Publisher's Summary

What lies on the dark side of the moon could change the course of humanity forever.
When a Chinese rover discovers an alien technology on the dark side of the moon, it is up to Richard "Rock" Crandon and his NASA team of scientists and engineers to devise a way to return before the Chinese and Russians.
Forced to deal with bureaucratic oversight and a complex team of personalities, Rock Crandon pushes his team to their limits.
With pressure mounting, the world is pushed closer to conflict and war as the NASA team finds itself seriously behind in the newly initiated space race. The future of mankind, its ideological and technological advances are at stake, as the world's super powers race to discover what lies on the dark side of the moon.
Who will get there first, and at what cost?

Tech savvy people beware

I stopped listening after ten minutes. This is supposed to be a book about technology, and it contains three howlers in the first ten minutes, including one in the first sentence. They were: "Oxygen in the atmosphere caught fire," "A species that had literally no culture" (followed by a member of that species giving a verbal command to prepare for battle.) And then the final straw: "The voltage must be less than one megawatt."

If these don't bother you, the writing quality seems fine, the narrator is good, and the story may be interesting.

Modern-Day Space Race Science Fiction

I liked the idea of the space race to the moon from the description and I definitely wasn't disappointed with my decision to purchase this book. The writing and the story really delivered a great listening experience.

The book begins with a Chinese moon rover being disabled by a powerful signal from the surface of the dark side of the moon. Analysis of the signal and it's strength leave only one possibility: An extraterrestrial source.
The three major space powers, China, Russia, and the United States begin a race to build a spacecraft and be the first to reach the alien artifact on the moon.

The book is full of science, espionage, engineering, and adventure. The powers must not only figure out how to reach the moon first but also how to prevent sabotage from one of the other powers.

Mark Boyett has been one of my favorite narrators. He has narrated several other books series that I have listened to and he was definitely another motivation to purchase this book. Great performance.

This book was good enough that I didn't want to put it down. I can't wait for the next book in the series.
