The fight for the future begins. It's been a century of peace since Earth became a colony of an alien race with far reaches into the galaxy. Some die-hard extremists still oppose their rule on Earth, but Donovan Reyes isn't one of them. His dad holds the prestigious position of Prime Liaison, and Donovan's high social standing along with his exocel (a remarkable alien technology fused to his body) guarantee him a bright future in the security forces. That is, until a routine patrol goes awry and Donovan's abducted by the human revolutionary group Sapience, determined to end alien control. When Sapience realizes whose son Donovan is, they think they've found the ultimate bargaining chip. But the Prime Liaison doesn't negotiate with terrorists, not even for his own son. Left in the hands of terrorists who have more uses for him dead than alive, the fate of Earth rests on Donovan's survival. Because if Sapience kills him, it could spark another intergalactic war. And Earth didn't win the last one...

Professional reviews

"Exo soldier Donovan Reyes is portrayed by MacLeod Andrews in this thrilling sci-fi adventure. Andrews shines in this production as he portrays a plethora of characters, both human and nonhuman. As Donovan, Andrews employs a youthful, nonchalant tone, except in moments of stress when his words become sharp and quick. For most of the alien Zhree, a gritty, jagged, and low tone is used, reflecting their status as Earth's enemy. Throughout the narration, listeners can clearly identify changes in emotion and intention through Andrews's measured tone. In this performance of good versus evil, Andrews once again distinguishes himself as a talented narrator. V.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
