Star Born by Andre Norton (Free Audio Book)
Narrated by Mark F. Smith
This classic science fiction novel is now available in free audiobook form. Star Born tells of a future where humanity has mastered space travel and is now in the process of colonizing other parts of the known universe. However, we follow the story of one specific human colony that has been driven out of Earth by a dictatorial government and is forced to permanently strive in a planet far away from their own.
Finding a peaceful co-existence with the inhabitants of this new planet, the humans and the “mermen” were able to form a lasting and beneficial treaty. But the past is about to catch up to both races. A human named Dalgard and his blood brother Sssuri are on a routine scouting patrol when they cross paths with beings known only as “Those Others”. The “Others” are back to reclaim a long forgotten yet powerful weapon hidden in the planet and they are being helped by another race of beings from a far away planet, and that planet is Earth.
Loyalty and bonds formed will be tested as the shadows of the past creep ever closer to the present and threatening all who stepped into this cosmic ballet of death and destruction.
