Publisher's Summary

In the year 2204, tragedy and terror forced a scientific team to prematurely evacuate Maleiva III. Nineteen years later, a rogue moon hurtling through space is about to obliterate the last opportunity to study this rare, life-supporting planet. With less than three weeks left before the disaster, superluminal pilot Priscilla "Hutch" Hutchins -- the only even remotely qualified professional within light years of the ill-fated planet -- must lead a small scientific team to the surface to glean whatever they can about its life forms and lost civilizations before time runs out.

But catastrophe awaits when they are stranded on this strange and complex world of puzzles and impossibilities. And now Hutch and her people must somehow survive on a hostile world going rapidly mad -- as the clock ticks toward apocalypse for a doomed enigma.

    Story
    "A great second book"

    While it does seem to drag on occasion the story is nonetheless compelling and captures the reader or in this case, listener. The story is good but it is character growth that plays the most. Also, while the performer for the first book, Engines of God, was very good, I can't help but find this performer was even better.

    Story
    "Good book, so-so sequel to the first."

    The book itself is quite good, we immediately went on to the next one. However there are serious continuity breaks from the previous book, Themes that were significant there vanished without explanation here. Also this has a different narrator than the first one, and while she's good, she pronounces names differently, which we find jarring. The next one is better though!

    Story
    "First few hours were hell."

    Just finished this book and I have to say the first few hours were boring and confusing. But as the story rolled on it became better and better with an epic ending. So, if you can make it though the first few hours then give this one a listen.

    Story
    "Khristine Kvan is disgusting"

    Reader has fatal case of vocal fry. If that was not disgusting enough, most of her character voices are so annoying as to cause the reader to cringe. Please fire this woman and commission a new reader for DeepSix. Can I get a refund?

    Story
    "Better than book 1"

    This story was easier to immerse yourself in. I credit the narrator for this. Khristine Hvam does an exceptional job of giving life to the characters.
