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.

Captivating.

Glad I choose this series. Characters and their interaction with each other and the essential story line is good.

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
