    In the summer of 1947, an unidentified object crashed in Roswell, New Mexico. There were no survivors. Now it's happened again. But this time, two creatures have emerged from the wreckage alive.

    Story

    A wonderful syfi adventure series. Well written excellent character development and imaginative stories. Also, the narrator does a excellent job.

    The one problem is that we do not yet have access to the full series. Not only that, some of the books in the series have been skipped. The reading order should be:
    Event -- Available at audible.
    Legend -- Available at audible.
    Ancients -- Available at audible.
    Leviathan -- Missing
    Primeval -- Missing
    Legacy -- Missing
    Ripper -- Available at audible.

    If Audible had all of them I would probably add them to my library.

    NASA discovered the alien ship lurking in the asteroid belt in the 1960's. They kept the Target under intense surveillance for decades, letting the public believe they were exploring the solar system, while they worked feverishly to refine the technology needed to reach it. Dr. Jane Holloway is content documenting nearly-extinct languages and had never contemplated becoming an astronaut. But when NASA recruits her to join a team of military scientists for an expedition to the Target, it's an adventure she can't refuse.

    I would put this in the same league as the Kris Longknife, Lost Fleet, and Casandra Kresnov series. Interesting story, good character development, and the narration is top notch.

    I have every audio book in the series. This another series I enjoy and have listened to more than once. While I did not like the Vicky Peterwald series... Here the author has returned to a more tried and true action bases formula... The narrator (one of my favorites) as usual makes the story very enjoyable...

    Story

    I just got done listing to this book. I will be returning it..
    So much more could have been done with the base concept in the book.
    I was hopping for something in the Lost Fleet or Kris Longknife type of space adventure.
    I was very disappointed. The authors writing style needs lots of work.

    Example: At one point everyone on the bridge of a ship or two were introduced along a few "interesting" details about each. Now I am sorry, but most folks will only remember the names of one or two key characters. One should concentrate on developing them. Not giving me useless personal details on folks I may on hear about only one time. It got to the point I just did not care any more.

    As one reviewer also pointed out this author has a very limited view of professionalism of woman kind. Example: One of the first things a female computer expert wants to do is give the newly found alien ship the woman's touch. What??? There is more stuff like this...

    Story

    This is a well executed and pivotal book in a great series. Rennee does another outstanding job of narration. To date, I have listened to this book all the way through two times. The last two hours of the book are pivotal for the story arc and hugely enjoyable therefore I have listened to this part over five times.

    I would recommend this series from start to finish. All the books have well developed characters, lots of action, and a decent amount of humor. I enjoy this series so much that I have listened to each book at least twice, if not more...

    This is book 7 in a 14 book series...

    Her Imperial Highness the Grand Duchess Victoria Maria Teresa Inez Smythe-Peterwald, daughter of wealth and power, was raised to do little except be attractive and marry well. Then everything changed - her brother, her father’s favorite and the heir apparent, was killed in battle by Lieutenant Kris Longknife, daughter of the Peterwald’s longtime enemies. Vicky vowed revenge, but her skill set was more suitable for seduction than assassination, and she failed. Angry and disappointed, her father decided she needed military training and forced her to join the Navy.

    I like the Kris Longknife books and the other spin offs. This on is boring, not enough action, a lot of the action is very contrived, and the book has too much sex.

    In 23 Years on Fire, Cassandra discovered that the technology that created her has been misused in her former home and now threatens all humanity with catastrophe. Returning home to Callay, she finds that Federation member worlds, exhausted by the previous thirty-year-war against the League, are unwilling to risk the confrontation that a solution may require. More frighteningly for Sandy, she has brought back to Callay three young children, whom she met on the mean streets of Droze, discovering maternal feelings she had not known she possessed.

    I have listened to all the books in the series. The first three books three times each because they were so enjoyable.

    The third book only once (so far).

    This forth book is one of the best. If you like stories that explore the nature of societies, the meaning of humanity, human androids, political intrigue, lots of gun fights, and strong female leads this one is for you.

She must lead an assault against the Federation world of Pyeongwha, where a terrible sociological phenomenon has unleashed hell against the civilian population. Then she faces the threat from a portion of League space known as New Torah, in which a ruthless regime of surviving corporations are building new synthetic soldiers but taking the technology in alarming directions.

    Story

    This is a logical next step in the series story arch. As usual Dina Pearlman gives an excellent performance.. If you like the Kris LongKnike series by Mike Shepperd you will like this one. Though this series is a bit deeper in the philosophical reflection department.

    There is political intrigue, ass kicking of bad guys by Sandy and her friends, Ground Battles, philosophical reflection on the nature of man and how technology can change him, and lessons on various current religions and East Asian societies -- reflected into the future.

    I enjoyed it and will be listening to this book again.

    Kris Longknife is back in the good graces of the brass - and to demonstrate that, they've promoted her to Admiral. Now her mission is to find the home base of the space pirates who are plaguing the fringes of the galaxy. But no mission is ever simple when your name is Longknife. And this time the complications range from the military to the personal, as Kris finds herself - reluctantly - having to make some command decisions about her future....

    I have now listened to the whole series. I love it... I think this is another series I will listen to more than once.

    If you like space battles salted by political intrigue you will like this series.

    Most of the series does not have even a mention of sex. This one has some sex scenes but nothing really hardcore..
