Publisher's Summary

Earth's days are numbered. Two very different women race to prepare for the battle to come. The future of Earth is in their hands.
One struggles to resurrect her ruined ship so she can navigate the politics at the galactic core in a desperate bid to recruit allies. The other strives to master alien technology to supply the forces of Earth with the tools needed to defend themselves against the ravenous Swarm.
Between them, Jane and Zara offer humanity its best chance at survival, but the odds are stacked against them and their best may not be good enough.

I want to swim with a Kuboderan!

Ahhh... That was so satisfying! Oh gosh... where do I begin? I loved this book so much!
We experience the story from several different POV's; Jane Holloway's of course, as she navigates through a political swamp of galactic proportion, Dr Alan Bergen, who simply doesn't have the patience for diplomacy, but is up to his eyeballs in special projects... We get Brai's story, and we see a lot more of Pio (I just loved that!).
Did you by any chance want to know what happened on Earth after Jane and the Speroancora crew left? Well then, this is the book for you! The Earthside part of the story is told by Zara Hampton (an awesome character, btw), who's father works for NASA.
Darcy is back as well...
Jennifer Foehner Wells weaves all the storylines into a wonderful tapestry as we meet several new species in the ever-expanding Confluence Universe... I can hardly wait to see what happens next!

Addendum: I've just finished my second helping of Valence, only this time, I listened to the audio version... I gotta say, Susanna Burney just simply nailed it! Burney had herself a pretty tough job as scene by scene, the perspective changed from human to alien, and back again. From Jane Holloway, to the young Zara, and then to Dr. Alan Bergen, etc... I loved listening to the book. The imagery evoked from Jennifer Foehner Wells' words as they rolled off Susanna Burney's tongue somehow gave the scenes an extra, richer texture. Now, I too want to swim with a Kuboderan!
