Axis Crossing: Gate Ghosts, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The descendants of a fourth Earth colony ship, Destiny, successfully establish a foothold in unoccupied space. Naiad, the home world, is a frozen ball, but the colonists persevere and expand through wormholes to remote systems.
Navigating the time-space anomalies requires Axis-ships. The expensive vessels are constructed by corporations, and remote worlds are claimed by the companies for their valuable ores and gases.
The corporations and Naiads are at odds with each other, and their lives are made more complicated by the arrival of strangers in an alien ship.
To understand the nature of the unusual vessel coasting toward Beta Two, the director of operations orders the kidnapping of specialists from other mining worlds. Entire families are scooped up, but two siblings, Escher and Allie, evade capture.
Hiding deep below the domes’ surfaces, the siblings are befriended by the orphans of miners. The young mickies don’t possess identification chips or cids, which would identify them as citizens.
The gang of mickies and the siblings strike a deal to help each other. Each group is determined to reach Naiad. The mickies seek citizen status and freedom, and Escher and Allie want help rescuing their parents.
The beleaguered group’s hastily derived plans bury them in criminal complications. When all appears lost, a second alien vessel exits the dark. The hull is similar to the ship at Beta Two, and these strangers seek their enemies.

S. H. Jucha has a gift for narrative and his stories are perfectly paced. Never dragging, never rushed, and told with an economy of words Axis Crossing is a joy to read that leaves you eagerly anticipating the next installment. Bravo!! Well done Mr. Jucha, very well done indeed.
I never thought I'd say this about Jucha, but I don't see myself recommending this to anyone. You dropped the ball.
That pain was eased today when I downloaded Axis Crossing and a grand new adventure began with a whole new cast of friends!
It was wonderful just as I've come to expect from S.H. Jucha!
When the Silver Ships series ended without addressing this fourth expedition, I was disappointed and thought that we weren't going to be told about what happened to them, this book alleviates that fear, thankfully.

When I started to read Axis crossing and very soon realised it was connected to the original story, it gave me a very warm feeling as all your previous books had done.
I love the continuing story of the Sades and their new companions. This has cheered me up following a last difficult 16 months. Thankyou.
