I have been listening to audio books, plays and the like since I was a child, which was a LONG time ago. Does that make me an expert?

    Something is alive inside Jupiter's ice moon Europa. Robot probes find an ancient tunnel beneath the surface, its walls carved with strange hieroglyphics. Led by elite engineer Alexis Vonderach, a team of scientists descends into the dark...where they confront a savage race older than mankind....

    Trip Williams says: "GREAT story of first contact!"
    "Not as much of a fan as others..however...."

    Story
    Would you try another book from Jeff Carlson and/or Amy H. Sturgis?

    Definitely, but with the caveat that the story would need to be tightened up . Amy does great work here, owning the wide array of characters that populate this sprawling book.

    Therein lies the issue I have...it sprawls. Carlson clearly has done his research, and his books are historically detailed and plausible. This classic "first contact" offering is no exception, but it does tend to get mired down in minutae.

    That said, it's not a bad listen, if nothing else for Amy's fine work.


    Would you recommend The Frozen Sky to your friends? Why or why not?

    As above. Would have to be to the right ( read Sci Fi first contact fans) but yes, it is worth the recommendation.


    What about Amy H. Sturgis’s performance did you like?

    She owns the proantagonist role. Solid.


    Did The Frozen Sky inspire you to do anything?

    Explore more Carlson works. Already an AS fan.


    Any additional comments?

    Try it...you likely will like it, with the caveats above.
