Legacy

(4.1 stars; 25 reviews)

Ancient living machines that after millennia of stillness suddenly begin to move under their own power, for reasons that remain a mystery to men. Holati Tate discovered them—then disappeared. Trigger Argee was his closest associate—she means to find him. She's brilliant, beautiful, and skilled in every known martial art. She's worth plenty—dead or alive—to more than one faction in this obscure battle. And she's beginning to have a chilling notion that the long-vanished Masters of the Old Galaxy were wise when they exiled the plasmoids to the most distant and isolated world they knew.... (Summary from book jacket) Originally published in 1962 as "A Tale of Two Clocks". (addition by km) (7 hr 50 min)

Interesting, if complicated story


(5 stars)

Trigger is a government agent assigned to work on the Plasmoid project. Plasmoids are a new alien life form that don't seem to do much, but everyone wants them. Good guys, bad guys, other governments, they all want plasmoids and are willing to steal, kidnap, or kill to get them. Trigger thinks the plasmoids are gross, but one of the large ones decides he likes her, much to her dismay. She is asked to become its keeper to protect it from those who would try to steal it. She agrees, but then strange things start happening... This is a VERY busy story, a lot happens and you have to pay quite close attention to get it all. It is, however, a very interesting story, well-read, and worth the effort. Enjoy! UPDATE - I listened to this a second time and it is really a great story for sci-fi fans. Give it a whirl, you won't be disappointed.

Just OK

Not quite sure I fully followed this one, but it was okay.
