Publisher's Summary

Environmental devastation has left Earth a wasteland, but an even more nightmarish fate looms if the woman known as H124 can’t stop an extinction-level asteroid from destroying the planet.

The Skyfire Saga 

On the run from a dangerous media empire, H124 places her hope in learning more about the Rovers, the last bastion of humans to embrace science as a solution to Earth’s ongoing environmental catastrophe. But with the planet under imminent threat from plummeting asteroid fragments, H124 must take on a perilous new mission: Find and assemble the pieces of an ancient spacecraft capable of pushing the deadly projectiles off course.

Her journey will lead her to the hurricane-ravaged remains of the East Coast, and onto the brutal streets of Murder City, where she learns a startling secret about her own past. Death Riders and night stalkers prowl the badlands, but an even greater danger lurks above as H124 fights to build the craft that is humanity’s only hope for survival.

Great Story, Even Greater Performance!!

Emily Pike Stewart does an absolutely amazing job with this book! Her ability to convey action scenes is impressive. Her range of emotions, depth of character development, and vocal quality are outstanding! But the thing that stood out to me most was her ability to make the less action-driven scenes come to life. There is a decent amount of scientific discussion in this book as H124 and her friends attempt to gather some very ancient technology in hopes of stopping an asteroid from destroying the earth. Throughout these sometimes complicated and technical discussions, the narrator manages to keep energy levels high enough that this listener felt like he was a part of these planning sessions, the goal of which was no less than to save the world.

I listened to the first book in this saga and got hooked. So naturally I preordered this one and downloaded it the night it was released. The action scenes in the second installment are even more intense than in the original, with some truly disturbing scenes that are not for the faint of heart.

All in all, I loved this second chapter in H124's saga, and I loved this performance!
