Publisher's Summary

On a desperate mission to save his entire race from extinction, Emissary Ruell travels to Earth equipped with his two most powerful bargaining currencies - health and longevity - hoping to convince the most powerful leader in the free world that collaboration can save both of their civilizations. Having no way to communicate directly with humans, Ruell must inhabit President Addison Hale's body to carry out his mission.
He quickly discovers, however, that humans are more complex and volatile than anticipated. Only after admitting defeat does he encounter Kirk Longshadow, a cop with nothing left to lose - and who might be Ruell's last chance.

Fascinating read, from big to little

Would you consider the audio edition of Emissary to be better than the print version?

Only listened to it, so don't really know.

What did you like best about this story?

The overall concept is compelling, to say the least. Certainly the concept has been visited in the past, but not to this level of nuance and complexity.

Have you listened to any of Jeff Hays’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, and he does a fine job here. Lot's of characters to explore, and he does so with a flourish.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not extreme, but it was compelling at times. Esp. the conclusion.

Any additional comments?

This book spans a wide range of concepts, which at first glance seem unrelated. Yet somehow it is pulled together with style and aplomb. I liked it a lot, and so will you! Recommended.

Beware of Unseen Aliens

Would you listen to Emissary again? Why?

Yes, it is worth reading/listening to over and over.

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed the clever way the alien entered Mrs. President.

Which scene was your favorite?

I think some of the emotions and sex scenes as experienced by the alien were really great.

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

No not really, it is way to long to listen to in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

A really fun and intense take on an alien take over.
