Publisher's Summary

After the passage of two decades, the Omnians discovered a second, critical clue about the Nua'll, humankind's enemy, while investigating Celus-4, the home world of the intelligent, canine-like aliens, the Dischnya. 
This striking discovery, combined with the final broadcast of the Nua'll sphere at Libre, prior to its detonation, gave Alex Racine and company the means to narrow the search for the Nua'll home world. 
Alex has a consuming desire to locate the point of origin of the Nua'll before another gigantic sphere arrives to destroy more colonies. The first sphere's incursion into the Confederation burned billions of humans to ash. 
Six scout ships are constructed by the Omnians and crewed by SADEs, self-aware digital entities, to search the stars along a narrow path defined by the two clues. 
During its search, a scout ship, the Vivian, is captured by an alien warship in a faraway system that the SADEs dub Vinium. The two ships, locked tightly together in a form of electronic warfare, achieve an impasse. 
The scout ship calls for help, and Alex Racine receives the strange message. According to the SADEs, the aliens aboard the warship appear to be plant people. 
Rescuing the scout ship presents Alex and his companions the opportunity to meet the plant people, the Vinians, on their home world. It leads the Omnians to one more incredible discovery about the Nua'll, which, unfortunately, proves Alex's worst fears.

A Fun Read

Alex Racine and the Omnians are still hunting for the Nu’all. An Omnian scout ship has been captured by a ship from a star system called Vinium. The ship contains a new life form and Racine attempts to communicate with the plant-based life forms.

The book is well written. I have been following the series from the beginning; this is book ten. The characters are now like old friends to me. I continue to be fascinated by the SADE (Self-Aware Digital Entities. Each of the alien species has been intriguing. The book contains some action, humor, curiosity and a love of exploration. I cannot wait for the next book in the series.

The book is just over fourteen hours. Grover Gardener does a super job narrating the series. Gardener is one of my favorite narrators. He has won so many awards over the years. One was Best Voice of the Century in 1999 and another was 2005 Publishers Weekly Audiobook Narrator of the Year.

The books were starting to feel a little "cookie cutter" with how great and wonderful Alex is, doing the same thing over and over again. This one started out that way but then moved on to continue the actual storyline that got me interested in the series to begin with. Excited for the next book!
