Science Fiction • 21.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

On a spaceship operated by artificial intelligence, a special agent, a doctor, a pilot, and a robot come out of cryogenic sleep upon arriving at the edge of the known universe. There they find Earth's first deep-space colony, Paradise-1, surrounded by dead and dying spacecraft. What happened? Laurel Lefkow brings a sophisticated blend of urgency, terror, and good-old-fashioned never-say-die moxie to this mash-up of speculative medical horror and sci-fi psychological drama. Lefkow is excellent at finding the strength, humor, and tension in the main characters' dialogue, especially in the voice of Rapscallion the Robot. There's also plenty of sprawling world-building. And listeners who enjoy this should stay tuned--it's the first in a new trilogy. B.P. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
