Robust, peaceful, and confident, the Commonwealth dispatched a ship to investigate the mystery of a disappearing star, only to inadvertently unleash a predatory alien species that turned on its liberators, striking hard, fast, and utterly without mercy.The Prime are the Commonwealth's worst nightmare. Coexistence is impossible with the technologically advanced aliens, who are genetically hardwired to exterminate all other forms of life.
Yawn and awe mixture

Maybe I'm missing something
Any additional comments?
*** Spoiler questions ***
Maybe I snoozed through these parts but what happened to the high angel's involvement in the plot? Also what was SI's agenda? Doesn't tie it all up at the end as I had hoped it would.

- A Jeff Aiken Novel
- By: Mark Russinovich

An airliner’s controls abruptly fail mid-flight over the Atlantic. An oil tanker runs aground in Japan when its navigational system suddenly stops dead. Hospitals everywhere have to abandon their computer databases when patients die after being administered incorrect dosages of their medicine. In the Midwest, a nuclear power plant nearly becomes the next Chernobyl when its cooling systems malfunction. At first, these random computer failures seem like unrelated events.
I was a skeptic but now I'm not! Really good book!

Good concept, bad narration
Is there anything you would change about this book?
Narration... Narration... Narration...
I couldn't believe my ears when the narrator kept pronouncing malware as mailware... are you serious? I also hear ICQ pronounced IQC.... just horrible narration. I didn't want to take a star away from overall but the narration really take away from the overall experience.
