From AudioFile:

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

Review:

The Planet Pirates traces the careers of two remarkable women. Sassinak escaped from slavery to freedom, and then used that freedom to fight the evil that had wrecked her world, first as a cadet, later as a captain, and finally as an Admiral of the Fleet. Lunzie, one of the galaxy's greatest healers, is Sassinak's great grandmother--but in actual years she is her junior; Lunzie spent nearly a century in coldsleep waiting for rescue when her ship was destroyed. Imagine their mutual surprise when Sassinak rescued her. How together Sassinak and Lunzie save first a world, and then a confederation of worlds--and almost in passing establish amity between the genetically engineered Heavy Worlders and normal reality--is the story of The Planet Pirates.

Never in our experience has a new series met with such solid success as our national bestsellers, The Planet Pirates: Sassinak, The Death of Sleep, and Generation Warriors. Now at last we are able to offer all 500,000 words of The Planet Pirates in a single trade edition. -- Baen Publishing Enterprises
