With a lasting peace established between Earth and Baltan mediated by the growing alliance with the mysterious Szzzyyyxx, a new chapter in human history begins. But in the midst of this, the Szzzyyyxx Mother requests Sally's help with a mystery. Two Szzzyyyxx vessels have disappeared in the far reaches of their space. Sally and Ian plan a controversial rescue mission with the first of a new line of experimental ships. They arrive in the region to discover a fold that doesn't appear to go anywhere. On closer inspection, however, they find evidence of a black hole and a strange world that defies understanding. Through the use of a machine established in eternity, The Szzzyyyxx have teleported to Earth in the 1960s. There, captured by the KGB, they unwittingly help a rogue agent rise to power and dominate the Earth. But the power he uses to do this opens a door to something far worse. With their own past erased, Sally and her crew must rebuild history and defeat an ancient and universal evil.

This has been a great series
Love this story!
I am really enjoying this latest installment in the story. I definitely recommend this audiobook to anyone looking.
Good, but could've been better
Throughout these books the Author takes the time to construct elaborate characters and relationships in a great sci-fi universe. But then, after getting to know and love all the characters, he fundamentally takes away and changes some of the greatness he worked so hard to establish. In the last episode of the last book! It's akin to "and then they woke up from the dream" ending we all have grown to demise. I just really hated to see the way everything changed last minute.
Update: the epilogue was horrendous. I loved this story up until then. The author feeling he needed to correct his own story in the "11th hour" as he stated just ruined the whole story.
