Same but different

The story of First Contact is an old one, but the way it's told is different. Jeff Carlson does a fairly good job with a female main character but it's obvious from Vonn's reactions that the author is male.
The performance is good. But missing the other voices. It's all read in one voice.
The story of the aliens is interesting and enough different from stock to be interesting and hold my attention.
Worth the $1.99 I paid for it.

First person action story with unique sci fi first contact plot

I took a gamble on this mostly because I am intrigued about Europa... The first bit is a fast action shoot-EM-up and was a bit too much but as the story developed it became more creative and intriguing. The concept is first rate and highly imaginative concerning the life forms in Europa but the constant fast action detracts from the excitement of first contact. In a way it's probably more realistic in any case. I will probably read the next installment to see where the author takes the story. Overall, the imagination is first rate.

I listened to the audible book at 3x speed and found the narration pleasant and easy to listen and I would recommend the audible version.
