Publisher's Summary

The An’Atee: a star-faring civilization so peaceful it does not even have a military.

The Harbok: a star-faring civilization that shoots on sight and refuses to communicate with anyone.

Scouts from both civilizations encounter each other in the skies over Earth. Greg Hamilton, a retired special operations soldier who is minding his own business, stumbles into the detritus of that meeting.

She struggled for each word. “No...hospital.”

He reached a hand out and caressed her cheek. “Of course you’re going to a hospital. I’ll be as easy on you as I can, but we can’t delay.”

Visibly gathering strength from somewhere, she lifted blue eyes to look directly into his own. She spoke slowly and clearly, “I...am...not...of...this...Earth.”

Though he knows nothing about aliens or space travel, Greg knows firsthand the ugliness of war. Rather than fight a war, he chooses to end a war. To begin the process, he has to keep an injured An’Atee pilot, the sole survivor of the encounter, alive long enough to get her back to her own doctors. If he plays his cards right, though, saving her might include a ride into space.

Great Story

If you are a pilot or a space nerd you will probably love this book. Lots of details about the characters’ process of flying airplanes and spacecrafts. Sometimes it became a bit much for me and I just wanted to get on with the story. The story concept was great, the writing could use some polish. That said it was good enough to keep my interest and I was disappointed when it was done, wishing the next book was done. The narrator did a great job and was a big part of why I kept listening.
I would recommend this book.

Good premise poor execution

The author spends way to much time rehashing the characters doubts and ethical concerns. The first round of the discussion with the alien was enough. Have the character make a decision and move on. The author reveals the doubts the character has and his hen rehashes them with the alien and then rehashes them again with his friends and round and round it went for over 90 minutes.

Pretty good story, but...

Pretty good story, but when the narrator takes an inbreath you hear it pretty well. A very annoying sound, and there is a lot of them.
