Summary

A dead star is headed for Earth...The shift in Earth’s orbit will unleash a new ice age...And this summer will be our last.  

The news breaks - Logan Willis’s life is falling apart: he lost his job and found out that his wife is cheating on him all in the same day. Thinking that his world has ended, Logan checks into a hotel and turns on the TV to see that he's not far wrong - radio telescopes have detected mysterious signals coming from inside our solar system, and the source is moving toward us at over 500 miles per second. The media concludes that these signals must be of an alien origin. Still reeling from the news, Logan gets a phone call from his brother-in-law. Richard is talking crazy about the end of the world again, but this time he doesn’t sound so crazy.  

A deadly conspiracy unravels - Meanwhile, Richard, who is an astronomer working with the James Webb Space Telescope, is at the White House briefing the president to announce what he and the government have known for almost a decade: aliens are not invading, a frozen ball of gas is. The so-called rogue star is predicted to make a near pass with Earth, disrupting our orbit and unleashing an ice age, the likes of which we haven’t seen for millions of years.  

We’re putting a colony on Mars - Government insider and billionaire Akron Massey has received a steady flow of funding over the past decade for his company, Starcast, to put a colony on Mars. Over the same period he’s been using his personal fortune to create a colony closer to home where he plans to ride out the coming storm along with a thousand of the smartest people on the planet. Humanity will need seeds to plant in the ashes after the chaos clears.  

And wars ignite - When the true nature of the threat becomes known, the nations of Earth prepare to fight over all the warmest parts of the planet. But as war fleets set sail and armies begin marching south, a stunning discovery is made that will change a lot more than just the weather....

Started off OK then lost it

Like I say, it started off ok but the plot just zig zagged and was all over the place. I stopped listening by about 70% through

Couldn't Finish

Horrible, weak characters. Terrible plot development. Poor narration. Don't waste your time. I rarely return books, but I returned this one

Not that good

I don't understand all the positive reviews about this book. The plot was a different take on alien abductions true, but the characters were poorly written with no growth or development. There wasn't 1 character in this book with whom I could relate or even like. A bunch of bumbling idiot adults with bumbling/annoying kids. I really do not like when authors have to materialize women. The author kept repeating how beautiful Kate was throughout the entire book. Then, when Alex meets a girl, of course, she is absolutely stunningly beautiful. I won't be reading any more of this series.

REALLY, REALLY, Bad.

The first half of the book is like the worst of the "prepper" (aka SHTF) gun fetishist, end of the world control fantasy you've ever come across. The second half seems like an attempt to set up a longer series cheesy alien robot dialog and negotiation stories.

Love the narrator

Interesting premise, need to ignore the science, some odd plot points (advanced sentient robot who only learns Spanish, not English?), but overall good book and excellent narration, Mr. Jones really has a future

Rouge Star, Frozen Planet, Invasion by Aliens

This audible covers ever possible events in this series of 2 books. Year 2022 rouge star is found and that would come close enough to change the weather on earth the coastal area would go under water and area above Texas will freeze. That sounds bad you have a very dysfunctional family who are so stupid in so many ways you want them not to make it but they do and finally the Aliens who no one saw coming and invade the planet driving all human north to freeze.
Oh so much more to find out you have to listen to this audible!!

A very unique storyline.

I thought this series had a very unique storyline. These books contained elements of other scifi stories but they were well mixed in and made a very interesting read. The story is not predictable at all and there were very interesting characters. And there were plenty of twists and unexpected events. As much as I loved this series of 2 books I am glad it was only 2 books. Some stories get stretched out for many books and that can become a bit much. With this series, why mess with a good story line just to drag it out.

The sign of a great artist is knowing when to put the paint brush down.

Captivating

This was my first book from Scott, and I was intrigued by Darth Vader's son being the narrator.

I was incredibly pleased all around.

Great story... well executed.

You can tell Flynn is a bit green... he doesn't have the professionalism most big names have, but a few more books under his belt and he'll be a star.

Incredibly unlikable characters

The main family of four are like a family of narcissistic sociopaths. They're individually irritating and as a group they're collectively hair pulling. The character development is primarily whining, complaining and behaving selfishly or stupidly. I couldn't finish because life's too short.

Overall it was okay. Has some rough edges, though.

Writing a review with anything other than praise is difficult for me, and I hope my criticisms are taken constructively, in the manner in which I write them. Hundreds of positive reviews have been posted for this book, which is why I purchased it. However, I wasn't blown away by the quality of writing or the narration. There wasn't much in the way of depth for the characters or the storyline, but I wasn't turned off by any one thing in particular. Overall, it was a good concept, but the storytelling itself felt dry and smacked of an office worker reading off the minutes of a meeting. I could truly never quite tell if it was the emotionless narration or the somewhat bland writing that gave me that impression. I give Frozen Earth 4 stars in the Overall category because I was interested enough to finish it. I don't want to write off an entire series based on a less than stellar first installment. I will give the next book a chance and hope improvements were made in its production.

Potential Spoiler Warning! My one big gripe is that the mention of self-driving cars didn't happen until around Chapter 20. It seemed to be dropped into the story like a bomb, out of nowhere, and in an ill-timed fashion.
