Description

Discover a shifting history of adventure as humanity clashes over whether to repair their ruined planet or luxuriate in a less tainted past. In 2267, Earth has just begun to recover from worldwide ecological disasters. Minh is part of the generation that first moved back up to the surface of the Earth from the underground hells, to reclaim humanity's ancestral habitat. She's spent her entire life restoring river ecosystems, but lately the kind of long-term restoration projects Minh works on have been stalled due to the invention of time travel. When she gets the opportunity take a team to 2000 BC to survey the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, she jumps at the chance to uncover the secrets of the shadowy think tank that controls time travel technology.

Professional reviews

"Nancy Wu narrates this time-bending, genre-hopping story. This audiobook is set in a future in which people can travel through time, live underground, and might just as easily have six tentacles in place of two legs. The two female leads, Minh and Kiki, are polar opposites, and Wu differentiates them perfectly. Kiki, the younger of the two, is full of verve and passion. Wu cranks the narration up an octave whenever she is speaking, and listeners will be caught up in her energy. Minh, a tentacle-legged character, is pragmatic and direct--but not without heart. As the audiobook progresses, Wu defrosts Minh's robot-like tone so that listeners root for her as well. This whip-smart audiobook is sci-fi gold. A.R.F. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
