A billion years later, Brannock is dispatched to Earth to check on some strange anomalies. While there, he meets Laurinda Ashcroft, another hybrid upload.

    "I'll read it in person...."

    This story is so...disjointed. It feels like a book meant to be read. Listening to it probably does not have the same effect.

    "Could not finish it..."

    Characters seemed too pompous...not an enjoyable read....did not like the narrators voice for the female character... This narrator did an excellent job in the Draco Tavern by Larry Niven.
