Publisher's Summary

His shipmates dead, star rigger Gev Carlyle is adrift in the Flux, the subjective hyperdimensional sea that carries ships between the stars. His lone companion, and sole hope for survival, is a suicidal catlike alien named Cephean. Only a compatible rigger team, their visions meshed in psychic unity, can safely harness the turbulent currents of the Flux - and Carlyle's ship is sailing inexorably toward the deadly maelstrom of the Hurricane Flume. For even a chance at survival, he needs Cephean's help. But the price for that is a complete merging of minds and memories. And Carlyle, at war with his own past, dreads that union more than death itself.

From the author of Eternity’s End and The Chaos Chronicles.

would make an awesome Special Effects movie

an upbeat story that is full of imagery that you could imagine seeing on a movie screen. It would be better than that Blockbuster blue alien flick that had great visuals but lean plot.

personally I really enjoy these novels based on space travel that's achieved through manipulating metaphors for hyperspace.

PS why can't the audible app capitalize beginning of sentences?

Not to listen with a headset

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone that can listen on speakers only.

What was most disappointing about Jeffrey A. Carver’s story?

Couldn't listen long enough to tell you.

What didn’t you like about Mirron Willis’s performance?

The alien character changed to such a loud voice that I couldn't listen to it with my headset. The volume kept going up and down constantly.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Couldn't listen long enough to tell.

Any additional comments?

I've been rather disappointed in my last few selections of science fiction, except for the Parasite Planet. The stories have been choppy and scattered. The names of the characters have been difficult to keep up with. I may have to change genre.
