Publisher's Summary

Fleet sector bases close as the Fleet moves on. Everyone knows and expects it. But still, the announcement that Sector Base E-2 will close - although still 30 years in the future - breeds a mood of tension and anxiety.
So when Rajivk Agwu finds two pairs of shoes on a trail near Fiskett Falls but no sign of their occupants, his already heightened senses warn of danger.
Those on the base fare no better. Bristol Iannazzi, working on the notoriously delicate anacapa drive for a runabout, also notices something strange, something out of place, something dangerous.
Expanding the rich history of Kristine Kathryn Rusch's captivating Diving Universe, The Falls provides an exciting and crucial backstory for future events.

"Kristine Kathryn Rusch is best known for her Retrieval Artist series, so maybe you've missed her Diving Universe series. If so, it's high time to remedy that oversight." (Don Sakers, Analog)

Not the adventure I was expecting

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, this issue of the diving universe drags through anti-tech baggage of even minor characters for most of the plot. Breakdowns, poorly trained crew members and bad management decisions don't make a good adventure story for me.
Earlier stories had a sense of unbridled adventure, archaeology and characters optimisticically driven to understand discovered tech.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Have characters with a positive drive and depth of tech interest

Horrible Performance

I abandoned this book after a few chapters because the Narrator did such a lack luster reading that I could not pay attention. The characters are new, as is the setting. That would be OK if the Narration was even acceptable. I am surprised that this reading of the book was released. A computer voice synthesizer would have done a better job. I urge Audible to do some quality control with books like this. If I can't return it, I feel cheated. Free is the only price I would be willing to pay for such an inferior product. I bought it at the end of a series and I won't be alone in realizing that as a stand alone book, this reading only sells because people like the series and assume that the quality will continue. Please don't use sales techniques like that. My time and money are valuable to me.

Pedantic

Not up to her usual standard. Very dull at times and the narration did not help as it was very monotonous

Don't waste your money or credit

Gave up on this book because of the poor lifeless narration I really wonder how the hell this person got a job. Let's hope they get Jennifer Van Dyck to redo this book she's an absolutely great narrator.
