Publisher's Summary

In Semiosis, debut author Sue Burke's character-driven audiobook of first contact, human survival hinges on an bizarre alliance. 
Only mutual communication can forge an alliance with the planet's sentient species and prove that mammals are more than tools. 
Forced to land on a planet they aren't prepared for, human colonists rely on their limited resources to survive. The planet provides a lush but inexplicable landscape - trees offer edible, addictive fruit one day and poison the next, while the ruins of an alien race are found entwined in the roots of a strange plant. Conflicts between generations arise as they struggle to understand one another and grapple with an unknowable alien intellect.

Great tale of human survival.

Truly you are reading a great book when the end sucker punches you in the face and cause you wanted more. That's how I felt with this novel.

Brilliant!

I loved everything about this novel. I also always like to listen to Daniel Thomas May read dialog and he was a good choice. If this debut novel does not win awards I will be surprised. I recommend it.
