great book will read by Mark Nelson great job. I enjoy listening to the book that Mark Nelson narrates. He gives life to the story wonderful.

Reads like a lost Burroughs' novel

(5 Sterne)

I had never heard of this book. I was searching a list of books read by Mark Nelson and it sounded interesting. I'm glad I gave it a listen. It is very much in the style of Burroughs' John Carter of Mars and Pellucidar series. It's shorter than I expected and when I was on the final chapter I thought there was no way it would get wrapped up and I assumed I'd be searching for a second book to see it through. Nope, somehow the entire story was completed in the final minutes. Despite the rushed ending the story was intriguing and the characters were colorful. I wish the setting had been fleshed out over 2 or 3 books. The world was imaginative and the characters were just starting to grow on me when everything ended. As always, Mark Nelson is the main attraction. His reading is impeccable and he can transmogrify a mediocre story into a page turner (which is probably in his best interest since he is the one turning the pages).

Just ok.

I was kind of of disappointed, it felt like I was listening to a abridged retelling of Edgar Rice Burroughs, "John Carter Mars" series. There was nothing remotely unique in the story. Mark Nelson did an excellent job of reading as usual.

Unusual and fascinating

Starts getting a little old toward the end. Good author just not his best book.

If you enjoy the Barsoom series from Edgar Rice Burroughs, you'll enjoy this book.

Two stars for Mark Nelson. The plot is thin and moves too fast.

Very well read, good story. Has many elements that appear in more recent stories/movies.
