Summary

A little blue world, the third planet from the sun. It’s home to seven billion people—with all manner of faiths, beliefs, and customs, divided by bigotry and misunderstanding—who will soon be told they are not alone in the universe. Anyone watching from the outside would pass by this fractured and tumultuous world, unless they had no other choice. Todd Landon is one of these people, living and working in a section of the world called the United States of America. His life is similar to those around him: home, family, work, friends, and a husband. 

On the cusp of the greatest announcement humankind has ever witnessed, Todd’s personal world is thrown into turmoil when his estranged brother shows up on his front porch with news of ships heading for Earth’s orbit. The ships are holding the Nentraee, a humanoid race who have come to Earth in need of help after fleeing the destruction of their homeworld. How will one man bridge the gap for both the Humans and Nentraee, amongst mistrust, terrorist attacks, and personal loss? Will this be the start of a new age of man or will bigotry and miscommunication bring this small world to its knees and final end?

I enjoyed the narration of Steve Connor, he brings the characters and this plot to life and together. A great listen

Todd is happily married to Jerry, and a good life. All changes when with the arrival of a spaceship. The Nentraee are arriving from the distant planet of Benzee, asking for hospitality.
Todd finds himself caught between two worlds,

An alien species alters the future of humanity

Received as a free audio copy from the narrator, Steve Connor to review, this is and honest review. This thought provoking story surrounding the alien race called the Nentraee, whom have lost their planet they once called home and are in a desperate search for a world to settle and their fleet of ships won't survive forever. Humanity has always wanted to not be alone in the vast universe, they just didn't expect an enigmatic species to show up on their doorstep. It brings about a unique situation as both humans Nentraee find a path forward that both species can benefit from the shocking revelation. For Todd Landon, his average life of marriage, work and friends is altered with the arrival of the Nentaree as he becomes embroiled in a web of politics and a complex alien culture he doesn't fully understand and her could never imagine he would lose his husband and friends Jerry in and attack committed in fear, forcing Todd to look at his future in a new way. And gaining a new and poignant meaning in his friends and family. A beautifully written series beginning inhabited with memorable characters, highly recommended.
