This is a good Mystery story. Very good narration - if you are listening on an Otis use format 3 - 2 loses too much nuance. Pattern recognition (the technology) isn?t science fiction nor is most of the technology described in the book and the story takes place in the recent past. The author does a great job of helping you see the world as he does and his prose is excellent. I found the pace a little slow but really enjoyed this book.
This is the second volume of a 4 part series. The first hour is a recap of the major plot points of the first novel. I enjoyed the essays on the various intelligent species of the galaxy. The plot is farfetched but the use of science, particularly physics, and biology is fascinating.
I listened to Summertide the first book in the series and really enjoyed it. This one was good but not quite as believable. Overall a pleasant way to spend 9+ hours.
I look forward to hearing Transcendence: Book 3 of The Heritage Universe and then Convergence (the whole series is available from Audible).
