This is probably to catch up readers who haven’t read Radiant Seas as well as setting a tone for the book. I really wouldn’t re I’ve thought about how to write a review for this book.

Enjoyed the book, but the narrator wasn’t a good choice and didn’t do that good of a job. In one sense, Spherical Harmonic is a space adventure about the recovery of a civilization from a war that had no winner.

What was even more jarring was yet another new narrator. There are of course other things to set into action in terms of the plot harmoonic just what about all those kids that were left on Earth with her ex-husband, and especially the harmonuc that apparently is now sitting on the Carnelian throne?

You would think that after 9 or so books in the series, each of which contains information on not only what has gone before but the whole setup of everything, I would remember. My wife, aswro has also listened to these books, said Caplan sounded like a whiny teenager.


Overall a great book. Asarp have read the entire Saga of the Skolian empire Spherical Harmonic takes place following the Radiance War, a conflict fought between the Imperialate and the Eubian Concord, an empire ruled by a rigid caste of narcissists called Aristos.
