Publisher's Summary

The United States is ready to make a triumphant return to the moon, striking out boldly into the solar system in an attempt to regain the confidence of the heady days of the Apollo program. But a shocking discovery at Shackleton Crater brings the first Prometheus mission to an abrupt halt. Remote robots have uncovered human skeletal remains - and forensic analysis at NASA reveals the corpse to be over 700 million years old. As the news of this discovery is leaked across the universe - and a battle rages over the truth of our heritage - the Event Group is tasked to unravel the mystery behind this ancient visitor. Colonel Jack Collins once again leads a team of the world's greatest scientists and philosophers on a journey that will take the Event Group into the realm of space and confront one of humanity's most pressing questions: Could something - or someone - else be coming to finish a war that began almost a billion years ago?

Would you listen to Legacy again? Why?

I loved this book - there's enough intrigue and action to satisfy my tastes. I've become a devoted advocate of the Event Group series of books. My only problem is that some of the descriptions don't tell you what book in the series they are, in which case, I've just had to guess and plug ahead. Legacy sets up the foundation for any number of follow-on books to carry on the tale begun here, but so far, I haven't stumbled on a sequel. Hopefully there will be one forthcoming. I just finished the Carpathian book, which also leaves the foundation for follow up books, but who knows what such a follow up will be called, or when it will be released. These, to me, are the only shortcomings in the series, but they won't stop me from reading every Event Group book that David writes. I love the characters, the narrator, and the story lines.

What did you like best about this story?

An excellent combination of familiar characters, a space anomaly, and action!

Which character – as performed by Richard Poe – was your favorite?

As always, you just gotta love Colonel Jack Collins and Sarah Mackintyre (however they're spelled).

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

There's something out there, and it's coming this way . . .

Any additional comments?

I wish they'd make movies of this entire series! The characters and story lines are all gripping and exciting - what more could one ask in a movie?
