Science fiction fans will love Towers's dramatic presentation of these three stories, part of the Planet Pirates series. Towers's voice is resonant and clear, giving life to all the alien creatures involved. The listener is transported to a slavers' space craft, into cryogenic stasis and into the race to save the galaxy. McCaffrey and her co-authors, Elizabeth Moon and Jody Lynn Nye, develop their characters and involve the listener quickly and effectively. Outstanding characterizations and reading add up to a unique listening experience. S.C.A. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I especially liked Lunzie's storyline. She is cryogenically frozen and has to cope with re-learning how to exist in society. Consider the learning curve someone from the 1950's would have if they woke today. And that is only a 50 year jump. She was out for almost 100!
The plot in this and Dinosaur Planet overlap, but I had some trouble with the continuity between the two. I liked this version better. (Probably because I read it first.)
I recommend this to fans of Elizabeth Moon, David Weber and Lois McMaster Bujold. The science fiction enhances the story, rather than replacing it. Jody Lynn Nye can be a little too fantasy oriented in her science fiction (I'm thinking flying talking frogs(?) from one of the Ship Who Sang books), but she is much more serious and does a very good job on this one.
