The galaxy’s predominant species discovers a lost colony of their ancestors - humans - populating today’s Earth. Then, our genetic link draws the attention and enmity of their galactic rivals.

When a plan to elevate present-day Earth leads to an alien invasion, a team of military officers may be all that stands between humanity and certain annihilation. If you like action-packed novels, then you'll love the electrifying action in this apocalyptic thriller.

brilliant

very enjoyable edge of the seat. mr Cole set a bench mark with previous books he smashes it again but gets even better. As for the narration, its Mr Bray so there no one better. ( but dont tell him that)

Not bad

Story quite engaging with maybe too much Hollywood ish moments, but outstanding performance of R. C. Bray makes up for it. If you want an alien attack story then go for it

What a way to go

loved the whole series, so far, this book continued the fast pace, exciting, exhausting journey of close encounters with alien life.

Not good

First the positive, superb reading from R C Bray, kept the atmosphere going.

The premise is good and the cover bigs it up with Independence Day plus X-Files claim. My problem was the flakey characters and simplistic good / bad representation. Then there is the significant overlap with Independence Day, I could almost see Will Smith as the fighter pilot. And the female character OMG ... I won’t say any more as it cuts into the plot. I skipped quite a bit of the story and even listened on fast forward, I was able to pick up easily when re-starting. Says a lot I think.

Fantastically Written and Narrated

A suburb work of Fiction with a great believable storyline that just keeps on giving. It has it all, fear, wonder, death and glory all brought to life by R C Bray

Sorry, but it's nothing new.

I was excited to listen to this book based on the reviews left by other Audible members, but I have to say, I don't agree with them. There's nothing new here at all and certainly nothing that makes me want to pick up the next instalment. The performance by the exceptionally talented R. C. Bray, was brilliant, but surely he knew that most of what he was reading had already been written. Check out Craig Alanson's Expeditionary Force saga - also read by Mr Bray. Earth invasions, worm holes, alien tech, lizards, fully formed and believable characters.... and something this lacks - humour. Do yourself a favour and check it out, then compare for yourself.

I'm also left confused by the way Cole refers to his characters in so many different ways - first name, last name, rank... It's distracting - stop it please.

Rushed

I found the story good. We weren't starting on the back foot. Earth was ready ish. The story could have been fleshed out a bit more.
I will get book 2.

Fanfuckingtastic!!!

I can't stress enough how much I loved this story. this isn't your campy Roland Emmerich alien invasion story, it's smart SciFi, Dean Cole is on fire with this series. R.C. Bray is a genius narrator. he can get inside these characters heads, becoming them, making them all believable, putting the listener in the story. I can't wait for the next audiobook to be released!

As per usual for a great story read by R. C. Bray.

Just great. A new, yet refreshing and simplistic plot. Based on the "Aliens Attack" theme, but not as simple as one might think. There are pre-stories that lend sci-fi credibility. There are post-apocalyptic undertones which do not become overbearing. Good writing. Amazing narration. Fun, interesting more than with a read (listen).

Unnecessary and Stupid romance ruined book

Mr. Cole seems to be the kind of author who doesn't have much experience writing about romance. It started with a bang and I thought WOW this is going to be a good one. I couldn't have been more wrong. The romantic relationship in this book ruined it for me. It was poorly written and did not advance the plot in anyway. It was complete sappy crap. "Jake looked into her beautiful crystal blue eyes and fell another day in love with her". Really? Why just another day? Why not another 2 or 3 days? Hell, why not another week or another month? Of course, the female protagonist was the typical beautiful blue eyed bombshell blonde. No brunettes for this author. I couldn't finish the book. I just could not do it. I'd pass over this book for something better written.

More, more, more!

This was a fantastic, exhilarating story! I can't wait for RC Bray's recordings of the additional books to come out!

it would be best to listen to First Contact prior to this one for additional background, but it's not required.

interesting premise that is never expanded upon

starts out all right but once the curtain is pulled back it's like a pair of socks after you open a Christmas present.

Meh

Mildly interesting story, However, I am having a hard time with the dialogue, it's pedestrian and predictable. I can't even finish this one. there are better books like Expeditionary Force, The Synchronicity War, Fear the Sky

the pacing is all wrong

sadly, you have to wait about 2h before things get interesting. by "interesting", i refer to 1. the alien villains making an appearance, and 2. the alien villains being the only interesting characters in the book. sure, there's action in the first two hours, sort of an "x-files lite" episode including a shadowy car chase, but seriously...

it's good for authors to experiment with different parts of a genre in order to develop a compelling storyline, character arcs, and so on; however, successful books have to actually deliver on those elements. this book did not.

it is a hard slog to finish this work...
