Amy M. rates the book 4 out of 5 stars, and says:
“Good story line and interesting characters make this an enjoyable read. Speaks strongly on human nature, which transcends time and technology. Looking forward to your next book.”

Cell LinkIt is the twenty-fourth century. Humanity has spread out among the stars thanks to a twenty-second century power system.

Lieutenant Commander Alexandria Novastra finds herself in possession of a legendary device that has the potential to destroy civilization. It is then she learns the device is addictive. She cannot turn this device over to her commanders. Military minds and all-consuming destructive powers do not make a good match. She reluctantly accepts the need to drop out of the system to protect the device and humanity. To do that, she enlists the aid of a crafty ex-con.

Chris Ashby says: “I really enjoyed it! It was a good story that was thought provoking and entertaining, interwoven into a very interesting look at the future. Well done!”

Mark S. says: “I don’t listen to many audiobooks so I don’t have a lot of comparison to go by. However, the other experiences I had were very static next to this one. It includes all kinds of bells and whistles: music, sound effects, and (best of all) a variety of character voices. Though my audiobook experiences have been minimal, I’d say this touches on all the fronts an audiobook should touch on for me. And, hopefully, for you, too.

In one of the early chapters, there is a whole segment that describes reentry into a planet’s atmosphere.* There are plenty of great segments in the book, but that was one of the first to make an impression on me (the first of many).

While reading this, I was very impressed by the detail in it. The characters and the setting are developed in the most exciting and complete ways, ways that you almost exclusively see in science fiction. The author demonstrates their strong comprehension of the genre they were writing in. If you enjoy Philip K. Dick, William Gibson, Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein, then I suspect you will find “On a Sphere’s Edge” thoroughly enjoyable!”
