A cunning young girl comes face to face with an interstellar threat when her mother and grandfather are murdered aboard their ship while making contact with a mysterious entity.

I really enjoyed Chasing the Signal. Solid story. Solid writing. Solid performance.

Mauldin managed to accomplish quite a lot in a relatively short span of time. I found myself a little bit lost at the very beginning, listening to the first couple of minutes 2 or 3 times to get my bearings in this new world at which I had just newly arrived. The context of the world came quickly enough though.

In the end, Mauldin has crafted a relatable future world with really cool tech, baddies I want to know more about, and a lead character who I want to follow on more adventures.
