A thousand years ago, an alien invasion set humanity back to the Iron Age. Slowly, we recovered, colonizing the Solar System in peace. And discovered that an unknown force is stopping us from exploring any farther. But before the cause can be discovered, a slow-burning conspiracy threatens to explode into System-wide war. With enemies at home and in the darkness beyond, a team of unlikely heroes-a janitor, a mercenary, an asteroid miner, and a pirate-are the only ones who can avert a second apocalypse. This set includes the first three books of the newly-finished REBEL STARS series.

I really enjoyed a universe where our space-settling kin don't start out with inertial dampeners and laser technology, and where those advanced technologies that do exist may have come from our enemies.
As always, however, Robertson's strength is in creating relatable characters, no matter how far the setting is removed from our reality. I'm looking forward to the next installment.
The story it self is entertaining with characters who have interesting yet futuristic personalities. But whenever the narrator reads a characters line it sounds like he's wispering what they are saying. Maybe it's because he can't do higher pitched voices but it does make it seem like everyone is talking in a library. Still it's good enough for me to want to finish the series.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ray Chase?
Any additional comments?
Really don't understand the choices Chase (or his director) made. Narration itself is fine, but the character voices are so affected and oddly intoned, it makes things just plain weird.
loved the narrator's performance he lent real depth to the characters
thi should become a classic in our genre as it explores key issues of modern life and a supposed life in the greater solar system. there is enough science in it to get your "what if" glands pumping and just the right blend of plot twust and turns to keep it interesting. well worth it
the voice actor is pretty monotonous compared to other books by Robertson, but still pretty compelling. not sure if I'll listen to it again or not, the story is a little scattered (either that or the voice actor was droll enough to make me zone out) but I have to say, it sounds like the voice put effort into it. albeit, maybe TOO much effort? I'm still conflicted.
Hard to tell if all of the characters are emotionless robots or not with the dull narrator
