Publisher's Summary

This hard sci-fi novel is the sixth book in the Stasis Stories, a series of optimistic tales of technological innovation in the near future. They follow Kaem Seba, a young man with extraordinary math talents. With his friends, he’s come up with a device that allows time to be stopped within limited volumes of space-time. 

In this sixth story, the company Kaem, Arya Vaii, and Gunnar Schmidt founded to commercially develop his time-stopping discovery is working with NASA to move into deep space. 

Using the space tower from book five, they launch large payloads into orbit to start building a rotating wheel space station and launch a successor to the James Webb Space Telescope. Then, they put a space-launch tower on the moon that’s aimed at sending craft all over the solar system. 

Unbeknownst to them, the Haliq, a race of aliens in the Epsilon Eridani system is launching its own ships to the Sol system with the intent of finding more space for their burgeoning population. When they arrive, they’re alarmed to find intelligent beings in the system they’ve come to populate, but their obvious solution is to exterminate the problematic humans. 

The aliens have an advanced technology that lets them jump across interstellar and interplanetary space. 

But they don’t have stasis....

Change of Narrator in Book 6?!?!?!?!?

After hearing the characters with the same voices for five straight books, switching narrators who sounds like someone reading a book and not giving a performance was a let down that was impossible to overcome. I did not even finish the book, and I won't be listening to any future installments.

Keep reading

The first half if the book is pretty bland. It's all tell and no show - this happens, then this happens, then this happens. There is a time jump in here. the last half of the book is more interesting. the second half feels like the story the author really wanted to tell.

The writer thinks your stupid

The final solution is so obvious to any one with half a brain but Dahners goes on and on acting like no one else would think of it. Come on man. Also anyone with half a brain could figure out ten more solutions that are never mentioned.

Beware!!! Narrator Change!

I quit! Love the series but hate the narration change! I’m assuming this was an unavoidable decision. If it was due to $, bad decision! I won’t go forward. It was bad enough the first narrator was changed. I lived with a subpar second narrator. Will not spend the $ on a third! Too bad. Guess I’ll finish the series if I ever come across a free txt version.

pretty much all of his books are awesome!

I don't necessarily agree with a lot of his moral views or political ideas in these novels, they are written in a very acceptable way That makes you respect them at the same time. not the best story in the series but another great novel.

Stasis Book 6

I love the Stasis series! The lack in the storyline between the years Stayd opened in Italy, returned to NC and the kids growing into teens left me reeling at the disjointed, pop-up events that bridged book 5 into book 6. Those snippets of brilliance, however, did not totally satisfy the storyline as well as the earlier books did. Still, I will continue to LISTEN to all of Dahners' Stasis, Ell Donsai, Vaz and Proton series whenever these books become available at Audible. Keep pumping out those fabulous reads, Laure!

Very slow start. OK, but not as good as the others

I still enjoyed it but I found myself tuning out regularly and having to rewind it to hear the bit I'd missed.
This is partly due to the first half feeling like a fairly dry news article or an extended epilogue to the previous books. It eventually gets going but a lot of it sounds like a very long marketing infomercial for stade.
The other reason I found it harder to keep my concentration is the narration. On the previous books, the narrator has done a good job of giving a unique voice to each character which really helped keep what's happening and who's talking clear. This narrator isn't as good in my opinion and gives everyone the same voice, even the aliens.
I'm on the fence now about getting the last book if it's the same narrator.

Brilliant

Regretfully I have never before heard of this author and I ask myself why not?
The storyline was addictive,the concept stretches the imagination and the characterisation was inspired. My only criticism would be that I didn’t get anything else done for days because I had to binge listen,however I happily forgive you
