Fantasy • 16.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1995

Narrator Kyle McCarley sets a steady and even pace for this postapocalyptic tale. The oceans have dried up but left behind many archeological relics. Khat, a bioengineered humanoid, together with his human partner and others, trades in those ancient relics. When Khat is ordered to search for one relic in particular, it puts his life, and the world, at risk. McCarley's style is generally easygoing and relaxed other than in encounters and activities that illustrate a major theme of the book--the wide disparity between the rights and power of the patricians and those of the noncitizens. He engenders empathy for Khat and others of his class as they continue their struggle to make a good life for themselves. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2014]
