Heaven's War by David Goyer and Michael Cassutt

The following review I wrote was published in the December 2012 issue of Library Journal. 

Goyer, David S. & Cassutt, Michael. Heaven’s War. 12 CDS. Unabridged. 14 ½ hours. Books on Tape. 2012. ISBN 9780307934482. $50.00

Goyer and Casseutt’s book Heaven’s War is the second book in the Heaven Shadow series.  Starting where the last book left off, two groups of scientists on opposite sides of the world are abducted and transported to Keanu. They must figure out how to survive on this alien habitat, discover why they were brought there, and why friends who were dead on Earth are suddenly on Keanu alive. Set in the not too distant future, this story has all the elements of a hard science fiction story. Narrator Joe J. Thomas does a wonderful job portraying a variety of characters from gravely voiced Harley Drake to smooth talker Dale Scott to Russian linguist Valya Makarova and many more. Recommended for fans of space science fiction.
