Delphi Promised: Targon Tales, Book 4 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
An immense asteroid field is on its way to deliver a torrent of pathogens into this galactic sector, guaranteeing the destruction of any civilization in its path. Cyann, astrobiologist and human-Delphian hybrid, is eager to join the research expedition dispatched to investigate.
Before they depart, she is called upon by the secretive members of a Delphian sect who believe that the elusive Tughan Wai, a supernatural creature of their own making, plays a part in this calamity. Her own genes hold the key to finding the Tughan and so she and her teammates are sent on a separate, secret mission to the outer rim.
She is not prepared when they are stranded among an alien species whose motivations are enigmatic at best. It seems that nothing can be done to stop the lethal asteroid as it barrels into a densely populated region. The mighty Tughan is not their salvation and so Cyann is forced to draw upon the mental aptitudes of her father's people and the intrepid resolve of the humans to find her purpose in this fight for survival.

Nova's no longer the star of this show - her daughter is. She's got the strength, the smarts, and even the stubbornness down pat, just like her mother. But Cyann is not without her flaws. A product of an interspecies union, she struggles with her identity to the point of feeling insecure and 'less-than' her peers. Thankfully, she's got an old friend - and adolescent crush - to show her differently.
Don't get me wrong, though. While the side-romance and family time is enjoyable, it does not detract from the real genre. This book is every bit the space opera/space exploration it's supposed to be. We're thrown into the story from the word go when Cyann and her team are warned by a strange visitor of an upcoming threat to their entire world. Plans are put in place to deal with this threat, and while doing so, new information comes to light about the Tughan Wai (first seen in Only Human - which, though you don't need to read first to enjoy this book, would certainly help if you did).
And now it's on. In true Reher fashion, everyone scrambles and fights to save what's most important to them. The mighty Tughan is not that mighty anymore, and Cyann finds herself struggling between sadly accepting this fact and doing her damnedest to restore him for the sake of their world. A new species is introduced into the culture-rich world of Trans-Targon and whether they're of an inclination to help or hurt is uncertain. Hard decisions as well as sacrifices are made, and through the pacing of this book, one can see that Reher has done their homework on space and biology.
I have rated this book five stars because the author has clearly (and successfully) done their best to provide a great and engaging read. For my own personal enjoyment, I would give this work four stars. I cannot pinpoint why or where, exactly, but for me, it did not have as much oomph as the previous works in the series. In any case, if you love space operas with a cup of adventure, a tablespoon of romance, and a dash of humour, I believe and recommend that you will enjoy this book, too.
parents , the story picked up from the childs storyline. She went on a totally different career line which is more likely then her entering the service. Still had face a problem line of her own.
Worth every penny
