The technology for interstellar flight exists through the power of Kinemet, but the key to unlocking its code lies in a thousand-year-old scroll left on Earth by an alien species.
When the ancient manual is stolen before a full translation is completed, Alex, Michael and Justine scramble to recover it.
Along the way, they stumble on an interplanetary conspiracy and uncover a secret that shatters their view of life and shakes the very foundations of our existence.
Unlike the first one, I didn't have an ebook version to read along with - so it made the book seem so long. The story itself was pretty interesting. Especially when it was focusing on Justine Turner - her storyline was my favorite. It's just that I really disliked the narrator, Dave Wright. He is not good at accents, and there are a hell of a lot of them in this book. There's a German accent he did, I turned it up loud enough for my husband to hear it one night. He actually looked like her was going to cry.
I am not willing to continue this series via the audiobook. Also, the blasted noise that plays at the beginning of chapters... I don't know what evil I've done in my life to deserve having to listen to that sound.
As for the story itself, I did enjoy it. It was a little over the place with the different characters, but it wasn't too hard to keep up with. I do recommend reading the series, but not listening to the audiobook version.
