Humans are finally ready for spaceship travel using FTL, and they are planning to visit earth and see if it has recovered from the disasters that have declared it unlivable. They get to pay a quick visit and find that what something they left behind has grown and thrived upon Earth.
This book is the answer to Progeny, by the same author, and it shows the other side we missed in his previous book. Both can be read independently but having the information from Progeny adds a deeper dimension to this one.
The story, though, does not end here, and I hope Perreault will provide a continuation, since this is a very promising plot. Overall I liked the book , although It feels quite short and just as a bridge to the really important action.
The narrator does a good job but I would have appreciated a bit more variation. About the audio production, I would like to mention the very loud beeps from the ship’s computer that suddenly startled me. Something a bit lower and more subtle would have been better.

My name is Elena. Since I was a little child I loved science fiction and fantasy, and I can’t resist a good novel. In 2015, while wait I started to listen to audiobooks and I discovered the pleasure in being able to read while doing my daily tasks, so there’s always an audiobook playing on my phone. If you see me with my Bluetooth headphones on, please be gentle, I get easily startled.
I live with my boyfriend, which I met during my six-year stay in Belgium, four cockatiels, eight lovebirds, and a hamster in Madrid, Spain; and I like to spend my free time knitting and sewing while listening to audiobooks.
