    After thousands of years searching, humans stand on the verge of first contact with an alien race. There are two human groups: the Qeng Ho, a culture of free traders, and the Emergents, a ruthless society based on the technological enslavement of minds.The group that opens trade with the aliens will reap unimaginable riches.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I admit I am on a John Lee kick at the moment. Perhaps having him read may have helped me. Overall, the story just took a long time to develop. I didn't develop in interest in the characters and didn't feel any tension coming off the characters who were stressed over possible outcomes in the future. I thought the story would pickup once they reached the On-Off star. I made it all the way to Underhill's special event and gave up. I am glad others have enjoyed the story.

    Any additional comments?

    I hope it wasn't on sale for $4.95!
