Kira Navárez dreamed of life on new worlds.

Now she's awakened a nightmare.

During a routine survey mission on an uncolonized planet, Kira finds an alien relic. At first she's delighted, but elation turns to terror when the ancient dust around her begins to move.

As war erupts among the stars, Kira is launched into a galaxy-spanning odyssey of discovery and transformation. First contact isn't at all what she imagined, and events push her to the very limits of what it means to be human.

While Kira faces her own horrors, Earth and its colonies stand upon the brink of annihilation. Now, Kira might be humanity's greatest and final hope . . ."

I'm gonna definitely read this one (synopsis looks heavely!) after the text version gets published! :)

Good luck with your 32 hr-long audio-fest! Hope the reader has a nice voice or else we're probably gonna see a lot of ire in his address. :)

Love the spoilers :) They make me wanna read it all the more!

Yes, I think so. Or at least that's what I still think after finishing it. Every time Jellies was mentioned I just thought.. say aliens, I will be less confused lol

Haha. Only 15 1/2 hours to go! I'm listening on 2.5 speed which is as fast as I can go and still understand.
Also, this convo between Itari and Kira saying "Kira here" "Itari here" is so annoying
