Publisher's Summary

Civil war looms in the Bobiverse in this brand-new, epic-length adventure by Audible number one best seller Dennis E. Taylor.

More than a hundred years ago, Bender set out for the stars and was never heard from again. There has been no trace of him despite numerous searches by his clone-mates. Now Bob is determined to organize an expedition to learn Bender’s fate - whatever the cost.

But nothing is ever simple in the Bobiverse. Bob’s descendants are out to the 24th generation now, and replicative drift has produced individuals who can barely be considered Bobs anymore. Some of them oppose Bob’s plan; others have plans of their own. The out-of-control moots are the least of the Bobiverse’s problems.

Undaunted, Bob and his allies follow Bender’s trail. But what they discover out in deep space is so unexpected and so complex that it could either save the universe - or pose an existential threat the likes of which the Bobiverse has ever faced. 

Heaven’s River is the fourth installment in the blockbuster Audible Original Bobiverse series - which has sold more than one million copies.

Ray Porter IS Bob!

This is another smashing performance for Ray Porter as our favourite Von Neumann probe, Bob.
This addition to the bobiverse answers some questions but also asks a bunch more. I couldn't stop listening and if you love the bobiverse I'm sure you'll love this too.

Another fantastic experience

This book has been long awaited and it doesn’t disappoint. I thoroughly enjoyed the main story as well as the address of the inevitable philosophical problems of living in a society with almost infinite freedom and no means of government. Ray Porter’s voice acting was, as always, spot on, to the point that I cannot imagine Bob, or his descendants, with a different voice. I am looking forward to seeing what is in store for the future of the bobiverse, and for the Bob’s in general

Oh man, this was good! I waited for this book so long and I wasn't disappointed. The bobiverse is maturing. Looking forward to the continuation of the story.

Lives up to high standard of the bobiverse

It’s very hard to put down, and so sad that you can’t keep going once you hit the end.
Can’t wait for book5

just as good or better than the first 3!

really enjoyed the intrigue and mystery, although became obvious well before the reveal. and introduced a fascinating new species. not a literary classic, but thoroughly enjoyable

The Author needs to clone himself.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and this fourth edition did not disappoint. The author needs to clone himself so he can churn these books out faster. He is right up there with John Scalzi.

Not a bad time waster

Not a bad waste of time but I think I’m done with the series now, it lacks stamina unfortunately.
