Description

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.

fn 2187.

a lost ship in the book. it is a name that sticks out from the naming scheme of the ships in the fleet to which it belongs. Easter egg much?

like the story and really like the narrator pretty much all the books he has narrated that I've heard are worth the time to listen to.

Excellent.. but that Narrator..

This third book in a most-enjoyable series is much improved over the first two offerings. Glynn Stewart incorporates much more character development than in the previous efforts.. which were fun but strikingly superficial. This one has a plot that includes political manipulation/diplomacy, secretive treason, interstellar conflict/war mongering, and crises of allegiance.. while still delivering elements of an action-filled plot (the balance between Space Opera world-building and Saturday Morning Serial adventure is better approximated in this novel). It works.
[Note: This book, while great, has some problems: Stewart tries introducing strong Mystery elements (although he's not very good at it); and inexplicably tries his hand at a Rekindled Romance plotline (again largely unsuccessfully). Finally, the dénouement is unnecessary and far too long - the novel essentially ends at Chapter 35 but goes on for another 75 minutes].
Still, the end result is a novel that's the best in the series so far - it's eminently satisfying.

Unfortunately, Jeffrey Kafer gives a terrible reading performance. His reading voice is clear and easy to listen to.. but volume modulation is a genuine issue: Kafer delivers conversational dialogue at twice the volume of the rest of the text - which he rushes ("WHY DID YOU DO THAT?"..damienasked.." THE MAGE-KING WILL NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IT"..heintimated.."WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?"..sheretorted.."THE ATTACKS"..herbodyguardinterjected..)
It's laughable when you notice it - but I had to point it out. Sorry about that.
Furthermore, Kafer's pacing is terrible again (I had to increase the playback speed to 1.25X to get a tolerable rate).
And finally, he delivers the text in this book with far too much seriousness - like his kids' lives depend on every word (in a *SciFi* story).

Altogether, despite disappointing narration (you may have noticed that I'm somewhat nitpicky), 'Voice of Mars' is an extremely entertaining offering that rates 8/10 stars. On to Book 4..
