Publisher's Summary

When Earth is rocked by evidence that extraterrestrials may have seeded human DNA throughout the universe, a one-way expedition into deep space is mounted to uncover the truth. What linguist Meg Dupris and her crewmates aboard the Earth ship Damocles discover on Didet - a planet bathed in the near-eternal daylight of seven suns - is a humanoid race with a different language, a different look, and a surprisingly similar society. But here, it’s the "Earthers" who are the extraterrestrial invaders, and it’s up to Meg - a woman haunted by tragedy and obsessed with the power of communication - to find the key to establishing trust between the natives and the newcomers. In Loul Pell, a young Dideto male thrust into the forefront of the historic event, Meg finds an unexpected kindred spirit, and undertakes an extraordinary journey of discovery, friendship, and life-altering knowledge.Told from both sides of a monumental encounter, Damocles is a compelling novel about man’s first contact with an extraterrestrial race.

Predictable.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No, there is nothing new in this book. It is predictable, and a bit boring.


How could the performance have been better?

Personally I found her voice high pitched, and irritating. It was unpleasant to listen to. The character acting was bad. Strange choice for an audio book.


Any additional comments?

I love sci-fi, I read and listen to a lot of it. This is not worth your time.
