Publisher's Summary

Space is vast and untamed, and it holds many secrets.
Now two individuals from opposite ends of settled space are on a collision course with the darkest of those secrets, even as the world threatens to explode around them.
The year is 2322. Humanity has expanded into the stars, inhabiting over 100 worlds across a third of the galaxy. Though thriving as never before, they have discovered neither alien life nor the key to utopia. Earth struggles to retain authority over far-flung planets and free-wheeling corporations while an uneasy armistice with a breakaway federation hangs by a thread as the former rebels rise in wealth and power.
Alexis Solovy is Earth Alliance royalty, her father a fallen war hero and her mother an influential military leader. But she seeks only the freedom of space and has made a fortune by reading the patterns in the chaos to discover the hidden wonders of the stars.
Nothing about her latest objective suggests the secret it conceals will turn her life - not to mention the entire galaxy - upside down. But a chance encounter with a mysterious spy leads to a discovery which will thrust Alex into the middle of a galactic power struggle and a sinister conspiracy, whether she likes it or not.
When faced with its greatest challenge, will humanity rise to triumph, or fall to ruin?
Aurora Rising is an epic tale of galaxy-spanning adventure, of the thrill of discovery and the unquenchable desire to reach ever farther into the unknown. It's a tale of humanity at its best and worst, of love and loss, of fear and heroism. It's the story of a woman who sought the stars and found more than anyone imagined possible.

I'm having real trouble listening to the narrator of this book (Pyper Down)...the character parts are read really well but the rest of the book is delivered with the interest and depth of a text-to-speech converter....I will give it a few more chapters but I might have to end up buying the paperback book and reading it myself.

Mills and Boon in space.......

Basically a romance sci-fi. Plot moved slowly. lots of time spent on emotions and describing the look (of longing/etc etc) in someone's eyes. Besides that it's wasn't terrible.
Oh sounds like sirie (computer voice) is reading.
