Summary

To Sleep in a Sea of Stars is a masterful epic science fiction novel from the New York Times and Sunday Times best-selling author of the Inheritance Cycle, Christopher Paolini.

Kira Navárez dreamed of life on new worlds. Now she's awakened a nightmare.

During a routine survey mission on an uncolonized planet, Kira finds an alien relic. At first she’s delighted, but elation turns to terror when the ancient dust around her begins to move. As war erupts among the stars, Kira is launched into a galaxy-spanning odyssey of discovery and transformation. First contact isn’t at all what she imagined, and events push her to the very limits of what it means to be human. While Kira faces her own horrors, Earth and its colonies stand upon the brink of annihilation. Now, Kira might be humanity’s greatest and final hope....

Good BUT?

This is now the third sci fi book of this type I've listened to and I have to say it going to be my last. Although I did enjoy it the story is much the same as All The previous books I've had they are all a much of a muchness. The narrition is very good if your a sci fi person this will be one for you but if like me you've listened to a few sci fi books and you want something more I would give it a miss.
