    From the Audie-nominated narrator of The Martian. In eleven years' time, a million members of an alien race will arrive at Earth. Years before they enter orbit, their approach will be announced by the flare of a thousand flames in the sky, their ships' huge engines burning hard to slow them from the vast speeds needed to cross interstellar space. These foreboding lights will shine in our night sky like new stars, getting ever brighter until they outshine even the sun, casting ominous shadows and banishing the night until they suddenly blink out.

    Story

    If you have some kind of advanced science or engineering education (anything beyond college intro) there are parts of this book that will make you twitch unpleasantly. Statisticians and medical professionals in particular might want to keep away.

    That said, I found this book enjoyable, and if you're looking for some passable Sci Fi, this fits the bill. I look forward to future installments.

    If you find writerly ticks irritating, I recommend that you pair this book with a drinking or snacking game based on the word "proverbial". That way its frequent appearance will be fun instead of grating!
