Science Fiction • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1991

Star Svensdotter is close to achieving the commissioning of Ellfive, which will give the space colony the right to govern itself and some level of independence from Earth. Marguerite Gavin creates a persona for Archie, the artificial intelligence that keeps the habitat running smoothly and safely, and conveys his growing (but friendly) attitude as he evolves into a sentient being. She expresses the increasing warmth that members of Star’s inner circle feel for each other and their steely determination to protect their home when it's threatened on all sides. The pace is quick, and Gavin portrays Star as commanding yet endearing. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2012]
