Publisher's Summary

From the Amazon best-selling author - A Pinnacle Book Achievement Award Winner!
CassaStar was just the beginning...
The Vindicarn War is a distant memory and Byron's days of piloting Cosbolt fighters are over. He has kept the promise he made to his fallen mentor and friend - to probe space on an exploration vessel. Shuttle work is dull, but it's a free and solitary existence. The senior officer is content with his life aboard the Rennather.
The detection of alien ruins sends the exploration ship to the distant planet of Tgren. If their scientists can decipher the language, they can unlock the secrets of this device. Is it a key to the Tgren's civilization or a weapon of unimaginable power? Tensions mount as their new allies are suspicious of the Cassan's technology and strange mental abilities.
To complicate matters, the Tgrens are showing signs of mental powers themselves; the strongest of which belongs to a pilot named Athee, a woman whose skills rival Byron's unique abilities. Forced to train her mind and further develop her flying aptitude, he finds his patience strained. Add a reluctant friendship with a young scientist, and he feels invaded on every level. All Byron wanted was his privacy...

Wholesome Sci-Fi Adventure

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Most definitely because it's entertaining holding your attention from beginning to end.

What did you like best about this story?

The growth of the characters and their interaction with one another.

What does Michael Burnette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His cadence and methods make the telepathic and radio conversations distinct.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

Moving at a good pace the story doesn’t lose you in a vast wasteland of technical jargon but makes the elements seem real with talk of mind jumping and telepathy communication. The components of this sci-fi journey become believable through the author’s vivid descriptions.

I'm not a particular type about narrators, they seldom make a book terrible.....this is the exception to my rule.

Add to the Horrible narration an "award winning author" (really? according to amazon? who is the reader "amazon?) who doesn't really have much of a storyline and can't decide whether he's writing adult Sci Fi or YA Sci Fi where he can get away with immature storyline / characters, and amazon talked me into giving a truly awful story a chance. I even bought books 1 and 2 to give the author a chance to get better in the second book. WRONG!

I will never buy this author again. Both of these can go back to Audible with notice that I will never waste my time again on an author because amazon says "award winning".
