Summary

Humanity put all its fading hopes in New Eden, a pristine star system 230 light-years from the ravaged Earth. But upon arrival, the would-be colonists encountered the Kresh - a diabolical alien race who quickly captured the human starship and tortured its inhabitants in hopes of learning the coordinates of Earth.

Street-smart Cyrus Gant managed to escape, crashing to the surface of a nearby moon terraformed by the Kresh and inhabited by primitive humans. Now Cyrus pursues a desperate hope bound up in a single boy, a prophesized psionic named Klane - already in the clutches of the Kresh. Soon Cyrus finds himself torn between tracking down this so-called savior and escaping back into space before it's too late. Yet as he gathers allies and firepower, he's desperate to find a way back to Earth and warn them of this alien menace… only to discover an even greater danger to the future existence of the human race.

The electric interstellar action that began in Alien Honor continues in Alien Shores.

Inventive aliens in a 3 front war with humanity

Large cast of characters for this sequel in the series. The author does a good job filling in the ground work from the previous book with few info dumps. Enjoyable story, but just a little heavy on narration and I found the Scotts/Irish accents off putting.

A more appropriate title than the first book.

Would you consider the audio edition of Alien Shores to be better than the print version?

I have a problem reading for an extended time and can't bear to put down a good book so I listen to my books. So I can't judge printed editions.

Would you ever listen to anything by Vaughn Heppner again?

It was because I had listened to Vaughn Heppner that I purchased this series. This series is not in league with the Starship series but it's still a solid four stars read. I'll try him again.

Have you listened to any of Jeff Cummings’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, I've listened to Jeff before and he really "makes" his books. I've been listening to audio books for nearly a decade and it didn't take long to realize that a poor narrator could ruin good authors. I've often wondered who selected the narrator so I could cuss them personal. If it's Jeff Cummings,it's kudos!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No chuckles, giggles, snorts or downright laughing. Likewise, no clouding up, no snuffling, one tear displays, short showers, or sustained find-the-Kleenex acts. It was still a good listen.

Any additional comments?

Even though I don't consider this one of Vaughn Hepplers best series, it still provides a satisfying read if you can keep up with the change of characters constantly added and deleted. Once you have that in hand, it's very good!
