Summary

Humanity's future has been disrupted and shaped by the mysterious alien Jackaroo. We spread to the planets they gave us, and we discovered the ruins of a dozen previous civilisations. All previous clients of the Jackaroo, all dead. So far we have escaped that fate - but we have also escaped from the Jackaroos' planets and begun to explore the galaxy.

The discovery of ancient spaceships and the unlocking of their mysteries has led to a new way of life. But humanity's failings and conflicts are always with us. A woman living a quiet, secluded life, with only her dog and her demons for company. The dissolute heir to a powerful merchant family. The laminated brain of the woman who led us into the universe. A policeman seemingly working for the Jackaroo.

All of these people are on the edges of a vast plan, one which will span decades and light-years. A piece of alien code has awakened, and the end of our species may be happening around us. And we may finally discover if the aliens really are here to help us.

cpuodent get to the end.

bad writing and weak characters, the reading was well done to a degree but the story seemed like nothi g rally happened. the characters seem strong and likeable at first but quickly swap into plot devices that need constant crutches to hold them up in any dire situation.

Listened to last 2 chapters twice

The conclusion of the story could serve as an introductory point for several more stories as huge and technically complex machinery is left no more than superficially explored, including a planet sized information library millions of years old. I would enjoy a more detailed perception of these fictional machines by AI fictional machines 10k years or so down the timeline

Solid but not quite as much fun as the first.

What I particularly enjoyed about book 1 was the genre mashup—police procedural, gangland warfare, first contact. This is much more a recognisable space opera. Narrator remains excellent in her own and British isles accents but US regional ones not her forte. If you liked the first this is a good follow-up.

Really not what I expected! Your audible is horrible!!

Did not like it at all. Btw why do you require fifteen words or more to submit a review?
