Narrator Reba Buhr portrays Alyssa Farshot, a brash, young pilot seeking a life of adventure. The death of her uncle, the emperor, initiates the Crownchase, a competition for his seat that will span the galaxy and involve many prime families. Buhr's delivery pulls listeners into the story's vivid atmosphere as Alyssa defends her family's legacy against her wishes. Buhr's pacing reflects the treacherous challenges, and her tone alludes to sinister machinations and the larger consequences of the Crownchase. Buhr's gruff, spirited characterizations are well matched to Alyssa and the rest of the cast, including the rebellious engineer, Hell Monkey, and her brilliant fellow competitor, Natalia. The first book in a duo, this rousing space tourney will leave listeners eager for more. K.S.B. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2021]
