Publisher's Summary

Please note: contains sensitive content.

In this scripted Audible Original, wisecracking marine biologist and astronaut Bee Guerrero has signed up for the trip of a lifetime: a series of dives deep into the pitch-black waters of Saturn’s moon, Enceladus. 

Set in the near-future when global climate catastrophe has forced humans to search for solutions on new planets, The Sea in the Sky chronicles two astronauts’ journey, in what could be the final NASA-sponsored mission to space. In their search for life, Bee and Ty navigate uncharted waters, take on incredible risks and confront difficult truths about themselves. What will they find at the bottom of it all? 

At times epic and intimate, laugh-out-loud funny and achingly soulful, The Sea in the Sky plumbs the depths of science and faith, triumph and failure. The Audible Original drama is told via daily "dispatches" sent from the space shuttle back to Earth, together with original music and sound design, a never-before-heard space rap, and a full cast of actors. 

Dive into a world you need to hear to believe.

Escape

Being a commercial diver for 18 years I had my reservations about the story. I drove & listened. I was drawn deeper into the characters. Finally had to come home, put my ear buds in, turn off the lights. I dove with Bee. Thanks, we all need an escape.

Best sci-fi this year!

The sound effects and recording quality were amazing! it felt like I was in the pod with them. seriously, a few times I took off my head phones to ensure the sound were from the story.
The characters were all great, and the sci-fi/spiritual elements were well done (and I'm an atheist).
I couldn't put it down!

Why does this have such a high rating?

I have no idea why this is rated so highly. The voice actors, especially B, are very annoying and I was cringing throughout the whole series. I do not recommend.

Wow

I was really impressed by the voice acting and the quality of production! I hope there will be more work if this calibre, I would pay a credit for this. I was very into the story and the dynamics between characters was keeping me engaged during the more day-to-day slower moments. That only brought more life and texture to the character. Thank you!

A good ride

I wasn't sure about it at first. Parts feel pretty slow and similar, and to be honest I found B quite annoying in the get go. Then suddenly it grips you on an emotional rollercoaster and is hard to stop. Amazing voice acting, and a lot of truths to the human mind in this story. I liked it.

A wild Sci-fi

First of all I want to say the audio of this story was perfect, I couldn't ask for a higher quality. This being said the story didn't suit my like all that much. I prefer stories that end with less mystery and are more upbeat. No need to add more isolation to an already isolating 2021 lockdown.

Wonderful, unforgettable characters and story.

Fully immersive sounds and performance, absolutely perfect. Didn't feel like narrators reading a book, it felt like you were in the story itself.

The chapters kept me guessing on what was next, and I really cared for the characters.Some unexpected twists and turns, combined with emotional story telling made this a fantastic experience.
