- By: John Scalzi

"I'm Zoe Boutin Perry: A colonist stranded on a deadly pioneer world. Holy icon to a race of aliens. A player in a interstellar chess match to save humanity. Seventeen years old. Everyone on Earth knows the tale I am part of. But you don't know my tale: I'm going to tell it to you now, the only way I know how: not straight but true, the whole thing, to try make you feel what I felt: the joy and terror and uncertainty, panic and wonder, despair and hope."

I have really enjoyed this series and while Tavia Gilbert is a favourite narrator I found listening to this irritating.
This is an established series with an excellent narrator and to have Ms Gilbert come in and change the pronunciation of names and species, when having a listen to previous work would have kept things consistent without taking away from her mostly excellent performance, really detracted from my enjoyment of this performance.
That said while not adding a lot to the series this was an enjoyable reunion with old friends.
