Description

A science fiction thriller by the author of Night Watch, the hit novel that inspired two major motion pictures.

Five months after the horrific accident that left him near death and worried that he'd never fly again, master-pilot Alex Romanov lands a new job: captaining the sleek passenger vessel Mirror. Alex is a spesh - a human who has been genetically modified to perform particular tasks. As a captain and pilot, Alex has a genetic imperative to care for passengers and crew - no matter what the cost.

His first mission aboard Mirror is to ferry two representatives of the alien race Zzygou on a tour of human worlds. His task will not be an easy one, for aboard the craft are several speshes who have reason to hate the Others. Dark pasts, deadly secrets, and a stolen gel-crystal worth more than Alex's entire ship combine to challenge him at every turn. And as the tension escalates, it becomes apparent that greater forces are at work to bring the captain's world crashing down.

Child porn? Seriously. Unacceptable.

I got this audiobook because it was recommended to me on a list I found of good sci-fi stories. I got into the second chapter, somewhat bothered by then about some odd little misogynistic phrases and by the authors focus on the young girl character’s body as an erotic object. But when a sex scene between a 30-year-old man and a 14-year-old girl got underway, I had to stop this audiobook and delete it from my library. There’s no way that’s good storytelling. No defense for it.Regardless of the subject. It’s just child porn.

Good story, poorly performed

I enjoyed this story- not as philosophical or thought provoking as the Night Watch series but certainly entertaining. Scott Aiello’s performance took away from the experience with his juvenile alien voices and inability to keep the characters matched to the correct voices. I recommend avoiding his work.
