They were sent to investigate the first extraterrestrial signal. What they found was beyond anything they could have imagined - or feared. On a voyage to a mysterious moon in the Alpha Centauri system, the UEA Centaurus meets with disaster. Only the quick thinking of the flight engineer, Rachel Terman, saves some of the crew. Crash-landing on the moon, trillions of kilometers from Earth, they struggle to carry out their mission and try to survive. But nothing has prepared them for what they will face.

Enjoyed this immensely and I think it would make for a riveting Big Screen Movie! It will keep your attention to the last paragraph.

Somewhere on the outer rim of the universe, a mass of decaying world-ships known as the Legion is traveling in the seams between the stars. For generations, a war for control of the Legion has been waged, with no clear resolution. As worlds continue to die, a desperate plan is put into motion. Zan wakes with no memory, prisoner of a people who say they are her family.

Couldn't make myself care or even like the characters. Plot was obtuse and slow to develop... Narrators were good.

My name is Alice Long, and I've always known I was different. When I was little I used to climb up to the highest branches of the housetree at night, and watch the starships docking at the orbital stations high above. Forty meters off the ground, watching ships 30,000 kilometers overhead, with senses that could pick out radar pings and comm chatter as easily as the ships themselves. It all seemed perfectly natural at the time.

Captured attention from the first few lines and kept you eagering listening until the very last word. I cannot praise the Audio Performer enough. Her acting and varied voices she used were spot on!

If not for the frequent PLEEASE... entreaties and some singular stupidity attributed to the lead character, I would have given the story higher marks. Narrator fabulous.
