Captain Kathryn Janeway is my all time favourite Captain from Star Trek and this book was everything I wanted and more. Plenty of backstory and more detail about the lives of the Crew of Voyager after Endgame.

And of course to have Kate Mulgrew herself narrate this book is just the greatest. She is such a terrific narrator, and I was so glad to hear her Janeway voice once again.

I like listening to multiple perspectives, even though two of the narrators stories are so close together the story kind of repeats itself a bit. I was engrossed so much to know what happened to these people and how they got to this point.

I love that it takes place in Northern Ontario, even though it takes place in the 40s, it's still so soothing to hear about places I know and terms only Canadians know about.

All three narrators were terrific. Only gripe about this book is the simplicity of the abrupt ending.

PLEASE READ THESE BOOKS!!!

I liked this even better than book 1. Jared is going through some really dark and difficult things, but his humour and sarcasm help make it easier for you to read about it. I love this kid, you can't help but root for him.

I have been waiting for this book since I picked up Book 1 how many years ago!? So worth the wait! This book is definitely the darkest of the three, but so satisfying in the conclusion. It was still full of snark and humour and Jared and his mother continued to be my favourite relationship to read about.

This book was interesting to because we got more perspectives to read about other than Jared's.

One thing that did kind of throw me off was there was a new narrator for book 3. Not sure why they changed it up and I was disappointed at first because I thought Jason Ryll was perfect as the voice of Jared, but when I got over that the current narrator was pretty good as well.

I love this book so much. I've read it three times now, this being the first on Audio. I keep coming back to it because I just love Jared. He might be a messed up kid doing things that are bad for him, but all his poor decisions come from a place of love and loyalty and I love reading characters like that.

Everytime I read this I pick up on something new that I hadn't seen before, and I love the Mythology from this Indigenous author. Please read this book.

Fun and funny!

This was a really inspiring read for someone who wants to start running. This was full of humour and determination and even got emotional at some parts. Great narrator too!

I listened to this whilst driving in a snowy blizzard. I can't think of a more perfect setting to listen to this beautiful classic. Loved the Narrator, although his French Canadian accent needs work!

It has been over 10 years since I read this series and I forgot about a lot of what happened. It was almost like reading it for the first time all over again. Even though each book was read by a different narrator, they all did a fabulous job, and I had no complaints about anyone's performance.

This purchase was a no brainer, such a good deal all seven books read by some fantastic people.

Dear Audible: have Patrick Stewart narrate more books!!!

These are really short mysteries, nothing much to deduce or figure out since the suspects are usually very few and are solved pretty quickly. It was very relaxing to listen to this while trying to navigate a stressful drive in the snow! I didn't have to pay too close attention and still got into the story.

Audible, I hope you get Nathaniel Parker to narrate more books! He's amazing and does so many brilliant voices all different and distinct!

I am not really that much of a Python fan. The first time I ever saw Eric Idle was in the movie Caspar! It was my favourite movie as a kid. But I still really enjoyed listening to his life story and his ever optimistic views on terrible things. I think there is something for everyone here to get from this book. Very glad I bought it.
