    Description

    From the USA Today best-selling author of The Circuit Saga comes this harrowing science fiction short story set in his Children of Titan Universe. 

    After 25 years serving as the lone human Monitor of the Interstellar Ark, Hermes, Orion is scheduled to be placed back in his hibernation chamber with the other members of the crew. Knowing that he will die there and be replaced before the ship's voyage is over, he decides that he won't accept that fate. Whatever it takes he will escape Hermes and see space again, even if it means defying the regulations of his only friend - the ship-wide artificial intelligence known as Dan. 

    If you found yourself curious about what happens to the Hermes Ark after it leaves Earth at the start of Rhett C Bruno's Titanborn, you won't want to miss this story!

    Wow! Incredibly amazing short story

    I listened to this on a whim and I'm glad I did. An incredible short story about living and dying.

    A great Children of Titan short story

    An interesting look into "life" aboard an interstellar ark from the perspective of a lone caretaker.

    It would be great to see more stories about the arks and their missions!

    A satisfying Sci-Fi short story

    This is a well-done short story that packs in a clear scenario with layers of choices that must be made. There is a minimal number of characters but we still get the sense that they fit within a larger story. There is emotion and suspense, and dare-I-say, even a satisfying conclusion.

    I am not one who reads a lot of science fiction, but this taste of Rhett C. Bruno’s “world” makes me curious to try more.

    How is it possible?

    This audiobook totally amazed me.
    Why?
    So short and says everything!

    Great narration.

    No other author could have written this with such perfection.

    Best one hour audiobook ever, and only Bruno the perfectionist could have written a beautiful story so short that every word counts.

    Short but good

    I enjoyed this story. Not sure how it was related to Titian series. Worth the money. Narrator did a very good job. Would like more.

    Good Listen

    I enjoyed This Long Vigil in part because this is a subject I have pondered many times myself. It answered a question or two for me.
    I liked how clear and concise this story was written. I highly recommend this audio book. (Smile)

    Waiting for the full book

    💥💥💥💥💥 Five bangs.

    Picked this one up because of Titanborn. It's not RC Bray, but Justin Thomas James does a great job.

    Excellent short

    Great short story that really adds to the series. This Long Vigil tells the story of what life is like for the lone monitor of the Ark ship Hermes. Each monitor serves for 25 years before the job is passed along to another. It's a very lonely existence with no one other than Dan, the ship's AI, to keep you company. I prejudged this book thinking it wouldn't be as good as the rest of the series because of a different narrator. My judgement was wrong! Justin Thomas James did a fantastic job with the narration! He did a great job with the voice of the AI as well!

    Great Children of Titan short story

    Really enjoying the new Children of Titan audio series and this third short stories by Rhett C. Bruno. I enjoyed the contrast from book one and two. Really creative and fun SF. This is one of three short Stories that delve into historic events that the main books just mention. This is world building at its best for me. If you enjoy the Main books get these shorts that explores events and history from the perspective of the characters that were there.
