Publisher's Summary

Starhopper was humanity's first interstellar probe. It was designed to search for intelligent life beyond the solar system. Before it could be launched, however, intelligent life found Earth. The discovery of an alien light sail inbound at the edge of the solar system generated considerable excitement in scientific circles. With the interstellar probe nearing completion, it gave scientists the opportunity to launch an expedition to meet the aliens while they were still in space.

The second surprise came when Starhopper's crew boarded the alien craft. They found beings who, despite their alien physiques, were surprisingly compatible with humans. That two species so similar could have evolved a mere 12 light years from one another seemed too coincidental to be true.

One human being soon discovered that coincidence had nothing to do with it....

    "I enjoyed the narrators cadence."

    was captivating until the end. I felt the author grew bored and wrapped it up just to do so. Overall, meh.

    Story
    "A bit unsatisfying."

    This would have made a great novella. As a novel, it lacked depth; characters, story line, dispassionate narration, you name it. I'm use to some very good narrators among audible's offerings. This one sounded listless and 'phoned in'. No variation in the voices whatsoever.
