Publisher's Summary

It's the year 2277. For 50 years, Earth has received mysterious data transmissions from random locations in deep space. The streams include advanced technology, allowing humans to achieve faster-than-light travel virtually overnight. As we prepare to take our first tentative steps into interstellar space, we know almost nothing about our alien benefactors, and their motivations remain unexplained.
While completing their shakedown cruise, Captain Tom Prescott and the crew of the first Terran Fleet Command starship, TFS Ingenuity, stumble into a first contact situation. They learn that Earth is not the first civilization granted access to the stars before their time - and how this Faustian gift has inevitably led to centuries of interstellar war. Humanity's existence hangs in the balance as a powerful alliance assembles a preemptive military strike, believing it to be their only option to protect themselves...from us. Prescott and his small, initially unarmed starship must serve as our only line of defense. Ingenuity is our only hope.

The Good: This is an interesting way to look at first contact. TFS ingenuity is an action packed thrill ride. The space battles are not the sole focus of the story like many of the genre. I found the plot twist interesting and the characters fleshed out just enough. I did listen to this book straight through and enjoyed it very much. I am VERY eagerly awaiting the next installment. As always Jeffrey Kafer is an elite narrator. Well done again.
The Bad: Not much really. Just that this is a bit short of a story for my liking. There are many opportunities to expand on events in this story. I would like to have had another couple of hours of story. The cliffhanger at the end upset me as I had more lawn to mow and no sequel to listen to!
All things considered, a very good book.

Great Book!! Excellent story. WAY to short. WAIT..

What did you like best about this story?

nicely conceived plot and universe idea. Nicely done


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

Yes


Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this book but it is way way way too short. Particularly since there is nothing else supporting it. I recommend the author support his books with more titles before releasing a story that just cuts off...literally....mid stream. While I loved it I am very frustrated right now not knowing how long the wait will be or if I will even remember to see if new ones are out.
