Publisher's Summary

Twelve years ago, NASA researcher Peter Abbott disappeared while on a mission to study a meteor that had crashed on an uncharted island in the South Pacific.

His wife, Claire Hamilton, a scientist herself, picked up the pieces of her broken life and started over. Now a professor of astrobiology at the University of Washington, Claire has remarried and is raising six-year-old twins with her husband, Jack.

But her idyllic life is shattered once again when NASA shows up at Claire's door with incredible news - Peter is alive, and they want her to join a mission to rescue him from the island. And the most stunning revelation - it wasn't a meteor that Peter had gone to study, as they had told her a dozen years ago, but an extraterrestrial artifact.

Torn between the love for her family and the prospect of being part of the most important discovery in human history, Claire struggles with the decision join the dangerous mission. Meanwhile, sinister forces begin aligning to prevent her from rescuing Peter or uncovering the mystery of the alien object.

And as the danger mounts, she will make a shocking discovery, one with the potential to alter the course of her life-and of mankind - forever.

Great story!

Listened to & read this book at the same time. Compelling storytelling, science fiction with a great big heart. The pacing is spot-on, reader is sucked into the rich complexities Claire faces in her personal & professional life. Almost like A Wrinkle in Time for grown ups. Listen & enjoy.

Solid SciFi with abit of creep added

A solid offering in all aspects. Abit SciFi, a bit spooky, and solid storytelling and performance. Took a while to get started, but well worth the credit, and the time. Recommended.

needs an editor

this is potentially a great story and a very new take in the 'alien artifact ' genre
however
it's like it was written by two different authors. one laid down the story then a second one went in and added a lot of tedious ramblings. the first chapter is the worst. it's just everything you could ever say about it being a cold day but extra boring.
there is a bit where a metaphorical half open door is described in detail.
phrases are repeated in the same sentence
the word paradigm is used way too often
in short. great idea. needs an editor
also no ending
