Space salvage is no occupation for a proper 15-year-old girl. But Fura Ness, as demurely voiced by narrator Clare Corbett, is no ordinary teen. What starts as a lark and a way to financially aid their family ends up a dangerous venture for Fura and her older sister, Adrana. An innocent at first, Fura grows tougher as she pursues the villainous Bosa Sennon, who kidnaps Adrana. Thanks to Corbett's vocal choices, listeners can hear this hardening in Fura. The chameleonlike Corbett also effectively voices Fura's many diverse crewmates--from burly men to hardscrabble women--all seeking "baubles," planetoids that hold priceless relics from past civilizations. The enjoyable result is a layered star-spanning odyssey filled with drama, adventure, and, yes, revenge. D.E.M. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2017]
