Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jennifer Hale

Science Fiction • 32.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Jennifer Hale's outstanding performance brings this story of alien invasion to life. Kira Navárez is a quiet, unassuming xenobiologist working on the fringes of human-settled space. When she comes in contact with unknown organic matter, a biosuit called "Soft Blade," it changes her world forever. She discovers she must rally her courage to save the universe from destruction. Hale's portrayal of Kira is mellow and contemplative, reflecting a person who spends most of her time alone in the quiet reaches of space. Hale's range of differentiation is masterly as she animates all the quirky characters Kira meets. From the rough, snarky slang of an ex-military woman to the half-mad musings of a human "ship mind," every unique voice enhances the listening experience. N.H.
