“The most innovative, exciting work of science fiction--maybe even book in general--that I've ever read. Snarky teenagers, twisted AI, plague on a spaceship, and a stunningly unique dossier storytelling template. A great start to an amazing trilogy and an entire PRODUCTION of an audiobook. All three are basically radio plays with their multiple (returning) narrators, SFX, and creative incorporation of abstract pages. If there was a series I'd recommend experiencing in both print and audio, it's this one.”Sam, Phoenix Books
