    1 thought on “The Golden One

    1. Epic trilogy. Strong female lead with no romantic interest. Strong female villain too. Fascinating alien cultures. Classic storyline. Also a good buddy story. Themes of slavery, servitude, gladiatorial games, violence, friendship, betrayal, escape, exodus, survival, mad science experiments, and a society fallen into decadence.

    2. I never realize what a scifi lover I am until I start reading a good one. I liked this book very much. After I finished it I went looking for book 2 of the series.In a universe very different from ours, races struggle for justice and freedom. It may sound like many others but it is quite unique from others I've read.

    3. This book is amazing to me, it teaches courage and honor and the simplicity of young life. while on the other end of the spectrum it teaches how frail life can be but how courages one can be. My second favorite series

    4. This was one of those audiobooks that I picked up just because it was real different than what I usually read and because I love the Star Wars movies. Very pleasantly surprised and a fun listen. I wasn't sure about it at first as it plays off more like a radio show. But I got into the characters and now I want to find out what happens to the Aaroun (a cat like creature) called Ampris. Note: This was a book that I received from a member at Bookcrossing

    5. This still stands as one of the best audiobooks I've ever listened to - though I didn't listen to it this time (mostly because it's impossible to get ahold of). The beginning of the first book in this trilogy takes its time getting started, but the characters, world, and story were as amazing as I remembered from childhood, and that's not something that's held true of every beloved book I've re-read in my adult years.I can say with confidence that Ampris is one of my favorite science fiction pro [...]

    6. I originally purchased this as an audio book to share with my husband, who doesn't like to read. The audio production was excellent, with a full cast. So why do I have the paperback? Simple, the publisher issued volumes 1 and 2 in audio, but never released volume 3! I have a few colorful words to say about that, but will stick the reviewing the novel. The story was so good I had to buy the paperbacks to get the conclusion. This is a wonderful space opera. All the races/peoples in the trilogy are [...]

    7. I love this whole series. I read it back when it first came out in '98 and it pulled me in. I have to say, as much as I love Ampris and the relationship between her and Elrabin, my favorite parts to read were about Israi and the watching the Viis empire slowly crumbling around them. The Golden One is the start of Ampris' tale, from her birth, being ripped from her mother then adopted by Israi, the sri-Kaa of the Viis empire until she is ripped away from that.This book will suck you right in with [...]

    8. I really can't formulate a coherent review for this story but it intrigued me. It really did. I have a strange feeling that they're trying to set Elberin and Anapris up, and I'm not really feeling any chemistry between them.I'm all here for her story, though. She seems like she'll harden into a fighter and a kick ass one at that.I own the other two books, so I'll def. be continuing the series to see if it gets better.

    9. Rereading my favourite series from when I was younger. I was a little worried that I wouldn't find it as good 12 or so years later but from the first chapter I've been hooked all over again and in love with the amazing alien world Chester created. I can't believe this series is not more popular and hope one day it gets the recognition it deserves. Amazing story with great characters. It will definitely be one I pass on to my kids.

    10. this Series, while I give each book a "four" separately, rates a solid 5 as a set. Deborah Chester continues her quality writing through each book. Don't let the hokey titles throw you off. She writes believable characters and story lines and pleasantly surprises you. Although, I was a bit embarrassed to run around to bookstores asking for "The Crimson Claw!"

    11. Stolen at birth from her mother and sold to the Viis princess. Apris the Aaroun is kept and raised as a pet. Her adventure begins when the Princess Kaa pulls a dangerous prank and is punished by being sold to uncaring Viis. It is a interesting series worth reading.

    12. I loved this book mainly because it gave animals personalities really made you care about them. Too often (in America especially, I think) do people discount animals; they are there for consumption, for use, and they don't have feelings. Which is just bullshit.

    13. I think the Alien Chronicles may well be my favorite series ever, even though I always forget about them until I see them sitting on my shelf. These books are extremely well written and Ampris and Elrabin are two of the most enjoyable characters I've ever experienced.

    14. I read constantly but this series stands out! If your looking for something riveting and memorable read this.

    15. My first sci-fi novel at 13. I re-read it in 2010, 10 yrs later, with the other two books in the series and I love it just as much.

    16. Awesome sci-fi story with a very emotional side to it. I love the characters and the creatures are quite unique

    17. I don't need to read the rest of this series if it features one protagonist who doesn't get a clue until the last few pages of the book, and another that I simply cannot feel sorry for.
