"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 . . .

Thought Provoking with Deep (Good) Characterization
I loved this book! It held my interest throughout the story. I really didn’t want it to end (i.e looking forward to the next book!). I liked that it bounded the physics (outlandish as is was) to a fixed degree such that the characters had to struggle within the physical limitations of what could be done given the technology they had on hand (i.e. no free lunches). I loved the spectrum of characters and caring that they showed for their companions. It was heartening to experience their willingness to sacrifice, often at the risk of their own lives, to ensure the safety of those that they loved. Of all, a humans ability to self sacrifice through love is what I enjoy to read and feel good about; be it truth or fiction. This book defiantly satisfied that feeling for me…
This book impacted me, just like the Eragon series did when I was younger. I feel this really empty hole in my chest now that I have finished this book. All the characters are just so awesome and the story is insanely creative and intense. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.
Not a fan
That story just repeated its self not worth it
