Nina Munteanu’s Splintered Universe Trilogy now out on Audible!

The new remastered audiobooks of Nina Munteanu’s popular Splintered Universe Trilogy featuring Galactic Guardian Detective Rhea Hawke is now out on Audible. Narrated by Dawn Harvey, the trilogy follows the intrepid, though often misguided, detective as she tries to solve the mysterious genocide of a spiritual sect on some backwater planet. She bungles her mission by killing her only lead and instead discovers a conspiracy to exterminate humanity by an alien race only she thinks exists. It goes downhill for her from there. She gets fired and her sentient ship–her only friend–is impounded. Her whole life comes apart. Her only chance to rebuild it is to prove that her discovery is true. That leads her down a rabbit hole into a dangerous world of intrigue, full of unsavory shape-shifting characters, dust smuggling, giant flying crustaceans, amorous toxic plants. and portals into mirror universes.
Ms. Harvey’s voice of Rhea Hawke is rich like coffee, sexy yet vulnerable. Says one Goodreads review: “Dawn Harvey breathed incredible life into the lead character, Rhea Hawke–boh sarcastic and vulnerable…a detective with a cynical edge, and sultry voice tinged with wry sarcasm. The story unfolded through Rhea’s narrative like an old film noir as she unraveled mysteries that led to the greatest one: her own.”
