Publisher's Summary

In Alberta, Canada, at the foot of Dead Horse Mountain, a space capsule is discovered - a capsule that shouldn't exist. Thirty years earlier, Dr. Jan Lee, American entrepreneur and space tourist, purportedly destroyed this craft when he blew up the International Space Station in an act of unexplained sabotage. That event has since inspired conspiracy theories ranging from espionage to alien invasion.

Special Agents Lauren Madison and Ellis Cole have been assigned to investigate. But inside the capsule they find an even greater mystery: the remnants of a three-decade-old time-messaging experiment that could, within days, usher in a new era of manned space travel - or ignite an unimaginable disaster.

    "Ideal read for sci-fi fans!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. An essential read for anyone interested in the genre. Great action and adventure with a crisp writing style that gives detail but isn't too weighty. Brilliant dialogue between characters, especially the fbi guys.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It was interesting that we were presented with a diverse character set that made me engaged enough that I wasn't worried about who was the most interesting or important character to the plot.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Martial arts nerds that have the brains to send messages in time. I will leave it at that and not spoil an entertaining plot.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved the way the FBI guys bantered. Great characters.

    Story
    "Intriguing."

    This was quite interesting and intriguing, though got bogged down in details at times.

    The blurb pretty much says it all so here's my thoughts. Character wise, I really liked Special Agents Lauren Madison and Ellis Cole. They make a good team and their banter was fun to listen to. The science guys were well written and researched. They are uber smart and quite daunting!

    The plot was, at times hard to follow when they got into the nitty gritty of the time travel, but also interesting and thought provoking. I also liked how the story is told from the past and present. It all wraps up nicely in the end.

    In all, a good listen. I wanted a little more character development though. I felt like they all stayed the same and didn't grow. Other than that, It's a good book and I'm glad I listened to it.

    Paul Heitsch was amazing. This isn't the first book I've listened to that's narrated by him and it won't be my last. He is clear and concise and easy to listen to and puts his all into his performance.

    *I received this for review, this in no way affects my thoughts.*

    Story
    "This time-bending thriller will have you asking ?s"

    In Landfall, we follow two Special Agents as they discover more then they thought they would when they come across a crashed space capsule. A capsule that was thought to have been destroyed when the space station blew up nearly 30 years ago. Follow Lauren Madison and Ellis Cole as they discover what really happened on that fateful day nearly 30 years ago and try and prevent WWIII at the same time.

    Paul Heitsch does the narration for this and he has a great voice for a thriller novel. It's pacing is great and he just has a way of becoming the characters. I've listened to books that he's narrated before and I will continue to seek out his books because he does such a great job with them. Quality was perfect, listened very smooth with no hiccups at all.

    The story, while confusing due to the time-changing aspect of it was a blast. I like the ideas that the authors writes about within, they are very "this could happen." Which, to me, makes a story just that much more interesting.

    The two main characters had really great chemistry, both seperate and together. I hope that McWilliams will write other stories with these two.

    I always enjoy a 6 hour run-time audiobook because there's enough time to develop characters, find out who the enemie(s) are, and conclude. Usually this "conclusion" is just a "end of part 1" type. Not with Landfall, which makes my heart flutter with excitement. McWilliams concluded the story (to some degree), and didn't leave it hanging super open ended like some books are. Now, with that being said; he could easily continue the story and let us know what happens after the fact.

    Overall, a unique journey across space and time, without feeling like we've been there before. McWilliams is definitely an author I will be looking out for from now on.

    One of my only complaints was that the "mysterious virus" that is spoken of numerous times (to the point where no one shakes hands anymore) wasn't really explained at all. I'm a bio-thriller fan. I would have really, really liked to see a little more on the virus.

    Story
    "Short, and modestly satisfying."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Sure. Fired through this offering over a very rainy weekend working in the yard and on a couple of walks. It was fast paced, well researched ( even to the point of being abit too technical ) and on balance a decent book to have running in the background.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Frankly it had been foreshadowed extensively ( at least to this listener ) so nothing too surprising. Creative though.


    What does Paul Heitsch bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He was a fresh voice ( to me at least ) and brought authenticity to the characters. That said, the characters are relatively 2 dimensional, so he couldn't create


    Do you think Landfall needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Not really. It could be the start of a series ( and likely is ) but the story is self contained and wraps up nicely.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a decent, entertaining and well researched scifi offering. I can recommend it for a quick, interesting listen. Nothing earth shattering, but fine for what it is.

    "The Disappointment Is Real"

    The ending of this novel is a catastrophic failure of imagination. I read it thinking it couldn't possibly be as awful as others have said. Sadly, it is. Spare yourself the agony. READ SOMETHING -- ANYTHING! -- ELSE.

    I like sci-fi. I like time travel. This book has a slow pace that was hard to get into. The plot was interesting BUT... the ending left me going ......HUH???

    Overall it was ok.

    Any additional comments?

    I liked the book, it fairly easy to follow and the story was enjoyable. I do wish the author would have given some more explanation into the FBI agents and there abilities. I was left with she can't miss and he's an amazing fighter for no real reason. Also the ending was a little bit boring (but that could be because I always expect something amazing from this type of story) I just felt that all the lead up didn't really amount to much

    "Original plot."
    What did you like best about Landfall? What did you like least?

    The attention to detail. Seems like the author did his research. Unfortunately some of the science was confusing at times. Had to listen to some parts a couple of times to be sure what was what. Thought some of the things special agent Cole did were unrealistic.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending was ok. I thought everything was tied up nicely.


    What does Paul Heitsch bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He did a good job on the narration. Differentiated well between characters and male and female.


    Do you think Landfall needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No I think everything was pretty well wrapped up.
