Listeners might expect a Jane Austen novel when they first hear Elizabeth Klett's elegant voice. But this is actually a sci-fi story, told from the point of view of 17-year-old Hazel. Hazel loves reading Austen--when she's not fighting aliens. Klett is energetic, with a hint of uncertainty, as Hazel rallies villagers to the cause. Hazel and her friends--who mostly have thinner voices to contrast with Hazel's commanding tones--are aboard the DAEDALUS, a spaceship that's been an Earth-like habitat for a roughly 900-year journey that is nearing its destination. Klett makes listeners feel Hazel's emotions--fear when aliens could be lurking or rage when she's attacking them. The audiobook immerses listeners in Hazel's world, paving the way for more to follow in this series. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2022]
