A ship stranded halfway across the galaxy. A difficult and lengthy journey home. A homeworld in urgent need of their return. And now they are running out of food. The crew of the Aurora must now trust their new allies in order to survive. But their situation may be far more serious than they imagined. And their actions could have repercussions across the galaxy. Their journey home may just have gotten slightly more complicated.

THAT NUT IS THE ONLY HOPE WE GOT RIGHT NOW
The trilogy and the Series are the worst things that can happen to a good writer. In stead of taking the effort to make each book a good read on it's own, each book (except the first) is just another chapter. This whole book could have been edited down to two chapters in a whole book. No space battles in this, just a couple of firefights. No conflict between characters, everybody just gets along. Haven is just the planet of the week.
While still a good read, Haven lacked the intrigue, excitement, and pace of Aurora. Everything is a struggle for survival and after a while you become some what bored with the experience. The book also becomes slightly predictable. I would still recommend this book though as certain parts are integral in the rest of the series.
I bought the first book despite it's short length and enjoyed it. It wasn't something new, but it was entertaining. I passed on getting book 2 a number of times due to it's cost vs length but eventually decided to give it a go. I regret that decision.
These first 2 books honestly feel like part of a longer book that was split up to make more money. Practically nothing is accomplished in this book. I would rank this among the least satisfying Audible purchases (the site currently tells me I'm at 749 titles) I have made to date.
With so many great alternatives in this genre, I can't justify spending the money to risk another lack luster entry in this series. I can't imagine how it managed to get such high ratings. Book 4 in the Odyssey One series by Evan Currie comes out in a few weeks, I'll just wait for that.
considering there are many more books to the series, this and the first book would have been better together.

A nice easy listen, less than six hours long, which is a welcome respite from the 25 to 30 hour long books I often listen to in the sci-fi/fantasy genre. I got the first two books on sale and will add more of the series to my wish list.
"Abrupt ending but still fun."
The first novel ended at a fairly logical point but this one feels like they reached an end of a chapter and said that's enough for now. In fact I have just finished the third book and it really feels like it was cut into two pieces. This also feels true with the comparatively short running times of both novels.
Having said that it is the continuation of the struggles of our intrepid band of voyagers trying to get home. And is a pleasant listen with action that keeps you interested and characters you want to learn more about. Some of the plotting is over broad and you can see events coming well in advance but the author has been able to put in a few twists and surprises to keep it interesting. The main thing is that the story moves along and is not full of filler or verbal excesses.
Other than being half a novel this I recommend this one.
"Has the makings of a great saga"
The plot thickens....was a great listen. The story closes well and pulls you into the next book. I'm hooked!
"just what i want from a sci-fi series"
i would listen to this again because although the story is easy to follow, there is so much depth to the story some of the details may be missed.
