Sean Williams and Shane Dix, co-authors of the popular Evergence trilogy, have joined talents again in Echoes of Earth, the story of a crew of engrams (electronic duplicates of real crew members) aboard a survey ship that discovers advanced alien intelligence. The engram crew is one of many sent throughout the universe to look for life. After centuries of searching, the engram crew of theFrank Tipler watches as huge orbital towers are built around a remote planet's equator by strange spindle-shaped entities. Upon further inspection by engram Peter Alander, he finds the towers contain miraculous gifts from a benevolent alien race, from a faster-than-light ship to a map of the universe to immortality. But when Alander takes the ship and returns to Earth with the great news, he finds Earth gone.
