Publisher's Summary

An intelligent robot and two young people explore Proxima Centauri b, the planet orbiting our nearest star, Proxima Centauri. Their ideas about the mission quickly prove grossly naive as they venture about on this planet of extremes.

Where are the senders of the call for help that lured them here? They find no one and no traces on the daylight side, so they place their hopes upon an expedition into the eternal ice on Proxima b's dark side. They not only face everlasting night, the team encounters grave dangers. A fateful decision will change the planet forever.

Story is great, format is not

These three books are one story and cannot possibly stand on their own as in a regular series. In fact, they may as well have each finished mid-sentence for as much sense it made to split them where they did. They also clearly weren't split solely due to length either, since many Sci-Fi books are much longer. So this is another example of a publisher splitting a book up purely for profits which I think is shameful. It may seem unfair for me to "punish" the book/author with 3 stars solely for this reason, but it's my opinion that the author was either part of the decision or holds some responsibility for working with an unscrupulous publisher.
The story itself, however, when considered as a whole is pretty darn good!! It starts strong, the middle section is the weakest and the book really starts to shine in it's last third. It's a great combination of science, exploration, mystery and "first contact" and certainly entertains.

1 great story, multiple books unnecessary

Let me start with this is a great book! If you like a I really enjoy this story, BUT it doesn't need to be split into three books. The story arches don't support it and it seems a bit much that this story costs 3 credits or $60+.

Nothing happens- go from book 1 to 3

I really like the series but this part is not essential. In fact, I accidentally skipped from book 1 to book 3 and didn't really notice much of a lack of continuity. There were a few things that seem unresolved at the end of book 3 so I went back to listen to book 2. Nothing, absolutely nothing happens in it. No answers to the questions that remain from books 1 and 3. Save the credit.

Abrupt and unsatisfying end

The writing is enjoyable and interesting. However, this book does not end at a logical place. Be warned! You will be left hanging. Though I would like to see how this story ends, I won’t pay for another book. The next would probably just leave me hanging again. Consequently, I’m done with this author.

Dennis E Taylor’s Bobiverse books each end at a logical place and each is very satisfying. This author should pay attention to how sequels should be done.

Great story but as others have said, 1 book

I loved the story and the narrator was great. I'm annoyed that I had to pay for two additional audiobooks (after the free one) to finish the story. It's presented as three books but it's really just one story and should be kept together like that. I see the split as a way to get more money for this story. I would have valued this much more at one price.

Great start, then fail

After the first book I thought the second would get going and answer some questions, instead we have a 2nd AI who is crazy and no answers. it's like the writer doesn't know the answers or where to go from here. This is where I end the series.

READY TO GIVE UP WITH 40 MINUTES TO GO.

So much rambling by these characters. It's obvious the author is stretching the HELL outta this story, trying to make it into a whole book. Halfway through, I struggled to continue. The first book was so interesting. This should be one book (heavily edited), not a 3 book series. Irritated.

A bit of a letdown

As many have said, it is hard to justify this bit of the story being a separate book. Not enough happened in it. I think I'll grab the next book though, but just because I want to see where it all leads.
And I was annoyed with he stupidity of the characters, and I was not at all convinced by losing someone in the dark. Has the author ever been out at night, away from cities? If you even have some small light source, you're visible from very, very far away. It would be a challenge to not be seen in such a situation that the author described.
Immersionbreaking.
And that was not the only seemingly illogical part of the story. The author needs to get more constructive criticism before release.

Boring. Monotonous recital

Maybe it's me. I somewhat enjoyed the first book, although I found the performer's voice oddly irritating. Very monotone. With this second book, maybe there were some technical problems, but I got through Chapter One, and then Chapter two started, and it was the exact same audio as Chapter One. Then it seemed to jump ahead to about Chapter 16 without me noticing.

The story just plodded along with nothing really happening.

In a first for me, I'm going to give up on it and try something else. Buyer beware. It's just dull and nothing happens.

Great series

My only negative comment is that it's a little slow, but interesting and compelling; a fun journey.

1.5 books stretched into 3 books

The story and performance are good and the mood is excellent throughout. However these three books really feel like one shorter story padded out to make 3 relatively short books. It would have been better as two normal length books and I'm not sure why the three book format was chosen.

Disappointing

I’d listened to the first book in this series and whilst it took a while to get going when it did it was a strong story line and I couldn’t wait to listen to this book
It’s a total let down the story line is weak and in places just bizarre
It starts off promisingly then grinds to a halt and goes no where for the last few hours it just stays in a repetitive loop never getting going again it doesn’t leave you on a cliff hanger hungry for the next book it leaves you wanting to jump off a cliff if it doesn’t end sooner

not as good as the first one

started off good but started to fizzle in the second half...
unsure where it's going now but I will give the third one a chance.
