Publisher's Summary

What they have lost, we must find.

The resistance has nearly been wiped out, its numbers reduced to a scant fraction of what they once were. Meyer has fallen. With hope nearly a memory, something must turn the tide of war.

A deadly weapon, known only as Thor's Hammer, brings promise of salvation. Now the scattered remnants of the human race must find the device and recover it before the aliens can discover its location. Because if the rampaging Astral forces beat them to the weapon, the fate of Earth will be sealed.

This relentless, pause-resisting tale of colonization and alien empire is the fourth in the Alien Invasion series by masters of story Truant and Platt, authors of The Beam, Robot Proletariat, the Dream Engine series, and many more.

Fight for hope. Search for survival.

    "Why oh why have you changed the narrator!!"

    The first three book are read by read by Ray Porter he was great but has been replaced by old father time why it is making hard to follow and listen too. Shame really it was shaping up to be an excellent series.

    "I won't be finishing this series"

    I have listened straight through up to the end of this book and I'm thinking I am no longer interested in this series.

    My reason is that the storyline is convoluted, meanders and I find it difficult to stay focused while listening. The differentiation of the characters is getting very muddled. Although the descriptive language used for various characters, their emotions and motivations are good, they don't connect me with the characters and situations any longer.

    I have listened on and on hoping to see some crescendo to a compelling momentum that would make we want to find out what will happen next, but the pace and storyline itself is so shallow, I find that the "payoff" at the end of each book now seems purely self serving in order to hopefully, (with little care form me now), to want to listen to the next book.

    I am very selective about which readers I will listen to and Kevin Pierce is one that I like a lot, but I feel he is just not the right reader for this work. Mr. Pierce's style is like a the words of a small child when he says, "Grandpa, tell me a story?" He's great for certain types of material, but not this one. Sorry Mr. Pierce. I know you are doing your best and I don't feel it's really your fault.

    One reason I started listening to this series was Ray Porter, who I always throughly enjoy listening to. He was such a perfect fit for these books that it overcame many of the short fallings for me with these works, but towards the end of the book before this one, I could see the effectiveness of this series to hold my attention was waining. Then with the switch in readers, I could see this was not going to go well. As with all acting, even the best performance does not make up for a poor script.

    Maybe others of you see this series differently, but I am done with this series.

    "Done with this series"

    If I had a dime for every time the story repeated itself in this book, I could take some meaningful time off. This book in the series actually repeated the same scene constantly. The story is being drug out, and not much of any story was told in this book.
    I loved the first book, second was still interesting, but I literally cannot tolerate this series anymore, because it is like going in a circle with the occasional change here and there. I'm done.

    "The book series started off great...but"

    I was hooked after the first book but not so much by the third. After this book I won't continue the series. I really struggled to stay interested but the story had so many twists and soooo much detail at every turn. This book should have been 4 hours max. I'm out.

    "Great story line but ......."

    Love the storyline & series, definitely makes me want to grab the next in line, but it could do without all the cussing. Occasionally to make a point is ok but not every couple of sentences

    "Dragging out"

    I really enjoyed the first two books. The third book was good as well, but began to be detailed to a fault. This fourth book confirmed my suspicion that the writers were just trying to drag out the story, and it got monotonous, so I'm going to hang it up. This series would have made 3 excellent books. I really do like the writing for the most part - it's just tooooo much.

    Story
    "Narrator, Narrator, Narrator"
    Where does Annihilation rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I am going to rate it in the series. I fell in love with the story and the PRIOR narrator, Ray Porter after listening for a very short time. Ray Porter made the first 3 books come alive. The ability to sit back and listen and just let the story float into your mind was wonderful. THEN book 4 and Kevin Pierce became the narrator...


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Annihilation?

    The most Un-memorable was Kevin Pierce as the Narrator. Unlike the prior narrator of books 1-3 of this series, you cannot let this story flow into your mind, you have to focus, pay attation and sometimes back up the story because you missed something due to how it is being read. I lost a lot of the story because of Keving Pierce.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Continued to use Ray Porter. Unless something happened behined closed door that we the listener is unaware of, a great narrator should not be changed in the middle of a series.


    Any additional comments?

    After listening to the first book and falling in love with the narrator Ray Porter, I used my credits to buy all of the books in the series. BAD MISTAKE.

    "Hate narrator. No character distinctions."

    Narrator's voice made completing story more difficult than if reading it myself. Once you know a narrator works, be consistent. What was his appeal other than he can read, really. Like videos this.medium is IMPORTANT. Realize this now before it's too late.

    "WTF! The change of narrator kills this series!"

    I was enjoying this series until whomever decided to switch out narrators.

    But to switch to a mono tone narrator the story becomes monotonous.

    I goes I have to find a new series to get!
