Summary

Seven hundred fifty years ago, human colonists left Earth and settled on the moons of the distant gas giant Ghara.

Civilization has flourished on Ghara's fertile moons, but humanity's drive to colonize and explore is still strong. Detecting plentiful mineral resources and a rich abundance of alien life on the nearby planet of Selva, the Gharian Colonists mount a dangerous expedition. Young newlywed marines Dustin and Melody will find themselves put to the ultimate test as they forge a way through fierce magnetic storms into an unknown and utterly alien world.

Tensions mount at home, as not all of the colonists support this mission and its high cost of resources, and many are outright hostile toward the marines and scientists who are setting out to colonize the new world.

As the peace the four colonies have shared for almost 200 years starts to fracture, what the expedition finds on Selva might very well be the worst thing humanity has ever dealt with.

this is an awesome science fiction book

I loved Chris Philbrook's Adrian's Undead diary so when I heard he wrote a military science fiction book I had to listen to it. military science fiction is my favorite genre of book and his Cronenberg style of an alien menace was awesome. I really hope he writes more in this universe

Such a great book!

What did you love best about Colony Lost?

This book has so much imagination and creativity in it.

What did you like best about this story?

This whole story is very unique. I like the troubles that they went through, and how real everything was. What I mean is that you can imagine yourself there and hearing the two sides to expand or not to expand and the trials and troubles they go though. With this book even though its set in other worlds will make you feel like you are there. Chris gives details without going overboard. All the way around start to finish. Great book.

Which character – as performed by Kevin Stillwell – was your favorite?

This was my first time listening to Kevin Stillwell narrate a book. I enjoyed it. All the voices were different and he kept you enveloped in the story with his cadence changes.

Any additional comments?

I went into this book expecting to enjoy it, but maybe only listen to it once. However that is not what happened. I loved the book, and can't wait for more books from this world to come. I should mention that when I was giving the highlights to my son he can't wait for it to be made into a video game.

much enjoyed

Military sci-fi & bug hunts are not generally my books of choice. The author & narrator did a great job of drawing me in from the opening to the finish. I recommend this for anyone looking for a sci-fi listen.

Best Philbrook story yet...

As a follower of Chris Philbrook since Adrian's Undead Diary, I was really looking forward to reading this book and I was not let down! what an awesome story line. Kevin Stillwell was perfect for this audiobook. I was upset when I finally got to the end of the book. I wanted more.

Star Travel! Marines! Bugs! Zombies!

This book starts a little slow. But just stick with it for a few hours and then it will take you on a thrill ride! Far exceeded my expectations and I didn't want it to end! Now I can only hope for a sequel! Now that the author has established his universe, I only hope that he does it again soon. Already growing attached to his characters so I hope he brings them back! Bravo Mr. Philbrook!

Great Book

I really loved this book and hope Chris does more. The addition of Kevin Stillwell as the narrator really knocked it out of the park. This is possibly my favorite book by Chris outside of his Adrian's Undead Diary series.

spitting is rude

Bugs are gross I can't believe that in the future Raid doesn't exist. Awesome Book!
