MERU The Alloy Era, Book 1

by | Read by Deepa Samuel

Science Fiction • 17.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

With the printed novel having been nominated for both Hugo and Nebula Awards, Deepa Samuel has a high bar to reach as narrator of this audiobook, and she fills it. Samuel's youthful timbre and clear pronunciation help to bring this complex space opera to life. In a world in which humans are denigrated and "alloys," or artificially created people, are running the universe, Jayanthi, is a fully human child adopted by alloy parents. She pairs up with an alloy pilot, Vaha, to work toward giving humanity a better place in the universe on the newly discovered Earth-like planet of Meru. Samuel's character voices clearly delineate the different species and characters, allowing the listener to become immersed in the story's world-building.
