Publisher's Summary

Jupiter's moon Io has an extremely hostile environment. There are hot lava streams, seas of boiling sulfur, and frequent volcanic eruptions straight from Dante’s Inferno, in addition to constant radiation bombardment and a surface temperature hovering at minus 180 degrees Celsius.

Is it really home to a great danger that threatens all of humanity? That's what a surprise message from the life form discovered on Enceladus seems to indicate.

The crew of ILSE, the International Life Search Expedition, finally on their longed-for return to Earth, reluctantly chooses to accept a diversion to Io, only to discover that an enemy from within is about to destroy all their hopes of ever going home.

solid continuation

I want to see how the story turns out so this was kind of a necessary middle part. it's a solid continuation/ conclusion of the enceledous mission.

performance was mostly good but pronunciation of Chinese names was bad. I can appreciate that Chinese names arent easy but if you're saying a name hundreds of times in a story you should spend 2 minutes researching the correct pronunciation.

not as good as first two books in the series

No more scifi in the book, just human fighting amount them self, not my cup of tea.
no need read this one and the fourth book, first two will be good.

Degraded Mess

I did not like it. The book just swerved into nonsense. The Chinese Astronaut's parents are kidnapped by the Chinse and then taken to Guantanamo Bay where they are held prisoner by the U.S. to coerce her into murdering the crew and taking over the ship but the lifeform on Enceladus sends them to IO to warn them. I stopped listening at that point, it was just ridiculous.
