From the ocean's emerald depths, where whales and adapting humans live in harmony ... to the rigors of inter-dimensional travel, the universe is order and laws; the universe is hierarchies, evolution, and space...Now a young pilot with a new bionic heart, a man from a plague-ravaged world, and a beautiful diver from the sea are about to discover that their destinies - and their souls - are entwined. A voyage to a distant planet, a message in a crystal, an accident, and a love affair have suddenly cracked open the known order of the Universe. Two women and a man are caught up in a mystery, and now they are changing every world they travel in, and every life they touch!
In order to pilot a starship for intergalactic travel, Laenea has recently received surgery to reengineer her body to allow her to stay awake during the journey. This leaves her estranged from her crew, who must be put to sleep for the trip, but she finds it equally difficult to find her place among the other pilots. Narrator Rachel Evans' voice settles into a warm rasp that unhurriedly conveys the drama and action of this science-fiction adventure. Her fluid pacing weaves together the various characters and plotlines effortlessly and ends on an expansive note that will leave listeners gratified.
