Summary

No communication. Limited power. An unbreakable will to survive.

A violent blast of solar magnetic radiation plunges much of Earth into darkness. From the decaying orbit of the powerless ISS to a devolving Southeast Texas neighborhood and a secret doomsday bunker buried deep underneath the Colorado Rockies, The SpaceMan Chronicles tells the story of a stranded astronaut, his family and friends on the ground, and a shadowy conspiracy to rebuild the world in the shape of a new society.

It's written with the help of former astronauts, NASA team members, and well-respected astrophysicists that give the trilogy a unique sense of detail and desperation.

This bundle includes:

Spaceman: book one

Descent: book two

Retrograde: book three

Unique in its scope, excellent in its delivery!

I was able to purchase the boxed set of this series, which includes all three books of the trilogy; Spaceman, Descent, and Retrograde. I had listened to the first volume Spaceman over a year ago, enjoyed it, and reviewed it. Now I have the opportunity for the second and third volumes. Book two picks up as our intrepid astronaut Clayton Shepard manages an unguided reentry to get himself back on Terra firma. Not knowing exactly where he is Clayton makes an educated guess and heads for safety. Back at home everyone is dealing with the power loss and not knowing what has happened or how long it will last, which is probably worse. Deep Six Nikki and Rick are my favorites. Even though only a short amount of time has passed since the event the ne’er do wells begin to make themselves known. Meanwhile the government with select others make plans to tuck its tail and head for the mountain; Cheyenne Mountain that is. Or are they? Seems there is more to this selective evacuation than meets the eye. With the possibility of a second CME conspiracy theories abound as the government initiates the Descent Protocol. Illuminati in the house! This story gets better and better! Book three was a considerable slower pace than prior volumes. The second CME has come and gone with devastating results. This third book focused more on the conspiracy and conversely, Clayton’s efforts to get home. The Spaceman Chronicles trilogy is unique in its scope and excellent in its delivery of a possible future. I heartily recommend this series to any post-apocalyptic fan.

Abrahams +Pierce = unbeatable

a great story, plausible, well written. . Abrahams stories are always a good read, add Pierce and you won't be able to put it down.

Well done

I read, and listen to a lot of books, Post apocalyptic being my favorite. This book I rate as one of the best, that I've listened to. Great story line, great character development, and an informed author.

A good read

A good read. Good knowledge and imagination. I wish the characters were more realistic - you know, without super-human capabilities and surviving multiple crashes while severely wounded. But still an entertaining read. I love Kevin Pierce as a performer/narrator. Thanks

A great and harrowing tale. Being left in space after a CME is unfathomable

A true thriller!!!!

Really enjoyed this series. So well written AND Kevin Pierce has become my new favorite narrator, or at least in the very top five. Tom Abraham’s writing is truly top notch - he grabs your imagination, ties it in knots and runs rings around it before releasing it and you to the damaged world left to us. He is a truly gifted writer and does his research thoroughly. So glad I have more to read from him. Check this series out.

Didn’t want the book to end!

Amazing audiobook with well defined characters and storyline. I really enjoyed the astronaut angle, it added a new twist to the SHTF genre.

Great series...All in one place!

I am a fan of post-apocalyptic literature, and a fan of Tom Abrahams. Also a fan of Kevin Pierce. I found my first Tom Abrahams book while perusing all of the books narrated by Kevin Pierce. He is the best narrator out there. His voice is actually calming. Back to the book. I was very excited to see the box set of The Spaceman Series on Audible. I was planning on reading the Spaceman series when I was finished with The Traveler Series, also by Tom Abrahams. The Spaceman Series is edge of your seat exciting and holds your attention throughout with ups, downs, and a ton of scientific information. If, like me, you love to learn, this is an awesome find. Information about the sun, space, and space travel is peppered throughout the books and meshes with the story perfectly. You learn without even realizing it. As always with Tom Abrahams, he is very good at conveying his characters thoughts and feelings. You can almost feel what they feel and see what they see. I would sometimes find myself holding my breath or being startled by something that was happening to the characters. This is a wonderful set and I recommend it to my friends and family. Get it. I really believe you will enjoy it.

Love this Author-Narrator Team

Tom Abrahams and Kevin Pierce are a power duo. Once I start one of these books I can barely turn it off. The character development in A Dark World and the story telling is excellent. Loved Deep Six Nicki.

Can't wait to start a new book.
