Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Maria Snyder returns with a compelling new sci-fi series. Perfect for fans of Star Wars and Poison Study.

A 2019 PRISM Award Winner: Young Adult Category

Year 2471. A new discovery. Those three words thrill my parents - the galaxy's leading archaeologists - but for me, it means another time jump to a different planet. One so big, my friends will be older than my dad when we arrive. And I'll still be 17. Thanks, Einstein.

I really can't blame Einstein, though. No one expected to find life-sized terracotta warriors buried on other planets. So off we go to investigate, traveling through space and time. With my social life in ruins, I fill my days illegally worming into the quantum net - the invention that allows us to travel in space. Of course the only person close to my age is a hot-but-pain-in-the-neck security officer who threatens to throw me into the brig.

But when one of the warrior planets goes silent, we have bigger problems on our hands. The planet's entire population might be dead. And now my worming skills, along with a translation of an ancient alien artifact, might be the key to finding out why. But my attempts to uncover the truth lead to the discovery of a deadly new alien phenomenon and also alert those who wish to keep it quiet. The galaxy is in real danger, and time is not on our side....

A pause-resisting story of courage and determination in the face of the unknown.

"Smart, witty and full of heart, Navigating the Stars had me hooked from the very first page!" (Lynette Noni, best-selling author of Whisper and the Medoran Chronicles)

Kazablanka

Simply outstanding. Best book I have "read" in a long time. The performer was also perfect in the role. Would thoroughly recommend this to anyone.

A ripping yarn!

Fast paced, with a oh-so teenager-ish voicing to support the main protagonist, this is a whirlwind space adventure and a rollicking good listen.

Strong Start, Disappointing Execution

Had some strong themes, but the writing executed it poorly. Abandoned interesting concepts to follow a protagonist that acts inconsistently and does not develop in any meaningful way.

Alright space travel story

The story was alright, there are definitely better. The romantic relationship degraded the story and really didn't add anything. I wouldn't listen to it again

Wonderful

This a great story. I enjoyed it so much. I will definitely look forward to next book. The time dilation is a bit hard to follow but congrats on doing it so well.

Amazing! Such an enjoyable book!

This is the start of what is no doubt going to be an amazing series. I’ve just pre-ordered book two. The story was finely completed by the narrator. I listened to the book in one sitting from start to finish - I loved it that much.
