    At the end of Shadow of the Giant, Bean flees to the stars with three of his children--the three who share the engineered genes that gave him both hyper-intelligence and a short, cruel physical life. The time dilation granted by the speed of their travel gives Earth’s scientists generations to seek a cure, to no avail. In time, they are forgotten - a fading ansible signal speaking of events lost to Earth’s history. But the Delphikis are about to make a discovery that will let them save themselves, and perhaps all of humanity in days to come.

    Brittani says: "Great Build Up, and then Just Ends"
    "Final chapter in Bean's life story"

    What made the experience of listening to Shadows in Flight the most enjoyable?

    The book closes the chapter on Bean's life, but again leaves the door open for his legacy, his children, to explore a brave new world and shape history for their new race, so the saga must continue....


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Shadows in Flight?

    There was no real eureka moment for me as in previous OSC books, rather a well thought out storyline that tied up loose ends from previous adventures and sets up the landscape for new ones. I liked the legacy angle and look forward to what the offspring might get up to in future.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    All of the OSC books are well narrated by the same team, they feel like family by now.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Great way of escaping monotony for two hours of commuting every day.


    Any additional comments?

    Be warned, this book is shorter than normal, yet not a short story, but entertaining if you accept it for what it is. Probably more for OSC die hard fans like me.
