Publisher's Summary

Humanity is about to learn it isn't alone.

Zack Quick has been on the move for 10 years, hacking big corporations and exposing their secrets. Then he stumbles upon one of the biggest discoveries that will forever change the world - and possibly get him killed.

Kaylan Farrow is the pilot for Earth's most advanced spaceship, whose maiden voyage is supposed to take her crew to Titan, but newly released images from a deep space probe threaten to cancel the mission.

Kept secret for 60 years, the discovery of an alien signal forces a NASA pilot and a computer hacker to team up to investigate an alien structure discovered in the farthest reaches of the solar system.

The Star Shroud is the first installment in an action-packed science fiction thriller series. If you like space opera adventure stories with clever heroes, impossible situations, and chilling discoveries, then strap yourself in; you're in for a fun, nonstop thrill ride.

    "Great story so far!"

    I really like the characters and their continued growth into them and how that plays a role in the dynamic of the relationships with each other. Beware...

    "GOOD. WELL WRITTEN AND PERFORMED."

    I like the characters. Zack and the rest of the team. Superbly performed by Jeff Hays. Intrigues in space. Aliens, are they good or bad? Very interesting plot. I will continue this series. Worth the credit.

    Story
    "Confusing Characters"

    Story line somewhat predictable but the most annoying part is the difficulty keeping track of/ following characters do to similar names or games starting with the same letter---example Kat and Kaylen, Hicks and Hutchison--seriously!

    Story
    "Human Sci-fi basics at the the right pace!"

    Develops a character set easy to warm to right out of the gate. Sometimes jumps over physics issues but HEY its Sci-fi. staggering price on AUDIBLE but what's your going to do? Looking forward to book 2 ... I have faith :-).

    Story
    "Ended too soon!"

    I had this on pre-order, and finally got to listen to it this week.

    I think the overall story premise is interesting, of course it's been done before, so I was waiting on the 'twists' that we'd come across.

    I kind of liked the 'romantic' elements in here. Hicks and Caitlin, although I gotta say that the two names Katy and Caitlin together are pretty hard to wrap your head around. I personally as a beta reader would have asked the author to change one of these for distinction.

    Jeff's performance, flawless. He's so good at bringing people to life, and Zack was just hilarious at times, I could totally believe his thoughts, and the way he reacts and then goes on to do things. Great voices for all the girls as usual, with accents that distinguished each one from the other. Brilliant job from Jeff.

    The writing side of things, I do think the character interactions were good. Humour, play by play, they bounced off each other in such dangerous and close quarters. That was great writing. They're real and intentional. Zack and Caitlins' history is deep. This shows in all their actions and choices, even if they're not ready to actually move on and away from 'a possible future' I'm glad that they did. Because that would have been more cliche in my mind.

    The remote viewers and the Shroud is entertaining, and the aliens seem to have done all this with the best of intentions.

    I just think that although the mystery was there, by the time we actually got to be inside the alien structure, the book was almost over, and one reason why I think it was cut too short.

    This threat, this Zygen... more of. I don't listen to previews of the next book, because I find that just annoys me as I can't carry on. I am interested in the next one though and was glad I got to it, it still was entertaining with a good few twists on the original story tropes.

    Story
    "Good until it wasn't"

    two dimensional characters, pointless romantic plots that don't add anything to the story, neither action packed nor a thriller... bottom line if you want to be disappointed this is the book for you.
