Publisher's Summary

Endeavor

Since we first looked at the stars, there has been a silence, no signs of alien life, and no one who has tried to speak to us. It is an enigma that a long-dead scientist called the Fermi Paradox.

"Where are they?" A brave crew will take humanity's first starship, Endeavour, on an epic journey that spans light years and centuries to solve this mystery. As Commander Tom Hites and his crew searches amid long-abandoned worlds and ancient relics, the question they seek to answer becomes: "Where are they now?"

Erebus

The sparsely populated moon Io is destroyed in a terrorist attack. Hundreds are dead in the cataclysmic explosion. Thousands become refugees as the shattered remnants of the moon threaten the Jupiter Alliance. Billions throughout the solar system are wondering, "Where next?"

Those responsible must be found and brought to justice. The explorer ship Erebus is reassigned from its mission and sent to Jupiter to investigate this atrocity with Trent's international team onboard. And what Trent discovers among the relics of the alien Sleeping Gods will change humanity's place in the universe forever.

As a set, it was so so

The first book was great with the scientific exploration and Michael Kramer reading. There were some spots that it was odd but overall a good book. The second book didn’t seem to have any more than a passing mention of the first book, had no real science and the reader wasn’t nearly as good. The third book was just thrown in and wasn’t very good at all, although that might have been because I spent the whole time trying to figure out how it tied in to the other books. Overall I will give it three stars because the story and performance from the first book carried the load.

um... I'm confused

Apparently, the story takes place in the future; however, why do the characters sound like they're from 1800s England? I don't know. I'm going to keep trying. I'm only a couple of hours in - I will update when I'm done.

UPDATE: I tried, and I just can not take it. Every character sounds ridiculous. People just do not talk like this - it's distracting. it's hard to listen to, and it's actually getting me a little bit angry. It's a shame because I kind of like the story. I mean, it's hard scifi, and at times, my mind wanders off, but for the most part, it's a good story. It would be much better if the characters sounded realistic, like actual people and not cartoons. Unfortunately, I might have to return this.
