Publisher's Summary

Some things are better off forgotten.

Sheriff Hayden Duke was born on the Pilgrim, and he expects to die on the Pilgrim, like his father, and his father before him.

That's the way things are on a generation starship centuries from home. He's never questioned it. Never thought about it. And why bother? Access points to the ship's controls are sealed, the systems that guide her automated and out of reach. It isn't perfect, but he has all he needs to be content.

Until a malfunction forces his engineer wife to the edge of the habitable zone to inspect the damage.

Until she contacts him, breathless and terrified, to tell him she found a body, and it doesn't belong to anyone on board.

Until he arrives at the scene and discovers both his wife and the body are gone.

The only clue? A bloody handprint beneath a hatch that hasn't opened in hundreds of years.

Until now.

Surprised

At first I thought it was going to be a police thriller. Then I thought it was going to be a monster story. It turned out to be much more. I have already downloaded the next in the series. Well done.

Should be One Book

It was great until the big giveaway 90% through. Lost interest at that point and will not bother with the next two books unless they go on sale. It appears like this is headed to be an active shooter book with the sheriff killing everything to try to accomplish his goal. Got boring by the end. The narrator is excellent.

Warning, You have to Wait to hear how it ends

I enjoyed this book very much. I totally wasn't expecting the twist of what lays beyond the boundaries of the main ship.
I am not a fan of cliffhanger endings and didn't realize this book ended on a cliffhanger that I now need to wait til the next book is released to hear how it all wraps up.

Surprise

Well I didn’t see that coming..... I love when a book surprises me with a twist. I predicted something very different happening. Not a perfect story, but it left not wanting to stop listening and to me that is when I know it was worth the credit.

Good story.

The story is very entertaining. At times, some characters appear one dimensional but it doesn’t destroy the story. Lots of action and suspense.

Great Narration, weak story.

J. Davis brings a flat character to life with his narration. My primary gripe with this story is that it doesn't flesh the main charater out as much as I'd like. The synopsis seems all the back story we get regarding our protagonist, and we don't hear enough about his ideas, ideals and supporting characters to build an opinion about him before the action starts. Once characters that have a sort of environment about them are introduced, they're just as easily thrown away for the sake of the story, sacrificing character development for plot movement.

Can’t wait for the next one!

I bought this book on a whim, as I thought the story seemed like it would hold my interest. And it did. I can’t wait for the next book to be released on Audible! Their was plenty of action, and the narrator was very good!

Great Story, Awesome Narrator

Loved the story and the narrator. The narrator does a really good job with reflecting the characters emotions. I almost didn’t sleep all night because I couldn’t stop listening. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

The Fatal Flaw of "What if's"

This was a frustrating listen. The plot had so much potential but was derailed by the authors incessant use of "what if" narrative of Capt. Obvious questions. Removing all the sentences containing "what if.." would have made this a much better story. Excellent concept with unexpected plot twists, but in need of some serious editing.

Generation Ship - Interesting Concepts

What an interesting story concept with twists and turns. This doesn't get a 5 because some parts of the plot are a bit tenuous such as the protagonist's reasons for doing things. Perhaps all will become clear in the later parts. Saying that, the author isn't afraid to grapple with some wild concepts. The narrator is a hoot, talking softly during slower parts and sounding frantic during the action scenes. I soon got into his narrating style.

awful

The worst audio book I have listened to so far. A one dimensional read, with a limp twist at the end, in the so bad it's nearly, but not quiet good category.

LOL what a romp

This book is so bad it reminds me of Snakes On A Plane, or maybe Sharknado. It borrows shamelessly from every sci-fi classic, past and present. I’m torn whether or not to buy the sequel, but it’s so bad it’s good.

Mediocre at best

About as original as a chocolate mice in a penny mix. You can almost tell what films he was watching as he wrote it. Performance by Jonathan Davis was/is the best thing about it

exciting and thrilling

this is exciting and thrilling. full of action mystery and surprises. It really shows what a man will do for love. But this is no boring love story. this is like a child's imagination gone wild keeping you ads edge of your seat and want you to know more and more.
