"Narrator Jennifer Hale's outstanding performance brings this story of alien invasion to life...Hale's range of differentiation is masterly as she animates all the quirky characters Kira meets. From the rough, snarky slang of ex-military woman to the half-mad musings of a human "ship mind," every unique voice enhances the listening experience." -- AudioFile Magazine, Earphones Award winner

Kira Navárez dreamed of life on new worlds.

Now she's awakened a nightmare.

During a routine survey mission on an uncolonized planet, Kira finds an alien relic. At first she's delighted, but elation turns to terror when the ancient dust around her begins to move.

As war erupts among the stars, Kira is launched into a galaxy-spanning odyssey of discovery and transformation. First contact isn't at all what she imagined, and events push her to the very limits of what it means to be human.

While Kira faces her own horrors, Earth and its colonies stand upon the brink of annihilation. Now, Kira might be humanity's greatest and final hope . . .

Devgear ,

I waited a decade for this?

I’m a huge fan of the Inheritance Cycle, as many who will be interested in this book are also, and I was so excited when he spoke at the end of Inheritance, about venturing out into the sci-fi realm. But I struggled to comprehend the meaning and purpose of this book. Christopher can definitely write, that’s not the issue here, rather it’s his lack of life and relationship experience that comes across in his writing more clearly. I can hear the influences of other writers and movies watched being used as experience as was more evident in his previous books. I had hoped he would be able to contribute more depth in this work. I think with the popularity and success of his first books he clearly felt he could do anything because everyone loved him! Ugh... I forced myself to finish this out of duty and because a paid the $44 for it. Yes, I downloaded this five minutes after midnight on September 15... I am a Paolini fan, don’t misunderstand my review here.
But sadly not of his attempt into sci fi writing. Even Christopher admits in the commentary at the end, “it’s not perfect.” I have to agree.
I hope I don’t have to wait another decade for more of the same.
