Hugo, Nebula, Locus, and John W. Campbell Award winner Joe Haldeman has given the world such science fiction masterpieces as The Forever War and Forever Peace. Here he tells the tale of Carmen Dula’s six-year journey through space to the home of The Others, where she represents Earth in hopes of forging a peace accord. But due to Relativity, fifty Earth years have passed since Carmen left. And while humans have been busy constructing an enormous flotilla of warships, The Others possess power and technology far beyond anything Earth can imagine. Download and start listening now!

    " I found this book harder to finish. Like the first book much of the background description takes way too long. I found it difficult to engage in the characters. The whole attempt to explain the Others was incomplete to me. Many good story lines were left unfinished. "

    " Not as good as I'd hoped. Sometimes the story seemed sluggish, almost painfully so I thought. It helped pass some time but not one of the better novels I've read in recent weeks. "

    " Ended like a week of "Dilbert" where Scott Adams didn't know how to get out of the story. "

    " I absolutely loved Haldeman's Mindbridge and The Forever War. However, I do not think any of his subsequent books have come close to these. Every once in a while I pick up one of his new books to see if he has "recaptured" this genius. Not yet. "
