Description

Late in the 21st century, Earth receives what looks like an urgent plea for help from planet Proxima Centauri b in the closest star system to the Sun.

Astrophysicists suspect a massive solar flare is about to destroy this heretofore-unknown civilization. Earth's space programs are unequipped to help, but an unscrupulous Russian billionaire launches a secret and highly-specialized spaceship to Proxima b, over four light-years away.

The unusual crew faces a Herculean task - should they survive the journey. No one knows what to expect from this alien planet.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great! I could not put it down.

Real science fiction. Although it streches science, it was believable. I looked the story and the characters.

Agree with format issue

The story is fantastic, but it feels pretty dicey that the length of the audiobook INCLUDES over 40 minutes of book two preview. That feels extremely misleading. Those 40 minutes ARE NOT BOOK LENGTH

Great Hard Science Fiction

I loved this book. After two duds during the Shelter in Place this was a real reward. I've got to get the second one as soon as possible. Kind of like I Robot meets We Are Legion!! Wonderful. Every thing was excellent about it.

Uh...

Great beginning and narrative and slowly petered out into boring nothingness. Idiotic AI story so common these days. I'm not a fan of AI stories. They're just an excuse for authors to not develop real characters. No credible sci fi here. Stopped short of finishing book near the end.

Story is great, format is not

These three books are one story and cannot possibly stand on their own as in a regular series. In fact, they may as well have each finished mid-sentence for as much sense it made to split them where they did. They also clearly weren't split solely due to length either, since many Sci-Fi books are much longer. So this is another example of a publisher splitting a book up purely for profits which I think is shameful. It may seem unfair for me to "punish" the book/author with 3 stars solely for this reason, but it's my opinion that the author was either part of the decision or holds some responsibility for working with an unscrupulous publisher.
The story itself, however, when considered as a whole is pretty darn good!! It starts strong, the middle section is the weakest and the book really starts to shine in it's last third. It's a great combination of science, exploration, mystery and "first contact" and certainly entertains.
