Publisher's Summary

Terry Clark grew up surrounded by his parent’s life’s work, the rescue and rehabilitation of cetaceans. Born just after first contact with the Galactic Union, he’s never known a time when aliens weren’t visiting Earth. At 10 years old, he had a normal life, until a visit from one of the aliens resulted in a ground-breaking discovery. The cetaceans have a developed and complex language...and it can be deciphered by the aliens’ translators.

When Terry’s father begins using alien implant technology to test the boundaries of the cetaceans’ language and society, though, he goes too far, and the fledgling world government becomes involved. Without warning, the scientists are labeled as criminals, and the cetaceans are scheduled for termination. In order to save the cetaceans, the researchers have to flee off-world with them.

In the Lupasha star system, Terry tries to begin a new life. While the world is ideal for the cetaceans, it’s difficult for their Human wardens. Even worse, the planet’s previous owners now want it back. As they don’t mind killing all the Humans in the process, Terry is trapped in a life or death struggle, which leads to a discovery that could change the course of humanity’s role in the galaxy.

Welcome to the Frontiers series, the first young adult collection set in the wildly popular Four Horsemen Universe.

Coming of Age in the Four Horsemen Universe

Being a fan of the "regular" Four Horsemen Universe books, I was kinda skeptical about a "Young Adult" but the author nailed it. Despite being in my 50s, I was able to recall my tween / early teens and still relate to the protagonist and his peers. I'm looking forward to the others in the "Young Adult" portion of the 4HU.

Inconsistencies and contradictions are just too mu

Don't want to spoil too much so I'll just give one example. The main protagonist looks up to and emulates a mercenary whose job it is to kill aliens. Apparently that's okay because the aliens just don't value life like humans do. That's right, it's okay to kill them because they don't value life

good book

good book. mark Wandrey is a great writer. my only problem is the high pitched voices used for some of the characters and the cetaceans.

a great coming of age novel set in the 4 horseman universe.

Love the story!

Listen to Audiobooks during my daily commute, and this one I've listened to 3 times in short order. Hoping we will hear more from Terry and Cetations!

Less YA and more of a 4HU book from a kids POV

great read and listen and can't wait for the next in series to see where they link into series given the point in which it happens on the time line.
