Earth is a dying planet. To survive, humanity founds the Circuit, a string of colonies across the solar system, dedicated to mining resources vital to preserving what remains of mankind. Here there are no heroes or villains, only those willing to do what's necessary to survive. The New Earth Tribunal, a powerful religious faction, has risen to rule the Circuit. They believe a Spirit within the Earth will one day appear and welcome humanity back home.

Hundreds die in a fiery train crash in northern China. A cargo ship smuggling refugees is lost to calm seas off the Libyan coast. Entire villages in Ghana are abandoned overnight. Contracted by an apocalypse prepper group to investigate a series of seemingly disconnected global tragedies, a young medical investigative reporter, Angelique de l'Enfantine, uncovers a disturbing pattern to the tragedies. Are they harbingers of an impending biblical catastrophe? Or practice runs by a fanatical organization bent on global annihilation?

Written well. The narrator though was a bit robotic and I couldn't help but find my mind wandering.

Ruby and Chris could be perfect together. Unfortunately, they're working for opposing presidential campaigns. Unable to ignore their feelings, they become entangled in an across-the-aisle attraction complete with nonstop travel, Shakespearian references, scandals, and even a few meetings in airport bathrooms. It will take more than a miracle to help these two party-crossed lovers meet in the middle.

The story itself: The plot left a LOT to be desired. If I were reading this, I wouldn't have finished it. A lot of the story felt forced and contrived. It was like the author wanted to fit in different lines of investigation but they didn’t quite fit together. The author tried too hard to fit in the lines of plot so the story felt forced and clunky.
On the other hand, the narration by Madeline Mrozek was the best part of the whole story and it made it so much easier to listen to. She was easy to understand. I didn’t get confused on who was talking when she read dialogue.
Overall, I’m only just “meh” about this story.
I received this audiobook at no-cost from Audiobookworm Promotions. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
