Publisher's Summary

The stars are within mankind’s reach…but what awaits in the void may end humanity.

Mars and the Moon have been colonized, piracy runs rampant in the asteroid belts, and a thriving society grows in the depths of space. Humanity prepares to embark upon its greatest journey - the colonization of Alpha Centauri.

Then, everything changes. A deep space reconnaissance probe discovers a new Earth-like planet 12 light-years from Earth’s sun. The probe also finds something unusual, something...unnerving. A new mission is created, a space fleet is formed, and humanity embarks on unravelling the greatest mystery of all - the origins of life itself.

Can the factions of Earth remain united, or will old rivalries and animosities destroy the fragile peace in the face of this terrifying existential threat? Will exploration prove to be a fatal mistake?

If you love new technologies, fast-paced action, and gut-wrenching turns of fate, you’ll love this military sci-fi series.

Came for Jonathan Davis, stayed for the story

You know the drill. Too many choices makes spending your next credit difficult. Some time ago I started searching for new listens based on good narrators. That's how I stumbled upon this title.

Another review said this book reminded them of Star Trek and other Earth future Sci Fi - I tend to agree. I also like the level of detail in regards to the technology.

Its only early in the series and I can feel the story arcs developing, enough that I'll try the second installment. I'll be looking for more character development. There's some, but there needs to be more in my view. Having said that, its enjoyable and feels to be going somewhere.

However, be warned. Rosone is a Musk fan boy. I did think about stopping right when I first heard a reference, but pettiness is unbecoming someone older than 5.

:-D

A Little Childish for Me

I think this book's target demographic is for an adolescent. I've been reading Si FI for over fifty years and a well written book about the future can be mesmerizing in its futuristic possibilities. Not this one....seemed a little silly to me.

Glorious Take On Science Fiction

As a child of the 70's I grew up reading Asimov and Bradbury. Watching Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica. As the 80's came I watched more scifi and military dramas. This novel captures the spirit of many of my favorite scifi novels and movies that I grew up with. I captured my mind and left me ready for the next installment. I am visually impaired so I love that this was available on audiobook along with so many others. James Rosone is a wonderful storyteller!

Great book

Haven’t had a good audio book in a while this was great . Very little trash and bad language thanks ( I’ll bet no one ever gave a book a bad review because it didn’t have enough f words in it) again thanks

Great narration. Clumsy story

Clumsy. Just all over the place. I wanted to like this book. The plot was interesting. The execution was clumsy.
There are many well done sci-fi stories out there. Skip this one.
Btw the narrator does incredible work on another series on an alien planet. Listen to that one instead.

Very entertaining

Very good listen. I thought the story line was good and realistic. The aliens were surprisingly different and the one group was terrifying. I will be waiting for book 2.

The sci-fi story I always wanted

This is a fantastic example of what science fiction should be which is grounded in reality, without being too boring or dry. I’d highly recommend this book to anybody interested in any kind of sci-fi, As it is brought to life by one of the best narrators I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to. 10 out of 10

Really enjoyed, looking forward to the next book

I love sci-fi, but it seems the last few books I've bought could all have been part of the same series since they were all so similar. This series has a unique concept and I enjoyed the characters.
