Description

On the planet Hathor, a powerful group called the Guardians serves as the security force for Novacorp, the corporation that runs Hathor with its ruthless monopoly. Nadira, as one of the most powerful Guardians, is expected to use her intuition and telekinetic powers to keep the capital city safe from thieves and intruders.

Jonathan Keel, son of a mine CEO on the nearby planet, Astarte, is wealthy, privileged and used to getting what he wants. When his father goes missing after a robbery and explosion at the mine, he defies the authorities and heads to Hathor to search for him and for the robbers.

Security is on high alert, and Nadira is charged with protecting Jon. She rescues him from a vicious attack and discovers that the Guardians have another agenda that has nothing to do with solving the crime.

Jonathan finds evidence of his father's possible involvement while his attraction to Nadira forces her to confront all she has known about being a Guardian, especially the rule to put duty before her personal feelings.

Struggling with their growing desires, and chased by company security, Jon and Nadira flee the city. But solving the crime leads them to endure betrayals from the people closest to them, as secrets are revealed that not only link their pasts but also threaten to destroy Jon's family and separate him from Nadira forever.

Guardian

I received this audio at no charge from the author/narrator in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
This story was unique and different than most stories I've listened to. It reminds me of the future like the TV show Continuum, without the time travel and romance. This is also the first story that I've heard written by author Deborah A. Bailey and I was pleased with the journey into the world Deborah has created. I'm not big on writing a huge review because I think it gives too much away for others. I can only tell you it's worth the listen, worth that credit, and I highly recommend you give it a listen. I really enjoyed Jonathan, he's cocky, arrogant, but a descent man all the same. Nadira, well I wasn't so sure about her at first but she grew on me. I was pleased at the changes she made in her life throughout the story. The story has a great storyline, plot, filled with mystery, action, and twists and turns along the way.
Narrator, Kristin James did a wonderful job in her performance. I was able to feel all the emotions as it rolled from her mouth. She makes each and every character come to life as if she is all those characters. She breathed life into this story and brought this story to life. I give this story an overall 5 star rating! I'm looking forward to listening to the next book Burn.

Interesting world and lore building. Good story.

Would you listen to Hathor Legacy: Outcast again? Why?
I liked the world building enough to one day want to revisit the story again.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hathor Legacy: Outcast?
I think toward the end when Nadira realizes she's been lied to all her life and that she could have had a life with her mother.

What does Kristin James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I usually like men to do the various voices (Unless its Tavia Gilbert) but Kristin did a really good job with both men and women voices. I was able to relax and listen to the book without constantly being annoyed this was a lady reading the male parts.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Once I hit the half way mark, I had a harder time putting it down.

Any additional comments?
I would like to know why only the first families that settled in the North developed those abilities. What happened to Nadira's mother? I see I will have to wait for book two to find out. It was a good scifi romance without many love scenes. This is a plus for me because I get tired of them.

Most Fantasy, small Romance! What a book!

WHAT a nice surprise! Hathor Legacy: Outcast is my first Deborah A. Bailey and what a book! I am so happy! Almost no romance, and a lot of fantasy! I mean there is a HOT scene in the book, but not as much i was fearing! "WOSH" and 5 hrs and 55 mins is gone, and i sit there with the biggest smile i had in a wile! So fun! This is a well-written novel and i like that! The action-packed ending kept you on your toes, and i almost did not want to sit down again! Just one book i will enjoy listening to again, and again, and again!

And what about the FANTASTIC Kristin James? She does different voice acting and persons voices for the characters. That is what it makes it so easy to get a personal feel for the characters and who's who while listening. I am going to look for her name on Audible, because she is maybe in my top 3 of all time narrators!

Romance laced story with action and solid plot

What made the experience of listening to Hathor Legacy: Outcast the most enjoyable?

