Narrator Nneka Okoye takes listeners on a journey with this sprawling science-fiction tale, which is both epic and intimate. Haimey Dz just wants to get by--to stay safe onboard a salvage ship with her partner, Connla, and their sarcastic AI, Singer. But her visit to a potentially valuable wreck kicks off a galaxy-spanning adventure involving alien parasites, space pirates, and interstellar politics. Okoye gives a nuanced portrayal of Haimey, drawing out her self-assurance when she's in her comfort zone and her genuine terror when she's forced out of it. Okoye paces the narrative world-building expertly, keeping the listener engaged with a complicated plot and unfamiliar vocabulary. N.M. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2019]
