Noa's Ark: Archangel Project, Book 2 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
First contact didn't go as planned.
Time Gate 8, one of humanity's portals between the stars, has been overrun by a mysterious alien intelligence, and the planet Luddeccea is now cut off.
Haunted by those she left behind, Commander Noa Sato is on a desperate mission to save her homeworld. Navigating the ancient Ark, she seeks a hidden gate that will transport her ship to Earth and the Galactic Fleet. But the Luddeccean system harbors dangers, and so does her crew.
The only crew member she completely trusts is James Sinclair, but he doesn't trust himself.
James isn't the man he once was. He has a hunger that is never sated, kills without regrets, and is fitted with extraordinary augments he doesn't remember getting. Can James control his augments, or will they control him?
In a future where almost all humans are augmented, James' answer and Noa's mission will determine the fate of the human race, and the enemy is already within the gates.

Noa and her crew aboard the Ark are doing their best to survive and get to the secret Time Gate hidden within the Kanakah Cloud in order to summon help from the Fleet. What is happening on Luddeccea is as bad, if not worse, than the atrocities committed by the Nazis. James is more important than he should be to her... And at times he really creeps her out. Who is he really? What is he? He resembles her dead husband more than is believable. She can't imagine life without him though, especially since her brother Kenji betrayed her. Why did Kenji turn her in to be sent to a concentration camp? Did he realize what he was doing? Can they repair the ship enough to fulfill their mission? Or will they be caught and turned in? What exactly is the Archangel Project? And how is she involved? Shouldn't she know? What does it have to do with James? Who can she trust?
This author has a good mix of characters, and it's not all serious and gloomy, there is irony, sarcasm and lightheartedness which contrasts the darker themes. I particularly like the mix of ages and genders, the feisty 'grandmother' is one of my favourite characters.
To me a good story is more important than the editing or polish of the book. The author sometimes does not describe much detail in the writing, in style of leaving most things up to the reader's imagination, however, sometimes the description is very detailed; when this change happens this throws me out of the story and I feel frustrated, when a character or object is suddenly not where I imagined it to be. I do not know much about writing, so when I come on these or other issues I suspect the is flaw in this reader rather than the writing!
It might feel a bit practicable to some readers, but that is sometimes an unfortunate byproduct of doing a lot of reading. I contract that with the knowledge from the authors other books that no character is safe.
This is one of the most enjoyable stories I've read.
If you're not sure, take a chance.
The author does an excellent job of creating a believable Sci-FI universe with many of today's issues such as AI, electronic personal communication, racism and fundamentalism as a backdrop. I found the story line believable, compelling and entertaining. It was so good I would finish a book and buy the next one immediately. I will continue to read this authors works as I am very impressed. This review will be added to all 3 stories in this series.

I would have thought that if humankind has developed all this advanced technology and uses their brains with so much input that some believes or motives would have to change too. Or maybe not, and this would be the downfall of humanity.
So, the archaic behaviours like racism (what does it matter if you are a “throwback” when you can change or select your genetics? And wouldn't it be seen as something special rather than “mistake”?) or the derogatory behaviour against bots (you have created them why feel like you need to diminish them?) has left me with too many questions.
All these good points to tackle in a book feel “old-fashioned” in the year 2400-something.
Though the core point, “what defines human” is nicely approached. Free will, love, compassion. But I would also add greed and forgiveness. Let's see how all this ends in the next book....
