The world is dying at the hands of a brutal empire.
Brother Dust, a changeling born amidst a sandstorm, has seen it all before. He's watched as the heavy imperial boots have crushed dozens of planets. Watched as their drills pierce the core of a world, slowly killing it while the natives are kept docile, and compliant with the gifts and pleasures the empire brings them from the stars.
He will watch no more.
Brother Dust will use his ability to mold his own body into devastating weapons, to wage a one-man war against the malevolent High Father, and the empire's diabolical machines.
The body count is rising, but the empire must be stopped.
I received an Audible code for this book via Audiobook Boom! for an honest review.
So, I really liked this book. The different alien races, the struggle of one believing they are superior, and therefore entitled to take over other worlds for their own gain. A lot of not so subtle subtext, I think haha. And it was well written, with a good flow and engaging characters.
However, the jumping back in time and back ahead got a little confusing at times, and could have been made more clear what was happening. Other than that, I have no real complaints with the story!
Now, for the narration. It just really wasn't my favorite thing. Sometimes he sounded like he was doing a Batman impression, which made me giggle, but also pulled me out of the story. Same with when he sounded like Mr Movie Announcer. He has a nice voice in general, but just not for this book.
Overall, I have to go with 3 Platypires.
