Science Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

A culture clash between humans and aliens is brought to life in the narration of Janina Edwards and Ron Butler. On the island of St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, an interconnected community of families, friends, and lovers must adjust to the sometimes violent presence of the Ynaa, an advanced race of aliens who arrive on a mysterious research mission. Edwards and Butler both excel in their smooth Caribbean accents, bringing to life an intergenerational cast of characters with distinct personalities. The voices of the alien Ynaa are hushed, with sibilant “s” sounds and quiet whispers that the listener must sometimes strain to hear and understand. As tensions rise, characters struggle to maintain relationships while learning what it means to be—or remain—human.
