Publisher's 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.

Pretty good story but the narration was terrible!

So yeah this story was pretty good. Had me interested the whole way through! Only thing I had a problem with was that it was a bit confusing in some areas and so Paul could've done a better job at explaining some of the big points of the story, especially the ending. I was especially confused at the end as to what the origin of the creatures like Unlikely Worlds was (I don't know how to spell his species name as I have only listened to this book and have never seen it written. I thought Paul was trying to say that they were decendants of the Jackaroo or the Jackaroo were descendants of them but I mightve misheard. It was very confusing.
The thing I had the MOST issue with was the TERRIBLE narration. The woman who narrated the story put on accents for many of the characters and the accents were painfully bad. Especially the French one. She kept putting r's on the end of words that didn't have r's when she was doing the French and French-like accents. OH and OMG the tones she used when she was reading for Ada Mirange's character (again may be mispelt) was SO ANNOYING. She kept ending EVERY SINGLE SENTENCE in a high tone; like she would start off at a lower note and then go up and down, up and down, up and down in the middle of the sentence and then end the sentence going up in tone like a mix between the sound of a strong statement ending and a question ending. It's kind of hard to explain but when you listen to it you'll get it. It was sooooooo irritating. I've heard people give speeches like that in real life and it's AWFUL. How in the WORLD did she get chosen to narrate a book! Please God do not narrate any books ever again lady no offence but it's not your calling. At all.

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?
