Persecuted refugees from six separate alien races have migrated to the idyllic planet Jijo. And despite their incredible diversity, the inhabitants live together in blissful harmony. However, settlement on Jijo is illegal - and it's only a matter of time before the residents of this forbidden paradise are discovered by the galactic powers-that-be.

"Immensely appealing, leaving readers hungry for more." (Publishers Weekly)
I can't imagine a serious scfi reader that could get into it.
Not series as there are many that I enjoy.
The book is not worth reading
I probably will not load this authors books into my library.
It is a long invovled series and there are some very interesting twists. The book does have some interesting analogies but it simply took too long to get there.
I wanted to find out what the dolphins found but the book took too long to set it up.
His voices were very annoying.
I love Sci Fi but I am not interested in the up lift of animals. The dynanmics between the alien races was interesting.
Kept waiting for a story that did not happened
Stick to one main story that mattered
Very good narration, the only thing that was good about the book
All the children school adventure and useless characters that did nothing that mattered to the book.
Waste of money.
This is the first review I've written even though I've listened to many many scifi books. The narrator should be commended for trying to make a listenable performance out of goobly gook.
This book was terrible. Boring. You could see where it was going thruout the entire book. I didn't finish it. The repetitive way in which it is written is elementary and amateurish it seems like the author was trying to cover this fact with an overload ridiculous alien races and information about them.
it you have insomnia then this is ur book it will literally put you to sleep
It's a decent Scifi book. Long, but just as the action would start the author takes you on this poetic dialog of the Asks. After awhile you get lost with a lot of words that don't help the story out.
I love hard core sci-fi, supernatural and fantasy
God bless George Wilson for trying to make this horrid book listenable. This has to be the worst writing in the SF genre I've ever encountered. It is a horrible knock off of Heinlein I've had the displeasure of being subjected to. Do you grok me? I couldn't finish this book. I got two parts in and just had to put it down.
I tried to like this one. I really did. I made it thru the first three hours before I just had to stop.
The naration is horrible - the voice characterizations are annoying and frustrating - like listening to someone try to talk with a mouth full of honey.
The story wasn't any better. Plodding, fractured, and going no where.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
