Unabridged Audiobook

Narrated By: Geoffrey Howard

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Duration: 8 hours 40 minutes

Summary:

It was just before Summertide, when the planet Quake would orbit closest to its sun, subjecting itself to vast tidal forces. It was to be the most violent Summertide ever, creating something that only happened every 350,000 years.

Access to the unstable Quake was supposed to be prohibited, but some very insistent travelers were determined to make the trip. Professor Darya Lang, who studied artifacts left by the long-vanished aliens called the Builders, had a hunch that she might find the Builders themselves. And Councilor Julius Graves was hunting murderers. Planetary Administrators Hans Rebka and Max Perry had no choice but to go to Quake, risking their lives to protect the others—and to learn, just maybe, the secret of Summertide and the Builders.

    I don't know if it's because of the monotone of the reader or if this story is truly this bad but I found myself only able to listen to this story for 30 minutes or less before I was falling asleep - not a good thing to do when driving. It seems to take forever to get the storyline moving and even towards the end was only marginally engrossing.
