    Description

    What would you do if you found a spaceship? Would you call the government, would you pretend you never saw it, or would you keep it a secret? What would you do with it? Use it to gallivant around the galaxy, conquer Earth, get filthy rich, or try to improve life on Earth? Listen along and find out how Marc works to convert Earth into a spacefaring world capable of defending itself and of being united as it meets the other civilizations in the galaxy. He and his brother start planning their next steps, but the one they don’t know how to prepare for is the arrival of Marc’s 12-year-old daughter. She comes to spend the summer with her father. She’s very smart and extremely curious.

    Marc and his crew need to accomplish all this without tipping off the US government and before the Paraxeans come looking for their spaceship. But they have help, the ship’s AI is on their side, and she’s smart.

    Starship Sakira is the first book in the exciting new adventure series Delphi in Space.

    My lifelong fantasy

    I read a story as a teenager about a guy who stumbled upon a massively advanced alien spaceship, which, for some reason, submitted to his control. This fantasy followed me my entire life and I often dwelled on what I'd do with the technology if it happened to me. That's what the author of this book thinks through, step-by-step, and you can tell he put a lot of thought into it. This book was clearly written for me, personally, so I'm very forgiving about its major flaw, which is the narrator. She indeed speaks in a monotone, with no attempt to differentiate between characters, and it's hard to believe that she has ever read aloud before. But she's not irritating, just not good. She doesn't detract from the story, just adds nothing to it. If the story catches your fancy, her lack of talent won't ruin it for you.

    Kid’s fantasy book

    The narrator is so poor you can’t tell what character speaking half of the time! The other half you’re in shock at how poorly this was written

    great idea

    great story since I have thought about the same idea if I could help the earth with advance technology. the story goes a bit fast sometimes and the narrator was very monotone but as a AI she was spot on. looking forward to seeing the next book soon

    a fun book, terrible narration

    The narration is wooden and detracts from the story. Good narration brings a lot to the story, it can more than bring the story to life, it can provide for new understandings and new ways of looking at the story. This narration is NOT that.

    The books itself is good enough that I still was glad to listen to it. It's not a deep book, but just some lighthearted fun and I enjoyed reading it very much. i read all the other books in the series and will continue to do so.

    I do love the author's other books more than the ones in this series and would like him to go back and do more in that series.

    Juvenile science fiction

    Lots of shortcuts in the story. Things that proceeded in the storyline just don't happen that fast even with high IQs. I expected better as this is a series. Money was being thrown around like water and even for rich folk, not even close to reality. The narrator: normally I have no preference between male-female but this one just did not do a very good job with this one. It was hard to tell the characters apart. Still, If you get the series at a bargain price it will be worth it for a long drive.

    I think a Self Published author should...

    I think a Self Published author should supported and encouraged if the first attempt(s) show signs of talent. I might have enjoyed this much more in print or with a narrator that didn't sound like a computer generated voice.
    But I admire the self publishing, if i didnt make that clear. I have faith the series will get more entertaining as more resources accrue - i will be watching and rooting for you Ser Blanton.

    Wonderful Delightful Magnificent

    I am so happy and excited that there are more books in this series, already published and waiting for me to read, without having to wait. This is a fabulous story! I am so happy at the recent availability of self-publishing. So many more wonderful authors like this one are able to publish variety instead of everything being the same, from narrow publishing houses. Now I am off to start the next book. I cannot wait another moment! YAY! 😀😀😀

    Needs a narrator

    The story is an enjoyable light read for most sci-fy fans. However, the author needs to find a narrator who actually knows how to do the job. I’m usually more forgiving of narrators than this, but she sounds worse then a 10 year old reading Dr Souse. All the characters have the exact same voice. The only accent tried (and utterly failed at) was the Russian spy in book 2, all others use a Canadian/central northwestern accent... even though they are in Hawaii, Portugal, Florida, the Caribbean, and the Cook Islands. Oh, and the main characters are from Boston, one of the more distinctive accents in the US. Often, never mind differentiating between characters, there is no difference between dialogue and narration.

    Cleaver and interesting.

    It’s gratifying to listen to a book well executed and well written - especially from a self-publishing author.

    I look forward to hearing more in this storyline.

    Total waste of time

    "What would you do if you found a spaceship?"

    In general I like this kind of thought experiments, but this book is a total waste of time.

    If you are looking for a similar plot (finding a spaceship) but far better writing and narration,
    check out The second Ship by Richard Phillips, read by MacLeod Andrews.

    --

    When Marc discovers the spaceship by accident and is introduced to the AI, there are minutes of Q&A dialogue with the AI, but Mark is not asking any relevant questions like "who are you" or "why are you here"?
    His 12 year old daughter is acting like a grown up and the adults behaviour can not be described as such.
    When his daughter is kidnapped, instead of finding a way using his new found alien technology or make a sophisticated plan, Marc and his partners casual kill all the kidnappers and dispose of the bodies by feeding them to the sharks.
    This kind of violence is just unnecessary and unjustified. If the kidnappers had actually killed someone close to Mark, such behaviour could be reasonable, but that is not the case.

    An additional pain are the short sentences. It improves a little, but not much.

    "Listen along and find out how Marc works to convert Earth into a spacefaring world"
    You can listen all you want, Marc is more interested in making the easy money by lifting a ship wreck.

    Narration: Jessica Gurd sounds bored. Maybe this is related to this book, but listening to her other books I have the feeling that is just how she narrates. This is not the quality I expect from an audiobook. Her narration is not bad, but simply has no colour. Listen to an audio sample by Emily Woo Zeller for comparison.

    Stay away from Starship Sakira, it´s not worth the time. I gave it a chance to see if it got any better, but sadly that is not the case.
    I have no clue why this book has so many good reviews on Amazon.
