Publisher's Summary

Humanity isn't all they left behind.
Two years later, the world lives in fragile peace. But a clandestine search has begun...and a clock has started ticking.
Two years after first contact, Astral forces have established their fragile kingdom around the globe. Motherships occupy the cities. Shuttles patrol the lawless outlands. The pacifist class of Astrals known as Titans assist humans in running their alien empire while bloodthirsty Reptar peacekeepers ensure that order is kept. And unseen in the ships above, a third class of visitor calls the shots - the unseen Divinity, worshipped and feared by citizens in equal measure.
Meyer Dempsey sits on his plinth as Viceroy of Heaven's Veil, on the old site of Vail, Colorado. As with other Viceroys in the eight other world capitals, humanity's remains revere Meyer almost as a god. But below the surface, both colonies and outlands have begun to crumble with unrest.
Until now the rebellion has been quiet. Now desperation bubbles as they learn the Astrals have begun digging for an ancient device buried beneath the glowing blue Apex at Heaven's Veil.
But twin truths of the forthcoming alien war (or a possible alien apocalypse) have dawned at Benjamin Bannister's facility in Moab, sending plans into action: The Astrals have lost what they hoped to uncover.
And humanity's only chance is to find it first.

Great Read!

Love it. Meyer rocks! Although Piper has become annoying, the story carries on well.

I enjoyed this one the least out of the 3 so far.

the Storey dragged a great deal more than the previous ones and seem to lack the Punch that they had before. I thought the characters started to become a bit silly and the plot seem to wonder too much. overall I was quite disappointed.

Does not turn to religion

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

the book as quite a slow tempo much like the previous two ..once again it is more about internal politics then alien invasion..but please note the review pointing out religon as a main focus point is very misleading..there is all most no talk of religion only a few parts in the contest of how some religious fundamentalists view an alien invasion and religion does not play a role in this series of books ..but dont expect much of aliens either

What about Ray Porter’s performance did you like?
