Publisher's Summary

2067 was the year I died for the first time. It was painful. Had I known how often I'd be expected to die over the next several millennia, I might have made a stronger effort to stay dead. The year actually started off rather nice. I finished my PhD in high energy physics and was promoted to lieutenant commander in the United States Air Force. My first posting after the promotion was to the Lunar One Air Base where I worked with my father, Dr. Robert Kimbridge, on "The Project". "The Project" was our name for a VASIMR Ion Drive interplanetary space craft that used thorium LFTR reactors for both shielding and power. Capable of a sustained point-one G of acceleration, our prototype was expected to make the Mars run in less than a week. By the end of November the ESX Arizona was ready for her first trial runs and I was her pilot. History has an odd way of repeating itself.

Uncounted millennia ago the uncreated Creator reached forth a hand and touched a series of disparate universes. The touch set in motion ripples that created life in the Creator's image...a life that was self-aware...a life that aspired to be more than it was...a life that sought to create in its own right. Love and fear walked hand in hand. Thus the stage was set for an epic conflict that would span the universes. These are the adventures of one brave soul and her quest to protect all life. These are the Catherine Kimbridge Chronicles.

Poor story

Oh, what a miracle that every problem and challenge is cured by an alien AI. The main character is flat and boring.

Great book, shame about the narrator

I originally read the Kindle version and purchased it in audio format but, Alexis Cruz as a narrator, no thanks.

He has two issues that I noticed right away. Firstly he reads too fast to allow you to fully grasp the concepts and story. I tried to slow it down to 75% but even this did not work well.

Secondly, he cripples some words and spoils the story because they are so obvious. How on earth can you say the word qubit wrong. He pronounces it kibit and it sounds stupid.

What a pity because I really enjoy the series. Very important to get the right voice actor for a book.

I gave it 4 stars for the story and deducted the 5th due to bad narration.

Slow down!!!

If you could sum up Inception in three words, what would they be?

interesting

Any additional comments?

Slow down! The narrator rushed through the story at such a pace it made it hard to follow.
