Nicole Poole narrates this space opera with fairy-tale elements. After renouncing her title of princess and departing to become a privateer at the edge of space, Rory Thorne and her crew unexpectedly encounter both a sentient bioweapon and an unknown, hostile xeno species. Now that the story has shifted focus, Poole has a range of new, nonhuman species who require new vocal characterizations. The Vakari, in particular, are a challenge that Poole meets handily. Former royal bodyguard Thorsdottir has a greater role as a crew member on a privateer vessel, and Poole smoothly establishes her initial discomfort and then her growing confidence. Poole once again delights as the omniscient, sarcastic, and droll narrator. K.M.P. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
