Narrator Maxwell Hamilton recounts the adventures of the time-traveling pirate ship INVICTUS in the year 2361. Hamilton's portrait of the ship's captain, Farway Gaius McCarthy, is complex. Teenaged Far is both adventurer and seeker, close to his crew and somehow detached. Hamilton animates the rest of the crew with similar elaboration, drawing well their reactions to frolicking and fear. He differentiates the changing tone of the story, appreciating historic details, humor, rollicking adventures, and differing amounts of tension. The crew is ill at ease when working for a ruthless black-marketer and stressed when escaping the TITANIC with plundered treasure before it sinks. World-building, historical fiction, romance--Graudin excels at merging all the genres of this audiobook with grace. S.W. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2017]