I truly enjoyed the voice acting. Kristin has brought the characters to life for me. I love the way she sounds as she's acting the parts and talking to me with such emotion. I feel she's taken on the part of the characters full tilt and draws me into the world the characters live in and the actions happening. She does different voice tones and persona's in the voice for the characters which makes it easy to get a personal feel for the characters and who's who while listening.

And the characters have a growing tension that builds with the events they live through and the closeness of each other.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hathor Legacy: Outcast?

Most memorable is when the characters finally quite fighting themselves on the inside. When the two main characters are staying at a house and they finally let their inner desires through.

Which scene was your favorite?

There is a fight scene where we see the effects of Nardia's powers. We learn that her ability is powerful, but we don't know how powerful until she's in full action. And yet there is hints that this is more than she knew of, and maybe more to come?

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There are a few moments in the story that I expected the characters to lie or decline in telling of information. But they don't. I loved that the characters realized they are to trust each other and do. This grows their relationship and shows they are smart in who to trust. You have to trust someone, so pick who's been trying to help you over all.

Any additional comments?

Nadira is the strong one here. The story feels as a flip of roles, in sorts. Nadira is the one on the hunt for the bad guys and protecting. Jonathan is kind of a pretty face. lol. I like this flip. Jonathan starts to fall into the dangerous field of the innocent person caught in the middle of the events happening around him. Jonathan does come to prove himself to be more than a pretty boy. I've come to enjoy reading/hearing Jonathan in the story. He grows greatly.

This book has a romance in it. But the best thing, there is a great deal of story here. This story is not only romance. There is a who story that Nadira and Jonathan work their way through and in doing so the romance blossoms. There is a steamy scene but not as many scenes as I had thought I'd get. Which is right in line for me.

I Liked this....

It took me a little while to get into this book. I think I re-started 4 or 5 times. I thought maybe I just wasn't listening. But after a little while I was more able to get more into it. And after finishing the book, I would like to hear more in this series. I didn't love the narration. I really think that is why I had such a difficult time starting it. I mean it wasn't bad, just not my favorite.

This book was given to me at my request(Thanx!). I am providing a voluntary and honest review.

Just okay

Jonathan is the son of a wealth CEO. When his father goes missing he goes to the planet Hathor to try to locate information.The guardian group assigns Nadira to keep him safe. The world building the author creates are both original and complex. Unfortunately Jonathan is not. He reads like a teenager not a 30 year old man. Nadira deserves better.

3.25★'s

The storyline was interesting. However, the sex was just thrown in. It had no basis in regards to the story. I'm quite disgusted with that fact. I love and good romance but this was a Sci-fi book with sex added as if to get the attention of Romance readers. It utterly failed. Good thing, I'm a Sci-Fi fan!

On top of that, he's not the brightest bulb in the box & we know exactly what he's being lead around by. Tsk, I really hate slamming on a character but geez he would argue with a signpost! She on the other hand has plenty of growing up to do but has great potential. :-)

As for world building and scene descriptions, they were okay, however, I got lost along the beach. The ending was satisfying and leds well into the next book.

I listened to this via Audible as I'm near blind. I specifically checked to see if it was the same narrator. Honestly, if it weren't, I'd certainly pick up book 2! There are questions I'd like answered. :-) But alas, the narrator totally ruined that possibility. >.<

My star ratings include these 5 elements:
1★ story line
.5★ engaging characters
.75★ use of world building/descriptions
1★ the ending
0★ narration or editing

→This narrator needs to stick to straight up narration. Some people shouldn't be allowed to attempt reading, including very brief dialoging, as a man. It was truly horrendous & distracting from the story.
→She read sooo slooowly, be prepared to bump the speed up to 1.50x to listen at a normal pace
→I'll not read any other book by this narrator!

Excellent science fiction mystery

An exciting who done it in the sci fi genre. This will keep you guessing as to who all is involved, and why, right up until the end.
Plenty of excitement, intrigue, and a dash of romance. I received a free copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest review.
