Find out why everyone's talking about this ebook sensation that shot up the charts and sold 10,000 copies in it's first month and over 80,000 copies in its first year!

NASA discovered the alien ship lurking in the asteroid belt in the 1960s. They kept the Target under intense surveillance for decades, letting the public believe they were exploring the solar system, while they worked feverishly to refine the technology needed to reach it.

The ship itself remained silent, drifting.

Dr. Jane Holloway is content documenting nearly-extinct languages and had never contemplated becoming an astronaut. But when NASA recruits her to join a team of military scientists for an expedition to the Target, it's an adventure she can't refuse.

The ship isn't vacant, as they presumed.

A disembodied voice rumbles inside Jane's head, "You are home."

Jane fights the growing doubts of her colleagues as she attempts to decipher what the alien wants from her. As the derelict ship devolves into chaos and the crew gets cut off from their escape route, Jane must decide if she can trust the alien's help to survive.

Review quote

(Nalini Singh, NYT & USA Today bestselling author) "Jennifer Foehner Wells' highly recommended Fluency is a phenomenal story of first contact!" (Jason Weisberger, publisher of BoingBoing.net) "Okay, I am loving, loving, loving "Fluency" by Jennifer Foehner Wells. This sci-fi novel is flat out AMAZING. READ IT." (Brianna Wu, independent video game developer and cofounder of Giant Spacekat) "Author Jennifer Wells' writing genius comes from her vast knowledge of the highly technical subject matter and her ability to put the reader in the middle of it without losing him/her in technical jargon while creating characters that seem completely natural and believable." (Jean Fisher for Independent Publisher News) "FLUENCY is a great read for sci-fi fans and general readers alike. A smart concept, natural dialog and great character development make this a page-turner." (IndieReader)
