A fun light read
This is book 5 in The League of Peoples. For the most part, all the books in this series are of the less than totally serious type. Oh, the protagonists get into trouble, there is mayhem and characters die, but still generally fun light reading.
This book is in the voice of Oar (as she always introduces herself, an Oar is an implement used to propel boats). Oar is a charming childlike, self-centered, beautiful, transparent (literally) woman who we met in book 1. She was not in books 2, 3, or 4.
Don't look for hard science in this series. It isn't like that. Read or listen to these when you want something light and entertaining.
There are quite a few humor gems. For example, top military council is made up of corrupt and incompetent people. One of the characters seriously complains that just a few hundred years ago, such people would never be put in charge of anything. :)

Another solid League of Peoples story
If you've read any of my other reviews, you know I like the League of Peoples series. Ascending has more humor than any of the others in the series that I've read, but you may have to read the earlier books to understand some of humor. Oar returns and stumbles her way through the entire novel saving the day. If you like a bit of science fiction and hope for mankind, start the League of Peoples series and listen to every book. Its a fun ride of astronomical proportions!
