Description

An alien ship rests over Water Island. For five years the people of the US Virgin Islands have lived with the Ynaa, a race of superadvanced aliens on a research mission they will not fully disclose. They are benevolent in many ways but meet any act of aggression with disproportional wrath. This has led to a strained relationship between the Ynaa and the local Virgin Islanders and a peace that cannot last. A year after the death of a young boy at the hands of an Ynaa, three families find themselves at the center of the inevitable conflict, witnesses and victims to events that will touch everyone and teach a terrible lesson.

Professional reviews

"A culture clash between humans and aliens is brought to life in the narration of Janina Edwards and Ron Butler. On the island of St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, an interconnected community of families, friends, and lovers must adjust to the sometimes violent presence of the Ynaa, an advanced race of aliens who arrive on a mysterious research mission. Edwards and Butler both excel in their smooth Caribbean accents, bringing to life an intergenerational cast of characters with distinct personalities. The voices of the alien Ynaa are hushed, with sibilant "s" sounds and quiet whispers that the listener must sometimes strain to hear and understand. As tensions rise, characters struggle to maintain relationships while learning what it means to be--or remain--human. H.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
