment being made. Still decent enough to be worth getting.

Obvious BUT Intense! When's the next book?

The bad guys were obvious! The solution however was not. I'm looking forward to book 4!

Worthy but a bit repetitive

I've been waiting for many months and was thrilled when I saw it finally show up in Audible.com. I wasn't disappointed and generally enjoyed the book but I was hoping for something less predictable. There was the usual encounters with other mages challenging Damien's abilities and authority and the subsequent near death encounters along with the political intrigue along the way but most of the characters, including Damien, seemed less interesting than in the previous books. Even the main antagonist was simple to determine very early on.

With that said, the writing was still very fluid and the narration still well recited (except for a nit with Damien sounding demanding and slightly arrogant even when he intended his declarations are meant to sound soft.)

A solid adventure and mystery

I wish audible gave us more granularity than only 5 stars. I liked Voice of Mars more than the 4 star rating I gave the prior Hand of Mars, but still don't feel like it deserves to be in the same 5 star category as my most favorite books. The ongoing mystery of who is behind the ship attacks holds together the overall story between the action better than the more uneven pacing of the prior book. The intensity is down a bit here, but is much more consistent.

The only criticism I have is that nothing truly great stands out. This is just a good enjoyable listen and well worth your credit.

A little let down but still got the potential!

Story line was drawn too long and not enough of the MAGIC MAGE creativity ... next in line needs new magic and special gifts ...

Great space opera.

Easy to listen to and compelling times. Enjoyed the performance of Mr Kafer . Looking forward to the next in the series.
