Publisher's summary

Cassia Vici is on a one-way trip to Saturn - to help humanity reach the stars.

A towering genius who'd already solved the problem of death by making memory recording possible, Cassia leads a team of scientists and problem solvers to a station floating in the harsh winds of Saturn. Their mission: to grow interstellar ships using nanobots in the planet's material-rich environment. She called them "monsters" to help sell the project to a skeptical public.

Little did she know how prophetic that name would become.

But an unexpected death seeds doubt among the team, putting the mission in jeopardy. As her team struggles to save the future, Cassia is haunted by her past - a wife and daughter who died in the very technology that made mind recording possible.

With time running out, Cassia and her crew will need one final miracle to build the monsters that could become both their savior - and their doom.

About the Performer

Amy Deuchler was born and raised in the Chicago area. She spent her childhood reading and performing in plays, so narrating audiobooks is the dream job for this librarian-theater nerd. She is currently a finalist for Best Mystery in the 2021 Independent Audiobook Awards, and was a finalist for Best Female Narrator and Best Mystery in 2020. Her voice is warm, intuitive, and clever, described by listeners as "a very smooth voice" and "a delightful tone."
When not narrating, Deuchler can be found designing lights and scenery for theater, doing any kind of handmade craft, and biking. She also loves to spend time exploring the Milwaukee/Chicago area with her boyfriend and doting on their three cats.
