On June 30, 1908, an object fell from the sky, releasing more energy than a thousand Hiroshima bombs. A Siberian forest was flattened, but the strike left no significant crater. The anomaly came to be known as the Tunguska Event, and scientists have never agreed whether it was the largest meteor strike in recorded history - or something else. Alien artifacts have been uncovered since the 1908 event, and a new star drive is discovered.

It was great to finally get to listen to something of such a great quality!

I gained a lot of satisfaction from both the narration and the story. I liked the way the story was presented - it was fast, gripping and entertaining but at the same time author managed to introduce us to the characters very closely and despite the fact that they were many and everyone had a separate story - it somehow didn't slow the book down and what is important - every story was interesting and didn't give the feeling I've had in other books of other authors - where one of those would be a favorite story and I would hate to detour. It absolutely wasn't the case here.

Also I liked the fact that the science behind the story was explained just enough to get the feeling of real science-fiction!

Can't wait for the next in series!
